|Big Sam's Funky Nation|
Peace, Love & Understanding provides an ear-full of some of the funkiest sounds coming out of the Crescent City. BSFN adeptly maneuvers through this musical terrain with the soulful skill that has been the trademark of this emerging ensemble. The twelve song effort reflects BSFN at its best with songs that evoke the steamy good time feeling of New Orleans. The leader of the band, Big Sam Williams, believes this work embodies the evolution of the band and its style. Big Sam notes – this album reflects our optimism and sheer love for New Orleans as well as our positive outlook on the future of full-blown funk.
One thing that is immediately noticeable after just one listen is this CD is all about a party... Big Sam's live performances have become legendary funk fests with a deep NOLA groove, and with this CD BSFN delivers a studio rendition just as inspirational. BSFN will be performing songs from Peace, Love & Understanding at their upcoming record release party at Sullivan Hall in New York City on April 4!
