The Music of Nina Simone at Lincoln Center, 12.08.12

Last Saturday, we had the pleasure to be at Lincoln Center’s Allen Room to listen to vocalist Kim Nalley doing an amazing job when interpreting the best of Nina Simone's repertoire. The band included the equally amazing James Carter on sax, Greg Skaff on guitar, Tammy Hall on piano, Michael Zisman on bass and Kent Bryson on drums.

Oh, and if that wasn’t enough: Check out the great view of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline behind the stage!

José James @ Weeksville Heritage Center, Brooklyn, 06.05.11

José James was as amazing as always when he performed last weekend with his band at Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn. It was super relaxed, like a garden party with friends! He performed with Christopher Smith (bass), Takuya Kuroda (trumpet),  Adam Jackson (drums),  Francis LoCrasto (keyboard). In case you missed him, on June 14 is your next chance to see him in NYC, at the SummerStage Gala in Central Park.

Theo Bleckmann and Ben Monder Duo @ Gowanus Jazz Fest NYC 05.14.11

Bleckmann's music has been described as many things, including "otherwordly." Best is probably to just check out the 2 videos below and see for yourself! Guitar player Ben Monder was no less amazing.
