From a previous album dedicated exclusively to Soul music by the Roman producer Nerio Papik Poggi, this new project in the artistic name ‘The Soultrend Orchestra’ was born in 2017. The album title released that year, ’84 King Street’, defined the musical genre to which it is dedicated. In fact, the address is that of the legendary New York club Paradise Garage from where Disco music in the late 70s was definitively launched all over the world by deejays David Mancuso and Larry Levan in the first place. So Soul and Disco are the predominance of this first album which has had great success in the sector so much so that the band has performed live in important European festivals.
This new album entitled Live For Funk starts from where the first left us musically to enter much more on the Funk sound, especially the English one of the early 80s and the American one linked to jazz musicians such as Donald Byrd or Roy Ayers who have been re-evaluated so much in the years starting from the Acid Jazz scene from the 90s onwards.
15 songs in total, including three covers. The three covers are remakes of cult songs from past years in the Disco Funk world – ‘Get Down Saturday Night’ by Oliver Cheatham, ‘Outstanding’ by the Gap Band and ‘Act Like You Know’ by the Fat Larry’s Band.
In the project Nerio Poggi brought with him his historical musicians such as Alfredo Bochicchio on guitar, Peter De Girolamo on keyboards, Massimo Guerra on trumpet, Fabio Tullio on sax, Simone ‘Federicuccio’ Talone on percussion and Luca Trolli on drums. In addition to a dozen other guest musicians also 8 different singers among which the names of Alan Scaffardi, Al Castellana, Kenneth Bailey and Danny Losito of Kaigo stand out.
