I spent last weekend at FL!GHT Camp, a camping fundraiser for the kooky little San Antonio art gallery where I help out, and had to leave this show here in my stead, but I've been gathering new music in the last week that I've been wanting to put together for this show and I think it all worked out.

The Line-Up for 30 March 2018

Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective Drop New Single "Dear Jimi"

Sébastien Hélary
Co-Founder
s.helary@nextbop.com / @helaryous

Terence Blanchard and his band the E-Collective are back with a new album entitled Live, set to drop April 20th on Blue Note Records. Following their politically-charged 2015 release Breathless, aimed at raising awareness against police brutality (more specifically the Eric Garner incident), Live is the next logical step in the progression taking aim at the staggering cyclical epidemic of gun violence in America. The music of Live was symbolically recorded at venues in three communities that have experience escalating conflicts between law enforcement and African American citizens and condemns gun violence of all manner whether against profiled citizens of color or targeted members of law enforcement. Joining Blanchard are Charles Altura on guitar, Fabian Almazan on piano and synthesizers, Oscar Seaton on drums, and new addition David “DJ” Ginyard on bass.

Anteloper (Jaimie Branch & Jason Nazary) - "Ohoneotree Suite" (Stream)

Trumpeter Jaimie Branch, who wowed the masses with last year's Fly or Die, is a frequent collaborator with drummer Jason Nazary (of Bear in Heaven, Little Women, Helado Negro). Together, with the addition of synthesizers into their sound, the pair are Anteloper, exploring psychedelic directions and feeling quite free. They're set to release their album (or, er, cassette), Kudu, April 20th on the International Anthem label, so be on the lookout for that. In the meantime, take a while and bask in the odd expanse that is the first single, "Ohoneotree Suite", after the jump while preordering the album.

Zack Nestel-Patt - 'River Run'

Bassist/composer Zack Nestel-Patt describes his debut album, River Run, as having "the sensibilities of an indie rock album" while still rooted in jazz elements and the "tradition of improvised music". It's a succinct, but accurate descriptor of his work. River Run has the jumble of the avant-garde with the gentle temperance and focus one would hear from Bon Iver or Grizzly Bear. Altogether, there's something particular here, something special, something that allows for grandiosity for a trio led from a bassist's big ideas.
