Cosmic Jazz from Dean Magraw & Eric Kamau Gravatt!
Fire on the Nile is the fresh new jazz instrumental record from Dean Magraw & Eric Kamau Gravatt! We'll celebrate its release on Friday, October 17th as part of the Red House Live from the Landmark fall music series!
This record is far-out jazz that showcases two jazz masters coming together to create an album like few others out there. It's bare-bones yet packed full with spontaenous energy that conjures a Coltraine attitude and takes the listener on a cosmic aural romp!
Tickets to the CD release show are now available and you can listen to the jaunting "Coast Highway" below!
Claudia Schmidt Returns to St. Paul!
Claudia Schmidt will be at the Celtic Junction on Saturday, September 20th with the Eight Head Band! If you saw her at the Dakota in March in Minneapolis, then you know you're in for a treat.
