Love You Madly - A Portrait of Duke Ellington
DESCRIPTION
Archival recordings, magazine articles, concert posters, original photographs, and a significant discography related to jazz pioneer and prolific master composer Duke Ellingtons life and career. Gallery Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12Noon-5pm. An opening concert on Saturday, March 7 from 3:00-6:00p.m. will feature music performed live by Marcus Miller Freedom Jazz Movement, paying tribute to Duke with a special focus on his work with Max Roach and Charles Mingus on the 1963 release, Money Jungle.

The materials exhibited will chronicle Duke Ellingtons rise to fame through swing in the Cotton Club and big band era as an inventive arranger and charismatic band leader, as well as his grassroots love for blues and experimental jazz. His open philosophies towards jazz as American Music beyond category, rooted in African tradition, influenced younger generations of genre expanders including John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, and Max Roach as well as ongoing relationships with orchestra members saxophonists Otto Hardwick and Johnny Hodges, as well as alliances with contemporaries such as Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Strayhorn. Items presented are entirely from the collection of Alden Kimbrough, and also include items collected by his father Jack Kimbrough, who built a personal relationship with Duke, inviting him to perform in Southern California, including some of his first performances in San Diego.

The life and work of Duke Ellington is this years focus for The William Grant Still Arts Centers Annual African-American Composers Series. Now in its seventh year, the exhibition series celebrates the life and work of African-American composers each spring. Combining community archives with original artwork and music education, past exhibitions in the series have included I Got My Pride: The Blues Tales of Leadbelly (2014), Arkestry of the Cosmos: The Universe Language of Sun Ra (2013), Deeds Not Words: The Life and Work of Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln (2012), A New Day: Nina Simone (2011) and The High Priest of Bop: The Jazz Odyssey of Thelonious Monk (2010).

The music of Duke Ellington is also being presented in conjunction with DCAs African-American Heritage Music Education Program.

The Murder Ballad (1938)
DESCRIPTION
With a volatile mix of desire, jealousy and emancipatory yearning, Poor Dog Group's latest movement-based work?first staged at REDCAT?s New Original Works Festival?gives forceful physical life to Jelly Roll Morton's legendary 1938 recording. Originally performed in the brothels of New Orleans? steamy Storyville district, Morton's song revels in the nastiness of its heroine?s voice, embodied here by Jessica Emmanuel, whose feral physical energy lays claim to the violent impulses of a woman betrayed. Directed by Jesse Bonnell, The Murder Ballad (1938) delves into the myth of female madness and racialized representations of sexuality.

Azar Lawrence Sextet - Special Guest, Oscar Brashear, George Bohanon & Roy McCurdy
DESCRIPTION
A Night With Jazz Titans

Azar Lawrence Sextet - Azar Lawrence, tenor & soprano saxes; Guests Oscar Brashear, trumpet; George Bohanon, trombone; Roy McCurdy, drums; feat. Theo Saunders, piano & Jeff Littleton, bass

Veteran trombone master, Motown's George Bohanon, prolific trumpeter Oscar Brashear and heavyweight drummer Roy McCurdy, join Azar Lawrence for a night of Straight Ahead Progressive Jazz.

A tenor saxophonist squarely in the post-Coltrane continuum, still best recognized for his prolific output in the 1970s, Azar Lawrence blowing stronger than ever and is still on the circuit. Since his Jazz career began circa 1970's; at age nineteen, Sax legend Azar Lawrence has had a free-thinking approach to music. One of the most powerful and distinctive of all post-Coltrane tenorists, Lawrence born 1952 in Los Angeles by age of 21 had worked with Ike & Tina Turner, War, and Charles Wright's Watts 103rd Street Band ("Express Yourself").

?To hear Mr. Lawrence upshift through his improvisations, honoring a song?s rhythm and harmony and then breaking free of it, is one of jazz?s current thrills, and he understands this music as well as anyone.? Ben Ratliff, New York Times, December 6, 2014

California?s Premiere Old West Convention Mounts Up

Los Angeles, CA.,--- Start marking your calendars Western and Magnificent Seven fans! That?s right the
3rd annual M7 Con is riding into Los Angeles, California October 23 and 24, 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. All staff members have mounted their horses and headed out on their journey to plan the best M7 Con fans will experience. While heading into our third year, we are keeping the event a two day Con in order to expand out to other Western panelists and possible actors. We want our audience, new members and veteran members, to get their money?s worth and from the looks of the initial plans that will definitely be the case. If we do get more actors and/or panelists the Con may be extended.
M7 Con, in the past two years, has brought to its fans amazing panelists that have shared their in-depth knowledge of things from the Old West and the television series. M7 Con has also brought lifetime chances to fans to meet actors from the M7 series; such as Rick Worthy, Anthony Starke, Dale Midkiff, Andrew Kavovit and guest star Daren Flam. During our inaugural year we had series executive producer and writer, Pen Densham on site as well. Each year, we as a staff, strive to bring the audience bigger and better experiences.
While our actors and panelists line-up has just begun initial planning, M7 Con has extended an open invitation to new and past actors and panelists. We will be expanding into different areas of the Western genre and the history surrounding the Old West this year. We want to give the audience an experience of a lifetime and for them to want to return year after year. M7 Con was started by fans for fans and we hold that to a very high regard.
We are still in the early planning stages but along with the actors? main panel, this year will also feature a variety of Old West expert guest panelists, autograph and photo ops, various vendors and special events.
We hope to have a full house on October 23 & 24, 2015 and that each guest has a magnificent time.
