Florida Blues Band Gets Good Press For Doing Good


Traveling Florida Blues band makes a stop at North End Soup Kitchen for a free performance and Cajun lunch
By Jessica Strachan The Flint Journal
February 18, 2010, 4:47PM

"What could be better than a steaming bowl of chicken gumbo on a cold February day?
A sizzling performance to go with it.


This morning, Catholic Charities' North End Soup Kitchen (NESK) hosted Bill Wharton, “The Sauce Boss,” and his gumbo-making band members Justin Headley (drummer) and Michael Wheeler (bass), to treat more than 150 locals to a Cajun-style lunch and Florida slide guitar blues performance.


This rocking blues-meets-gospel trio is based out of Pensacola, Fla., and travels around the nation performing their music, but between their gigs make stops at the local soup kitchens and homeless shelters for a different kind of show."

Miami Florida Jazz Radio Programming - Update from Robert “Bebob” Grabowski

A Second Open Letter to the Jazz Community:
February 23, 2010

Dear Friends,

It is, without a doubt, the most amazing turn out of public opinion I have ever witnessed – emails – tweets - facebook blogs - media blogs – and old fashioned phone calls – but regardless of the mediums, your message was heard loud and clear and I congratulate each of you for your clarity, passion, and commitment. It worked – WLRN will now have a real local oriented jazz DJ on five nights a week!!!!! Tracy Fields was chosen and I know she will play some really good things.

More importantly, the phenomena of the social media blitz that you created (thanks to everyone who kindly shared their email list for the cause!) allows me to prove what I have been saying for some time – that there really is a very large and diverse and dedicated jazz audience in South Florida. As an educator and a jazz musician, this is a very good thing for all of us to know – that this many people care. We need to remember this!

As to myself, I was honored to facilitate the start of it, but we have to give special kudos to Bob Weinberg (Sun Sentinel) and Erik Maza (Riptide 2.0 New Times) for keeping the story going and keeping everyone informed as to progress. Special thanks to Nicole Henry, who’s i-petition came a few days later and just may have been the icing on the cake that caused WLRN to shift their paradigm! I-petition – who would have thought? My personal thanks to everyone who blistered off an email, called, shared their concern with others, and made it real – thank you all!

On a personal note, I regret to inform you that I have had to resign my position at WLRN. Their idea of punishing me for speaking out was to indefinitely keep me off the air. I felt I had no option but to resign, and so I did last night. I thank all of our listeners for two incredible years of Monday Night Jazz there!

Now, some good news! I have joined the revolution of the 21st century and taken my Jazz Show ONLINE! I have become an educational podcaster and will put up a new one hour show every week – expect a lot of great music, local interviews and albums, and all at an easy website to listen to or download to your ipod to listen to later. It will be up on itunes itself by the end of the week. It will always be a free podcast with no advertising as well.

So welcome to my brand new podosphere:

bebob.podbean.com

Enjoy it and again, thank you for all you each have done for jazz and the South Florida Jazz Community! Keep Jazz live always!!!!!

Americana Woman Music Fest in Tallahassee FL March 19 & 20, 2010


The first annual Tallahassee Americana Woman Music Fest will be held March 19th and 20th. Nine acts from around the Southeast will be performing on three stages during this celebration of women artists in Americana music. All acts are either headlined by women, or the majority of the players in the band are women.


Americana music comes from the traditions of roots music in the United States. Its breadth and reach includes artists like Gram Parsons and Bob Dylan, Wilco and The Avett Brothers, Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and The Band. The Americana sound is decidedly different than the more pop oriented radio formats of rock and contemporary country. A Grammy Award was presented in the Americana category for the first time this year, with Levon Helm winning the award.


The festival is comprised of three staged events over two days.


  • Friday Night, March 19, 7:00pm, at the American Legion Hall on Lake Ella. Five acts performing.

  • Saturday Day, March 20, 1:30 pm, at Bird’s Oyster on Bronough St. Girl’s and Guitars. Individual artists playing original music with their guitars in an in-the-round format.

  • Saturday Night, March 20, 7:00pm, at the American Legion. Five Acts performing.

A wristband for entry into all three events may be purchased for $15 at the venues, or
in advance at Gordon’s String Music or The Music Center.



