Who is Pattie Crawford aka DIANARA? She recently shot a scene with Orlando Bloom for his new movie "Red Right Hand," also staring Andie MacDowell.

She's even on the cover of the book "Final Exit" praised by Master P and with Tim Reid to direct the film adaptation which she will co-star! Her image was placed on the side of a limited number of semi-trucks from Jasper Engines, a leader in the auto industry and recognized by Forbes magazine, and "the company received so many compliments on her that they ordered 100 more trucks with her image!" She has graced the covers of fashion magazines, toured with the Vogue models and walked down her share of runways! She has landed several commercials, including McDonalds! She is also a talented voice-over artist! She's even such a talented singer (DianaraMusic.com) that the founder of Big Machine Records (Taylor Swift/Garth Brooks) Scott Borchetta and his wife Sandi, follow her on social media, as well as Peabo Bryson, CeCe Winans, Selina Albright, Nick Sample, Bootsy Collins and a host of other musical icons. DIANARA has a sultry sound that could melt butter but is a multi-genre generating artist who can go from jazz and blues to commercial in a heart beat! With such a broad vocal range and being a voice-over artist, she has the ability to manipulate her voice to fit most styles of music, reaching multiple age groups. She is college-educated and her charismatic personality and professional demeanor is why she was chosen to host last year's Louisville WorldFest which attracted over 100,000 visitors! She is even known worldwide for her lead on a featured series on the TBN Network! "Why haven't you, perhaps, heard of her?" After her father died she put her career on hold to attend to her ailing mother

Jacob Duncan

Born:

Jacob Duncan’s musical path has been a fascinating one, consistently balancing a spiritual, intuitive inclination with a keen, educated intelligence. Band leader, composer, arranger and force of nature saxophonist, Duncan’s ensemble playing is as empathetically assured as his soloing is riskily rewarding. Beginning on alto sax at age eleven, the Louisville, Kentucky native soon distinguished himself as the kid who could play. He graduated from the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy, played lead alto in the Yamaha Big Band in high school, and won a music scholarship to the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, where he was a member of the world-renowned One O’Clock Lab Band, Little Jack Melody and his Young Turks, and other stimulating outlets, including his own Liberation Prophecy. After graduation and reading “way too much beat literature,” Duncan flew to Lisbon on a one-way ticket with alto in tow, $500, and very little else

Struttin' With Some Barbecue

Read "Struttin' With Some Barbecue" reviewed by Jeff Fitzgerald, Genius

My beloved Virginia, for example, gave such priceless gifts as the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and seven presidents (I do not count William Henry Harrison, because he was a dumbass).

Craig Tweddell Quintet: Away with Words

Read "Away with Words" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


Perhaps it's more than coincidental that Craig Tweddell titled this intriguing recording a snowclone--Away With Words. That might be because this exciting Louisville-based trumpeter/composer hosts a noted weekly jam session at a club named for author and poet--Rudyard Kipling--or, it might suggest most correctly that it's the music that does the word speak here.
