welcome to The best music you sent us, a bimonthly series to help you beat the algorithm. With each edition, we spotlight submissions from listeners and artists under the radar that catch our ears and that you need to know.

So much music, never enough time. After diving into the handwritten letters and holiday jams in our last two installments, we’re getting back to basics with some good old-fashioned submissions. This time around, we’ve got deep tropical bird-inspired funk, international grooves with a message, a new take on a Jill Scott classic, and more.


The Grease Traps are an eight-piece deep funk / raw soul outfit from Oakland. Their lead singer, The Gata, bills himself as “lead singer, dance inventor and fly guy everywhere,” and he certainly appears as all three on “Bird of Paradise”. The record is a nasty groove reminiscent of exotic bird dances like James Brown’s, and it’s the perfect thing to keep your energy up as we readjust to post-vacation routines.


New York-based, Dallas-born Jazzmeia Horn has already made a name for herself in the jazz world, with two Grammys under her belt and an album with heavyweight label Concord at just 30, and her ambitions are growing at each project. . “Dear Love” is the latest album from Horn and Her Noble Force, a 15-piece big band whose name is certainly no understatement. On “Let Us (Take Our Time)”, Horn and Her Noble Force do just that, guiding the listener through sections of mellow jazz vocals, lyrics and an exuberant drum and horn finale.

The singer saw her new album as an opportunity to challenge herself as both a songwriter and singer-songwriter, opening up to more personal and exploratory lyrics. “Dear Love”, says Horn, is about “love for my community, love for my culture, love for my partner, love for my children, love for myself… These songs are love letters for everyone “. “Dear Love” is now available on Horn’s own independent label, Empress Legacy Records, and available to stream wherever you listen to music.


Wild Bounce is the neo-soul dance music duo of Daniele Carmosino and Mabreezee, two musicians who met at a show in Barcelona and have never looked back. Mabreezee is a producer, singer and frequent traveler with roots in Angola and Portugal, while Carmosino is a composer, producer and sound designer from Italy. While the music they make as Wild Bounce draws from their own personal and musical inspirations, it is grounded in a shared love for experimentation, analog sounds, and samples.

Their most recent single, “One Shot”, is as mixed and creative as their origins. The track takes off to a rhythm machine rhythm, supported by an analog synthesizer and a heavy bass line. Mabreezee’s lyrics, meanwhile, explore the struggles, exhaustion and resilience of immigrants around the world in search of a better life. It’s a story that literally crosses borders and celebrates those who have overcome the impossible to find a new home. “One Shot” is now available on streaming services, and while Wild Bounce is a brand new collaboration, we’re excited to see what the future holds for the globe-trotting duo.


New Jersey-based singer-songwriter and model Yasmin breathes new life into Jill Scott’s classic “Golden.” On a slow-motion sample from Scott’s original, Yasmin sings his own lyrics that follow Scott’s vein of assertiveness, independence, and inner peace. The music is nostalgic enough to evoke the extreme confidence of the original, while the new lyrics are fresh enough to make this song Yasmin’s own. The result is an ever-relevant reminder of the importance of finding happiness and self-love from within. Yasmin’s “Daylight / Savings” EP, which lasts just under eight minutes, is a great introduction to emerging talent, with short R&B tracks and an excellent Spanish slow jam to accompany “Golden”. The EP is available now on all streaming services.


You might be new to the sounds of North Carolina multi-instrumentalist Fast Preacher, but you might already be familiar with his Chicago-based indie-soul quartet Fat Night. In his solo work as Fast Preacher, Daniel Hanson experiments with a range of sounds and feelings, creating dreamlike, airy and rock-inspired landscapes.

“Never Say Never” is Hanson’s collaboration with fellow Chicago artist, dream-pop singer-songwriter Claudia Ferme-Giralt (aka Claude). The song features the best of both talents. On soft rock instrumentation with a cosmic crescendo of synths and drums, Claude’s voice is sweet but confident as she sings about dealing with the end of an unhealthy relationship. “Never Say Never” is now available on streaming services.

The Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival have announced that they are entering into an exclusive partnership agreement with DICE, the music discovery and ticketing platform. DICE is able to lock tickets to smartphones in order to help eliminate scalpers, with the platform having recently opened a second headquarters in New York City.

