Brazilian and Flamenco Jazz at the Blue Whale
DESCRIPTION
The Blue Whale presents a double set of world-class Jazz and Flamenco Jazz, featuring the award-winning pianist Danny Green with bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm with special guest saxophonist from NYC, Arun Luthra. They share the bill with flutist Rebecca Kleinmann?s stunning new collaboration with world- renowned flamenco guitarist Jason McGuire?s Trio with percussionist Marlon Aldana and bassist Paul Martin Sounder.

The Danny Green Trio is touring the California coast to promote their latest album After the Calm. Hailed as ?one of the important up-and-comers on the scene today? by All About Jazz, Green is one of the most prolific and talented jazz pianists in Southern California, and has received Best Jazz Album at the San Diego Music Awards and awarded a music residency at the San Diego Museum of Art.

Arun Luthra has been one of the premiere saxophonists and composers on New York?s jazz scene for well over a decade. He is one of the small group of American jazz musicians of Indian heritage who have continued to explore to possibilities of fusing the modern post-bop sound with elements of Indian classical music, as well drawing from a wide variety of modern and classic musical influences to create a vibrant new sound and style.

Internationally acclaimed flutist and singer Rebecca Kleinmann has steeped her natural musicality in the waters of Brazilian Music, Jazz and Flamenco, and honors these traditions while emerging with her own voice. On this California tour she combines forces with the unparalleled virtuosic talent of flamenco guitarist Jason McGuire along with the grooving subtleties of drummer and percussionist Marlon Aldana and bassist Paul Martin Sounder. The Jason McGuire Trio joined by versatile Kleinmann will feature original music by McGuire and Kleinmann along with music of composers such as Hermeto Pascoal. The agility, depth, playfulness and precision of the group are a captivating joy to witness.

California?s Premiere Old West Convention Mounts Up
M7 Con begins planning for the 3rd annual convention set for October 2015 in Los Angeles, CA

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.
