Goodnight, Texas - At the Crossroads of Folk, Blues and Rock ‘n’ RollHear more shows like this as wisdom says the two frontmen of a band shouldn’t live on opposite sides of the United States, but that's never seemed to deter Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf. Drawing their name from Pat and Avi’s onetime geographic midpoint between their homes in San Francisco and Chapel Hill, NC (the real town of Goodnight in the State of Texas, a tiny hamlet east of Amarillo), the four-piece also exists at the center of its songwriters’ contrasting styles — via a 1913 Gibson A mandolin and a 2015 Danelectro, at the crossroads of folk and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, in a place where dry wit and dark truths meet hope and utmost sincerity.Website/Socials:https://hiwearegoodnighttexashowareyou.comIG: @goodnighttexasTwitter: @goodnight_texasFB:
One of the most versatile and cosmopolitan saxophonists in pop, soul and contemporary jazz for nearly 35 years, Michael Paulo has added his distinct saxpertise to a virtual who's who of artists, including Al Jarreau (Paulo's longest term touring association), James Ingram, No. 1 Smooth Jazz Trumpeter and guitarist Rick Braun and Peter White, Oleta Adams, Kenny Loggins, Patti Austin, Jeffrey Osborne, Jeff Lorber, David Benoit, Carl Anderson, Bobby Caldwell, Johnny Mathis and more. Paulo grew up in a musical family (his father a pianist, his mother a singer, his siblings all playing instruments) and though he came upon the sax relatively late at age 15, he quickly became first horn player in his high school band and was playing professional gigs around the islands within a few years. Rather than accept a scholarship to North Texas State, he chose a more adventurous road by joining Hawaiian pop/rock band Kalapana, which had some success on the mainland but was most popular in Japan. After playing regularly and recording on all four of Kalapana's albums from 1975 through 1979, Paulo recorded a solo album for Japanese release on Trio records. In addition to exposing him to the Japanese jazz audience, Tats in the Rainbow gave him the opportunity to work with legendary pianist Herbie Hancock.WWW.MICHAELPAULO.COMHTTPS://WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/SAXHAWAII
This Episode Presented by JamBoxx - "Styled after a harmonica, the MIDI wind controller is a new way to play music with your slightest breath"Hear more shows like this one at“Many in body but one in mind” is an ancient Buddhist concept which signifies a unity that has at its heart, respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. This unity can be formed only among those who respect one another and cherish each other’s unique attributes and abilities, while working in harmony to compensate for one another’s weaknesses. In essence, many people having the same feeling, thought or aim toward a goal.This has been a major theme for Eyedentity over the years and through many transformations since its inception in 1997. Searching for their own voices in a family of giants, it can be witnessed in the desire of its founding members to individuate themselves from their legendary forefathers, all the while preserving, sharing and honoring their history as they forge ahead together into the musical unknown.Diana Purim began her musical career in 1972, touring with Chick Corea’s Original Return to Forever in the belly of her mother. She grew up on the road traveling like a gypsy from country to country with her parents, Brazilian Jazz pioneers, singer Flora Purim and percussionist Airto Moreira. Krishna Booker is the son of renowned Jazz bassist, Walter Booker, nephew of Wayne Shorter and godson of Herbie Hancock. Credited by Herbie in his book for introducing him to Hip Hop and the idea for “Rock It”, Krishna began his musical career beat-boxing for Herbie. He later went on to making original music with Diana, his wife and childhood friend.The two share a deep love of music and a background in Jazz, Funk, Brazilian and Latin Fusion. Their passion for all kinds of music fueled the fire of their creativity and together, they stretched the boundaries of Hip Hop by fusing it with all their multicultural musical influences. “For the purists, we remind them that even Jazz is an art form born of Blues and Classical music. In fact,” explains Diana, “all of the world’s music has evolved from its most primitive indigenous origins, being shaped and molded by geographical, political, social and cultural influence to become what it is today.”Using their Hip Hop experience to carry them through their first Trip Hop venture, they found some success with a single called “Heavy Interference” from their first release. “It was a struggle for us to find our true sound,” says band leader / composer / percussionist / producer, Krishna. “We’ve been influenced and inspired by so many styles of music and were using the Eyedentity platform to experiment with them all. Although we had some brilliant moments, we hadn’t achieved a homogenous and unified sound until now. I feel like we have finally found Eyedentity’s identity with this new album.”During the search for their unique Urban/Brazilian sound, they began to notice commonalities in the art and music of varying countries, especially within the slaveculture, music, spirituality and art of oppressed peoples. In Brazil, slaves were allowed to bring their culture from their countries of origin. We clearly see this reflected in their spirituality, dance, art, food and music. The slaves in America were more restricted and forced to abandon their culture for the customs of their oppressors or risk being beaten or killed for not complying. Yet somehow, they found other ways of expressing their authenticity without risking life and limb through the musical mediums of Jazz, Blues, Rock, Hip Hop, etc…

Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean


The music that Wyclef Jean has written, performed, and produced — both as a solo superstar and as founder and guiding member of the Fugees — has been a consistently powerful, pop cultural force for over two decades. In 1996, the Fugees released their monumental album The Score, which inspired notoriously prickly rock critic Robert Christgau to write: "so beautiful and funny, its courage could make you weep." The album, created in Wyclef’s studio in his uncle’s basement in New Jersey, hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart, spawned a trio of smash singles (including their indelible reinvention of Roberta Flack’s 1973 ballad "Killing Me Softly"), and is now certified six times platinum. But Wyclef, a child prodigy with a wealth of musical influences from jazz to classic rock to reggae, resisted the pressure to duplicate the sound and style of that masterwork. Instead, he launched himself as a producer and solo artist whose work drew from an innovative and eclectic palette that included elements of pop, country, folk, disco, Latin, and electronic music.

Inside outsider David Garfield seizes the opportunity to create “Outside the Box”The ambitious jazz-R&B keyboardist gathers his all-star friends to create a massive multi-record, multi-genre collection that has already scored a Billboard hit single.David Garfield was nineteen when he got his start playing alongside influential bebop jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. But opportunities came quickly for him in contemporary jazz as well as in R&B and pop, which guided the direction of his now five-decade career away from his roots. Straight-ahead jazz has remained in his core and he’s longed to return “home” thus to launch his prolific multi-volume, multi-genre “Outside the Box” collection, Garfield will drop his first straight-ahead jazz album, “Jazz Outside the Box,” on March 23 via his Creatchy Records label.

What gives Third World the staying power so rare in the music industry?" Third World is more than just one of the top Reggae bands of all time, it is an institution that stands for producing and performing music that, while holding firm to the cultural and ancestral roots of its members, still pushes forward the cutting edge of music worldwide. It is an institution whose themes are positive, progressive and internationally relevant: an asset to any size festival / event.

I am actually a late starter because I didn't really start learning guitar until I was about 18 years old. My very first instrument were drums but it was not until I I heard secular music that my ears and interests opened up big time birthing the dream to be a guitar player. I soon found myself seeking to collaborate with those I could really learn from (no matter how much older they were or what genre they excelled in) and so I would pursue that opportunity while taking music courses in a junior level and mostly because I really admired any musician that had the understanding of what music was in a ledger form and so I kept trying to surround myself and tried to soak in all I could with those who could speak theory and notation and not just learn from those who though they were fine talented and amazing performers with gifted ears, yet had no real idea how to communicate it to others of a more academic level." ismaelvargasjr
