Dr. Dre’s Music Gets Orchestral. This Is A New Kind Of “Deep Cover.” (Video)

Dr. Dre’s music has pulled from many genres: R&B, Funk, Rock & Roll, Disco, Electronic, Jazz, and Pop. Now, Andre Young’s compositions are the inspiration behind an orchestra. Tonight (November 21) at Los Angeles, California’s Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Tarek Kandil and his The Love Ain’t Enough Orchestra are dedicating a concert to Dr. Dre. Fittingly, the Playing For Change Foundation (PFCF) and Mochilla affair is called “California Love.”

Previously, Mochilla helped produce 2009’s A Suite For Ma Dukes, a 60-piece orchestra performing music of producer James “J Dilla” Yancey. The historic event was made into DVD and album release.

According to an exclusive report by Noisey, Kandil’s band is anything but small-time. “In July, Mochilla and PFCF began pooling their experience and contacts, the pair began to assemble a historical line-up that includes Parliament-Funkadelic’s Bernie Worrell, a cornerstone of Dre’s G-funk sound, Steve Lindsey, Dre’s piano teacher, and Mark de Clive-Lowe, an internationally renowned musician, on keys. Joining them are Vince Wilburn, nephew of and drummer for the late Miles Davis, Leon ‘Ndugu’ Chancler, whose drumming can be heard on Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean,’ and local multi-instrumentalist Dexter Story on percussion,” confirms the report who adds that musician/arranger Todd Simon is also involved.

A special trailer captures some of the orchestra’s sound:

Check Mochilla for additional information. Event/concert co-producers Eric Coleman and B+ have worked with Dr. Dre in the past. It is not confirmed if the former N.W.A. member and 30-plus-year producer will attend. According to Coleman (who believes D-R-E will attend), Dre provided his blessing on the event.

In addition to J Dilla, Kanye West’s productions have been covered by an orchestra—later released to album. DJ Premier has also formed a band that plays many of his famous tracks with live instrumentation.
