#1 "COUNTRY" by Cassanova Marcell ft. Trully Polk & New Cupid

Carolyn D. BakerLet’s start the 2021 year on a positive note as the previous one has been a devastating experience for the world. This is a time to reflex on the journey and the changes we had to make in our lives to get though. As everyone have been impacted with the Covid-19 and the Presidential Elections and much more, changing many lives in business, work, health, and relationships to mention a few.

I found myself living life to the fullest with all the Blessing from my Father above, with attending a few events with safe distancing and face mask wearing in full force, as a matter fact I wear my mask without thinking twice, it has become apart of my wardrobe with my holiday theme going on. But on the other side of making humor on the situation I have seen so many go though it a little bit harder than others especially mentally, on top of the already over population of cases out there not getting treated. The domestic problems plaquing our families and assaults on the rise, it will take a lot of support from our families, community, and cities to help fight the problems and get some order, if possible.

The new growth and progress are in the making for brighter years to come and if we all work together to get there, it’s right there in the horizon. Support is one factor in the progress of building a stronger industry than before as to benefit the artist in all the industries of entertainment, fashion, and all the arts from all realms. So, Come On Everybody Let’s Get 2021 Off To A Fabulous Start

Born in Mansfield, Louisiana, Hall attended Crispus Attucks middle school and later moving to Houston, Texas where he attended Worthing High School, where under the direction from the school band director Sammy D. Harris, tuned his interest to jazz. Hall soon attended Texas Southern University where he studied piano and trumpet, with achieving many soloist awards in big-band competitions. He soon married Lula E. Baker-Hall in 1969, and with so much in common she soon became his road manger. Arnett Cobb soon after discovered him and took him to see Duke Ellington. When the two were introduced, Ellington asked, "How come you're not playing in my band?

Hall joined the Duke Ellington Orchestra on June 8, 1973. After Ellington died the following year, Hall continued to play with the band under the direction Ellington's son, Mercer Ellington. After Mercer Ellington died in 1996, Hall conducted the Duke Ellington Orchestra for one year after and remained the replacement director when Paul Ellington was unable to perform. During his time with Mercer Ellington, Hall was given Cootie Williams's last trumpet by Williams himself before he died and was known as the inheritor of Williams's style of playing

Later in life, Hall was music director at Liberty Baptist Church. With a background in gospel music, he was able to lead the Duke Ellington's Third Sacred Concert in 2001, in which he performed as bandleader with a two hundred-voice choir.[4] Wishing to see more of Ellington's works performed in churches, he brought performances to Yugoslavia to an audience of three thousand in a cathedral, with the music broadcast to an audience of ten thousand people outside the church.

The spirited vocal/trumpet duo Sounds of A&R is excited to announce the release of their third studio album, Questions Left Unanswered. An amalgam of lively original compositions and cover arrangements of time-tested classics, this new release presents evocative compositions that speak deeply to the paths of both artists, and the struggles of the moment. Sounds of A&R is fronted by the effervescent April May Webb, and soaring (no pun intended) trumpeter Randall Haywood, and includes April May’s siblings Jacob Webb on bass and Nathan Webb on drums, plus guitarist Charlie Sigler, pianist James Austin and harpist Riza Printup.

Sounds of A&R are not just musical partners, but in life as well. The paths of vocalist April May and trumpeter Randall Haywood first crossed at Moore’s Lounge, a club located in New Jersey. April May took the stage to sit in and the chemistry was instant. Partners ever since, April May and Randall’s union produce a sound that is sincere and hopeful in nature. The duo has made their mark on the New York City scene, wowing audiences on stages such as Dizzy’s, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Birdland Jazz Club, Minton’s Playhouse and the legendary Apollo Theater, often alongside legendary drummer T.S. Monk. 2019 saw a stellar year for the duo as they were named “Best Jazz Group” at the NYC Readers Jazz Awards presented by Hot House Jazz Magazine and Jazzmobile. Earlier that year, S.O.A.R. released their single “The Road to Love’s Destiny” which landed on the Billboard Contemporary chart.  

These accolades only emboldened the duo to dig deeper, and S.O.A.R. does just that on Questions Left Unanswered. The album’s title track is an illustration of the unknowns of life. April May suggests: “Each day is a mystery that is left to be discovered. The decisions we make shape the trajectory of our lives but there are also things that just simply happen and we must learn to navigate these unknowns, it’s a part of our life’s journey. The joys and pains of life make life worth living and not having all of the answers is what keeps our minds open to endless possibilities.”

 Continue ...            

Q and

Eloquent passages sung by April May are juxtaposed by a repeated melodic refrain played in unison by Randall. This piece features a masterful solo from Randall Haywood and a stunning vocal performance by April May that reminds one of iconic recordings from jazz luminary Abbey Lincoln.

