Taking in the world experience, the LIFE experience, and the current state of humanity on the planet earth, Logan presents 'Blues People,' his fourth studio album. Recorded in Omaha and mixed in KC, the album features local musicians Ryan Lee on drums, DeAndre Manning on bass, Justus West on guitar, and the Berlin based, Ukrainian guitar player Igor Osypov. Logan stands in front of the heavy intro and states his intent with a quote from Donny Hathaway: ‘I like to do blues as a reflection on a period, past and present, in Black people’s lives. … It is a complete negative… on the secular side, of the religious music that we had in church.’ Logan further informs us ‘ I’m a country and western freak… I dig the simplicity.’
Hanging Hearts is a free-spirited, Chicago-based trio led by saxophonist Chris Weller described by European audiences as "hammering the walls between genres." Bridging the gap between jazz, rock, and experimental music, the band features Cole DeGenova on keyboards and Quin Kirchner on drums. The band’s latest album Into a Myth (2017, Shifting Paradigm Records) was produced by drummer Dave King and features eight cut-to-the-chase originals referencing various themes from creation myths to cosmic rights of passage.
