The Ken Walker Sextet is a little like the full moon, except the KWS is more dependable and swings harder. The full moon arcs gracefully across the sky. It's nice, but does it make you snap your fingers? Walker and his band evoke (but don't demand) that response.

Bringing Music to Life

Feb 18, 2018

Learning to play an instrument can have a profound, positive impact on a child, teaching valuable life skills and boosting confidence and self-esteem. And that instrument you have at home can help make it happen.

From March 5th through the 17th, Bringing Music to Life will hold the 2018 Instrument Drive, collecting donations of gently-used band and orchestra instruments that will be repaired and awarded to deserving music programs throughout the state.

The fundraiser edition of the Vinyl Vault will feature tunes from several Return to Forever albums; “No Mystery,” “Where Have I Known You Before” and “Best of Return to Forever.” Primarily the brainchild of Chick Corea, Return to Forever was one of the foremost fusion bands of the 1970s. These three albums concentrate mainly on the most second and electric of the various incarnations of RTF, but “Best of” includes some tracks from the third iteration of RTF with horns and vocals.
