So What! The Artistry of Miles Davis
DESCRIPTION
This exhibit of archival recordings, magazine articles, concert posters, original photographs, and a significant discography covers the life, work, and innovation of jazz master Miles Davis across eras from bebop and the birth of cool to electric experimentation and beyond. A creative innovator, Miles Davis is an improviser and composer, a painter and master practitioner of the trumpet?a true artist whose work both mutated and evolved with the times to influence multiple genres, from jazz to funk to hip-hop to rock and roll. The materials exhibited are primarily drawn from the significant Alden Kimbrough Collection which has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally. These include a discography of over 107 LPs, as well as 15 78s and 8 33s. There are also selected items from the collection of Billie Green as well as artwork by Ramsess, Norm Maxwell, and ShirtKingFade. Portrait murals by AISE and Patrick H. Johnson individually, and walls designed by the show?s curator, Ami Motevalli, create an immersive environment for the archival display. The life and work of Miles Davis is the focus for The William Grant Still Arts Center?s 8th Annual African-American Composers Series.

Straight from his brilliant turn as Elder Cunningham in "The Book Of Mormon", Jared Gertner stars as 1930s lyricist Al Dubin in a show that delivers a veritable banquet of marvelous, toe-tapping tunes. Dubin was one of the premier songwriters of Hollywood's Golden Age. Possessed of enormous talent and equally outsized vices, he still managed to create such classics as Lullaby of Broadway, 42nd Street, We're In The Money and Tiptoe Through the Tulips.

Directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran Kay Cole, and written by the award-winning screenwriters of "Peggy Sue Got Married", the show features portrayals of such celebrated personalities as Al Jolson, Cab Calloway, Ruby Keeler, Carmen Miranda, and Busby Berkeley. The only question is which of the twenty-one songs you'll wind up humming on the way out.

Limited engagement, not to be missed!

Jazz at The Grand with Poncho Sanchez
DESCRIPTION
Jazz At The Grand
Part of a summer concert series benefiting the
Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson

Friday June 17, 2016
Doors Open at 7:00 PM
Event: 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Location: The Palm Courtyard at The Grand Long Beach (Outdoor Event)

Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band
If music were about pictures, percussionist Poncho Sanchez?s music would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show, on any given record, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling. Sanchez grew up in a suburb of L.A., where he was raised on an unusual cross section of sounds that included straightahead jazz, Latin jazz and American soul. By his teen years, his musical consciousness had been solidified by the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Cal Tjader, Mongo Santamaria, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. Whatever the genre, the mesmerizing array of sounds and colors from Poncho Sanchez?s youth have telegraphed across the decades and continue to inform his creative sensibilities to this day. His over 20 year relationship with Concord Records has yielded two dozen recordings, a Grammy Award and several Grammy nominations
