End Notes Jazz: Neo Soul April 25 2017

End Notes returns to the Cellar Door showcasing the much talked about genre of Neo Soul. Neo-Soul was the term given to the music made by a collection of artists who were initially based in Philadelphia in the mid to late 1990s. Jam sessions in Roots drummer Questlove's living room, Bilal, a young Jill Scott and D’Angelo amongst others let to the creation of a blend of vocal-led Soul and RnB that combined jazz harmony and live instrumentation with hip-hop drum breaks and electronic elements of funk. Seminal debut releases by D’Angelo - Brown Sugar (1995), Erykah Badu - Baduizm (1997) and Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998) laid down a marker of musical significance but also brought to the fore a highly idiosyncratic and deeply personal approach to lyrical content and delivery on love and politics. Join us on May 4th for End Notes VII: Neo-Soul featuring a 7 piece live band including the vocals of GC O’Connor and Milkcrate Jones on the MPC. This registration does not guarentee you a seat / table. Please arrive at the venue as early as possible to ensure you secure your spot. Entry is free but registration is a must.
