Victor Haskins & Lonnie Liston-Smith: Invitation

When I write of often try to steer clear of clichés but I must invoke one here if you will allow. This video from Richmond based trumpeter/cornetist Victor Haskins collaborating with the legendary Lonnie Liston-Smith on piano is beyond what the doctor ordered for me today. The weather here in VA is as lovely as this rendition of the Bronislau Kaper classic. Makes for the perfect soundtrack for this season. A special nod to Matt Hall and Tony Martucci for painting with such lovely colors here as they round out the ensemble on bass and drums respectively.

"Invitation" is the first of three videos that will be released in the exclusive series.

Can't wait to see what's up next. As is customary around these parts make sure to share this with your friends, colleagues, etc., and spread the word about the great music that's happening right now in 2014.

Jarrard Anthony - Ready To Live (Recommendation)

The third outing from Richmond, VA based and internationally known artist Jarrad Anthony Ready To Live brings to mind all the melodic and lyrical vibrancy associated with the first wave singer-songwriter school, embodied by the likes of Taylor, Mitchell, Morrison et al.

Storytelling at its finest, Ready To Live presents characters with character and depth, all who share the common thread of forward motion no matter the obstacles that they may endure: which, even includes the space time continuum of "Never See Her Again". Love may be at the center of it all here but make no mistake this set of music is not a "Moon, June, Spoon" ode to that emotion. No, Jarrad Anthony deals with the complexity of the emotion that more often than not is the catalyst for the creation of life both new and reborn.Read more
