(From All Music.com-Timothy Monger) Based in Seattle, the Dip are a large R&B ensemble with a colorful retro-soul sound and a work ethic that helped net them a large grassroots fan base in the late 2010s. They were able to translate their cathartic, high-energy live shows onto a pair of self-produced and self-released albums, 2015's The Dip and 2019's The Dip Delivers, and put up big streaming numbers in the process. They later signed with soul and Americana specialists Dualtone Records, which released the group's third album, Sticking with It, in 2022.
The Dip - Atlas OurVinyl Sessions
The Dip came together in 2013 at the University of Washington where its members were all music students in the jazz program. Housemates Jarred Katz (drums), Mark Hunter (bass), Tom Eddy (vocals), and their friend Jacob Lundgren (guitar) already had a history of writing songs together and they soon teamed up with a horn section comprising Brennan Carter (trumpet), Levi Gillis (tenor saxophone), and Evan Smith (baritone saxophone) -- who lived in a neighboring house.

Matthew Whitaker Tribute to Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World
In 2010, Matthew was a winning participant in the “Child Stars of Tomorrow” competition, as part of Amateur Night at the Apollo.

Amanda Miguel & Ana Victoria Verdaguer
"Siempre te Amare Tour"
Doors Open 7:00 PM
(From Last FM.com) Most popular in Mexico, which she eventually made her residency, Amanda Miguel is an Argentine-born Latin pop singer who rose to fame in the early '80s in collaboration with her husband, singer/songwriter Diego Verdaguer. Born June 1, 1956, in Gaiman, Chubut, Argentina, she moved to Buenos Aires at age 16 and studied music at the conservatory.

Shortly afterward she met Verdaguer and joined his group Mediterráneo, which also included Valeria Lynch prior to her solo career. Blessed with a strong voice and star power, it wasn't long before Miguel embarked on a solo career of her own with the support of Verdaguer as her songwriting partner and producer. After making her solo recording debut in 1979 with the single "Papá, Cuando Regreses," she made her full-length album debut with El Sonido, Vol. 1 (1981), a commercial blockbuster that spawned the smash hits "Él Me Mintió" and "Mi Buen Corazón." The success of her debut album warranted not one but two follow-ups, El Sonido, Vol. 2 (1983) and El Sonido, Vol. 3 (1984), and she closed out the decade with El Pecado (1987), later reissued with an abundance of bonus material, including early promotional videos.

Brahms’s glorious Third Symphony is one of orchestral music’s great masterworks, unfurling a seemingly endless cascade of gorgeous melodies. This weekend atJones Hall the Houston Symphony will be combining stormy passion and virtuoso fireworks with crystalline beauty and tender, heartfelt sentiment with Schumann’s Piano Concerto in the hands of phenomenal French pianist Lise de la Salle. The performances open with Lili Boulanger’s enlivening Of a Spring Morning.
Brahms: 1. Klavierkonzert ∙ hr-Sinfonieorchester ∙ Lise de la Salle ∙ Andrés Orozco-Estrada
(From Lise de la Salle.com) In just a few years, through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, 29 year-old Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today’s most exciting young artists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. Her playing inspired a Washington Post critic to write, “For much of the concert, the audience had to remember to breathe… the exhilaration didn’t let up for a second until her hands came off the keyboard.”
A native of France, Ms. de la Salle first came to international attention in 2005, at the age of 16, with a Bach/Liszt recording that Gramophone Magazine selected as “Recording of the Month.” Ms. de la Salle, who records for the Naïve label, was then similarly recognized in 2008 for her recording of the first concertos of Liszt, Prokofiev and Shostakovich – a remarkable feat for someone only 20 years old. Recent recordings offered works of Schumann and the Complete Works of Rachmaninoff for Piano and Orchestra with Fabio Luisi and the Philharmonia Zurich. The 2017-2018 season will see the release of a Bach-focused disc on Naïve including the Italian Concerto, the Liszt Fantasy & Fugue on the Theme B.A.C.H. and the Bach/Busoni Chaconne.
Lise de la Salle has played with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors. She made her London Symphony Orchestra debut with Fabio Luisi and in 2016 returned to the orchestra with Antonio Pappano. Luisi, who invited her to become the first Artist-in-Residence of the Zurich Opera in 2014, has also frequently featured Ms. de la Salle with the Vienna Symphony, including a performance in New York on the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center.
