    Watch: Sam Gendel Releases Video for "Satin Doll" Title Track

    Sam Gendel has released the title track to his forthcoming Nonesuch debut album, Satin Doll, due March 13, and a video for the same. The video, shot by Senzo Ueno, finds Gendel in Tokyo with special guests Beast Car Club Classixfour and a 1964 Impala SS lowrider. "This recording is the first take of the first tune ever performed by this group, no edits; I just happened to hit record," says Gendel. "It is the empirical formula of the album and that's all there is to it."

    Satin Doll is a futuristic homage to historical jazz, a sonic construction/deconstruction of well-known jazz standards, including the above for Duke Ellington's "Satin Doll." That track and the previously released "Afro Blue" are available to download now with pre-orders of the album. To do so, head to the Nonesuch Store, Bandcamp, iTunes, and Amazon, or hear it on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Rhiannon Giddens has joined with musician Amanda Palmer and author Neil Gaiman to create Art Is Alive, a new online resource guide to support artistic and creative freelance communities whose livelihoods have been so greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. "We are hoping that this website can act as a kind of general yellow pages for the current money emergency in the art and music world," they say. "We like to call it our COVID-19 directory of give and take." Art Is Alive also offers a place for artists to interact, to share information as new events, new resources, and new ideas develop.
