This Saturday, KNKX presents the 100th episode of The New Cool. This weekly two-hour adventure through the world of cutting edge modern jazz was inspired and informed by our listeners, and wouldn't be here without your support. THANKS! We'll celebrate with more new releases, exclusive studio session performances, and a few of the world-class musicians in our own backyard who continue to make this music their own.

Though each member of Industrial Revelation are in high demand these days, they always find time to get together to make music. As they prepared for their first headlining show at the Neptune Theatre last week, the band told me how excited they were to unleash new music in the new year.

The Earshot Jazz Festival returns this weekend, and the fine folks at Earshot continue their tradition of presenting world class live jazz that stretches the definition of this music to its limits. In other words, fans of The New Cool have plenty to be excited about. It's a different kind of jazz festival, one or two amazing shows nearly every night for more than a month - your only excuse for missing a show is because it's sold out. That will happen, so get your tickets now!

The country celebrates Independence Day on Tuesday, and seeing as jazz is a music based on freedom, why not celebrate jazz with KNKX a day early at our Jazz On A Summer's Day party at the Hiram M. Chittenden (Ballard) Locks Monday afternoon.

Genre-Bending Industrial Revelation In Concert

Feb 21, 2016

 

The popular Seattle quartet Industrial Revelation will be featured in concert on KPLU's Jazz Northwest on Sunday, February 21 at 2 p.m. Pacific. The quartet has earned a reputation for combining jazz, hip hop, electronica and other styles in music that has cross-cultural and multi-generational appeal. Their standing-room-only concert filled the Brotman Forum of the Seattle Art Museum in this month's Art of Jazz concert presented by Earshot Jazz and SAM. The concert coincided with the opening of the new exhibition by Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic.

Ahamefule J. Oluo was not doing well. After seven years of marriage, he was divorced, a single father and living in a basement apartment. He had a day job he hated. And though his night job of trying to make it as a musician and as a stand-up comedian was much better, all the juggling was wearing him down.
