Kat Edmonson set to play NYC's Le Poisson Rouge / Daily News


EVERYONE WHO hears Kat Edmonson's voice finds it strange. Everyone, that is, but the singer. "I always assumed that I had a wonderful voice and that everyone would be drawn to it," Edmonson says. "It never occurred to me that it might seem strange or take some getting used to." High in pitch and tangy in tone, Edmonson's voice sounds like an animated character come to life. Once listeners acclimate, however, they tend to fall for it hard. Edmonson's new album, "The Big Picture," soared to No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart for developing artists, after earning across-the-board critical raves. On Tuesday March 3rd, the 31-year old will bring her eccentric sound to New York City's Le Poisson Rouge.    READ THE FULL Daily News ARTICLE

Isabel Rose new video 'Never Satisfied' - HuffPost


From isabel Rose - "Thanks to the late great, Joan Rivers--who probably rolled over in her couture casket when she was snubbed by the Academy Award's this year--red carpet shows have become cultural events in and of themselves, like the Macy's Day parade or the Super Bowl half-time show. Judging from the copious twitter strings that allow the public to weigh in now, too, many people care more about watching the red carpet than they do about the actual ceremony that follows. As a reflection of American values, it seems that spectacle, taste and branding are eclipsing the creative accomplishments that got them there. "Every artist who walks a red carpet today has to make a decision about what that moment will be used for: self-expression, self-exposure, political statement, branding, re-branding or all-of-the-above. Every artist who walks the red carpet today has to decide whom to please: their management, their studio, their stylist, their fans, their fans parents, their children, or--gasp--themselves. "I decided to use my latest video, 'Never Satisfied,' as an opportunity to explore these themes of sartorial criticism vs. self-expression while simultaneously paying homage to those iconoclasts whose individuality has stamped an indelible impression in our collective consciousness. It was also exciting to take a song I recorded about a relationship and turn it into something with less victimization attached. It was empowering and liberating, and dare I say it, as much fun as running through a field of daisies buck naked with a glass of Chardonnay."  WATCH THE VIDEO ON HuffPost

Simone Dinnerstein - Broadway-Lafayette /interview with Classic 107 Winnipeg


Pianist Simone Dinnerstein's new Sony Classical album, Broadway-Lafayette, celebrates the time-honored transatlantic link between France and America through the music of George Gershwin (Rhapsody in Blue), Maurice Ravel (Piano Concerto in G Major), and Philip Lasser (The Circle and the Child: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, written for Dinnerstein). The album was recorded with conductor Kristjan Järvi and the MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, by Grammy-winning producer Adam Abeshouse. Dinnerstein says, "Over the centuries, France and America have influenced and supported each other in many ways, and this music explores the link between the two cultures. George Gerswhin is the quintessential American composer. He immortalized his own trip to France in American in Paris and his music broaches aesthetic boundaries in a way that few other composers have managed – he combines the tunefulness and syncopation of jazz and popular music with the rich harmonies and rhythmic creativity of high art. Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue is particularly present in Ravel's Piano Concerto in G Major, written in 1929, the year after Ravel met Gershwin while on tour in the U.S. Philip Lasser, this album's living composer, is the son of a French mother and an American father, and grew up in a bilingual household. His musical voice is an amalgam of both worlds, circling around Bach's sun. His piano concerto, written for me in 2012, incorporates the Bach Chorale "Ihr Gestirn, ihr hohen Lüfte." The work explores ideas of travel and discovery, and of memory and return." Classic 107 Winnipeg - Michael Wolch sat down with Dinnerstein to discuss the album and the France | America connection.

Taarka Releases New Album, 'Making Tracks Home,' on March 24 / Grateful Web


The title of Taarka's 2013 album, Adventures in Vagabondia, wound up being a little too autobiographical when David Tiller and Enion Pelta-Tiller, the couple forming the band's core, lost their home in Colorado's devastating floods that fall. Which might be why they went with Making Tracks Home for their March 24, 2015 release. After an experience like that, home becomes even more special - though they're also making tracks to many other places on their upcoming tour. For a couple whose main instruments are violin and mandolin and who draw musical influences from Romania and Appalachia, the notion of travel is anything but foreign. And they like bringing it forth in song; weaving their bluegrass, Celtic, classical, pop-rock and gypsy-jazz explorations into a unique sonic quilt best characterized as indie folk.  READ THE FULL Grateful Web ARTICLE

Kondonassis | Vieaux - Together / Classic 107 Winnipeg interview


Internationally acclaimed harpist Yolanda Kondonassis and virtuoso and GMAMMY Award winning classical guitarist Jason Vieaux  recently joined forces to release their first duo recording, Together, on Azica Records. Featuring original works for harp and guitar including Alan Hovhaness' Spirit of Trees, Xavier Montsalvatge's Fantasia, Máximo Diego Pujol's Suite Magica, and two world premiere recordings of works commissioned by the duo: Knock on Wood (2012) by Keith Fitch and Hypnotized (2013) by Gary Schocker, Together was released on January 27, 2015 at all major retailers.  Kondonassis says, "A common thread in compositions written for harp and guitar is often a nod to world music cultures – Latin, Asian, Middle Eastern, and everything in between . . . the result is a sonic space unlike most chamber music territories." Vieaux adds, "Part of what we're doing is attempting to expand the repertoire for guitar and harp because we think the combination of these two instruments is beautiful." Classic 107 Winnipeg - Michael Wolch sat down with the duo to discuss the album and this unique collaboration. Listen to the attached clip.