“Each year of the event, we work with our partners to innovate beyond traditional ticketing,” Jay Sweet, executive producer of Newport Folk, said in a statement. “The most important thing for us is that the fans have a fantastic experience and we know that this experience begins long before the doors of our event open. In a year where the fans deserve to go out and see the music that they love, we know DICE is the right partner to make things as simple as possible, fair, transparent and intuitive for our Newport Family. We want these tickets to be in the hands of our fans, not in the aftermarket. . “

The Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals are two of the oldest music festivals in the world, established by George Wein in 1954 and 1959, respectively. The Newport Jazz Festival was able to take place for the last time in 2019, with Herbie Hancock, Corinne Bailey Rae, The Bad Plus, Spanish Harlem Orchestra and many more joining the event lineup. The Newport Folk Festival had also been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, returning in 2021 with Beck, Randy Newman, Billy Strings, Andrew Bird and Jimbo Mathus, and more.

“The Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals have an unrivaled heritage as two of the most celebrated musical events in US history and it is an honor for DICE to be named a partner,” said the DICE chairman Russ Tannen in a statement. “At DICE, we love working with the world’s most ambitious operators, from rising independent theaters to legendary festivals that continue to push the boundaries.”

DICE has already partnered with foreign festivals such as Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, and has also found success in New York City through partnerships with venues such as United Palace, Elsewhere and more. DICE Founder and CEO Phil Hutcheon spoke with Poll starsister publication of, Places now, as a 2021 All-Star and explained how the platform hopes to continue to grow.

Make that six straight wins for the Utah Jazz.

With a 118-96 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, the Jazz are 3-0 on their trip east. They move their record to 18-7 on the season. They’re playing their best basketball of the season, and it’s not tight.

Here are some thoughts on Thursday night’s win over the Sixers and why Jazz has been so good the past few weeks. Here’s what works and why it works.

When they are right offensively

There are few teams in the league that can match what the Jazz do from top to bottom in their rotation. Golden State. Phoenix. Maybe the Brooklyn Nets, if they were to get Kyrie Irving back. Other than that, the Jazz are arguably the most complete offensive team in the league. There just isn’t much weakness other than turning the ball around too much and the lack of a real back to the goal scorer.

What did the Jazz do Thursday night in Philadelphia? It was mastery, in many ways. The offensive odds were 131 in the first half alone. They were better and more efficient in the second half. They scored at least 27 points in each quarter, and they scored at least 30 points in two quarters. Utah coach Quin Snyder is great at identifying weakness and tackling that weakness like a scab. And with that roster, the one that in a nine-man rotation, seven of these guys can all dribble, pass and shoot, it’s very difficult to have a bad defender on the pitch against the Jazz.

Thursday night was one example.

Once again, Jazz forced out of his comfort zone in Thunder win – The Athletic https://iridiumjazz.com/once-again-jazz-forced-out-of-his-comfort-zone-in-thunder-win-the-athletic/ Thu, 25 Nov 2021 08:00:00 +0000 https://iridiumjazz.com/once-again-jazz-forced-out-of-his-comfort-zone-in-thunder-win-the-athletic/ If you’re a Utah Jazz fan, it’s understandable to be at least a little concerned with the first 18 games of the season. Jazz didn’t look like the juggernaut it was a season ago. They let slip games they shouldn’t have lost. They allowed lower teams to hang around when they had nothing to do. […]]]>

If you’re a Utah Jazz fan, it’s understandable to be at least a little concerned with the first 18 games of the season.

Jazz didn’t look like the juggernaut it was a season ago. They let slip games they shouldn’t have lost. They allowed lower teams to hang around when they had nothing to do. Wednesday night’s 110-104 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder is the latest example. A team without its best player, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played well enough in the opening 45 minutes to be in position for an unlikely win in the final three.

So even with the Jazz sitting at 12-6 this season, third in the Western Conference and with all measurements indicating that they are an elite team at both ends of the field, any Eye exam can tell you that there is a lot of cleaning on both sides.