Day-of-show, tickets for that day may be purchased at the venues for $10

Radio Free Carmela, Bradenton, FL
The Mayhaws, Tallahassee, FL

Live Arts Florida Sets New Jazz Concert Date for 'An Evening with Copeland Davis & Friends'


Wellington, FL - February 22, 2010 - On Saturday, March 13th, 2010, Live Arts Florida will host pianist Copeland Davis and friends at the new, 800 seat WCHS Theatre in Wellington, FL. The concert, which was originally planned to take place at 7:30pm on Sunday, February 28th has been reset to the new date at 8:00pm with doors opening at 7:15pm. This performance promises to be outstanding as Copeland Davis performs as a quintet format playing jazz standards and original compositions.


Whether it is solo piano, combo or teamed with a full orchestra, Copeland Davis resounds with a stage presence that makes every performance a magical musical experience. Combining his vast musical skills with a special brand of showmanship taught to him by the great Cholly Atkins, Davis electrifies audiences everywhere. A standing ovation was the audience response when Davis made his national TV debut on the Tonight Show; he's appeared twice on Good Morning America, and a variety of local shows. Davis has also appeared on numerous radio talk and personal TV interview shows in New York, Florida and various other states and has received notable reviews in Variety, The Miami Herald, The Boston Globe, The Sun-Sentinel, Palm Beach Post, New York Times and many other newspapers and magazines. He has had multiple television specials; one which was nominated for an Emmy Award.


As one music critic said, "He is a special person. He captivates the audience when he plays and he makes it fun. He has phenomenal technique on the piano. He combines mechanical proficiency with spontaneous artistic creativity. Davis can explore the possibilities of any number of tunes, while still remaining in the boundaries of tight musicianship."


For the last ten years, Copeland has performed with the Florida Sunshine Pops Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Joe Ferrer of Sunset Productions, Inc. To quote the world famous Richard Hayman, Orchestral Conductor and Arranger of the Sunshine Pops, "Copeland Davis is a resident of Florida and is an incredible pianist. He plays everything from classical to jazz. I always look forward to conducting his arrangements which are exciting and unique."


Copeland was appointed to the Boca Pops Orchestra as "Pianist-In-Residence for five years. To quote the Late Maestro Mark Azzolina, Orchestral Conductor of the Pops, "We've engaged Copeland Davis as pianist in residence because we feel he is one of America's foremost Symphonic Jazz Piano innovators. He not only has extensive training in Classical performance but his Jazz improvisational capability is in a class by itself." Copeland, also, received a one-term appointment as Instructor of Jazz Music History at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, his alma mater, where he received a BFA degree in music composition and arranging.


Concert tickets may be purchased at the door, over the phone or online. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting http://www.tickets.liveartsfl.org/ or over the phone by calling 888.841.ARTS from 11am to 11pm Tickets to the concerts for adults are $24 for Orchestra and $28 for Mezzanine; Members $5 off. Tickets for students with ID may be purchased for $5 off (select normal ticket and click on discount code).


Sponsors of Live Arts Florida include Wellington the Magazine, the Town Crier, and Phelps Media Group, Inc. International; additional sponsorships are welcome.

Sanborn, Wilson, Sample to Perform at Miami Gardens Florida "JAZZ IN THE GARDENS"

JAZZ LEGENDS
DAVID SANBORN, CASSANDRA WILSON & JOE SAMPLE
SET TO PERFORM AT THE 5TH ANNUAL “JAZZ IN THE GARDENS”



Highly Anticipated Music Festival – March 20th & 21st, 2010

MIAMI GARDENS, FL – Jazz legends, David Sanborn, Cassandra Wilson and Joe Sample are set to take the stage during the 5th Annual “Jazz in the Gardens” hosted by #1 rated, nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner, Saturday, March 20th and Sunday, March 21st at Sun Life Stadium (formerly Dolphin Stadium), 2269 Dan Marino Blvd, Miami Gardens, Florida 33056. Internationally-known and well-respected, these jazz musicians are at the top of the genre, oftentimes pulling in audiences of over 6,000 on their own bill.

Sanborn, Wilson and Sample are just three of the artists on the star-studded line-up for the nearly sold-out festival. Other confirmed artists include the queen of R&B, Mary J. Blige; R&B crooner, Robin Thicke; Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter, John Legend; 90s R&B/pop super group, Boyz II Men; funk/R&B diva, Teena Marie; Grammy nominated R&B vocalist, Melanie Fiona; and R&B newcomer, K’Jon.

