Slick Rick 'The Ruler' - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
May 29, 2011 -

Richard Walters (born January 14, 1965), better known by stage names Slick Rick, MC Ricky D and The Ruler, is a rapper. Originally from South Wimbledon, London, England, he moved with his family to The Bronx in 1975 where he met B-Weezy who taught him how to rap.[citation needed] He has always credited "B" from St. Louis for his success with his career. Rick's characteristic eyepatch was acquired after being blinded in the right eye by broken glass as an infant. He is best known for a series of rap recordings during the 1980s, including "Children's Story" and "La Di Da Di". -Charlie Rock of Harlem World crew was instrumental in bringing Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh together when Doug requested an introduction after he had seen him win local MC battle contests. It was at an MC contest at the 369 Armory on 142nd street in Harlem, given by promotion partners Ray Chandler & Charlie Rock, that Rick & Doug were formally introduced by Rock. -As a 20-year-old in the summer of 1985 he scored his first big hits (with Doug E. Fresh), "La Di Da Di" and "The Show" and "All the Way Down" circa. 1986. -Slick Rick released the song "La Di Da Di" back in the early 1980s which features Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew. His first album The Great Adventures of Slick Rick was released in 1988 while he was living in New York City. "Children's Story", which appears on The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, is one of the most famous songs in rap and has been covered by Black Star, Black Rob, Everlast, Messy Marv, Tricky's side project Nearly God, UK rapper Ramson Badbones, Bj?rk, Nonpoint, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Japanese rapper Zeebra. "Children's Story" was also featured on the videogame Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on Playback FM, a classic hip-hop station. The album attained platinum status, but Rick was unable to exploit this due to an arrest for attempted murder. He shot a bystander and his cousin whom he'd hired as a body guard and who later admitted to having Walters shot outside a club in 1991. Russell Simmons, head of Def Jam records, bailed him out and Rick quickly recorded The Ruler's Back before spending five years in prison, two for the second degree attempted murder charges he received for that shooting, and three while hassling with Immigrations Services over his residency in the US. "La Di Da Di", "Mona Lisa" and "Children's Story" are among his best known songs, with "La Di Da Di" being covered nearly word-for-word by Snoop Dogg on his 1993 album Doggystyle, and lines from "La Di Da Di" being borrowed by multiple high profile artists. "Children's Story" was also sampled by Montell Jordan for his 1995 hit, "This Is How We Do It", and was also covered by Black Star on their debut album. A third album Behind Bars was recorded whilst still in prison, and released to lukewarm sales and reviews. Released from prison in 1998, he remained with Def Jam and on May 25, 1999 released a fourth album, entitled The Art of Storytelling, generally considered the authentic follow up to his 1988 debut. An artistically successful comeback that paired him with MC's like Nas, OutKast, Raekwon, and Snoop Dogg, among others. In June 2002, after performing on a Caribbean cruise ship, Rick was arrested by the then INS as he re-entered the United States through Florida. He was promptly told that he was being deported because he is a British citizen; since he had been born in London and moved to the States as a youth. In 1996, a law was passed which called for foreigners convicted of violent felonies to be deported, a ruling which was more vigorously enforced amid heightened security concerns after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Rick was continuously refused bail, but after 17 months in prison he was released on November 7, 2003. Rumors suggested that Rick planned to release a new album, "The Adventure Continues," in 2007. However, in a recent XXL Magazine interview, he denied the claim. Rick is supposedly "waiting for a market to open up for a [more] mature audience". In October 2006, the INS began a new attempt to deport Walters, moving the case from the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit based in New York to the more conservative Eleventh Circuit. The court is based in Atlanta, Georgia but the trial is expected to proceed in Florida, where INS agents originally arrested Walters. He is featured on Chamillionaire's debut single for Ultimate Victory called "Hip hop Police", and he makes a reference to his signature eye patch in his verse on the song.

McCoy Tyner Trio with special guest Savion Glover - Highline Ballroom
June 01, 2011 -

Jazz piano legend McCoy Tyner will be joined by his trio and special guest alto saxophonist Gary Bartz. As a youth, Tyner was catapulted into the spotlight for his role in the John Coltrane Quartet, and at the Highline Ballroom, he will effectively pass the torch to another young pianist, the up and coming New Orleans native Jon Batiste, who Tyner has invited to perform as the opening act with his band. At the young age of 22, Batiste's versatility, incredible musicianship and understanding of the music's history prove that the future of jazz is in good hands.

