No Regrets - Gaby Moreno

Gaby Moreno is another great Latina singer/songwriter that I follow. When I first found out about her I was super excited because she is Guatemalan. I joke with my friends and tell them she is my soul sister, hehe. Even more reason to love her, she loves bossa nova (Brazillian Jazz), one of my favorite musical genres! "No Regrets", from her album Illuminated Songs, is inspired by Antonio Carlos Jobim. I love it, it's such a positive song. Her overall style is a mix of blues, jazz, and soul...so good! Lyrics Tanto que hacer Hay tanto que hacer Me siento bien No hay tiempo que perder Tanto que ver Hay tanto que ver Cuál ser mi hazaña Al abrir mis pestañas? Sabes, paso todo mi día Pensando en ti Si, pensando en ti Río, en tus aguas me quiero sumergir Desde hoy no me voy a arrepentir Desde hoy no me voy a arrepentir So much to do So much to do I´m willing and able No time to lose So much to see You know there´s so much to see ´Neath a carnival sky Oh, the jubilee Notice, I´m always Filling the days With you on my mind Yes, you on my mind River of joy you won´t let my heart dry up From now on promise you no regrets There´ll be no regrets You should follow Gaby on Spotify: http://goo.gl/h6OWSB

Black History Month: The History of Jazz
Let's start with the basics: Did you know that jazz was born in the US? Did you know that the drum set was invented by jazz musicians? Did you know that words like "cool" and "hip" came from jazz? It's more than just music to listen to in cafes and bars - it has an incredible story behind it. Here's a brief run-down, with the help of Scholastic's history of jazz curriculum! === Late 1800s The Blues The Blues was born in the South and was meant to express the pain and injustice faced by African Americans during this time. Inspired heavily by hymns and traditional work songs (thus the common use of call and response) this music used to accompany spiritual and social events. Blues set the foundation of jazz not to mention the inspiration for rhythm and blues, rock 'n' roll, and country music (think of Elvis Presley!) === 1900s New Orleans New Orleans is a melting pot of sounds. The French trumpet mixed with the Blues, traditional African drumming, ragtime, and military marching bands all came together in cacophony that brought on the birth of classic jazz music. Improvisation and accompanied dancing was common and the music filled the streets! === 1901 Louis Armstrong is born Louis Armstrong was one of a kind. His understanding of rhythm and his ability to improve made jazz what it is today. He is actually one of the most influential artists in the history of music. Born in New Orleans, on August 4, 1901, he began playing the cornet at the age of 13. He changed the way that jazz artists approached solos forever, and moved away from a more traditional Dixieland style. He played faster and louder than anyone had before. === Mid–1930s Swing Swing was born from the basic foundation of jazz. Swing as a jazz style actually first appeared during the Great Depression. The fast dance tunes were meant to lift the spirits of the American public, and it did! By the mid-1930s, a period known as the "swing" era, swing dancing had become our national dance and big bands were playing this style of music. Orchestra leaders such as Duke Ellington, Paul Whiteman, and Benny Goodman led some of the greatest bands of the era. === Duke Ellington A pianist, composer, and bandleader, Ellington was one of the founders of the big band sound. "Ellington plays the piano, but his real instrument is his band. Each member of his band is to him a distinctive tone color and set of emotions, which he mixes with others equally distinctive to produce a third thing, which I like to call the 'Ellington Effect.'" —Billy Strayhorn, composer and arranger === 1940s Bebop n the early 1940s, jazz musicians were looking for new inspirations, and a new direction. Out of this desire for something new, style of jazz was born, called bebop. It's fast tempos and complex melodies created a "jazz for intellectuals." The big bands with dancing crowds was replaced with small audiences that sat and listened to the music, trying to catch all the details. === Dizzy Gillespie Trumpeter, bandleader, and composer John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was born on October 21, 1917. At the age of 20 he moved to NYC and started to experiment with jazz to eventually come up with the bebop sound. He was heavily inspired by Latin music and set musicians on the path towards modern jazz. === 1950s Latin and Afro-Cuban Jazz Adding in more inspiration to the already eclectic, dynamic genre is Afro-Cuban music. The combination of African, Spanish, and Latin American music changed jazz's sound and the culture surrounding it. I've seen plenty of people posting about Jazz in our music community and I'm sure you know much more than I do, so I'd love to hear your favorite stories about jazz history - they were wild times!!

One of the most famous jazz clubs in Korea, this place guarantees to impress. The bar is spread out over three floors; the first floor is for those who like to be right up close to the music. It offers the best view of the performers but obviously, it's also the noisiest. The second floor is perfect for those dining as the music provides a lovely backdrop to the conversation without overpowering it. The third floor is for VIP guests and private parties only. Dinner on the second floor makes for a superb date as you get to know each other over sumptuous food and smooth jazz. There are two live music stages each night; the first lasts from 7:30PM until 10PM and the second from 10:20PM to 12:40PM*. Expect an eclectic mix of musical styles; original jazz, swing, bebop, fusion- you'll find all of it here. The bar stocks over 100 wines and each of the cocktails are named after famous jazz musicians - somehow a Billy Holiday sounds more than appropriate when you've already had a few Ella Fitzgeralds!! Bear in mind- this place isn't cheap(!) so you'll probably visit it once in a blue moon as the name suggests! It's unsurprisingly incredibly popular for proposals ;) So if you're really going for it or you've just got cash to spare, you can't go wrong here!

