Zu Beginn der siebziger Jahre symbolisierten Tower of Power die perfekte Alchemie aus komplexem Jazz, groovendem Soul und energiegeladenem Funk. Jeder einzelne Musiker der Band aus Oakland ist eine Koryphäe, jedes Album wird auf den Millimeter genau produziert, jede Vokalpartie gleicht einem Gesangsunterricht und jede Einlage der (hochkarätigen) Bläsersektion einer Spezialnummer: Francis Rocco Prestia mit seinem hypnotisierenden Bass, David Garibaldi mit seinem gestochen scharfen Schlagzeug, Bruce Conte mit seiner niemals geschwätzigen Gitarre, Chester Thompson mit seiner souligen Orgel und die vom Saxofonisten und Leader Emilio Castillo angeführte, aus fünf Groove-Meistern bestehende Bläsersektion förderten ein Album nach dem anderen zu Tage, die von den Groove-Fans angehimmelt wurden, in erster Linie das gleichnamige Tower of Power (1973), Back to Oakland (1974) und Urban Renewal (1975). Diese Saga hörte nie auf. Niemals! Und seither folgten nacheinander etwa sechzig Musiker, die alles daran setzten, damit diese lodernde Flamme des Funk nicht verlöscht.



Diese züngelnde Flamme brennt heiß wie je zuvor, das beweist dieses, im Juni 2018 in Oakland, ihrem kalifornischen Hauptsitz, mitgeschnittene Live-Album. Es war ein Konzert anlässlich des 50. Jahrestages seit der Gründung von Tower of Power. Für den unschlagbaren Emilio Castillo eine willkommene Gelegenheit, einige Virtuosen (darunter ein paar ehemalige Gruppenmitglieder!) einzuladen, u. a. den Saxofonisten Lenny Pickett (SNL), den Keyboarder Chester Thompson (Santana), den Gitarristen Bruce Conte und den Sänger Ray Greene. Das Repertoire macht daraus ein umso größeres Event, weil Tower of Power ihre größten Hits Soul Vaccination, What Is Hip?, So Very Hard to Go, aber auch You're Still a Young Man neu interpretieren. Ein explosives Live. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Curtis Mayfield, Black Music Matters

Curtis Mayfield ist ein Ästhet der Gitarre, der von Hendrix geliebt wird, ein Sänger mit einem verrückten Falsett, der von Prince verehrt wird, und ein hochkarätiger Songwriter, der Symphonien mit Funk, Gospel und Soul für die große Leinwand geschaffen hat. Zwanzig Jahre nach seinem Tod passt seine politisch engagierte Musik immer noch zu Amerika.

Was geht ab, Marvin Gaye?

Es war einmal "What's Going On", eins der größten Alben der Soulmusik, das vor genau 50 Jahren veröffentlicht wurde, oder wie Marvin Gaye die Geschichte des Labels Motown und der populären Musik der 70er Jahre veränderte...

Daft Punk, nichts mehr hinzuzufügen?

Acht Jahre nach Random Access Memories, das das künstlerische Konzept des 18 Jahre zuvor erschienenen Homework weiterführt, machen Daft Punk Schluss. Als ob nach diesem letzten Album, dem Höhepunkt einer Karriere in Form einer Hommage an die Popkultur der 1970er und 1980er Jahre, keine Neuerfindung mehr möglich wäre…
