NORI: “I See You”

By: Jack Anderson

Having previously proven their elegant, earthy style on the 2016 debut World Anew and again on 2018’s Bruise Blood, NORI continues to sustain their spot as one of the most captivating and eclectic ensembles the Live Music Capital has to offer. NORI blurs the boundaries between world, folk, and jazz effortlessly across the core quintet of trumpet, electric piano, upright bass, drums, and the ever-dazzling Akina Adderley on vocals, allowing listeners to just sit back and absorb subtle nuances that recall the records of Joni Mitchell, John Coltrane, and Nina Simone.

This past Monday, NORI shared a new music video and single recorded just weeks before the COVID-19 lockdown, featuring three additional players tracked in live, simultaneously for a shared air of solidarity through creativity and collaboration, “I See You”!

Lunar Gold: “Low Light”

Even though it’ll always be a nightly main attraction, the moon’s also been a hot topic thanks to recent international missions, both successes or failures. But of course, for every state-funded effort, there’s a private space venture in the hands of a billionaire. Which begs a question. Once corporations capitalize the moon, how much of […]
