Hot Funky News For You!
Jump Up in the tailgate of
Feed The Chicken
On December 17th we released Feed The Chicken ft. Stanton Moore, Cory Wong, Michael B Nelson and Tucker Antell. On January 16th it also became available on Apple Music with a slightly altered cover – as requested by them!
In hot pursuit, on January 21st, we’ll present you with another wall-to-wall high energy track called Jump Up ft. Incognito drummer Francesco Mendiola, rising Boston tenor sax star Tucker Antell, head of Berklee College of Music piano department and longstanding Funkestra collaborator Dave Limina and UK guitar legend Mike Outram. Boosh, Boosh!
‘The Masterlink sessions’ are a joint venture of James Welch (MLP studio) and Stefan Redtenbacher (Redtenbacher’s Funkestra) to strengthen the community of creative and open-minded musicians who love Funk, Soul, Blues and Jazz.
‘Jump Up’ is another high-energy and unalloyed Funk release by Redtenbacher’s Funkestra, best-known for their bass driven original (Jazz) Funk penned by Stefan Redtenbacher. Francesco Mendolia (Incognito) is shining with a high intensity drum performance full of vigor inspiring solo flights by Dave Limina (Hammond) and Tucker Antell (Sax).
Any Funk music lover worth their salt will know the tune ‘The Chicken’. Written by former musical director and tenor saxophone player Pee Wee Ellis and lifted to further heights by legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, ‘The Chicken’ remains a classic and a favorite at jam sessions and impromptu music at get-togethers. Possibly needless to say, but I always loved this funky opus.
From the Quincy Jones documentary to the release of ‘Part of Me’, ‘The Vinyl Collection’ (digital masters) and ‘Feed The Chicken’, as well as or UPCOMING gig at the Colchester Arts Center to the Masterlink Sessions…all in this blog.
