Having followed up his Polaris Prize-winning 2007 record Andorra with the universally adored Swim in 2010, Dan Snaith has spent the intervening five years touring the world, bringing not only the sounds of Caribou to the stage but proving his immeasurable worth as a DJ with epic 7½-hour-long sets. In 2012, Caribou were personally invited to join Radiohead on the road while Dan released his first album under the guise of his dancefloor-loving pseudonym Daphni to widespread critical acclaim. Sinkane - It’s soul music! And truly universal; uniting rhythm and styles from our world over to help you move, relate and be, Sinkane’s latest album, Mean Love, rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Co-produced with long-time Sinkane collaborator and childhood friend Greg Lofaro, Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time.

1973 in Kingston, Jamaica was an absolutely insane time in musical history. Bob Marley and his label Island Records were at the peak of their powers, dub music and deejaying were emerging from a reggae subculture, and new configurations of R&amp;B and calypso were lighting up dance clubs around the city. Enter THIRD WORLD, a group of friends who found their own place in this rich ecosystem, “seamlessly fusing reggae with soul and pop” (Billboard). They caught Marley’s eye, were asked to tour in support of the Wailers, and the rest is history. Forty-plus years and ten GRAMMY nominations later, they are as cool, steady and easy as ever. Last year they lost their beloved leader William “Bunny Rugs” Clarke, but the magnificent AJ Brown took on lead vocals and they have risen like the phoenix from the ashes, discovering new corners of the same time-tested grooves. Brooklyn is home to the largest Jamaican population anywhere other than Kingston. The faithful will be out in force, so come early to this one. Opening the evening is AWA SANGHO, “the Golden Voice of Mali.” Born near Timbuktu and raised in the Ivory Coast, Sangho carries the rich tradition of West African song in her heart and lungs.

The season closes on an ecstatically high note with the one-of-a-kind tUnE-yArDs, project of New England native Merrill Garbus who has been called everything from “righteous with a carnival kick,” (NY Times) to “idiosyncratic, high-stakes and empowering.” (Pitchfork) Her 2011 record Whokill is hailed as a modern classic, with a lo-fi tapestry of beats, guitars, and horns weaving around her unmistakable, fearlessly belting voice. After three years of touring she returned last May with her follow-up Nikki Nack, which casts her songwriting and voice in a candied indie pop setting, complete with a Seussian stage setup and costumes. Pitchfork praises the record for its “songs that sound like playgrounds full of street kids ricocheting off each other like bumper cars.” Garbus is a genuine tour de force and possesses the rare combination of wicked braininess with complete warmth and lack of pretense. The “free associative, raw and radical” (LA Times) experimental hip-hop duo SHABBAZZ PALACES rounds out the bill. After emerging a few years ago in a cloud of mystery, they have come to stand for a woozy, patchwork, and altogether intoxicating approach to beat-making. Together, they threaten to make this the NYC show of the summer.

Glass Animals vocalist and songwriter David Bayley draws influence for both music and artwork from his involvement in the world of medicine and neuroscience (at just 22 years old, he has studied both) creating a sound with it’s roots spread between the electronic and live instrumentation. The result is the warm, narcotic space between a downbeat, slow-burning groove and electro-pop catchiness. Brooklyn-based producer, composer, pianist, DJ and live musician Taylor McFerrin released his first full length LP, Early Riser, in June 2014 on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder record label. Taylor’s musical style is equally influenced by the legends of 60s/70s Soul, the kings of the Modern Beat Generation, Golden Era hip hop, free form jazz and electronic music. By playing all of the instruments on his productions, while also relying heavily on sampling and chopping up his live takes, he has found a sound that seamlessly bridges myriad musical worlds and draws the listener into a constantly shifting audio soundscape. Brooklyn’s own extreme dance league, BattleFest, brings its best dancers out for a live performance. “Flex” dancing as it’s known, involves dance battle competitions that are at once flights of fancy as well as poetic evocations of the streets.

Invincible is a live multi-media spectacular with performances of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits including, “Thriller,” “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” “Man In the Mirror” and many more. The show features talented artists who can sing live while also executing the intense dancing that the King of Pop was so famous for. This show captures the spirit and essence of watching and listening to Michael Jackson perform live onstage like no other! Don’t miss the “Dance Like Michael” workshop prior to the performance. Also: Bottom Heavy instantly established itself as a strong new sound; flowing freely between funky instrumentals, dreamy lullabies in soul and blues inflected songs. Marika Hughes fronts the band with such ease and so naturally it makes one wonder why cellos haven’t always fronted bands. Her stylings are reminiscent of her classical upbringing yet defy expectation as she moves us with her supple vocals through jazz, funk, soul, rock, and back again. The band can tip its hat to some of our greatest artists as influences; Gil-Scott Heron, Roberta Flack, Don Pullen, Charles Mingus and Cassandra Wilson, The Staple Singers, to name only a few. As you are charmed by her cello, her voice, and her band, you will be charmed by Marika herself: fiercely authentic, her audience an old friend invited along for the fabulous ride.

