D-NICE

D-Nice could have chosen anywhere in NYC; he selected BCHTS, the premier VIP celebrity event space. This relationship and what it means to the culture to connect a historic Carnegie Hall performance with some of the most talented black artists, actors, and fashion legends created a historical moment. 

Legends of the old-school hip hop and fashion world showed up with an appetite to Robert “Don Pooh” Cummins Brooklyn Chop House Times Square post-D-Nice’s Club Quarantine at Carnegie Hall last night. 

Daymond John, Styles P, Jadakiss, Big Daddy Kane, and DJ Clark Kent took over a different set of tables, enjoying signature menu items and recharging for another set on the rooftop. When D-Nice arrived around 1 am, he jumped on the turntables and continued to spin classics.

The Knights Ensemble in Residence

As a collective of musicians seeking to renovate the orchestral experience, The Knights are artistically directed by the Jacobsen brothers, with Eric Jacobsen as conductor. The Brooklyn-based orchestral cooperative The Knights showcased the first of three concerts during this fall and spring at their residency at 92Y.

The heart of the concert stages two classical works – Schubert’s bright “Unfinished” Symphony and Vaughn Williams’ superb The Lark Ascending, featuring Knights Artistic Director Colin Jacobsen as violin soloist. The programming of The Knights navigates Manhattan’s Lower East Side in the 1990s and Vienna in the 1820s, highlighting subjects of revitalization and renewal, while echoing Schubert in work of a Creole-influenced composer.

360 Magazine was invited to attend The Knights concert on Saturday December 11. We stood by, bearing the recent loss of love. Our heads were heavy, entering this season, but be that as it may, we gathered the courage. And, what the audience witnessed was nothing short of astonishing – suspensive string clips, haunting flute sounds coupled with intermittent triangular percussion rings penetrated the auditorium.

Eric (conductor) and Colin’s limitless love for one another was the vitality of this whole series. Their playlist literally tickled our souls, watered our desires while our vellum hairs danced with deception. Each section took us on a mental roller coaster – sitting in the forward car, enjoying the initial fall with our hands toward the sky. This meticulously blended set is like good wine and possesses all the sweet and refreshing notes of Napa.

Eric ran into sweat directing while we were all mesmerized at his art of bending the air. Colin dominated the audience with his vulnerability, eerie arrangement and tremendous talent. To sum up, The Knights adopt an unorthodox approach to music, exposing their joie de vivre to whomever is willing to embrace their truth.

Eric Jacobsen

Conductor of The Knights Eric Jacobson has gained the reputation of leading revolutionary projects. Jacobsen has conducted The Knights at New York venues including Carnegie Hall and Central Park, as well as internationally at the Vienna Musikverein, Cologne Philharmonie and Hamburg Elbphilharmonie. Serving as Music Director of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Jacobsen was recently appointed Music Director of the Virginia Symphony. With much call as a guest conductor, he too just led the Camerata Bern, Detroit Symphony, Alabama Symphony, ProMuscia Chamber Orchestra, Deutsche Philharmonie Merck and Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad.

Colin Jacobsen

Known as a violinist and composer, Colin Jacobsen is a captivating figure serving the classical music scene. Jacobsen was named one of the top 100 composures under 40 by NPR listeners. Operating as an active Avery Fisher Career Grant-winning soloist, he has toured with Silkroad since it was established in 2000. For his landmark work in the string quartet Brooklyn Rider and orchestra The Knights, Jacobsen was chosen amongst the nation’s leading visual and performing artists to obtain an esteemed United States Artists Fellowship.

The Knights collaborate with pianist Aaron Diehl for a blend of jazz and classical music. The ensemble welcomes Diehl as they explore Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue and trailblazer Mary Lou WilliamsZodiac Suite. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 is also featured with varieties from Ravel’s Baroque-inspired Le Tombeau de Couperin. Closing out the show is Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, arranged by Michael P. Atkinson.

Sat, Apr 30, 2022, 8 pm ET

Edgar Meyer, critically acclaimed double bass virtuoso and composer, unites with The Knights for the New York premiere of his second concerto. The show unfolds with a showing of Jamaican-born British composer Eleanor Alberga’s Shining Gates of Morpheus featuring Knights hornist David Byrd-Marrow. The closing of the show continues the American spirit of Meyer’s work is Coplands’ Appalachian Spring.

For this special NYC performance, Wakeley has assembled a live band featuring the album’s bassist Ryan Miller, drummer Brent Berry, guitarist Jay Gleason, as well as featured electric violinist Irene Fong, featured electric cellist Marta Bagratuni, a string quartet, five-piece brass ensemble, and 10-member choir. Wakeley will lead the band on piano and keyboards. Opening the show is guest pianist, Tania Stavreva.

Wakeley said, “Playing Carnegie Hall is a dream come true for so many artists, including myself. I’m excited to share my latest project with live audiences, as we find our way back to normalcy. I’m confident the audience will leave feeling motivated and entertained by the incredible musicians that will accompany me on stage.”

