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!

2011 WFMU Record Fair, NYC

Looking for vinyl at the WFMU Record Fair turned out to be the best way to escape the thunder snow storm last Saturday in NYC. The fair took place from Friday October 28 through Sunday October 30, 2011, at Manhattan's Metropolitan Pavilion.

If you missed it, don't worry; there are other record fairs in the city, for example one at the Brooklyn Bowl on Sunday, December 4th.

And here it is Flying Lotus with Thundercat (bass) and Austin Peralta (keyboard). Sorry for the blurry video, we had "technical difficulties".


Summer Record Sale @ ARC 06.17-26.11 

If you are looking for records (vinyl, CDs and cassettes), here is your chance: The ARC record sale. From the ARChive of Contemporary Music's facebook entry:

"The ARC is a not-for-profit archive with the largest popular music collection in the world (2,000,000 sound recordings). We collect two copies of every sound recording, then sell third copies to help fund the archive at our annual Record + CD Sale. (20,000 items for sale)."

If this doesn't get you excited, we're not sure what will.

We were fortunate enough to go to the pre-sale yesterday and found lots of stuff in very good condition with price tags no higher than seven dollars. (You can also find super rare records, but even those are hardly more than $50).

The ARChive of Contemporary Music is at 54 White Street (between Broadway & Church in Tribeca). Take the 1 train to Franklin, or any train to Canal.
