Jazz Criticism and Race


Two of my favorite critics of the music known as jazz are Albert Murray and Amiri Baraka. Their voices are at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of presentation, but are equally valid. They brought nuance to their criticism. That is something jazz critics, most of whom are white, do not bring…

Oddisse - Caprice Down

Directed by Jeremy Ian Thomas

About the Video:
The skaters featured in the video are from a crew called “Hammer City”.

Hammer city is a collective of skaters who all live near or in the neighborhood on 14th street in Long Beach California. The crews founder was a skater named Michael Green A.K.A Blacc. Mike was gunned down in 2005 over a case of mistaken Identity. Needless to say, 14th street is not a conducive environment for skating, drugs and gangs shadow the landscape but n the middle of out all the kids found an escape, they found refuge in a park they dubbed “Ghetto Park” which later became know as “The Michael K. Green Skate Park.”

Featured in the video are three members from Hammer City: Juice, E.C., and ManMan (Blacc Mike’s brother).

Theo Parrish Feature (Slices issue 1-12)

This guy might sound like he’s full of it, but he’s not. Listen closely and you’ll be able to grab a few key points on what makes a creative and independent artist so important in today’s cultural landscape. If you’ve never seen this guy before, he’s Theo Parrish. Label owner, DJ, and independent thinker. 

You can catch Theo at Plastic People in London, usually every first Saturday. And yes, fuck yes, we recommend that you do.
