Andy McKee is among the worldâ€™s finest acoustic guitarists, with a youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique.
ARTURO SANDOVAL Arturo Sandoval is considered to be one of the world’s foremost guardians of jazz trumpet and flugel horn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer. One of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, he has been seen by millions at the Oscars, at the Grammy Awards, and the Billboard Awards.
“Sandoval’s playing is spectacular.” THE NEW YORK TIMES “He’s one of the best.” DIZZY GILLESPIE

charles lloyd & THE MARVELS
The NEA JAZZ MASTER takes his celebrated band back on the road The critical consensus is that Charles Lloyd has never sounded better. The depth of his expression reflects a lifetime of experience. Lloyd has a legendary history in the music world. But looking back has never been of great interest to this tender warrior; â€œGo forward,â€? is his motto, as he keeps shifting to a higher, well calibrated gear. In 2015 he became a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master and was awarded an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music.
Lloyd is now accompanied by his extraordinary quartet, The Marvels, which includes: Greg Leisz - steel guitar | Reuben Rogers - electric bass | Eric Harland - drums | Bill Frisell - electric guitar

Dee Dee Bridgewater returns to her birth city to continue the musical exploration of her roots and influences
These were songs I listened to on the famous Black radio station WDIA, where my own father, Matthew Garrett, was a young on-air DJ with the moniker ‘Matt the Platter Cat.’ I was born in Memphis but my family migrated north to Flint, Michigan, when I was 3 years old. The South has always remained buried inside me, and coming back for this recording project has brought me full circle in my life.

THE DUSTBOWL REVIVAL
AWARDED BEST LIVE BAND IN L.A. BY L.A. WEEKLY! The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, timebending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal.
NEW ALBUM out NOW on Signature Sounds
Dustbowl just recorded their fourth studio album with GrammyÂŽ Award winning producer Ted Hutt, which was released on Signature Sounds. While the band launched with deeper bluegrass roots, they recently departed toward a more modern soul sound, still with their mixture of New Orleans swing, Americana, a little blues, and roots-rock.
“The timing, swing, and chemistry of these three virtuoso musicians is a joy to behold.” –Guitarist
Pianist Joey Alexander’s 2015 debut album for Motéma Music, My Favorite Things, garnered two Grammy® Award nominations for “Best Jazz Instrumental Album” and “Best Improvised Solo” making him the youngest jazz artist ever nominated for a Grammy. Wynton Marsalis says of Joey, “There has never been anyone that you can think of who could play like that at his age. I love everything about his playing – his rhythm, his confidence, his understanding of the music.”

“I titled this album Afro-Caribbean Mixtape
as a way of acknowledging the strong will of African people. We explore how these songs and rhythms that came from Africa got funneled through the Caribbean in places like Haiti, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, and traveled to the northernmost part of the Caribbean – New Orleans. Congo Square in New Orleans, the most well-known place Africans in the West practiced their rituals, was the genesis of Pop culture and music. This project celebrates how that essential thread of African Tribal DNA has continued to permeate global thought to this day.”
