Kelly WillIs & Bruce Robison

When is the sum of the parts of a musical quantity far greater than the whole? When it’s Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison, now fully united as an ongoing musical act. Willis is the alluring voice and songwriting talent who pioneered both Americana and the Texas young country scene with her 1990 debut Well-Travelled Love, and her breakthrough hit album What I Deserve hailed by TIME Magazine as “the smartest, most consistently worthwhile country CD” to have been released that year. Willis has proven how she can do it all from contemporary to traditional and beyond with finesse, smarts and irresistible charm.

Songwriter and performer Bruce Robison has made his biggest mark on the musical world writing indelible smash #1 hits like “Wrapped” (George Strait), “Angry All The Time” (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill) and “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks) while releasing a series of eight albums rich with his laconic yet potent grace and emotional dead aim as a writer and singer. Joined at the heart since they married in 1996, they now meld their talents and muses here in 2011 to create the sure promise of even greater and more wonderful things to come, and offer listeners eternally resonant modern yet rooted country music to be savored and treasured like a bond of true and abiding love.

badi assad

One of the most exciting Brazilian artists of this generation, the talent of Badi Assad (Bah-Jee Ah-Sahj) seems to know no bounds. The extraordinary singer, guitarist, and percussionist has successfully forged an exhilarating genre of music – a blend of jazz and worldbeat that melds traditional styles of her native Brazilian music with an exotic mixture of ethnic sounds from around the world. With a Bobby McFerrin-like versatility to her voice and musical heritage that covers the breadth of Brazilian musical styles, The Los Angeles Times raved ‘Assad redefines solo guitar performance. Revelatory, a brilliant display of innovation, imagination and skill…almost hypnotically compelling.” Assad’s 1996 Rhythms was singled out as one of the most important recordings of the year, garnering a "Best Classical Guitar Album" from Guitar Player and "Best Classical/Fingerstyle Guitarist" from Acoustic Guitar. She joined jazz guitar legends Larry Coryell and John Abercrombie for the critically acclaimed Three Guitars album in 2003, and her Wonderland was selected among the 100 best CDs by the BBC.

fourplay

According to some very basic laws of nature, when powerful forces come together, some form of energy is created – usually in large amounts. In music, the laws of interaction are no different. When keyboardist Bob James, guitarist Chuck Loeb, drummer Harvey Mason and bassist Nathan East come together as Fourplay, the result is extraordinary jazz.  For two decades, this contemporary jazz quartet has enjoyed both artistic and commercial success by grafting elements of R&B, pop and a variety of other sounds to their unwavering jazz foundations. In the course of a dozen recordings – six of which have climbed to the top of Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Album charts – the supergroup has continued to explore the limitless dimensions and permutations of jazz while at the same time appealing to a broad mainstream audience.

leon redbone

One of the more distinct and recognizable characters in popular music, guitarist Leon Redbone with his gravelly baritone and signature fedora hat, shades, and mustache brings a cool mystique to his original folk-jazz mix, reminiscent of vaudevillian ragtime. His work, a revival of pre-World War II ragtime, jazz, and blues recalls the work of performers ranging from Jelly Roll Morton and Bing Crosby to blackface star Emmett Miller. Redbone made his recording debut in 1976 with On the Track, which featured legendary jazz violinist Joe Venuti as well as singer/songwriter Don McLean; his 1977 follow-up Double Time reached the Billboard Top 40, largely on the strength of his frequent appearances on television's Saturday Night Live. He has collaborated with Ringo Starr and Merle Haggard, and such jazz luminaries as guitarist Frank Vignola, reedman Ken Peplowski, and bassist Jay Leonhart. Despite his low profile, Redbone has also earned a certain measure of fame as a fixture in television and movies including:  performing the title tunes for sitcoms Mr. Belvedere and Harry and the Hendersons, as a snowman in the Will Ferrell movie Elf, and as the voice of the homespun beer jingle “This Bud's for You” and the Chevrolet ad jingle “Getting to know you”.

huun huur tu

“A musical marvel.”—New York Times

Using traditional instruments and drawing subtly on 20th-century composers, funky rhythms, and the palette of electronica, the Tuvan acoustic quartet Huun Huur Tu (HHT) transform ancient songs into complex acoustic compositions. From the independent republic of Tuva, bordering Mongolia, HHT perform an ear-twisting vocal technique called Khöömei – Tuvan throat singing. In this style, a single vocalist produces two or three notes simultaneously, often a low drone along with a high-pitched whistle. Accompanied by traditional string and percussion instruments, the four-member ensemble sings rhythmic songs that capture the magic of the Siberian steppe. The group began touring in the West 17 years ago and have spent decades innovating indigenous Tuvan music under the subtle influence of the music of 20th and 21st centuries – the result is both contemporary music that belongs to the whole world and a fresh take on the traditional music of Tuva. Since the group's inception, HHT has collaborated with musicians from many genres, such as Frank Zappa, Johnny Watson, the Kodo drummers, The Moscow Art Trio, the Kronos Quartet and The Chieftains. Their most recent recording Eternal is a collaborative effort with electronic musician/producer, Carmen Rizzo and accomplished film score composer Mark Governor. In January 2010, group Hazmat Modine also announced plans to record with Huun Huur Tu again. Huun Huur Tu was nominated for a 2008 BBC World Music Award.

