Lavishly Fun Camaraderie with Peter Apfelbaum’s New York Hieroglyphics at the Stone

Source: New York Music Daily

Sunday night Peter Apfelbaum wrapped up a weeklong stand at the Stone with a sprawling, serpentine, unselfconsciously joyous (and surprisingly tight) performance by his long-running large ensemble the New York Hieroglyphics. It’s a fair guess that crowds outside of New York would pay obscenely to see such a pantheonic lineup, which also comprised trumpeter Steven Bernstein, trombonists Josh Roseman and Natalie Cressman, violinist Charlie Burnham. guitarist Will Bernard, tenor saxophonist Tony Jones, multi-reedman Norbert Stachel, bassist Brad Jones, drummer JT Lewis and singer Abdoulaye Diabate.

They played with the cameraderie of a group that’s existed, if on and off and ...

Photo Recap: A Deadhead Revival for Dead And Company at BB&T Pavilion

Dead & Company | Photo by Sydney Schaefer for WXPN | sydneyschaeferphotos.com

Grateful Dead fans, otherwise known as Deadheads, and John Mayer fans alike, gathered from all over the tristate area last night as Dead & Company headlined a completely sold out show at Camden’s BB&T Pavilion. The entire venue was a sea of tie dye and covered in a haze of smoke as the crowd was taken back to the psychedelic time of the 1970s – when the Grateful Dead (the Dead) were in their prime.

Dead & Company did everything last night just as they did back then – in ...

Revisiting the Summer of Love: Upcoming Concerts That Celebrate the Spirit of 1967

It’s been 50 years since 1967 and the “Summer of Love” – a moment in history where peace, love, and freedom inspired positive grassroots change. You could even argue that one could split the 20th century into two eras: before 1967 and after 1967, the latter indicating the beginning of the sexual revolution, women’s rights movement, and aftermath of the civil rights movement. The 60’s didn’t really become the 60’s until 1967.

Experimental music flourished during this period, with “flower power” psychedelia in full swing. Iconic albums like The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts ...

First-Class Original Bluegrass and a Lower East Side Gig From Cricket Tell the Weather

Source: New York Music Daily

Cricket Tell the Weather have pretty much everything you could possibly want from a bluegrass band: inspiring instrumental chops, vivid storytelling and a dynamic range that runs the gamut from ecstatic to mournful. What distinguishes them from the legions of cover bands and pop musicians posing as Americana pickers is frontwoman/fiddler Andrea Asprelli’s songwriting. She’s informed by tradition but not reverent. Her songs are homespun but not sentimental, and she loves historical references. She and the band have a 10 PM gig on March 21 at the scruffy downstairs third-stage room at the Rockwood; cover is $10.

Their latest album, Tell ...

Eight-String Guitarist Charlie Hunter Brings His Irrepressibly Fun Band to the Rockwood

Source: New York Music Daily

Guitarists who don’t waste notes are a rare breed. They’re even rarer in the world of jambands and summer tours, which is where Charlie Hunter made his mark. As you would expect from a guy who tacked on a couple of extra strings to bolster the low end of his six-string model, groove is his thing. In doing so, he invented his own style of music, equal parts jazz, reggae, funk and vintage soul. And he can be hilarious. His latest excellent, characteristically eclectic album Everybody Has a Plan Until They Get Punched is streaming at Spotify. Hunter and his ...

First-Class Tunesmithing from Pastoral Jazz Guitar Great Cameron Mizell

Source: New York Music Daily

Cameron Mizell is the great pastoral jazz guitarist not named Bill Frisell. Like Frisell, he has a laser sense for a catchy hook, a spacious approach to melody, a fondness for the unconventional and a flair for the lurid that occasionally bares its fangs from deep in the shadows. Mizell’s latest album Negative Space – streaming at Destiny Records – is a trio effort with multi-keyboardist Brad Whiteley and drummer Kenneth Salters. Mizell is playing the small room at the Rockwood on March 13 at 7 PM.

The album’s opening miniature sets the stage, a brief, resonant Frisell-style tone ...
