Fascinating example of mentorship/critical artistic judgment from Martin Scorsese http://ow.ly/Iw2kB http://ow.ly/Iw2q3 @OpenCulture
Eight or so years ago, young filmmaker Colin Levy got an opportunity of a lifetime. He got a one-on-one meeting with Martin Scorsese.

Bad album art, awful music, godawful videos. Hilarious. (But how did Herbie Mann end up here?) http://ow.ly/IsTz0
Back in 2013, London filmmaker Jimbo Stephens took it upon himself to create a video detailing the music belonging to what the people of the Internet have deemed the worst album covers of all time....

Amen. RT @IndyArts The Simpsons in Auschwitz - a horrific reminder of the Holocaust pic.twitter.com/iUXua9DFlq http://ow.ly/Ixh9U
When reflecting on the horrors of Auschwitz, the last thing you think of is Homer Simpson. After all, The Simpsons usually provokes laughter, not sorrow.

WTF?!?! RT @marklittlenews: 'Not for Jews’ job ad whips up a storm in France http://t.co/jWSGhPyVyE via @FRANCE24 http://ow.ly/IpiFq
A French job advert aimed at “non-Jewish” candidates, and the clumsy attempts to explain how it was ever posted, have triggered a backlash on social media.

“He has firmly established himself as an innovative force within the world of jazz.” –National Post
Introduction
One of Canada's A-List pianists! - CFRB 

One of Canada's hottest acts in both bop and pop circles! - CNET

Moving effortlessly between musical genres, projects, and influences, highly acclaimed pianist-composer Ron Davis has established himself as one of the most original, enjoyable voices in jazz today.

Ron is active on the worldwide jazz scene and has built a dynamic career including several successful international tours. He cites piano giants Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum and Thelonious Monk as inspirations, but his clean, energetic, joyous playing style is uniquely his own.

Ron is the unusual combination of a virtuoso pianist and an entertainer. He reads audiences and connects, creating a multi-textured musical mix that keeps listeners on the edge of their seats. 

On any given night, Ron's set list might include Coldplay, Beatles, Jimi Hendrix or classic Tatum. The result is a magnificent mix of instrumental and experimental, and as importantly, an unforgettable evening out.

Ron has released nine full-length recordings to international critical praise. In early 2013, he released his eighth title, Blue Modules, an experimental project exploring pop and post-modern jazz. In autumn 2013, he released Symphronica, an innovative jazz-symphony fusion album, made with famed conductor John Morris Russell. 

After early studies at The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Ron studied with Darwyn Aitken—himself a student of jazz legend Peterson, and classical great (and George Gershwin's brother-in-law) David Saperton. In 2005, Ron was awarded the Japan Foundation's prestigious Uchida Fellowship for the Performing Arts, as well as the position of Visiting Scholar at Tokyo's Hosei University. 

When he isn’t wowing audiences around the world, Ron sits on the boards of numerous charities (he is Past Secretary of The Glenn Gould Foundation,) publishes articles on music, law and linguistics, and practices yoga. He is married to the beautiful and highly-hyphenated Daniela Nardi, the award-winning, Italian-Canadian, singer-songwriter of jazz-pop, with whom Ron co-produced her acclaimed Espresso Manifesto recording. The couple call Toronto home.
