Masterfully “Cool”: An album unlike any other by
Bob James and Nathan East
“The New Cool,” an expansive acoustic offering centered on scholarly jazz piano and bass duets, will be released September 18, a first from the GRAMMY®-honored artists and long-time collaborators.
Nashville, Tennessee (7 July 2015): Albums just aren’t made like the way “The New Cool” was made. Yamaha Entertainment Group label president Chris Gero put legendary keyboardist Bob James and master bassist Nathan East in the recording studio, equipped them with state-of-the-art Yamaha gear and gave them free reign to create. Recorded entirely in Nashville, the long-time collaborators emerged with an unexpected and audacious collection of original compositions plus a few handpicked classics, an acoustic jazz outing that will make you forget everything you thought you knew about these GRAMMY®-recognized artists best known as contemporary jazz luminaries. The disc produced by Gero, James and East will be released September 18.
“The New Cool” unfolds much in the way the meticulously-crafted project was conceived. The germ begins organically with a couple of intimate James and East duets. Pastoral piano wanderings explore the outer perimeter of straight-ahead jazz where they peruse, mirror and engage with meandering bass lines. In fact, more than half of the record’s compositions written by James and/or East are sparsely-produced, probing piano and bass sojourns.

Rock My Soul: The Fairfield Four and The McCrary Sisters
Friday, August 7, 2015 at 7:00 pm
Singing in the traditional African American a cappella gospel style that they have been known for since the group’s inception almost 100 years ago, The Fairfield Four continue to perform original, tightly harmonized pieces and traditional favorites. Teaming up with The McCrary Sisters—frequent Bob Dylan collaborators and the daughters of Fairfield’s late leader—the two virtuosic groups show how the spirit-stirring sounds of gospel sparked the rock and R&B revolution.
Staci Layne Wilson is known for writing and directing movies (Fetish Factory, Good Family Times), as well as authoring several books (Dark Lullaby, 50 Years of Ghost Movies). Darren Gordon Smith is a filmmaker (Repo! The Genetic Opera), wordsmith (Blurt: Curses & Verses, Seward’s Fall), and musician (The Livermores).
The two longtime friends and sometime collaborators (short film: The Night Plays Tricks, inspired by the music of Bob Dylan) have combined their talents to present a one-of-a-kind, amplifiers-to-11 anthology of short stories that’s as unsettling as it is hilarious.
Here’s some advance word on the book, Sex, Death, Rock N Roll:
“Fiery and fevered scribes Staci Layne Wilson and Darren Smith have delivered an anthology book devoted to rock n roll fuelled short stories which read as lyrical as the songs and music they pay tribute to. With an authentic and uncompromising dedication to musicians from decades past, Wilson and Smith deliver a highly energetic and equally nuanced set of stylish tales of obsession, cynicism, neurosis and rage – all driven by a street sensibility and catapulting from the varied voices of the angry outsider. Not to be missed!” – Lee Gambin, Author ‘We Can Be Who We Are: Movie Musicals From the 70s’
“This book shreds!” Lisa S. Johnson, Photographer/Author ‘108 Rock Star Guitars’
“Tales of the fantastic blended with the razor kiss of rock n roll.” – Tristan Risk, Burlesque Icon ‘Little Miss Risk’
“With back stories like these – Wilson’s dad is a rockstar (The Ventures), Smith is a musician (Repo! The Genetic Opera) - their stories have to be great. And they are!” Bobby Smith, Author ‘Bowie Bible’
Sex, Drug, Rock N Roll is now for sale in paperback and via Amazon Kindle.

Country music is a soundtrack of the south. With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots. Her wistful “Endless Summer” evokes a vivid panorama of rusted Woodies, shivering palm trees, abandoned surfboards and deserted cottages. “Somewhere the surf’s always up,” confirms this California girl.
Recorded in Nashville by eminent producer Kent Wells (noted for recent work with Dolly Parton) the tracks feature a skillful collective of Music City players supporting Amanda’s warm, confiding voice. Amanda sang live in the studio, bouncing her musical ideas off of enthusiastic players employing organic instruments. “I just love the vibe,” she says of the famous musical community, “Nashville has such an appreciation for original music.”
Working with accomplished collaborators Bill Diluigi and Melissa Bollea boosted Amanda’s confidence as a songwriter. She says that her lyrical mission is “To take a cliché that you hear everyday and twist it to make it personal and universal at the same time.”
Amanda Lamb discloses powerful truths in the song “Something in the Blood,” her personal homage to all of the inspirational people she has met who are living their lives with Type 1 diabetes, a condition that has been part of her reality since she was one year old. “The song is both literal and figurative,” says Amanda, “because there is strength, bravery and courage in my blood.”

Wednesday April 22nd was Earth Day. For 45 years people around the world, especially in the United States, Canada, and Europe, have celebrated April 22nd as a day to remember the Earth and what She means to us. Often times those who participate in Earth Day celebrations go through the rest of the year not even thinking about the damage that they may be causing to the very planet they celebrate once a year. In this week's edition of PWN KaliSara and RevKess will be talking about Earth Day and how to celebrate it year round.
In the beginning of the show one of the collaborators on "A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment", David Dashifen Kees, will be joining the hosts to talk about that Statement. David is a contributor to Pagan Activist. On Wednesday David shared the press release from EcoPagan announcing the statement's final draft - which was released in time for Earth Day. Many notable Pagans have already signed onto the Statement, which is open to any and all to sign. It is a statement from the Pagan community, but not the ultimate statement. Some will not agree with it in its entirety. Tune in to PWN and read the Statement to help decide for yourself.
