Santana And The Isley Brothers Show The Power Of Peace With New Collaborative Album

first_imgThe Isley Brothers and Carlos Santana effortlessly merge their sounds on their collaborative new album, Power Of Peace. This combination of a legendary vocal-based group and one of history’s most fiery guitar players is straight off any audiophile’s wishlist. While projects combining such long-standing musical forces sometimes fail due to issues with vision and ego, that is surely not the case here. It’s possible that Santana’s prior successes on the charts with a variety of diverse artists have helped hone him into a fearless wandering gun. However, Power Of Peace truly seems as though it’s the result of two musical families coming together.Celebrate Carlos Santana’s 70th Birthday With His Phil Lesh & Friends At LOCKN’ [Pro-Shot]Founding member Ronald and younger brother Ernie Isley have been making music together for decades, and their bond is bordering telepathic. While Carlos Santana and his wife, Cindy Blackman, haven’t been together nearly as long, the two certainly seem to operate on the same wavelength. While the Isley Brothers helped fuse rock, soul, and funk into a chart-topping sound, Carlos Santana was wowing future collaborator Ernie Isley at Woodstock.Nigel Hall Releases Catchy Isley Brothers Cover With QuestloveAny worries about the Power Of Peace conceptually are alleviated on the pace-setting opening track, “Are You Ready.” Blackman sets an aggressive tone for Ron Isley‘s impassioned rendition of the question at hand. The mix of guitars is quite obviously strong in Santana’s direction, though Ernie does sneak some licks in while holding down tight rhythm work. Check out that track and the rest of the album in the video link below, then check out our continued thoughts on the project below.As always, any note played by Santana demands attention, but his style is clean enough to allow Ron Isley plenty of room. The covers from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Chambers Brothers and other all-star creators give the core band and their cast of collaborators plenty of opportunities to do what they do best. The familiarity of the material on the album also sets the table for a follow-up collaboration with new original material—Santana has been open about the fact he’s been composing.Closing Power Of Peace with a lengthy rendition of Billie Holiday‘s “God Bless The Child” allows each creative voice a chance to shine one last time. Like previous tracks, the tempo build and the crescendo are straight out of both artists’ playbooks and strike a chord deep in the psyches of longtime fans and fresh ears alike. The harmony of these artists comes as much from their shared attitudes on life as their musical passions. Their like-minded views on the power of love and transcending to higher states meld so easily that it would be a crime if this is last we hear from these legends.last_img read more


Bill O’Reilly Is Super Salty About Millennials Standing And Dancing At The Fleetwood Mac Show [Video]

first_imgAfter postponing a number of dates due to Stevie Nicks‘ illness, Fleetwood Mac will resume their rescheduled tour in October. For more information, head here. Conservative political commentator and disgraced TV host Bill O’Reilly has plenty of experience being indignant about things. He did it on TV for years as a network and cable news anchor until he was canned by FOX after details of his many sexual harassment incidents came to light. Now, he complains on his podcast, No Spin News.There’s plenty to be testy about in today’s political climate. But you know what O’Reilly’s really up in arms about? Millennials standing up to dance at concerts.On a recent episode of his No Spin News podcast, O’Reilly complained about his experience at Fleetwood Mac‘s March show at Madison Square Garden. “The music of Fleetwood Mac is classic, it’s timeless. And there are some songs where you want to jump up and dance. And that’s fine, that’s fine. But the Millennial/Generation Z people would never sit down. From the time it started to the time it ended, they were standing up. And there were people behind them! … There were people behind them, and the Millennials didn’t care. Not at all.”After bragging about how much all the MSG ushers love him, he went on to recount a harrowing story about a personal encounter with one of these wretched, inconsiderate Millennials during the show. “This drunken guy stands right next to me and my party, on the aisle, he didn’t have a seat. He just kinda ran down and stood in the aisle, weaving like this …” Don’t worry, big Bill stood up and scared away that dastardly wook.But O’Reilly wasn’t done whining there, continuing, “The people who were standing and dancing, they couldn’t care less…what they were doing. … And some of these people were gyrating… and I’m going, ‘You know what this is all about? This is about narcissism.’” He went on to mansplain how younger Americans are all addicted to their phones, and that’s why they like to stand up at concerts…or something.Sorry, Bill. Some people just like to dance. You should try it sometime.You can watch the clip below:last_img read more
