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!

Bobby Previte’s Coalition truly, truly rocks. Be there, or be left out in the cold. Oh, and get the CD, you won’t be able to stop tapping along.
