Grunge Rock Recording Artist Pays Tribute to Jazz Legends on MLK Day

The Recording Artist behind melodic DIRT, Joe, pays tribute to the Jazz Legends that helped shape the sound of this new Grunge Rock Gothic Jazz Surf Metal Pop Music on MLK Day.

On Martin Luther King Day weekend, the Grunge Rock Recording Artist behind the music of Melodic Dirt pays tribute to the Jazz Legends that helped shape the sound of this new Grunge Rock Gothic Jazz Surf Metal Pop Music.


Joe explains the motivation behind the tribute when he said in an interview:


“I wanted to share all of this with you because I thought it was important to provide some insight into the music of melodic DIRT on a day where I think we should all pay tribute and recognize the positive influence that some individuals in the black community have had on our lives. In these crazy times these days I think it’s important to focus on the positive and not get too caught up in the negative with regards to some rotten apples that exist within our society. They exist among every race.”


He goes on to say:


“For me, MLK Day brings me back to all the positive, productive and inspirational moments in my life that were the result of influential black people.  And their lives are undoubtedly affected by the influence of MLK.”


In the tribute video posted at http://melodicdirt.com/joe-pays-tribute-jazz-legends-mlk-day/ Joe says the following:


“Hey my name is Joe and I’m the recording artist behind melodic DIRT. It’s January 2015 and this was the year that the music of melodic DIRT was released… and it’s actually January 17th, MLK Day weekend and I just wanted to take this time to pay tribute to the Jazz Legends that have helped influence and shape the sound of melodic DIRT to some degree. I do categorize it as grunge rock with a gothic jazz surf metal twist and part of that jazz element, is people like, you know the influence of Jackie Mclean, Archie Shepp, Yusef Lateef, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk just to mention a few… Max Roach, Bud Powell, Clifford Brown, Eric Dolphy, Charles Mingus, the list goes on… I’ve spent a few years studying jazz music as drummer actually, emulating jazz drummers like Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Art Taylor and so I just wanted to take a couple seconds here to pay tribute. So there you have it… peace out.”
