5th Annual Tangerine Blues Fest in Gulfport FL set for Sept 29, 2012

TYRONE SQUARE MAZDA PRESENTS
THE TANGERINE BLUES FEST
Sean Chambers Headlines 5th Annual Event
Sept. 29, 2012


 MAP

What began in 2008 as a small music event to shine a light on the business corridor along 49th Street South in St. Petersburg and Gulfport has blossomed into one of the Bay Area’s most formidable blues festivals. This year’s Tangerine Blues Fest will be held on Saturday, September 29 on an outdoor stage at 49th Street and Tangerine Ave. So. (18th Ave. So.) Admission is free. So is parking. The concert is produced by the 49th Street South Business Association (so49.org). Last year’s show drew nearly 6,000 people to the quaint, tree-lined stretch of grass to bask in blues, beer, food and fun.

Firebrand singer/guitarist Sean Chambers headlines this year’s festival. The homegrown product has toured with guitar legend Hubert Sumlin and carved out a substantial career on the international blues scene. In 2001, Great Britain’s
Guitarist magazine named him one of the Fifty Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Also appearing on the bill will be Gulfport’s own Blues Hall of Famer Sterling Magee, gritty R&B singer Betty Fox Band, and Tampa-based No Money Down. Gates will open at 3 p.m. Live music runs until 10pm.
Signifying the TBF’s growth, Tyrone Square Mazda has signed on as title sponsor, making the event’s official name "Tyrone Square Mazda Presents the Tangerine Blues Festival." Newchannel 8 (WFLA-TV) has joined as media sponsor. Other sponsors are the City of Gulfport and the City of St. Petersburg.

So49.org is an association of 23 independent business owners dedicated to promoting commerce and culture on the historic strip that runs from Central Avenue to Boca Ciega Bay on 49
th Street South.
No Money Down, 4-5pm
Sterling Magee, 5:30-6:30pm
Betty Fox Band, 7-8pm
Sean Chambers, 8:30-10pm

Brazilian Jazz Music Master Antonio Adolfo offers Classes in Hollywood Florida



2040 Sherman St., Hollywood FL 33020 
antonioadolfo.net (786)586-1527

Antonio Adolfo is an important composer, having written songs recorded by many Brazilian artists such as Nara Leao, Marisa Gata Mansa, Angela Ro Ro, Wilson Simonal, Ivete Sangalo, Leci Brandao, Emilio Santiago, Beth Carvalho and international, such as Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Stevie Wonder and Herb Alpert among others. Adolfo also had a noted role in the process of making important music available through independent production, through the creation of the pioneer independent label Artezanal. His recordings of important and almost-forgotten composers of the belle epoque, like Chiquinha
Gonzaga, Ernesto Nazareth and Joao Pernambuco, are noted cultural initiatives. As an arranger, he worked for several musicians and singers. The son of Yolanda Maurity, a music teacher and violinist of the orchestra of the Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, Antonio Adolfo began to study music very early. At seven, he began his violin studies with Paulina D'Ambrozzio. At 15, he took up piano, studying with Amyrton Vallim and with the internationally renowned Eumir Deodato. In 1963, he joined the group Samba Cinco, which performed in the famous Beco das Garrafas on Rio's 52nd street. In 1964 Adolfo was invited by Carlos Lyra and Vinicius de Moraes to be a musician for their play Pobre Menina Rica (at Teatro de Bolso), beginning to accompany important names of MPB. Adolfo formed the group 3-D for that gig, and continued to perform with it until 1968, having recorded four LPs. In that year, he became acquainted with Tiberio Gaspar, with whom he wrote important songs such as “Juliana,” “Sa Marina,” “Teletema,” and “BR-3.” “Caminhada” made it to the finals of the II FIC (Rio's International Song Contest), 1967. The next year, Wilson Simonal recorded “Sa Marina” with success. In that year “Visao” was included in the III FIC. In 1969 Adolfo accompanied Elis Regina in her tour through Europe. Back to Brazil in the same year, he wrote music for soap operas and participated in the IV FIC (1969) with “Juliana” (written with Tiberio). The song was defended by Adolfo's group A Brazuca, and took second place. With that group he toured Brazil and Peru, recording two albums through Odeon. In 1970, “Teletema” (with Tiberio) took second place in an International Festival (Song Olympiad) in Athens, Greece, in Evinha's interpretation, which achieved popular success also in Brazil. “BR-3” won the national phase of the V FIC, in Toni Tornado's interpretation. In 1971 Adolfo moved to the U.S.. Adolfo was a member of the band that backed Elis Regina in two European tours, finding time in between for a stint with the classical Nadia Boulanger, having studied also with Guerra Peixe and Esther Scliar. Back in Brazil, he developed his career as pianist, arranger, and producer. But even more deserving of attention is his work as a pioneer in the independent production field, which awakened artists and public to the necessity of opening alternative routes to non-commercial productions. In 1977 he launched his independent label Artezanal with the album Feito em Casa, with only originals. The LP Encontro Musical was released in the same year. The album had the participation of Joyce and Erasmo Carlos. Viralata (1979) an instrumental classic album had mainly originals, and Continuidade had special guests. In 1984 Adolforeleased through the label Funarte a tribute album dedicated to the compositions of Joao Pernambuco, with participation of No em Pingo D'agua. In 1985 he paid tribute to Chiquinha Gonzaga, a seminal Brazilian female conductor, pianist, and composer, interpreting her songs in Viva Chiquinha Gonzaga, with participation of Nilson Chaves and Vital Lima. The album Os Pianeiros is dedicated to belle epoque piano composers. In the same year he participated in the first Carioca experience of teaching popular music/jazz in the Centro Calouste Gulbenkian, together with Pascoal Meirelles, Helio Delmiro, Ary Piassarollo, Paulo Russo, and others. Seeing the potential of the sector, he opened his Centro Musical Antonio Adolfo, also developing workshops in the U.S. and Europe. Adolfo published music education material in Brazil and abroad, including the video Secrets of Brazilian Music and two books with companion CD Brazilian Music Workshop (1996) and Phrasing In Brazilian Music (2007), both published by Advance Music, together with seven other books through Lumiar publishing (Brazil). In 1996 he received the Premio Sharp award for his instrumental composition “Cristalina,” from his album Cristalino (1993). In 1997 released Chiquinha com Jazz (Artezanal), which also was awarded the Premio Sharp, and so was the album Antonio Adolfo. Since then Adolfo released the CDs Puro Improviso, Viralata, Feito em Casa, Os Pianeiros, Carnaval Piano Blues and Antonio Adolfo & Carol Saboya Ao vivo/Live, this one was released both in Brasil and in the US. In 2010 came the CD Antonio Adolfo and Carol Saboya La e Ca/ Here and There. In September 2011, Antonio Adolfo Chora BaiĆ£o, a CD dedicated to Brazilian great composers Chico Buarque and Guinga was released and had been awarded in five categories by the Latin Jazz Corner. In 2012, Adolfo is releasing Carol Saboya - Belezas - The Music of Ivan Lins and Milton Nascimento, through his own label AAM Music.

