Jacobs has harnessed over a decade of trans-genre exploration on his second solo album, Dust to Gold, due for release on October 21, 2016 via American Showplace Music.The new album is a soul-stirring expression of the current chapter of his creative evolution, featuring twelve well-crafted songs that masterfully weave through the sweet and rugged landscape of soul, blues, country, gospel, and rock and roll.The lead single from the album is “Turn Into Gold”, a moving slide-guitar meditation about channeling the “muse,” or “tapping the source,” as Jacobs calls it. It’s about the desire to be, “enraptured in the mystery, the unknown, the questions, the answers all at once,” Jacobs describes. “If I’m playing or singing and I’m really connected to that source and I’m really locked in and there’s a room full of people experiencing that, the hope is then for them to get locked into their own thing, and it’s this beautiful, ecstatic magic that happens. To me, this is that elusive goal that I chase every time I sit down to write a song or every time I get on stage to perform.”Listen to “Turn Into Gold,” streaming below.Jacobs’ full band includes a richly funky rhythm section with Todd Herrington on bass, Dusty Ray Simmons on drums, and John Ginty on Hammond organ and keyboards, who has been a master side man for years, working with Jewel, Citizen Cope, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and most currently, with The Dixie Chicks.Whether its his work with The Bridge from 2001-2011, his side project Neville Jacobs with keyboardist Ivan Neville and more, anyone who listens to Cris Jacobs is bound to be impressed. Be sure to catch Jacobs on the road, touring extensively throughout the fall in support of the new release!last_img read more

Solskjaer to axe misfiring Man Utd flop

first_img Lingard failed to record a Premier League goal or assist in the whole of 2019. Loading… Jesse Lingard is facing the Manchester United axe. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan were so annoyed by his display in the 3-1 home loss to Manchester City on Tuesday that they hauled him off at half-time. Lingard, 27, was anonymous as toothless United were mauled by their bitter rivals in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg. Solskjaer has publicly protected Lingard during his year-long dip in form. But after United fell 3-0 behind at half-time against their noisy neighbours, his patience snapped. It is understood Phelan was particularly vocal about Lingard’s inability to follow instructions. There were cheers as Lingard’s substitution was announced to the crowd — and it is likely he will be replaced by Juan Mata for Saturday’s visit by Norwich.Advertisementcenter_img Read Also:Inter Milan make move for Man United defender Solskjaer had claimed Lingard was getting back to his best — despite him having an awful game in the 2-0 away defeat to Arsenal on New Year’s Day. He was subbed after 58 minutes at the Emirates. Lingard’s contract runs until the end of next season and he is reported to be using agent Mino Raiola, who has caused problems with his handling of Paul Pogba.

Women of Troy sweep weekend while Men oust Arizona State

first_imgChants, shouting and the sound of a 20-year-old record breaking could be heard coming from McDonald’s Swim Stadium last weekend as the men and women’s swim and dive teams hosted the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils in two dual meets.The No. 6 Women of Troy defeated the No. 7 Wildcats on Friday, 190-110, and continued to dominate by defeating Arizona State on Saturday as well, 172-121. Meanwhile, No. 5 Arizona defeated the men’s team on Friday, 190-110, but the No. 14 Trojans came back and conquered Arizona State the next day, 186-107.One of USC’s most memorable moments this weekend came in the form of freshman Vladimir Morozov. The newcomer broke a USC record on Saturday with his 100-yard freestyle time of 42.93 seconds. Erik Ran previously set the record in 1990 with a time of 42.98.“I felt great. I didn’t even think of breaking [the record],” Morozov said. “I thought I was going about half a second slower, but it was great.”Morozov’s record, which was set in the men’s 400-yard freestyle relay on Saturday, was not the only thing that made USC coach Dave Salo proud this weekend.“I think we demonstrated clearly that we have a really strong program and hopefully in March we’ll be able to make it to the top five [at the Pac-10 championships],” Salo said. “We’ve really come a long way in the last three years. We’re now a team that’s probably more respected and I think people expect more out of us.”With the Women of Troy’s sweep this weekend, and the Trojans’ victory against Arizona State, the dual meets proved to be successful ones for USC. There were several factors going against the Trojans, but they didn’t rattle USC swimmers.“We did great and we fought on to the end,” Morozov said. “We got beat by Arizona but they were rested and they were wearing their suits, so that made a lot of difference … [On Friday] in the morning we had a full workout before our meet, so when we are rested and put into fast suits we will do better at everything. “Another foreseen challenge was the fact that the Friday’s dual meet against Arizona took place in the evening, a rare occurrence for the swimmers. The USC teams found the conditions to be advantageous, however, and the Women of Troy even managed to come out with a victory.“I think that we can swim faster later in the day,” junior Katinka Hosszu said. “It’s easier to get really pumped up at night with the lights on and everything.”After this weekend, USC’s swimmers have a while to wait before their next competition. They will compete again at the U.S. National Championships in December, with the NCAA and Pac-10 championships on the horizon after that. With their last meets done for a while, both teams are ready to see what happens next.“I am really excited because we are already swimming at almost our best times now and we are not even rested,” Hosszu said. “I am curious to see how we do when we are rested and have our suits on.”last_img read more
