Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse: Little Village Presents 5 World Premieres

"Little Village Presents 5 World Premieres” will showcase record releases, maiden performances or premiere live performances from the following artists: DaShawn Hickman with Charlie Hunter, Diunna Greenleaf, Mighty Mike Schermer, Henry Kaiser & Rome Yamilov and LV veterans Maurice Tani and Marina Crouse.

There’s a little bit of something for everyone in these albums. Marina Crouse on “Canto de mi corazón” is a fourth-generation Chicana who couldn’t even speak Spanish until adulthood. She revisits the songs she heard at her grandmother’s home, which she sang along to in Spanish yet never knew what the words meant. The influences of Edie Gorme, Linda Ronstadt and Vicki Carr run deep here.

Houston blues singer Diunna Greenleaf “I Ain’t Playin’” whose shout-out voice will rain down on you like a gushing Texas oil well.

Mighty Mike Schermer “Just Gettin' Good” funky upbeat music styles from blues to soul to funk to rock & roll, country, Americana and nearly every stop in between.

Dashawn Hickman w/Charlie Hunter on “Drums, Roots & Steel” evokes Southern black church roots combining gospel, rock, Hawaiian, West African percussion and western music rhythmic foundations centered by DaShawn’s pedal steel guitar prowess.

Lastly Rome Yamilov with Henry Kaiser's “The Lenoir Investigation” is a “crazy guitar” exploration using different genres in a tribute to blues legend J.B. Lenoir.
