It's that time of the year where the best upcoming musicians and bands from the world's Latin music community converge on New York City for a handful of crazy musical days, otherwise known as the Latin Alternative Music Conference. I'll be in attendance this year and am stoked to get a heads up on who's gonna be hot in the coming months when it comes to Latin alternative music. Here's some acts that I look forward to checking out when I'm out there while trying not to melt from the heat.

The June 23, 2013 edition of Johnny D’s Jazz Journal was the third all-new installment of a show I call “A Trip to the Keys: Jazz on the Family of Keyboard Instruments.” Naturally, such a show will prominently feature the most elegant, most expressive, most dynamic of keyboard instruments, the acoustic piano, but I always look forward to digging up examples of jazz played on organ, harpsichord, celeste, clavichord, synthesizer, and accordion or bandoneon.
