Funky coincidence

Was it something I said? I just got word from Ubiquity Records that Breakestra will be playing 4 shows in Australia supporting James Brown. I was a little dismissive of Breakestra in my earlier post, but I hope some sort of onstage collaboration happens; Breakestra has the chops and JB still knows how to guide a band. Perhaps JB could borrow their Hammond organ if he felt like taking a break from his DX7 that night. It's my not-so-secret hope that JB records at Daptone, or with Breakestra or, since he's in Australia, the Bamboos. In the right setting, he may still have a great comeback album (maybe his 8th? I've lost count) left in him.

And on a sad note: Ray Barretto, RIP.
