Earlier in the month, a crew of well-loved musicians gathered at Asheville Music Hall under the banner Marcus King, Justin Stanton & Friends. For this lineup, the young guitar prodigy, Marcus King, and Justin Stanton, who holds down trumpet and keys for Snarky Puppy, tapped some of their favorite musicians from the region and beyond to help celebrate the birthday of Empire Strikes Brass and Travers Brothership trombonist Kyle Snuffer while also doubling as a going-away party for The Digs and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra drummer Jaze Uries. Other musicians on the lineup for this massive super jam included Simon Thomas George (keys/moog; The Digs, Siamese Sound Club), Josh Clark (bass; Travers Brothership), Alex Bradley (trumpet; Empire Strikes Brass, Travers Brothership), Ben Colvin (saxophone; Juan Benavides Group, Pleasure Chest), and Marcus King’s bandmate in Marcus King Band, saxophonist Dean Mitchell.Recently, Barry2theB released a gorgeous pro-shot video of a song from the jubilant super jam. His video captures the super group’s collaboration on a cover of Herbie Hancock’s “Butterfly,” a number off Herbie’s 1974 album, Thrust. Marcus King, Justin Stanton & Friends rendition of the instrumental song features a similar fluid and sultry, horn-heavy introduction. As the song progresses, trumpeter Justin Stanton takes center stage with his own energized solo, effectively stealing the show at its onset, before Marcus King tags in and lays down his own frenetic solo, switching off the lead with Simon Thomas George on the keys. You can check out the video for yourself below. Enjoy!

Despite the surge in remote working arrangements among companies in Indonesia, demand for office space is expected to return after the COVID-19 pandemic passes, according to property consultant Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) Indonesia.The current health crisis might even lead to expansions in office space, as companies try to accommodate needs for physical distancing among their employees in the post-pandemic era, the firm stated.JLL Indonesia head of research James Taylor said that Jakarta might experience the most significant impact from the pandemic on new leasing deals in the second quarter, as businesses continue to implement work-from-home arrangements. For example, JLL noted that millennials in the region struggled with smaller apartment sizes, slow internet connectivity and the need to juggle family duties while working from home. Meanwhile, offices still play a central role in creating spaces for collaboration and interaction and for boosting staff morale and productivity.“The office, as we know it, will evolve. Owners and investors who can take advantage of this opportunity to think about long-term redevelopment plans and designing or refitting their facilities will benefit greatly,” Couse said.Companies might also consider flexible options such as coworking spaces as an alternative to short-and-medium-term expansion plans, JLL notes.Previously, real estate services firm Colliers International projected that if more companies implemented remote working arrangements, demand for office space was expected to drop, according to its report released in April.Topics : “However, we expect tenant demand to return once the worst of the crisis has passed. In some ways, COVID-19 is accelerating the changes to the workplace that were already coming,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.In the first quarter this year, leasing activity in the Asia Pacific region dropped 9 percent from the previous quarter last year, even though a 14 percent increase year-on-year (yoy) was recorded, JLL data show. Vacancy rates have remained stagnant at 10.9 percent in the region.“We think offices will remain central to people’s daily business life,” said JLL Asia Pacific CEO Anthony Couse. “Looking ahead, we believe that this is a resilient sector that will continue to draw long-term investor interest and confidence.”He added that despite a seemingly successful global adaptation to work-from-home arrangements, offices would continue to be sought after the pandemic, as remote working might not be a sustainable or optimum long-term option for all companies.
Press Association It is understood the Baggies are unhappy with Spurs’ approach to the deal, which only strengthened their resolve to keep Berahino, who scored 20 goals last term. West Brom instantly rejected Tottenham’s two bids on Tuesday which were believed to only be marginally better than the north London club’s second offer, made last month, which would have only risen to £21million with clauses and add-ons. Players’ union chief Gordon Taylor has advised Berahino against carrying out his strike threat at West Brom. The Professional Footballers’ Association has offered its help to the Baggies and Berahino following the striker’s suggestion on Twitter he was prepared to down tools after Albion blocked a move to Tottenham on Tuesday. Peace rejected four bids in all from Spurs, including the two on deadline day. Berahino’s Twitter message read: “Sad how i cant say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play Jeremy Peace.” The player has been given until Monday off as West Brom look to take the sting out of the situation but it is understood he will be disciplined. The 22-year-old is expected to hold talks with head coach Tony Pulis on his return and Taylor, chief executive of the PFA, wants the matter resolved without any further issues. “Players know if they come to the end of a contract they have that right to move but if it’s during a contract there are other factors involved and it can’t be taken for granted. It’s always better for players to be playing,” Taylor told Press Association Sport. “Things can be said in the heat of the moment and contracts work both ways but players need to play and keep fit. “Young men are young men and sometimes things are said which are regretted. “We’re in a world of social media and a lot of our young players are expected to have old heads on young shoulders and sometimes can let off steam. “People get disappointed and sometimes things are done that, on reflection, wouldn’t be out in the public domain and we’re hoping that situation will be understood.” Taylor believes Berahino can be reintegrated into the Albion squad after being left out for their last three matches by Pulis. He said: “I hope so, sometimes that’s not always possible but for the most part it is.” Peace said on Wednesday: “Tottenham’s offers failed substantially to reflect Saido’s true value while the timing made no allowance for our own recruitment of a suitable replacement for a proven Premier League goalscorer. “Saido has been unsettled to the point where our head coach has not felt able to select him for our last three games. We are now left with the task of repairing the damage created by this unfortunate episode.” It sparked a response from Levy. Without naming West Brom as the target of his frustration, Levy forcefully defended Tottenham’s approach in the transfer market. He also said it was wrong for clubs to make public the news of players requesting transfers, as West Brom did in the case of Berahino last week. Levy said: “We have never, as a club, spoken about another team’s players and I am not about to do so now. However, I do want to make a few general points regarding transfers. “Firstly, there is hardly a transfer concluded across Europe which doesn’t include staged payments. This is particularly so when significant amounts such as £20m-£30m are involved – players don’t come cheaply these days. “Secondly, we do not make anything personal. None of the proposals, discussions or negotiations we undertake involve any personal elements or ego – everything we do is in the interest of what is best for our club. “Thirdly, we never make anything public, particularly in the best interests of the players involved. Making aspects such as transfer requests public is wholly disrespectful to a player.” Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has hit back at West Brom after his counterpart Jeremy Peace said Saido Berahino was “unsettled” by interest from White Hart Lane.
