If there was one album that could sum up the talent, energy, and diversity of Baltimore’s music world, it would be this creative reimagining of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Spearheaded by local music-scene mainstays Sandy Asirvatham (a former CP contributor) and ellen cherry, the ambitious project sees local jazz heroes Russell Kirk and Todd Marcus bringing the jam to “Any Colour You Like”; former Bridge frontman Cris Jacobs vamping it up on “Money,” which also includes rapped verses from David “Native Son” Ross and Femi the DriFish; and sax master Craig Alston teaming up with local activist-singer Lea Gilmore on “Brain Damage.” We’re hoping Asirvatham and cherry make this a regular thing. If any city could do it, it’s Baltimore.