Rant N Roll: Whimsical Frisell / Aquarian Weekly


Guitarists come and guitarists go and a few of them seemingly stick around forever. Bill Frisell, 63, is in this latter category. He's kissed the sky so many times in his evolving artistry that I thought I had him pegged as this avant-garde fusionist with forays into classical, noise and complex jazz. As house guitarist for ECM Records, he'd played with the brightest and the most adventurous of them all. In the all-too-hip New York City loft scene of the 1980s, his wizardry astounded even the most jaded of hipsters. But with the release of Guitar In The Space Age! (Okeh) late last year, he proves once again, he is not to be categorized. For it is here that he fondly remembers what got him there in the first place: "Tired Of Waiting" by The Kinks, "Pipeline" by The Chantays, "Rumble" by Link Wray, "Rebel Rouser" by Duane Eddy, "Baja" by The Astronauts, "Cannonball Rag" by Merle Travis, "Bryant's Boogie" by Jimmy Bryant and Speedy West, "Surfer Girl" by The Beach Boys, "Turn Turn Turn" by The Byrds and five more delicious morsels of basic, succinct, primal instrumental prowess. Helped along by a second electric, pedal steel, drums, vibraphone, acoustic and electric bass, acoustic guitar and slide guitar, Frisell plays these simplistic childlike mantras to his youth like a man committed to reaffirming his own value system. Jimi Hendrix said "may you never hear surf music again" as he ripped open the guts of novelty hits. Sun Ra said "space is the place" for his astral projections. Apparently, Bill Frisell is saying he's not the serious musician you think he is all the time. He probably reads comic books and watches cartoons because he obviously still loves this teenage twang.  SEE THE Aquarian Weekly PAGE

Lara Downes plays Berkeley's First Congregational Church / San Francisco Classical Voice


The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra brought their February concert series to a memorable conclusion on Sunday afternoon at Berkeley's First Congregational Church in a program featuring exceptional performances by pianist Lara Downes. Music Director Ben Simon introduced the West Coast premiere of Maria Schneider's Carlos Drummond de Andrade Stories as music that's "neither jazz nor classical." He didn't go so far as to mention Duke Ellington's famous quote defining "good music" but he may as well have because however one views the piece -- a five-part suite setting the Brazilian poet's words to music-- it casts a spell quickly and holds on. Lara Downes summoned the spirit of his Robert Schumann's famous wife Clara in Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor, as the soloist in a sumptuous performance by everyone involved was perfectly in sync with the orchestra from the concerto's opening bark through its rollicking, dance-like coda. Downes proved to be the perfect co-conspirator for Schumann's paean to lyricism over flash. During the first movement the pianist and orchestra explore the themes in tandem and in conversation before the orchestra drops out completely, leaving the piano teetering on the edge of a cliff. Downes stepped off this peak into the cadenza as if she were confidently descending a tightrope from dramatic heights into a delicate, sensual conversation before the orchestra rejoined her.

Simone Dinnerstein on "Crossing Out What's Written" / Interview with Iowa Public Radio


Do classical players focus too much on the written notes for the good of the music? Simone Dinnerstein explained why she thinks so when we talked last week. You can hear our interview below. Dinnerstein is the pianist who rocketed from obscurity to the top of theBillboard charts and many best-of-2007 lists with a self-financed recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. (She had been working as a piano teacher in Brooklyn, but soon outsold a new White Stripes release.) In 2010, Sony signed her, and now she's made her first recording with a symphony orchestra. It's called Broadway-Lafayette and includes Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue,Ravel's jazz-tinged Piano Concerto, and a beautiful new concerto, The Circle and the Child, written for her by her friend Philip Lasser. In our conversation she explained the album's title, and why she thinks that a printed score is not the same thing as the music. And she gave a fascinating example of why she thinks the relationship of composers to performers should not  be one-way  or top-down. Dinnerstein told me that Lasser writes poetic descriptions in his scores along with the usual musical notation. But, said Dinnerstein, "He has a different feeling about words than I do, so the words didn't make sense to me, and would make me play in an unnatural way. So I actually crossed out all of his words, and just played it how I felt the music was meant to be played. And then he loved how I played it. But when I tried to play it according to the words, it didn't come off right. And we've joked about that, about how he has to cross out the words for me." This brought her to a more general point, which helps explain why her maverick approach to Bach and other composers is so convincing. She said that regarding scores, "Many musicians are fundamentalists," by which she means "somebody who takes a written work literally." But in her view, "Everything that's written in a score is a very rough guide to what is meant -  it's quite hard for composers to write down exactly what they intended." Further, she said, "There's a real element to musical writing which is about the relationship between the composer who writes it and the musician who brings that music to life. And the musician might find something there that the composer never intended but is there nonetheless in the music." She's one of the most interesting musicians around, so give our conversation a listen. Then take the A-Train to Broadway-Lafayette, because the album is irresistible, whether you're a Gershwin-lover, a Ravel devotee, a Lasser fan, or (I'm willing to bet) a White Stripes fan.  LISTEN TO Simone Dinnerstein's INTERVIEW with Iowa Public Radio's Barney Sherman.