At the same time, if you look at the big picture, you have to take a look at what the teams are doing against Utah. Whatever has made this group uncomfortable in the past, teams are doing more than ever in Jazz this season. Small queues with big shots? Teams use this against Jazz. A physical game, designed to get Jazz out of its attack? The teams do that. Teams that change everything defensively? The teams do it almost exclusively against Utah.

In case you missed it, these are the ingredients that allowed the Jazz to bounce back from the previous playoffs in a second round loss to the LA Clippers.

It certainly looks like the rest of the league was watching this series.

If you know Joe Ingles, you know the sign that he loves you as a person is how sarcastic he is around you. Thursday night, after a Utah Jazz 119-103 victory over the Toronto Raptors, Ingles was asked about Rudy Gay.

The 6-foot-9 forward and free agent award for the Jazz had yet to play in a game until Thursday night. When he did, he provided the sold-out crowd at Vivint Smart Home Arena with some reason to be optimistic. And then, Ingles was asked about him after the game.

“He’s a hell of a player, for 26 years,” Ingles joked.

“I think he stole my shooting powers. It annoys me a bit. “

Good-humored ribs aside, Gay was gorgeous in his early days in jazz. He scored 20 points on 7-8 shots from the field. He made five of his six 3-point attempts. He took five rebounds. He distributed a few assists. He packed that production in 18 minutes off the bench. And then he ran a mile on the treadmill after the win to work on his fitness and stamina a bit. The pictures taken were obviously the headliner. But, Gay was a bit more defensive in his minutes. The ball moved offensively and his skills stood out because the things he does well are some of the things that no one else does well on the list.

For Gay, just finishing the first game meant a lot. Get down to the ground. Work up a sweat. Playing NBA minutes at altitude for the first time this season has proven to be a bit difficult. There were times when Gay was visibly short of breath.

With a 110-98 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, the Utah Jazz erased the bitter taste of Sunday night’s loss to the Orlando Magic.

It was a beautiful and solid victory for Jazz. They took pictures when needed. They generated defensive stops when needed. When the Hawks pushed, the Jazz were able to get a split on the scoreboard whenever needed.

So, enough about that. Let’s talk about the big picture, with some observations on what Utah is, what it could be, and what the next few weeks in store.

A great opportunity

The victory over the Hawks is the first for Jazz to play 10 of 12 games at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The long stay at home is a chance for the Jazz to collect some victories. And it’s lucky for the Jazz to have an indulgent schedule – for the first time this season – after such a tough streak in their first 10 games.

Note: Utah’s schedule this week seems to be a little intimidating. The Hawks were just making the Eastern Conference Finals playoffs. The Indiana Pacers are always tough. The Miami Heat are one of the best teams in the league and just beat the Jazz last Saturday night. The Philadelphia 76ers have had a great start to the season.

But a closer look reveals circumstances that give the Jazz a potential advantage. Yes, they will still have to play good basketball to get victories. But the advantages remain.

Jordan Clarkson was in the middle of warm-ups Thursday night, minutes before the Utah Jazz faced the Atlanta Hawks. He was focused on a task that lay ahead. His mind was probably not where it should have been.

One of the most confident players in the league, Clarkson was in the midst of one of the deepest shooting slumps of his career. And that wasn’t a feat for a guy who made a living pulling himself in and out of slump.

Donovan Mitchell approached him. The star forward is reportedly not playing against Atlanta as he sprained his ankle on Tuesday night. He looked Clarkson in the eye, gave him a book, and said the words that would change the night for Clarkson – and for Jazz.

“Keep shooting,” Mitchell said. “Continue to be you. Keep playing your game. It’s only a matter of time before the blows fall.

Utah’s seventh win of the young season, a 116-98 win over the talented Hawks, went ugly for 2.5 quarters. Without Mitchell, Utah scored 39 points in the first half. Without Mitchell, the Jazz looked like a rudderless sailboat. And without Mitchell, the Hawks led up to nine points in the third quarter.

And then, for Jazz, it became beautiful.

Splash. Splash. Splash.

An offensive avalanche from Clarkson in the second half saw Utah not only catch up with the team that reached the Eastern Conference final last season, but also convincingly pass them. At the end of the avalanche, Clarkson had 30 points, including 25 in the second half.
