Last weekend we gathered a small group of friends and artists for the first of what we hope will be many live video sessions at Room 17, a warehouse recording studio in Brooklyn.

Rafiq Bhatia adds another date to the string of buzzed-about performances begun earlier this year at Winter Jazzfest.

Earlier this week, Cone released “Come Back,” a debut album casting the vocalist’s intent confessionals with a fine balance of tangy Americana and soul-inspired flourish.

Meanwhile, across the East River, at Music Hall of Williamsburg, Philadelphia’s cracked-folk contingent Man Man will headline a bill « Read the rest of this entry »
