Cassandra Wilson, Donald Fagen, Mike Stern, Mint Condition: Jazz and Popular Modern Mix
The industry blocks, confines and boxes up what it wants, but true artists defy that continually. Who are today's contemporary and relevant singular voice(s). Bill and Rahn explore Cassandra Wilson, who is heard here reinterpreting popular tunes, folksy American standards, re- making of " folk traditions", and mixes up vocal music or instrumental music that is "vocal". Blending elements of instrumental virtuosity, Miles' next and latest " new voice", was Mike Stern, the electrified jazz Hendrix of modern progressive guitar jazz,... Donald Fagen, song writer, Steely Dan veteran, looking at song forms...Stokley Williams of Mint Condition as vocalist and drummer...and ending with bassist, Darryl Hodge. Producer Rahn Dorsey and Bill continue to deal with their examination of defining the Modern Music Progressive, asking what's the current context for 21st century modern artistry.