The groundbreaking Texan singer and bandleader “effortlessly bridges the genre gap between big-band jazz and the Grand Ole Opry. He spices his sound with bits of blues, bluegrass and grassroots folk, his reedy voice being the consistent, unifying factor among the styles” (John Serba of MLive). A perfect slice of Americana topped off with a fine looking Stetson hat.

In 1983, Felix Hernandez began a two-year project traveling the U.S. collecting hundreds of hours of interviews with R&amp;B artists. The material was used for a 13-part radio documentary called Harlem Hit Parade, which was syndicated to 70 NPR stations in the mid-80’s. In 1986, Felix introduced Rhythm Revue, New York’s first radio show devoted exclusively to classic soul and R&amp;B. It premiered on WBGO and is now in its 29th year. In 1989, Felix was awarded the first of many production grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Arts, to develop and produce a weekly radio presentation of live blues and R&amp;B. In 1991, Felix did his first Rhythm Revue Dance Party at Tramps in New York City. The party outgrew Tramps and moved to the Roseland Ballroom in 1992, where it was held for over two decades. Felix’s unique mix of classic soul, disco and funk consistently draws a crowd of 2,500 to 3,500 dancers per event. Also: Anchored on the Fania All Stars’ historic performance at the Cheetah Club on the evening of August 26, 1971, Our Latin Thing captures the New York salsa explosion of the ‘70s in all its power and passion. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Leon Gast, the movie features performances from Cheo Feliciano, Héctor Lavoe, Ismael Miranda, Adalberto Santiago and Pete ‘El Conde’ Rodríguez. Gast also takes to the streets of Spanish Harlem where the Salsa phenomenon was born, and brings viewers behind the scenes and into the recording studio for a peek into the creative process with producer/keyboardist Larry Harlow.

During the 1990s, Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia (Kool Bob Love) introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun as well as an unknown Jay-Z, Eminem, Fat Joe, and the Fugees through their eponymous radio show. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their show exceeds 300 million. Stretch and Bobbito created a platform that changed music forever, but their musical merits are only half the story. Their show had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population. All would loyally tune in for the offbeat humor just as much as for the exclusive music. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and inspired a movement. Their impact is still felt today, as they celebrate their 25th anniversary with a concert featuring DJ sets and guest artist appearances along with a film screening of the documentary Stretch and Bobbito which explores the social impact of what the Source Magazine voted “The Best Hip Hop Radio Show Of All-Time.”

In 1933, while head of the Fine Arts Department of México, Carlos Chávez created the Orquesta Mexicana, an ensemble of traditional indigenous and mestizo instruments, which he conducted in 1940 as part of MoMA’s Twenty Centuries of Mexican Art exhibition. In 2013, Mixtec musician and researcher Rubén Luengas Pérez revived the Orquesta Mexicana with Orquesta Pasatono (Oaxaca). Within Chávez’s composition Cantos de México, Pasatono discovered a unique set of rhythms, styles, and musical form in the context of an indigenous and mestizo instrumentation: sets of Zapotec chirimía from Oaxaca, traditional mariachi, banda, the ritual percussion of peoples in the Mexican northwest, and an abstraction of pre-Hispanic percussion. This program by Pasatono channels the diverse legacy of musical traditions embodied in the work of Carlos Chávez.

The New York Times called Willie Nile "one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years." His album “Streets Of New York” was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by UNCUT magazine. Rolling Stone listed “The Innocent Ones” as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ‘n’ roll album of the year.” Hoochie Coochie Men are a folk-tinged, blues rock revival born on the crossroads of the Delaware and Lehigh river. A booming six-piece, fronted by three diverse vocalists and an electrifying guitar, Hoochie Coochie Men are closing their summer tour.

