The Paris based international trio known as Gotan Project is gearing up to release their third album next week, entitled Tango 3.0. This infectious mix of tango, breakbeats and minimalist electronica that has been the trademark of their last two albums is further realized and celebrated in this new release sweeping you into a sexy tangle of melody and rhythm. Come celebrate this new project and the arrival of spring at the exclusive listening party at the Thompson LES Pool, on Wednesday, April 21 at 7pm. Entrance is free with RSVP.
Tomorrow, April 17th, at Hiro Ballroom José James brings a touch of his Black Magic to New York City. After a 2 year absence from New York, José finally returns to his old home with 2 albums to his name (and a third soon to come) and a few world tours under his belt. He has been dubbed the 'jazz voice of a generation' by some and what a voice it is indeed. Don't miss your chance to catch him live tomorrow night performing the latest from his album Black Magic.
You can catch him on KCRW right now if you are tuned in and hear him talk about his show last night in LA and his upcoming show tomorrow night in NYC.
