Wendel Patrick, Saleem & Caleb Stine Late Night

July 11th, 2012 by The Professor

A great night for all. We opened with Caleb Stine, great local songwriter with a deep roots vibe, and killer guitar chops. Caleb was then joined by great local rapper Saleem (without his Music Lovers band), with whom he had created an album of rap/roots music. Then Saleem was joined by local producer/singer/beat wizard Wendel Patrick (aka mild-mannered Professor Kevin Gift) for a round of hip-hop and jazz-infused electronic fun.

Hashiguchi Goyo was a Japanese ukiyo-e printmaker who met an untimely death in 1921. During the last two years of his life, he carefully monitored the production of his final prints, eight of which would become some of his most important works.

Boogie Woogie Down the Stairs Apiece: Charlie Watts Live

July 1st, 2012 by The Professor

Alex, Ben, Charlie & David move to the Boogie Woogie mood

– by Radio RockonTour host Timothy Tilghman

Boogie Woogie music is enjoying an overdue rebirth with the fabulous talents of Alex Zwingenberger and Ben Waters on piano, Charlie Watts on drums, and David Green on upright bass. Together, this quartet is touring as the A B C & D of Boogie Woogie entertaining audiences on both sides of the Atlantic pond in celebration of 85 years of this unique piano style.

The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie proudly premiered in New York City with a grand total of nine gigs delivering a most memorable evening of magical music on Saturday, June 30, 2012, at the Iridium Jazz Club made famous by the late guitarist Les Paul located in Times Square.

ABC&D welcomed the preeminent American Boogie Woogie pianist Bob Seely on stage to play dueling duets and Lila Ammons to sing vocals on several choice songs as the musicians on stage rotated in configuration on piano. The stylish Lila is the granddaughter of Albert Ammons and her singing added a feminine dimension to the engaging performance.

The infectious selections of diverse material covered a colorful pallet of genres from Boogie Woogie bounce to Blues influences as well as Jazz vibes to R&B grooves plus enjoyable piano instrumentals showcasing the differing styles of Seely, Waters and Zwingenberger. Experiencing six seasoned hands transitioning across 88 keys apiece was musical mastery.

Zwingenberger, Watts & Green as a trio previously released The Magic of Boogie Woogie in 2010. With the exciting addition of Ben Waters, they christened themselves the ABC&D of Boogie Woogie. Now the prominent quartet is on tour in the Big Apple promoting Live in Paris, a live album recorded originally in 2010.

Ben Waters is a proud protégé of the late Ian Stewart. Stu formed the nucleus of The Rollin’ Stones with Brian Jones in the Spring of 1962. The Glimmer Twins of Jagger & Richards would soon join their R&B combo and the Stones career would begin rolling becoming legendary. 2012 is the British institution’s 50th anniversary and speculation is rampant that the gents have several surprises in store to share with their global fanbase later this year.

The Iridium Jazz Club, New York, June 30, 2012 setlist: Low Down Dog BluesUncle In HarlemWhat'd I SayMore Sympathy For The DrummerWomen Be Wise * Spinach * You Better Learn To Boogie Woogie * House Party Tonight Saint Louis BluesLet's Do The Boogie Woogie * Chicken Shack Boogie
