Anyone that rides the L train in ‪#‎Williamsburg‬ has probably had the chance to catch ‪#‎Mountainanimation‬. They are two-pair troubadours Zack Orion (vocals, banjo, foot drums) and Scott Murphy (violin, electrified violin, fiddle, back up vocals) busking in our cities inner web of subway platforms, setting the hearts ablaze of fidgety train gawkers with their riotous percussive folk/grass roots music, that is simply, electric! This weekend synchronicity was abound, e9 curator Nadeem Salaam had just spent an afternoon with his cellist for his band writing music, an evening with three violinists friends when they stumbled upon the great cellist #PeterLewey performing wonderful classical arrangements under the Arch in Washington Square Park. As the cool languorous hints and spots of summer wafted in the air, these friends departed on their own mini journeys home. On the L train #IsraelHeller, a violinist experimental artist from Williamsburg, may have began to speak of some of the best performers he has seen on subway platforms, Nadeem mentioned a duo of the name Mountain Animation, Israel has never heard of them, but music had filled their hearts all the day long and how could any of them have left feeling any less satiated, til the Bedford avenue stop swallowed Nadeem into the abyss of people, it was time to walk home, with the lovelies of female companions they waved, “Goodbye! Till next time!” as suddenly, an aria from heaven, that could have halted Hercules or Sparta stopped the two, and whom else graced their ears but the rhythmic sensational pulsating tunes of Mountain Animation! The Gods were indeed very playful last night! Nadeem Salaam spoke about his ‪#‎Boweryhoustonmuralshow‬ for makemusicny with the two men, and that my friends is how the two fine troubadour gentleman agreed to perform this year at the ‪#‎Elevator9‬ Houston Bowery Mural Show!

Herbie Hancock is an American pianist, keyboardist, bandleader and composer as part of Miles Davis’s Second Great Quintet, Hancock helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the “post-bop” sound. He was one of the first jazz musicians to embrace music synthesizers and funk music (characterized by syncopated drum beats) The piece’s signature funky bass line was played by Hancock on an ARP Odyssey, as was one of the keyboard solos. The other keyboard solo was played on a Fender/Rhodes piano. (B♭m7 and E♭7 Dorian)

"The revolution will not be right back after a message about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people. You will not have to worry about a dove in your bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl. The revolution will not go better with Coke. The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath. The revolution will put you in the driver’s seat. The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised. The revolution will be no re-run brothers; The revolution will be live."
