In the Spotlight: Dom Navarra featuring Kat Kyrris "If you knew" (Solid Ground Records CD Promo)
Here we have the first single lifted from Solid Ground's incredible "2012 Miami Sampler" by none other than Dom Navarra who teams up with vocalist Kat Kyrris on "If you knew", a wonderful production featuring classy saxophone, exquisite jazzy keys and heartfelt vocals by Kat Kyrris over an organic funk soaked backing. The remixes are courtesy of Danny Clark & Jay Benham who take the song to deeper grounds on their infectious yet soulful and jazzy interpretation, and William 'Reelsoul' Rodriguez whose celestial rework oozing with his beloved signature sound has become a favorite with lovers of soulful house music since being featured on the "Solid Ground 2012 Miami Sampler".
Even with the Winter Music Conference in full effect, we don't stop bringing you the latest in soulful house music... enjoy !!
If you enjoyed the first lecture in “The Unanswered Question” series, you’ll love this one too. Recorded back in 1976, Leonard Bernstein of Harvard continues his series of lectures, this time talking about musical syntax.

Music trade shows are typically full of sensible and useful instruments. They may not always represent something revolutionary, but people find homes for them in their musical lives. Of course, the world’s fair futurist in us may want something really different.
It was a real treat to get my hands on the AlphaSphere, a UK-engineered alternative instrument that maps pitch across touch-sensitive surfaces arrayed in a sphere. It’s what a lot of people were talking about at Messe when people asked “what’s cool?”, as friends rounded up friends to march them over to the booth. (It’s Hall 5.1, stand C27 if you happen to be there this weekend.) The rubbery round sensors are actually really fun to play. I’m not quite ready to sign up for all-spherical playing, but it was a crowd-pleaser, and it’s great to experience a different way of playing.
I hope to catch up with these lads from Bristol either in the UK or back in Berlin, but in the meantime, check out Keyboard Magazine’s video of the demo. It’s not as slick as the promo video, but you get a sense of the co-inventor’s real enthusiasm. (I shot the video as I’m contributing to Keyboard‘s Messe coverage.)
