Recently, BRIC Art and Media House here in Forth Greene had the first-ever Jazzfest Marathon: Two nights with 18 bands on three stages. Think small version of the Winter Jazz Fest. From the second night we bring you a taste of two of the bands which we thought were especially amazing, Marcus Strickland's Twi-Life and Nate Smith + KINFOLK.

Twi-Life's line up was as follows:
Marcus Strickland (Sax)
Keyon Harrold (Trumpet)
Mitch Henry (B3 organ/keyboards)
Big Yuki Hirano (Keyboards)
Kyle Miles (Bass)
Charles Haynes (Drums)

Look for Strickland's solo starting at 5:06.




Nate Smith + KINFOLK are:
Nate Smith (Drums)
Kevin Hays (keys)
Jeremy Most (guitar)
Fima Ephron (bass)
Jaleel Shaw (sax)

Check out Kevin Hays' keyboard solo starting at 2:22:
