Support Cool Tunes

We're all about cool tunes here on the road, Live, Local and all that Jazz (pun intended). And we've really been meaning to switch up the blog. (A little less formulaic, you know.) It's nice and all to tell you guys we did this, and then that, BUT we're going for a little more flavor in the future. Be on the look out for recipes, a list of places we've spent the night, trivia, (and yeah, we're overdue on an update too).

In the vein of sweet new stuff, a good friend of ours Elijah Balbed is (and has been) killin it on the DC jazz scene. Trying to raise money can be tough though. Hit the link to help a brother out on his DEBUT CD.

"Finding a balance between tradition and modernism is critical to finding your voice, and can be a life long journey for many. 21-year old Elijah Jamal Balbed is a modern saxophonist with a strong root in tradition, his sound and approach uniquely displays a tasteful blend of old school and new school. A native of Washington, DC, Elijah has established himself as rising star on the saxophone, having been named the Best New Jazz Musician of 2010 by the Washington City Paper, as well as being the Bohemian Caverns Artist in Residence for the month of June, 2011. Elijah currently performs with Funk Ark, Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra, and Chuck Brown." (Chuck Brown, man!)

Elijah Beast Mode, so what?
