acehotel @turntablelab here with another edition of #BroadwayBeat. Happy Birthday Mr. Dynamite, The Godfather of Soul, Soul Brother no. 1, James Brown. JB influenced the world with his outstanding live performances, incredible albums and countless singles. From The Famous Flames to The JBs and numerous other supporting players, Brown kept a rotating cast of some of the baddest musicians in the game. Bootsy Collins, Bobby Byrd, Lyn Collins, Maceo Parker, Hank Ballard, Fred Wesley, & Bernard Purdie to name a few all had key roles in that funky sound with James Brown, the hardest working man in show business, leading the way.

Today we pay tribute. Say It Loud... Join us at #acenyc for #Broadwaybeat, our Sunday Brunch Jazz series in the lobby from 12–3. With live Jazz from the Jared Henderson Trio, DJ sets by @PrinceKlassen and food by @thebreslin.

acehotel Hi, @turntablelab here with a Sunday spotlight on the inimitable Jazz artist Donald Byrd. Byrd's natural ability to teach and nurture young musicians helped shape the career of Herbie Hancock amongst many other Jazz artists. His soulful approach to funk, soul and disco still maintained their Jazz origins and just as the title of his 1974 album 'Stepping Into Tomorrow' claimed, he did just that. Join us at #acenyc for #Broadwaybeat, our Sunday Jazz series (happening now). With live Jazz from the Jared Henderson trio, a DJ set by @PrinceKlassen and food by @thebreslin. 1w

acehotel Hi, @turntablelab here. Happy 45th birthday to one of the greatest game-changing albums in the Jazz World, #MilesDavis' Bitches Brew.
Groundbreaking on so many levels, the album saw Davis further experimenting with not only electric instruments but also using the studio itself as an instrument. Incorporating post production edits, tape loops, delays and reverbs, Bitches Brew is still regarded as a truly innovative album pioneering new and then unheard sounds.
Join us at #BroadwayBeat, a Jazz Brunch series happening now at #acenyc. Live Jazz from the Jared Henderson trio, DJing provided by @TurntableLab's @PrinceKlassen and food from @thebreslin.

acehotel It's @turntablelab here, with another select for #broadwaybeat (happening now in the lobby at #acenyc). Happy birthday to one of the most celebrated figures in Jazz history, Herbie Hancock.
The pianist, bandleader and composer started with Clark Terry, later joined Miles Davis' Quintet, and then went onto a solo career that has broken the genre's boundaries countless times. Often credited for being an architect in the post bop sound and later being one of the first to embrace synthesizers, his catalog shifts and maintains pure excellence from decade to decade, genre to genre. A true original.
