    Up Close & Personal with the Latin Tsunami of Salsa, Trumpeter " Luiz Gonzalez"

    in Music

    True Classic Salsa
    In the mid 80s, Luis González scored one of the
    most inspiring and career transforming gigs,
    touring and recording with one of his heroes,
    legendary percussionist and bandleader Ray
    Barretto (renowned by the masses for his 60s hit
    “El Watusi”). The Puerto Rican born, Milwaukee
    WI raised trumpeter was flattered when he heard
    Barretto tell a large TV audience that members
    of his large ensemble would someday become
    bandleaders and solo artists in their own right.
    A few decades later, after an extraordinary career
    working with some of his native island’s greatest
    artists (Tito Allen, Santitos Colon, Adalberto
    Santiago, Jerry Rivera) and the world-renowned
    salsa orchestras of Willie Rosario, Mulenze, Luis
    Perico Ortiz and Tommy Olivencia, González
    fulfilled Barretto’s powerful prophecy by launching
    his career as a recording artist.

    David Gogo is a Canadian blues guitarist, singer-songwriter and bandleader. Between 1994 and 2014, he released 12 solo albums. His latest release is entitled Vicksburg Call and we will explore David’s journey.

    Sam Butler was not able to make his scheduled appearance.

    Webb Wilder can sing you a song, or play a detective in a movie called Private Eye. And he does them both with a wiry grin.  Wilder has released Mississippi Möderne (he pronounces it Mo-Durn), his 10th album.  This is going to be a fun one me thinks…

    Couch Kid New Music brings good friends Wendy DeWitt and Kirk Harwood back to The Couch with their most excellent new album, Getaway.  The duo, who we last saw on the IBC Final stage, have brought in some friends to help out, but as always this is about the dynamics between Wendy and Kirk and how it can fill a room.  We’ll caht about their lives and music and more.

    in Entertainment

    Jeff Slate is taking The Weekend Wilburys all around New York and the North Eastern states. The Weekend Wilburys is the latest Family Friendly entertainment event and features Jeff Slate and the music of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and ELO. Jeff Slate is supported by Steve Holley, Rick Mullen and Jimmy McElliott. Birds of Paradox is Jeff's solo album and was released in 2012 and includes performances from many New York iconic musicians including our favorite Gary Van Scyoc on bass, Adam Ippoloto on Keyboards and Steve Holley on Drums. May Pang is responsible for many of the Birds Of Paradise members meeting each other and cooperating to make thuis wonderful album which featrues the art work of our very own Rick Hunt.November 2013 continued Jeff Slate's wonderful musical contribution to LIVE MUSIC with "Imposters and Attractions" which features 10 original compostions and two Costello classics and this album was released in a digital version. The best description of Jeff Slate's talent is in Jon Friedman's Bob Dylan biography "Forget about Today" "If you want to understand what makes Jeff Slate tick, just watch him perform in concert. It's all you really need to know about him as a bandleader, guitarist and singer. His love of the life and the work comes across in his music. When I caught Jeff at a late night gig here in New York City last summer, I was reminded once again, by the sheer therapeutic power of music to make people feel happy - that is when the sound is in the hands oi someone who loves what he is doing and wants to make a crowd happy."

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Drummer/Producer/Arranger EC3!

    in Music

    This will not be the first time that EC3 has visited our show.  Every time he drops by, there is always exciting news to share! And this time is no different - but let's back track....

    EC was born in Naples, the son of a respected tenor saxophonist, composer and arranger.  Early in his life, little Ernest must have decided to follow in his Dad's footsteps.  He was the youngest graduate of the Naval School of Music - and he flew from there!  There was work to be had in Los Angeles, but the call of Las Vegas proved to be a turning point in this drummer's career.  EC met Vincent Falcone, who had been Frank Sinatra's legendary pianist.  And he met Loretta Holloway, a much respected vocalist - who was looking for someone just like our guest.  EC became Ms. Holloway's Music Director - and shouldered some huge shows with her for over 12 years.  It was common to share the stage with Don Rickles, Jay Leno and David Brenner, among many others.  

    One of the biggest introductions that EC ever had was when he met bass master, Al McKibbon.  Al and EC had a connection that lasted for years.  Because of their intense working relationship - sometimes via 18 shows a week! - our Friend developed a fabulous set of career and life skills that have stayed with him.  And that has most certainly helped with the creation of his multiple projects.  When we first met EC, he was making the rounds of various venues in support of his "Her Eyes at Sunset."  Then, it was "It's All About the Rhythm."  Now, there's a new set of tunes - very much in the swinging, sassy, and Jazz-loving EC3 style.  It's called "My Rhythmic Point of View" and it's going to make you get UP and bossa your socks off ;)  We've got our talented visitor in-house to tell us all about it - on 10/6 - join us!

    Edward Evan Duncan "Eddy" Howard (September 12, 1914 – May 23, 1963)  was an American vocalist and bandleader who was popular during the 1940s and 1950s.


  • Holly Stephey & Ron Aprea ! New CD "Ron Aprea pays tribute to John Lennon!

    in Music

    Ron Aprea is extremely accomplished in his field for a guy who didn’t know what a saxophone was when he first started out. That’s right – one of the most talented (yet somehow under the radar) saxophone players around thought he was going to be playing clarinet. Ron grew up in Astoria, NY and clearly remembers seeing Pete Fountain playing the clarinet on television. Inspired to play, Ron went to his elementary school band director, Mr. Cahill, and asked to play  what he thought was Pete’s instrument, a saxophone.So that’s what the school gave him. That little mistake has given the world of Jazz an artist that contributes to the genre with exceptional skill to this day. John Lennon's life and artistry were taken from us in 1980, he left behind a treasure trove of musical masterpieces.Ron worked on Lennon's  Walls and Bridges album.  In 2014, Ron searched the former Beatle's library, and now pays a long-overdue tribute to the musical genius of  John Lennon. On Lennon's  Walls and Bridges album, John used 5 horns, dubbing them "Little Big Horns."  Ron's tribute also includes a horn section, along with a string ensemble, and added guest soloists.  The guest artists include trumpeter extraordinaire Brian Lynch, virtuoso violinist Matt Aprea,  jazz guitar veteran Dom Minasi, and a cameo performance by jazz vocalist Angela DeNiro.  Another special guest is trumpeter Steve Madaio, a fitting addition to this album, as Steve was also a member of the Walls and Bridges' Little Big Horns.  This collaboration is a mystical moment on this tribute, as Steve and Ron reunite in  a heart-felt tribute to their former bandleader,  with a stunning rendition of  Lennon's "Imagine".

    in Entertainment

    The Dream Foundry took root in 2009, when Kevin Wallbank and Sally
    Sharp-Paulsen met through mutual friend James Lowe, bandleader for The
    Electric Prunes. They found they had much the same taste in music and
    developed an unusual sound through their shared preference in genres and
    common interests. Though Kevin lived in Essex, England and Sally, a
    native Chicagoan, lived on the island of Bømlo in Norway, thanks to
    modern technology they were able to write and record. Sally does writing
    and vocals, and Kevin does the instrumentation, being adept in
    instruments as diverse as keyboards, guitars and mandolin. They are an
    example of how changes in music technology, and shared objective can
    result in a band creating music in two different countries. At present they are working and recording with Steve Ellis of The Love Affair, Widowmaker and The Ellis Band.

    The Dream continues...
