Zach Deputy - amazing musical talent

I just discovered a great talent - Zach Deputy. Al Kooper calls his music soul. He is white and whatever you call it he is amazing. I watched a 9-minute video of him performing live. He performs live in a most unusual way: He lays down loops live. That is, starting from nothing he plays one instrumental line which is recorded, then a second over the first, then a third over the first and second. After 7 or 8 he plays and sings over all the accumulated loops. An amazing talent.

Al Kooper featured Zach among nineteen other soul tracks, most originals from the 1950s to 1980s. Zach is #9 on Kooper’s page linked below. (You have to go way down the page to entry #9.) He is the only one that includes a video.

Watch the video of "Put it in the Boogie” at Al Kooper’s New Music for Old People for August 1, 2014.

And Zach Deputy’s own site.
