Rhythms with a cause

Files that are hard to believe, TRAP celebrates its 25th birthday, with a view to semi-retirement. Part of a long-standing tradition, Saturday, September 24’s All-Star Fundraiser Party at the Lobero Theater will serve as both a post-pandemic celebration and a moving swan song for one of music therapy’s most worthy of the region.

A little story is needed, of course, for those who have not followed the saga. The story begins over a quarter century ago on a beach in Carpinteria, when a body surfing accident left the session drummer Eddie Tuduri in a paralyzed state. Frustrated with his inability to live his musical life as he had for decades, and with a desire to be of service to those in need, Tuduri started TRAP (The Rhythmic Arts Project). Its central concept is to reach people with disabilities, using percussion and collective music as an expressive and therapeutic tool. Since then, TRAP has expanded to several countries.

Part of the fundraising strategy was the logical decision to engage with the community by presenting concerts, often with well-established musicians in and beyond the drumming-percussion circles in which Tuduri was rooted. Lobero shows, also including auctions and other special features, have been notable highlights in Santa Barbara’s music calendar for years, though they disappeared during the COVID era.

Tuduri, now 75, proclaimed Saturday’s event would be the last major eruption, although he noted that smaller events could be possible in the future. “I’ll always want to get together and jam with my friends, he says.

Among the many memorable moments of the TRAP Lobero Benefit Memory Banks were appearances by Bill Champlin and Michael McDonald on the microphone/keyboards, and a contagious duo between master Brazilian percussionist Air to Moreira and the talented student TRAP Dion.

Joining founding drummer and creator of musical connections Tuduri on stage will be musicians from the malleable band known as Pocketsincluding Luis Conte, Kenny Lewis and Diane Steinberg (of the band Steve Miller), guitarist Derol Caracokeyboardist Jimmy Clairebass player Steve Nelsonsingers Leslie Lembo and Shawn Thies…and not least, star TRAP students like Dion, Karen, Zayde, Ryan and Well. Massive grooves – with a cause – are on the menu.



Blues Surf Report

Byl Carruthers | 1 credit

On Sunday afternoon (September 25) at the Community Arts Workshop, the blues pays a serious visit to town, in terms of livewire sounds and respects to local flame keepers. This will be the first post-pandemic event organized by the intrepid and venerable Santa Barbara Blues Societycoming off mothballs after almost three years.

At the heart of the show is a memorial tribute to two important blues-related guitarists who sadly passed away this year: slide guitar master Tom Murray (of Stiff Pickle Orchestra and other entities) and R&B powerhouse Byl Carruthers (from Café R&B, with soul singer Roach co-starring) are gone, but hardly forgotten. To pay tribute to them and raise funds for their families, the Blues Society has rallied groups kings of paradise, East Valley Roadand the Rent Party Blues Band to stir up a ruckus of blues for the occasion. See SBBlues.org.

Speaking of onstage blues, one of the fiery, hot, and cool gigs in town recently took place on Louisiana Night Tab Benoit fueled his blues-rock-swampy trio at the Lobero Theatre. A slew of scorching guitar playing, more blues-rock and spectrum southern rock than deep blues, culminated in a triple-threat guitar jam at the end of the show, when Benoit brought up his friend Alastair Green — Santa Barbara’s excellent blues-rock hero who made himself known throughout the world — and concert opener JD Simo for a riff-swapping bonanza. “Just when you thought you had enough guitar in your life…” joked the charismatic Benoit, with a smirk.

Personally, my favorite of the three that night was Simo, whose slick, clever slide guitar work – falling beautifully into the thrilling post-Derek Trucks camp – dabbles in jazz and other influences, as does his fretwork. and his musical voice. There’s a restless sense of adventure to his playing, unlike the more hubris riffing of much of lead guitar culture. Simo reminds us that the blues, like all good genres, is open to new ideas and conceptual nudges.

Air over Healdsburg:

Here are the top 3 stories from today in Healdsburg:

