Red Bull Music Academy presents New York City to the SF Bay: JAZZ January 25th at Yoshi’s.
The GARY BARTZ Project
with featured guests
BILAL & ALOE BLACC
Jill Newman Productions
Grammy Award winning jazz saxophonist Gary Bartz began making waves on the jazz scene during its prime in New York City and never slowed down. Mr. Bartz was formally trained at Julliard; however, it’s the time alongside jazz greats like Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and McCoy Tyner that has placed him as a legend in the game. R&B icon, Bilal, serves as featured vocalist for the Gary Bartz Project, and for this special night only, soul sensation and 2006 RBMA Participant, Aloe Blacc, will join them on stage.
Evidence is that dude. Many heads point to 2007's Weatherman as one of hip-hop's recent treasures. That first solo project, with production from Sid Roams, The Alchemist, Jake One, Babu & Ev (all of whom are back on this one, save Jake One), had a refreshingly crisp sonic blueprint, heavy on the spacy synths and brimming with soul. Having now made a switch from the lost-at-sea ABB to Rhymesayers with a Layover (EP) in between, everything is back in order for the dilated one to drop another top-drawer record.
With it’s facinating 20th century history and and 21st century reputation as a serious party destination, pretty much every week in Berlin is music week. But Berlin Music Week raises the stakes higher, with dozens of events popping off between now and the weekend. The biggest is undoubtedly Berlin Festival, which crashes the massive Templehoff airport (the site of the infamous Berlin Airlift) this Friday and Saturday evening before moving to Arena Club in nearby Kreuzberg for the sort of all-night party the city is legendary for.
