A little bit of jammin', a little bit of jazz, three continents of home-brew voodoo, and the snap-brim chic of soul: the ingredients for the Dave Matthews Band's musical stew sound like a recipe for some pretty amazing music. Take rock's original jam masters, the Grateful Dead; not only did they set up their own label (hello, ATO), but on the funky shuffle of "Scarlet Begonias" they strike the perfect (and nearly impossible) balance between locked-down and laid-back. Like Matthews, South African Johnny Clegg fronts a multi-ethnic band famed for its staggering stage prowess. [i]Unlike[/i] Matthews, Savuka melds township jive with worldbeat, and the undeniable groove of their "Dela (I Know Why the Dog Howls At the Moon)" helped push [i]Cruel, Crazy, Beautiful World[/i] to #1 on the World Music charts. And if it's [i]groove[/i] you want, who better than the mighty Godfather of Soul, James Brown, gushing out funk by the sweat-drenched capeful in "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine, Pt. 1." From John Coltrane to the Talking Heads, from Parliament to U2, we've got the key cuts and the essential artists that made the DMB go OMG.