  1. Foss Creek The path through the city could see its security poles – or “bollards” – removed in the near future, if Healdsburg City Council member Ariel Kelley is successful. She “submitted a proposal to remove the safety posts from the city’s Foss Creek Trail,” the PD reports, “in response to the Death of Rob Reyes, a Santa Rosa chief who died Aug. 23 after hitting a safety post while riding his bike on a West County trail. cyclists who often ride tightly in groups and cannot easily avoid them. She said she rides the Healdsburg bike path every day, often with her son and daughter, ages 6 and 8. “I think they (the bollards) are generally really hard to navigate, she said. ‘I definitely hit a couple, usually just by bumping into them. My children meet them all the time. “”The full city council plans to discuss Kelley’s proposal at its regular Monday night meeting – and “if a majority of members agree the matter needs to be addressed, the policy will be introduced at a future meeting, likely in about a month, Kelley said.” (Press Democrat; paywall)
  2. Healdsburg Tourism Improvement District expects $200,000 in grants for anyone who wants to organize “arts, culture and education” that will inspire people to come and stay in Healdsburg. Grant applications will be accepted from now until September 30 for projects taking place between November 2022 and April 2023. “Priority is given to events or projects that encourage visits during the generally slow season (November-March) and mid-week,” said a tourist district representative. “Over the past few years, grants have been awarded to Corazon Healdsburg, the Alexander Valley Film Festival, the Jazz Festival of Healdsburg, Healdsburg Center for the Arts, Tuesday Concerts in the Plaza, Healdsburg Museum, Dia De Los Muertos Events, 4th of July Parade and Duck Dash, and much more.” This year’s winners will be announced on October 20. Here’s how to request some of the money. (SurveyMonkey and Healdsburg patch)
  3. If you missed the Healdsburg City Council Candidates Forum earlier this week in Coyote Sonoma — or just want to know more about who’s on the ballot this fall — the Healdsburg Tribune just unfolded a bit Q&A with the four candidates vying for two term seats on the board. Health coach Linda Cade, local businesswoman Susan Graf, sales manager Chris Herrod and incumbent Evelyn Mitchell answer the following questions: “What are the main reasons you are running for a city council seat? ” ; “What specific experience or qualifications will you bring to the city council? » ; “How do you think the council can better represent its constituents?” »; and “What do you think visitors should know about Healdsburg?”. The Tribune says they will publish similar questions and answers from the other three candidates, vying for the midterm seat, in next week’s issue. (Tribune of Healdsburg)

Healdsburg pic of the day:

On Monday, Lambert Bridge Winery in Healdsburg shared this photo of their harvest. “Happy Sauvignon Blanc day from the Bevill vineyard!” they wrote. “Today we bring about 10 tons of this beautiful fruit to the winery. Hailing from the far south of the Dry Creek Valley, near the fog-laden Russian River Valley, longtime friend Duff Bevill and Vineyard Manager, has over 45 years of experience growing and meticulously cultivating this fruit with unparalleled attention to detail – a perfect fit with our philosophy of precision in the vineyard.Aromatic, bright and fresh, we look forward to bring you another fantastic vintage of this wine next June – cheers!” You can schedule a tasting or picnic at their property at 4085 West Dry Creek Road on the winery’s website.

August 22 regular meeting/workshop

The school board held a regular meeting/workshop on August 22. He heard a report on redistricting and discussed school board reports during the 2022-23 school year.

Tacoma Community College

Redistricting Director

Executive Director of Capital Projects and Risk Management John Boatman reported on redistricting options for principal districts and timelines for adoption. Due to 2020 census data and the recent transfer of territory from the Bethel School District, CPSD must update its principal districts to comply with state law (outlined in RCW 28A.343.040 and RCW 29A .76.010).

The report included a presentation by Parker Howell of the law firm Porter Foster Rorick LLP. He discussed legal requirements, criteria for determining districts, and a timeline for adopting updated director districts. The initial schedule includes public comment in September and sets the October 10 board meeting as the date for adopting the final plan.

Chris Melendez of Davis Demographics presented the district’s demographics, current district populations, and three redistricting options for the council to consider.

Charles Wright Academy

School Board Reports

The school board reviewed and provided feedback on the format used for monthly school board reports provided by district schools. The board also reviewed the schedule of board meetings in the 2022-23 school year and discussed increasing the number of school board reports written each year.

The next regular school board meeting/workshop will be on Monday, September 26 at 5:30 p.m.

August 29 special meeting

The school board held a special meeting Aug. 29 to discuss the redistricting of principals due to 2020 census data and the recent transfer of territory from the Bethel School District. At its previous meeting, the district was presented with three options from outside organization Davis Demographics to consider for redistricting.

State law and district policy and procedure require that the redistricting plan result in the population of each internal director district being as equal as possible, among other criteria. Based on updated federal census data, CPSD has a total population of 90,811, which means that each director district would contain approximately 18,162 people if all director districts had an equal population. Currently, Master District 5 has a significantly larger total population than the other four Master Districts (27.1% above the target population).

College Funding Project

At the August 29 meeting, the board approved a draft redistricting plan. At its next meeting, the council will consider the third option, which would reduce the total population gap between the governing districts from 35.2% to 7.8%. The council directed the superintendent to take all necessary steps to satisfy the law by providing full and reasonable notice of the proposed redistricting plan, which includes publishing the plan and arranging a meeting for comment. public. Information on the third option is available on the district’s website.

The school board will vote on the final redistricting plan at its October 10 meeting.

