I've been looking for something to blog on Scott Healy for awhile. The Rock House Artist/Instructor ( www.rockhousemethod.com ) has been hard at work and finished up his new project The Coalition "Naked Movies."
From http://www.fractalent.com/ Naked Movies is the culmination of a search by four musicians on a mission to create something different, something wholly unique. Equally inspired by the energy and ideas coming from the techno and jam band scenes that have sprouted up in the past ten years, these seasoned New York players (aptly known as The Coalition) have drawn on their collective pop, rock and jazz roots to put together a new sound that defies easy categorization.
Scott Healy: fender rhodes, farfisa organ, clavinet, digital mayhem
Glenn Alexander: guitars
Shawn Pelton: drums and electronical voodoo
Mike Merritt: electric bass
Call it avant groove, post-jam band, organic techno-jazz-fusion or call it whatchuwanna, the resulting sound is as unprecedented as it is provocative. In a world of vacuum-packed sampled sounds and clone bands galore, retro-this, neo-that and same ol' same ol', Naked Movies can truly be called fresh and original.
