Welcome to February. This month is Black History Month and to honor the history of African- Americans, we highlighted the African-American Music Trails of Eastern North Carolina. African-Americans have played an integral part in shaping the music — and the art of music — into what we know today. From spiritu- als to blues to rock 'n' roll to jazz, musicians from, or con- nected to, Eastern North Car- olina have pushed the art of music to the forefront. Without musicians such as Thelonious Monk, who was from the state, to Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington who frequented Kinston, music today would not be what it is. Jazz, which many popular African-American musicians play, is also in the mix in this edition. We have highlighted the passion of local saxophonist Eric Xavier Daw- son as well as what the North Caroli- na Jazz Festival in Wilmington has to offer. If you aren't too hip on the jazz genre, as recent artists aren't real- ly making it to the top of the pop charts, then we have you cov- ered again. I made two sugges- tions of recent albums you may want to check out. They will not disappoint. And let's not forget Valentine's Day. We have a couple of suggestions for sweet, romantic treats you can make for your loved one. And if cooking and baking isn't your thing, take a trip to Asheville. We at GO! hope you have a great February, rich with love, history and smooth melodies. Check out our website for our upcoming events! Find the perfect gift for your setie at our great stores!
