The show features the legendary Soul Rebels Brass Band and special guest artists: alto saxophonist Donald Harrison, Jr., singer and trumpeter Kermit Ruffins and trombonist and singer Glen David Andrews. These artists are featured prominently in the acclaimed HBO Series, Treme, (pronounced truh-MAY), from David Simon and Eric Overmyer.
Spain's Baroque music icon, gambist, Jordi Savall, will appear with his son Ferran - a tenor who plays the theorbo, guitar and lute - at the New World Center on October 16, 2011.
 
In a rare joint appearance, the duo will perform a program titled Folias & Variations, Music Dialogues from Orient & Occident. In cooperation with Rise Kern Presents, and with the support of Miami's Spanish Consul General, Ambassadora Cristina Barrios, the duo from Barcelona will highlight this year's celebration of Spanish History Month.

"The amiable and sometimes deeply intuitive “Reggae’s Gone Country” (VP) ups the ante, with reggae crooners covering classic country songs. Tarrus Riley does right by the George Strait classic “The Chair,” Beres Hammond sounds winsome and comfortable on George Jones’s “He Stopped Loving Her Today” and Duane Stephenson turns Eddie Rabbitt’s “Suspicions” into the quiet storm jam it was always meant to be."
- Jon Caramanica, New York Times

“…tracks that blend the best of both genres… pretty tasty.”

I-WayneI Wayne, one of the top conscious roots reggae artists of this generation, is back with Life Teachings, his long-overdue album on VP Records, due October 11. With simplicity and grace, I Wayne’s angelic-tinged vocals flutter effortlessly across these 14 tracks filled with hair-raising lyrics and uncompromising conviction.

The intricately-crafted album features organic rhythms rife with rugged basslines and one-drop drumbeats, produced mostly by Patrick Z. Henry, who is responsible for 11 of the album's songs and I-Wayne's breakthrough hit "Can't Satisfy Her."