Another original composition, “They Keep Saying No” speaks to the challenges of following an entrepreneurial spirit into entering the music industry. Flirting with the harmony and melodic passages of “Old Devil Moon”, the duo offers a bright-hued lament on the realities of being a modern day career musician. The song features a dazzling scat solo from April May, demonstrating an incredible acuity for melodic invention.

“Moments When I Was A Kid” is co-written by Randall and April May. A period of syncopated bass ostinato and bright guitar comping sets the tone for a touching reflection on childhood. Imagery of the innocent moments of childhood is conjured by April May’s lyrics and Randall’s expressive improvisation.

The album features arrangements of a variety of popular songs from a wide array of influences. For instance, this album has renditions of the R&B hit “Killing Me Softly”, the popular country song “Jolene”, the gospel hymn “As the Deer” and a large helping of jazz with such standards as “Social Call” and “I’m Old Fashioned”. Randall notes “each of the compositions that we chose to cover played a vital role in our musical development.” April May’s voice and Randall’s horn bring the same warmth and refinement to these classics as they do the original compositions that grace this album.

Aside from their musical innovation, April May and Randall also run an online vintage clothing store, SOAR Vintage Boutique. “Soar Vintage Boutique is a part of S.O.A.R. / Sounds of A&R’s Brand. Fashion and visual artistry has always been a part of the story of who we are. It is an outward expression of an inner feeling. We coordinated the colors of our clothing and set design to match the mood that we want to illustrate both in live performances and virtually,” said April May. Items from the boutique grace the duo on the album’s cover image.

S.O.A.R. takes the listener on an artistic journey through an array of colors in modern jazz. Pulling inspiration from the deep love they have for one another, S.O.A.R. expresses that love through beautifully crafted compositions with fresh innovative arrangements, and poignant lyrics. Questions Left Unanswered will be available as a digital download on all platforms, and as a compact disc available via their website: www.SoundsofAandR.com

MOTOWN MUSEUM, STATE OF MICHIGAN
RECOGNIZE JANUARY 20

MARVIN GAYE “WHAT’S GOING ON” DAY

Jan. 20, 2021, marks 50 years since release of iconic Marvin Gaye song

DETROIT, Jan. 19, 2021 – Motown Museum is celebrating the history of one of Motown’s greatest artists with help from the State of Michigan. Governor Gretchen Whitmer has officially recognized January 20 as “What’s Going On” Day, as Wednesday, January 20, 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Gaye’s iconic “What’s Going On” single. The museum will use this commemorative date to kick off several moments in 2021 celebrating the half-century anniversary of the release of Gaye’s impactful What’s Going On album. Motown Museum Chairwoman and CEO Robin Terry made the announcement.

“This is a significant moment for the museum, our community, and Motown fans all around the world, and we’re thankful that the State of Michigan has partnered with us to recognize this date as we begin our year-long celebration of this album,” said Terry. “As we come out of a very challenging year, it’s more important than ever to reflect on Marvin Gaye’s prolific and timeless lyrics to inspire a spirit of connection in 2021. “What’s Going On” Day will serve as a reminder of his impact and legacy—bringing awareness to the issues of today, encouraging active dialogue between groups and individuals and acknowledging the important role Motown music continues to play in uniting us all.”

Originally inspired by a police brutality incident witnessed by Renaldo "Obie" Benson, the song—recorded at Motown Studios A and B in Detroit—was composed by Benson, Al Cleveland, and Gaye, and produced by Gaye himself. It was also the first album to credit Motown’s in-house studio band, The Funk Brothers. “What’s Going On” would go on to sell millions of copies and became Gaye’s second-most successful Motown song to date, after “Let’s Get It On.” The groundbreaking album was named No. 1 on Rolling Stone’s 2020 list of ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time.’

Governor Gretchen Whitmer recognized the day in a State of Michigan special tribute.

“Having this tribute on the calendar provides us with an important moment—one where we can come together as a unified state to pause, reflect and appreciate the need for ideas, perspective, love and understanding. These are values that mean more today than ever before,” said Whitmer. “Through the recognition of “What’s Going On” Day, we hope to bring awareness to Marvin Gaye’s profound words as his timeless music remains in our hearts and minds and continues inspiring generations to come.”

As the first step in commemorating What’s Going On and its legacy this year, Motown Museum is asking fans to visit its social media channels—Facebook, Instagram and Twitter—to join the conversation and share the personal impact the lyrics of “What’s Going On” have made in their lives. In addition to the statewide tribute on January 20, the museum will honor Gaye’s groundbreaking album and words throughout the year with a series of upcoming virtual celebrations, signature events and an infusion of Gaye’s legacy in its 2021 programming lineup, including its spoken word poetry competition, Motown MIC: The Spoken Word, and its singing competition, AMPLIFY: The Sound of Detroit.
