On the latest episode of The Vinyl Exam, we had a chance to go deep on our influences, record collections, and production process. Check out the first installment of the two-part interview.

@TheVinylExam Episode 12: @Columbia_Nights Part One http://www.thevinylexam.com/#/episode-12/

On Episode 12, Keith sits down with the three members of Columbia Nights to talk music, the creative process and of course records and record diggin’. We had such a good time talking (and the interview went on so long), it’s broken into two parts!

Looking forward to the upcoming 1978ers record from our brothers SlimKat and yU. Check out the People of Today intro, featuring Vaughan Octavia on the strings.

DMV artists keep it in the family.

via Couch Sessions: “Opening for KING was the local DC group Columbia Nights. This trio’s mostly instrumental set featured smooth, spacey, jazzy mid-tempo grooves, aided on some songs by live female violinist and vocalist Vaughan Octavia.”

The music world lost a giant one year ago today. Shine on, sir.

I had the honor of meeting George Duke just a few months ago when he played the Blue Note with Stanley Clarke. After their set, I simply thanked him for all he had done for black music. He was also gracious enough to listen to our tribute, smiling and nodding with approval as he gestured to Stanley that he dug our music. (He was even more impressed that a young cat had found an original pressing of the Feel LP via import.)
Beyond his extraordinary talent, he was an extremely benevolent man with a humble and gentle spirit. He will be sorely missed, but his music will live forever.
Shine on, Sir Duke.
