Jesse Cook

Jesse Cook at the Wilson Center Guitar Competition

Saturday, August 16 - 2014

Canadian rumba flamenco artist Jesse Cook blends the exotic Spanish music form with elements of new age, jazz, and easy listening. Spending the summer of 2011 cottage hopping with his family, Jesse Cook set about writing new material for The Blue Guitar Sessions, his eighth studio album released in September 2011. For the Toronto resident, who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director, and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer, this record is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. Indeed, he has been a leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995’s Tempest. Among his many accolades, in 2008, he won the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazine’s prestigious Players’ Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia.

Cook has steered clear of anything resembling flamenco on this record, producing a sound that allows listeners to appreciate each musician’s contribution. The result is a captivating 14-track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones, which he had exhaustively searched for to replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer, and engineer.

Los Lobos

Los Lobos

Friday, October 3 - 2014

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984. Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well -- and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.

Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums, owns 26 top 20 singles and 17 top 10s and, as a songwriter, earned a Grammy for song of the year. He’s also the writer of fourteen number one songs. As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had plenty of highlights. His self-titled debut went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles. The follow-up, Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in Satisfied and Right Here Waiting. When both Rush Street and Paid Vacation went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history.
