Ghost-Note, the innovative percussion-driven funk band rolled into Aisle 5 ATL and drew a huge, energized crowd. The band, led by Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth, each of Snarky Puppy fame, put their imprint on the funk with their original tunes drawn from their first album Fortified and their second, yet to be released album Swagism (2018). The band featured MonoNeon on bass (formerly with Prince), M. Jelani Brooks on sax and local trombonist extraordinaire Daniel Wytanis sitting in on this track below:
Swagism, the new double disc album is sure to please as Sput and Nate have a special chemistry that makes every groove propulsive and is sure to get your booty shaking, It was recorded at Parlor Recording Studios in New Orleans.
The disc is super-stacked with an unbelievable all-start funk/jazz lineup including Justin Stanton, Bobby Sparks and Bob Lanzetti (Snarky Puppy), Kamasi Washington, Karl Denson, Weedie Braimah (The Nth Power), Nigel Hall (Lettuce, Nigel Hall), Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer and more! Give a listen to the finale of the ATL show and then count the days to the release!
