Houghton Park and the surrounding streets of North Long Beach came to life with live music, dancing and food trucks on Saturday as day two of Uptown Jazz Fest continued through the weekend.

The event kicked off at 9 a.m. with a block party on Artesia Boulevard, which was closed to vehicular traffic for residents to walk around. The block party also featured a stage for live music.

The heart of the party was in Houghton Park, the premier location for the annual event. Saturday’s musical performances included Biscuits & Gravy, DW3 and non-stop music from DJ Mr. Quick.

The event marked a return to in-person activities after last year’s jazz festival had to be streamed online due to COVID-19. This year may have allowed the event to take place in person, but some rules were in place. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test had to be presented to enter the public dance floor in front of the main stage and families were asked to wear masks.

Lawrence and Maria Taylor are local residents near the park and said it was their first time attending the event. “My family and I came out to support the city,” Lawrence said. “It’s a tough time right now so everyone needs it. Just have fun while enjoying.

Bis known as one of the voices of the mysterious pre-soul group Sault, Cleo Sol delivers their second solo album with little context. Three figures adorn the cover: Sol, a baby and the photo of a young woman on the wall behind. We have to assume that the three are related and that Mother, the continuation of the 2020s Pink in darkness album, talk about these relationships.

Cleopatra Zvezdana Nikolic named herself “Sol” in homage to her mother’s half-Spanish heritage; her mom’s advice was a presence on the 2019 track Sweet Blue. These 12 new songs pay more homage to support in hard times, while one of the two great eight-minute centerpieces, One Day, promises to “always be there for … my angel, born in June.” Sol is mothered, and mothering.

You suspect that this care is not limited to people who are genetically related. Sol delivers broader encouragement, analysis of formative memories, and pleas to everyone’s faith in her light tones, as producer Inflo weaves orchestral soul jazz around her. Stevie Wonder is a magnet here, but Sol sings with a relaxed, delicate intimacy that can make Mother you feel like you are getting involved in private conversations. It’s a quieter, more spacious, introverted job than Pink in darkness.

“When I was little, (Harrison, Jr.) was the coolest man on the planet,” Scott said Tuesday night after arriving in Detroit. “I wanted to be around him as much as possible, and initially wanted to play the saxophone like him, but I realized that if I played the trumpet, I would probably have a more complete training because at some point, if I was good enough, I would be able to go out on the road with him and his group.

SCRANTON, PA – This is the 16th annual downtown Scranton Jazz Festival at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel and the hotel’s Trax Patio was filled with jazz music and jazz fans.

Richard Kunkle and Deborah Sax came from West Chester for the weekend.

Kunkle is originally from Scranton and owns a home in Wayne County.

“We’ve been coming to the Scranton Jazz Festival since 2007 and every year differently,” Kunkle said.

This year is definitely different; last year the pandemic canceled the jazz festival and even this year was uncertain.

But when Pennsylvania lifted its COVID restrictions in May, organizers decided to go but with a few changes.

There is no main stage at the Radisson, just the Trax Patio band and the other jazz bands performing simultaneously at downtown businesses.

And everything is free, there is no charge to enter any place.

“The biggest part too was being able to support the local pubs, cafes, retailers here in downtown Scranton,” said Sarah Effertz, executive director of the festival.

“Business is good for everything, you know. I always love when things are good for everyone and the music is fun, ”said Jay Spivak, who listened to the music at Railyard.

Organizers call it a jazz march, encouraging people to visit as many places as possible.

COLTS offers free tram rides.

Railyard Manager Kayla Jordan is expecting a great weekend.

“My staff are really excited. You know, we’re a family here, so like we’ve planned this out, ”Jordan said.

The Downtown Scranton Jazz Festival takes place all weekend with a fireworks display on Saturday at 9 p.m.

When Matt Magerkurth tells someone he plays the cello, it’s common for the person to respond that the cello is their favorite instrument, he reveals. It is also often preceded or followed by a statement about the beauty of the instrument’s sound.

“And while that is true, although it is an exceptionally beautiful instrument, I am also very interested in its ugly, thorny, loud and percussive elements,” admits Magerkurth.

It is this versatility that motivates his exploration of the instrument, he says.

“This semi-classic which is also fused with this kind of edgy and noisy approach to the instrument. [I love] the fact that I can play a groove on it and then rock and play a really delicious melody. “

Magerkurth dives head first into this dichotomy in his debut album, “Amends”. The Trillium Salon series will host an album release concert Saturday at Perrodin Supply Co. in Springdale.

“I kept finding myself improvising on the instrument, finding different techniques, sounds and passages that I was really exploring,” Magerkurth recalls of his time in Tulsa when studying composition. .

As he continued recording his solo work, Magerkurth landed on a technique that allowed him to envision music as a performer, but also as an improviser, which he shares.

“In classical music, they’re two different things, while in jazz, it’s really the same thing,” he explains. Starting with a story arc for each song, Magerkurth knows there are particular beats he wants to hit throughout. But the journey to get there is different each time, making each performance an exploration.

“And especially from a texture point of view, when you’re just a solo instrument, as I often am when I play them live, sometimes you need extra reps or extra noise or something else. ingredient to push you into the next place, ”he points out.

“I mentioned earlier that I was studying to be a composer, and I guess I’m a composer. But the feeling that I’ve always hated the most about being a songwriter is being in a performance and feeling stuck; be able to hear holes in the room. This is something that is much more evident to me as a performer than to me as a composer sitting down with pencil and paper, or notation software. So my own process of being a composer / performer of this music, it allows me to avoid that kind of helpless feeling and help make music as intuitively as possible. “

Going on stage with another group in a one-off sit-in role can come with a few musical tests.

Four members of the local band Empire Strikes Brass are working around these challenges to put on a great show with Big Something.

“They are difficult. We want it to sound great and have a perfect show, ”said Empire Strikes Brass founder and saxophonist Paul Juhl. “There’s always an added challenge when you’re not always playing with people, but I think everyone’s ears will open a bit more and listen to each other a bit more. It’s so much fun to get up and play with one of your favorite bands.

Big Something is a funky six-piece improvisation group from Burlington who have released six albums over the years. The band will perform 10:30 p.m. shows at Salvage Station on August 6-7.
