The Stage is being Set!

Update: New York is planning to gradually open back up the city. Yay! June 8th has been the New York's Governor's proposed opening date. In light of the peaceful rallies and curfew. It still may take some time before NYC gets back into full swing of things. That means a few things for us. Most importantly, the Coronavirus outbreak here in NYC has been significantly reduced. Secondly, going out in the city again for live entertainment is about to resurge. Jazz it Up! is looking forward to going out covering the jazz venues.

I will keep you posted. Like our last Jazz inBetween newsletter, I incorporated Spotlight performances from season 1 and 2. So, check out Kenny Garrett and Eldar.

The mostly online fest — tagline: 11 Days of Virtual Music and Real Food — runs from Thursday, June 4, through Sunday, June 14.

One insidious example was the cabaret card, a form of identification required for any musician to work in a New York nightclub from 1940 to 1967. The New York Police Department administered these licenses and revoked them for any minor infraction. As a result, some of the biggest names in the music at the time, like Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker, lost their right to work at a crucial points in their careers.

Remember when you were a kid? You’d hear a certain song on the radio, and there was something magical about it that made you want to buy it and play it over and over again. You weren’t sure whether it was the melody, rhythm or harmony that hooked you…

Requiem For The Faithful by ISQ

"Stone" is the third single taken from "Requiem For the Faithful", the highly-anticipated third release from London-based post-jazz/Art Pop quartet ISQ. An electronica infused ballad, it blends modern sounds with a vintage soul where the piano/synth, double bass and drums all intertwine with the vocals to create a slice of perfect nu jazz.
