Alternative,Dance Club,Indie
!!!
Combining punk abandon and tightly-coiled dance music has always been bonded into the DNA of !!! (pronounced Chk-Chk-Chk). It's this core plus their growth and mastery of songwriting that has seen them outlive the mid-2000s 'indie/dance punk' tag and has allowed them to consistently grow lyrically and sonically from album to album. As If is their most transcendent collection of songs yet.

Jazz
"Anybody’s Spring” CD Release Concert: Sherri Roberts Sings
“Stylistically, Roberts bears a significant resemblance to gin ’n’ satin seductress Julie London. But where London’s voice was distant as a winter moon, Roberts’ is all dappled sunshine. . . shimmering delicacy. . . Enchanting.” - Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes Vocalist Sherri Roberts celebrates the release of her newest cd, Anybody’s Spring, a jazzy tribute to everyone’s favorite season. Her 5th album as a leader and her third for Pacific Coast Jazz/ Blue House Recordings swings from the jazz compositions of Clifford Brown and Tadd Dameron to the standard and not-so standard fare of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Hoagy Carmichael and Blossom Dearie favorite- Bob Haymes. Drawing material from the cd and beyond, her performance at Blue Note Napa promises to be a spring lover’s dream come true! A leading torchbearer for the less-is-more school of jazz singing, Roberts owes a debt to “cool” vocalists like Helen Merrill, Irene Kral, and Chet Baker. Her velvet voice, laid-back phrasing, and understated delivery veil an uncommon depth of feeling and a deep understanding of lyric and nuance. As Kirk Silsbee of the Los Angeles City Beat so rightly says of Sherri, “She’s a breath of fresh air…pure and unaffected.”
