There is a bunch of music that has a special feel and sound to it. Examples are Dr. John's Gris-Gris Zuzu Mamou and Dream Warrior, Miles Runs the Voodoo Down, Jimi's Voodoo Chile, much of Tony Joe White's general material. It often has a slow tempo and very funky beat, strong bass, lots of percussion, sometimes only uses one chord or just in a single key, sounding mostly minor or pentatonic. I used to refer to it as swamp music, but it appears that so much comes under that heading like Zydeco, Cajun, certain kinds of blues, R&B. What I'm looking for has a special feel, mood, movement. And it doesn't have to have any hoodoo recipes.
Anybody out there got some thoughts? Be most grateful.
