DWIGHT & NICOLE

American recording artists DWIGHT & NICOLE (Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson) have inspired comparisons to some of the greats: Etta James & John Lee Hooker, The Rolling Stones & The Staple Singers, but it is their fresh blend of spirited blues, rock & gospel that is landing them their own spot among the celebrated music makers.

HOT CLUB OF DETROIT

Their new ablum “Junction” sounds at once vintage and boldly new, rooted in the legacy of Django Reinhardt but also the sensibilities of Ornette Coleman, Pat Metheny, John Zorn and even the rock band Phish.

Far from a traditional gypsy jazz ensemble, Hot Club of Detroit (HCOD) proves itself a versatile modern jazz group, with a unique acoustic-electric sound that surges past expectations and genre boundaries. Performance Video

PATRICIA BARBER

From her early days leading a jazz trio in small Chicago nightclubs, Patricia Barber has drawn extravagant accolades. The praise came at first from local writers, impressed by her unique arrangements and coolly composed piano improvisations. As she added vocals to her repertoire, the praise poured in from national reviewers intoxicated by her recordings. And when (after years of international touring) she began to focus on her own compositions, kudos arrived from new fans, besotted by her lapidary lyrics and her often indelible imagery.
