  • The Roots Bring D’Angelo, John Mayer, Common, Dave Chappelle, and Rahzel To Roots Picnic [Review/Videos]

    first_imgYesterday, the New York City-based Roots Picnic kicked off in Bryant Park. Typically held in their home town of Philadelphia in early June, this marks the first time the event has been held in New York, giving The Roots and their various musical friends an opportunity to showcase their diverse skills in their adopted home town. The first day of the two-day festival featured a diverse lineup, with a set by comedian and Chappelle’s Show co-writer Neal Brennan, DJ sets by The Roots’ versatile drummer Questlove and radio icons Stretch & Bobbito, and a fun performance from pop upstarts X Ambassadors. However, it was the show’s final set of the evening that really made an impact, as The Roots would bring out a bevy of special guests over two-and-a-half hours to create a unique and awesome showcase of hip hop, funk, soul, pop, and r&b.The Roots kicked things off with a series of deep-cuts, including a performance of the jazzy Things Fall Apart track “Dynamite!”, giving Black Thought an early opportunity to show off his impressive skills on the mic. The band then started off “Proceed”, the lead single from their debut record Do You Want More, before following that up with breakthrough hit “Act Two (Love of My Life)”, which featured a guest spot by Common, who rapped his verse from the record with an undeniable energy. Common then stuck around to perform a mini set, performing “Go” and “The Food” from his 2005 album Be, before performing a topical and political freestyle that truly connected with the audience.Common left the stage, and the Roots returned for another Things Fall Apart classic in “The Next Movement”, which featured a jam that eventually fizzled out into a solo segment by MPC finger drumming master Jeremy Ellis. If you aren’t familiar with Ellis, he is a nerdy looking British dude that creates huge beats on multiple MPC drum machines using nothing but his fingers. He is a sight to behold, running through a few distinct jams based around “Gonna Fly Now” aka “The Rocky Theme”, a James Brown track, and a celebratory run through the theme from Super Mario Bros. Ellis whipped the crowd into a frenzy with his unique musical talent, and he is an artist that needs to be seen to be believed.Next up, Black Thought introduced John Mayer, who treated the excited fans to one of his first sets of solo material since October 2015. Of course, Mayer spent the past 10 months on tour with Dead & Company, but fans got to see Mayer in band-leader mode when he walked on stage with The Roots. He brought veteran bassist and John Mayer Trio member Pino Palladino with him to play the set, and he did not disappoint, linking up with his old friend Questlove to make up an impressive rhythm section that ruled the stage for the rest of the evening. Mayer would open the set with a solo ballad before dropping into a funky version of “Waiting on the World to Change” that was taken down a few steps to meet Mayer’s new vocal range. Mayer was on fire on guitar, pushing the band into full improv mode for a lengthy jam. The band then launched into a heartfelt version of “Gravity” that brought the house down with several impressive, Eric Clapton-esque guitar solos. The band then finished off Mayer’s portion of the evening with the funky, reggae-tinged cover of “Ain’t No Sunshine” that he’s been playing in his live show for years.Watch John Mayer perform “Gravity” and “Ain’t No Sunshine” with The Roots, courtesy of YouTube user shuamaniOf course, just because he was done with his portion of the show, doesn’t mean John Mayer was done for the evening. He stuck around to perform “You Got Me” with The Roots, adding rhythm guitar while Captain Kirk Douglas of The Roots crushed his traditional solo on the soulful track. The band then left the stage as beatbox master Rahzel entered. Rahzel’s shtick is a bit tired at this point, even if it remains ridiculously impressive. Yes, he did his “Transformers” segment, yes he performed “If Your Mother Only Knew” (and yes he did the beat and the chorus at the same time). The best part of his segment was easily when he and Black Thought teamed up to perform Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh‘s “La Di Da Di”.Finally, it seemed time for D’Angelo to take the stage, when, out of nowhere, Dave Chappelle was introduced. He walked on stage and said “If I’m here it means two things. Kevin Hart isn’t available, and D’Angelo is late.” Needless to say, Questlove and Black Thought cracked up at his commentary, as the stage was set up around them for D’Angelo’s massive band. When the band took the stage, Pino Palladino re-joined the band (he is D’Angelo’s long time bass player as well), as well as Mayer, who would join D’Angelo for the entire set as lead guitarist. D’Angelo himself was incredible, with his unique soulful vocals reminiscent of Prince or James Brown.The band was extremely tight, with Questlove leading the charge throughout as they ran through songs from throughout D’Angelo’s career. “Brown Sugar” and “Playa Playa” were both highlights from D’Angelo’s Voodoo record, as the singer absolutely owned the stage with his awesome abilities as a frontman and band leader. The set also featured a healthy dose of material from his remarkable 2014 album Black Messiah, including an awesome take on “Back to the Future (Part I)”.  Mayer had a goofy grin on his face throughout the set, seemingly in disbelief that he got take part in this set. He returned his excitement ten-fold, with a number of wild guitar solos that added a unique element to D’Angelo’s set. It was truly a “had-to-be-there” moment, and all the musicians on stage knew it, as everyone on stage was jubilant as the set came to a close.Here’s over an hour of fan-shot footage, which includes the entire D’Angelo segment, courtesy of YouTube user Dear Marie BR:This was a truly incredible showcase of music that will not be soon forgotten! The Roots return to Bryant Park today for three wild sets, backing up David Byrne, Nile Rodgers, and Wu-Tang Clan in an ode to NYC as they bring their NYC Roots Picnic to a close.last_img read more

