Something tasty from Amp Fiddler

Back in the late ’80s/early ’90s, Detroit’s Joseph “Amp” Fiddler played keyboards with the P-Funk All Stars at the start of their jam-band renaissance. Lately, he’s been doing his own hip thing, and developing a following in Europe.

Amp’s new CD came out two weeks ago. It’s called “Afro Strut – US Version.” It’s a reconfiguration of his 2006 U.K. release, “Afro Strut.”

Here’s the video for “Ridin’,” which is hot:

UBM - Were you at the 1994? 4th of July shows in Central Park when they landed the new Mothership? Great shows (I think. I was not, um, in a state to objectively judge the music.) And I believe the last time that George, Bootsy and Bernie all played a full show together.

Hey Eric. I wasn't at the Central Park show.

Fortunately, Bootsy was playing with the Mob for a period in the early '90s, and I did see one of those shows in D.C. Back when the band did more than go through the motions.
