Jazz Festival Returns To Rockaway

Despite looming threats of high winds and rain, brought on by a potential hurricane, more than a hundred beachgoers came out to Low Tide Bar at the Beach 97th Street concessions, on Saturday, Sept. 3, for the third annual Rockaway Beach Jazz Festival. Since its inception, the Jazz Festival has continued to attract world-class musicians from New York and beyond, to the shores of Rockaway Beach.

Weighing in with the Best of 2015

Although 2015 didn’t turn out exactly as director Robert Zemeckis predicted in his hit film Back to the Future Part II, it was still quite an exciting year.

So, we haven’t exactly figured out how to manufacture flying cars or self-adjusting clothing, but we did celebrate 50 years of the Grateful Dead; we witnessed “The Killer” Jerry Lee Lewis embark on his final U.K. Tour; we watched the Foo Fighters perform despite frontman Dave Grohl’s broken leg; we scoffed as presidential candidate Donald Trump fought with artists such as Neil Young, Method Man, and R.E.M.; and laughed at the many different parodies of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” music video.

But, like every year, 2015 had both its “ups” and its “downs.”

Following the Nov. 13 terrorist attack on a Paris nightclub, which claimed the lives of 89 victims attending an Eagles of Death Metal concert, people all over the world came together in a show of solidarity for the victims and their families.

This year, we also said goodbye to such incredible musicians as legendary Blues guitarist B.B. King, New Orleans R&B icon Allen Toussaint, former-Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland and Motörhead founder and frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

Now, as we prepare to bid adieu to 2015, let us reflect one more time on some of the best new music that this year had to offer.

Here are my picks for the Best albums of 2015 (by genre):

A Soulful Glimpse At ‘7 Summers’

Debuting at no. 1 on the iTunes Jazz charts, 7 Summers is the latest gem from jazz keyboardist Shaun Martin, who is best known for his Grammy Award winning work with gospel artist Kirk Franklin and the Brooklyn-based instrumental fusion ensemble Snarky Puppy.

Martin’s debut album, 7 Summers, is an incredibly unique and rhythmic composition that shows his stylistic range and gives listeners a glimpse into his musical process.

Growing up in Dallas, Texas, Martin began studying music at just 4-years-old, under the instruction of Carolyn Campbell—for whom he dedicated the last track of his my album “Closing Credits (A Requiem for Carolyn).” Today, he serves as the Minister of Music at Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas.
