DJ Ray Velasquez presents Groove Indigo Live @ Mono+Mono 3.10.12

Playing tracks by

Magnum, Megashira, SOUL BOSSA TRIO, Azymuth, Groove Collective and more.

Performed and recorded during another sold out Saturday evening of Seoul food and all that jazz at Mono+Mono in NYC's East Village. This session was particularly inspired, spontaneous, and improvised based upon the opening song "Dense" by Magnum which set the tone for the entire set. Many of the songs featured here had not yet been played at Groove Indigo or at least presented in this emotional context. Although the set may seem more appropriate for late night programming, I chose to feature it during the peak dining and cocktail hours of 8-10pm. Audience and staff were highly engaged with the musical narrative and reaction was dramatic ranging from "The music was amazing" to "The music was very strange but amazing". That's what I love about performing this vibe, it's not musically linear, and provides license for exploration and improvisation. Dig it.
