I'm stuck at work, so I will be missing out on the record release party for Secret Science Club Goddess and Friend of the Bastard Dorian Devins' new CD, The Procrastinator. The party will be in the re-opened, relocated Tagine Moroccan restaurant (now located at 221 West 38th St, between 7th & 8th Aves). If you are in the NY metro area, please go and show some adulation and adoration for the brilliant, smashing Ms Devins. Here and here are reviews of Dorian's album. More importantly, here is the title track of the album for your musical enjoyment:
Again, if you're in the NYC metro area and you're not stuck at work, head down to Tagine and enjoy some delectable Moroccan cuisine and be entertained by someone I consider to be a colossus in both the musical and intellectual circles of the city.
If you wish to hear Dorian as critic as well as Dorian as artist, here's Dorian discussing John Coltrane's career with NY Times jazz critic Ben Ratliff:
