Gem of the Week – Trombone Shorty

My pleasure to present the electrifying Trombone Shorty. From the trombone to the microphone @Tromboneshorty lays the funk down so you feel it in your bones. Give your ears a treat and rock to a jazzy-soulful beat.



Here’s my 2 cents…

Soulful Jazzy Mix with Angela Ricci

Angela Ricci brings soulful blues mixed with jazz fused into warm sweet harmonies to relax and intrigue listeners. From the track “Isn’t It Funny”, vivid lyrical imagery “At the end of this rainbow I’ll find my gold. So you can keep your money. I’ll keep my soul.” shows Angela’s ethical standards to not compromising integrity over fortune. What could be some consequences/results when you take money to sell your soul?

Versuchsanordnung Makes Your Ears See

Versuchsanordnung Makes Your Ears See


Versuchsanordnung (translated from German as “experimental arrangement”) paints visual textures with sound. The group (Christian Barthold on electric guitar, Christoph Uhlhaas on piano, Markus Blatzheim on bass and Martin Schubert on drums) eloquently describes their unique sound as Film Nior. If you could put together a “Fantasy Experimental Band” of anyone from the past or present, who would you pick and describe the sound?

“Everybody’s a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We’re all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos.” ~David Cronenberg
