Album Notes
Best known as the bassist in the Grammy Award-winning hard rock band Living Colour, Doug Wimbish staked his first musical claim as a member
of the original Sugar Hill Records house band ... With guitarist Skip
McDonald and drummer Keith Leblanc, he wrote and played on many of the
original hip-hop anthems, including “The Message,” “White Lines,” and
“That’s the Joint.” Soon after, he moved to London, and with McDonald,
Leblanc and British producer Adrian Sherwood, formed a legendary
industrial funk band called TACK>>HEAD. With the release of two TACK>>HEAD albums, \"Friendly as a Hand Grenade\" and \"Strange Things,\" Doug became more recognized, and his career accelerated wildly. He earned the reputation as “The Journeyman Bassist,” sought after and collaborating on records and tours with dozens of well-known artists, including The Rolling Stones, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Herb Alpert, B.B. King, Annie Lennox, Carly Simon, Madonna, Seal, Joe Satriani, Afrika Bambattaa, James Brown, George Clinton, Tarja Turunen, and Mos Def.
CinemaSonics is, as expected, filled with Doug’s virtuosity, electronics and signature ambient sound, but it also showcases his often over-looked melodic, lyrical and compositional skills. From horn-rich “James Bond” orchestration, to 1970s “Superfly” funk, urban “Beat Street” vibes, and darker “Miami Vice” moods, CinemaSonics is a comprehensive and stylish musical document ... A record that serves as a soundtrack for Doug’s rich and eclectic musical life.

40mph DaN

Solid Play Through
An excellent record to hit play and sit back and enjoy the ride. Track sequence is superb as it rides aggressive in the beginning and transitions into mellower material and then swings back. \"Homeless\" is an outstanding version a Curtis Mayfield song featuring Bernard Fowler vocals. Fowler is the predominate vocalist on the album; a smart choice, don\'t sleep on his solo record \"Friends With Privileges\".

Other highlights: Another version of \"Trance\", a new version of a 1994 Tackhead tune \"Danger\" released under Strange Parcels moniker, a different take on \"Rockin\' Shoes\" that appears on Skip McDonald\'s Little Axe latest release. Plus, two excellent jazz nuanced dancehall reggae tunes with Adrian Sherwood \"Special Request\" and \"No Release, No Surrender\".

No filler, all killer here: If you are familiar with Wimbish\'s work and the ON-U Sound canon of players and records you know how they defy categorization. If you aren\'t familiar, what an fantastic place to start.
