Bob Marley - live at Amandla Music Festival

Music Television presents Bob Marley at the Amandla Festival 1979

Amandla - Festival of Unity, was a music festival held July 21, 1979, at Harvard Stadium in Boston, Massachusetts. The theme and unity was between those who supported and celebrated the liberation of South Africa and also those who supported the on-going efforts of people in Boston to end racism locally, on the streets, within schools, places of work and within families.

This performance of Bob Marley and The Wailers is fantastic! There is a introduction by activist, Dick Gregory, that is peppered with political and social talk regarding issues of that moment in time. It's a piece of history that is classic if you are one of Dick Gregory's many fans. The music starts at the 15 minute 33 Second point. Turn it up, think, groove and enjoy! GC

Bob Marley & The Wailers - FULL CONCERT: 1 hour and 49 minutes

Imagine | Playing For Change

A Message from our friends at Playing for Change:

World Praying for Etta James

The most under rated soul singer in the world, Etta James, is very ill with a combination of leukemia, Hepatitis C and other condition. Doctors have labeled her condition as terminal.

Fans from around the world are saying their prayers in hopes of a miracle that can turn her health around.

Every time I hear her voice, it kills me. Songs like "I'd Rather Go Blind" is so superb that there are few words or descriptions that can do her work justice. Her brand of soul is pure perfection and raw emotion. GC

Etta James - I'd Rather Go Blind

And, At Last. One of the greatest songs of all time, without a doubt.

Glenn Fredly feat. Endah n Rhesa & Sandhy Sondoro - Let's Say Love

Sandhy Sondoro, who is just one of the performers on this track and video is one of the most soulful Indonesian artists I have ever found. With a rich sounding voice similar to Michael McDonald with a little John Mellencamp mixed in, Sandhy is a brilliant love song writer who delivers tasty soul/pop performances all by himself with a guitar. Very happy to have come across this song this morning with some other Indo collaborators who are equally fantastic. Enjoy! GC

Nneka featuring Ziggy Marley & Eeday

Music Television, MusicTelevision.Com, Nneka, Gregory J. Chamberlain

Anyone who has read from this blog, or the archive, knows of Nneka. Here is a track not available on iTunes U.S., but is available on iTunes in other markets. The track entitled "Express Yourself" features features Ziggy Marley & Eeday.

Last year, Nneka toured the U.S. opening for Ziggy Marley's brother Damian Marley. It's great to see the Marley clan has embraced Nneka's music. I feel that Bob Marley would surely appreciate Nneka for the messages she puts forth in most, if not all, of her songs. She is one of my top 5 favorite artists since I first heard her music! gc

Nneka - THIS IS "IT"

Photo of Nneka by Gregory Chamberlain twitter.com/GregChamberlain for Music Television

There is no better way to describe Nneka than to simply say she has "it".

Her songs are and lyrics are deep and complicated. They personify an independent voice and rebel spirit that challenges the status quo where greed and corruption in her native Nigeria and throughout the world is rampant. Right out of the box, in the feel and groove department, she has that "it" thing too. It's one of the main ingredients.

What separates Nneka from most of the rest in the supposed top tier is that her songs dig hard to say something important. This leads me to wonder why she is not in the top tier, yet.  I long for the day that she and artists like her are the top tier that exists. Perhaps in due time, substance will trump bling.

Her songs weave in and out from what seem like love songs at first, into geopolitical humanitarian statements often pointed at unnamed political leaders. At least her songs naturally conjure thoughts of certain leaders without even mentioning their names. Her songs make those who listen think. Nneka really reaches deep for truth which she considers to be real love.

This first song below is one of my all time favorites. It is a beautiful and timeless recording, as is the music video, and it is a very heavy and sad statement about the state of affairs in many parts of Africa and where she originates in Lagos Nigeria, where this video was filmed.

Nneka - Africans (originally released in Europe 2007)

This is an amazing live take of Nneka performing one of her signature songs titled Heartbeat. The studio version of this song (second one down from here) is the very first song I ever heard of Nneka's years ago. And, it did not sink in at first listen. It took a few listens to interpret the meaning of her lyrics clearly, but when I did I felt her depth and it had impact. The song is screaming at political leaders questioning if they hear the heartbeat of their electorate or in the case of dictatorships, the people they rule. I like the interview that follows live take in the video below. It's a tiny window of insight into Nneka. I have had a few chances to speak with her in person and I came away feeling her authenticity is genuine.

Nneka - Heartbeat (live in France with French/English Subtitle after song - 2009)

Nneka is some sort of female Bob Marley in terms of that activist spirit as she stumps for a conscious state.

She has a new record out for late 2011 titled Soul Is Heavy. It has not yet been released in America, but Amazon is offering up expensive import CD's. No idea why Sony Music is withholding the U.S. release, but they making a big mistake, in my humble opinion. Nneka is the kind of artist who deserves development and big pushes in the marketplaces of the world, everywhere.

This next track kills me. I love the live one, that is first below, as well as the next one which is the studio version. The song seems to be about politicians who make promises, but who fail to remember or live up to their promises, but it could be interpreted many different ways.

Nneka - Do You Love Me Now - Live On The Streets of Paris.

