Be prepared to swing to the incredible sax and clarinet playing of Jowee Omicil at the release of his latest CD, “Naked,” at Arts Garage in Delray Beach. Start time is 8 PM. Accompanying Jowee will be Jeff Deen, tabla, halo; Michael Piolet, drums; Ti West, tambour; Carlos Alabaci, bass; and Harold St-Louis- keys/piano

More than a mere player, Jowee is a unique and prolific composer, producer, arranger, vocalist, band leader, and music instructor who has devoted much of his time to passing down his broad knowledge of musicology to students of all ages. On May 18, 2010, Jowee had the honor of being invited to President Barack Obama’s White House to play his music for its inaugural observation of Haitian Flag Day before 150 VIP guests. With his latest release, “Naked”, Jowee offers a work that is steeped in purpose yet listener-friendly and accessible to all. In essence, that is the only way he knows to approach the making of his music.

Says Jowee: “NAKED was recorded at the Riviera area stage theater with the bare minimum. The nakedness invites the listener to participate. I see it as a jazz orgy, where everybody join in. Going forward, setting up your own standards it’s a call and response to my musical ancestors Fela Kuti, Coltrane, Dibango, Toussaint Louverture, Jean Baptiste DuSable, Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman, Pharoah Sanders, Kenny Garrett, Branford Marsalis, Kirk Franklin, Kathleen Battle, Luciano Pavarotti …what does that do to the listeners? It invites them to add their grain of salt and join the musical Fest. While listening to NAKED the people will want to jam with the record. This is the purpose of being NAKED musically.”

It’s the continuation of his previous album, “Roots & Grooves,” which was naked too. Jowee is opening a dialogue with music lovers by releasing this Album. “I’m very satisfied with the outcome of this project. May the world face my nakedness,” he says. There is a Gospel medley, performed as a duet with Harold St-Louis, dedicated to his Dad which brings Jowee to his church roots. Ti West on congas/tambour is a master of roots folklore rhythms in Haiti. He’s featured vocally and instrumentally. The eclectic sound of the halo, hapi and the tabla are all played by Jeffrey Deen, who’s an Indian-rooted musician whose performances provide joy to listeners. James Quinlan on bass, Michael Piolet on drums, and Carlos Alabaci round out the personnel, all of whom were under 20 at the time. Jowee loves to promote the younger generation who will be and who are becoming the leaders of today’s scene.

Jowee’s music is steeped in the spirituality set forth by his minister father. “I had the honor of producing music on the very last recording of Haiti’s great Pepe Bayard,” Jowee reflects. “He was dying while we were making that record, but immersing himself in music helped him live a whole lot longer. That’s the power of music… and that’s what I want to bring back. I also want people to DANCE to jazz again. Jazz was once popular music and I want the world to groove once again.”

During the performance, artist Lou-Lou Davila-Hagopian will “paint to music,” with the finished product on display at the conclusion of the performance.

“This young man is a very talented and gifted musician, always in the lab working on his songs and practicing his instrument. He is a person we will be hearing in the future. Keep your ears and eyes open.”
–Kenny Garrett, Musician

Coming to a stage near you! ARTfusion, Delray Inc. is proud to announce the launching of its innovative and interactive program, Theatrical Fusion. Youa re invited to this special kickoff event and reception. Join us for complimentary Wine & Hors d’oeuvres and get to know ARTFusion!

Theatrical Fusion implements improvisational theater techniques to engage audiences and maintain interaction. The program uses the arts as a vehicle for community building, education and social change. Its goal is to provide “edutainment” and help members of the community make choices that will positively impact their lives. Funding for this nonprofit program was made possible through the Love One Another Foundation represented by Cousin’s Law of West Palm Beach.

Twelve performances are now being scheduled ranging from Summer 2013 to Spring 2014, in which participating organizations will have the opportunity to promote their causes. “We bring our actors and plays for free or for a small donation to host sites” Kamysha Martin, Executive Director of ARTfusion Delray, said. “The stage serves a platform for interaction. Each play allows the audience members to be a part of the host’s organization message and/or chime in on the topic”. Organizations are being urged to call and reserve a date as soon as possible for Theatrical Fusion booking. “We are very pleased with the reception of this program, but yes, there are still a handful of more opportunities left on the schedule”, says Ms. Martin.

In partnership with the Global Business Development Center, the program is purposely designed to create jobs by hiring local actors, create social change by discussing serious topics, and assist community partners through community outreach. “We are doing a second round actors call, requesting submission and in person auditions are being scheduled,” Martin said. The program also brings in subject matter experts to facilitate discussion on topics including bullying, cyber stalking, domestic violence, teen dating violence, financial education, substance abuse, teen pregnancy prevention, healthy choices, HIV/AIDS, parenting and topics specific to the aging community and their families.

ARTfusion Delray’s mission is to utilize the ARTS for social change.

Marlow Rosado y La Riqueña
MarlowFriday night Sept 28, Show starts 9:30 pm.
Breathe Restaurant & Lounge
401 West Atlantic Ave
Delray Beach, FL

With over twenty years’ experience in the music industry, Grammy-nominated pianist-composer-producer Marlow Rosado has developed a powerful portfolio working with many of the top artists in the Latin recording world. Singing with world-renowned producer Desmond Child has led him to work with major artists such as Alejandra Guzman and Ricky Martin (on Más). With eleven Grammy nominations to his credit, Rosado’s influence in the Tropical genre can be felt on records ranging from Elvis Crespo to Gran Combo.
 
