Welcome to the November issue of Black Grooves. This month we’re giving a shout-out to the Black Rock Coalition, which recently commemorated its 20th anniversary. We’ve got the skinny on the latest CDs by BRC co-founders Vernon Reid and Greg Tate, and have added some other new releases by artists that fall under the black rock umbrella, including Van Hunt, Ben Harper, and Three5Human (fronted by Indiana’s own Trina Meade). Rounding out the issue is a DJ Quik “best of” compilation, a new offering from the Roots, some jazz from the Deep Blue Organ Trio, and several sets paying homage to great musicians of the past, including Nat King Cole, Will Marion Cook, John Coltrane, and Joe Carter.
