An Evening with Molly Ringwald
March 1-2 @ 8pm; March 3-5 @ 8:30 & 11pm

with Allen Mezquida (alto sax) Mitchell Long (guitar) Peter Smith (piano) Trevor Ware (bass) Tony Jefferson (drums)

Molly Ringwald acts, writes books, and sings jazz. Since the release of her Concord Records debut jazz album, “Except Sometimes,” in April 2013, Ringwald and her band have performed over 200 concerts around the world. The crowd-pleasing concert program, “An Evening with Molly Ringwald,” with her quartet, prompted The New York Times to note, “the spin she brings to the American Songbook is thoroughly contemporary… the same brashness and zaniness that Madonna breathed into pop.” An actress of stage and screen, Ringwald earned a Golden Globe nomination at age thirteen, and went on to star in numerous films, including the iconic John Hughes hits, “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club,” and “Pretty in Pink.” On stage, Ringwald starred in Broadway productions of the Pulitzer Prize winning “How I Learned to Drive,” the revival of “Cabaret,” the Tony-nominated “Enchanted April,” and the West End production of “When Harry Met Sally.”

Too Marvelous For Words in Concert - 7:00
220 West Fourth Street
Williamsport, PA 17701
(570) 326-2424 [map]
Price: See website for details

Too Marvelous for Words Trio

Too Marvelous For Words” is a fun and swingin’ journey into the early days of Nat King Cole. Before “The Christmas Song” and “Mona Lisa” that we know from the crooner standing in front of the orchestra, Nat was recording and playing (from the piano bench!) some of the tastiest and most influential music of the day, leaving an impact not only on an array of singers but on pianists such as Oscar Peterson and Ahmad Jamal. Drawing on his experience as both an actor and a singer/pianist, Peter Smith effortlessly weaves in stories from this period in Nat King Cole’s life as they relate to the song selections, creating an evening that is fun, informative and leaves the audience not only tapping their feet, but pondering some fascinating tidbits from Nat’s life.

Beyond Baroque
Noel Rosa, A Celebration! - 6:30pm 8:00pm
681 Venice Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90291 [map]
Price: $25.00 limited seating

Brazilian Heart Music proudly presents Noel Rosa, a Celebration, the 4th annual show created and produced by Kátia Moraes to pay homage to Brazilian artists of renown. This year's celebration brings to Los Angeles the music of Noel Rosa. The show condenses Noel’s repertoire of more than 250 songs with some of the most important hits recorded by the artist and covered by a multitude of talented successors like Tom Jobim, Ivan Lins, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, among many others.

In “Noel Rosa, a Celebration", actor/singer Katia Moraes, actor/poet Peter Lownds, accompanied by guitarist Mitchell Long and Flavio Ribeiro on percussion, recreate Noel's bittersweet life through his music, sung in Portuguese by Katia and translated into English by Peter. The songs illuminate scenes from Noel's turbulent and humorous life-- a Three Penny Opera of Rio in the Radio Age with hustlers, poets and hoodlums all vividly brought to life by the trio of musicians, Peter and dancer Ana Carla Laidley playing a 1930's Rio de Janeiro bohemian malandro.

Tickets online: www.cali4fun.net
NOTE: Seating first come, first served.
Box Office opens on the day of the event at 5pm for the first show, and at 7pm for the 8pm show.

The hosts of Casa Arjona Gloria and Javier are no exception to the rule. Not only are they wonderful people but also very talented musicians and artists with great taste, ideas and appreciation of the arts.

Mitchell and Dilma
Long Beach Jazz Examiner review;
It sounds like the name of an exclusive dive somewhere downtown, but Casa Arjona basically means what it means. It's literally someone's house. A typical one-story middle-class Californian house with a driveway, a front yard, and about four feet of space to separate it from the neighbors. And it's called "Casa Arjona" because the people who live in it are the Arjonas... The un-remarkableness makes it all the more unforgettable. The Arjona's are a married couple who are carrying on the precious fading tradition of performing in your own backyard. It puts jazz or, more specifically, Latin jazz, back into its intimate settings. Miles Davis and Gerry Mulligan rehearsed in each other's rundown apartments and emerged with what came to be known as cool jazz.... Well, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but the point remains... A lawn can only hold so many people, so RSVPing is advised. There is no cover charge; however, it is best not to go empty-handed. Bring an $18 donation, a bottle of wine, and a friend.

it is a timeless dream and it is a history lesson in our own words.

