Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper & Friends | Del Monte Speakeasy | 2/16/14

Earlier this month, I read a great article on LA Weekly’s website about the resurgence of jazz music in Los Angeles. It was a terrific article that opened my eyes to new venues and music to keep an eye on in the Los Angeles area (I’m definitely going to check out The Piano Bar when the West Coast Get Down are playing and pick up a copy of Kamasi … Read More Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper & Friends | Del Monte Speakeasy | 2/16/14

Terrace Martin | 3ChordFold | Review

It’s been a while since I’ve heard a good concept album.

Click here to check out the other bands that I saw perform at Culture Collide 2013 I take music reviews with a grain of salt. I do my best to avoid reading them until I’ve already developed my own opinion about the music myself, but when trying to learn about music that I’ve never heard about before, it’s tough not to read an article … Read More Jacco Gardner | Culture Collide | 10/11/13

The Beach Ball Festival: Soul Revue | Santa Monica Pier | September 21, 2013

I LOVE soul music. I listen to all genres, but if I had to guess, I’d venture to guess that probably a third of my music collection (iTunes indicates that I have 19,452 songs that last 54.4 days) consists of soul tracks and about half of my vinyl collection consists of soul LPs. From Aretha Franklin to Amy Winehouse, Marvin Gaye to D’Angelo, I … Read More The Beach Ball Festival: Soul Revue | Santa Monica Pier | September 21, 2013

Every year, since 1999,  the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro holds a Lobster Festival where families can enjoy mouth watering, freshly cooked Lobster, in a carnival like setting, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Girl in a Coma | The Echoplex | September 12, 2013

Girl In A Coma. I love this band.
