When Two Jazz Greats Collide.

Jul 22, 2013

Pat Metheny plays John Zorn.     And why not?     While Zorn is best known for his sometimes difficult, avant-garde jazz, Metheny is no stranger to blistering experimentation.   On Tap: The Book of Angels, Vol. 20, Metheny returns to a style he worked in 1994 with Ornette Coleman (‘Song X’), solo in 1994 ('Zero Tolerance for Silence') and then with Derek Bailey in 1996 ('Sign of 4').

It’s been nine years since the last release from The Pixies, and twenty six years since their first release, Come On Pilgrim.  Now in the same time they announce the departure of bassist Kim Deal, arrives a kicking new song, Bagboy.   It’s the same bratty, scratchy and rocking sound as ever:

During the holiday season of 2011/12 it was almost impossible to avoid the three chord singalong, Lonely Boy, the first track on The Black Keys’ seventh album, El Camino.  For bandmates, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney it marked distinct commercial success, as the song reached 64 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the album being certified a platinum record.

It has been a fast-paced year since Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released “Same Love”, the first track off their debut album.   Previously little known hip-hop performers from Seattle, they have now sold more than 2 million copies.  

Returning to western Montana, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis play the Adams Center at the University of Montana on Thursday, Oct. 24.  Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 28, and are available at all GrizTix locations, by calling 1-888-MONTANA or online at griztix.com.

Winner of the of the Americana Music Association's "Artist of the Year" award in 2007, Patty Griffin is touring in support of her seventh album, American Kid.  A collection of songs focused on her late father, this album marks a powerful return to her own writing.   At turns romantic and at others uplifting, Patty gives voice to the joys and challenges of middle age.
