Thread: Deantoni Parks 'Prog on the Prairie'

    Deantoni Parks 'Prog on the Prairie'

    An interesting take on mixing prog and country by drum maestro Deantoni Parks - who has drummed for the likes of The Mars Volta, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Meshell Ndegeocello, John Cale...

    He just released a new album 'Silver Cord' that's on streaming services today - I'd recommend the tracks Tears In Rain 1 & 2, Outransient, Axxxl & Saffronshine!

    Interesting stuff indeed, although it sounds more like something from out on the experimental edge of hip-hop than anything resembling prog or country.

    check him out with Omar in a more pure prog context - he is absolutely one of the most impressive and inspiring drummers i've ever heard when playing in a more "traditional" style



    and his jazz fusion project Kudu has some of the best drumming ever laid down on record, period! in my eyes.

    Interesting clip, thanks. I feel he would make a good collaborator for Robert Glasper.

    I like that first clip. Omar's discography is much too large (and from when I was trying to pay attention to it) and much to disappointing for me to really pay attention. Where can I find things like that in that quagmire?
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    The 2009-2010 era has some gems I think you'll like!

    For a live gig from this same tour or around that time, check out Dōitashimashite (2010)
    Solar Gambling (2009), Cizaña de los Amores (2010), Xenophanes (2009) are studio albums of very high quality from the time - all song oriented and all very cohesive albums

    Of his more recent batch of releases (2016-2017), I would recommend checking out Zen Thrills, Cell Phone Bikini, El Bien Y Mal Nos Une, Umbrella Mistress, Blind Worms Pious Swine, Sworn Virgins, Zapopan. It is a lot of albums, yes! But these ones are all quite cohesive, song oriented, and highly enjoyable different styles to each other and in his discography.

    Hmm...I'm not really sure how that first vid can be considered 'song oriented'. (That's not usually my thing either)

    But thanks, ill poke around a couple of those albums (if I can find samples somewhere) and see where it leads me.
