New Mastersounds and Nth Power Members Build Excitement For New Project, JUKEJOINT

first_imgNext week in NYC, members of The New Mastersounds and The Nth Power will come together to form an exciting new project, JUKEJOINT. While we know anything from this funky group of cats is guaranteed to be next level, we wanted to know exactly what this new venture would entail, so we caught up with bandmembers Nate Edgar, Nikki Glaspie, Joe Tatton, and Jeffrey Lockhart to find out what to expect at American Beauty NYC on March 15th.“You can expect us to be going in on some classic funk and deeper ‘B’ side cuts, and taking some musical chances with them,” explains Edgar of the experimental new project. “We will be drawing on the funk and soul side of things, with a few surprises along the way, of course. We will be taking this new opportunity to explore not only a catalog of music we know and love, but also playing in a more free and open way than we do in our respective main projects.”“We’ve been hand picking some wicked old funk tunes and putting together a set that will really get people’s groove going!” adds Tatton.As for the origin of the concept, Edgar explains, “A juke joint, being a place where people get together to get down, socialize and hang is the vibe we hope prevails with the music we will be throwing out there from the stage. And in turn we hope it’s the vibe we get back from the crowd! It’s an informal, yet throwdown vibe we will be sharing.”“I bumped into Nate at a gig in New York last year,” Tatton adds, “and we both said straight away we should get something like this together. Both of these kinds of music are well represented in Nth Power and New Mastersounds but from different angles, so we knew it would be a great, fun project.”The bandmembers are all clearly stoked to play with one another, and expressed their excitement at the prospect.”Knowing Nate and Nikki well from Nth Power I was really excited at the prospect,” adds Tatton. “I think it’s only when you put a whole new thing together that it opens up everyone’s playing and there’s a real buzz in the music. I can’t wait to jam and am really pleased to be sharing the stage with these guys next week.”“Nikki and I have always loved Joe’s vibe and playing,” says Edgar. “He’s a beast and is one humble man as well. At times we garnish him with the same name The Nth Power refers to me sometimes…the ‘Silent Killer’. We’ve all heard each other play so many times and have gotten to know each other from a bystanders’ point of view. It’s going to be a blast to get in there and play with the sounds we are so familiar with.”“And then there is Jeffery Lockhart,” continues Edgar. “He is one of the baddest guitar players on earth and has been a huge influence on countless musicians. He is one of Nikki and my ‘teachers’, so to speak, from our days in Boston. He is just a beast and can really reach and go for things that move the music, the musicians on stage, and the people lucky enough to be there to hear him. We have both played countless gigs with this cosmic man and look forward to reuniting with him in JUKEJOINT to continue the vibes of growth and community. It’s not often one can bring musicians together like this, and we can’t wait to share it with y’all!”See what the hype is all about on 3/15!

Real in pole position after Asensio scores winner at Bayern

first_img“Everything is still possible, but we did ourselves no favours today.”Despite Bayern dominating possession and creating twice as many chances as Real, Madrid claimed a sixth straight win, dating back to 2012, over the Bavarians in the Champions League knockout stage.“We didn’t put our chances away, while Real took their two chances,” said Kimmich.“We were naive in front of goal, they are favourites now to go through, but we will give it our all in the return.” Munich, Germany | AFP | Real Madrid moved a step closer to a third straight Champions League title after substitute Marco Asensio hit the winner in a 2-1 semi-final, first-leg victory at Bayern Munich on Wednesday.The 22-year-old came off the bench to finish a counter-attack and complete the holders’ comeback win, giving Real the advantage for the return game in Madrid next Tuesday.“We knew what to expect, we did well and put in a good performance,” said Real captain Sergio Ramos.“There is still the return to come, but we’ll be very focused and we defended well, that was the main thing.” Bayern took the lead at the sold-out Allianz Arena through Joshua Kimmich, but Marcelo equalised just before the break and Asensio put Real ahead.“In the middle of the first half, we were playing well, but we lacked the killer instinct,” said Bayern skipper Thomas Mueller.center_img Real coach Zinedine Zidane pulled a surprise before kick-off by leaving both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema out of the starting line-up.Isco, who was replaced by Asensio at half-time, and Lucas Vazquez played either side of Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a subdued night up front in Munich.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Top class field for English women’s amateur

