Nneka & Chiliscote

Nneka is one of the most badass artists of substance on the global circuit who sings and stumps about topics of substance. And not only topics associated with the plight of her own native home of Lagos, Nigeria. She gets the big picture, the global interconnectedness of it all. A modern day female Bob Marley, Nneka is a true indie spirit with that "it" thing who has collaborated with a great many established artists such as Ziggy and Damian Marley as well as many presently more obscure artists such as the rapper known as Chiliscote of Germany in the videos below.

Who is Esperanza Spalding?

She is not new. She has worked many years in full groove mode. But for those who have missed out on Esperanza Spalding so far, now is the time. Esperanza Spalding has delivered a fresh approach to real jazz, not smooth jazz, but the real thing! And she can and does break style and genre boundaries as if they do not exist.

As a bassist myself, I dig anyone who can sing and play bass simultaneously. But Esperanza is no ordinary singer or bassist. She takes it all to new levels. She is remarkable beyond any word. She is kind and genuine, which makes her all the more desirable to listen to. GC

This particular episode of Austin City Limits featuring Esperanza Spalding is a great show to watch, for this is Esperanza captured beautifully, playing live and showing what she can really do and who she really is.

Trixie Whitley - Breathe You In My Dreams (Music Video)

Saw Trixie Whitley at The Satellite in Silverlake California on December 1, 2012. The show was amazing. She's a great minimalist who avoided pomp & circumstance, opting for authenticism that runs deep in her cells. Trixie delivered up music with her sensitive grace and style, with soul so deep.

She thanked the audience several times and meant it, for one could hear a pin drop as the venue fell silent between songs. Quite rare in LA, as all eyes were on Trixie and her every move and word. Near the end, Daniel Lanois stepped in to play along.  It was one of the most memorable intimate shows of 2012.

This song below by Trixie is so excellent, it stayed on repeat for too many plays to count. It seems to have some ethereal commentary attached when heard with the video by Anton Coene, which is a nice work of photographic art that seems to touch on the controversial subject of geoengineering. GC