Melody Gardot in a smoky jazz duo; a hot slate at the Drake, and more https://tadasei.com/melody-gardot-in-a-smoky-jazz-duo-a-hot-slate-at-the-drake-and-more/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 15:59:30 +0000 https://tadasei.com/melody-gardot-in-a-smoky-jazz-duo-a-hot-slate-at-the-drake-and-more/

In the music world, it’s now a classic comeback story: how the jazz singer Melody Gardotthen 19, was hit by a car while riding a bicycle in her hometown of Philadelphia in 2003 and suffered serious head and spinal injuries, a fractured pelvis and neurological damage which affected his movements and his memory.

She also ended up with hypersensitivity to light and sound and had to learn to walk again once she finally got up from her hospital bed.

But Gardot, who comes to Northampton Academy of Music on September 11 at 8 p.m., has spent some of his recovery time writing songs, learning to play the guitar lying on his back and leaning in general on the music as a vital part. of therapy. In the nearly two decades since her accident, she has released six albums and won legions of fans – especially in Europe – who are drawn to her smoky jazz/blues voice, piano playing and compositions.

Gardot, who is fluent in French and also knows other languages, has traveled and performed extensively in Europe; she calls herself a “citizen of the world”. As such, she’s absorbed many influences, and on her latest album, “Entre Eux Deux” (Between Us Two), released in May, she distilled some of them down to a spare soundscape of her vocals at alongside piano accompaniment by French-Brazilian keyboardist Philippe Powell — this is the first time she hasn’t played piano on one of her albums.

“If I had to sum up the record in a few words,” Gardot said in an interview earlier this year, “I would say it’s a dance between two people who love and appreciate the same things: deep poetry and solid melodies. …it’s a glimpse into the universe of two artists who really like each other.

The 10 songs on the album, which Gardot sings in English and French, stem from an intense two-week workshop the two friends held in Gardot’s Paris apartment, overlooking the Eiffel Tower, during from which they wrote and shared lyrics, melodies and ideas. . In that sense, it’s very much a duet album, with Powell singing in harmony on a few tracks and the two sharing songwriting credits on a number of tracks.

It’s music for late, quiet evenings and moments of contemplation, with a few covers too, including “Plus Fort que Nous” from the classic French film “Un Homme et Une Femme”. Jazzwise calls the album “good stuff, the best album Gardot has ever made. Try it, you might like it; and if you’re a fan of moody torch songs, you probably will.”

Franco-American jazz singer Laura Angladewho drew comparisons to Anita O’Day, Shirley Horn and Blossom Dearie, opens the show.

Since opening this spring, The Drake in Amherst has earned a reputation for bringing together a diverse and eclectic lineup, and this weekend, for four consecutive nights, the downtown club is hosting a jazz drummer, music traditional Irish, a solo folk-rock band, and two rock bands with unique sounds – in that order.

Fierce jazz drummer Jonathan Barber, voted best up-and-coming drummer of 2018 by Modern Drummer readers, kicked things off on Thursday.

Friday at 7 p.m. Alt – Irish musicians John Doyle, Nuala Kennedy and Eamon O’Leary – come to The Drake to deliver an instrumental interaction that Acoustic Guitar Magazine calls “telepathic and miraculous”. Combining guitar, bouzouki, flute and vocals, the three musicians are all outstanding folk performers in their own right, but together create a sound that “is truly a celebration of friendship and song”, as they say so.

Then on Saturday, at 8 p.m., the Drake welcomes the valley favorite The suitcase race, aka Matt Lorenz, who specializes in guitar and vocals while playing homemade drums with his feet. He is also known for playing cymbals while holding a drumstick in the same hand he uses to strum his guitar. He is a versatile man.

Finally, the Swiss instrumental ensemble Lightningwhich offers the kind of danceable grooves alternatively called “expansive” and “spatial” — SPIN describes the band as “finding their way to instrumental bliss” — will be at the Drake on Sunday at 8 p.m. Carinae open the show.

If you’re looking for more musical variety, you can probably find it at Millpond Live, the free outdoor concert series (donations encouraged) at Easthampton’s Millside Park, which starts Friday and Saturday this year with six bands playing everything from electronic and R&B fusion to Latin American beats to a variety of jazz. (Additional shows are on September 16 and 17.)

Of particular note during the Friday concert, which takes place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Mtali Shaka Banda and its whole. Banda, saxophonist, is originally from Amherst and the son of a Malawian refugee father and an African-American mother. Growing up, he also spent several years in Wisconsin and Georgia, then moved back to Massachusetts in Brockton, followed by a move to Israel when he was 18.

Living in Massachusetts again, Banda has absorbed many influences during his travels – jazz, funk, soul, folk, R&B and hip hop – and his music also contains elements of travelogues, memoirs and history. family. One thing he doesn’t play, he says, is the classic, “I’ve got too much backbeat in me.”

