THAT’S STILL MAMA, PRIMO SINGOLO TRATTO DA LANDING ON A HUNDRED, IN ROTAZIONE SU TUTTI I NETWORK RADIOFONICI, IN FREE DOWNLOAD: http://soundcloud.com/cody-chesnutt-1/thats-still-mama
Heralded by a full blown tower of 60’s/ 70’s soul in the Curtis/ Marvin tradition, That’s Still Mama (available for FREE download <http://soundcloud.com/cody-chesnutt-1/thats-still-mama> now), Landing On A Hundred, Cody’s first full album of new material in a decade follows through One Little Indian on 29th October.
Universally acclaimed for his edgy, sprawling Shortlist Prize nominated 2002 debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, Cody ChesnuTT is a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious songs set the bar for what modern soul music can look and sound like: On every level – rhythm, song, subject matter, spirit – Landing On A Hundred delivers massively, it’s message upbeat even as it reflects upon troubled times. Says Cody “This body of work is extremely meaningful to me – it represents the journey I have been on since I last released an album. Words cannot describe or express how excited I am about this music.”
Following a period of family-man retreat and reflection after his meteoric rise to near stardom via The Roots retooled worldwide hit, The Seed 2.0 <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojC0mg2hJCc> , Landing On A Hundred’s vivid vingnettes sketch out a man’s road to redemption after years of womanizing and crack addiction, and the power and labour of slow-burning marital love that eclipses mere material expressions of affection.
The title is a reference to the slang saying, “Keeping It One Hundred,” or telling the whole truth, and for lovers of true blue Southern soul this new album is a must-have — the rhythm tracks recorded with a ten-piece band in Memphis-based Royal Studios, the sonic birthplace of some of the deepest works by soul and blues luminaries like Al Green, Buddy Guy and Ike & Tina Turner. “The original tracks were cut on two-inch tape,” Cody explains. “My hands were tingling because I got to sing on the actual microphone that Al Green recorded with. Nothing has changed. The down-home acoustic treatments are still in place.”
