ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album has been a labor of love for me - love of the ingenuity of indigenous people - what I call the root of human civilization as I know it. Everyone (human) comes from some place at a given time in history. That "place" is where to find the root of your sound. I have been lucky to find myself in several of such places. The songs on this album represent a brief of these findings. I hope you enjoy playing them over and over, as I do. Peace-Love-Light. Kenn Wanaku.

Dancing feet at the heart of a pounding heart!
I like reggae, blues and rock and roll. This has it all. I hear rhythms that would make Paul Simon dance. It's so easy to just play this album once and get into it. To get it. To understand it. It's super friendly on the ears. The rhythms are such a pleasant relief from the modern middle America radio! It's like eating a complex flavored food when you are just so hungry - chow it down but wait, what was that? Hold on, next bite I must think about that! That was good, different, I must try that again! I must tie my feet down while I listen to this or I will never sleep tonight!

Sweet Songs
I enjoy this album immensely! Well crafted songs; skill from many musicians blended just right. A friend to help drive out the bad vibes and TV ad music that can linger too long.

EVEN THE UNTRAINED EAR...
Zi yv+ meyn ta ma yv+a?
It takes a different and special faculty to be a song writer. That is why most of Michael Jackson’s famous songs (Thriller and others) were written for him by the famous song writer Rod Temperton. It takes more than ordinary talent for song writing, bass guitar, rhythm guitar and lead guitar talents to be fused into one brain.
Even an untrained ear will hear and get to know what good arrangement can do to a song, determine how vocals can be well-leveled with instrumental accompaniment…the bass guitar vibrations will rip through one’s ribcage if played on a Cyber-Twin Amp. The dexterous fingerings of the rhythm guitar strings harmonize, sustain and maintain the melodies. From the background the lead guitar is made to tell the stories in their entireties as it is taken for a ride into and out of the minor and major pentatonic lead guitar scales. The resultant output has ended up whipping up not only the body but the mind and the soul as well.
Wanaku, ayongni a teyn… keep it coming.
