Editors’ Notes

A decade after his debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, Cody ChesnuTT refines his blend of old-school R&B and hip-hop attitude on Landing on a Hundred. Here, the Atlanta native sheds his bad-boy persona for a more mature outlook without losing his lyrical wit or musical daring. Partially recorded at Memphis’ legendary Royal Studios, the album often suggests Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, and (especially) Marvin Gaye in various combinations. More importantly, ChesnuTT asserts himself as a highly individual singer/songwriter as he acknowledges his past sins while expressing gratitude and faith. Tracks like “’Till I Met Thee,” “Everybody’s Brother," and “Love Is More Than a Wedding Day” are sweetly melodic excursions carried by his smoothly emotive vocals. The brooding “Don’t Follow Me” offers a cautionary tale, while the slinky “What Kind of Cool” and the urgent “Under the Spell of the Handout” take on social issues without preachiness. Punchy horns, billowing strings, and propulsive bass lines render the album’s crisp funk lines and melodic balladry with consistent excellence.

Landing On A Hundred

Landing on a Hundred

I met Cody for the first time a few years ago when he was a guest lecture for a Hip-Hop course that I co-taught with fellow PhD student, Greg Maridosian at FSU. From this first meeting, we developed a musical/philosophical bond which let to our friendship, my addition to the group, and a humble contributor to what I believe to be a terrific album.

The creation of this album is a story of wonder, inspiration, collaboration, faith, and hard work. Often starting with Cody presenting his songs (singing and playing guitar) in its rawest format, each song evolved into a work of splendid artistic endeavor. Cody is an incredible "old-soul" singer, songwriter, lyricist, and arranger. He was able to assemble musicians in the Tallahassee, FL community with diverse backgrounds, and orchestrated a shared vision of music with: soul, sophistication and gravitas.

When listening to this album, you will find yourself edified and entertained. Each track is an informed (knowledge & wisdom) investigation of real aspects of everyday life for most people.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy classic music that speaks to the past, present, and future sojourns through life.

All the best,

For Cody ChesnuTT, life in the music business looked promising from the start. Barely into his teens, he was performing on-stage in his Atlanta hometown, opening for acts that his dad was representing as their manager.
