Geri Allen + Patrice Rushen w/ Special Guest Terri Lyne Carrington | Kennedy Center

Playing on two facing Steinway Grand pianos, Kennedy Center favorite Geri Allen shared the stage with R&B hitmaker Patrice Rushen ("Forget Me Nots").  They were joined by in-demand drummer Terri Lyne Carrington for a unique evening of music.

A jazz pianist, composer and arranger, Allen was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship Award for Music Composition in 2008 and the Kennedy Center's Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Award in 2010. The New York Times hails the Howard University alum as "a jazz pianist who dares to follow an unmarked road."

Multi-Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, composer and pianist Patrice Rushen (returning to the Center for the first time since 1996) has been praised for playing that is "stunning" and "consistently powerful" (Los Angeles Times).

World-renowned drummer/composer/producer Terri Lyne Carrington's ongoing appearances at the Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival and music direction for the all-star concert Billie & Me have also secured her place as a Kennedy Center favorite.

http://www.funkydrummer.com/JPphotos/mikeclarkphotos/mikeclarkphoto3.jpg

These videos of Paul Jackson + Mike Clark of The Headhunters improvising define "musical genius".

While disrespectful to the philosophical foundations of mathematics this duo is better than you favorite quintet (2 > 5).

Beat-Maker-Beat (BMB) AKA Space Kid | MacroKosmos

http://bandcamp.com/files/61/10/611018806-1.jpg 

Friday perfect!

Experimental, spacey ambiance of dubstep jabbed with real-time, well-timed, electro/future-jazz constituents bound by the bravado of hip-hop drum bounce glue.

Dopeness.

Do the math.

MacroKosmos = d/l.

How Michael Jackson Saved Sesame Street

http://toughpigs.com/uploaded_images/Oscarjacko-735589.jpg

For all of the musical parodies that Sesame Street produced, very few of them resembled the original song enough to warrant legal action.
 
In the early 1980s, the Children’s Television Workshop (CTW) was sued for $5.5 million by the Northern Songs, owners of the Beatles catalogue, who said the song “Letter B”, performed by the Sesame Street Beetles, had the unfortunate distinction of being too similar to the original “Let It Be.”
