Blue Note Jazz Festival:

Groove Theory / Soulive with Karl Denson / Riq & Rah with J.Period (Black Thought and Rahzel) / DJ ?uestlove

Produced by Jill Newman Productions 

At the age of 18, urban chanteuse, Amel Larrieux wrote and demoed a song, which led to her pairing with musician/producer Bryce Wilson to form the duo Groove Theory. The duo’s tunes, saturated with sounds of romance and sensuality were showcased in their breakthrough hit, “Tell Me,” which broke the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and the top five on the R&B charts. Soon after, the duo split with Wilson becoming a two time GRAMMY® winning producer as well as teaming up with legendary DJ, Junior Sanchez to form the electronic driven, Brobot. Larrieux went on to a successful solo career with her albums, Bravebird and Morning. Her newest album, Ice Cream Everyday is slated for release in 2012. However, it is Groove Theory’s sublime combination of Larrieux’s velvety vocals and the soulful sounds of Wilson that has fans buzzing. After the time apart, both artists have come into their own, creating new material and performances well worth the listen.
When brothers Neal and Alan Evans first invited guitarist Eric Krasno to get down at their Woodstock, NY studio, it was out of mutual love for the great soul-jazz organ trios of the 60’s and 70’s. They went on to form Soulive and released numerous records and recordings with acclaimed artists like Chaka Khan, Dave Matthews, Talib Kweli and John Scofield. Their musical relationships, speak volumes about how versatile they are. Jazz, hip-hop, rock, soul, funk, R & B, Blues – musically, there is not much the band hasn’t done over their 12 year career span. Their most recent release Rubber Soulive, is the trio’s twist on Beatles classics and received rave reviews.
As The Roots’ drummer and joint front-man, DJ ?uestlove is well known across the musical sphere. Whether known for the twelve albums The Roots produced or his performances with the band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, ?uestlove’s impact on music today is undeniable. Throughout his career, he has produced with icons such as Common, Al Green, and John Legend. He is also the associate producer of hit Broadway play Fela!, along with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and Jay-Z. His passion for music is eminent with talent in not only percussion, but production, DJ-ing, and dub video clips as well.