Bliz - Transition - (Rap - Warning: Explicit Content)

Heard the rapper known as Bliz for the first time, yesterday, after becoming acquainted with Redd Pen Media after they introduced themselves. Dug through Redd Penn's numerous music videos and when I heard this Bliz track entitled Transition. The song made me think hard about life's harsh realities and wonder how life can end up that way. Bliz lays down so many rhymes that are so true, such as "Guess you can't say if you ain't never been, man..."

It's a testiment to the reality of thug life and the prison industrial complex. I can't help but think and feel: "There for but the grace of God go I" when I hear a rap like this. It's thought provoking, but hopefully not provoking kids to reach for this. Enough of that already! Kudos to Bliz for his well done delivery. Hopefully he's just acting. Kudos to the director, Juan Ortiz, for the outstanding light & photography. - GC

Cecilia Noel & The Wild Clams - A Queen of Funky Latin Salsa Jazz

MusicTelevision.Com presents Cecilia Noel

I've been following Cecilia Noel since the mid 1990's when her ex-husband Tris Imboden (famous for drumming for Chicago and a great California surf inspired band known as Honk in his earliest years) saw me filming the China Club ProJam and asked me to shoot some live music concerts of his then wife when she had just been signed to Sony Music.

The A&R guy, Kenny Komisar, who signed Cecilia Noel to Sony was way ahead of his time. Komisar signed Cecilia just before the beginning of the Latin/Pop explosion that Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez were part of. The band that Cecilia Noel put together as Cecilia Noel & The Wild Clams was a magnificent undeniable organic cuban inflused latin flavor that killed.  I am talking real burning hot unmanufactured blazing funky assed latin music! The record label, at large, however, just did not get Cecilia Noel at that time, and accidentally let her go, releasing her from her recording contract. Just a couple of years later, that Latin scene exploded.

However, none of that bad timing ever got in the way of Cecilia's burning desire for the show to go on. She built a independent movement on her own. She worked hard, playing tons of shows has toured to every continent and numerous countries.

Always known for having the creme of the crop session musicians in her band, not to mention to sexy Wild Clam singers, Cecilia Noel has staked her claim as one of the truest Latin/Funk/Jazz Salsa Queens the world has ever seen. Look at the size of her band, and the quality of the artists and it's easy to calculate the amount of people power it takes to run such a tight ship. This is a great example of what real music from real musicians is all about! Enjoy! GC

Kimbra - Plain Gold Ring (Live at Sing Sing Studios)

Back in the so called good old days, Warner Bros. Records was one place I relied on for a never ending flow of the greatest artists, bands, songs and related music videos. I am talking about back in the Mo Ostin days.

It made me feel better about Warner Bros. Records today, when I caught wind of a new Warner Bros Records Australia artist known as Kimbra. Kimbra, who is actually a New Zealander, is unique, has passion and that "it" thing. GC

Brother Ali - Uncle Sam Goddamn (Music Video)

Just realized that I've never posted Brother Ali to this blog, although this song was once featured on the front page of MusicTelevision.Com for a period in the past.

Brother Ali is controversial to some people. I've heard people argue whether he was black, white or Albino. I always think, "who fucking cares?". And, when an acquaintance brought up the video you are about to see a few days after he saw it, he tried to tell me it had white supremacist tones, as if Brother Ali was connected to that sort of thing. He is most certainly not.

People really drive me nuts for they are either not paying attention, have some sort of attention deficit or are just plain ignorant. Ignorant is something Brother Ali is not. He has a basic sense of U.S. history in a reality based sense that is not the candy coated version that is spoon fed to kids in school. He seems to be putting into words what should be obvious to American's regarding the game that is being played against them by the powers that be. Wake up America!

This democracy smells like hypocrisy and those who are part of it with their occupy Wall Street class war, just worried about your way of life. Where were you when the U.S. was dropping the bombs, in the longest U.S. war in history (that's not really a war, but a slaughterhouse and occupation for resources). That fact is the true reason the U.S. is beyond bankrupt. The Occupy Wall Street crowd should be change their theme to Occupy DC, where the enablers of the wars and the crony capitalism in Congress and The White House are supposed to be working for us, but aren't. They are the real demons and we shalt not take our eye off the ball like this. 1% of Wall Street was involved in the destruction of the dollar and the U.S. and global economies. However, 98% of Congress was involved in supporting these wars, out of control spending on every level, catering to that 1% of Wall Street, bailing out corporations who should have gone through bankruptcy and so much more.

It's hard to argue with Brother Ali's song. "Welcome to the United Snakes, Home of the thief, Home of the slave..." is how rapper Brother Ali starts off the beginning of his portrayal of a flawed electorate and the related truths of U.S. Government Policy. Think! GC

Sara Bareilles - Gonna Get Over You (Music Video)

Sara Bareilles is the real deal. She is kind, sweet and humble. Used to see her when she was a waitress at a pioneering craft beer gastropub, long before she got signed to Epic Records. She was a rare exception, for any waitress, in that she never talked desperately about being an artist or trying to make it, unlike many NY/LA 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, one can't stop loving her and her music. GC

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.

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

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)

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. Enjoy! GC

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

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.... nobody quite like her.

Feeling Good: Where Muse meets Nina Simone

Go to the following link to hear a pretty great live take of Muse performing the song made famous by Nina Simone titled Feeling Good. It was recorded live at Wembly Stadium in June 2007. After watching, come back here for more :)

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.

This is the Nina Simone version of Feeling Good which appeared on her 1965 album titled I Put a Spell on You
