Well into its sixth decade, Ladysmith Black Mambazo continues to cultivate new fans, the younger the better. While Americans discovered the South African vocal ensemble via its collaboration with Paul Simon on his 1986 album “Graceland,” the group had long been recognized as a leading force in the luxuriantly layered Zulu vocal tradition known as isicathamiya.
Point Richmond violinist Kit Eakle has spent the past few years developing a captivating group sound by melding the music of two of jazz’s most insistently unmistakable innovators, Gypsy swing guitarist Django Reinhardt and pianist/composer Thelonious Sphere Monk. While both musicians exerted a profound and pervasive influence that’s unabated, they shared few acolytes.
As the youngest member of jazz’s most illustrious active dynasty, Jason Marsalis didn’t waste any time carving out his own niche. At 20, the drummer was a founding member of Los Hombres Calientes, holding down rhythm section duties with storied Headhunters percussionist Bill Summers in a band that revealed the underlying rhythmic kinship connecting New Orleans, Havana, Salvador da Bahia, Haiti and other lands transformed by the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
@RichardScheinin yowsie, so sorry to hear you guys are leaving town Rich, though I'm thrilled you've found a music writing gig (talk about water in the desert!). I hope you keep doing the @SFJAZZ pieces...they've been fantastic
Howling the blues at Freight & Salvage tonight with HowellDevine...It promises to be a trippy good time with a liquid light show by George Holden, who helped pioneer the psychedelic art form at the Fillmore in the late 1960s
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
