Monterey >> Whether it was hip shaking Latin jazz with Pedrito Martinez Group on Saturday night in Dizzy’s Den, beautifully voiced jazz piano chords with Joanne Brackeen Trio in Pacific Jazz Café all evening long Saturday, or the Sunday afternoon ending set with rapper/social conscience poet Common, fans were treated to a wide range of music at the 60th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival.
Monterey >> The 60th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival got deep into the groove Saturday afternoon. Just as artistic director Tim Jackson said, the lineup was one of the best there has been in years for what is known traditionally as the Saturday blues afternoon. True, the blues were back as Mr. Sipp tore into his guitar like a man possessed, walking the arena for an extended solo, rubbing shoulders with happy festival patrons.
Monterey >> GoGo Penguin, appearing Friday, opening night at the 60th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival, defies categorization within the strict sense of the jazz genre. In fact, those who go into a GoGo Penguin show with the preconception that they’ll hear jazz often come out saying, “I don’t think so.” And that’s a good thing. The Jazz Festival opened Thursday afternoon with a free concert for Monterey County music students, but shifts into overdrive starting Friday at 6:30 p.m.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
