J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvised) has announced a stacked lineup for its second-annual late-night show during Jazz Fest in New Orleans. The group will blend a myriad of musical elements from a diverse range of genres including jazz, afrobeat, dub, funk, dance and more to create a “live music abstraction” at One Eyed Jacks on Friday, May 3rd at 2:00 AM.J.E.D.I, led by Brazilian Girls co-founder, former David Byrne drummer, and Grammy nominee Aaron Johnston, has brought together a lineup featuring a dual bass attack of Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits) and Nate Edgar (The Nth Power), versatile turntablist DJ Logic, and keyboardist Borahm Lee (Break Science/Pretty Lights Live). Revered mandolinist/violinist Michael Kang and percussionist Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident will be on hand as special guests after finishing up night two of their three-night run at Mardi Gras World.For Johnston, J.E.D.I. has been a long-time dream that is finally coming into fruition. His diverse musical background and long list of friends and prior collaborators have led to many special nights in J.E.D.I.’s young career. Last year’s performance at Jazz Fest, for example, featured special guest appearances by guitarist Jefferey Lockhart, as well as the entire percussion section from the David Byrne touring band, alongside Jazz Fest staples Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds and Ryan Zoidis of Lettuce. The band also has a high-profile show coming up in Denver at the new event, The Big Melt, featuring members of The String Cheese Incident, Thievery Corporation, and more.When asked about J.E.D.I., Johnston explained, “It’s for us and the crowd. An opportunity for us to connect on stage with our friends—who we are fortunate enough to have some of the top musicians around today—and play the music we want to play and experiment with and hopefully really connect with the crowd.”Tickets to J.E.D.I at One Eyed Jacks are on sale NOW at this link.

– Lennox Daniels strengthens teamTHE Guyana Amateur Boxing Association (GBA) has stepped up preparation for the Caribbean Schoolboys and Junior Tournament with the holding of weekend encampment of Under-16 and Juniors. The encampment commenced on Friday, June 14, approximately two months before the regional tournament.GABA president Steve Ninvalle disclosed yesterday that boxers are being housed at the National Gymnasium and are being prepared by a battery of coaches inclusive of the vastly experienced Lennox Daniels.Daniels joins Sebert Blake, Clive Atwell, Winston Pompey and Clifton Moore as those responsible for whipping the team into shape. The Caribbean Schoolboys and Junior tournament is scheduled for the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall from August 16 to 18.The tournament started in Guyana in 2016 and Guyana has won the title ever since. However, with invitations for this year’s tournament being sent out to powerhouses Panama, Puerto Rico and The Dominican Republic, the local association has seen it prudent to raise the level of preparation of the locals.“We are happy that Mr. Daniels could have taken time out of his busy schedule to give back to the sport. He contacted us expressing his willingness to assist in Guyana retaining the Caribbean title. He has a wealth of knowledge and is an asset.We would also like to extend gratitude to Mr. (Clive) Atwell, (Winston) Pompey, (Sebert) Blake and (Clifton) Moore for making the sacrifice and putting the preparation of the youths before many of their personal responsibilities and obligations, ” Ninvalle said.The GABA head added that the association has secured the service of a sports psychologist to work along with the locals.“So far, those encamped have been screened by a doctor and were afforded their first session with a sports psychologist. Our intention is for the psychologist to have weekly interaction with the squad with the hope of having the best physically and mentally fit team represent Guyana.”Ninvalle used the occasion to thank Director of Sport Christopher Jones for allowing the use of the Gymnasium for the encampment which runs until August 18.
