This is the first “shout-out” I’ve really given on this site–for what it’s worth– and it goes to the Ropeadope record label and weblog for their unrelenting dedication to music that grooves. Last night, I downloaded a dreadfully funky Herbie Hancock podcast, and felt the need to give them a mention. I’ve cited the Ropeadope label before and also mentioned Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters.
But for some reason, I felt the label deserved a full posting for their efforts to bring to our ears some great music that’s jazzy, funky, improv-centric, and always interesting in its textures, tones and grooves. I can’t wait to catch the latest Ropeadope project coming through Chi-town: Bobby Previte’s Coalition of the Willing, with Charlie Hunter, Skerik, and Robert Walter (at Martyr’s on 11/10). The music at this show should be plenty of the aforementioned adjectives!
