Trip hop auteur and programming wizard Borahm Lee and  rock steady beat keeper Adam Deitch have used their collaboration to explore a variety of music directions and dimensions, combining funk, EDM styled sound scapes that defy the listener to do anything but surrender and get lost in the grooves they lay down. Last night they were able to show once again how easily their sound could be expanded and enriched with additional live accompaniment by Deitch’s regular partners-in-crime from his main project, Lettuce.Lee was contained behind an array of keyboards and electronic music making devices that he put through their paces.  Not one for flashy, splashy distractions often used in these types of musical collaborations, Lee managed to make dozens of different contributions to each song between his loops, beats, drops and keyboard fills without overpowering his partner Deitch or their guests. It’s a testament to Borham’s deft touch that he could manage to do so much to guide the songs without taking over the show.Adam Deitch, as usual, put on a drum clinic, effortlessly cycling through the various styles and tempos the Break Science material requires with his permagrin showing just how much fun he was having as his musical worlds collided. As a producer as well as a drummer, Deitch is well of the importance of giving talented collaborators a comfortable place to do what they do best.  His familiarity with everyone sharing the stage with him was obviously a source of joy, and his eagerness to lay down a solid foundation for his friends to let loose upon was a testament to his skills and lack of ego.Bassist Jesus Coomes blended his trademark thumping, infectious bass lines with the deep drops and loops programmed in by Lee.  The Blue Nile has a deceptively deep sound thanks to speakers hidden in the stage itself that pumped the fat bass lines directly into the crowds nether regions, inspiring a rather sensual response from the packed crowd. Lettuce’s brass section, The Shady Horns A.K.A. Ryan Zoidis on sax and Eric “Benny” Bloom on trumpet each brought a unique addition to the show.  Zoidis used a variety of effects to paint dark, psychedelic overtones on the songs, coloring outside the lines and beyond the more straight forward approach he normally takes.  Bloom on the other hand cut through the wall of sound effortlessly with his trumpet and used his natural exuberance to connect with the audience and elevate the energy with his antics.Guitarist Adam “Schmeeans” Smirnoff worked himself into the mix with remarkable restraint that showed a sense of surety in his abilities that allowed him that has come with years of playing in a large ensemble like Lettuce. His smooth rhythm style the fleshed out each piece, with the occasional screaming solo line that reminded the crowd just how much he could do if he wasn’t fulfilling a more focused, supporting role. As each song flowed into the next, the musicians all found new ways to pass the baton between each other, no one player dominating for more than a moment or two.Jazz Fest sees dozens of rare combinations and collaborations each year, but few that come off as seamlessly as the Break Science Live Band show did last night.  The instrumental selections driving combination of funky grooves and entrancing beats seemed to be exactly what the audience needed, s a packed house was locked in a unified dance energy that only stopped when the early show was forced to end so that the room could be cleared for the separate late night show.  It was a pity that the night had to end, as the band and the fans clearly could have kept the love vibe they were sharing going to the break of dawn.  But in the end, beauty is defined by limits. For one incredible set of music a group of musicians kept themselves in check, serving the sound instead of their egos, and the result was a whole far greater than the sum of the parts.

Chukwueze’s impact reflected in Villarreal’s win  against Azeez’s Granada

first_img The Yellow Submarine have won all their games since the Spanish top-flight resumed after its suspension due to the coronavirus outbreak in Spain and across the world. Villarreal started with a 1-0 win against Celta Vigo at Abanca-Balaidos before recording the same scoreline against Mallorca on Tuesday, with Chukwueze playing a key role in the outings. Against Granada, the Nigeria international started from the bench along with his compatriot Azeez, who plies his trade for the Nazaries. The Yellow Submarine hit the ground running with Gerard Moreno opening the scoring as early as the 11th-minute after he was set up by Ruben Pena, which proved to be the decisive goal in the encounter. In an effort to ensure his side secures a comfortable lead, manager Javier Calleja brought on Chukwueze for Javier Ontiveros in the 65th minute. The Super Eagles winger had a 67% successful pass rate, won one aerial contest in the encounter and made one tackle in an effort to help his side maintain their lead. He was, however, shown a yellow card after he tackled his compatriot Azeez, who was introduced in the 61st-minute, from behind. Samuel Chukwueze helped Villarreal chinch a 1-0 victory against Ramon Azeez’s Granada in Friday’s La Liga game at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.

With the result, Villarreal are seventh on the league table with 47 points from 30 games while Granada are ninth with 42 points from the same number of matches. While Chukwueze will hope to help his side continue their winning form when they face Sevilla, Azeez will look forward to playing a key role as Granada aim to bounce back against Leganes, who will be expected to parade two Super Eagles stars in Kenneth Omeruo and Awaziem Chidozie on June 22. Chukwueze has been a key member of the Nigeria national team since making his debut for the West Africans in 2019. The forward, who has 13 caps for the Super Eagles, was part of Gernot Rohr’s team that finished third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. read also:Villarreal hold on to Chukwueze’s magic touch against Granada Azeez, meanwhile, only recently returned to the national team after a five-year absence and has six caps for the side.