Top 10 Albums for March

Nilson Matta :

EastSideRioDrive

To reconsider an old expression, this album doesn't just represent the "best of both worlds" – but rather the collective greatness of at least three or four.  - Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal Bassist/Composer Nilson Matta releases "EastSideRioDrive," a uniquely creative recording that's got some real force and punch to it. The blend of South (Romero Lubambo, Cyro Baptista) and North (Anne Drummond, Craig Handy) American musicians– as well as pianist Edsel Gomez from Puerto Rico - is a wonderfully balanced mixture of jazzy sounds from the two hemispheres.  It's soothing and relaxing in places, but gutsy and bold in others – it utilizes the conventions of the genre creatively and, at the same time, refuses to be limited by them. 49 NEW  77 Total Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, Minneapolis, Denver, Detroit, New Orleans, Berkeley CA, San Antonio, Albuquerque, Louisville, Raleigh NC, Knoxville TN, Canada Online: Accuradio, Jazz From Gallery 41, Party934, KUHS, Soul City Radio

Avi Avital :

Vivaldi

The GRAMMY-nominated Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital has been praised as a both an "enthralling and sensitive soloist" (Boston Globe) and a "convincing advocate for his instrument" (Wall Street Journal).  As the first mandolinist signed to Deutsche Grammophon, he has brought the instrument to entirely new audiences, building a fresh legacy for the mandolin through virtuosic performance and a commitment to commissioning new works and arrangements in a range of genres. Avital has now released - Vivaldi, his third album on DG that returns the instrument to its origins-the Venetian Baroque and master composer Antonio Vivaldi. On this CD Avital captures the mystical spirit of Venice, shedding new light on Vivaldi's musical genius by performing his own transcriptions of the composer's works. He is joined on the album by the Venice Baroque Orchestra on this, the ensemble's twelfth recording on Deutsche Grammophon. Avital and the VBO are also about to embark on a major North American tour this spring, stopping in Southern California, Miami, Boston and Carnegie Hall as well as Calgary and Montreal. 25 New 'ON'  100 TOTAL SYND: Classical 24, Classical Guitar Alive, Sunday Baroque, CBC Direct: SiriusXM, Music Choice, MOOD, Spafax Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Wash DC, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle, Cleveland, Houston, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Denver, Portland, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Detroit, Austin, Memphis, Albuquerque, Louisville, Buffalo, Honolulu, Canada Online: ClassicallyHip, Tainradio
Kat Edmonson :

The Big Picture

Kat Edmonson announces October tour dates in support of her third album, The Big Picture out September 30 via Sony Music Masterworks. A full tour will follow in early 2015.

The album is her label debut and was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney) in his Los Angeles studio. Of the album, Edmonson states, "There's no particular theme, but there are some commonalities, one of which is my ever-underlying influence from motion pictures and film scores. I have always felt that music and film go hand in hand, because that was how I was first exposed to music-from old movies and musicals-and to me there wasn't a separation between an actor acting, dancing and singing." See full tour dates below. 
Branford Marsalis :

In My Solitude: Live at Grace Cathedral

Branford Marsalis continues to prove that there is no context too large or small to contain his gifts. One setting notably absent from Marsalis's resume until now has been the unaccompanied solo concert.  This most daunting of formats poses particular challenges that were met with his signature blend of serious intent, technical rigor and emotional directness when Marsalis brought his soprano, alto and tenor saxophones to Grace Cathedral on October 5, 2012.  This San Francisco landmark, the site of Duke Ellington's Sacred Concerts in the Sixties and, since 1983, home to recitals at the centerpiece of the annual San Francisco Jazz Festival, proved an ideal setting for a program spanning early and post-bop jazz, baroque and contemporary classical music and spontaneous improvisation.  The results can be heard on In My Solitude: Live at Grace Cathedral, the new album that Marsalis is releasing on his Marsalis Music via OKeh Records.
Mohammed Fairouz :

Follow, Poet
