Nineteen Thirteen Intrigues at ALL

Had the chance to catch up with our friends Janet Schiff and Victor DeLorenzo of Nineteen Thirteen as they prepare to put on two sets this coming Friday, October 28th at Arts & Literature Laboratory. As Halloween approaches, it will be quite the thrill to have the mystery and surprise of cello and percussion to hold your hand through the evening hour. In this conversation, Janet and Victor will tease you into needing to know more about the sound they create that has left audiences on their feet and momentarily weeping with emotion. We talk briefly about the growth of the music and compositions prepared and tinkered with by the duo as they create a sonic banter with the ease of friendly conversation. It’s these real people that make this for us. Together we explore how the newest album, “The Dream”, set to be release on 11/11/2016 and the release just put out on May 13th of this year, “Music For time Travel”, have been both a guide and a direction. As I have offered up an opinion when asked what this music is like, and we have had the pleasure of Janet and Victor’s time on the proGram often…..I can honestly admit that it is like nothing else I have ever soaked in, and it tickles your insides through each ear on its way down to your souls. But of course, who am I to tell you about it? Check out this conversation for a clue, and maybe we will see you down at Arts & Literature Laboratory to share in the mystique.

Check out of conversation here:

Peppermoth by Andrew McPherson

Having the opportunity to catch up with artists who always push themselves and their boundaries is another one of those things I enjoy about the music scene I have gotten myself a part of. Andrew McPherson is one of those people who exemplifies many of the ways I look at sound and style, musically and otherwise. We have kept a long standing check in and check out period of our lives and this time around I catch him just finishing up his latest release by a project he calls, Peppermoth. The album titled “Now You Hear Me” is a statement into the ambient music that has always been around in Andrew’s mind. So the whole “Why Not” conversation inside ones mind took over and out came the workings of this new tale of music. This is a far reaching stretch compared to so many of those Eccodek releases the listeners of this radio proGram have dugg into over the years. That’s entirely what relationships are about, change over times. In this conversation, we chat about process and feel, time and space as well as those defining moments once again in an artists life on which path and where is it leading. I hope you’ll find out which fork in the road Andrew decided on by checking out the sounds of Peppermoth, and see how it can fit into your times.

Neal Casal Talks Brotherhood

I had the opportunity to chat aGain this year with Neal Casal as he and Chris Robinson Brotherhood head back to Madison for a show at the Majestic Saturday, October 15th. I want to make sure to thank Neal for making himself available on the tour scene to give you, the greenarrowradio listeners, a little extra shake. Last year there was not an empty seat in the building and no one left disappointed. Well, maybe the folks who didn’t get in did?! We spoke about what can be expected as they grace the stage for an evening of real music making. We also took time to discuss the new album ANYWAY YOU LOVE, WE KNOW HOW YOU FEEL which is out now Via SILVER ARROW RECORDS. The conversation about the place where the recording of this new release took place is one for the musical ages as I believe Neal paints the picturesque setting perfectly as a spot you and I should be jealous of working at. It sounds like a place to remember, just like this will be a show not to forGet. It also was a special place that held a ton of new inspiration for writing and recording, which totally benefits the listeners and the concert goers. This group of sound brothers is a tight entity musically, but they are also connected by the spirit of being real. I hope you’ll take a moment and check out not only this conversation, but if that isn’t enough, try some of their tunes and then maybe even get down there to see them live. This is not just another rock band.

Short Stories w/Tony Moreno


I had the pleasure of discussing life and music with Mr. Tony Moreno as his latest project, released on Mayimba Jazz, “Short Stories” is ready to hit your ears. The record is the culmination of over four years of playing with a group made up of close friends and artistic companions, and in many ways it represents a piece of the process of rebuilding for Tony. It also represents Tony’s gratitude — the recording itself was made possible by an outpouring of love and support from the wider musical community, from friends and strangers alike. Hurricane Sandy put a giant dent into the world of so many, and it certainly did a number on many musicians, Tony being one of them. In our chat, he talks about some of the people and ways people made a difference in his ability to continue on in his chosen career and love of music. We talk a walk down Jazz history lane when Tony reveals how he first met Mr. Elvin Jones and the ease in which they became fast family… We learn of a unique bond between him and his mother, who always kept music as the pulse to their lives. There are many revealing moments in our conversation, from ballads to rebuilding, but most of all it is the true story telling nature of an educator, drummer and man who understands what makes the difference in this world….LOVE. Over the years I have had the honor of speaking with many people who show a love for what they do, I can add Mr. Moreno to that list of an appreciator of people, art and the sounds that bridge us all together. I hope you’ll take time to go enjoy his album as well as checking out this moment in time shared by two people who dig the stories, both short and long.

Eljuri’s La Lucha

It is always a great reminder of why we build bridGes when two friends of music get together to talk about the sounds, the process and the results. Eljuri is one of those people I hold close to my musical heart as we kinda started out at the same time forging different paths for sharing. It was like we never skipped a beat. We had a chance to discuss her latest release, “La Lucha” on Manovill Records when it was still in that fragile stage of people’s ears just getting a chance to hear it. Her connection to the international flavor of her family as well as her beloved New York City keeps her eye and mind on the happenings around her as it pertains to all people, and how she has a voice for those who otherwise may not be heard. Just like the way her and I, and several other music sharers out there feel about her, Sly & Robbie must as well, as they make another guest appearance on this album to help give it a little extra sumthin’ sumthin’that only those magicians of sound can do. While she blazes on the guitar for sure and does climb the ladder of social justice on this album, her connection to you as a listener is clear, concise and connected. I am happy to share our conversation with you, and feel free to join the discussion with others.


The Planets at the Symphony

Witnessed this performance at the Overture Center as part of the Madison Symphony Orchestra:

II. John Corigliano | Chaconne from The Red Violin

The first half of the show was simply energizing and enlightening with both power and precision highlighted. The Planets took it to the next level with the HD video presentation that made the sounds guide a tour that was unmatched in this setting. If you were ever enthralled by the vastness and wildness of the colors and sounds of space and it’s mighty giants, this show would certainly add another level to your imagination and desire to explore.

Apples of your Ears

10 Years with Jake Shimabukuro


It has been 10 plus years that I am proud to call Jake and I musical friends. Creator and listener. It is nice to know that my opinions mean something to a guy who is both a phenom of an artists but even more so of a great person. I have watched him grow as a musician and an experimenter with sound, and on his latest release, “Nashville Sessions”, Jake works with Nolan Verner on bass and Evan Hutchings on drums to make an album of tunes quite different than his previous bundleof releases I have happily supported over the decade. You get some of the same flavors, but listen to our chat to find out some of the nuisances that are clearly unveiling before your ears. You too will hear that Carlos Santana zip and that Eddie Van Halen rip & tear. The way Jake relays how the new album went from an idea, with no real plan at first to its final stages where a G like me gets to share it with you, the listeners is fascinating. Jake will be heading to Milwaukee for a show at the Pabst Theater on November 6th. I am sure folks around here will be able to see/hear exactly what I mean about Mr. Jake Shimabukuro if/when they take the journey through the ukulele with him.
