    Billy Cobham—Spectrum 40

      Nineteen-seventy-three was a big year for Billy Cobham. After releasing Birds of Fire with pioneering jazz-fusion band the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the drummer went solo, releasing Spectrum in a matter of months. The record launched what has become a storied career for the 70-year-old, so its 40th anniversary has become an occasion for Cobham to [...]

The company will perform a variety of works including “Whirlaway,” a collaboration between company founder-choreographer David Parsons and New Orleans musical legend Allen Toussaint, “Introduction” and the showstopping “Caught.” Why does the company return to [...]

    Tuba Skinny

      Every Americana band are “old-fashioned” in some way, but Tuba Skinny have actually built their career the old-fashioned way. Starting out as a scruffy band of street buskers in New Orleans circa 2009, the group were playing for loose change and hand-rolled cigarettes before they took their act on the road. We first saw [...]

    Steely Dan

      We think it’s acceptable to claim Steely Dan as one of our region’s great local bands. Walter Becker and Donald Fagen met at Bard College back in the late ’60s before releasing their breakout debut Can’t Buy a Thrill in 1972. The rest is classic-rock history. You’re likely a fan or a detractor depending [...]

    James Bond Film Festival

      Albany’s Madison Theater is presenting a James Bond sampler this week, with one film each per four of the six actors in the “official” Bond series. (Sorry, Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby.) Sean Connery is represented by the stylish Goldfinger, costarring Gert Frobe as the titular villain and Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore. Screening [...]

    EMEFE

      EMEFE roll deep. The New York-based Afrofunk band are presently 10 strong, which not only helps them cover all the intricate horn arrangements and percussion parts their music requires, but it also means they literally bring the dance party with them when they play. At 22, bandleader and drummer Miles Arntzen is just a [...]
