Just a couple weeks ago, Envision Festival brought a powerful blend of music and environmentalism to the shores of Costa Rica. Our own B. Getz was on the scene, where he was able to catch up with beloved musician Lafa Taylor. Taylor talks about his influences, merging the many styles of music much like the festival itself. With some extensive coverage of Envision on the way, we wanted to share this exciting interview to get fans pumped about the beautiful nature of Lafa Taylor and all things Envision Festival. By blending an incredible array of music, including the smooth merge of electronic and live instrumentation, Lafa Taylor continues to impress.Check out the interview below, conducted by B. Getz and filmed by ATS Photography:

(Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) will perform down in New Orleans at Maison for a special show during Jazz Fest, making for one serious jam session. However, things just got stronger with The Force, as the band just announced additional artists who will join J.E.D.I.’s insanely stellar cast this Sunday. J.E.D.I. bandleader and world-class drummer Aaron Johnston (Brazilian Girls) is currently on tour as one of six percussion players in David Byrne’s band, who will perform earlier in the day at the festival proper. Given this, Johnston has now added his fellow Byrne band members—Davi Viera, Mauro Refosco, and Gustavo Di Dalva—as well as bassist Nate Edgar of The Nth Power to J.E.D.I.’s upcoming late night performance in New Orleans. (Get tickets here.)EXCLUSIVE: Aaron Johnston Talks Touring With David Byrne, Brazilian Girls, J.E.D.I., & MorePreviously announced artists joining Johnston’s J.E.D.I. project for this special show include bassist Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits), keyboardist Borahm Lee (Break Science / Pretty Lights Live Band), saxophonist Ryan Zoidis and trumpeter Benny Bloom (of Lettuce / The Shady Horns), guitarist Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds / Matador!

Lee, Zoidis, and Edgar joined the maiden voyage of J.E.D.I. with Johnston back in late 2017, which went off into a galaxy far, far away. With the way things are currently adding up, this late-night might just go into the furthest reaches of the musical universe.J.E.D.I. – Ardmore Music Hall – Ardmore, PA – 11/30/2017[via 215music]Tickets for J.E.D.I. at Maison on Sunday, April 29th at 10 p.m. are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.

But having seen his team crash 4-1 at Tottenham Hotspur after thrashing Maribor 7-0 earlier in the group phase, Klopp is desperate for his men not to ease up ahead of Sunday’s derby clash with Everton.“We showed tonight that we learnt from the mistake we made in Seville,” Klopp said, referring to Liverpool’s 3-3 draw against Sevilla on their previous Group E outing, when they had squandered a 3-0 lead.“Now we have to show that we learnt from the mistake we made after Maribor when we faced Tottenham. We will be ready again on Sunday and if the crowd are ready to help us, it would be nice again.”A brace from Coutinho, the first a penalty, and an opportunistic Firmino strike put Liverpool 3-0 up inside 18 minutes and they turned the screw after half-time.Mane and Coutinho struck in quick succession, the latter completing his first Liverpool hat-trick, before further neatly worked goals from Mane and Salah took the team’s goal tally to 32 in nine matches.Klopp could not disguise the extent to which he had enjoyed watching his team, saying they had scored “fantastic goals, unbelievably nice goals”, but there was an accompanying note of caution. – ‘Learn a lesson’ –As group winners, Liverpool should theoretically receive a kinder draw in the last 16, but with Bayern Munich, Juventus and Real Madrid among their potential opponents, Klopp does not expect any favours.“I think it’s really strange this year in the group phase,” said the German after Liverpool ended a nine-year wait to reach the knockout phase.“In the last 16 of the Champions League, they’re always strong sides, but this year it’s quite special.“I don’t think you can often face Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and Juventus in the last 16 if you win the group. And all the others. That’s quite interesting.“(Chelsea manager) Antonio Conte said it yesterday: there are no easy opponents.“I don’t think anybody will be happy when they get us in the draw, so we will not be happy when we see who we will face in the next round. But we will be ready, that’s for sure.”Spartak coach Massimo Carrera, whose team dropped into the Europa League, issued a scathing verdict on his side’s performance, saying his players had “almost played like they were afraid”.But he said playing in the Champions League had been a broadly positive experience.“If we forget today’s result, our campaign went pretty well,” said the Italian, whose team face city rivals CSKA Moscow this weekend.“We knew it would be a good result to go through to the Europa League and we achieved it.“We’ll try to forget this game for now, but we’ll try to learn a lesson from it.”Share on: WhatsApp “We should not think it will be like this from now on until the end of our entire lives,” he said.Emre Can received a booking that rules him out of the first leg of Liverpool’s last-16 tie and Klopp admitted an injury that forced left-back Alberto Moreno to limp off in tears had further dampened the mood.“We come to the little shadow tonight that Alberto Moreno needed to get substituted,” said Klopp.“It was a strange situation. He’s a tough guy and if he cannot continue the game, then we should consider it could be something serious.“In the treatment room he was a little bit more positive, so maybe we are lucky and it’s not too serious.” Liverpool players celebrate . They crashed Spartak Moscow 7-0 to reach the last 16Liverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Jurgen Klopp urged his Liverpool players not to succumb to the hype generated by their own scintillating performances after they crushed Spartak Moscow to reach the Champions League knockout rounds.Liverpool’s ‘Fab Four’ shone in a 7-0 trouncing of Spartak on Wednesday, with Philippe Coutinho scoring a hat-trick, Sadio Mane claiming a double and both Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah finding the net.
