Chuck. That’s a key phrase within the DC metropolitan area. Chuck was synonymous with having a good time, crankin, blues, jazz, pockets, congos and DC’s indigenous music Go-Go. Chuck Brown was deemed the God father of Go-Go, i’ll take it a step further and say that he was the daddy. (no Maury) Chuck made go go his own thing, super musical and his reuse of jazz standards and red clay blues made the old heads and youngins sing along. So today i’m jive hurt. Chuck is a DC staple, like Ben Ali of Ben’s Chili bowl, like Bohemian Caverns like the Big Chair..ain’t no party without Chuck for real. Chuck gave the blessing when grace was to be said on the mic. Chuck cut the turkey and showed everybody else how to serve it up right, dress it up, keep it classy no matter ones lot in life. It didn’t matter if you were fresh “out” with the plastic bag full of your belongings or about to get your PHD, Chuck made everybody feel the same. That’s what i’ll miss. Chuck Brown was 75. I’m blown. Prayers up for the fam, the legacy will continue. #RIP
IAD to Amsterdam, to Croatia (Zagreb), to Germany (Esllingen, Koln), to Austria(Vienna, Schwaz), to Slovenia (Maribor) to IAD. 2 weeks out, great food, wine, GRAPPA!!!!!, people, cities and trains. I love train tours. Nothing like it if you have backline…quite the opposite if you are lugging equipment. I had a blast, met great people and rocked out. This time out was with the Pro-Verb Trio (me, Dafnis Prieto & Jason Lindner). I dig the perpetual sideman paradigm, it keeps you from bearing the stress of leadership and especially within this configuration, we all improvise which means that cues are what you make them and mastery of your particular instrument is beyond “key”. so jyeah. some snaps from abroad. The countryside was killer, the ICE high speed train in Germany makes me want for the US train system to get up to par. It’s crazy. Them jawns are 98% on time and you can get anywhere in a few hours. c’mon DOT, can we get this thing cracking? I mean you can go from Paris to Marseille in 2 hours on the TGV. DC to Miami on a highspeed jont in like 4-6 hours nonstop, would be killer. 1st class and food service…c’mon b. Bah…oh well. Passport stamps got some new additions,so i’m happy. Easy.
me @J.benok and @yUthe78er got together to do a podcast that seeks to relay the history of DC Hip Hop properly. Bought to you in part by FMWJ’s RIK site as well as the good folks at House Studios. Jyeah!
