DEE ALEXANDER’S EVOLUTION ARKESTRA FUNKIN’ WITH ELECTRIC SOUL
Jimi Hendrix/James Brown Tribute 2012 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the South Shore Cultural Center, Chicago, Illinois; December 7, 2012. Very good FM broadcast.
It started as a bongo beat – a nod to James Brown, just after his death in late 2006. Then came a few signature riffs. And an ecstatic response from the crowd. Before long, the Godfather of Soul was permanently embedded in the Evolution Ensemble’s repertoire. For leader Dee Alexander, a powerful and versatile vocalist, it was all part of the same continuum – as was the music of Jimi Hendrix, whose music carried the same revolutionary weight. Commissioned by the Jazz Institute of Chicago, Alexander and the expanded Evolution Arkestra sing the body electric in a free program on the city’s south side. – npr.org
