seeing him at industry got me into producing music. he did a live show that for whatever reason made me think..... thats what i wanna do. the guy is pretty amazing. but not dancefloor lets do E amazing... more like modern funk amazing.

years later i dj'd with him at a party in buffalo and gave him a copy of a record I'd pressed. i was abit manic meeting him in the loud confines of a dj booth. i'm convinced he thought i was nutts! oh and 2o mins into his set the power went out in the party..... it was so unfair....

I heard he did this music thing with instruments, and machines. He played for Bev & Willy @ Ritual 4 and tore up industry with his "Vampire of the Night" bit.

Aside from the regular dance floor bits he's done, "Land Cruising" & the Innerzone Orchestra album are hype ass.

"hi, it's me. i know you're probably asleep, but I wanted to say 'hi' "HIIIIIIII"...

eheheheheee...

anyway. i digress.

6 9

that's what its all about baby.

them records ain't cheap either, 4 Jazz Funk Classics (an ass kicking record) even repressed still goes for $20 US... DAMN!

CC is all over the map, personally I like his techno the best, the rest of the stuff he does is hit and miss with me.

i think that gig was influential for a lot of us.
kind of seemed like the industry crowd was a bit confused by him and moodymann though.

i remember his DJ set got cut very short, and he wasn't happy about it.

The Industry gig a few years back was quite disappointing for me mainly because his set was very short and he hardly played any of his better stuff..I remember talking a lot of shit on the mic too

I believe he was billed as "Carl Craig live" for that one but he has also performed as "Paperclip People live" "Interzone Orchestra live" and most recently I saw him perform as "Tres Demented live"

I must say his "69" stuff is prob his best and his "Landcrusing" album is very underrated because of the automobile/driving theme and lack of dancefloor tracks

Do you know if he is going to be djing or playing live?

fingers crossed that he is playing live.

So will this night be more of a house night?

I saw him play with a band a few years ago i cant think of the name, it was really jazzy stuff, i loved it. He is such a good artist up there with Herbert.

you need to book HERBERT Sarah !

and have me play :D

The Detroit Experiment?

Like the Philadelphia Experiment before it, the Detroit Experiment featured the involvement of several musicians from the city it was named after. After all was recorded and pressed, its range of artists proved to be more diverse than that of The Philadelphia Experiment, boasting names from the fields of jazz, rap, and techno_Over the course of five days, techno pioneer Carl Craig (Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra) and producer/percussionist Karriem Riggins (Slum Village, Common) recorded a crew that numbered well over a dozen. Trumpet player Marcus Belgrave (Ray Charles, Charles Mingus, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra) was one of the key participants, who helped bring along pianist Geri Allen and violinist Regina Carter. Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock veteran Bennie Maupin brought his clarinet and saxophone. Saxophonist/flautist Alan Barnes (the Blackbyrds), guitarist Perry Hughes (Earl Klugh), drummer Ron Otis (Klugh, Aretha Franklin), bassist Jaribu Shahid (Roscoe Mitchell, James Carter), bassist Al Turner (Klugh, Franklin, Nancy Wilson), and keyboardist Amp Fiddler (Parliament, Prince, Moodymann) each brought their extensive experience in the jazz , R&B, and funk worlds. Rappers Athletic Mic League and Invincible also came aboard.
