The Budos Band
The story of the Budos Band starts innocently enough; a core of like minded high school Jazz musicians that came together with a common love for Funk and Afrobeat. But where many bands fizzle away under the malleable world of popular music, the Budos have taken that same chaotic energy and released two solid efforts towards greatness. "We don't want to change anything, we try to keep things real simple with whatever we do whether it be the title of our records or the album art work or writing songs together," says Jared (Baritone Sax). This mentality isn't held in jest. The entire Budos band seems to share this idea of quality over quantity.
When not trotting around the globe rocking turntables or remixing everyone and their moms, Jon stays busy fortifying his new label, Jon Kennedy Federation. Its inaugural release, Jon's own Demons EP, is not only another wonderful beat journey from a largely unsung music veteran, but a harbinger of many a funky thing to come on JKF.
Stevie Wonder: Where I'm Coming From
In the 60s, Motown and more specifically Berry Gordy, were sticklers for 'quality control.' The label held weekly meetings where only the most pop radio-friendly recordings made it to the pressing plant. Both Marvin Gaye and Stevie were staunch opponents of Motown's factory-like operation, as well as Gordy's stranglehold on his artist's creative urges. In both artists' cases, their most popular singles were at first held back under the guise of 'quality control,' Marvin's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and Stevie's "My Cherie Amour." While Marvin pressed on with Motown throughout the 70s, Stevie had bigger plans for his music.