first_imgImage copyright Leaderboard Photography A top class field will gather at Wilmslow Golf Club in Cheshire next week for the English women’s closed amateur championship.Local hopes will focus on Bel Wardle from Prestbury, who already holds the English open title and will be targeting a special double.The 18-year-old (pictured) is one of a number of high-profile players in the 72-hole stroke play championship, which runs from Tuesday to Thursday, 17-19 July.Among them are three members of the GB&I Curtis Cup team: India Clyburn (Woodhall Spa), Annabell Fuller (Roehampton) and Sophie Lamb (Clitheroe).The trio, together with Lianna Bailey (Kirby Muxloe), will arrive at Wilmslow straight after this week’s European women’s team championship, where they are defending England’s gold medal.Another five players are representing England in the European girls’ team championship and will also be making the quick turnaround. They are Ebonie Lewis (Long Ashton), Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill), Hannah Screen (Berkhamsted), Caitlin Whitehead (Carus Green) and Amelia Williamson (Royal Cromer).The championship has attracted a strong entry from Cheshire with 10 players in the field, including six members of the county team. Alongside county champion Bel Wardle are Poppy Finlay (Vicars Cross), Lucy Jamieson (Heswall), Lauren Jones (Mellor and Townscliffe), Charlotte Leathem, who has the advantage of local knowledge as a Wilmslow member, and Emily McBurney (Delamere Forest).Also playing is Sue Dye of Delamere Forest, who is a past winner of England’s two senior women’s championships.Wilmslow is one of the oldest golf clubs in Cheshire and has been on its present site for over 100 years. The course is well known as a great test of golf and has hosted regional qualifying for The Open, professional events and those for top amateurs, including the 2013 English Women’s County Finals. 9 Jul 2018 Top class field for English women’s amateur center_img Tags: Amateur Championship, Wilmslow, Womenlast_img read more

Police are powerless to challenge ‘Sindicato’ (Part 2)

first_imgDear Editor,The 2018 Capital Expenditure for the Police Force is $11.5 billion, yet inexpensive necessities such as a few black tanks to store water; a 4-burner gas stove and kitchen utensils needed to cook meals for Police ranks and prisoners are some of the items in demand at the Matthews Ridge and Port Kaituma Police Stations. Yet little is done to improve the quality of life of Police Officers in these rural areas.Also in Matthews Ridge, there is an urgent need to build additional prison cells to accommodate prisoners during court days. At times, Police are forced to house between 18 to 26 prisoners in the two unsecured “lock-ups”, each measuring about five feet by six feet. Even prisoners deserve to be treated with some level ofMembers of the Security Committee and Parliament staff visiting Port Kaituma Police Stationcompassion.Although the Police have knowledge of a number of Venezuelan men working illegally in Region One (Barima-Waini), and organised prostitution rings involving Venezuelan nationals, they lack transportation and language skills to clamp down on these illegal activities.During the briefing, I was surprised to hear the Public Security Minister say, “I hear they gat some fella in the backlands hay does claim that he big, and he’s a big trafficker… and he gat he own boat and so on, and sey Police can’t do he nottin.” Yet Minister Ramjattan failed to ask the Police why is this “big trafficker” allowed to defy the laws of Guyana with impunity. Did the Minister report this to the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), the agency that was set up specifically to deal with organised crimes?My main concern with the news of this organised prostitution ring, is the need to prevent the spread of HIV and other social disease from putting an additional burden on our already fragile health services.A joint task force involving the Police and the Public Health Ministry is needed to address this looming crisis.No official policy decisions have been taken so far to address the problem of non-nationals in the region.The Police station at Port Kaituma is in dire need of a vehicle and a boat with a 200HP engine to patrol the riverine communities to restrict the flow of drugs and other illegal items, as well as to deter crime.At a forum, the Parliamentary Oversight Committee for the Security Sector held with residents before our departure, a businessman described Kumaka as a lawless town. Despite the presence of the Coast Guard, Police, immigration officials and the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) at the port of entry, he claimed that “everything does come into Kumaka to sell. Guns, cocaine, ammunition does be coming in to this port.” He said the Venezuelans are coming here looking for help, but at the same time, “they bringing all sorts of things here to sell.” He urged the Police and the GRA to do “fine checks” to prevent these illegal items from coming into Guyana because as he puts it, “We small community is being destroyed by what is happening here. In the Kumaka area where I live, some nights you can hear shooting.”A call was made to have a Police Station built in Kumaka to ensure a permanent Police presence in this high-crime area. Although Minister Ramjattan agreed that this is necessary, he cited the lack of resources to get this done. He was then informed that the people of Mabaruma are prepared to build a Police outpost at Kumaka. What they are asking is for Government to provide the manpower, vehicles and communication system to manage the outpost effectively.Minister Ramjattan welcomed this as “great news”. One of the concerns expressed by the Minister is the failure to recruit locals into the Force. He made several appeals for Indigenous people to enroll into the Police Service, “We’re still short of about 600 Policemen, but we’re not seeing Amerindians willing to join the Force.”Overall, this was a very successful fact-finding mission that hopefully will soon yield results to alleviate the threats facing our Police Officers in Region One.Sincerely,Harry GillPPP/C Memberof Parliamentlast_img read more

