@deathofselfvevo kicked off the night for the UGLYBoNES release show at Galaxiw 2.0. It was great to meet you guys and I hope we get to work together in the future! Check them out at the House of Blues Aug 31st or at The Forge Sept 7th, they'll be opening for Antiflag! I loved the CD I picked up, the interview at the end of the record was a nice touch. Best of luck, gentlemen! #supportlocalmusic #diymusic #chicagomusicscene #hardcorepunk #deathofself

In a way, Louis Hayes has been honoring his old boss, Horace Silver, every time he takes his place behind the drums. But on his recent, overdue Blue Note debut, Serenade for Horace, Hayes pays explicit tribute to the late hard bop inventor through the classics they performed together in Silver’s celebrated quintet. Hayes has plenty of energy to burn at age 80, and he remains a model of driving power without the pyrotechnics and soloing appetite of some bashers. It goes without saying, you’re going to want to catch his band at the #chicagojazzfestival! August 31st at 6:30 on the big stage, and it’s FREE!

One of my biggest inspirations in music has been Mr #royayers he has been very instrumental in the soulful and house sound behind the music I make beside the influence from Stevie, Earth Wind and Fire. I’ve learned so much from being an attentive listener of his use of jazz chords and modulations throughout many of his songs. I’m overwhelmed and grateful to meet one of the dopest songwriters of all time. #graceburagemusic #networkingqueen #gamechanger #chicagomusicscene #graceburageproducer

From @chicagojazzfestival -  A native of Sam Paolo, Brazil, tenor saxophonist Ivo Perelman is perhaps best known in the states for his many recordings with Delaware-born pianist Matthew Shipp. Their fearless, free-improvising duo is regarded by some as the greatest such pairing currently at work. They will be joined by bassist William Parker and drummer Bobby Kapp, and it’s seriously going to be some great music. Come out to the #chicagojazzfestival on September 1st at 1:50 to catch this quartet!

But everyone started as a beginner. Allow yourself to make mistakes and try again. You don’t have to be successful the minute you start, you aren’t behind, you are right where you need to be. Work hard and be kind. Have a good weekend everyone! 🕶✨👏🏼

From @chicagojazzfestival -  This veteran Chicago band, led by prolific bassist Chuck Webb and featuring singer Margaret Murphy-Webb, is what you might call double jointed. As demonstrated on the album, No Smoke No Mirrors, it is equally home with the seminal progressive jazz of Sam Rivers and Chick Corea and the deep soul and R&B of Stevie Wonder and James Brown. We’ve got some great music going down at 1:30 on September 1st, this band will be sure to impress! #chicagojazzfestival

MY ARETHA FRANKLIN TRUE STORY: 
My former record company, MCA (Universal) had wanted me to think about remaking a cover for my 1st album. Aretha Franklin’s, “Ain’t No Way,” would be my bold choice. ☕

Admittedly, I felt ultra nervous knowing I would be recording one of her classics. Becauseof my jitters, I broke with tradition, allowing noone to be at recording studio with me while cutting leads for this song, not even the producer of track.☕ On a late night session in Brooklyn --with candles burning, shoes kicked off and only the engineer there to take my vocal order; in the starkness of a dimly lit recording booth, I stood behind a lone mic daring to take the vocal plunge.☕ It took me a couple of runs but the engineer was mad cool, cheering me on as I worked out my creative. Finally, I got what I thought to be a good reference vocal=(demo). My plans were to go back & lay it down ‘for real’ after I got all the instruments and backing vocals tracked. For me, it was just a temporary guide for the lead track. But it turned out my record co. loved it & sold me on NOT rerecording vocals over again. So that session actually became the final version released. ☕

Best part of story--before release of my record, while hanging out at team MCA--one of my record co. folks called me into their office, saying they had a surprise. They said,

😢 MY ARETHA FRANKLIN TRUE STORY: My former record company, MCA (Universal) had wanted me to think about remaking a cover for my 1st album. Aretha Franklin’s, “Ain’t No Way,” would be my bold choice. ☕ Admittedly, I felt ultra nervous knowing I would be recording one of her classics.

They said, "say hello" to the person on other end of the phone. As I did, a warm voice said hi. Yep, it was Queen Aretha herself! Though only a brief convo, it was one that blessed my heart for all eternity. Queen Aretha, both congratulated me on being a new solo artist & gave me her thumbs up for doing a good job on my rendition & arrangement of her song.🙌☕ As chocolate brown as I am, that compliment caused me to feel beet red in the face special, with a smile flash-frozen across my cheeks for weeks after😱 My song went on to chart on Billboard Top 100! YAY😀 ☕ Though I realize we all will leave here someday, never once did I ever think when I recorded “Ain’t No Way,” that I would someday be writing the words I reflectively pen now. Truly, grateful for having had the opportunity to record one of Aretha Franklin's classics. Tears😢💔
