Album Review:: Robert Glasper Experiment - Black Radio

"Experimentation For Meditation"

 I've always had an admiration of artists who attempt to cross the boundaries of their genre and venture out of their comfort zone to indulge in something new and exciting, not only for them but for their audience as well.

That being said, Robert Glasper''s Black Radio has definitely taken its place among the ranks of high quality music.

Album Review:: Common - The Dreamer, The Believer

If you’re a fan of Common, then by now you''ll most likely have noticed there is a pattern with him and his work: He''ll put out maybe one or two quality, dope albums in a row, then get comfortable and try to branch out a bit and do something experimental, then after an overall lukewarm reception from the fans, goes right back in and cranks out another gem to make up for the last one.

Concert Review:: Nicolay with The Hot at Nights

Arriving early at the Scarlet & Grey Café on that Monday night, found you facing a dimly lit stage set with blue lights shining perfectly on a drum set, saxophone, a few boards including a Roland Juno-60 and a Mac laptop. This small venue located on The Ohio State University campus at the corner of N. High St. and Norwich, started to fill in slowly to see the Grammy nominated producer Nicolay with The Hot at Nights. The folks slipping in seemed to be mainly comprised of music aficionados that really follow these artists, anxious to experience an intimate groove on this brisk January night.
