Fits just right: Saxophonist sounds at home with latest band aND record

columbiatribune.com — Musically, Steve Wilson seems to fit in wherever he goes. The veteran saxophonist once was the focus of a New York Times feature "A Sideman's Life," and with good reason - over the course of approximately 30 years in jazz, Wilson has gigged with the likes of the Mingus Big Band, Michael Brecker, Dianne Reeves, George Duke and Joanne Brackeen.

Letting go, taking hold - Columbia Daily Tribune

columbiatribune.com — Amy Meyer's face is familiar to those well-acquainted with the Columbia art scene. She has welcomed the creative and curious into significant spaces - first as education director at Columbia Art League, now as a curator and administrator at PS:Gallery - and her own work has graced gallery walls.

Watson embodies old-time definition of folk singer

columbiatribune.com — Willie Watson knows who he wants to be. A troubadour with a sound older than his years, the former Old Crow Medicine Show member made his intentions - and his music - plain on last year's "Folk Singer, Vol. 1."

Nelson remains country music’s great ambassador

columbiatribune.com — If the United Nations - or any other diplomatic body - is ever in the market for a new ambassador, they could do a whole lot worse than Willie Nelson. The soon-to-be 82-year-old has a knack for bringing people together.

Baltimore band sinks teeth into fresh musical direction

columbiatribune.com — Newcomers to the sound of Baltimore's Pianos Become the Teeth will hear loud, zealous rock 'n' roll, tinged by darkness and carried along by swiftly moving currents of drama and emotion. Longtime fans might be inclined to call the group's latest - "Keep You" - its quiet record.

CCO, chamber choir to perform eight works with Missouri ties

columbiatribune.com — One of the New Music Initiative's cornerstones, the Missouri Composers Orchestra Project, will have its featured concert Saturday night. The Columbia Civic Orchestra and Columbia Chamber Choir will perform eight pieces written by Missourians or composers with Missouri ties. Consider it a Show-Me State musical show-and-tell.

Just the two of us: Dynamic Portland duo brings off-kilter charm to True/False

columbiatribune.com — Strangled Darlings marches to the beat of a different drummer, a notion made all the more evident by the band's lack of an actual drummer. The Portland, Ore., duo - George Veech and Jess Anderly - seems uninterested in popular expectations or dictionary definitions of what a band is or should do.

Will be interesting to see if bands begin boycotting Indiana, much like with AZ SB 1070. See @wilco timeline for May cancellation in Indy.
