Aaron Frazer – 10 All Time Favs

»Introducing« is the name of Aaron Frazer’s first solo album. As the drummer of Durand Jones & The Indications, however, he is by no means an unknown name. So musically it’s off to the sixties. He tells us what actually influenced him musically.
Aaron Frazer: The story behind Connie Converse is just as intriguing as the music itself. A folk musician in NYC before the folk revival, disappeared without a trace, only leaving behind this enchanting set of sophisticated folk songs. All on acoustic guitar in her friend’s kitchen, Connie’s songs have more to do with Gershwin than the Harry Smith Anthology. Some of the most beautiful, heartbreaking singer songwriter tunes ever made.

Link Wray – Link Wray (Polydor) (1971)
Aaron Frazer: Recorded in a chicken shack on 3 tracks (1 channel was broken), Link Wray showed that his voice could carry as much power and ragged beauty as his iconic guitar tone. It’s full of songs that Van Morrison, Mick Jagger and The Band surely wish they wrote.

Jay-Z – Reasonable Doubt (Roc-a-Fella Records) (1996)
Aaron Frazer: The epitome of sophisticated cool. On his debut, Jay Z carries the swagger, style, wit and menace of Sinatra in his prime. So damn good top to bottom, it’s the standard bearer for staying true to oneself while cracking the code of commercial appeal.

The Beatles
The Beatles White Album 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
Capitol • 2018 • from 99.99€
Aaron Frazer: Look, I know a lot of people would say it’s not »cool« to pick a Beatles record, but records like the White Album are ubiquitous for a reason. Usually, double albums feel like they could have been trimmed down to a single disc. But this one is so jam packed with indispensable songs across such a wild range of styles- each half alone could go toe to toe with most artists’ best record.

Marvin Gaye
I want you
Motown • 1976 • from 15.99€
Aaron Frazer: Few musicians have carved out such an unmistakable sound. It’s complexity never diminished the sensuality. It feels like a warm bath by candlelight- inviting and luxurious.
