I have often dreamed of creating educational resources for church musicians to learn how to play in gospel, funk, jazz, R&B, or Latin styles. I was not aware that resources like this already exist. I stumbled on this website this week. These musicians are really impressive, and after watching some of the demos, I even began to get a little discontent with not having brilliant musicians like this to play with (no offence NCF folks; they are just that good!) The DVD’s are a little too expensive for me to justify purchasing them for our church. Besides, they are also a little too advanced to be of much use for the average volunteer musicians. But maybe some of you out there would like to commit to taking your playing to another level and would benefit from dropping $30 to have one of these DVD’s at home.
Also, check out the samples of Phil Lassiter’s CD’s which are available on the website as well. As Kool and the Gang so eloquently put it, “Can’t get enough of that funky stuff.”
