Ten out of Tenn - Highline Ballroom
September 17, 2011 -

Ten Out of Tenn is a unique community of artists bravely forging their way through the difficulties of today's music industry. Similar to the folk movement of the sixties in New York, (including Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Young), this exciting group of young musicians are passionate about one thing above all else: creating authentic, soul-driven music, that has nothing to do with ego, and everything to do with making art for art's sake.

Similar to the infamous concert and film, The Last Waltz, which included The Band, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joe Cocker, Ronnie Wood and others, Ten Out of Tenn unites separate talents, and sparks the energy that has drained out of the music industry during these latter decades. Trent Dabbs says of The Last Waltz, "Watching [them] share the stage was so inspiring, I just remember thinking how fun it would be to do a show like that with all of the most talented artists and friends that I know." As the founder of TOT, Dabbs, along with the other artists, found a way to spotlight the individual music of each musician, while simultaneously bringing everyone together. Each member is a participant in the others' music.

TOT features a rotating group of artists who have collectively had well over one-hundred television song placements, as well as in film, and commercials. Taylor Swift included several of the artists on her celebrity playlist on iTunes, and members have shared the stage with Sarah McLachlan, R.E.M., Paul McCartney, John Mayer, and the Fray. These accomplishments are impressive, but it is when the TOT artists swap instruments on stage, gather around one mic, and improvise on their own and each other's songs that the magic really happens. Authenticity and creative passion cannot be faked. And if these artists are anything, it is at the utmost, sincere. It is easy to see why Rolling Stone magazine just named Nashville as the Best Music Scene in the country. With so much talent, and such a strong sense of community, it seems that anything is possible for TOT.

The present lineup includes: Trent Dabbs, Gabe Dixon, Andrew Belle, K.S. Rhoads, Katie Herzig, Matthew Perryman Jones, Tyler James, Butterfly Boucher and Jeremy Lister, who happened to be a runner-up on NBC's "Sing Off" with his a capella group, Street Corner Symphony. The personal accolades for each of these artists could fill pages and pages, but again, to them, this is not the important factor. In the award-winning documentary Any Day Now, highlighting the TOT touring experience, Matthew Perryman Jones says about the artists, "It's their life. It's what they're made for. They're wired that way." This is far from some label-created gimmick to strike it rich. This is what music was made for: sharing, story-telling, and inspiring.

Ten Out of Tenn's fourth collaborative record and sixth US tour are sure to spawn even more creative endeavors and a stronger sense of community for the artists, as well as stellar entertainment for all of their listeners. It is a revolution in the making, a refreshing effort of love, and a unique point of pride for Nashville's changing culture.

BASIA - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 17, 2011 - New York

Basia is emerging with her strongest work yet, It's That Girl Again, an album that brings her trademark global pop/jazz sound into today. From the first track "If Not Now Then When" --the bouncing melody, soaring horns, and the feeling that you've landed in a small fiesta--it's as though she has never been away. Basia and her collaborator Danny White have always drawn from timeless influences: the rhythms and styles of Latin music, the sound of classic American soul and R&B, and the polish of '50s and '60s jazz; yet the sound is undeniably fresh. There is nothing about this album that is stuck in the past, rather it presses forward, building upon their many accomplishments during the course of their career.

Poland-native Basia Trzetrzelewska was introduced as a vocalist with the group Matt Bianco and hits "Get Out of Your Lazy Bed," "More Than I Can Bear" and "Half A Minute." She and the group's main composer, keyboardist Danny White, departed to begin work on their debut, Time and Tide. The album was successful throughout Europe and Japan, but it took some adventurous D.J.s to import the album to a new radio audience stateside. The buzz led to Time and Tide's official US release and three Adult Contemporary hits there ("Promises," "New Day For You," "Time and Tide"). Basia proved unique, defying categories and appealing to a wide audience. This versatility earned her two consecutive number one Billboard Contemporary Jazz albums upon the release of the follow-up, London Warsaw New York, which topped that chart for most of 1990. A second tour full of sold-out marquees followed, pushed by the breakout success of the single "Cruising For Bruising," and resulting in a second platinum record.

A more vivid portrait of the artists emerged with 1994's The Sweetest Illusion as a more organic sound was developed, with a full band and a deeper variety of musical texture. Once again their appeal continued across genre lines as "Drunk On Love" became a #1 Billboard Club Play hit while The Sweetest Illusion rode the pop album chart. The resulting world tour culminated in a two-week run on Broadway, recorded for the live album Basia on Broadway.

Danny, along with guitarist/vocalist Mark Reilly, pulled Basia back into the fray to recast their early sound for the 2004 Matt Bianco album Matt's Mood. The collaboration combined pop, swing, Latin, lounge and spy-soundtrack sounds to great effect, and when on tour they were met with enthusiastic response from a loyal, dedicated fan base thrilled to see Basia back in action. The encouraging reaction gave birth to a fruitful creative period leading up to It's That Girl Again.

