4.0 out of 5 stars Super relaxed funk 5 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is wonderful, laid back funk. Think Seventies funk and George Clinton, but with an added dash of a relaxed vibe and a modern soul twist. Amp Fiddler is one of the best funksters out there, and this is probably even better than his other excellent album 'Waltz of a Ghetto Fly'. He manages to be fully funky while also being quite relaxing, and no one else achieves that as well as Amp does. He deserves to be a lot better known than he is. If you like a funky vibe, you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic follow up album 7 Sep 2006
By Gaffer
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, the first album was good enough to make me wonder how he could top it. Well he has!

For those who don't know, Amp Fiddler is at the forefront of modern neo-soul, in the same vain as Maxwell and D'Angelo etc.

He started out as a keyboardist from Detroit, and has become a funk and soul musician who has worked with Enchantment, the Dramatics, George Clinton, Moodyman, Jamiroquai, Fishbone, Maxwell, Prince, the Brand New Heavies, Ramsey Lewis, P-Funk All-Stars, Primal Scream, Was (Not Was) and Too Short to name but a few.

Working with such infuential artists has showed through on this album, whether it be becoming a multi instrumentalist talent, joining George Clinton's Funkadelic, or developing a 'base' for others to collaborate and create. The first album was more of a vibe, a full stop on a long period of his life to that point and a drawing together of unfinished songs and feelings from his youth. 'Afro Strut' seems like more of a fresh start that sees him able to look further forward as well as back to his roots.

It leaves the album feeling more "mature" than the mean feat.

He has worked with a whole new set of collaborators for this effort. The first track 'Faith' sets the standard with Amp joined by Raphael Saadiq on a timelessly deep ode to spirituality of a different kind. The UK's Justin Crawford (one half of Manchester-based dj/production outfit Unabombers) is brought in for two of the standout disco-flecked cuts 'Right Where You Are' and 'Ridin'. Amp's Jazz heritage rolls to the fore on the uplifting 'If I Don't', recalling his days in doo-wop outfit The Enchantments as a teenager and laying open the musical make up of its creator.

By referencing so many different styles, it's ensured that this album is unique in it's raw funk style and is NOT TO BE MISSED.

A big thumbs up then!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Prince of the organic vibe is back, strong !! 19 Sep 2006
By vinylcrook - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Amps second album is actually stronger than his debut (great as it is) the tracks laid here are for the serious organic soul fan "Faith" is a great funky foot stomper with a dirty low B-line. "Right where you are" and the strange but superb sounding "if i don't" are all dancerfloor grooves. The awesome track titled "hustle" has a very Curtis sounding string ladened back drop, But if you like your ballads there is one here for you titled "Heaven" ft Stephanie McKay on vocals plus guitarist bluey (incognito front man) whose laced the track just wonderful throughout, and there harmonies blend just perfectly together & i feel in a short period of time it could be one of my favorite tracks on the album. Many people don't really appreciate the impact this man has had and continues to have on todays music scene, for instance Jaydee learned his trade from Amp Fiddler, this guy executes that earthy sound to damn perfection, there ain't no stand out tracks so to speak bcuz it just runs effortlessly throughout the LP, but if you like the following arists Dwele, V, Eric Roberson, peven everett, omar etc.. you will love this album, so one word to you guy's .......... purchase !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A retro rare-groover? 21 Nov 2007
By gizgoogmai - Published on
Format:Audio CD
For over a decade, Brit-rock has proclaimed its green credentials by recycling at least 50% of its material and repackaging it as if it were completely original.
By contrast, contemporary Afro-American music's sample culture fetishises reconditioned old licks and beats, while offering much more genuine novelty.
Joseph "Amp" Fiddler is the exception who proves the rule.
A Detroit veteran of George Clinton's p-funk unit, his second solo album, but for a cod-ragga toast on "I Need You", could well have teleported in from the mid-1970s.
Referencing Gil Scott-Heron in the jazz-funk meditation "Right Where You Are", August Darnell in the zoot-suited "If I Don't", Marvin Gaye in "Hustle", Sly Stone in the bone-dry click-track drums, p-funk in the rubber bass and synths, and Shuggie Otis in the spare, stoned melodiousness, Amp also boasts a fine, smoky singing voice and a way-cool pimp hat.
If Jamiroquai could concoct a hit career out of a lot less, why not this retro rare-groover?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal 23 Jan 2008
By Keith R. Jackson - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best R&B albums I have heard in literally maybe ten years. It has everything. Dirty funk, smooth R&B, dance R&B ala Luther...

Great production, great musicianship. Great keyboard playing. Lyrics for adults. This album (and this artist) is one of those missing links that people just don't about.

It is guys like him who are actually passing along the music at a real, in the studio, level to the younger R&B cats in the the industry.
