Overview

Even an avid R&B fan may not be familiar with go-go music of the 1970s. The unique polyrhythmic style blended horns, bass, and keyboard and eventually became the forerunner to '80s groups like EU and Trouble Funk as well as the Miami bass music of the '80s and '90s. While his unique sound has lived on, Chuck Brown, one of the genre's originators, has had relatively little commercial success, except for his 1978 hit "Bustin' Loose." Recorded in January 2001 in front of a lively hometown crowd in Washington, D.C., Your Game: Live at the 9:30 Club is an attempt to shed some light on Brown's influential work. Brown brings his fans plenty of funk in "Wind Me Up Chuck/Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Walk to the Witches Castle." He also brings his unique take on '70s classics such as Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon" and the Stylistics' "People Make the World Go Round." While Your Game: Live at the 9:30 Club is unlikely to make Brown a household name, it is an excellent introduction to the genre of go-go music.
