Snarky Puppy Shows ‘How To Make Music For Both Brain And Booty’ In New Short Film

first_imgNPR‘s Jazz Night In America series follows Snarky Puppy through the band’s hometown of Dallas for a sold-out show at The Door. The nearly 40-minute documentary features live performances, interviews from band members, their professors at the University of North Texas, and other musical collaborators, as viewers get a glimpse into the touring aspect of the two-time, Grammy-winning gigantic instrumental band.“Hearing things wrong can be a moment of opportunity,” explains bassist and bandleader Michael League about his song-writing process. Specifically speaking of how the song “Shofukan” was first imagined, when he misheard the rhythm of a pop song while walking through a department store, later recording his misunderstanding into a masterpiece we are all now familiar with. League’s explanation on the folkloric grooves versus the American tendencies to mathematically analyze music perfectly bridges the understanding of what makes Snarky Puppy’s compositions so interestingly groovy. It truly is “Music for Both Brain and Booty.”Watch the clip where he explains the thought-processing of “Shofukan” here:  Snarky Puppy: ‘Music For The Brain And Booty’“Hearing things wrong can be a moment of opportunity.” Watch a documentary on Snarky Puppy. http://n.pr/21uVCYyPosted by NPR Music on Thursday, February 25, 2016 And the full video, courtesy of NPR, can be viewed here:last_img read more

Three things we learned from the Premier League

Three things we learned from the Premier League

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool’s lead at the top of the table extended to 22 points as their procession towards the title continued thanks to a 4-0 win over Southampton and Manchester City’s latest defeat at Tottenham.Victory for Spurs edged them ahead as the closest challengers to Chelsea for a place in the top four, on another weekend when the rest of the chasing pack stumbled.Here, AFP Sport looks at three things we learned from the Premier League weekend:Guardiola must prove greatness with wasteful CityManchester City had 18 shots to Tottenham’s three, 67 percent possession, were awarded a penalty by VAR and still contrived to lose 2-0.In isolation, Pep Guardiola could write off this defeat as a freak, but it has been a consistent tale of City’s season.Guardiola now must prove his status as one of the greatest coaches in the game by finding solutions before another Champions League campaign is ended by the same failings.City travel to a revitalised Real Madrid in 24 days’ time for the first leg of their last-16 tie.Guardiola admitted this weekend that despite two Premier League titles, his time at City will be judged a failure without winning the Champions League.On current form it is hard to imagine City being crowned European champions for the first time in Istanbul on May 30.Top-four contenders consistently inconsistent As Frank Lampard bemoaned Chelsea’s lack of transfer window activity and defended his decision to drop the world’s most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, it was easy to imagine the Blues were adrift in mid-table rather than holding onto a prized place in the top four.Chelsea’s 2-2 draw at third-placed Leicester ensured they retained a small cushion over their rivals, but Lampard’s angst was born from the knowledge that his team’s erratic form makes it far from certain they will hold onto fourth.It has been that kind of season for the teams hoping to join Liverpool and City in next season’s Champions League.Manchester United, held to a 0-0 draw by Wolves, have spent most of the campaign lurching from one crisis to another, while Arsenal remain 10 points behind Chelsea after a 13th draw in 25 league games at Burnley.Into the void stepped Tottenham as their victory over City moved them within four points of Chelsea.Twenty’s plenty for LiverpoolLiverpool equalled a Premier League record with a 20th straight home win at Anfield as they overcame some stiff resistence from Southampton with four second-half goals.That is one of just many records that seem set to tumble as Jurgen Klopp’s men charge towards a first top-flight title in 30 years.Liverpool’s 22-point lead is the biggest any side has ever enjoyed at the top of the Premier League and they have now taken a remarkable 100 points from the last possible 102.Win their next six games and the title will be won even before they visit City on April 4 and given the defending champions’ struggles, it is likely the crowning of the new champions will come in mid-March.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Man Jumps As Flames Engulf Red Bank Home

first_imgBy John Burton |RED BANK — Firefighters on Thursday afternoon battled a blaze that engulfed a West Side residence.Borough fire companies responded to a call that came in at approximately 3:09 p.m. reporting a fire at 16 Leonard St. That call indicated there was an individual trapped inside the structure, said Police Capt. Michael Clay.Clay said that as of 4 p.m., there was a report of one injury from a male in the home and trapped on the second floor. His injuries were not deemed life threatening and the victim was transported to an area hospital for observation, Clay said.Neighbor Jake Rademacher alerted his neighbor to the fire. Photo by Jay CookJake Rademacher, whose Bridge Avenue backyard abuts the Leonard Street property, said he was taking out the trash and smelled smoke. “And then I heard a big ‘whuump’ and saw the flames start shooting out of the building.”Rademacher said the flames quickly grew and spread through the two-story building with an attic. “And I then saw him in the second story window,” Rademacher said of the victim. “I told him to jump because you ain’t got a choice.”Fire Marshal Stanley Sickels, who was on the scene, said the fire moved quickly in the older home. “It was moving up through the walls into the attic,” he said, as firefighters continued on Thursday afternoon to quell the still visible flames that appeared to have destroyed the home.Sickels wouldn’t speculate at this time as to the fire’s origin or cause. “We’re still gathering statements, getting information for the ongoing investigation,” he said.Borough fire companies received support from Middletown’s River Plaza fire company and from Sea Bright and Fire Haven departments.According to borough tax records, the home is owned by William and Shirley Sharkey.last_img read more
