GlobalNoize

“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.
