|Studied Rudeness - Review in
Best of New Orleans
The 007 debut CD, Studied Rudeness, is full of great songs and rock-steady beats. They model their music on the Studio One and Treasure Island recordings from Jamaica in the early 1960s and perform versions of the classic "Ba Ba Boom" and "The Tide Is High." They have great versatility in sporting three singers with distinctive voices. ...
|Live at the Circle Bar
- Review in Live New Orleans
Watching 007's relaxed delivery was like watching four drunk friends jerk around on instruments. Except better. In the end, 007 is comprised of four talented musicians that like to play Jamaican music. Each member has more important main gigs. The Circle Bar was the rare place to hear normal Jazzman Freilich play great Rock guitar solos. Clemens made sure to mention if 007 covered a Peter Tosh or Toots and the Maytals song. This was a respectful move. 007 was fun to watch and listen to.
