Fun day at Sea
One of the things I really love about capital jazz in comparison to other musical themed cruises is that there is more than just jazz. Since I am familiar with the Indie Soul Movement via my co-founding of One Nation Under The Soul Shack, affectionately known as ONUTSS, many of the Soul Lounge artists I am either familiar with or have hosted their listening parties in New York.
Hence, when Capital Jazz presents artists I am unacquainted with, like Secret Society, Black Violin, Jarrod Lawson, Chante Cann, Moonchild, Butterscotch, and Matthew Whitaker, just to name a few; it broadens my horizon and allows me to share excellent talent with my readers. These artists’ music you won’t find on your local radio station, which is why many believe good music rests in the past. I’m a witness, great music LIVES and BREATHES!
The weather was a little breezy but the sun was prominent enough to allow for some tanning and getting down with the Secret Society Party Band! It was like rocking to a DJ set but with live instruments. They tore the invisible roof off the sucka!
I’ve been wanting to see The Baylor Project for quite some time and finally had the chance to see them do their thing, and they made me proud I was in the room taking in all that goodness! What a beautiful couple they are who creates incredible music together. You may remember Jean Baylor from the duo, Zhane (Hey Mr. DJ).
A quick look back
