THE MILES QUINTET TEE AVAILABLE NOW!

The Miles Quintet

Liner Notes:

The Miles Quintet honors “The Second Great Miles Davis Quintet” (1964-68) consisting of Miles Davis (trumpet), Herbie Hancock (piano), Wayne Shorter (saxophone), Tony Williams (drums), Ron Carter (bass).  The Quintet’s approach to improvisation came to be known “time no changes” or “freebop,” because they abandoned the more conventional chord-change-based approach of bebop for a modal approach.

New Arrival – Red Clay 1970 Tee

Red Clay 1970Liner Notes:

RED CLAY 1970 was inspired by the soul-jazz-funk-fusion that became the Freddie Hubbard trademark sound as a CTI recording artist.  Freddie Hubbard’s Red Clay album was recorded and released in 1970 and was his first album on Creed Taylor’s CTI label. Red Clay marked his shift from Blue Note bebop to CTI soul-jazz-funk-fusion. The album would also define Freddie Hubbard’s music direction as a CTI recording artist for much of the 70s as well as set the template and the tone for all future CTI artists and recordings.

TeeCulture: TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt Culture

This is a promo video from last year promoting an amazing T-shirt and graphics exhibition that opened in Melbourne, Australia December 2012 and closed February 2013.  The exhibition, TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt Culture, set out to examine and dissect the city’s passion for cotton thru the eyes of a Melbourne’s most famous T-Shirt collector Eddie Zammit. With well over 4,000 T-shirts in his collection, Zammit dug deep into his collection to uncover influential items that demonstrate the power of the city’s T-shirt past, present and future.

TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt Culture featured photography by Nicole Reed and included visual content on Melbourne’s influential artists, brands and designers. Visitors were also able to see some classic local tees and prominent Melbourne T-shirt souvenirs.

New Arrival – Trane: A Love Supreme Tee

TraneLoveSupreme

Liner Notes:

A Love Supreme What can we say that hasn’t already been said about the legecy, music and impact of John Coltrane. This shirt is a simple token of respect and appreciation for a man who is to this day one of the most significant tenor saxophonists in jazz history. “Trane” as he is affectionately called, created and recorded his most famous record, A Love Supreme (Impulse! Records) in 1965. The four-part suite is an ode to his faith in and love for God. The fourth movement of A Love Supreme, “Psalm”, is, in fact, a musical setting for an original poem to God written by Coltrane, and printed in the album’s liner notes.
