Orquestra Contemporanea de Olinda US Debut at Lincoln Center

I know next to nothing about Brazilian music and all the styles that Orquestra Contemporanea de Olinda were mixing up in their concert last night, but whatever it was is was a lot of fun. Here are some photos from last night:

Billy Prince at Dig Deeper

Next in the Dig Deeper series is Billy Prince, known (or unknown depending who you ask) for his great Detroit soul sides with the group the Precisions. Say hello to him over at his MySpace page. The show had a special opener with a local soul revue featuring Meah Pace from the Mellowmatics, Alba Ponce De Leon of Naomi Shelton's Gospel Queens, Cici James, Eli 'Paperboy' Reed (new album on Capitol on the way), Inyang Bassey (currently touring with Moby) and Jennie Wasserman and Ashley Vitha of the Sweet Divines.

enjoy the photos:

le Daptone: Soul Family no. 1

Daptone licensed a collection of work I shot out there this summer and was able to use it to basically take over an entire magazine - the nicely done Soul Bag from France. Cover, TOC, Editors page, a feature story, an interview with Sharon... le works.
