Sara Bareilles - Gonna Get Over You

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

Sara Bareilles is the real deal. She is kind, sweet and humble. Used to see her when she was a waitress in a Santa Monica beer joint, long before she got signed to Epic Records. She was a rare exception who never talked desperately about being an artist or trying to make it, like most waitresses who cannot resist informing everyone. Bump into her now, and she is exactly the same easy going person she always was. That says a lot about her character and it is part of her charm :) As a result, can't stop loving her and her music.

Ray Charles- Live In France 1961 (A New Documentary Coming October 25)

A fantastic looking film trailer is getting me exicted about a live concert film of Ray Charles from 1961. The films presenters are hosting a one-time only advanced screening October 20 at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles. The film is to be released straight to DVD, being shipped by retailers to advance buyers beginning October 25.

Lost for 50 years, 1 hour and 45 minutes of newly discovered 16mm concert films with fantastic audio recordings from the 1961 Antibes Jazz Festival in France with Ray Charles in his prime along with the original Raeletts and his band that included David "Fathead" Newman and Hank Crawford.



These were the first concerts Ray Charles had ever done in Europe. A must see!

Femi Kuti - Beng Beng Beng

Music Television presents Femi Kuti

Femi Kuti is a Nigerian musician and the eldest son of the late great Nigerian music king and afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Femi was born in Lagos, Nigeria, the same place one of my favorite artists, Nneka, is from. The thing these three powerful artists share in common is their songs that exude their strong commitment to social and political causes. The region of Lagos, in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, is a corporatist haven where politicians and the energy companies have cultivated an environment of crony capitalism which has led to the environmental destruction of the region as oil companies rape and pillage both the land, waterways, air and the downtrodden citizens of the region. The kinds of routine oil spills in the Niger Delta make the U.S. Gulf of Mexico oil spill by BP seem like just a little bit of spilled milk.

With that said, this happens to be one song of Femi Kuti's that is not so political. It's pure sexy Cuban infused Nigerian soul that is it's own universal language. Enjoy! GC

Totally Baddass Rock Band - White Bone Rattle

Music Television presents White Bone Rattle

The Maidstone, United Kingdom, based band known as White Bone Rattle totally kicks ass. Turn it up and enjoy! gc

White Bone Rattle - Rise with the Morning


Rise With The Morning seems to be their first real video. The rest of their songs on YouTube are not really videos, just the songs. There are a few grainy phone cam videos of live shows too. White Bone Rattle is definitely worth a browse because you'll hear some serious hard rock, very organic, that reminds me of where early Led Zeppelin meets Black Sabbath. For me, it's music from when I was in grade school in the 1970's.

Nneka - Do you love me now (live session @ streets of Paris)

posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

Nneka is one of the most inspired artists I've ever met. This is a recent clip that began appearing on YouTube recently. She has a way of taking love song and making them heavy.



Her signature songs such as Africans get political and social.


Heartbeat starts out like a love song, but has political undertones woven in the lyrics.


To me, she has got the activist of Bob Marley inside of her. Every day I wish I was finding more artists like her. But, Nneka is rare.

They had the whole audience singing along, as better evidenced via this cell phone take from the nosebleed section, which actually captures the essence of the crowd better than the slick version from above. It makes one realize how big of an act Muse really is.
