UPCOMING AT NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY

New York Music Daily goes off script more than any other music blog in the universe! Spontaneity rules! Sorry not to update this page since September:: here’s what’s on tap for 2020, subject to change if there’s train trouble or spur-of-the-moment distractions:

  • The January concert calendar gets updated every day, but there will be a new one for February on 2/1
  • The top 100 songs of 2019 list is coming – really, truly, within about a week. A LOT of work went into that one!
  • some of the world’s most renowned jazz talent explore synesthesia
  • the surviving rhythm section of one of the great, orchestrally psychedelic bands of the 70s reunite with new members and a new album. Recycled, or a future worth remembering?
  • sharply funny/cynical punkish stuff from the Bushwick/Queens border
  • rising stars of the string quartet world tackle one of the most difficult, iconic pieces from that repertoire
  • noir-inspired jazz piano from Asia
  • the most politically woke, talented brother combo in all of jazz put out a new album
  • this female-fronted punk rock band made a live album at little tiny Pete’s Candy Store!
  • more messy, punky and 80s-influenced sounds from another female-fronted rock crew
  • is it time to get really cynical about the big January NYC jazz extravaganza that just gets more and more extravagant…and less and less about jazz?
