I've been exposed to some new (to me) music lately. Based on recommendations I read here (thanks Woodchuck, JimK and Brad Johnson!!) I picked up a Mandrill greatest hits cd. Wow! That's some serious funk, dirty, nasty, ass kicking funk! I don't know why they seem to have been forgotten about, it's too bad. Incredible music, I absolutely love it. It messed up my whole day the first time I listened. But in a good way. Anyone with ears should check them out. Anyone know what any of them are doing now? mostly unrelated: Last night I saw a band called Havana Casino play on BET Jazz. They were a latin band (is there a different word for that style? cuban?) and I really enjoyed them. They had some cool instruments, too. Is anyone familiar with them? I'd like to hear more, and I'd like to check out other similar stuff. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm not familiar at all with that type of music.
