When Jan Gaye, Marvin’s widow, heard Tinkr Barfield’s gritty, rockin’ gospel-jazz rendition of one of the Motown legend’s classics, she said, “Job well done, Tinkr Barfield.” Pop, funk and urban jazz fans everywhere will heap that kind of praise for the whole set list that Luther Vandross’ former bassist puts together on BLENDED, the eminently funky, richly eclectic debut from Tinkr’s Classy, Greasy, Jazzy, Funky, Ole Azz Booga Band. Working Quincy Jones-style with a massive all-star cast of studio and touring musicians and singers, Tinkr embodies all those adjectives and more (symphonic, brassy, electronica-based, etc.) on a mix of vibrant, rhythmically diverse originals and sly re-imaginings of classics by Dave Brubeck, The Beatles and Rogers & Hammerstein. True to its title, BLENDED’s got something for everyone’s classy, greasy, jazzy, funky, ole azz booga musical fantasies.
