“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.

Global Noize is a hip and eclectic musical journey that blasts away all boundaries-an organic, free-spirited sonic brew of some of the best elements of jazz, funk, electronica and world fusion. This glorious amalgamation is truly music without borders. The Jazz Club has never heard anything like this.

Cooking up this wild concoction are keyboardist extraordinaire and veteran of Miles Davis’ and Luther Vandross’ bands Jason Miles and turntable guru DJ Logic, who has collaborated with such diverse artists as Phish and Vernon Reid. In addition, the group now has Indian vocal diva Falu as a full-time member.

In 2011, Global Noize will have a new album release. It’s called A Prayer For The Planet. It reflects the feeling the group has on the state of our planet in the 21st century. It features some of the great cutting edge artists of our time and further explores the Global Groove that was created on the first Global Noize album. From Falu’s sensuous vocals on the title track and her amazing control of her voice on “Charismalove” and “Wanna B With You” to the fantastic performances of Karl Denson, Jeff Coffin, Oz Noy, Mocean Worker, Mailka Zarra, Lica Cecata and others, this is a true album for the 21st century. Jason Miles and DJ Logic have crafted a truly imaginative and compelling album without sacrificing the groove, melody and innovation that was brought to the first Global Noize CD. It is accompanied by an amazing image – (see poster in the Photos section).

Global Noize takes listeners on an imaginative, free-wheeling journey into musical exploration. Enjoy the ride.
