Music Monday: February 8th

Every week the Libro Musica team and some of our favorite music bloggers will share what we are listening to and a peek into the future of what we will be adding to our music libraries.  We also have posts from guest bloggers: Gemma from Planet Lux, Kerry Wittig from Up Front NY,  Christine from Nash News and Holland from Southern Princess Problems.

What is your current go to song?

This week when I learned about the death of Maurice White, I found myself pulling out some Earth, Wind & Fire.  Of Earth, Wind & Fire’s many, many hit songs, “Let’s Groove”, is one of my favorites.  I have found myself hitting replay on this song over and over again with memories of roller skating rinks and high school dances in my head.


What event are you looking forward to attending?

This week, I am genuinely amped about two shows.  One events brings a relatively new local group, The Lightning Orchestra Band,  to the stage at Aisle 5.  The other event brings a long time favorite of mine, Meshell Ndegeocello, to the stage at Terminal West.  If you are in the Atlanta area these are shows that need to make.

In anticipation of the Meschell Ndegeocello concert, Gwendolyn reviewed Meshell Ndegeocello’s latest album Comet, Come to Me and we are giving away a pair of ticket to this weekend’s Meshell Ndegeocello concert.

Come back next week for full coverage of these shows.

Who is an artist that everyone needs to check out?

An musical group that was recently introduced to me is Black Violin.  Black Violin is the classically trained team of Kev Marcus on violin and Wil B. on viola.  Black Violin isn’t your average string duet, the group fuses classical music, hip hop and pop music in a way that makes the music appealing to anyone that enjoys any of these genres of music.  Take a listen to the title track, “Stereotypes from Black Violin’s lastest album Stereotypes.  Stay tuned for more coverage of Black Violin here on Libro Musica.


Which artist has the best catalog of love songs?

Luther Vandross is my top choice for love songs.  From his first album, Never Too Much, in 1981 through his last, Dance with My Father, in 2003, Luther has put together a series of songs that need to be on everyone’s playlist for an intimate evening.
