The Wood Brothers/The Claudettes (Episode #1811H)

KQED Life: Sat, Aug 6, 2016 -- 8:00 PM

The Wood Brothers began as something of a side project between Chris Wood (Medeski Martin & Wood) and brother Oliver (Tinsley Ellis and King Johnson) in 2006. Adapting the blues, folk and other roots-music sounds they loved as kids into their own evocative sound and twining their voices in the sort of high-lonesome harmony blend for which sibling singers are often renowned, it's become quite clear that The Wood Brothers have indeed become the main act. With the addition of drummer Jano Rix, the band have become a stalwart on the Americana scene and "Masters of Soulful Funk" (Paste Magazine). Paradise is the band's fifth album and it's their most sophisticated and rocking work to date. The Claudettes create their own fanatical fusion of blues and soul-jazz-like Ray Charles on a punk kick. Think The White Stripes and Black Keys brandish with a piano instead and fronted by Nigerian-American singer/dancer Yana who sings in French. File under: post-burlesque? Neo-vaudeville? Cosmic cartoon music? You've never seen a band quite like this.