More pressure on pocketbooks

first_imgCHICAGO – Prices on everything from cereal and milk to soft drinks and red meat are on the upswing, due partly to the ethanol and biodiesel boom that is pushing up prices for corn and other commodities. High energy prices also remain troublesome, regardless of how high a gallon of gas climbs, and clothing costs are up this year, too. All that explains why Federal Reserve policymakers cited “uncomfortably high” inflation readings as being their biggest worry, according to minutes released Wednesday of their private discussions last month. “It feels like we could be in for a period of higher inflation at our stores and restaurants, for a year or two or three,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s in West Chester, Pa. The government reported Friday that wholesale prices rose 1 percent in March, mostly because of the biggest jumps in energy (3.6 percent) and gasoline (8.7 percent) prices since November. Adding to the pinch, apparel prices on spring merchandise have been up. And dairy economists predict the retail price of milk could jump 9 percent by fall. This may all sound familiar to those who remember experts fretting about food prices edging up a year ago while gasoline made its seasonal warm-weather surge. But Carl Tannenbaum, chief economist at LaSalle Bank in Chicago, says he’s concerned that productivity growth is slowing down, labor costs are rising, and food, energy, health care and education costs are on the move – all at the same time. The year-over-year change in the consumer price index, which is heavily influenced by energy prices, has been running at 2.7 percent to 2.8 percent, about the highest it’s been in the past year. The next report, for price changes in March, is due out Tuesday. “I’m not suggesting inflation’s going to rage out of control,” Tannenbaum said. “But especially given that the (Fed’s informal) target is 2 percent, we seem to be moving quite a bit away from it.” The good news for consumers is that the price rises may not be allowed to get too severe. Zandi said that if inflation shows any signs of accelerating significantly, the Fed likely would raise the overnight bank lending rate to slow growth and “knock the wind out” of inflationary pressures. “They would sacrifice growth in the interest of stopping inflation,” he said. “In the long run, you get more growth if inflation is stable and low.” An undesirable consequence of that, of course, would be higher borrowing costs, nudging credit-card and mortgage rates still higher. “The erosion of value when prices are higher because of interest rates is something that can’t be dismissed,” said Tannenbaum. “If you add half a percent to the rate Americans pay on a mortgage, that can adds thousands and thousands of dollars to the price of a mortgage on a 15- or 30-year loan.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Prices were flat for the month on a wider range of goods that excludes food and energy. While that suggests inflation is not yet in danger of spreading throughout the economy, the news offers little solace to many consumers already feeling greater pressures on their pocketbook spending. Jessica Parks, a work-from-home mom in Summerville, Ga., said she’s cut back on regular family outings to restaurants and bowling alleys. “There’s just no room in the budget,” said Parks, who works for a customer service company. “With children especially, the cost of clothing and everything and the grocery bill is getting worse.” After losing the family home in a fire last December, she bought replacement clothes for the kids online and at a local Wal-Mart and was appalled to find it cost $700 instead of the roughly $400 she was anticipating. The most recent shock came when a single cartful of groceries came to over $300. “It’s hard to deal with,” Parks said. “And a lot of people are asking why. Everything’s just getting to be outrageous.” One familiar irritant, the price of gasoline, has soared well above $3 a gallon in some places this spring. That could be temporary. The Energy Information Administration said in a forecast released Tuesday that the recent spike in prices should ease in coming weeks. last_img read more
