|Like a whole other country? A brand-new club is prepared to rock the Stockyards|
While the face of downtown Fort Worth's nightclub scene continues to change, thanks to the recent birth of dance-club/lounge triplets Aqua, Bent and Embargo (see our cover story), the Stockyards are also on the eve of a metamorphosis of sorts. Next Thursday, the Rockyard club will open at 2525 Rodeo Plaza, in the 15,000-square-foot space once occupied by Club Fusion.

LANTANA -- First Female Group to Hit Texas Music Chart Top 10 in Years; Trio Draws National Attention
BGM Recording trio LANTANA is the first female group to break the Texas Music chart Top 10 since the Dixie Chicks did so years ago. This week, their single, "Country As A City Girl Can Be," landed at #9, and made its Music Row chart debut as well. LANTANA (Biz Haddock, Karol Ann DeLong and Dalene Richelle) is hitting its stride -- and the ladies are earning a name for themselves -- despite the comparisons to the Dixie Chicks. Three gorgeous women, three beautiful voices, plus some great country songs. The similarities end there. "Since Lantana is made up of three women playing country influenced music comparisons to the Dixie Chicks may be inevitable. This trio has their own distinct sound; however, with a bluesy soul in the Bonnie Raitt direction. Their harmonies are lush, sweet and poignant, augmenting the honest lyrics. A fresh force to watch out for." – Music Morsels (PRWeb Nov 3, 2006) Trackback URI: http://www.prweb.com/zi

Joan Sanmarti Scandal? Satchmo Jazz 2006 Veteran Spanish jazz guitarist Joan Sanmarti and his quintet venture towards classic, hard-bop, swing and excursions into the free zone during this rather jaunty session. With Frederic Carlquist and Victor de Diego providing a dual-core saxophone attack, the leadera(TM)s fluent lines and solid compositional acumen intimate arching angles and elements of suspense. Sanmarti chooses his notes wisely amid a sequence of briskly articulated single note flurries and intricate progressions. On aoeBlock (Peradedebo),a he switches to acoustic, where the band fuses a touch of American style country and western with saxophone-driven jazz choruses. In sum, Sanmartia(TM)s clear-sighted writing and strong leadership impart the winning edge. They dona(TM)t reinvent the proverbial wheel, as the quinteta(TM)s mode of execution offers a hefty dose of disparate viewpoints, translating into an abundance of articulate musical ya
