Bernard Purdie, Ivan Neville Added To Nth Power Show In NYC This Weekend

first_imgBeloved soul rockers The Nth Power are bringing an Abundance of music to New York this weekend, hitting the Highline Ballroom on June 12th. The show comes as part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival running throughout NYC in the month of June, and it wouldn’t be a proper Jazz Festival without some top tier collaborations.Fortunately for fans, the show will feature two great musicians, as funk legends Bernard Purdie and Ivan Neville will be on hand to lend their talents to the Nth Power grooves. Purdie is a pioneer of funk rhythms, keeping the beat steady behind the drums for Aretha Franklin, James Brown and countless others throughout his career. Meanwhile, Neville is NOLA royalty, keeping himself on the road with his uber-funky ensemble, Dumpstaphunk.The two will meet up with The Nth Power, who are fresh off their first full length album release, Abundance. The group is bringing it harder than ever, and we can’t wait to catch this show on Sunday! You can find more details here. Animus Rexx (ft. James Casey of Trey Anastasio Band) and The Reign of Kindo will be on as support.Want to win a pair of tickets for the event? Enter the contest below!

Bourdain exposes T&T crime stew

first_imgCelebrity travel guide Anthony Bourdain is not very popular in parts of Trinidad and Tobago, according to the Trinidad Guardian newspaper.Bourdain went to the country recently as part of his ‘Parts Unknown’ series which airs weekly on CNN. Usually, he features the leisure spots of countries he visits; not so, this time.“His recent documentary on T&T, which should have been an opportunity to showcase local food and culture, unfortunately turned out to be more of a crime documentary on the country,” said Opposition Senator Daniel Solomon. “It tended to focus a lot on crime. At the end of it one had to ask, had we not been Trinidadians looking at that video, would we have wanted to come to T&T under those conditions?” Solomon pointed out in an address to the Senate on June 27.“It was a sad indictment on T&T… we have to look at the message we’re sending out on behalf of T&T ,”she added.Solomon referred to the video while debating an Opposition motion calling on the government to deal with another year of unabated crime. Bourdain’s hour-long expose aired on CNN June 25.The most scathing part of his presentation followed the show in which Bourdain spoke to host Anderson Cooper about the dangers of living in Trinidad and Tobago. Solomon said Bourdain noted there were 460 murders in 2016 and that the capitol Port-of-Spain’s murder rate was higher than those in three major American cities: Detroit, Oakland and Chicago.She conceded that, “The tragic part was a lot of it was accurate. It overshadowed everything beautiful about T&T; the doubles, Carnival, the food, our culture —T&T’s beauty.”Solomon was even more ominous when she addressed growing talk of her country becoming a recruiting center for ISIS.“It’s only a matter of time before an attack happens in T&T ,” she warned.last_img read more