The songs on It's That Girl Again reprise Basia's global pop sound, fusing stick-in-your-head-for-days melodies with complex arrangements that don't overshadow the heartfelt lyrics or stunning instrumentation. Each song is a dedication to someone in Basia's life, though her narratives describe characters many can relate to. The musical backing is inspired and inventive, taking the listener to surprising places. "If Not Now Then When" is the perfect reintroduction to the Basia sound, with an irresistible melody, romantic lyrics and lively percussion. The honest confession of "A Gift" is set to a lilting melody framed by acoustic guitars, and "Someone for Everyone" sees Danny pulling out all the stops with piano, gospel-tinged organ and keyboard. "Everybody's On The Move" jets in with an upbeat rock feel while "There's A Tear" is a plaintive ballad recalling Stevie Wonder's 80s love songs.

Intensity reigns in the sharp tango of "Love Lies Bleeding" and within the stunning "I Must" as a measured verse surprisingly explodes into a chorus out of a Bond film chase scene. "Blame It On The Summer" is an ideal warm-weather chill-out track while the multilayered vocals of "Two Islands" give way to an island feel that counters the tender subject matter. The lighthearted "Winners" brings to mind the joy of Carnaval, and the smooth polish of "They Know Nothing About Us" highlights Basia's emphatic lyric. "Amelki ?miech" celebrates new life with a raucous party scene and buoyant heart that defies language, leading nicely into the evocative title track.

Joining Basia and Danny is a tight band of accomplished musicians including guitarist Peter White, trumpeter Kevin Robinson (Simply Red, Incognito) and drummer Marc Parnell (Joan Armatrading, Damian Rice).

In this age of highly processed and compressed vocals, It's That Girl Again reminds us what it's like to hear honest, straightforward singing with genuine feeling again. From the first strum of the guitar to the last cheer from the crowd, the album is a great showing from an established artist firmly planted in the here-and-now. Those long- frustrated by the current state of pop music are craving something original and real. Just in time comes Basia and It's That Girl Again.

Atys - Brooklyn Academy of Music
September 18, 2011 -

It was an event: in 1989, Jean-Baptiste Lully's shimmering opera Atys arrived at BAM. The mastermind was conductor William Christie, and the orchestra was early-music ensemble Les Arts Florissants, whose incisive production rekindled the ravishing power of French Baroque opera for both New York City and the world. Created in 1676 for King Louis XIV and derived from Ovid's poem Fasti, Atys is a breathtaking marriage of the royal court's dance- and chorus-filled spectacles to Ovid's tragic tale of love lost to a vengeful god. Now, in celebration of BAM's 150th anniversary, Lully's allegory-rich paean to the Sun King returns to BAM to make history once more.

Musical Performance & Dance: Aghany Nass (Songs of the People): Songs of the Eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea - Alwan for the Arts
Through September 18, 2011 - New York

The region to the East of the Mediterranean Sea, known as the Levant, features many distinct styles of Arab music, ranging from the classical muwashshah (based on medieval Andalusian musical and poetic forms), jebeli folk songs from the mountains, and popular song forms that emerged in the 1950s with the advent of cinema and mass media. The songs of these traditions are known and loved throughout the Arab world, and form an integral part of pan-Arab identity. For this concert, Mr. Moussa and friends will perform works composed by the Rahbani brothers, Sayyid Darwish, and anonymous composers, including songs made famous by singers such as Fairouz, Sabah, Wadi’ Al-Safi, and Sabah Fakhri, among others. The group will also perform some popular debkes, joined by a dance troupe under the leadership of master dancer and dance instructor, Ramzi Edlebi. This concert promises to be a fun, energy-packed event and audience participation is a must!

BIG DADDY KANE - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 19, 2011 - New York

On September 10th, 1968, Bed Stuy, Brooklyn gave birth to one of hip hop's most lyrical, diverse, innovative, and trendsetting MCs. He is known by many attributes - Dark Gable, Black Caesar, and King Asiatic Nobody's Equal - but he is known to the world as Big Daddy Kane. This baritone-voiced, stylishly dressed MC was the first one to bring the "playa" element to hip hop, and along with Bobby Brown and Michael Jordan, he put dark skin back on the map.

Kane was the first rapper to ever hold not one, but two sold-out shows at the world-famous Apollo Theater for women only. In the words of the late Big Pun, Kane is "not only a playa, he just crush a lot" - a reference to his rapid-fire, metaphoric battle rap style. Kane's influences are Muhammed Ali, Marvin Gaye, and his rap hero Grand Master Caz of the Cold Crush Brothers, but once dancers Scoob Lover and Scrap Lover join him on the stage, you can clearly see the James Brown and the Famous Flames influences as well.

