By TOM D'ANTONI // Rhythm on Life Vol. 1 is full of Portland Soul/Funk stars. Hear how Hendrix got there.
Well the Blues Festival is over and it’s time to get back to the normal cycle of OMN Coffeeshop Conversations right here in World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan in Portland.
With me in the place is drummer Tyrone Hendrix and if you have heard funky music around here, you most likely have heard him…with Liv Warfield, Doo-Doo Funk, Farnell Newton, you name it and he has provided the means for you to shake everything you got.
He has a new album called Rhythm On Life Vol 1. It just came out and since he calls it Vol. 1 he must have Vol 2 already in mind.
The cream of Portland soul and funk are on it: Jarod Lawson, Tony Ozier, Farnell, Saeeda Wright, Nafisaria Scroggins-Thomas..i could do on and on.
Instead, let’s hear from Tyrone Hendrix
Here is the song "Change" by Saeeda Wright...we talked about that.
