Andy McKee is among the world’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

• 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient • 10-time Grammy� Award Winner • Emmy Award Recipient • 6 Time Billboard Award Winner • 2015 Hispanic Heritage Award Recipient


“Big Sam is the

top man on the slide trombone in the

birthplace of jazz.” - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE NOLADELIC POWERFUNK.

That's the sound Big Sam's Funky Nation have been whipping up for more than a decade. It's high-energy music that mixes funk, rock & roll, hip-hop, and jazz into the same pot, gluing everything together with the brassy influence - and heavy grooves - of New Orleans.

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; “Go forward,� 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

“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.”
