    Big World Breaks

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 36 min

    It all began when the world-famous Seattle-based breaking crew, the Massive Monkees, invited Aaron Walker-Loud (Big World Breaks founder, drummer and director) to provide music at break dancing competitions and jams in the early 2000’s. Putting together a team for such events took a need for players with versatility, power and improvisation skills. Walker-Loud dug deep into the funk, soul, jazz and world music communities to build the right crew for the job; many of whom are alumni of the nationally acclaimed Seattle jazz programs at Garfield and Roosevelt High School. For this performance, Big World Breaks consists of Mikaela Romero (vocals & percussion), Darrius Willrich (keys and b.g. vocals), Ariel Loud, (alto sax), Naomi Siegel (trombone), Tobi Stone (flute & tenor sax), Daniel Rapport (guitar), Camilo Estrada (bass), Ival Galvez (percussion) and Aaron Walker-Loud (drums & M.D.). Big World Breaks now stands as a serious force to be reckoned with on stage and in the studio.

    Cory Henry

    Year: 2016

    Cory Henry takes a nostalgic journey back to his home church with The Revival, an ode to icons who have influenced modern music and a professional snapshot of Henry's discography. This live performance features the Hammond organ, Henry's first instrument, which has a rich history going back to the 1940s. Noting that it doesn't get as much recognition today, Cory Henry wants the audience to not only experience the organ from a gospel perspective, but also appreciate its vital contribution to diverse genres of music.

  • Live at Montreux

    Stuff

    Year: 1975

    Runtime: 1 hr 2 min

    Stuff, caught here in their only performance at Montreux, combined the talents of five amazing musicians: Cornell Dupree on guitar, Gordon Edwards on bass, Steve Gadd on drums, Eric Gale on guitar and Richard Tee on keyboards. Individually they were among the most sought after session players of their day but together as Stuff they had a magic all of their own, brilliantly captured on this program, which also features a guest appearance from vocalist Odetta on "Oh Happy Day" and specially written sleeve notes by Gordon Edwards and longtime fan of the band Chris Rea.

  • Live at Montreux

    David Sanborn

    Year: 1983

    Runtime: 1 hr 27 min

    David Sanborn has been a frequent visitor to the Montreux Jazz Festival, either headlining in his own right, as a sideman or as part of nineties "super group" Legends. This program focuses on his second headlining appearance in 1984 when he was touring in support of his "Straight To The Heart" album, which would see him win the second of his six Grammy Awards to date. The set combines tracks from that album with others from across his career. It features a special guest appearance by Rickie Lee Jones on piano and vocals on the track "Autumn Leaves". In 2008 David Sanborn released his 23rd album and his diverse career continues to thrive both on stage and in the studio.

  • Band In Seattle: Concert 112 A

    Cody Beebe & The Crooks

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 45 min

    Cody Beebe & The Crooks make rock music. Roots rock, if you want to be exact. It’s raw, it’s true, and every track is a slice of Americana. “Roots rock seems like the best term to encompass everything we’re doing,” says frontman and guitarist Cody Beebe. The band doesn’t stop with rock; they incorporate elements of blues, jazz, country, funk and soul to helm their distinctive sound. “We make Southern rock, but we’re from the Northwest,” Beebe jokes. It’s as if Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers updated their vibe and sprinkled it with pieces of Big Sky Country, Puget Sound, and Evergreen forests.

  • Band in Seattle: Live Debut - Concert 107 A

    Cracker Factory

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 40 min

    Many years ago, before the iPod and the topless espresso stand, three young men came together in a sonic experiment that would unlock the sacred mysteries of the planet and lay them bare upon the table. You can call the men of Cracker Factory a lot of things. Call them miscreants, heathen sorcerers, or scoundrels of the merriest variety. Just don't try to compare them to any band in existence. R.L. Heyer (lead guitar and vocals), Shane Smith (bass and backing vocals) and Denali Williams (drums) mingled their musical ministrations for the first time in a dusty bar in Cheney, WA and the rest is sweet history. There is not enough space here to tell all, but suffice it to say that R.L. is one of the most incredible guitar players you will ever hear, and the music of Cracker Factory will bring hours of joy to anyone who listens. .

  • Solos: The Jazz Sessions

    James Blood Ulmer

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 50 min

    James Blood Ulmer is one of the few guitarists to have forged a style based largely on the traditions of African-American vernacular music. Ulmer is an adherent of saxophonist/composer Ornette Coleman's vaguely defined Harmelodic theory and plays with a stuttering, vocalic attack; his jagged lines speak with the authority of a free jazz improviser and the accent of a soul-jazz tenor saxophonist. His solo guitar work is an expressive, hard-edged, loudly amplified hybrid. But Ulmer isn't limited in his musical scope. In these sessions, he reveals himself to be an instant inventor of repute on the flute and a memorable songwriter and blues singer.

