Came out 2 days ago. Killing, as Nate East always does!
Great mix and the bass sound is great.
I always tell this story when I see a Nate East thread - I was the guy who followed him as the bassist for the Crawford high School jazz band here in San Diego. Big shoes for me to fill, being as that I had just started playing bass back in 1976... So yes, I was doomed.
Really a great album! Love it!
Ricky Lawson playing on it is smoking, what an awesome drummer he was!
Great album. Bully your local record store until they get it in!
Nathan East Music has put up some bait on YouTube, the single (and album-title track) Daft Funk !
He's got me hooked !
I don't care for the processed vocals in the first half, but I dig the second set of processed vox, then it goes back to the cheesy vocals again. The chorus would've sounded better with just straight up vocals, IMO.
But I'm still hooked! Need to hear the rest of it.
There's also a Mix, by Nathan East Music on youtube that starts with the "Daft Funk" track and then other clips of the making of, contemporaries' commentary and some of his history. Highly recommended. I liked Nathan East before, but I wouldn't say I was a fan. This has changed that.
Fantastic album. 'Daft Funk' is simple and brilliant - drawing influence from Daft Punk who, more than likely, drew influence from Nathan. Just awesome!
The credits are insane:
Daft Funk sounds a lot more like Off The Wall-era MJ to me
I got this off of itunes and there's some cool tracks on it for sure. Unfortunately, a lot of it was just kind of cheesy to me. This was especially the case in "America The Beautiful"...I couldn't believe that he was going for the whole quivering-strings-and-opulent-choir schtick. I thought what next, are fireworks going to start shooting out of my ipod?
Highway 101, SeveNate, and especially Daft Funk were great, though.
Wow, really? The track is beautiful in my opinion...!
And yes that's the next feature of the upcoming iPod.
Too easy listening...smooth'jazz' for me (I really dislike that kind of thing!!)but good at being what it is trying to be(what I assume it is trying...).
I love Nathan East's work in general, but this album did not particularly wow me. It's fine, certainly not terrible or anything, just not as good as I expected.
