50th anniversary of Amnesty's 700 West sessions – Part 2
July 16, 2023
This week on Echoes of Indiana Avenue, we’ll share the final episode of our two part series celebrating the 50th anniversary of Amnesty’s 700 West sessions by looking back at our 2019 interview with Amnesty’s vocalist Joe Trotter, percussionist Rafael Barnes, and sax player Gino Johnson.
Amnesty was a legendary Indianapolis funk band, known for their hard-hitting grooves and soaring vocal harmonies. The music Amnesty recorded at 700 West has been streamed millions of times online and sampled in hip-hop tracks by Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, and Ye - the artist formerly known as Kanye West.
On this week’s episode we’ll discuss Amnesty’s legacy, and share rare unreleased demo recordings from the band.