“Jazz is definitely alive and well at ‘Jazz in the Gardens’ in the form of Joe Sample, David Sanborn and Cassandra Wilson,” stated event producer, Leon Saunders of Saunders Entertainment Group. “We are absolutely thrilled to have these major acts headlining ‘Jazz in the Gardens’ and bringing their revolutionary jazz sound to our festival.”

Although some may find it strange to fuse together the musical styles of the aforementioned jazz legends with the funk of Teena Marie and the soul and R&B of John Legend, it’s one of the main draws of “Jazz in the Gardens.” It invites a plethora of musical styles to come together and form the kind of “super-concert” that can only be found in one of the most diverse and culturally-rich cities in the nation, Miami Gardens.

Jazz in the Gardens, a two-day weekend festival is now in its fifth year, has grown to be one of the top cultural events in South Florida. The jazz festival delivers a diverse mix of music genres that range from jazz, R&B, Caribbean and African sounds. Having something to offer all music aficionados at an affordable price, the 4th Annual Jazz in the Gardens shattered expected ticket sales, enjoying an attendance of almost 40,000, which was more than double the sales of the 2008 festival. In 2009, the Jazz in the Gardens crowd enjoyed the hip-hop flavor of Common, the beautiful neo-soul melodies of Erykah Badu, the smooth R&B of Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds and the crowd-stopping soul of Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, among other a-list artists.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS



The iconic David Sanborn truly merits his position as a saxophonist, unrivaled as a player who straddles the pop and jazz worlds while commanding respect in both. In pop, he is justly famed for his standout solo on David Bowie’s 1975 hit “Young Americans” – one of many celebrated recording projects that evolved out of Sanborn’s live supporting roles. Indeed, his matchless tone has additionally been sought to bolster performances by the esteemed liked of Eric Clapton, The Eagles, The Rolling Stones, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Miles Davis, Bruce Springsteen and Steve Wonder – many of whom have likewise gone on to enlist Sanborn’s inimitable sax presence in the studio. Sanborn’s high visibility live and on record is only part of his story. His music has been heard in films, most notably on the Michael Kamen penned scores for the “Lethal Weapon” movies. His television work includes the theme for “Saturday Night Live,” sitting in regularly with the Late Night with David Letterman band, and hosting the dearly-remembered “Night Music.” The six-time Grammy winner has consistently recorded his own albums, and since his first album Taking Off from 1975, through his acclaimed Closer from 2005, he has rarely gone over two years between releases. Sanborn’s new album, Here and Gone, is the 23rd solo album of Sanborn’s extraordinary career and features guests such as Eric Clapton, Sam Moore and Joss Stone.



One of the many jazzmen who started out playing hard bop but went electric during the fusion era, Joe Sample was, in the late ‘50s, a founding member of the Jazz Crusaders along with trombonist, Wayne Henderson; tenor saxophonist, Wilton Felder; and drummer, Stix Hooper. Sample, a hard-swinging player who could handle chordal and modal/scalar improvisation equally well, stuck to the acoustic piano during the Crusaders’ early years – but would place greater emphasis on electric keyboards when the band turned to jazz-funk in the early ‘70s. Although Sample had recorded as a trio pianist on 1969’s obscure Fancy Dance, 1978’s Rainbow Seeker was often described as his first album as a leader. Since the early 1980’s, he has enjoyed a successful solo career and has guested on many recordings by other performers and groups, including Miles Davis, George Benson, Jimmy Witherspoon, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan and The Supremes.



Defying categorization and convention, Cassandra Wilson never fails to surprise and inspire. Sexy, honey-velvet vocals wrapped around her own jazzy blue compositions or inventive interpretations of others’ material led TIME magazine to name her “America’s Best Singer” in recent years. Wilson’s journey can be traced back to Mississippi where she was raised by musician and educator parents. In the eighties, Wilson moved to New Orleans and performed with Earl Turbinton and Ellis Marsalis. Quite by accident, she was relocated to East Orange, New Jersey where she made the decision to take her chances on the New York jazz scene. Her development can be tracked through her discography. From the standards on Blue Skies to the Grammy-winning New Moon Daughter, to the combination of originals and interpretations played by a collection of Mississippi and New York musicians on both the 2001 release, Belly of the Sun, and 2003’s Glamoured, to the 2006 T-Bone Burnett produced Thunderbird, Cassandra continues to evolve. On her acclaimed 2009 release, Loverly, Wilson returns to a more stripped down jazz setting, and gives a tantalizing, rhythmically driven collection of jazz standards new luster.

Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased at the Sun Life Stadium Box Office, www.jazzinthegardens.com or http://www.ticketmaster.com/. Ticket prices range anywhere from $55 for a one-day ticket to $125 for the two-day ticket; an amazing value given the fact that the concert is completely loaded with a star-studded line-up. Furthermore, the experience of the event goes beyond music, offering food, shopping and sophisticated pleasures.

Gold Coast Jazz Society Presents Tony DeSare Jazz Trio in Ft. Lauderdale Florida



Jazz Singer Tony DeSare Celebrates the Music of Mercer

Fort Lauderdale, FL – 2009 marked the centennial of the renowned lyricist, Johnny Mercer. Mercer collaborated with some of the century’s greatest songwriters and wrote the lyrics to some of the most popular songs of the Great American Songbook. Some of Mercer’s best songs come alive as the jazz/singer/songwriter/pianist, Tony DeSare, performs with his jazz trio for the Gold Coast Jazz Society. The performance will occur on Wednesday, March 10 at the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW 5th Ave, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The jazz show begins at 7:45 pm. Single tickets are $35 and $40 and student tickets are $12 with student ID. Purchase tickets through the Broward Center Box Office at 954-462-0222 or online at www.goldcoastjazz.org or www.browardcenter.org. A pre-concert Jazz Riff jazz talk will be given by WXEL FM radio personality, Stu Grant, at 7:00pm in the theater before the show. If you love the music of the swing and big band era, this is a show not to miss.



Singer, pianist and songwriter Tony DeSare -- whose third CD Radio Show was recently released by Telarc Records -- has won critical and popular acclaim from his concert performances throughout the United States as well as Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. In early 2009, launched an international tour with three weeks at the Algonquin Hotel’s Oak Room in New York, two weeks in London, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, St. Louis and Palm Beach. "With his dark hair, bright brown eyes and toothpaste smile that rarely fades," raved The New York Times, "DeSare is one of the most promising young male performers. He is a Sinatra acolyte in his early 30s who sings Prince as well as Johnny Mercer." According to USA Today, "DeSare belongs to a group of neo-traditional upstarts stretching from Harry Connick Jr, to Michael Bublé and Jamie Cullum. DeSare covers old and newer pop and jazz standards without smothering or over-thinking the material." His takes on classic standards and sophisticated original compositions have earned him a reputation as one of country’s hottest young singer/pianists. His sound is romantic, swinging and sensual, but what sets Tony apart is his ability to write original material that sounds fresh and at the same time blends seamlessly with the Great American Songbook. Tony has the capability to glide from a standard by George Gershwin to a contemporary classic by Bob Dylan or Phil Collins to one of his inventive original songs with ease. Go to www.tonydesare.com for more about this artist.

Tickets are still available for the March 10 performance. The Gold Coast Jazz Society is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of jazz music through a mainstage concert series, free community concerts, jazz education programs and other events. Go online www.goldcoastjazz.org for more information about the Gold Coast Jazz Society or call 954-524-0805.

WLRN in Miami Florida Decides to NOT Replace Jazz Host with Auto-programming - Tracy Fields to Return

Resolution has been reached in the controversy at WLRN in Miami. The following is from a posting today at the SunSentinel.

WLRN names new host for weeknight jazz broadcast
By Bob Weinberg, Special Correspondent
1:16 p.m. EST, February 17, 2010

"Popular former WLRN jazz DJ Tracy Fields has been named host of the public radio station's weeknight jazz broadcast, replacing longtime jazz jock Len Pace, according to Peter J. Maerz, the station's programming and operations manager.

A few weeks ago, the prospects for local jazz programming on WLRN (91.3-FM) seemed grim. In a mass e-mail, part-time jazz host Bob "Bebob" Grabowski said he expected the station to significantly cut its decades-long commitment to locally generated jazz broadcasts. The move was expected to coincide with the retirement of Pace, whose last show airs Feb. 26."
