Shifting the narrative. In Sitka, Alaska, musician, and artist Nicholas Galanin creates music as Ya Tseen. Imbued in his new record, and across all of his creative output, is a conscious effort to shift the narrative away from painful histories of Indigenous peoples. "Indian Yard" humanizes Indigenous experience in the world in a society that has historically dehumanized us.
The “swing” of the merengue and the fusion of Jazz and Afro-Dominican rhythm. This album blends Dominican rhythm with contemporary Jazz Fusion by using the Pambiche rhythm unique only to the Dominican Republic. Pambiche is a music genre, which derives from the Merengue Tipico, a traditional style of Merengue.
Magnificent interpretation of a classic. After fantastic reviews of the album “The Thrill Of Loving You”, here is a brilliant edit of the lead single “The Thrill Is Gone”. Julia Werup’s interpretation is magnificent and her vocal performance is just outstanding.
A wake-up call. A brilliant single and video release. The singing, coordinated with the creative video is superb. The subtitles make it all the more interesting for people who do not speak the local language. Not only the sound but also the meaning is to be appreciated. Nature is calling for humanity to come together, to care for the creation we are all part of.
Authentic Jazz standards EP. “Jump for Joy” is a small collection that refused to die. Shelved for more than ten years - after Callie released her second Jazz standards album - this new release delivers a fresh and authentic perspective on five Jazz standards.
