Kamasi Washington Announces Free Concert To Kick Off NYC’s SummerStage

first_imgRising star Kamasi Washington will play a free concert this summer as a part of Central Park’s SummerStage series. Coming off a year in which the tenor saxophonist released his debut album, The Epic, to rave reviews, Washington will join a long list of celebrated jazz artists to play the NYC series, the first coming in 1986 held at Central Park’s Naumberg Bandshell, featuring the Sun Ra Arkestra.Says Heather Lubov, the executive director of the City Parks Foundation, “For the last couple of years we’ve been identifying a theme, something that’s relevant to New York City.” She adds, “This year, given what seems to be a resurgence of the music particularly with younger jazz artists, it made sense to infuse jazz throughout our festival.”Other performances at this year’s SummerStage will include a June 4th appearance by the McCoy Tyner Quartet and groups led by the bassist Ron Carter and the drummer Roy Haynes as a part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival, as well as Jason Lindner’s Breeding Ground in Marcus Garvey Park on August 26 and the Donny McCaslin Quartet in Tompkins Square Park on August 28 as a part of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival.SummerStage’s full schedule will be released this April and available here, but in the mean time, you can check out this live performance by Kamasi Washington via Jazz Night In America featuring several cuts from The Epic including “Askim,” “Change of the Guard” and “Henrietta Our Hero.”[Quotes via The New York Times]last_img read more

Poyet wants to ruin Blues’ run

first_imgSunderland boss Gus Poyet says he doubts Chelsea have an unbeaten season in mind as Jose Mourinho’s men prepare to head to the Stadium of Light on Saturday. Poyet said: “There are plenty of games to go and I don’t believe the aim for Chelsea right now is to not lose a game. “I think it is to win every trophy and if they need to lose one or two games I don’t think they are going to be too bothered about it.” Poyet masterminded his side’s win at Stamford Bridge in April which shattered Chelsea’s 77-game unbeaten home record, and also overturned them in the Capital One Cup. Poyet added: “If you win every game you get stronger and you get that feeling in the team that you can play badly and still win and at least get a draw. “But the next team is the one who has the opportunity to stop them somehow and everybody is going to want to take that chance – and now the opportunity is for us.” Meanwhile Poyet confirmed Argentinian wide man Ricky Alvarez could feature after recovering from an injury which has kept him out since the end of September. The all-conquering nature of the Londoners’ start to the season has raised inevitable comparisons with Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ who finished the 2003/4 season without a loss. But Poyet believes that while the prize of becoming the first team to beat them is there for opponents, Mourinho will have different priorities. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Hamilton dismisses ‘silly’ Formula One title talk

first_img0Shares0000Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain and Mercedes GP in the Drivers Press Conference during previews ahead of the United States Formula One Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas on October 19, 2017 in Austin, Texas © Getty/AFP / CLIVE MASONAUSTIN, United States, Oct 19 – Lewis Hamilton dismissed talk of him wrapping up a fourth world title at the United States Grand Prix this weekend as “silly”.The 32-year-old Briton can claim the 2017 crown if he is triumphant for Mercedes and nearest rival Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari fails to finish in the top five in Sunday’s race at the Circuit of the Americas. “Honestly, I don’t know, all of the talk of a championship win here is silly really –- Sebastian won’t have the same difficulties and he will be very quick.“For me, it (the title) will be done in the last four races so my focus here is on winning.“I don’t mind if it is done here or at the last race, but the most important thing here is to win, in the midst of all that is going on in the country and that is a priority for me -– and you know what I am talking about.”Hamilton declined to elaborate on his plans or the significance of his comments about why winning is such a priority for him. He suggested that a member of the media audience understood, without explaining.When he was asked directly if he intended to take a knee in support of the protests by NFL players against racial injustice and police brutality, he distanced himself from some of his earlier comments on the subject.“I’ve not given that much thought,” he said, adding that when he had referred to a “gentleman at the front” who understood his thinking he was not considering the protest action.“I’ve worked hard to be here today and I have feelings about the whole situation, but at the moment I have no plans to do anything.”He added that if he was not to win the title in the United States, he would be happy to win it in Mexico, Brazil or Abu Dhabi.“I’m looking forward to going to Mexico as you can always feel the love and the support there and it is an awesome event to go to and it is growing every year.“Winning is the goal and all my drive and energy goes on that mission. I don’t mind where it happens –- here or in Mexico of Abu Dhabi. In Mexico, they know how to celebrate and so I’ll get a sombrero and party if it happens there.”Given a chance to talk about his likely duel with Vettel, he said he was planning to continue in the same concentrated mode as he has all year.“I am anticipating he will be strong in the last four races, as he has been strong all year,” he said.“So, nothing changes for me -– there is no backing out and I’ll just keep pushing forwards.”In earlier comments, he had revealed his feelings and respect for the protest.“I know a lot of people in America so I get to speak to a lot of black and white people that live here,” he said.“I get quite a good view of what’s happening here in the States and I get opinions from the Americans here about the movement, which I think is pretty huge.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
