5.0 out of 5 stars The full-frontal-assault funk . . . February 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
. . . playing at a venue near you.

Has there ever been a finer representation of this essential music? I don't think so. One thinks, for example, of Robert Walter, or Skerik's Syncopated septet, or Stanton Moore, or Garage a Trois, and one must conclude that this is the granddaddy of 'em all.

Why?

More res, I'd say. That is, more soul, more heartfelt, irony-free, postmodernless authenticity than anybody else.

It's not that Will Bernard is a naif.

No.

It's just that he doesn't play games where others, no matter how pure their motives, manage to slip into funk self-consciousness and vitiate whatever authentic vibe they've got going.

How does he do it?

I confess, I don't know. Purity of heart? Perhaps. Left Coast ur-freedom audacity? Again, perhaps.

My own view is that it doesn't matter. If a SF band can trump a N'awlins funk endeavor, in these postmodern times, so be it. Who am I to grouse, to point fingers, to wring hands?

Aren't we the land of the free, the home of the brave? Then let's recognize the Big Daddy of Funk and move on from there.

OK?

5.0 out of 5 stars I am wearing my Party Hat February 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
... in celebration of the best Will Bernard contribution to date. All of the elements that I expect when I go to see a live WB show: stellar skills, spontaneous collaboration and playful spirit... just as delivered in 'Directions to my House' and 'Motherbug'... but sUpEr FuNkY!!!!!! Chin up is straight out of a 70's pimp flick!
