Blue Note Dubs




The Drastics play McCoy Tyner's Search For Peace

Good evening all you bonzai buckaroos out there on the vast parched mesa that is the world wide web. Just here to give a little update. Though there was no notification, we did make our First Tuesday New Music deadline and uploaded a brand new instrumental to the ol’ myspace listenin’ box! We took McCoy Tyner’s ballad "Search For Peace" and put the rocksteady treatment on it.

Originally recorded on Tyner’s "The Real McCoy" in 1967, the track featured legends Joe Henderson, Ron Carter and Elvin Jones. The album was his first release on Blue Note Records as well as the first record appearing as a leader after leaving John Coltrane’s group. Basically, it’s an amazing disc. This our little homage to it’s greatness featuring Andrew Zelm on trombone.

You’ll also notice we added some tracks to our lil’ ol’ mp3 player up top. Moved some songs from the myspace player there and added a couple new ones … so press play already!!!


Live Dub
We also got some cool shows palindromey shows coming up in Chicago on 1.13 and 3.11.  First off; next Wednesday we’re doing 2 sets as part of the Q4 Wednesday Music Party and then March we’ll be throwing down at new-ish Chicago spot; The Whistler (which I’m pretty sure will be their inaugural reggae event). We’re also planning a week out to the East Coast in April so keep your eyes on the big board!