    John Abercrombie

    Year: 2009

    Runtime: 48 min

    Guitarist John Abercrombie combines bop and free jazz stylistic elements with electronics utilizing phase shifters, guitar synthesizers and the good old volume pedal. What has kept his playing fresh is his refusal to be chained to these digital devices. As he told Down Beat writer Bill Milkowski, "I try to adjust my playing to the timbre and learn something about how to play that sound, yet at the same time I have to try and force the instrument to play with me a little bit. In other word, I sometimes try to overplay the instrument."

    Something In The Trees

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 41 min

    Matt (bass), Josh (vocals), and Larry (guitar) met while working at Experience Music Project in 2003. They quickly formed a bond and vowed to play music together someday, but the right project was a long time coming. In 2008, Adam (guitar) made his way to Seattle, and more musical connections were forged. Eric’s (drums) migration from New York in 2011 proved to be the perfect catalyst, and Something In The Trees was born. What began as an opportunity to hang out, enjoy mutual musical obsessions, and build some chops on their respective instruments became a torrent of creative synthesis and songwriting. Their eponymous first release is the result of this confluence.

  • Bowlive: Live at the Brooklyn Bowl

    Soulive

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 2 hr 12 min

    In March of 2010, the members of Soulive hauled their instruments through the doors of a newly-opened warehouse-turned-music venue in Brooklyn that they would call home for the next two weeks. Eric Krasno, Alan Evans and Neal Evans called on a multitude of their closest friends and musical conspirators to join them over the next fortnight - creating an incredibly broad guest lineup that included some of the pre-eminent guitar virtuosos of our generation (Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes), some of the biggest names in hip-hop (Questlove, Rahzel), and some of the most inventive improvisational players in modern rock n' roll (Robert Randolph, Marco Benevento, Oteil & Kofi Burbridge). The Brooklyn Bowl quickly became the mecca for these very distinct yet like-minded musicians, where they returned night after night, donning the dress code for good times (bowling shoes) and sharing famous Blue Ribbon fried chicken. The common thread that tied together all these disparate ingredients quickly became palpable -- from the transcendental heartfelt improvisations onstage to the homey & playful atmosphere provided by the bowling alley, the Soulive residency was like nothing that had come before it because all of those diverse elements fused to ultimately bring the Soul to Brooklyn Bowl.

    Andrew Hill

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 52 min

    The Jazz Sessions spotlights Andrew Hill, a great and even groundbreaking composer and pianist. While many of his contemporaries were totally jettisoning the rhythmic and harmonic techniques of bop and hard bop, Hill worked to extend their possibilities; his was a revolution from within. He exhibited a determined command of his materials, however abstract they might sometimes be. His composed melodies were labyrinthine, rhythmically and harmonically complex tunes that exhibit a sophistication born of mastery, not chance or contingency.

    Fysah & Vox Mod

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 22 min

    Self-described as the black baby of Amy Winehouse and Adele, Fysah’s voice is a delicate combination of soul, pop, and indie rock. Backed by a keyboardist raised in the gospel sounds of the church and a bassist steeped in funk and RNB, the final sound created is rich in emotion and personality.
    Abstraction is at the core of electronic musician Vox Mod’s creations. Every aspect of his performance is a study of who he is, not only as a musician, but as a designer and illustrator as well. His performances engage the senses of sight as well as sound, utilizing costumes and visual projections to heighten the submersion of the audience into his world of spirituality.

  • Band In Seattle: Jessica Lynne Concert 223

    Jessica Lynne

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 40 min

    Sometimes authentic country music artists do not grow up in what we would consider hotbeds of country music. Sometimes they grow up in Haslev, Denmark, the native town of current Seattle resident, Jessica Lynne, a sensational and rising country star and one of London Tone Music’s most successful artists. She explains how it all started: “When I was 12, I was home with the flu and our TV provider had a “chance channel” available for a limited time. Well, this time it was CMT and being at home with nothing to do and feeling really horrible, I just kind of left it on that channel and little by little just fell in love with the genre.” Faith Hill’s, Wild One, a song that was #1 at the time, inspired her immediately. “I felt like she was singing about me,” she remembers. “It touched my heart in a way that I had never felt before.”

    Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount is a sweetly trippy, magical musical trio led by dreamy flaxen-blonde vocalist/keyboardist Julia and flanked by her happily-raging rhythm section, Matt Deason (bass) and Dominic Cortese (drums).
    Julia and Matt and Dom share a deep passion for pho between playing their own private festivals - while also playing out at legendary Seattle venues like the Triple Door and the Showbox (along with the Tractor, Sunset, and Barboza) with similarly adept and inspired artists as Camille Bloom, Robb Benson, Red Jacket Mine, Carla Torgerson, Wayne Horvitz, the Hoot Hoots, the Great Um, and many others.

    Runtime: 34 min

    My Young creates a characterization of himself in every performance. He and his band mates make up a quartet of cerebral musicians whose sound is self-described as “mournful dance, new wave music”. Young’s rich vocals are suggestive of a Depeche Mode sound, but then it stands on a foundation of heavy synth, rough guitar, and pounding drum lines. Coupled with Young’s pointed lyrics, Jupe Jupe has discovered a whole new sound for their Pacific Northwest audience.
