The weather was just right as a crowd of Jazz enthusiasts gathered to experience the glorious and tireless musicianship of Justo Almario and his wonderful ensemble on May 2, 2008 at the Friday Night Jazz Series hosted by Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in Los Angeles, California.
Justo conducted a "sound check" with the standard, "All The Things You Are" that quickly captivated our attention. His attention to melody, harmony, and the essence of the tune during his warm up was exquisitely beautiful.
Mr. Almario humbly accepted the applause and whispered into his microphone with... Read More

After about three minutes, I became very aware that this wasn't going to be a typical "interview." No, without a doubt, I was having a "conversation." True, I was on the phone, but within that short time span, I quickly began to feel like I was just sitting in some highway diner, having breakfast and talking to an old friend. Arlo Guthrie is an engaging man with a great sense of humor and and more than a good portion of humility.
Arlo, first let me thank you for taking the time to talk with me. I know you are in the midst of a tour and free time is precious. How long are you on the road... Read More
Clutch might be the hardest-working band in the business. The band is constantly on the road (both stateside and overseas), and has one of the best live shows around. What makes a Clutch show so great?

From bands, to the records, to the labels, to my own attempts at making music I have spent most of my adult life obsessing and pursuing a phantom dream. The dream of creating something people would like. That would move people. Something that would change the world and at the same time loving others that are already... Read More
