Add to Calendar 11-08-2011 11-08-2011 15 MANDRILL Clearly one of the most important pioneers of World Music and one of Funk and R&B's most progressive bands, MANDRILL is one of the most sampled groups of today. They have been introduced to a whole new generation of younger fans who are appreciating, in live concerts and through Internet access, the power and artistry of this band. You can hear their signature sound on Kanye West's "Two Words" with Mos Def from Kanye's Grammy Award-winning College Dropout album as well as on Brandy's single "Talk About Our Love" featuring and produced by Kanye West from her Grammy-nominated Afrodisiac album. Other samples include Shawty Lo's' "Dey Know", KRS One's "For Example," Black Eyed Peas "Weekends," Floetry's "Have Faith," Wyclef Jean's "You Say Keep It Gangsta," Tweet and Missy Elliot's "We Don't Need No Water," Kindred's "If I," and Nas' "U Gotta Love It." Their most recent project MANDRILL LIVE AT MONTREUX (DVD/CD) includes interviews, behind the scenes footage and a photo gallery, in addition to the 90-minute concert recorded in Switzerland at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Stravinsky Hall. MANDRILL LIVE AT MONTREUX is the very first "live" presentation of the legendary Funk/R&B/Latin/Jazz/Rock band and features a compendium of MANDRILL's greatest hits. The CD captures the raw magic for which MANDRILL is known with 10 electrifying tracks, unmatched in power and versatility, including classics "Fencewalk," "House of Wood," "Peace and Love" and others. Viewers are treated to bonus musical surprises on what is sure to become a collector's item. The concert CD is one of MANDRILL's finest albums. Both the CD and DVD are available on the official website at www.mandrillis.com and in stores worldwide. The DVD is currently featured on BET J's "Club J Concerts" (a division of the Black Entertainment Television Network). On their soon-to-be released, "seventeenth" album, MANDRILL continues to promote positive messages of peace, harmony and social justice. This CD will reflect the full spectrum of MANDRILL, featuring the Wilson Brothers, innovators and composers of "Mango Meat," "Ape Is High," "Git It All," "Rollin' On," et al. It will definitely contain the booty shakin' fun and funk to which fans have grown accustomed. Additional collaborators include the great Gerald Albright and Chuck D of Public Enemy among others. Still touring the U.S. and abroad, the Wilson Brothers remain the driving force behind MANDRILL. The current band is fueled by a new generation of multi-talented musicians including Marc Rey, Keith Barry, Michael Beholden, Gemi Taylor, Stacey Lamont Sydnor and Eli Brueggemann. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=89630 B.B.
