In celebration of International Jazz Day and still buzzing from the Art of Cool Fest, I had the pleasure of speaking with duo Gretchen Parlato and Alan Hampton last weekend. Also viewing them live as a pair for the first time, their chemistry onstage is undeniable. Students at the prestigious Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz Performance in NYC, they honed their crafts and Gretchen’s worked with several jazz greats and recently snagged a Best Jazz Vocal Grammy nod last year for her ‘Live In NYC’ album. Alan, who released his sophomore album ‘Origami for the Fire’ in 2014 has also worked with esteemed musicians like Esperanza Spalding, Meshell Ndegeocello and Sufjan Stevens.

AOCFEST15-ARTISTS1

For live music lovers, it’s no secret festival season’s arrived. Tis the time to travel now that winter worries are long gone to see your favorite artists. No stranger to North Carolina as I made the trek to attend MoogFest last year, I knew NC, with pockets of vibrant, homegrown artistic communities, would be a dope spot for a fest. Reading the hype about last year’s inaugural Art of Cool (AOC) Fest, this would be a part of my 2015. Making the trek back to NC with several other jazz, funk and soul enthusiasts, we descended upon Bull City/Durham for a weekend of fun.

In search of traveling music yet again and in anticipation of International Jazz Day coming up next week, there’s only one band who fits this situation perfectly- Twin Danger. Driving downtown in Austin for SXSW a few weeks ago, I got excited as I couldn’t miss their highway billboard announcing their showcases. After listening to their jazz cover with a sting of Queens of The Stone Age’s “No One Knows”, their UMG showcase stood firmly penciled into my SXSW schedule. Slow and seductive on the record but lively and energetic onstage, they pay homage to the club jazz of yesteryear with a modern noir edge.

The ScriptFrom the US to Japan, through Australia, New Zealand and South Africa: The Script‘s tour arrived in Italy recently. A few weeks ago, we had the chance to warmly welcome the Irish band to Milan. After the great success they had in 2013, the group returned to play the Mediolanum Forum in Assago and the audience that came equipped from every part of Italy, with lots of flags and posters of their favorite songs’, waiting for their moment to sing with Danny O’ Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power. Just a few minutes late, the show began and everything became green with balloons, bracelets and lights everywhere as the entrance left the audience speechless.

Introducing: Eric Leboff

With some surprise, my recent talks with Virginia native Eric Leboff led me to discover something I either hadn’t considered or just simply didn’t know before: a musician can be born inside of anyone. Leboff’s musical side has always been there, to be sure. From his college days, he found a great deal of inspiration. 16772_10204771715545085_3152120635021540121_n

I think for a lot of people what they listen to in college really resonates and even if you later “outgrow” those bands they stick with you in some sense and are almost part of your DNA. Read more

Interview: DORO

It’s not every day that one gets the opportunity to chat with a Reigning Royal of Metal. Frontwoman of the classic band Warlock, I cherished the chance to connect with German artist Doro Pesch before she recently embarked on a North American spring tour, continuing the commemoration of her 30th anniversary (which is a big feat for anyone in any genre) in the music biz and I figured,as accomplished a career she’s had, she’d have great stories to share. Touring with Megadeth, Metallica, Judas Priest and Motorhead just to name a few, she’s seen the world and left her mark on some of rock’s biggest stages.

As I happily prepared to settle into hermit behavior this past weekend, it was going to take a natural disaster, lack of internet or a pretty dope event to tear me away from #Couchella. The idea of viewing artists live I’d never seen with air conditioning, indoor plumbing and lack of sweaty douchebags stood ever appealing. Yet Pandora enticed me away for a moment with the promise of a dope party DJed by SoSuperSam and Questlove. I’d seen both DJ before (SoSuperSam locally in LA at Club Nokia and Questlove at last year’s Silent Disco at The Life Is Beautiful Fest in Vegas) so I knew a good time lie ahead.
