“Sly Reimagined” with Global Noize feat. Jason Miles, Nona Hendryx, Maya Azucena, Falu & Cyro Baptista!
Keyboardist extraordinaire Jason Miles, who has worked with everyone from Miles Davis and Luther Vandross to Ivan Lins and Roberta Flack, created Global Noize as a free-wheeling collective, to create music that takes listeners on a wide-ranging journey. Over the course of several albums, guests have included Me’shell Ndegeocello, Billy Martin (Medeski, Marin & Wood), Vernon Reid (Living Color), John Popper (Blues Traveler), Bernie Worrell (Talking Heads, Parliament-Funkadelic) and Karl Denson.
The acclaimed new album, Sly Reimagined, features Sly & The Family Stone’s material reimagined by Jason Miles, with legendary singers Roberta Flack and Nona Hendryx, as well as Maya Azucena and Falu, and backed by a killer rhythm section that includes original Family Stone drummer Greg Errico, as well as horns and turntables. Concerts have been off the hook, prompting Bob Davis of Soul Patrol to call it, “one of the best concert experiences I have ever had. In fact it was so good I didn’t want it to end.”
Global Noize, which has been described as a hip and eclectic musical journey crossing all boundaries, is an organic, free-spirited sonic brew of some of the best elements of jazz, funk, electronica and world fusion – it’s music without borders. Miles concludes “When I hear music I love I want to be involved with it. It would be boring for me to stay in one place musically so I love to explore different music. I know Miles Davis felt that way and I’m just trying to keep the grooves hot, the melodies great and collaborate with the best artists I know. Hopefully we can bring Global Noize to the world and show people our musical vision.