With several Gold albums to his credit, Kane has enjoyed a long career, including the releases Long Live The Kane ("Ain't No Half Steppin'" and "Raw"), It's A Big Daddy Thing ("Smooth Operator," "Warm It Up, Kane," and "I Get The Job Done"), and Taste Of Chocolate ("Hard Being The Kane" and "All Of Me," a duet with the late legendary Barry White). As a powerful figure in the rap game, he has also collaborated with many artists, including Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Heavy D, Patti LaBelle, and Quincy Jones. All of these accomplishments combine with a Grammy Award to make Kane a true hip hop legend.

$5 21+ Between Ave. A & B Subway: F, V to 2nd Ave Between

http://www.khaledis.me/ http://www.lecairelounge.com/index2.html Khaled's music is the definition of East meets West. This unique style and sound, now dubbed Alternative World Fusion, brings together the music of cultures from the Middle East, the Mediterranean and the Americas. Khaled's latest album, "The Rabbit Hole", proves that Alternative World Fusion can be dark, sexy and Rock 'n Roll. "The Rabbit Hole" has been nominated for the Outstanding Album Award at the 2010 Hoboken Music Awards, and http://NJ.com named it one of Northern New Jersey's best albums of 2010 calling it, "...one of the most engaging and eclectic local releases of the year...the intricacy and passion of [Khaled's] guitar transcends language and culture and more than stands on its own...creating a freewheeling mix of love songs and instrumentals that truly earns the title 'world music.'"

KEB' MO' - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 20, 2011 - New York

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb' Mo's music is a living link to the seminal Delta blues that traveled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America--informing all of its musical roots - before evolving into a universally celebrated art form. Born Kevin Moore in South Los Angeles to parents originally from the deep South, he adopted his better known stage name when he was a young player who became inspired by the force of this essential African-American legacy. In the storied tradition of bluesmen before him including Muddy Waters - formerly McKinley Morganfield - and Taj Mahal, who began his days as Henry St. Clair Fredericks, Moore became known as Keb' Mo'. His acclaimed self-titled 1994 debut album introduced that now famous appellation to the world, and his latest album, 2006's Suitcase, brings it to new heights.

Mo's music is also a purely post-modern expression of the artistic and cultural journey that has transformed the blues, and his own point of view, over time. His distinctive sound embraces multiple eras and genres, including pop, rock folk and jazz, in which he is well-versed. In total, it owes as much to contemporary music's singer-songwriter movement, encompassing his longtime friends and collaborators Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne, as to the spirit of blues godfather Robert Johnson that dwells in his work. For Keb' Mo', the common bond between these influences is the underlying storytelling ethic, the power of song to convey human experience and emotional weight.

HIROSHIMA - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 21, 2011 - New York

Since galvanizing the instrumental music world with its unique East meets West approach in the late 70s, Hiroshima has always kept its eye on a distinctive One World philosophy which seamlessly blends Asian and North American culture to reflect both cultural and spiritual connections. This year marks 20 years since the band's unique combination of distinctively Japanese elements-June Kuramoto's classical flavored koto, Johnny Mori's booming taiko drum-with funky pop, urban and jazz sensibilities first hit the instrumental music charts, and 25 years since saxophonist and East L.A. native Dan Kuramoto, along with June, first formed the ensemble.

A Tribute To The Boss BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Birthday Bash Featuring THE BSTREET BAND - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 22, 2011 - New York

Almost legendary, The B-Street Band is billed as the world's longest running tribute band. Formed in Asbury Park, N.J. (where else?), in May 1980, and formerly known as Backstreets, it was one of the first bands to devote itself to covering the music of a living performer. The group has since performed from Maine to the Bahamas for well over 3 million people.

Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band have an incredible history and the bottom line is that even at 60 years old, Bruce is still as good or better an entertainer than anyone. And the B-Street Band plays it all, from "Greetings from Asbury Park" to "Working On A Dream."

The B-Street Band's success is a testament to their fans. By now, it's become a generational thing--fans who have followed them for decades now have kids who regularly come out to see them play.

The band has never tried to be a "clone act". They try to capture that vibe that you get from a Springsteen show that something magical can happen at any moment. Bottom line is that when you go to see the B-Street Band, you're basically guaranteed a fun night out!

Mahler's Resurrection Symphony - New York Philharmonic

JOHNNY WINTER - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 23, 2011 - New York

Johnny Winter will release his new studio album entitled "Roots" on September 27, 2011 via Megaforce Records.

