Utilizing the spirit of music's past as a guiding force, My Black Arts draws inspiration from deep inside The Cutting Room’s legendary New York walls. For this eclectic fourteen track LP, Charles Compo and his longtime collaborators Jerry Brooks (bass), and Camille Gainer (drums), were once again able to conjure up the raw chemistry found on last year’s self-titled debut effort. Blasting through fifty minutes of captivating music, the trio are joined by various friends including notable guitarists Eric Krasno (Soulive, Lettuce) and Vernon Reid (Living Color). The Highlights on the album includes The Dream Logic’s electrifying revamp of the War classic Cisco Kid, and the crisply penned, played and produced single Drunken Monkey.
