MOVITS

The Swedish hiphop/swing band Movits! are making their way through the music world, aiming for the top of the charts. A place they’ve already visited once with their ’08 debut “Äppelknyckarjazz”. After appearing on the American talk show “the Colbert Report” the album climbed to number one spots on both iTunes and Amazon charts. Notable here is that these were American charts and Movits! are singing in Swedish, a language quite far from the lingua franca of the US.

SIDEWALK CHALK

SIDEWALK CHALK

Sidewalk Chalk continues to lead the contemporary evolution of hip-hop, soul, and jazz. The band’s third album, Shoulder Season, is compiled from seven live performances across the US. Its title signifies transition, a time in between two places, a feeling of expectation for what is to come. Sidewalk Chalk’s roots are firmly planted in Chicago where all eight members bring their respective talents together to update a sound first heralded in the Native Tongues era but never so musically diverse. The group’s unique arrangement allows them to incorporate numerous styles seamlessly: an MC and female vocalist; a trio of keys, bass, and drums; a horn section with trombone and trumpet; and a tap-dancer.

CHURCH BOOTY

CHURCH BOOTY

R&B. Soul. Funk. Jazz. Jams. With catchy melodies and grooves that can’t help but be danced to, Church Booty gives the people what they want and then some. We’ve got one foot firmly planted in Chicago and the other in Champaign-Urbana, aiming to play both near and far. Guided by tight arrangements and spontaneous improvisations, the bar is set at a high musical standard, without taking ourselves too seriously. Blasting from the stage or your speakers, we’re here to have a good time.
