Introducing: Reverend Barry and Funktastic Soul featuring The Hellacious Horns

posted December 16th, 2016 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, Introducing | 0

Bringing a little “Uptown Funk” to Southwestern Florida, Reverend Barry and Funktastic Soul featuring The Hellacious Horns (RBFSHH) start the party wherever they go. Merging together the missing pieces to the puzzle in 2013, in an effort to pay homage to the legendary funk bands Earth, Wind and Fire and Tower of Power, “Reverend Barry” Nicholson, band leader, lead vocals and bassist assembled the winning team featuring a power-packed horn section. While initially not an easy road to finance what it takes practically to put together an eight-piece band, their established and local loyal fanbase reps full force, selling out shows.

Rev Barry – Funktastic Soul and the Hellacious Horns from Curt Bowen on Vimeo.

Although clearly inspired by the 70’s and 80’s funk and soul greats that came before them like James Brown, Zapp, Stevie Wonder and The Commodores, RBFSHH can also rock hard as you can hear on tracks like “You Better Know” on their latest effort ‘SxyGdLuv’. It’s almost impossible to stay seated as your body instinctively wants to dance on hot songs like “Play By The Rules” and “Say You Love Me”. After one listen of the album, it’s easy to hear the “tight, funky horns, and other classic funk elements like Talkbox, Moog bass, Wurlitzer, Rhodes, clean guitar and slap bass” bandleader Barry highlights, that make the songs stay in the groove and never let go. As Montana reared producer (who interestingly once helped his dad as a child birth a llama) and jack of many trades musician Chet Gass adds, they took care to include tracks that are “well-written with catchy melodies and hooks” and it shows.

Introducing: Pablo Embon

posted November 28th, 2016 by Brian Rutherford | Filed under: Introducing | 0

Pablo Embon originally hails from Argentina, rich in its history of tango and Andean folk music, where he learned from famed classical guitarist Eduardo Isaac. Pablo played in several modern bands and as a single musician in his youth.cache_14832517

Later in life, Embon immigrated to Israel where its unique blend of klezmer, Hebrew and Middle Eastern music no doubt had an influence on the musician who at this point had already spent years creating and performing unique modern and alternative jazz compositions.

Embon started his music education at very young age. As a child he developed intuitive composition skills, adopting piano and guitar as his core musical instruments. Later on, he pursued advanced music education in the composition and harmonization fields and won recognitions in several public music contests in Argentina.

pemecataRead/Listen

Once in Israel, Embon became an independant musician. He continued his education in music recording, production and orchestration, releasing nine music albums between 2004 and 2009, all including original composition and arrangements. These albums contain different music styles, such as alternative, smooth and fusion jazz, orchestral instrumentals and solo piano with some classical music influences.

Embon is not a purist when it comes to jazz. His music is fusion, drawing on direct on indirect influences that include Pat Metheny, Azymuth (a great band from Brazil that emerged in the 1970s), the late bassist Jaco Pastorius and Chick Corea’s Return to Forever (especially the early edition with Airto Moreira and Joe Farrell).

With over 35 years of music experience, Pablo Embon has the advantage over other egregiously talented musicians in that he is highly accomplished on multiple instruments and has had the privilege of studying and composing in vastly different geographic sectors.
