Episode Info: The coolest thing about living on this side of the river in the Hudson Valley is being exposed to a diverse culture, full of diverse styles and unique talents. You can go up to Kingston and see PWR BTTM (a queer duo that fucking rocks), go to the library and see subPixel (the Frank Zappa of chiptune), or go to a coffee shop and listen to Keys to the Moon, a powerful and fun throwback to a jazzier age. I heard Keys to the Moon's demo on Bandcamp and was struck by how each member's raw talent shined through. Let's start with what stuck out first: the vocals! Casey, the lead singer, has a the kind of sultry soulful tone that sends shivers up your spine.  Then, I noticed the rhythm section. In jazz, the bass and guitar kind of hold down the fort and the drums are free to wander a bit, adding dynamics to the whole thing. Let me tell you, these dudes do a great job; it reminds me of what you might have run into in this area decades ago: high-quality jazz groups fronted by very talented female vocalists.  Let's not forget the saxophone; Russell, the saxophonist, piqued my interest because, though the music I usually listen to doesn't include saxes, he was able to merge smooth jazz with well-controlled raucous energy, which I love! Check out Keys to the Moon on bandcamp!
