SOUTHPORT Records: The Life and Saga of An Independent Label

SOUTHPORT Records:
The Life and Saga of
An Independent Label
by Bradley Parker-Sparrow

When I was five or six my father gave me a small portable reel-to-reel tape recorder that had a circular clip-on microphone. Sundays were always lazy days and I would often tape the Ed Sullivan show, playing back my early bootleg recordings underneath my sheets, late at night.
...glancing into the future little did I know that there would be digital CDs, and that I would be a composer-engineer-label owner.

Nicole Mitchell/Black Earth Ensemble: Afrika Rising

Nicole Mitchell/Black Earth Ensemble: Afrika Rising

The very much anticipated follow-up to Vision Quest does not disappoint and shows growth and maturity with, this time, a focus on orchestration. She succeeds in shaping a full-bodied and luxuriant sound. In the process, the Black Earth Ensemble seems larger than its actual size.

Joanie Pallatto and Marshall Vente: Two

Joanie Pallatto and Marshall Vente: Two

Joanie and Marshall present an eclectic collection of pop tunes, standards and jazz compositions that highlight their musical versatility as performers. Thoughtfully fashioned with a mix of planning and spontaneity, the selections run the listener through a range of emotions, from bright to dark. The ballads, especially, let both performers ably tap the well of their feelings. On the more rhythmic cuts, the groove is always comfortably relaxed with both performers hitting a nice laid back pocket.

Joel Brandon: Haven't We All...?

Joel Brandon: Haven't We All...?

Joel Brandon holds a unique place in the music world. Not only is he a whistler, but he does so by inhaling. However, he should not be considered as a novelty act. Joel Brandon does not rely on cheap tricks; he uses his gift as a real instrument. And he does not let it eclipse his talent as a flautist either.