Dr. Lonnie Smith - Dr. Lonnie Smith is an unparalleled musician, composer, performer and recording artist. An authentic master and guru of the Hammond B-3 organ for over five decades, he has been featured on over seventy albums, and has recorded and performed with a virtual “Who’s Who” of the greatest jazz, blues and R&amp;B giants in the industry. Consequently, he has often been hailed as a “Legend,” a “Living Musical Icon,” and as the most creative jazz organist by a slew of music publications. Andy Bey - Andy Bey’s silky baritone has become one of the finest instruments in jazz, resonating through decades of American standards. A lyrical storyteller, he possesses “a film noir voice: languid, mysterious, and surpassingly beautiful” (The New York Times). Bay’s four-octave range starts at a low C and he is virtually alone today in his ability to summon the deep, manly burnish of some of the great band baritones, like Billy Eckstine. Jeff Watts - Jeff Watts, the drummer they call “Tain,” spent his formative years with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, and his compositional skills now command equal attention. he joined the Wynton Marsalis Quartet in 1981 and proceeded to win three Grammy Awards with the ensemble for Black Codes From The Underground, J Mood and Marsalis Standard Time – Volume 1. Camille Thurman - Camille Thurman, multi-talented saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, composer and educator is a young musician emerging on the horizon, acquiring an impressive list of accomplishments that extend well beyond her years. Her lush, velvety, rich and warm sound on the tenor saxophone has eluded others to compare her sound to the likeness of tenor greats Gene Ammons, Dexter Gordon and Lester Young to name a few. Norma Miller - Norma Miller is one of the creators of the acrobatic style of swing dancing known as the Lindy Hop. As a child, she watched the dancers at the legendary Savoy Ballroom perched on the fire escape outside her mother’s Harlem apartment. When she was 12, she was “discovered” dancing outside the Savoy, and in 1934 was invited to join Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, soon to make an extended tour of Europe. Samuel Coleman - Samuel Coleman is an Alvin Ailey School trained dancer and teacher, with a focus on lindy hop (swing) dancing. Coleman teaches in Harlem and Albany, and performs with the Big Apple Lindy Hoppers and the Rhythm Stompers. Coleman was a 2011 Frankie Manning Ambassador scholarship recipient.

As one of the last black string bands in the U.S. - currently based in the concrete hills of NYC - The Ebony Hillbillies keep an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that many forget was a key element in the genesis of all the music cherished as uniquely American: jazz, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, rock and roll and country. The EH are led by Henrique Prince (fiddle, vocals) and Norris Bennett (banjo, mountain dulcimer, guitar, vocals) and feature Gloria Thomas Gassaway on vocals and bones, William "Salty Bill" Salter on acoustic bass with A.R. and Newman Taylor Baker on washboard and percussion.

Joe Lovano - Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano stands alone at the vanguard of large and small group jazz. In 2015 alone, two major ensembles will be on display: Joe Lovano’s Village Rhythms Band – a natural extension of the tenor giant’s evolving body of work where West African influences and party atmospheres connect New York City and Lagos, and the acclaimed Wayne Shorter-influenced Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas Quintet: Sound Prints. Rudresh Mahanthappa - Few musicians share the ability of alto saxophonist/composer Rudresh Mahanthappa to embody the expansive possibilities of his music with his culture. What has materialized is a sound that hybridizes progressive jazz and South Indian classical music in a fluid and forward-looking form that reflects Mahanthappa’s own experience growing up a second-generation Indian-American. The current manifestations of that trajectory include his latest project Bird Calls, which issued its first release in February 2015. Mahanthappa has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and numerous commissions. Myra Melford - Pianist, composer and Guggenheim fellow Myra Melford draws inspiration from a vast spectrum of cultural and spiritual traditions and artistic disciplines. In 2013, she released her first solo recording, Life Carries Me This Way and premiered Language of Dreams, her most ambitious project to date, combining narration, dance, and video with music for her quintet, Snowy Egret, which has a new release out in March 2015 (Enja/Yellowbird). Michael Mwenso - Jazz vocalist and bandleader Michael Mwenso is a fixture of the Uptown jazz scene but is making his way downtown with his signature style and vocal chops. From a young age, the Sierra Leone-born singer has held his own with artists like James Brown in addition to playing and leading his own bands around the world.

Jazmine Sullivan - After a short hiatus from music, eight-time GRAMMY Award nominee Jazmine Sullivan tells her story in all its unfiltered, unabridged, and unrestrained glory on her third full-length album, Reality Show. The Philly native served as the primary writer on each of the album’s twelve tracks, and for the first time, she also assumed the role of executive producer. As a result, Reality Show encompasses everything from R&amp;B and Soul to Hip Hop, Funk, and even a little Disco. Jordan Bratton - You’ve got to understand music’s traditions in order to reinvent them. Jordan Bratton certainly does. The 18-year-old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer possesses a prodigious grasp on all aspects of music. His critically applauded 2014 mixtape, The Grey Area, and debut single “Danger 3” are wholly the products of his personal production and songwriting vision. Armed with a multitude of talents, he stands poised to truly break ground.
