      Yes, I'm back and Lisa and I are married now,
      No, it wasn't me sending the emails while I was on my honeymoon - I literally didn't check email once. Shanta held it down.
      Yes, I am drowning in unread/unresponded correspondence.
      So, consider this a group thanks to everyone who sent nice notes of congratulations to me and Lisa, and apologies if it takes me a while to respond to any emails.

      AMADOU AND MARIAM
      TWO SHOWS ONLY
      Monday, August 8th - 9:30pm (SOLD OUT)
      Monday, August 8th - 11:30pm

      Amadou & Mariam celebrate the U.S. release of their acclaimed Dimanche à Bamako ("Sunday in Bamako") produced by the Parisian Superstar Manu Chao.   The album is already a critical darling:  the Guardian Unlimited calls it "a great pop record"; Billboard says it's "remarkably alluring"; Entertainment Weekly suggests that "their peppy new polycultural release... is bound to attract".

      Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia have been making music together since they first met and fell in love at the Institute for Young Blind People in Bamako, Mali's capital, in the mid-1970s. They have been married and performing as a duo since 1980. While their music is based in a Malian-style blues, it has evolved to include a diversity of styles: French folk, Cuban son, reggae and hip-hop, among others. Their success has recently grown beyond Mali's borders to other African countries and Europe.

      The album, which was released in France earlier this year, has been a major breakthrough for the duo, reaching the top of the French album chart, earning a Gold certification, and winning a Les Victoires de la Musique award, the French equivalent of a GRAMMY.

      Charlie Gillett, BBC broadcaster and critic, puts it best:  "There are going to be many people who will find they have three copies of this album by the end of this year: one that they bought themselves, the other two given by people who'll say 'I heard this and thought this is the kind of thing you like.' And there will be people who will themselves have bought three or four copies to give to friends, saying 'I know you've sworn you'll never like an album not in English, but this is the one to win you over'."

      SPECIAL 11:30 SHOW
      FEATURING DJ JOAQUIN 'JOE' CLAUSSELL

      Seamlessly blending African and Brazilian rhythms, jazz riffs and rock guitar, Joaquin 'Joe' Clausell continually produces innovative fusions of danceable world music.  From his Friday night jam sessions at the illustrious vinyl shop Dance Tracks to his collaboration with Francois K and Danny Krivit at  the legendary underground party Body & Soul, to his latest party, Sacred Rhythm, Clausell continues to deliver deep, soulful, global music that uplifts and inspires.

      ISSA BAGAYOGO
      Friday, August 5th at 9:30pm

      Issa Bagayogo is one of the great, if tongue twisting, names in World Music.  Even in his homeland of Mali, they rarely use his last name; he's usually just called "Techno Issa".  Issa topped the charts in 2002 with his ground-breaking Timbuktu, an album that spawned a host of imitators hoping to match his compelling blend of Malian roots music and Western dance technology. No one has yet been able to pull off that fusion as convincingly and as elegantly as Issa did and now he's back to show how it's done.  Tassoumakan (meaning "Voice of Fire") is Issa's third full-length CD for Six Degrees and represents the maturing of an artist who has found a way to honor his country's great musical traditions while creating a truly global, modern sound.

      UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

      Thursday, August 4
      DOVEMAN: The Acrobat CD release
      Doveman plays lamp rock and insomnia pop, drawing deeply from downtown jazz, new classical, slowcore, debonair '60's pop and ambient music to create an unusual and delicate sound that The New York Press says "evokes that rare moment when nostalgia and sadness meet love".  Doveman's debut record, The Acrobat, is reminiscent of downbeat masters of melancholy like Nick Drake, Before and After Science-era Eno and the latter day Talk Talk and the music has the unmistakable ring of pre-dawn loneliness, as intimate as it is forlorn.

      SAMBA NEW YORK! with special guest MAGALI
       Samba New York! is a unique performance company that combines the exhilaration of Rio Carnaval with the urban immediacy of New York City. Samba New York! was founded and is directed by percussionist-ethnomusicologist Philip Galinsky, Ph.D., one of the foremost experts on samba in the US and the intricacies of every performance reflect a wider understanding of samba on the world's stages. Inspired by Brazil's famous "escola de samba" parade organizations and adapted to the setting of New York City, the group performs a wide variety of samba styles, as well as choro, bossa nova, and more.  Tonight Samba New York! Is ojined by Magali, the renowned samba singer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

      HOWARD TATE: Acoustic
      The legendary hard-driving soul singer, Howard Tate, like you've never seen him before, in an intimate, stripped-down, acoustic performance for the first time in NYC.  Tate, recently "rediscovered" after having fallen off the soul music radar for over three decades, has returned to the front ranks to claim his credit as "simply one of the greatest soul singers ever" (Bonnie Raitt). This setting, accompanied by piano and acoustic bass, will highlight his classic R&B artistry and showcase Tate's clear, sweet voice and signature falsetto, described by Elvis Costello as "the missing link between Jackie Wilson and Al Green." "...fire-and-brimstone soul workouts full of the falsetto cries, gospel-style repetitions, and other swooping decorations that made Tate's tenor so explosive in the first place. His vocal passion...was comparable to that of the greatest soul performers (Aretha Franklin, Sam Moore, James Brown, Solomon Burke)...Tate seems to be the missing diamond from the crown jewels of American soul music" - Boston Phoenix

      JOHN WESLEY HARDING'S LOVE HALL TRYST feat. KELLY HOGAN, NORA O'CONNOR and BRIAN LOHMANN
      The Love Hall Tryst were convened by John Wesley Harding, in order to record a very specific group of songs in a very specific way. His first step was to invite his favourite singer of all, Kelly Hogan. Hogan in turn suggested Nora O'Connor, her favourite Chicago singing partner, and Lo! with the drafting of Brian Lohmann to sing the low parts, The Tryst was complete. Tapes started to change hands: The Young Tradition, The Copper Family, The Watersons. Rehearsals took place in Chicago - things went well. The Love Hall Tryst recorded its first album ("Songs of Misfortune"). The album features the songs found in Misfortune, Wesley Stace's first novel - Wesley Stace being the real name of JWH - which was published to tremendous critical acclaim by Little, Brown in 2005. The songs are sung without accompaniment, bar the occasional guitar and hurdy gurdy, and include traditional songs, Harding originals, and everything in between. Apart from the Songs of Misfortune, the gig will feature a set by Harding, as well as songs by Hogan and O'Connor. Of the participants, the press has had many lovely things to say over the years. What is most important is that old friends Harding, Hogan, O'Connor and Lohmann are delighted to renew their acquaintance on stage. Harding and Hogan, once housemates in Atlanta, have sung many duets, including "It's All My Fault" (on JWH's album Awake), "It's Only Make Believe" (on the recent Bloodshot Records compilation Makin' Singles Drinkin' Doubles) and even "I'm A Little Bit Country" (on 20 More Explosive...Explosions!). O'Connor (Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire, The Black) and Hogan sing together in Hogan's Wooden Leg in Chicago. Number of Gruesome Deaths depicted in the Songs of Misfortune: 13. "John Wesley Harding may take his name from a Bob Dylan album and he's a modern-day folksinger, but with the biting, cynical observations in his songs and sharp sense of humor combined with winning melodies, he shows his true forefathers are Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe with a hint of Billy Bragg. Far from being a follower or strict revivalist, however, Wes draws on a wide assortment of musical influences, pushing the boundaries of the all-too-often formulaic singer/songwriter tag to create something all his own." -VH1.com www.johnwesleyharding.com