His 2009 debut album, Salsalsa, featuring Andy Montañez, lived at the #1 spot on Puerto Rico’s hottest Salsa station, Zeta 93, for over eight weeks.  His second and latest CD, Retro, (2012) takes some of the strongest songs from the 1970’s, maintaining the essentials of the originals, but metamorphosing them in Marlow’s 21st-century conception until they become entirely his own. The album features guest appearances by Tito Puente, Jr., Ismael Miranda, Bobby Cruz, Papo Lucca, Kevin Ceballo, Marlon Fernandez, Luigi Texidor, Quique Dominich, Salvador Cuevas, and Tony Vega. It has received rave reviews and has made the Top Ten list nationally in its category.

Total Wine and More–Not Just a Liquor Store

Pretty Poetic Title. Am I right?

Everyone in South Florida knows that Total Wine & More is a great place to shop for Beer, Spirits and Wine. I’d have preferred they called it Total Beer and More, but that’s just me. The variety of products, great prices, regular tastings and knowledgeable, friendly staff are just the beginning, too.

Total Wine offers regular educational opportunities for their customers as well. You know, the fun kind of education. Not geometry and grammar, though those are two of my interests. But I’ll save that for another time. Yes, Total Wine offers beer classes, wine tastings with the actual wine makers, whiskey classes with specialists in the business and everything in between. Got a Tequila fetish? This is your store!

For a nominal fee, usually between $15 and $25, consumers can attend one of these events. They are conveniently scheduled, regular events, too, and often they are happening at multiple locations simultaneously so you have your choice. I’ve personally been to a few of their classes. First, Whiskeys Around the World presented by a Senior Master of Whiskey and more recently one called Bourbon Essentials, in addition to a few beer events which I just assumed you knew. I learned a lot. They were very interesting, fun, nice to meet other people, enjoyable experiences. We were able to sample a variety of products, selected for quality and value, and even get some coupons to use afterward.

My wife and a friend just signed up for a Wine Class called Malbec and Other Sexy Wines of South America. And I heard the store manager just yesterday talking about Single Malt Scotch and Tequila classes coming up soon. With 9 local South Florida stores, you will surely have no problem finding something that interests you too. Pick a store and check out their calendar.

I recently asked Greg Tuttle, Total Wine’s Product Education Manager, based out of their Corporate office in Potomac, MD, a few questions. If you have your own questions, Greg is on Twitter, and he or his staff will be happy to get you some answers about their educational series. Plus he’s pretty cool. You might even bump into him one day. For real, I did. And don’t think I’m being a dick with my questions. I just wanted to play Devil’s Advocate and get the real scoop.

Total Wine's Greg Tuttle and Rob Hill

 

Me: Why go to the trouble of organizing educational classes for your customers? It seems like a lot of work for not a lot of money. Are you just trying to get a few more customers into your store?

Greg: We believe that knowledgeable customers are the best customers. At Total Wine & More, with our wide selection of wines, beers, and spirits, we have an opportunity to engage with customers in educational environments where we can share some of the breadth of our product portfolio. Customers can taste and learn in a relaxed atmosphere, and expose their palates to products and flavors they may never have otherwise tried.

Me: How do you make sure your presenters are ready for an enthusiastic and well-versed audience? What type of training do you make sure your employees or guest presenters have beforehand? How do you ensure they are qualified?

Greg: Indeed our audiences are enthusiastic, but their level of knowledge spans the spectrum from beginner to expert. Thus, we tailor the classes down the middle, so there is something for everybody including tasting a new product they’ve never tasted before, and/or learning something new about wine, beer or spirits that they did not previously know. Our area vice presidents and district managers select the class presenters for each store based on the presenters’ exhibiting core subject matter knowledge and presentation skills.

This is where I tried to zing him, LOL: How do you select the products that will be tasted? Do you just pick a handful of beers that are average and not selling well?

Greg: For beer classes, we first determine a set of class themes for the year, aiming to cover a wide spectrum of customers interests and previous beer knowledge, and then within each theme certain beer styles are selected to match that theme. Beer selections are challenging because availability of beer differs from one state to the next and from one market to another within the state. Typically, class presenters are given a list of beers for each beer style covered from which they can chose what to feature in their class based on availability in their store. They are also allowed to feature locally produced beers that may not be on the list.

Me: Is there anything else about Total Wine’s educational series that you think is very important or interesting?

Greg: Our product education series is constantly expanding and evolving. New classes are introduced each year, while prior favorites are updated and included in the roster. A person who attends each class offered, be it wine, beer, or spirits, will in a year’s time be exposed to an incredibly wide sampling of the varietals and styles available to him/her.

Me (trying for the Krabby Patty Formula): Are there any secret surprises we can look forward to in S. Florida in the coming months?

Greg: No “secrets” up our sleeves right now, but I suggest your readers follow our Twitter accounts (@TWMBeer and @Totalwine) and on Facebook for updates.