Among the 11 tracks that together represent a veritable history of the Blues, are songs by the genre's elder statesmen including a version of Robert Johnson's 1936 recording "Dust My Broom." Winter pays respect to the greats who came to prominence in the late 1940s and `50s including Elmore James "Done Somebody Wrong," Bobby "Blue" Bland's "Further On Up The Road" and Chuck Berry's first hit single, "Maybellene." Also featured is "Come Back Baby," written by Walter Davis and made popular by Ray Charles, Jimmy Reed's 1961 hit, "Bright Lights, Big City," and Muddy Waters' version of "Got My Mojo Working." Brother Edgar guests on "Honky Tonk," the one instrumental featured on Roots. Rounding out the collection are Little Walter's "Last Night," Larry Williams' "Short Fat Fannie" and T-Bone Walker's "T-Bone Shuffle." This special project was directed by renowned guitarist Paul Nelson who's role is as both producer and performer on this recording.

SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY & THE ASBURY JUKES - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
September 24, 2011 - New York

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.

Celtic Thunder - Beacon Theatre
September 24, 2011 - New York

A show rather than a group, Celtic Thunder was conceived by Sharon Browne and written and arranged by Phil Coulter and designed as a contemporary exploration of Celtic music, which means it falls to the pop-dance side of the spectrum more than it does to the traditional side. The show was staged, recorded, and filmed in Dublin in August of 2007 and featured five male vocalists, Damian McGinty (only 14 years old when the show was recorded), Keith Harkin, Paul Byrom, Ryan Kelly, and George Donaldson, rotating leads through a set of traditional and contemporary songs, several of them written by Coulter. A CD and DVD of the event appeared from Decca in 2008. The quintet's 2009 sophomore effort, Take Me Home, was stocked with traditional Irish and Scottish ballads peppered with a handful of pop/rock covers, while 2010's It's Entertainment relied exclusively on commercial pop hits. Celtic Thunder returned to their roots for 2011's Heritage, a meld of new and traditional material. Paul Byrom left before the album was complete, having recorded numerous tracks for the set before leaving; he was replaced by Emmet Cahill, although both men appear on the recording.

Awakening: A Musical Meditation on the Anniversary of 9/11 - Brooklyn Academy of Music
Through September 24, 2011 -

Pioneering contemporary music ensemble Kronos Quartet (More Than Four, 2007 Next Wave) returns to BAM with a heartfelt program comprising 12 compositions—including works by Michael Gordon, Terry Riley, Osvaldo Golijov and Gustavo Santaolalla, and John Oswald—plus gripping arrangements of traditional songs from around the globe. This stirring collection of works reflects upon those instances where traditional language fails us, and music steps in to restore what violinist David Harrington refers to as "equilibrium in the midst of imbalance."

The Metropolitan Room welcomes jazz singer Kelley Suttenfield this fall on four consecutive Mondays at 7pm: 9/19, 9/26/ 10/3 and 10/10, in a series called “Mondays with the Masters.” Each Monday, Suttenfield will pair her offbeat, jazz-storytelling style with a different guitar master, including Howard Alden on 10/10. The complete lineup is below. Suttenfield released her debut CD, "Where is Love?" in 2009. "Here’s a singer with a lot of great ideas, and the ability to deliver them. It’s her debut disc, and the closest thing I can compare it to is Madeleine Peyroux’s debut Dreamland, way back when. It’s got the same feel...Give me more!" George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly. Suttenfield, New York based with Southern roots, is known internationally for her unusual spin on American music, the Beatles, Brazilian and beyond. She expanded her fan base recently to London, where she debuted at Ronnie Scott's in January 2011. The guitarist lineup is strong and eclectic: Joe Carbone (9/19): Carbone is known as a singers' accompanist, he counts Sammy Davis Jr., Frankie Laine and 60's idol Bobby Rydell among his favorite gigs; Tony Romano (9/26): prolific NYC player who has toured worldwide and played with many Latin, Jazz and Pop artists including Stanley Jordan and Randy Brecker: Vic Juris (10/3): Vic has traveled far and wide with the likes of Jimmy Smith, Sarah Vaughan, Chico Hamilton, Dave Liebman, Richie Cole and Mel Torme, to name only a few greats; and Howard Alden (10/10): Alden needs little intro, but has been described as "may be the best of his generation" by JazzTimes. Bassist Matt Aronoff, whose credits include gigs with Luciana Souza at the Kennedy Center and Birdland with Peter Eldridge, joins every Monday every Monday.

Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies - American Museum of Natural History
Through June 24, 2012 -

Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies, an exhibition of more than 20 sets of striking large-format prints, showcases advanced imaging technologies used by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and reveals once-hidden, intricate details of both natural phenomena and cultural artifacts. The exhibition features images that were created in pursuit of scientific knowledge but also resulted in visually arresting art. It explores how such imaging technologies -- including infrared photography, scanning electron microscopy, and computed tomography (CT) -- make it possible to examine and analyze a range of specimens at levels of detail previously unimaginable, advancing science and providing new insights into the visual splendor of the universe.