  • Mining history for new solutions

MEDIA CONTACTS • Alan Fine Public Affairs Manager, AngloGold Ashanti +27 11 637 6383 [email protected] • Khosi Shongwe Media Liaison and Communications Officer, AngloGold Ashanti +27 11 637 6259 [email protected] RELATED ARTICLES • SA’s junior mining sector vibrant • South Africa’s economy: key sectors • Mines, headgear and the mind • SA best for regulation of exchanges • Boost for black-owned firms in SAMark CutifaniThese are great days to be a South Africa-based multinational company. If nothing else, the 2010 Fifa World Cup shone a light on our ability to host a successful world-class sporting event – and demonstrated the achievements made in 16 years of democracy.I have lived and worked out of Johannesburg for the last three years, after 30 years’ business experience across 25 countries and five continents. This allows me to appreciate what those who haven’t had the opportunity to work in South Africa cannot, and what some local business leaders also find difficult to grasp.Yes, South Africa has problems. With its history, how could it be otherwise?Most citizens are concerned about crime, even though it seems to be on the decrease. But in my experience people are even more concerned about our future direction, particularly opportunities for their children. A system built during apartheid for the support of a 10% minority will invariably struggle as it gears to provide for the majority, without depriving the previously advantaged. This is both a herculean and sensitive pathway for us to navigate.Undoing the apartheid legacy is still a subject of debate. The solution must be in repairing the damage in a way that supports relatively strong economic growth, so as to eradicate widespread race-based poverty, the ultimate consequence of apartheid. Growth strategies require complex trade-offs and value judgments.The remarkable thing is how South Africans have gone about grappling with these difficult questions. No country debates its policy issues more passionately. So, for example, when the ruling African National Congress‘s youth league calls for the nationalisation of mines, the response from their seniors is cool, considered and rational, while also conscious that sensible solutions to deep, racially-based economic inequalities are needed.Indeed, the mining industry itself is encouraged to participate in these debates, even though it is seen as having colluded in the apartheid system.Much of 2010 has seen rigorous engagement between the government, the established mining sector, organised labour and emerging black mining businesses seeking better paths to transformation while recognising their common interest in the sector’s profitability and growth.That process is not complete, but there are signs that a balance will be found, continuing the country’s happy culture of constructive internal engagement developed in the 20 years since political parties were unbanned and political prisoners such as Nelson Mandela released.The political support for the mining industry is as good as anything I have seen anywhere. Contrast, for example, the South African government’s decision to delay a new mining royalty regime because of the global financial crisis, with the punitive tax laws passed by the Australian government. Similarly, political support for mining in the US is somewhat more fragmented than in South Africa.Yes, the government is taking an increasingly tough line on safety and the environment. But that is their job, and these are areas where the industry has work to do. There have been one or two worrying regulatory decisions on mineral rights, but we are not unlike many jurisdictions where those with the best lawyer benefit from weaknesses in legislation. The key is that we recognise and correct our weaknesses – this has been our history.The nature of conversations between business and trade unions is also refreshing. While unions sound uncompromising to the unfamiliar ear, the focus is invariably on finding solutions to issues in which we have common interests, such as occupational safety. Even wage negotiations, while tough, are aimed at finding mutually acceptable solutions. These conversations are far more difficult in “developed” jurisdictions.South Africa is remarkable in its ability to innovate from within. It is the only country to successfully stage three major global sporting events – the cricket, rugby and soccer world cups.

  • MAIB Improper Lookout Led to Collision off Scotland

    first_imgzoom The cargo ship Daroja and the bunker barge Erin Wood collided some two miles east of Peterhead, Scotland in August 2015 due to improper lookout on either vessel, a report from the UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) shows.According to MAIB, watchkeepers in both vessels were unaware of the risk of collision and took no action to avoid the other ship.In the incident, which occurred on August 29, 2015, in daylight and good visibility, the bunker barge Erin Wood was badly damaged and its crew put in danger. There was also some minor pollution from leaking fuel cargo.The investigation revealed a number of safety issues, including lookout in order to detect other vessels and assess the situation and highlighted the potential consequences when the risks associated with the Officer of the Watch (OOW) being the sole lookout are not effectively addressed.MAIB has made a series of safety recommendations to the managers of both vessels intended to raise the standards of watchkeeping at sea.A recommendation has also been made to the St Kitts and Nevis International Ship Registry regarding the inspection of new vessels joining the flag.last_img read more
