King, Solazzo and Horrace at Hancock International Airport.

Enough is enough. We are going to stop limiting Bill Horrace by calling him a jazz guy. Of course, he can go there, but his musical abilities and ambitions go well beyond the J-word. We’ve seen him (along with a variety of his band incarnations) play pop, folk and soul everywhere from a moving bus to storefronts downtown. In his latest cultural creation, Horrace’s band was the initial guest at the Hancock Airport Music Series, which took place this morning.  He was joined by Dave Solazzo on keys and Kinyatta King on drums.

The pleasant tones seemed to put everyone in a good mood, and had airport staff and travelers bopping through the terminal.  The tall, peaked ceiling provided surprisingly wonderful acoustics.

We are not sure where he’ll resurface next, but hopefully Horrace will someday lay down his version of some aquaboogie on a boat (or along the shores of Onondaga Lake).

‘Cuse Now

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Last week USA Today highlighted several towns to experience public art and Syracuse was not on the list.  Hopefully that will change because at last week’s outreach meeting the Connective Corridor staff reported that nearly 300 artists submitted proposals to enhance the cultural and business district.  Also, more facade and lighting projects are coming.

And while we look forward to the aesthetic possibilities, we know it’s the day-to-day work that makes a difference. We caught up with construction manager Gregory Miller at the outreach meeting to talk about his role.

Syracuse Architectural Digest: The Bridge is Over?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

We recently saw these renderings of a post elevated Route 81 done by Jason Evans.  The Re-Think 81 Team envisions a boulevard style roadway that will change the way you look at Midtown Syracuse (and destinations such as Forman Park).

Here is a good magazine issue about the use of lighting in landscapes that features a profile of the Connective Corridor.
