    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Renee Rosnes!

    in Music

    You may have just viewed a brief description of Renee Rosnes within the parameters of this page.  Trust and believe, you cannot be BRIEF when describing her talent!  She has been noted as both pianist and composer for a long time - and we bless the day that she moved to New York from Vancouver in order to facilitate her reputation :)  

    Renee is also an arranger - please make note.  And she is The "Go-To" goddess on keys for the filet mignon of artists within Jazz circles.  Joe Henderson, Buster Williams, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Hutcherson.  They'll TELL you.  James Moody asked her to join his elite circle of musical friends in 1989.  Renee was with his band until his passing in 2010.

    As well as her own endeavors, Renee has taken part in grand events that would exhaust mere mortals.  She has been music director for prestigious affairs (one in particular comes to mind to honor her late, beloved boss, James Moody).  She has produced at Lincoln Center, has been involved with the SF Jazz Collective, has interviewed for the "Jazz Times", and has hosted her own radio show for Canada's CBC.  

    Please let her website do the talking, though.  One perusal at her "performances" page and you'll see the kinds of company that she keeps.  With Jimmy Greene, with Cecile McLoren Salvant, Anat Cohen, Ingrid Jensen, Terri Lyne Carrington, and a mainstay in her life: Ron Carter.  One of the most wonderful decisions that Renee has made in her career is to consciously seek out those with whom she has a connection - rare legends have asserted that they have a connection with RENEE.  It's no surprise that this amazingly intuitive artist has won multiple Juno Awards.  With a birthday coming in March - and with all of these fabulous CD release shows, there is MUCH to celebrate!  Join us on 2/9 - and we'll do JUST that!

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    "Let's Go To Church / Gospel Choirs" - GOSPEL TRAIN on KLJN 107.7 - w/LadyJaz

    in Music

    The roots of the “hard gospel” style Mahalia Jackson perfected can be traced to the Pentecostal / Holiness movement at the turn of the century, when the “shout songs” became synonymous with the holy ghost possessing a soul. Churchgoers spoke in tongues, rolled in the aisles, waved their arms wildly, shouted “Hallelujah” and clapped their hands in sanctified percussion as the pianist pounded away on an untuned upright. As the preachers wailed and raged, the music matched the mood. 

    But an increasing number of people- both black and white – were becoming interested in the Pentecostal doctrine and the new worship services that urged emotional release. The vortex of this impassioned twist on faith was at the pilgrimage of Pentecostal leaders to the Apostolic Faith Gospel Mission in Los Angeles in 1906. Being “saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost” by speaking in tongues was the theme at the event now commonly referred to as the Azusa Street Revival. Musical instruments, once considered the tools of the devil, were used to punctuate the testimony and wild foot-stomping dances called “shouting” broke out at will. A one-eyed black man named William Seymour preached the message of Pentecost in Acts 2:4 of the New Testament, which tells the story of the Holy Ghost descending on a gathering of Christ’s disciples in the form of tongues of fire. At Azusa Street, those overcome by the spirit talked in a Hebraic-sounding language (called “gloss-ola-lia”) which was translated by the preacher.

    A virtual United Nations of women, the members of Cocomama hail from five countries on four continents. Playing their own kind of World Latin music, powerfully virtuosic yet elegantly musical, Cocomama “brings it” creating a sound that is all at once fierce and beautiful!

    Their debut album Quiero, which was included in the 2016 Grammy pre-nominations for Best Tropical Latin album, celebrates the coming together of a wide range of musical experiences in three different languages. As evidenced by their diverse repertoire, the group’s influences are limitless: Afro-Cuban, Classical, Jazz, Afro-Caribbean, Latin American, Soul, R&B and beyond. As well as showcasing the band members' songwriting and musical strengths, the music on Quiero strives to uplift and encourage as evidenced by the lyrics of the title track whose message is: “Follow your heart; find your passion, open your mind for destiny is in your hands”. “This album is special,” says Musical Director/Pianist Nicki Denner, “because it could only have been made by these particular musicians. Each member has their own artistic vision and talent which allows us to have a completely original sound.”http://www.cocomamamusic.com/
