The Brownskin Band did three shows for Day 2 of the Northeast Jazz & Wine Festival last weekend. The band featured several interchangeable members, but we noticed that the trio of Jamel Lorick, Tamar Smithers and TC Carter also formed a nucleus for one of our all time favorite bands from back in the day, Electric Relaxation. We saw ER for the first time at the old OnaJava Cafe. On Saturday Brownskin slowly built an audience inside the World Beat Pavilion until it became a sweatbox, sort of like Electric Relaxation used to do at OnaJava. The more things change, the more they can often sound the same.

It seems Lettuce and Soulive sax player Sam Kinninger is popping up all over the area. He played with The Dave Matthews Band at the Lakeview, and last night we saw him jamming with Brownskin in the World Beat Pavilion for the Northeast Jazz & Wine Festival. Believe it or not, we first met Kinninger when he had a gig in Hanover Square back in the day when the Jazz & Wine Festival was known as Jazz in the Square. He invited us into his show (at a bar) and we’ve been following him ever since.
