The King of Soul, SOLOMON BURKE, has enlisted ELVIS COSTELLO, VAN MORRISON, BOB DYLAN, TOM WAITS, NICK LOWE, BRIAN WILSON and CAROLE KING to pen tracks for his new album, the JOE HENRY-produced "Don't Give Up on Me." "My mind is just blown that these people even knew me enough to send me a song," Burke told Rolling Stone. "It's unbelievable, I can just go on and on. I wish I could've recorded two albums, that's how many great songs I had. This is a whole new bag." "Don't Give Up on Me" is due this July on Fat Possum.

Sounds Smile: The Music of Brian Wilson
  Contemporary Improvisation Department Concert
  Scott Sandvik, director- New England Conservatory, 33 Gainsborough St , Boston,MA - Feb 25, 8PM Jordan Hall - Admission FREE

  Come for an evening of our "Pet Sounds," as NEC improvisors celebrate
  the music of Brian Wilson, former Beach Boy. Each year the creativity
  of NEC's Contemporary Improvisation department comes together around
  the musical genius of pop music giants, from Stevie Wonder to Burt
  Bacharach. This year's celebration is a journey into the vast,
  untapped repertoire of Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys auteur. Wilson's
  music extends far beyond surfin' and cars, and is sure to bring a
  smile in NEC's improvisations, arrangements, and recompositions. Led
  by NEC faculty guitarist Scott Sandvik, the evening's performers
  include saxophonist Allan Chase, current NEC Dean of Faculty, plus
  students, alumni, faculty, and friends.