The Sun Rises in Eastern Screens at the 2022 Fall New Jersey Film Festival This Friday


The Sun Rises in the East by Tayo Giwa is a rich and heartfelt film about how the black community of Bedford-Stuyvesant (Brooklyn, New York) created the most incredible paradise for self-expression, education and the supplementary provision called The East. The East’s story begins with the beginning of integration into Bed-Stuy after the passing of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. Despite the ruling, unfair conditions persisted for black youth, and community members recognized an urgent need for more enrichment. Jitu Weusi, Al Vann and other key members of the community proposed to have a center of creativity and education where the needs and resources to excel in all aspects of life would be created. This institution would also celebrate the entire African Diaspora and the different African cultures on the continent. The Sun Rises in the East is a wonderfully rewarding experience that truly magnifies what happens when great care is married to fantastic ideas to create a utopia that has fostered prosperity for an entire generation.

CCCF Grants Lewis Cass Life-Changing Student Experience | New https://tadasei.com/cccf-grants-lewis-cass-life-changing-student-experience-new/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://tadasei.com/cccf-grants-lewis-cass-life-changing-student-experience-new/

Ian Hook had high hopes of a summer musical education at Berklee College of Music’s prestigious Boston Conservatory.

The Cass County Community Foundation had the means to realize these hopes.

It all added up to a life-changing summer for Hook, a senior at Lewis Cass High School.

“It changed my perspective on everything in ways I never would have thought of,” Hook said.

That everything he mentions makes music. Hook wants to compose film scores one day in his future.

Hook attended two high school summer sessions at the Boston Conservatory. The first class was a brass workshop. He continues with a course in musical composition.

During these sessions, he took a crash course in composition with a deadline. He wrote two multi-movement works and a Chicago-style chamber brass piece in three days at the brass workshop. In composition class, he wrote a solo piano piece in 24 hours and a B-flat clarinet and vibraphone duet in less than three days. He also had five days to write a string quartet.

The deadlines were stressful but gave him a sense of urgency, Hook said.

“I had no time to waste,” he said.

Every day was filled with musical experiences. There were warm-ups, guest artist talks, and ensemble sections. In the evenings, students were treated to faculty recitals and participated in jam sessions.

“The faculty was awesome,” Hook said. “It’s very hard to describe how crazy it was to see them in action and to receive help from them.”

Among the guest artists were Kenneth Thompkins, principal trombonist of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and jazz trumpeter Philip Dizack.

Along with all the other experiences, Hook has met other music students from around the world, including China, Venezuela, Chile, Russia, and Puerto Rico.

“Each project had a different studio for the songwriting schedule, Hook said. “There were five students per studio, including myself and a faculty member. I could hear a lot of different music and a lot of different techniques. It was really cool, especially with the variety of cultures. There were students who wrote Latin music and others who wrote more international music. It was very cool.”

Hook’s life-changing summer almost didn’t happen. Programs and expenses would have amounted to over $6,000. He contacted the CCCF to see if they offered funding for high school students.

Deanna Crispen, executive director and CEO of CCCF, said no. But she told Hook she would watch and see what she could do. Hook took her at her word, and her persistence in checking in with Crispen paid off.

Crispen approached the CCCF board about the use of money donated by the estate of Richard and Rose Gates of the Royal Center for educational purposes to support Hook’s businesses. They agreed.

Crispen stopped by Lewis Cass to tell Hook about the opportunity in person.

“This young man is going places,” Crispen said. “He’s an incredible musician, incredible musical talent. We’re just grateful that we were able to find a way to help him.

Through Hook, CCCF strives to make these opportunities accessible to other high school students.

“After talking to Ian, he really helped shed some light on the fact that there are many programs like the one he was involved in that would be great for young people, but there is no funding,” said said Crispen.

Crispen jokingly called Hook a test for a pilot program. She said he was so excited about the experience that he texted her on the first day of the brass workshop ready to tell her what was going on. Hook then made a presentation for Crispen and the CCCF Board of Directors upon his return.

“When you see a youngster who has that passion and that joy and being able to experience something like that at that level, that’s why we’re here,” Crispen said. “One day, when he is a world famous film composer, we can look back and say that we helped this young man get started. It gives us all joy.

“(The CCCF) has been a huge help,” Hook said. “I couldn’t have left without their help. They helped me with my plane ticket. They helped me with my tuition, my accommodation, my food. Almost everything.

Hook is taking a music composition course this year at Lewis Cass, and he’s excited to share what he’s learned with his classmates.

He will also participate in many musical activities: brass band, jazz band, pep band, winter percussion, solo ensemble for choir and brass band, advanced choir.

It’s all part of a journey that will take Hook to new heights and maybe even lead him to accept an Oscar for best film score one day.

“If you want something, pursue it,” he said. ” Do not hold yourself back. Go for it because you never know what will happen.
