SOPHIE MILMAN – IN THE...

  Few young vocalists have entered the jazz scene in this new century with the kind of acclaim received by the supremely talented Sophie Milman. Still in her 20s, she has now delivered her fourth album and first masterpiece, In The Moonlight.   Produced by Grammy winner Matt Pierson (JaneMonheit, Michael Franks, Joshua Redman, Kirk Whalum), this warm, witty, and altogether wonderful collection marks the first time Sophie has recorded in New York with an all-star supporting cast of jazz veterans and hot new stars, performing gorgeous arrangements for strings and larger ensembles.   With a rich, sensuous voice that puts a thoroughly modern spin on the legacy of immortals like June Christy and Carmen MacRae, Sophie Milman makes her mark not just as a singer of songs, but as a complete musician whose taste and sophistication set her alongside today’s very greatest singers.

THIEVERY CORPORATION –...

Get the full Thievery live show feeling without having to leave the comfort of your home. Their first ever live concert DVD is now available. In January of 2010, Thievery Corporation thrilled fans when they sold out 5 consecutive nights at local DC venue, 9:30 Club. The shows were filmed with vintage anamorphic lenses that created flaws and subtle characteristics (including creating flares as the light hits the lens), and have an otherworldly and abstract visual quality. The result is an intimate account of the band and a dazzling recording of one of the world’s most unique musical stage-shows.

ERIC CLAPTON & WYNTON...

New York City‟s premier jazz venue got the blues last April when Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton performed together in Rose Theater at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz At Lincoln Center for two sold-out shows dedicated to vintage blues. The extraordinary collaboration, billed as Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play The Blues, paired these musical virtuosos with members of the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra as they brought to life a repertoire of songs selected by Clapton and arranged by Marsalis. Reprise Records captures the magic of these unprecedented shows from earlier this year on CD, and as a CD/DVD combo, that both feature selections taken from the two public concerts (April 8-9), as well as special performance of Jazz At Lincoln Center‟s annual gala (April 7). The band nimbly navigated a diverse set list that touched on different styles, from the four-on-the-floor swing of Louis Armstrong‟s “Ice Cream” and ...

EMM GRYNER – NORTHERN...

In a career spanning over a decade and a half, Emm Gryner has amazed fans and critics alike with her daring forays into various genres and collaborations and for calling her own shots. The myriad of milestones achieved during the eight years since she was unceremoniously dumped by a major label mere months after releasing her sophomore album, Public, are proof that she excels in her chosen musical journey.   Gryner can name-drop a diverse roster of collaborators and admirers that includes everyone from Nelly Furtado and Lou Barlow to Rob Zombie and Def Leppard; the last repaid her for covering “Pour Some Sugar on Me” on 2001’s Girl Versions by inviting her to play piano on their own covers record,Yeah in 2006. In addition, Emm spent a year and a half as one of David Bowie’s hand-picked backup singers and one of Gryner’s many admirers is U2 front man Bono, who named ...
