Sir Stevie: Tribute to you 2021/01/08

 

He never thinks that he is a soul artist or a R&B artist himself, he had already mastered every single element in African American Pop music during his twenties and combined them into his own musical language. His mastery of the new generation of electronical keyboards brought him the representation and spirits of a rock star. His singing always reminds people of those highflying greats in Jazz, his sentiments in music and honesty came from what he had been immersed in ever since he joined the church when he was young.

 

Stevie Wonder thinks that, no matter soul, or R&B, it is only a nametag. When you are unsettled, your music is dark, but when you are happy it may be bright. Just like people categorise many things, their lives, their relationships, their drinks, or even their love. Categorisations always are what limit people, more so in the music world. On January the 8th, in the evening, let us all enjoy the limitless music created by Sir Steve.

 

 

Rhythm Party 2021/01/09

Music is like a river; it branches and branches out ever so often. We try to set up dams, but they often fail. The origin of Blues is full of desire, in WWII, it surpassed the limits of race, and reached the north far, far away from the south, to get to Detroit, Chicago and Los Angeles. When it reached those industrial cities, where it is full of horning and machine, the deepened voice of blues then disappears, it then increased Saxophone, Drums, and piano. The evening on the 9th, Jazz Pentagon will take us onto this music train, fly through its rhythm changes.
