Watch Standing on the Corner Art Ensemble’s new film ‘G-E-T-O-U-T!! The Ghetto’
The Brooklyn-based experimental jazz & hip-hop group delivers “A SPECIAL SHAPE SHIFTING MESSAGE OF CONCERN”
Another required viewing ICYMI from a few months ago… Gio Escobar’s Standing On the Corner Art Ensemble released their new record G-E-T-O-U-T!! The Ghetto with an accompanying film directed by legendary NYC radio DJ Carlos de Jesus. The film, which is set on an imaginary 70’s era musical variety show called Night Beat, sees the group performing live versions of the new record on a dimly lit stage. SOTC’s signature post-genre blending of styles is shown in full force as the group smoothly transitions from breakbeat hip-hop to soul, funk, fusion, ultimately landing at a beautiful experimental jazz rendition of African-American spiritual Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen.
The film comes with a poignant message:
“This song, a promise to rid our souls / of the demons in our midst / negative harmful spirits / shadows of pain / when all we really desire / is a pinpoint of light / in harmony with / our shared desire / in harmony with / our shared joy”
