"GNU-JAZZ from PLANET FLIPPO"
A blend of the expansive and creative music of Dr. Dave Flippo
mixed with equally unique arrangements of contemporary gems by Hendrix, Bowie, Lenon/McCartney, Flippo, Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Steely Dan, Amy Winehouse, Radiohead and more.
Their 5th CD - Life on Mars - won the 2018 National Jazz Connects Award for their recording of If Six Was Nine by Jimi Hendrix.
The Trio: Life On Mars - Bowie, arr. Flippo
Fool on the Hill
Lenon / McCartney
If 6 Was 9
Life on Mars
Bye Bye Blackbird
The Jets Song
Here, There & Everywhere
Tangled Up In Blue-Dylan-at Fitzgeralds
A fun and evocative way to introduce minds, both young and old, to ancient wisdom of how the world and people behave. The program picks from eighteen vocal settings of the ancient Tao Te Ching by Lao Tsu.
Dr. Dave Flippo's study (and work toward implementation) of these varied lessons inspired him to "paint" various lyrics in a wide variety of styles: swing, bossa, ambient, rock, ballad, tango, bossa nova, Indian-jazz and others.
From their 2021 Re-Release now on International Radio/Web "Tao Tunes"
Superstition - Stevie Wonder
" Flipped Out!"
Writing, performing and recording for 25 years has yeilded five CD's and enough high energy, intense groove pieces to easily fill a set for any street or concert festival. A mix of new and old originals, several with a jazz fusion flavor, plus a mix of contemporary covers by Hendrix, Radio Head, Dylan and Winehouse. A quartet give you the biggest sound. Vocals
are always an option.
