As the world’s shift to the digital era becomes more apparent, those who fight for the tangible authenticity of the analog era stand out in a world of computers and technology. Music, film, art, and even the way we communicate with each other, has vastly changed through the invention of electronic devices. While this evolution has born many brilliant creations, artistically and technologically, there is still something so precious about that which is created sans computers.
Playing music together since the age of 13, Colorado-based musicians Jordan Linit and Josh Fairman combined minds to form the shape-shifting funk band, Analog Son. A flavorful fusion of funk, jazz, blues, rock, and hip hop, Analog Son has cooked up a sumptuous buffet of sounds. The project has seen collaborations from a rotating assortment of musicians.
Their debut studio album, Stomp And Shout, featured funky horn lines from Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom from the Shady Horns, members of the Motet, Nigel Hall (Nth Power), Joe Tatton (New Mastersounds), Benzel Baltimore of P-Funk fame, Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Terrence Houston (Funky Meters) plus some of Denver’s finest local talent.
Black Diamond’ the groups 2016 release, was primarily recorded in New Orleans, Louisiana while Linit and Fairman were in town for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Not only does the new record showcase both compositional and improvisational skills, but it features some of the scene’s heaviest hitters including previous collaborators, and Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Co, The Allman Brothers), Alvin Ford Jr. (Dumpstaphunk, Pretty Lights Live), just to name a few.
