Make It Funky!

( 2 )

Overview

It's hard to overestimate the importance of the city of New Orleans in the history of American popular music; New Orleans was where jazz first took root, and the city's rich gumbo of musical influences (African, Caribbean, and French accents mingling with jazz, blues, gospel, and pop structures) helped to steep the creative melting pot that allowed rhythm and blues and rock & roll to grow. There's nothing like the sound of New Orleans jazz, funk, and R&B, and filmmaker Michael Murphy offers living proof ...

Overview

It's hard to overestimate the importance of the city of New Orleans in the history of American popular music; New Orleans was where jazz first took root, and the city's rich gumbo of musical influences (African, Caribbean, and French accents mingling with jazz, blues, gospel, and pop structures) helped to steep the creative melting pot that allowed rhythm and blues and rock & roll to grow. There's nothing like the sound of New Orleans jazz, funk, and R&B, and filmmaker Michael Murphy offers living proof in his documentary Make it Funky!, which examines the Crescent City's vibrant musical history while showing some of the city's greatest musicians on stage. Make it Funky! includes concert performances by Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, Lloyd Price, The Meters, Snooks Eaglin, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, and many more. Bonnie Raitt and Keith Richards also make guest appearances and talk about how the New Orleans sound impacted their own music. Make it Funky! went into release in the fall of 2005, just as Hurricane Katrina was devastating New Orleans, making its portrait of the city all the more poignant.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
What is the sound of New Orleans? Make It Funky! traces the Big Easy's exuberant musical lineage from the early days of jazz and the blues through zydeco, R&B, rock n' roll, and everything else that's ever called the Crescent City home. Featuring archival footage as well as brand-new performances and interviews featuring the players most widely identified with the New Orleans sound -- including the Neville Brothers, Fats Domino, Bonnie Raitt, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair, the Funky Meters, and others -- this is history you can dance to.

    I don't tire of watching this DVD. I can't tell you how many copies I've purchased for myself and gave to newcomers who wanted to learn more about the music of the Crescent City. Thusfar, all have enjoyed the DVD. And, I keep buying a replacement for my personal "local music" library.