poncho Sanchez Latin jazz band

If music were about pictures, percussionist Poncho Sanchez’s music would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show, on any given record, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling. Sanchez is considered one of the best Latin Jazz musicians performing today – his ensemble injects head-nodding and feet-shuffling energies into the spheres, especially in a live concert. Sanchez also conveys all of these sounds – and more – on his latest release, Psychedelic Blues.

stanley jordan

Celebrated guitar virtuoso and three time Grammy nominee Stanley Jordan has been called one of the “slickest jazz guitarists around”. His development of the tapping technique for guitar (which allows the guitarist to play melody and chords simultaneously, like a piano) has made him legendary in jazz circles. He has consistently shown himself to be a musical visionary from the moment he electrified listeners with 1985's gold record Magic Touch to today with his latest album, State Of Nature. Jordan's first major release in over a decade, State Of Nature shines with Jordan’s pioneering techniques, including simultaneous playing of both guitar and piano. His writing and playing express and embrace evolution, talent and change – his own and that of the world around him. Critics say, “His music is striking, stylish, and commanding. His synthesis of various styles ensures that his reflection on the ways of life will resound with fans of all different types of music, making State of Nature an extraordinary work of great power and possibility.”

sinbad

Popular comedian and actor Sinbad entertains audiences with his unique and hilarious ‘hit ‘em in the face’ style of comedy. Sinbad never tells jokes--”I don’t know any,” he admits--but rather stalks the stage, telling real-life stories. He doesn’t deliver payoff lines; he slam-dunks them. His comedy is large, physical, and impetuous. He pokes holes in our lifestyles, and his stories mirror our foibles. He doesn’t write his material; he relives it as he remembers it. Sinbad has appeared on the FX Television series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”  Also, his long awaited stand-up special aired on Comedy Central this past February and most recently, Sinbad was seen in the third season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.

jerry jeff walker

Outlaw country pioneer Jerry Jeff Walker is most noted for his hit, “Mr. Bojangles,” but it was his smooth voice and vibrant country songs that earned him a large and loyal following. Artists like Neil Diamond, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan and Sammy Davis Jr. have all covered his songs. Walker became, along with Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel, one of the arbiters of the internationally famous “Austin Music Scene.” Since then, he has celebrated the music of peers such as Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and served as a fountainhead and inspiration to younger musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Jack Ingram and Garth Brooks. But even with all that, Walker still sees the world with a troubadour’s eyes. His songs are the way he makes the world make sense, how he passes on stories of the people he meets, the way he feels on a given morning. He has come full circle, back to his singer-songwriter roots.

Inarguably one of the greatest living guitarists in the world and one of the great heroes of modern flamenco, Paco de Lucía is credited with creating a ‘fusion’ style flamenco influenced by jazz – stretching and embellishing flamenco’s strict structure but remaining faithful to the soul of its roots.

De Lucía’s compositional genius and the pure intimacy of his dazzling guitar virtuosity make a deeply authentic and universal statement that transcends the folkloric. With mesmerizing cascades of high velocity notes, de Lucía’s performances offer superb playing, dancing and singing and have been called ‘flamenco fireworks’.

Madeleine Peyroux

The smoky-voiced songstress Madeleine Peyroux is known to her fans for intimately arranged covers of the early American blues and jazz repertoire – one who’s achieved critical notice and sales success with her signature “postmodernist coolness” (LA Times).  Peyroux began as a teenage busker, honing her vocal and guitar skills on the famously quaint, acoustic streets of Europe, where she molded her style on the cornerstones of jazz: Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong. She is most known for her 2004 album Careless Love – a major breakthrough which reached Gold status in the US, selling over two million copies worldwide and landing on numerous top-of-the-year lists. Known as a gifted interpreter of material from the jazz canon to Bob Dylan, her 2006 recording Half the Perfect World garnered the musician her highest ever chart position and sales weeks. With her 2009 album Bare Bones, Peyroux found her voice as a songwriter – The New York Times noted that Peyroux "has branched out to refine an enigmatic, low-key personal style that is all her own." She is set to let that style shine once again in her latest album, Standing on the Rooftop, due out in June 2011.
