New Release: The Greyboy Allstars - What Happened To Television?
Check out the newest album from The Greyboy Allstars, What Happened to Television?, out today. The first studio album from the group in ten years, there is a lot of jazz-funk material here that had been waiting years to hatch.
The Greyboy Allstars, produced by DJ Greyboy, blend a host of sounds and influences to make a full-length groove out of TV, from hip-hop to soul, funk to jazz, and even some gospel-style vocals ("How Glad I Am", featuring The Living Sisters fronted by Inara George). It isn't often that you get to hear such diverse artists on an album together, and it actually works.
"Still Waiting" is one of the more uptempo cuts from the album, with a funk guitar groove, horns and keys that are guaranteed to get you in the groove. Try also "Old School Cylons", an instrumental jam that shows off Karl Denson's flute skills.
To get a taste of the GBA sound, listen to "How Glad I Am" and "V Neck Sweater" from the album.
The Greyboy Allstars will be at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore on May 11.
