Review - ECLECTIC THE EP by Randy McGill

"Multi-Instrumentalist originally from Kansas City now residing in South Florida covering a broad range of styles. Heavily influenced by artists such as Robert Glasper, Snarky Puppy and every musician still pushing for greatness. Real Music still lives!" 

The first track "Neeeooooohhhhhh" starts off very legendary with a clip of one of Martin Luther King Jr.'s speeches. The piano playing along with the beat compliments the speech very well and help to create a very compelling intro. The choir in the background adds to this track sonically too. "Your Eyes" has a very low-key but sensual sound that picks up when the chorus plays. You get a little bit more funk at that point. The instrumentation throughout was very impeccable. Speaking of funk, the next track is "Funktastic", which quite frankly lives up to its name. Very funktastic indeed and it puts you in a good enough movie to want to get out on the dancefloor. "Nakupenda Wewe" is very minimalist and has an extremely tribal element to it. "Kansas City" has strong instrumentation goin on throughout the track. If there is a track that makes you just want to sit back and relax, then this is it. "Neeeooooohhhhhh (Reprise)" brings the EP around full circle and brings it to a close. Same beat as the intro but different approach and way that the instruments were played. Randy McGill's EP, ECLECTIC has a very refreshing sound. A really excellent blend of Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Rock and if you're a fan of one or the other or all of them, then you will become a fan of Randy McGill after listening to his EP. Listen to ECLECTIC here.
