Rock Torch has published a book! Proceeds go to charity.

One of our favorite websites interviews artists and asks them to recommend their favorite bands. It is a model of what music sharing should be all about. Musicians suggesting other musicians, which ultimately opens up a world of great tunes to fans. Up and coming bands and artists share the pages with veteran colleagues and music lovers benefit from these conversations.

Now, Rock Torch has published a book to archive their best posts. The proceeds go to fundraising that, you guessed it, helps musicians and the communities that they come from. It is also set to donate funds to Hurricane Sandy relief.

 

Out On The Tiles

Jazz Fusion: Birds of Flame, Jan 15, 2011

First listen to the Birds of Flame at the Greenfield Grille in Greenfield, MA.

The Greenfield Grille is a cozy bar/restaurant with a great set up for the band. There were crescent tables with table cloths, candles, dinner and drinks. Nice ! The band had a stage with a dance floor in front. This gave them the space they needed both to invite the crowd to groove to their sensational vibe, and they also used the area to totally jam out with each other during the show.

The Birds of Flame bill themselves as a tribute band to the great Mahavishnu Orchestra of the 1970's and 1980's. They are jazz fusion, rock, funk and world music. Their Facebook page mentions Weather Report as well. The members are :

Chris Devine - Violin
Bob Cummings - Keyboards
Chris Dixon - Guitar
Randy Tougas - Bass
Gary Rzab - Drums