Patti Austin - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 02, 2011 -

She crosses all musical genres, has 16 solo albums to her credit, has performed her award nominated hit songs on the Grammys and Oscars -- and as a performer, songwriter and vocalist has a star-studded career that began at the age of four, making her one of the most beloved artists literally the world over. She is Patti Austin -- and this has been another very great year in the life of this extraordinarily talented artist. She debuted a one-woman show, which she wrote and created, was nominated for yet another Grammy Award for her spectacular recording in tribute to Ella Fitzgerald For Ella, recorded live with the WDR Big Band in Colon, Germany; and co-created the musical extravaganza Beboperella, a modern day music driven ritual, reuniting and fueling the return for the spirits of Bebop, along with the music of Ella Fitzgerald. In conjunction with these two Ella projects, Ms. Austin has been touring the world and was featured in a 60 Minutes Two profile by correspondent Charlie Rose. Austin, the daughter of a jazz trombonist and goddaughter of musical legends Quincy Jones and Dinah Washington, made her stage debut with Washington at the world-famous Apollo Theater in Harlem. During the 70's she was the undisputed "queen" of the New York jingle session scene. Her voice was heard on literally hundreds of commercials, behind everyone from Paul Simon, Cat Stevens and Joe Cocker to Bette Midler, Roberta Flack, Luther Vandross and Diana Ross. At the beginning of the 80's, Quincy Jones gave Patti exposure to a wider audience through her participation on his best-selling album Stuff Like That and the Grammy-winning classic The Dude. Her debut album for Quincy's Qwest label included the chart-topping hit "Baby Come To Me," a now classic duet with James Ingram. The pair reprised their success with the Oscar nominated "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?"

Larry Graham & Graham Central Station - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 03, 2011 -

Graham Central Station was a showcase for the revolutionary pop-and-slap bass guitar of Larry Graham, an alumnus of Sly & the Family Stone largely responsible for originating the percussive groove which typified the progressive funk sound of the 1970s. Born August 14, 1946 in Beaumont, TX, Graham was raised in Oakland, CA; by his teens he was adept not only on bass but also guitar, harmonica, and drums, and at the age of 15 began performing with the Dell Graham Trio, his mother's lounge act. While attending college, he served as a supporting musician with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Jackie Wilson, Jimmy Reed, and the Drifters; in 1968 he joined Sly & the Family Stone, appearing with the group during the halcyon period which gave rise to such classic albums as Stand! and There's a Riot Goin' On, as well as smash singles like "Dance to the Music" and "Everybody Is a Star," both of which prominently feature Graham's cavernous baritone in addition to his enormously influential thumping bass style.

The Creole Choir of Cuba - Brooklyn Academy of Music
June 04, 2011 -

A sensation at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival and a powerful symbol of resilience within the African diaspora, The Creole Choir of Cuba is an ensemble of unparalleled spiritual depth. Descendants of Haitian migrants who fled slavery to work in Cuba's sugarcane fields, the group's ten members and repertoire resurrect the half-heard voices and unsung songs lost to the official soundtrack of a nation. Soaring a capella arrangements of Haitian and Martinique merengues, mazurkas, and other styles—sung in Creole and girded by tight Afro-Caribbean percussion—coalesce in a thick, soul-bearing polyphony, evoking both the myriad places of migratory travel and that elusive thing called home.

Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 04, 2011 -

In the spring of 1975, Southside formed the Asbury Jukes with old friend Miami Steve Van Zandt (Little Steven), who later Joined Bruce's E Street Band. The late seventies saw the Jukes grow in stature from a highly competent R&B-styled bar band into a competitive horn-driven mainstream rock band with a series of original albums to their credit. For the uninitiated, a live Jukes gig can be an exhilarating, inspiring experience. They're the real thing, human, fallible, mean, moody and magnificent, capable on a good night of blowing the roof off.

The Energy - Highline Ballroom
June 04, 2011 -

Even for a group that has clocked thousands of miles and performed at hundreds of venues across the country, it's amazing that discovering a sound still proves to be the most significant challenge in a band's journey. So if there's anything that the Brooklyn based rock band The Energy has learned during the recording of their 4th album, Streets of In-Between (Produced by Scott Riebling: Fall Out Boy, We the Kings, The Academy Is), it's that at times the most succinct statement can be the most powerful. The message of the album is clear: when you take the road less traveled, your life becomes richer and more fulfilled. Love is a predominant theme on Streets of In-Between. From the conflicted and even paradoxical strains of the up-tempo single "Go To Girl," ("When we fight/That's when I see her smile"), to the hard rocking "Nothing That You Need," ("She's everything you want/And nothing that you need"), to the self-discovery that can result from true love, as expressed in "Touch Down," the album explores the many forms romance can take. And for the fans who dug the social awareness so present on the band's previous recordings, take heart: "Better Way" beckons the listener to shrug off the drudgery of the day-to-day in search of a higher cause. The song has already had an opportunity to shine during a politically-charged sequence on MTV's "Real World: Washington, DC", as well as underscoring a segment of MTV's "Cutthroat Challenge." Selling out many of New York City's and Boston's premier venues over the past two years, the band currently ranks among the top grossing indie acts in the Northeast. And yet despite touring with artists such as 3 Doors Down, Vertical Horizon, Ryan Cabrera and Eve 6, and having had music featured numerous times on both MTV and ESPN, the band chooses to keep it simple. "We've grown a tremendous amount," reflects Wolfsdorf. "It's hard to believe that just over five years ago we were struggling to get gigs in Brooklyn. We're very grateful for how far we've come and hungrier than ever to take it even further". The Energy recently appeared on Voice of America (VOA) "Border Crossings" program for some 100 million listeners, and shortly thereafter helped to host an episode of ESPN's "Inside the Big East." There is plenty more to come in 2011.
