Brooklyn. Funk. Essentials. In absolute terms, it wouldn’t really be necessary to add anything else. Except that ... it’s too simple, of course. Because if funk is really the issue here, it’s a mishmash that the New York gang favors, where soul, hip hop, spoken word and jazz all intertwine. In any case, this was the roadmap set a little over 25 years ago by producer Arthur Baker and musical director Lati Kronlund when they formed the band. And since the latter is still at the helm, we don’t see why they should change course, except to incorporate here and there some stylistic deviations as was the case in 1996 with Turkish music. With a new album under their summer belt, aptly titled Stay Good and which says so much - and yet so little - about their intentions, our Essentials pursue what they do best and which systematically arouses their enthusiasm: performing live! It makes sense when it’s been your daily routine since the party days in the New York clubs of yore, or when you’ve shared the stage with the likes of James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic, The Fugees, The Meters or Erykah Badu. Making our bodies and hearts dance, the sextet wouldn’t see things any other way. No need to look further or longer for the best nonstop flight between New York and Monte Carlo. You don’t even need to fasten your seat belt, quite the contrary...