Boasting a cinematic hybrid of orchestral music, rock, and EDM, featuring stunning compositions, heavy guitar riffs, and thundering drums, the album Symphony of Sinners and Saints was released on May 21 by Studio Seven Media. With Wakeley on synths and piano, the album features the talents of guitar legend Joe Satriani on two tracks; celebrated UK ensemble the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO); guitarists Andy Timmons (Danger Danger, Pink, Olivia Newton-John), Paige Harwell, and Daniel Uribe; Grammy-nominated pianist Paul Loomis; the London Voices choir (Paul McCartney, Luciano Pavarotti, the Hunger Games series) and Dallas’ Gospel of Light Choir; plus, the aforementioned Miller and Berry. Symphony of Sinners and Saints was recorded in October 2020 at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios. At those sessions, the RPO was conducted by Cliff Masterson (Little Mix, Kylie Minogue, Il Divo, Oasis). The album was co-produced, engineered, and mixed by three-time Grammy Award-winner Tre Nagella (Lady Gaga, Blake Shelton, Snoop Dogg) at Luminous Sound Studios in Dallas, TX.

In addition to the two chart-topping album positions, Symphony of Sinners and Saints debuted on six more Billboard charts that week, including No. 2 on “Heatseekers,” No. 12 on “Hard Rock Albums,” No. 13 on “Top Current Album Sales,” No. 14 on “Top Album Sales,” No. 47 on “Independent Albums,” and No. 50 on “Top Rock Albums.” Previously, three of the album’s singles, “Forgive Me” featuring Joe Satriani, “Sinners and Saints,” and “Conflicted,” also featuring Satriani, all hit the top position on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Digital Song Sales” chart. In addition, “Forgive Me,” also charted at No. 9 on the “Rock Digital Song Sales” chart and No. 19 on the “Hot Hard Rock Songs Chart.” His second single, “Sinners and Saints,” debuted at No. 4 on the “Rock Digital Song Sales” chart and No. 15 on the “Hot Hard Rock Songs” chart. His first single, “Conflicted” also debuted No. 6 on the “Rock Digital Song Sales” chart, and No. 18 on the “Hot Hard Rock Songs” chart.

ABOUT TREY ANASTASIO

Over the past three decades, composer/guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio has forged a multi-faceted career, winning acclaim in rock, classical and theatrical circles. He is a founding member of Phish, one of today’s most successful and innovative rock bands. In the summer of 2017, Phish completed a residency at the world-renowned Madison Square Garden in New York – an unprecedented 13-night run known as The Baker’s Dozen. Phish’s total number of performances at the famed arena currently sits at 64.

Anastasio has received GRAMMY® nominations for his recordings with Phish and for his solo work. He has collaborated with such artists as Dave Matthews, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Toots and the Maytals, B.B. King and The Roots, and – as part of the trio Oysterhead – Les Claypool (Primus) and Stewart Copeland (The Police). He co-wrote the music for the Broadway musical Hands on a Hardbody, which received a Tony nomination for Best Original Score in 2013. In the summer of 2015, Anastasio joined the surviving four members of the Grateful Dead for five stadium shows, which celebrated the band’s 50th anniversary and served as their farewell shows.

Anastasio has performed his original compositions with numerous symphonies. The New York Times hailed his Carnegie Hall performance with the New York Philharmonic as “that rarest of rarities, a classical-rock hybrid that might please partisans from both constituencies.” In 2014, he debuted a new piece for guitar and orchestra, entitled Petrichor, on a West Coast orchestral tour that concluded with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl, marking his second performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In April 2019, Anastasio released his 14th solo album, Ghosts of the Forest, which Rolling Stone said was “built around psychedelic guitar liftoffs, ambitious arrangements, and extremely personal lyrics.” Between Me and My Mind, a film documenting Trey’s creative process debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival and played a sold-out limited-run engagement in theaters this past summer.

If you threw Billy Joel, Oscar Peterson, and One Republic into a blender, something close to this album would come out.

“One of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation.” —The New York Times
 
“In a word: incredible. A virtuoso pianist.”—New York Post

“Rebirth of Cool.” —Elle

“A musical sensation….” — Town and Country

 

Born in New York, Peter has performed in some of the world’s most prestigious venues from Carnegie Hall to L’Olympia in Paris, collaborated with artists ranging from Andrea Bocelli to David Guetta, has been featured in blockbuster films such as Spiderman 2, represented the global fashion brands Ermenegildo Zegna and Tod’s, and just recently appeared as himself in Season 3 of the hit Netflix series House Of Cards, singing a duet with the president played by Kevin Spacey.

 
“The only thing you can say about Peter Cincotti is that he is sensational.” —New York Daily News

“Peter Cincotti, the phenom, is a versatile singer pianist” —Newsweek
 
“This much talent… may not even be legal.” —The New York Observer

 

Long Way Home was written, arranged, and produced by Cincotti over a two year period and is his most personal album to date. “Never before have I used the piano in this way. A few years ago, I began having these visions of an album that brings active, rhythmic piano playing back into the landscape of modern music,” said Cincotti. If you threw Billy Joel, Oscar Peterson, and One Republic into a blender, something close to this album would come out. Cincotti moved to the Jersey Shore to put this project together, of the experience he explains, “At one point, whenever I fell asleep, a new song would introduce itself in whatever dream I was having. So I’d wake up and write it down. Several songs on this album were written that way. It got to a point where I felt like I wasn’t even composing, I was just writing down what was already there.”
