Catching Up with Nino Arobelidze


Nino Arobelidze is a good friend of The Daily Music Break. She’s a singer/song writer with a unique and fresh sound built on her childhood in Tbilisi, Georgia and immersion in jazz, blues and rock. Indeed, Nino has as wide a knowledge base of music as anyone I know.

Exciting things are happening for her. She has an album (“Girl Named Nino”) coming out this month and is coming east from Chicago on May 7 to play Club Bonafide (212 East 52nd Street) in NYC. She’ll appear later in the month in Buffalo.

The site indeed is a friend of Nino: This is the third time we’ve spoken. The first and the second. The tunes at the beginning and end of the podcast are, respectively, “I Wish” and “Meant for You.”

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.


What else is there to say? Here is the story behind every song written by The Beatles. Click here or on the image.


The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
