A Night with Motown: Jr Walkers Allstar Band

16.7.2009 >> Otava Factory
17.7.2009 >> Otava Factory

(US)
soul, funk, R&B with pop influence

1960-luvulla keksittiin monia hienoja asioita, jotka historia on todistanut ajattomiksi, vaikka ne syntyessään kiteyttivät tuolle optimistiselle ajalle tyypillisen horisontin laajentamisen ja yhteisen hauskanpidon. Motown on ehdottomasti yksi niistä. Pop-musiikin suuriin tarinoihin lukeutuvasta levy-yhtiöstä kasvoi kesäinen musiikkityyli, jossa upea soul-laulu, R&B:in sytyttävä rytmiikka ja tarttuvat pop-melodiat punottiin saumattomaksi kokonaisuudeksi.

Detroitilaisyhtiön musta perustaja Berry Gordy kaavaili Motown-musiikin alusta asti roturajat ylittäväksi. Siinä enemmän kuin onnistuttiin. Holland-Dozier-Holland-kolmikko, Norman Whitfield, Barrett Strong, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye ja Stevie Wonder loihtivat sävelmiä, jotka ovat puhutelleet ja puhuttelevat kaiken värisiä ihmisiä kaikkialla maailmassa.

Edesmenneen saksofonistilegenda Jr Walkerin Allstar Band koostuu lukemattomissa Motown-liemissä marinoiduista soittajista laulupuolen levätessä yhtä kokeneen The Ladeez -kolmikon huomassa. Esther Todd, Phyllis Parham ja Kimberly Smith on koulittu mm. Temptationsin ja Miraclesin matkassa. Luvassa on aitoon Motown-tyyliin vedettyjä helmiä mm. The Supremesilta, Martha & The Vandellasilta, The Marvellettesilta ja Gladys Knight & The Pipsiltä sekä tietysti funkyjä Jr Walker -instrumentaaleja, kuten Shot Gun, Road Runner ja blaxploitaatio-klassikko Cleo’s Back.