Using Music to Move Past Differences in Kids on the Slope
Kids on the Slope is an anime that's about two things: jazz music and friendship. In one scene, the series captures overcoming differences in a friendship through the power of music or more specifically, jazz music. Before the scene above our two main characters Sentaro (the drummer) and Kaoru (the pianist) are not on speaking terms after Kaoru feels like he's been betrayed by Sentaro. During their school's recital something happens to the band that is supposed to play next and Kaoru volunteers to keep the crowd busy while the band gets everything together. There's something you should know about Kaoru, he's kind of a nerd. At the start of the series, he doesn't really have any friends, he's constantly getting bullied, and he's practicing classical piano pieces. That is, until he meets Sentaro, who -- for lack of a better term -- is kind of a bad boy. Sentaro doesn't go to class, he only plays the drums, and is constantly getting into fights. So when Sentaro steps on the stage to accompany Kaoru, it comes off as a big gesture. You can even see the surprise on Kaoru's face once he hears the drums start playing. As the song goes on, you can see their differences and anger towards each other disappear. The friendship they've made throughout the series up to this point takes the forefront. Jazz becomes their way of arguing with each other. There are moments throughout the medley where one musician stops playing and the other keeps going as if to say, "okay, I'm going to listen to your side of the story, now". The magical thing to me about this scene is how jazz -- or music in general -- is used as a tool to get through certain hardships. Through the way they play their instruments, we can see our characters have a discussion, get through their differences, and then remember what it's like to have fun with each other.
The Best Places to Promote Your YouTube Channel Are Forums
People have concerns. They also require responses to these inquiries. They, too, have passions. They wish to share them with those who are interested in them. Fortunately, the Internet has some unique places for all of those people. Forums are what they're called. Quora, Reddit, and Stack Overflow are just a few of the numerous free internet sites where you can advertise your YouTube videos and channel. This is how it works in a nutshell: When users discuss something, you join in the conversation, speak with them, and share a link to your YouTube channel. After all, doesn't marketing have to be conversational? Begin by compiling a list of popular threads related to your niche. Check to see if you have any YouTube material related to these topics that you might promote. If you don't have any, make some. Join the discussion and let others know that you've created a YouTube video on the subject. The Best Old-School Techniques for Promoting YouTube Videos YouTube has been active for over fifteen years, and video artists have exploded on the platform. As a result, they devised some unique promotion strategies that appear to be effective even today while promoting free YouTube films. Here's a quick rundown: 1. Collaborations on YouTube Collaborations on YouTube are a simple notion. YouTuber A contacts YouTuber B, and the two decide to collaborate on two separate videos, one for YouTuber A's channel and the other for YouTuber B's. This is referred to as cross-promotion. It's been around since the birth of YouTube, with many of the earliest YouTubers, such as Justine Ezarik and Shane Dawson, being the first to introduce it. So, if you want to promote your YouTube channel to a relevant audience, you must first discover a YouTuber with a similar niche to yours – of course, you don't want to send an email to a superstar because you must start small in this business. Send a smaller YouTuber an Instagram direct message or a casual, pleasant email. Pitch your idea to them and see where it goes from there. 2. Giveaways and contests To be perfectly honest, this is referred to as bribery, because you are essentially offering your audience a bonus in exchange for subscribing to your channel. And it just so happens to be a present. However, it's still one of the most effective strategies for individuals and organisations looking to grow their fan base. It's not only on YouTube, either. Contests and freebies abound on Instagram and other social media platforms. And they look to be one of the most efficient ways to promote yourself. To participate in a giveaway contest, ask your audience for a subscription and a like on your video. You won't believe how powerful this will be. 3. Hashtags on YouTube Hashtags on YouTube were only recently added. Actually, it was in 2016. The goal was to improve the viewing experience while also assisting artists in making their films more discoverable. Despite the fact that they aren't widely used and authors dislike them, viewers appear to be using them. We've grown so accustomed to seeing hashtags on social media that we intuitively want to click them. Make your title topic-specific by include a hashtag. It may sound antiquated (like Twitter in 2009), but it is free and produces results. 4. Establish power and establish relationships. At the end of the day, you want to be known as an expert in your field. Because you'll be able to grow an audience, market your services, and promote your YouTube channel, videos, and content for free and without having to lift a finger if you do it this way. People will keep checking what you've published, visit your channel, subscribe organically, and wait for you to provide more content once you've established yourself as an authority. However, in order to become an authority, you must have a comprehensive set of materials. Sure, a channel is a fantastic idea, but you'll also need to start a blog, write articles, and network with other experts in your field. You can then request that they include your video in one of their blog posts, share it on social media, or even give you a free shoutout. However, remember the YouTube golden rule. That is... Finally, create awesome content. It's not rocket science to succeed on YouTube, and it usually boils down to producing high-quality, useful video. If your content isn't good enough, promoting your YouTube videos won't help you because you'll just end up with a pool of uninterested viewers who won't subscribe to your channel or return for more. Concentrate first on creating high-quality material, then on how to advertise your channel. Keep your audience in mind, make them pleased, and who knows, maybe they'll take the reins and help you promote your show. Crossing my fingers!
