Bassist Nicholas Krolak is a young veteran of the Philadelphia jazz scene. He has spent the last decade working as a side-man, experiencing new styles, and studying with the masters. Now, he has taken all he has learned and is applying it to his own group. Tracing the lineage of bebop into the contemporary, his compositions celebrate the city and honor nature. He is also the host of the Voice = Power Podcast in which he interviews visionaries of the Jazz world, pursuing the question: How does an artist find their voice?
Davina and the Vagabonds, “I Can’t Believe I Let You Go” Backed by brass, B3 organ and the barroom jazz of a well-tested road band, Davina Sowers creates her own Americana mishmash — a little Amy Winehouse-worthy neo-soul there, a little Great American Songbook-influenced songcraft there — with “I Can’t Believe I Let You Go.” Released on next month’s Sugar Drops, this is bluesy, old-school lounge music with a 21st century twist, led by a frontwoman whose voice and vigor have earned the Vagabonds quite a following overseas.
