We made it through another summer.  The SL would like to thank everyone who has continued to support our little World in Pittsburgh.  Rather it is business or personal we will all face several obstacles and decisions throughout this journey called LIFE.  Sometimes we just have to be persistent in reaching our ideal life.  The SL has seen many situations where its future seems to be coming to an end.  But as many high walls have been placed in the way, the ideas & philosophy of the lounge continues creates new paths through tough situations.  Our lives as human beings are challenged, some more than others, relationships fall apart, love ones die, jobs are lost, and cultures are discriminated against.  But time & time again, we witness the beauty of the cycle of Life, were new friends are made, babies our born, the entrepreneurial spirit is raised, and street cultures now represent the voice of the World.  No matter hard it gets sometimes; always remember that as a member of the Human Race, you have the ability to change your life and the World.

Create the Future.    -Justin Strong

Sat. 9/21st PPAF presents Dapp Theory (NYC) @ the New Crawford Grill.  Featuring Jazz Report's Pianist of the Year 2000 Andy Milne.

Saturday, September 21st will mark Dapp Theory’s (formerly Andy Milne’s Cosmic Dapp Theory) second trip to the city of bridges. Justin Strong of the Pittsburgh Progressive Arts Forum (PPAF) and 7th Movement Development, Inc., is bringing the Hip-Jazz sounds to Pittsburgh’s Historic Crawford Grill. Dapp Theory consists of lead pianist Andy Milne (Voted “Keyboardist of the Year 2000” by Jazz Report Magazine), Switzerland-born Gregoire Maret on the harmonica, Bassist Rich Brown, and drummer Sean Rickman (toured and recorded with Me’shell N’degeocello, and Maxwell). 

Milne’s innovative rhythmic grooves resemble those of alto-saxophonist and M-BASE founder, Steve Coleman. The sparse harmonic surprises Milne delivers on piano, however distinguish his music from Coleman’s. In addition, Milne’s extensive use of vocals, samples and sound bites, set him apart from other pianists in his generation, and sets him on pace to carry on the lineage of creative masters like Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner. 

Saturday’s event will be an over 21 event attracting an audience of Pittsburgh’s young Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul, and Funk artists and fans. The New Crawford Grill has a full wet bar and a kitchen serving up the tantalizing soul food for the evening. The head-nodding-foot-tapping energy is sure to echo the rhythmic sounds for Pittsburgh’s Glory Days.