what a difference a day makes...in the life of Al Kanovsky


Submitted by Al Kanovsky, 8/26/12

"What a difference a day makes. 24 little hours" Yep!!! Only 24 hours but 100 years apart. Friday night Flo and I were at the Big Easy listening to Graham Wood Drout and his band playing BLUES. Saturday night we were at Art's Garage listening to Jonathan Kreisberg and his band playing today’s JAZZ. Jonathan’s music is at the cutting edge of modern JAZZ. His experiments with harmonics and rhythmic patterns keep you on the edge of your seat, paying close attention to the nuance of the sounds. Joining him on stage were Will Vinson (alto sax and piano), Joe Martin (bass) and Mark Ferber (drums). The audience included some South Florida JAZZ notables, namely Davis & Dow, Jamie Ousley, Nanami Morikawa, Paul Shewchuk and Dr. Lonnie Smith. Young Ben Stocker (tenor sax) a member of the award winning Dillard High School Band was there to listen and be enlightened. We were lucky to have as table-mates, journalist and musician, Bill Meredith, who writes for Jazz & Blues Florida (He wrote the cover story in the August edition of Jazz & Blues Florida on Jonathan) and JAZZIZ and web designer Jerry Kornbluth. Both are very knowledgeable JAZZophiles so it made for interesting, informative conversation. Solos by Vinson, Martin and Ferber were impressive and Jonathan himself is as sensitive a musician as I have ever heard. Again, I was surprised that a mostly "mature" audience was held in rapt attention, through the two sets, thoroughly enjoying  the music presented.

BLUES were born more than 100 years ago----JAZZ is its child and continues to grow---100 years but only a day apart---What a difference a day makes. 
p.s. coming soon in the Love Story category---Jamie and Nanami---a tale of true love.

Loozin' the blues - Al saz goodbye to the blues and Hello to Flo & Graham


Submitted by Al Kanovsky, 8/25/12

Flo has finally returned to the "scene". So, I am relieved of the blue funk that has enveloped me over the past several weeks. What better way to say goodbye and looz those blues than to go out and listen to some really jamming BLUES. The Big Easy on Hollywood Blvd. proved to be the spot to do that in. Graham Wood Drout returned to the live music venue, slimmer, trimmer and in better health. Even more dynamic than before, he was fronting a great BLUES band. I will start with Emmy Award winner, John Ryan, playing a Hammond XK1. Did I say play? This was not play. This was a serious artist doing some wonderful stuff on an electronic instrument. Flo was as glad as I that this is how we chose to looz our lonely BLUES. Not quite enough? Okay!! Now, Nicole Yarling on BLUES violin. The absolute professor of the art. She followed artistry with R&R fun, singing "Go Jim Dandy" & "Baby Don't You Want To Go". I am truly sorry that I didn't get the rest of the sextets names because everyone on that stage was outstanding. Flo felt it was a great way to have a Welcome Home party. So did I. Tonight it's Art's Garage for Jonathan Kreisberg and then Monday the MJC Rent Party at the Stage. Dana Paul doing a tribute to "Blood, Sweat and Tears" The featured act at the Rent Party is preceded by an hour long JAZZ Jam and followed by another JAZZ Jam that continues 'til closing. If you play or listen, don't miss this one.
