The best dance music is the kind that reminds you to move through life with your body rocking. It's one thing, a necessary thing, to get on the dance floor; but it's also supremely beneficial to carry that funky sway onto the streets and into daily routine. Luscious Jackson, the Manhattan-born, now bicoastal band of rhythm gluttons whose hits (remember "Naked Eye"?) were among the most pleasurable alternative rock produced in the '90s, demonstrates exactly how to do that.
This week's Live From World Cafe Live features David Gray, who will perform to a Sold Out crowd at noon on Friday. David Gray comes back to town in support of his new album, Mutineers, the latest in a long list of consistently great
music released by Gray, whose first album, A Century Ends, was released in 1993. Since then, the past 21 years have been a whirlwind for UK-born Gray, releasing new music and touring virtually nonstop. He's amassed 10 albums of fantastic music – including 1998’s White Ladder and it’s hit single “Babylon."
