With the Lee Morgan Story taking on new life this past week at Le Poisson Rouge, we’ve got some new insight into the project and a collection of great video and photos from the historic night that saw legendary trumpeter Wallace Roney take the stage in tribute to the late Lee Morgan. Originally brought to us by the dynamic duo of Ben Williams and John Robinson, the night also featured Marc Cary on keys, Justin Brown on drums, Leron Thomas on trumpet, and Raydar Ellis (DJ/Emcee).
Lee Morgan is remembered as one of the greatest trumpet players to ever grace the hallowed halls of jazz. In his short lifetime, he managed to record over 25 albums, several of which are still considered classics, and have influenced innumerable musicians to hit the scene since his death.
Music has been on Philip Dizack’s mind since he was just a kid. “When I was twelve, I just knew that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.” With his Truth Revolution Records debut, End of An Era, Dizack has brought together two amazing sets of musicians (Justin Brown, Sam Harris, Joe Saylor & Linda Oh, Kendrick Scott, Aaron Parks) to bring his concepts of life, love, and loss into perspective for our ears. The music is stunningly engaging, beautifully composed, and masterfully performed. Check out what Dizack had to say about the record and his thought process for the music.
Congrats to the winner and finalists of the Thelonious Monk Competition. Jamison Ross took first place in the competition which will bag him a $25,000 scholarship plus a recording contract with Concord Music Group. Second place went to Justin Brown and third to Colin Stranahan.
The web is on fire with Esperanza’s first single “Black Gold” from her upcoming release, Radio Music Society. Along with the single comes a thought-provoking music video that features a father picking his two sons up from school. After hearing they learned about Africa he questions the extent to which the teacher delved into the history of many of the oldest civilizations in the world.
