About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: July 30, 2014
  • Artist / Band: Turkuaz
  • Hosting Show: Hip City
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

It's often said there is safety in numbers, but there may be greatness too! With a sound as big as the band, Turkuaz excels in that unique combination of rhythm, blues, soul and jazz affectionately called funk.

The group formed as founders Dave Brandwein and Taylor Shell gathered a group of musicians from Boston's Berklee College of Music together to play what sometimes sounds like Sly and the Family Stone, or the live power of Mad Dogs and Englishmen, but with the updated attitude of later-era Talking Heads.

The group sounds great in this Live at KDHX session, playing a variety of songs, from new releases to covers. The performance kicks off with "Bubba Slide," from their 2014 release, "Future 86." Then the group covers the aforementioned Sly Stone's "M'Lady," making the song an homage to the sound they have made their own. The closer, "Chatte Lunatique," is pulled from the first album, "Zerbert."

It's a sound that defies stoicism; it's a sound that is a party in itself. So dig out those boogie shoes and shake it, just don't break it.
