So remember when I told you about The Roots headlining the Playboy Jazz Festival? Yeah, I made it out. And here is all the awesome proof.

By the way… check out Slidedeck. Its the truth and the future. I know the photos dont fit into the format yet (still working on it), but if you want to see the picture in full, all you have to do is click on it and it will take you to the full photo.

Also, an interesting interview with Questlove regarding The Roots leading such a prominent jazz festival. I mean, since The Legendary are basically a Jazz Band that do hip hop, I don’t understand what the problem is. Yeah, some of the 60+ got up and left… but they were like, 60. No offense. (And thanks euroweb for featuring my video.)

But really, the YouTubes should give you an ideal of what a fun time it was. Everything I have is up on my YouTube page for you to see.
The best part? The Gil Scott-Heron Cover of “The Bottle” with Terrance Blanchard on the horns. Wow.
Second to that… the lead in from Bob James and Fourplay doing “Westchester Lady,” which led right to The Roots set. Dopeness.

The Roots and Terrance Blanchard: Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Bottle”

….The start of the show… Bob James and Fourplay do “Westchester Lady” before The Roots tear the roof off.

…and here we go.

..and there you go. I didn’t even go to this thing with the intent of recording. I was on my 3rd glass of chardonnay. So its not the greatest stability in the camera. But I hope you semi-enjoy.
Leave a comment in the awesome discuss feature for me, and spread the word.

Sometimes, you don’t need to say anything.

New In-Depth Interviews with Melissa Auf der Maur. Because I adore her.

with 2 comments

Auf der Maur in Nylon. Beautiful Interview.

Melissa in Venus. Win.

part 2

part 3.

So I made it easy for you. You can just go ahead and click on each photo to read the most recent reviews with Melissa Auf der Maur here. Nylon give you a peek at MAdM’s lovely home in upstate new york, while Venus sits down with her and digs a little deeper.

Interesting side note: Courtney has been hyping up Melissa at a few of her last shows, from several different reports (like this one here). I hope Courtney lets go of whatever beef she has with Eric (boy thats a long story), and just… do the old line up. I’d pay quality, QUALITY money for that one. lol.

Enjoy.

Questlove tweets about supposed Third Album; Cover Art for "Wake Up!" | Amy Winehouse and Nas party together in London. Photos:

It looks decent. It sounds better though.

So one day in twitterland, I noticed that @Questlove had changed his twitter avatar picture to what looked like the new cover for “Wake Up!” his new collaborative effort with John Legend. I commented on it shortly, tweeting that I couldn’t pay attention to anything else but what was in that avatar, and wanting to know more. Well, he was nice enough to get back with a twitpic link to the artwork for me, saying “let’s start here. 3-ALBUMS-IN 2010. you thought #HIGO was all? nope i got #musicfordays.”

Well sh*t dude. Now I wanna know what this magical third album is, who it’s with, where its coming from and when can I get it. God. I Hate/Love when my favorite musicians tease me.

Amy and Nas Partying in London. I hope something musically productive comes of this.

In other news, I just wanted to post this one photo of my musical dreams coming true. Depending on how it goes. It seems that Nas and Amy Winehouse have finally touched basis and gotten together to spend some time in London. Amy had been sending Nas secret signals of her adoration since her first album with “In My Bed,” and more blatant references to her love in “Me and Mr. Jones….” So I’ve been wondering if eventually their paths would cross. And they have.

Amy continues to look healthier and has taken off that engagement ring from Blake off her finger (PRAISE JEBUS) and was out and about with two of her (my) favorite musicians, Nas and Damian Marley. The tabloids are going to do whatever they want with this story, but I just want to see some kinda awesome Musical collaboration between all these people. And soon. Hopefully since she’s off the smack, it might actually happen.

These are the random, awesome things that intrigued me in music today. I’m sorry I couldn’t add tons more, as I’m doing 12 things at one time.
Enjoy.
