Narada Michael Walden - Ecstasy Dance "The Best of"

Preconceito, discriminação, purismo, racismo, radicalismo; e tantos outros "ismos" que poderiam ser acrescentados aqui por um simples post e sabem porque?

Porque assim somos nós seres humanos, e como diz a letra "narciso acha feio aquilo que não é espelho".
Mas agora este lobo endoidou de vez!!!!!
Não, é que desde que uma das vertentes musicais cresceu na mídia e dizem depois morreu isso me incomoda e muito e este post tem tudo a ver com isso e se vc ainda não sabe o assunto, chamava-se "Disco Music".

Disseram que esta vertente da musica soul norte americana veio pra acabar com a qualidade sonora e achincalhar artistas, lançando cantores de playback e músicos fajutos, mas se esqueceram que ela nunca foi inventada como disco music e sim já existia como soul music e nada mais era que a soul ao alcance de todos.

Já está na praça um box set com a era de ouro de um dos maiores programas de tv do mundo que só se chama "Soul Train" e aqueles detratores do ritmo e quetais poderiam aprender um pouco só antes de criticar e verão ali músicos do naipe de O'Jays, Temptations, Isley Bros, Blue Magic e uma infinidade de outros talentos e Narada comprova isso nesse disco onde fiz questão de relacionar todos os músicos participantes, afim de que se veja que nem caça niqueis foi prq não é sucesso de vendas e nunca foi, mas só prova que a soul music tem sim adeptos do naipe de Jeff Beck ,Santana, Airto Moreira e os Brecker Bros.

Narada Michael Walden nada mais é que um talentosissímo compositor, arranjador e mestre em lançar sucessos da musica negra que muitos desconheciam mas que até hoje são tocados nos bairros negros dos states que tantos babam e bajulam, e os mesmos negros ainda os ouvem como ouviam seus antecessores ao Soul Train e mestres do Blues as tocam e sua musicalidade que infelizmente a mídia e as majors arrebentaram classificando de discotheque aquilo que já era Soul Music e continua a ser.

Aqui vc encontra sim ritmos dos anos 80, dançantes e alegres como é a Soul Music, mas tb encontra arranjos fantásticos e talvez pra quem queira se embrenhar um pouco mais, encontrará nomes que valem a pena se conhecer, inclusive do próprio Narada que hj tem uma Fundação com um trabalho maravilhoso e sempre com músicos de altíssimo gabarito ao seu lado.

Sempre quis falar sobre este assunto.Narada Michael Walden (born Michael Walden on April 23, 1952 in Kalamazoo, Michigan) is an American producer, drummer, singer, and songwriter.

He was given the name Narada by guru Sri Chinmoy in the early 1970s and his musical career spans three decades, in which he was awarded several gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards. Walden has also owned and operated Tarpan Studios, a well-known recording studio in San Rafael, California, since the mid-1980s.

His stage career included appearances with John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra (where he replaced legendary drummer Billy Cobham), and Jeff Beck (on Beck's album Wired).
His first album, Garden of Love Light, was released in 1976 and included the track "Delightful". The lone single released from the album, it charted at #81 on the R&B charts in the spring of 1977.
His 1979 album Awakening peaked at #15 on the R&B charts, spawning a Top 10 hit with "I Don't Want Nobody Else (To Dance With You )".

Later that year, his album The Dance of Life yielded the Top 5 single "I Shoulda Loved Ya", which also made the UK Top 10 in 1980.
"Gimme Gimme Gimme", his 1985 duet with Patti Austin, reached #1 in Sweden.
In 1988, he scored another UK top 10 hit and a #1 US Dance hit, with "Divine Emotions" under the name Narada.

There's no denying Narada Michael Walden's drumming chops, but he's also a very talented hitmaker as well. Since the '70s, he's scored several R&B hits as a solo artist, and is a top session musician to this day.
He's played with the best (Jeff Beck, Kenny G., Mariah Carey, and Aretha Franklin) and has dabbled in just about every musical form -- dance, rock, fusion, soul, etc.

Rhino has compiled the best of Walden's solo work, entitled Ecstasy's Dance: The Best of Narada Michael Walden, which showcases his many talents.
Highlights include his two Top Ten R&B hits, "I Don't Want Nobody Else (To Dance With You)" and "I Shoulda Loved Ya," as well as the outstanding album tracks "Delightful" and "The Awakening."

Other minor hits are also represented, such as "The Real Thang," "Divine Emotions," and a discofied version of the Holland/Dozier/Holland classic "Reach Out." Also included are nicely assembled and informative liner notes, as well as a message from Walden himself. ~ Greg Prato
