I am launching a World Music radio show in April (no April Fool’s joke) entitled ‘ Travelguides radio: Global sounds for a peaceful Planet”. This is internet radio affiliated with www.the groundradio.com. I will share more details about the broadcast before we launch in April.
I started my first documentary film about the musical “founding fathers” of dance music as we know it (details to unfold shortly) Ia m very excited about it and we have some heavy hitters contributing to the project.
Summer / fall concert dates are being booked as we speak. Right now, I hope to see you on Saturday, May 12th when I play with Adam Rudolph’s Moving Pictures (featuring Adam Rudolph, Hamid Drake, Kenny Wessel, Ralph ” Buzzy” Jones, Alex Marcelo and yours truly on bass) The concert will be at THE STONE ay THE NEW SCHOOL 55 W 13th St, New York, NY 10011 (time TBA)
** Damon Banks’ “Travelguides” CD is out and available everywhere. This multi-media project was produced, written and conceived by me. “Travelguides” project reflects the sights and the sounds of Damon’s life traveling the world as a professional musician. It features some of New York City’s most creative and innovative musicians. Go to the “Sounds” page to listen / buy the entire album – or individual tracks. New music for the follow-up CD is being recorded as we speak … Many of his supporters and colleagues call this project “a street corner where world music, jazz and improvisational art forms meet … and fall in love”.
Adam Rudolph’s new “Moving Pictures” record entitled “Glare of The Tiger” received high praise last year when it was released worldwide. Go get it !
