Curry’s understated approach to creating the tracks on Melt My Eyez See Your Future made their transition to live accompaniment that much sweeter. The band, boasting a 10-piece configuration, supplied Curry with each bass groove or trumpet wail the artist needed to recontextualize his discography for the performance.
The crew’s effortless cohesion was evident not only from their performance but also from Curry’s celebratory shouts.
“We only did this rehearsal twice,” Curry says after a stunning rendition of “Troubles.”
It seems Curry’s earlier work was also begging for the neo-soul treatment his later works received. “DIET_,” “CLOUT COBAIN | CLOUT CO13A1N” and “RICKY” all soar to new heights against a choir of brass and tenderly plucked strings.
