Latin Grammy Award-winner Vicente Amigo returns to Los Angeles for one-night only

Latin Grammy Award-winning Flamenco composer and virtuoso guitarist, Vicente Amigo, known as one of the most dazzling Flamenco guitarists of his generation, returns to Los Angeles for one-night only at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, September 20 at 8:00 p.m. Hailing from Córdoba, Spain, Amigo has toured the world receiving many of Spain’s most important awards and honors and is highly respected and admired for his artistic thirst and capacity for innovation and renovation.

Amigo’s litany of international accolade includes a Latin Grammy for Best Flamenco Album (2001), being named Best Guitar Player by Guitar Player Magazine (1993), and winning First Prize at the Flamenco Guitar International Contest (Badajoz 1988). He was nominated for two more Latin Grammy’s in 2006 and 2013 (each for Best Flamenco Album), and won the “Patriarch of Flamenco” Award at the 2010 Flamenco Summit.

Guitar Player Magazine has named Amigo the “Best international Flamenco guitarist,” while Pat Metheny has called Amigo "The greatest guitarist alive.” “Somewhere between poetry and commercial stardom, [Vicente Amigo] represents a new generation of flamenco artists,” according to All About Jazz.

Performing in Amigo’s band are Rafael de Utrera, Vocals; Paquito Gonzalez, Cajón; Añil Fernandez, Second Guitar; Ewen Vernal, Bass; and dancer "El Choro", Antonio Molina.

Amigo’s recording career over the last 30 years is no less impressive, releasing eight albums each embraced by the public and critics, selling hundreds of thousands of units worldwide: De mi Corazón al Aire (1991),Vivencias Imaginadas (1995), Poeta (1997), Latin Grammy-winning Ciudad de las Ideas (2000), Latin Grammy-nominated Un momento en el Sonido (2005), Paseo de Gracia (2009). Tierra (2013 Sony/BMG) emerged as Amigo’s most innovative and global release to date, was nominated for 2013 Latin Grammy. As his eighth studio record, Memoria de los Sentidos (2017 Sony/Legacy), Vicente Amigo is back to his traditional flamenco roots. In this album he has gathered the top active flamenco artists, as Potito, El Pele, Miguel Poveda, Pedro el Granaino, Niña Pastori and even Farruquito, with his incredible dance and “zapateao” on Vicente´s buleria.

Vicente Amigo has also collaborated with José Mercé, Camarón, Sting, Alejandro Sanz, Rosario, Carmen Linares, Manolo Sanlúcar, Khaled and Miguel Bosé, and boasts live performances with John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and Milton Nascimento.

Will Calhoun Celebrates Elvin Jones at Blues Alley
DESCRIPTION

September 22-23, shows at 8 and 10 PM: Not many artists have the vision and artistic energy to be Grammy winners and contribute to so many genres: jazz, rock, hip-hop, ambient, et al, while concurrently producing, touring, creating new projects, working on films, and continually pushing the envelope. Will Calhoun has this creative vision, and he is doing an extraordinary job keeping music a spiritual and motivating force in his life. Although he’s best known as the hard-driving, groove-oriented drummer for the pioneering rock group Living Colour, Will Calhoun has played in a staggering variety of styles and traditions over the course of his eclectic career. Straight-ahead jazz, fusion, traditional African percussion, funk, hip-hop, and of course hard rock — Calhoun has explored them all, and he traces the roots of all of them to one man: legendary drummer Elvin Jones. This 21st century celebration of the great jazz legend Elvin Jones is filled with passion and heart. Iconic drummer Will Calhoun joins forces with Elvin Jones' musical associates Christian McBride, Carlos McKinney, Antoine Roney and Jan Hammer on this Motéma Music recording.

"Celebrating Elvin Jones is an inspired project, vibrant and emotionally honest, but its greatest success may be that it brings Calhoun's boundless energy to lesser-known gems of the Jones songbook." – DownBeat

Joining Will at Blues Alley will be Gerald Cannon (bass), Antoine Roney (sax), and Daniel Vega (piano.) Tickets are $37.75 (+$5 fee) at bluesalleylive.com. The club is located at 1073 Wisconsin Ave NW; phone (202) 337-4141. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

The ukulele is an instrument that is rich with history and tradition originating in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument, which was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants, mainly from Madeira and the Azores and is a member of the lute family of instruments. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone and generally employs four nylon or gut strings or four courses of strings. The ukulele gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century and from there spread internationally.

The ukulele is commonly associated with music from Hawaii where the name roughly translates as "jumping flea,” perhaps because of the movement of the player's fingers. Legend attributes it to the nickname of the Englishman Edward William Purvis, one of King Kalākaua's officers, because of his small size, fidgety manner, and playing expertise. According to Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last Hawaiian monarch, the name means "the gift that came here", from the Hawaiian words uku (gift or reward) and lele (to come).

The ‘uke' has found a unique home for itself in both traditional and popular music. Artists as diverse as Eddie Vedder, Amanda Palmer, Don Ho, and Jason Mraz have all made use of the ukulele over the years to add a special something to their classic songs. A great starting point for musicians of any age, the uke is an easy to learn instrument that will provide a challenge, as well as musical joy, for years to come.

Among the many performers and instructors participating in the 2017 Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival include (check the Festival website for updates):

Lil Rev: A musician, educator, and storyteller of American roots music and culture whose heroes include Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Josh White, Sonny Terry, Cicso Houston and Leadbelly. “Lil Rev isn't an act, he's real.” - Joe Hickerson, Former Head of Library of Congress Folk Archive “Listen to this! Lil Rev is great!” - Pete Seeger

Victoria Vox: From the cover of the Spring Issue of Ukulele Magazine to the front page of The Wall Street Journal, Victoria Vox is making appearances everywhere with performances unique and endearing, captivating an incredibly diverse audience.

Honoka & Azita: Gaining worldwide attention for their electrifying performances, Honoka & Azita are quickly emerging as one of the preeminent ukulele players of the next generation. Energy, fun, passion and pure hearts would best describe this dynamic ukulele duo.

Bicentennial Birth of Baha'u'llah
DESCRIPTION
Good afternoon, I hope this message finds you well. The KKJZ Family and your loyal listeners are invited to join in a world-wide celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh. Bahá’u’lláh—the “Glory of God”—is the Promised One foretold by the Báb and all of the Divine Messengers of the past. Bahá’u’lláh delivered a new Revelation from God to humanity. Thousands of verses, letters and books flowed from His pen. In His Writings, He outlined a framework for the development of a global civilization which takes into account both the spiritual and material dimensions of human life. For this, He endured 40 years of imprisonment, torture and exile.

Please join in Irvine's participation in these global festivities on the evening of October 21, 2017. As Dizzy Gillespie, a member of the Baha'i Faith and a pillar in the jazz community, brought together the influences of Afro-Cuban and Middle Eastern sounds in his music, this celebration is drawing people of all races, creeds, and ethnic backgrounds. We look forward to your response.
