Phoebe Snow - July 12, 1950 – April 26, 2011

Phoebe Snow’s first album, a self-titled LP in 1974, contained her biggest hit entitled Poetry Man. Enjoy this 1989 performance below.


Jarle Bernhoft

The soulful recording artist and producer, Kelly Moneymaker, was where I found out about the fabulous Jarle Bernhoft this week. I feel he is one of the freshest, most organic and unmanufactured emerging musical artists I have heard this year.

A little research uncovered that "Bernhoft", as he is known, has been emerging for years and is signed to Universal Music Norge of Norway. Mike Finnigan, the legendary hammond player and keyboardist extraordinaire who recently did another world tour with Joe Cocker, informed me that Berhoft opened for several Joe Cocker shows in Europe recently.

Bernhoft is a self contained unit, a one man band, that relies on loops he lays down with his voice and with instruments as he goes. His soulful and deliberate croon is contagious and entertaining. Enjoy! GC

If you like Bernhoft's music, sign up at his page, Bernhoft.Org, where all can get some free downloads for at least a little while!

Mike Finnigan favorite pick: Enrique Morente and Eva Yerbabuena

The legendary keyboardist, hammond extraordinaire and vocalist, Mike Finnigan, turned his facebook friends onto this video of Enrique Morento a couple of days ago. Mike asked that all wait for the dancer, Eva Yerbabuena, to appear, which occurs at the 2 minute and 30 second point. Bravo! gc



LAURA DÍAZ & JUAN FRÍAS - Music from some balconies of Mexico City

Stephen O'Regan is one of my favorite producers of music content on YouTube with his ongoing music series known as Balcony TV at BalconyTV.Com. He has a network of directors in cities around the world that shoot bands and artists on various balconies. The videos and archives are posted on BalconyTV.Com and end up on O'Regan's YouTube Channel as well at youtube.com/stephenoregan.

Often times the interviews are in foreign languages, just like the films below shot on rooftops in Mexico City.

Here is LAURA DÍAZ & JUAN FRÍAS
