, by Joey Carillo, Lone Bannana Productions. Since I'm from an ex-Communist country (Hungary), I find it very amusing to see how similar the style of stupid American propaganda is to the stupid Communist one. This is one of the few songs I did with this type of narration on it. I'm planning on sharing others soon. Even funnier ones!
Enjoy!All About Jazz reviews Rhodes Trip
Born in Szolnok, Hungary, Tomisheep is a Montreal-based classically trained pianist/keyboardist, composer, arranger and sound designer. He works predominantly in the areas of studio and commercial music, in addition to a variety of popular, rock, hip hop and classical music projects.
He is a graduate of the Bartok Béla Zeneiskola (Béla Bartok Music Academy) in Hungary. Tomisheep arrived in Montreal in 2005, and has since been the in-house musical director at Air M.S. Media. Rhodes Trip was inspired by Tomisheep's purchase of a vintage Fender Rhodes piano, an instrument whose historical and recognizable sound can be heard on legendary recordings such as The Beatles
' Let It Be," on Stevie Wonder
's You Are The Sunshine of My Life," and on recordings by legendary jazz musicians Miles Davis
, Duke Ellington
, Joe Zawinul
and Herbie Hancock
Tomisheep's personal Rhodes trip started at improvised music sessions with a group of some of Montreal's best known instrumentalists. Tomisheep says: After scoring the music for 26 episodes of a TV series, I needed to get away from the computer and back to the basics of free form improvising and recording with great musicians. I dug out my trusted Fender Rhodes, and contacted my friend Alex Bellegarde, a great double-bassist and improviser.
There were moments in these recorded jams that were too cool to delete. A few more friends added overdubs to the original tracks; Rhodes Trip is the result of these sessions." Rhodes Trip features Tomisheep on Rhodes piano; Namori Cisse and Alain Mercure on drums; Alex Bellegarde on electric contrabass; with guest appearances by Daniel Paul Bourdages on flute, Philippe Dalphe on saxophone, Eduardo Sanchez on trumpet, Richard Lemoine on guitar, Kiko Osorio on percussion; and turntablists DJ 7D & DJ Pocket.