Santa Monica, CA 90401
310-451-2221 [map]

Considered one of the great composers of his generation, MOACYR LUZ, carioca (native of Rio de Janeiro), has nine solo albums to date, the credits of which read like a “who’s who” of the samba legacy of Rio. His most recent release Batucando (Biscoito Fino 2009) includes the participation of Alcione, Beth Carvalho, Ivan Lins, Mart’nália, Martinho da Vila, Zeca Pagodinho, Luiz Melodia, Tantinho da Mangueira, and Wilson das Neves.

His songwriting, stage, and recording partners have also included the likes of Nei Lopes, Wilson Moreira, Aldir Blanc, Paulo César Pinheiro, Jards Macalé, Guinga, Zé Renato, João Nogueira, Raphael Rabello, Elza Soares, Guilherme de Brito, Casquinha da Portela, and Luiz Carlos da Vila. He has had over one hundred of his compositions recorded by luminaries of Brazilian Popular Music such as Maria Bethânia, Nana Caymmi, Beth Carvalho, Leny Andrade, Gilberto Gil, and Leila Pinheiro. His composition “Vida da Minha Vida” (in partnership with Sereno of the pioneer Grupo Fundo de Quintal) is the title track of platinum artist Zeca Pagodinho’s latest album.

Moacyr’s performances abroad include shows in Angola, Cuba, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, and a special performance for former Brazilian President Lula and the Dutch Queen Beatrix in Haia, Holland. At home in Rio on any given Monday afternoon, Moacyr draws over 1,000 people to his weekly event Samba do Trabalhador (“working man’s samba”), the phenomenal success of which even spawned a live CD and DVD.

Making his first appearance in the U.S., Moacyr comes to California at the behest of Brazilian American musician Beto González, whom he met during Beto’s extended research stay in Rio in 2007-08. With shows exclusively in Los Angeles, Moacyr Luz will be backed by L.A.'s own Samba Society.

**

SAMBA SOCIETY is a collective of musicians from the Brazilian community of Southern California. Under the artistic direction of Beto González, Samba Society is primarily dedicated to the partido alto and samba de terreiro popularized by Rio’s “Old Guard” of urban samba. The group’s repertoire features renditions of vintage sambas reminiscent of classic recordings from the 1970s.

WORLD FESTIVAL OF SACRED MUSIC - Los Angeles 2011

Partido Alto Astral: An Evening of Spiritual Sambas

Beto González, artistic director

The sensual melodies and syncopated rhythms of samba are recognized around the world as a symbol of Brazil. What most people may not know is that this emotive musical tradition is deeply rooted in spiritual beliefs that reach back to Africa. In this special performance for the World Festival of Sacred Music, Artistic Director Beto González and Samba Society explore the interplay between the rural and urban; music and dance; and sacred and secular practices that lie at the heart of Brazilian culture. With Partido Alto Astral, the secular rhythms of samba de roda, batuque, and partido alto are presented with depth and spiritual resolve.

Twelve musicians and three dancers strong, Samba Society will bring its own brand of vintage "roots" samba reminiscent of classic recordings from the 1970s.

Performers include:
Beto González / director / vocals / percussion
Simon Carroll / percussion / drums
Bobby Easton / percussion
Mitchell Long / cavaco / guitar/ vocals
Keith Lungwitz / percussion
Dana Maman / percussion / vocals

Sambaguru - 7 to 9 PM
6333 W. Third St.
Los Angeles, CA 90036 [map]
Price: Free

Sambaguru will blast off with a Brazilian bang like always @ The Farmer's Market Music Series

Farmer's Market @ 3rd & Fairfax

Any performance by Kátia Moraes and Sambaguru is a gripping tour through the seemingly infinite rhythms and far reaching passions of Brazilian music. Moraes has been one of the Southland’s most dynamic singer/dancers since the ’90s. A frequent star of Carnaval celebrations, her performances sizzle with rhythmic high voltage and soaring melodies. But the work she does with the six piece ensemble Sambaguru takes in a far broader perspective.

The unique Brazilian singer and lyricist Kátia Moraes began her career in Rio de Janeiro in the 80’s with her energetic band “O Espirito da Coisa.” Moraes performs a mix of samba, marchinhas (traditional carnival sambas), pagode, and frevo and her energetic presence is beautifully complimented by the explosive power of percussion as well as outstanding guitar and bass. “Moraes’ singing, as always, was a virtual definition of the passion that is an implicit part of Brazilian music.” —Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times.
