The cause is yet unknown, but it has ripped apart The Matra Star System as we know it. The Matra System’s two suns, “The Mothers” have mysteriously disappeared, leaving chaos in their wake. Planets have been cut off from their usual communications relays, and are unable to reach bases on the other planets in its system.
Now in its 10th year, Swing ‘n’ Samba has developed one of the most varied repertoires in Baltimore – not only the styles included in the band’s name, but blues, jazz waltzes, Latin, early R&B, and bits of pop, rock, and country music.
They will play all of these styles in their live-stream concert on June 7.
"New Orleans barrelhouse piano, the Impressionism of Ravel and Duke Ellington’s jaggy solo-piano sound form the bedrock of Lafayette Gilchrist’s style at the keyboard.

On 'Dark Matter’…the hypnosis of the pocket comes through.” – Giovanni Russonello, The New York Times
