5-8pm: The Shrine Sunday Jazz Jam Session with Lu Reid

Spontaneous Jazz does not happen at Lincoln Center...or BAM!!! It is still in Harlem, where my friends and I live it every day. All the musicians on these streets are stars. When I was a kid and I first heard the sweet language of that magical Jazz I was hooked for life. You just soaked it up and couldn't help but be moved by it as you walked the streets. I can still feel that kaleidoscope of sound, and I want to bring it to you each and every Sunday.

Indiana-based folk rockers Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery wasted little time between a three song EP (We All Say Hello) and a new full length — and while the general stylistic makeup of the group’s harmonic and melodic sound is largely unchanged, the flow and energy throughout Traveler is a vast improvement. The infusion of genre-bending tonality and harmony, instead of the rigid acoustic folk rock sound that prevailed on We All Say Hello, allows Traveler to evolve and expand musically without feeling forced or one-dimensional.
