Naughty Professor, Revivalists Preview New Albums with New Videos

Naughty Professor has followed in Galactic’s footsteps by establishing itself first as an instrumental funk band—one unafraid to show off its significant chops. Early next year, it will release its upcoming album, Identity, and for the occasion the band has branched out into the world of words. Chali 2na and The Revivalists’ Dave Shaw added their vocal talents to songs on the album, and the first single, “Stray,” features a passionate performance from Shaw.

Jazz Fest: Maggie Koerner Has Made a Big Family

Maggie Koerner has a voice that demands a witness. Originally from Shreveport, the singer-songwriter currently lives in New Orleans and has gathered a dedicated following due partly to her year-long stint as Galactic's guest vocalist, but in large measure it's due to her magnetic voice. Her songs are soulful melodies etched in pain, streaked in jubilance.
