Stream Pick: Virtually Green Note

By: Laurie Gallardo

On today’s AMM (click on the MP3, please), listen carefully just after the introduction. You’ll hear a really cool dude informing the musicians that recording is now in session. That cool dude is Cruz. He’s 4 years old. And the musician who answered him is  Carrie Rodriguez – who happens to be Cruz’s mom.

And the performance of the track “Z” is from Rodriguez’s series A Song For You, in which she and husband/collaborator Luke Jacobs play songs and share their performances on video via social media.

This week, Rodriguez and Jacobs will join friends Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis for a song swap on the live stream series Virtually Green Note…in the round, an online musical event curated by London-based venue the Green Note. Don’t miss out on the show, Wednesday May 27th, at 2 p.m. (Central) on the Green Note’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. Don’t miss out.
