But his gregarious nature has never interfered with the fact that he has been one of the greatest trumpeters and musicians of the last 60 years, respected in the worlds of classical music, jazz, big band and in the end, has transcended his celebrity and rejoiced in his remarkable ability to simply play his trumpet!

Pinecrest Gardens is the home of a wonderful display of flowers, trees, rock formations and gardens.  In the Garden, there is a large Banyan Tree that is the heart of the Park.  Having grown up in South Miami, Parrot Jungle was one of my favorite parks and remember being able to play among the roots of then a young Banyan.  It is an honor to be able to reflect the beauty of this park through my paintings.

Banyans are considered sacred and it is amazing how these ancient trees are figured so prominently in many cultures. They have used these massive trees as homes and small communities. Even the leaves are considered the resting place of Krishna.  

Banyans have a wonderful way of catching the light and there is so much movement of the roots.  They are all so connected it is reminiscent the way life is so connected and intertwined.

All the paintings in this exhibit are specific to Pinecrest Gardens highlighting the Banyan Tree.  Also included are some solution holes, (one 30,000 years old) exotic and tropical plants, flowers and some animals.  

Please come to see the park through my eyes in these paintings.

Famed Drummer Brings Jazz from New York March 14

Two-time Grammy winner Will Calhoun brings his jazz project to the South Motors Jazz Series at Pinecrest Gardens March 14 at 8 PM. Will is promoting his critically acclaimed CD “Life In This World” (Motéma Music). “Life…” features such notables as Ron Carter, Donald Harrison, Wallace Roney, and John Benitez, supplementing the trio of Will, Marc Cary, and Charnett Moffett. “Life In This World is a spiritual title,” Calhoun says, “which to me just means the sonic world of my experiences. It’s Will Calhoun in the sense of what influences me and what inspires me, but aimed more towards a jazz audience.” Says Carol Banks Weber of examiner.com, “Will Calhoun’s latest breakthrough jazz album, “Life In This World,” has it all. It deserves more than five stars. It deserves a Grammy.”

He is currently working on a recording, to be released in the Fall of 2015, celebrating the music of Elvin Jones. The album will feature Sonny Fortune and other alumni of The Jazz Machine. In addition, he is a featured artist in Sibylle Szaggars Redford’s paean to the living Earth, “The Way of the Rain,” performed at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Also in the works is an exciting project from West Africa. Will is a new breed of ethnomusicologist, combining his ancestral research with many years of commercial success in jazz, rock, urban, alternative, ambient, and other musical forms of the world into a beautiful swirling expression of life.

Will Calhoun has composed, produced, and toured with Mick Jagger, Mos Def, Oumou Sangaré, Marcus Miller, and Wayne Shorter (on the Grammy-winning CD, High Life), Pharoah Sanders, The Rolling Stones, Lauryn Hill, Herb Alpert, Public Enemy, Paul Simon, Stanley Jordan, Jaron Lanier, and many more. He is an alumnus of the Sundance Composer Lab Program. He has recently broadened his artistic expression to film scores, photography, and a collection of artwork crafted from rhythm titled “AZA”. You can visit his on line gallery at: www.willcalhounart.com. He spends most of his limited down town time in West and North Africa researching ancient rhythms and musical styles.

Accompanying Will at Pinecrest will be Orrin Evans on piano, Luques Curtis on bass, and Marcus Strickland on sax. This is a first-class quartet specially flown in from New York for this show.

Pinecrest Gardens are located at 11000 SW 57th Ave (Red Road) in Pinecrest. Tickets are $25 and $30, ($15 students; promo code “cool”) available at pinecrestgardens.org.

Come celebrate Carnaval in Rio at Pinecrest Gardens, with Batuke Samba Funk, Miami’s finest Brazilian band, presented by KCC Productions. The roots of Carnaval trace back to the ancient Romans and Greeks who celebrated the rites of spring. Across Europe, including France, Spain and Portugal, people annually gave thanks by throwing parties, wearing masks and dancing in the streets. Such traditions were carried over to the New World. Carnival has come a long way since it was brought to Rio, having become one of the biggest events in the World. Tonight it comes to Pinecrest!

If you like Funk, Afro Beat, and Brazilian music, this is the right band for you. Batuke is a mix of Brazilian rhythms like Samba and Afro-Brazilian, with the raw 70’s Funk, creating a groovy atmosphere wherever the seven-piece band plays. Batuke Samba Funk was created by Brazilian bass player, composer, and producer Diogo Brown in 2009. Diogo studied at the Conservatory of Rio de Janeiro, and is one of the most accomplished and recognized Brazilian musicians in South Florida. He has played alongside artists such as Ricky Martin, Chris Delano, Nouvele Vague, Caludia Leitte, Beatriz Luengo, Don Omar, and Youtel (Orixas), among others. The core of the band consists of five Brazilian musicians and adds two American musicians on the horns. You can expect a hand-clapping, foot-stomping good time worthy of the celebration. The program will also feature a samba dancer in full Carnaval costume to brighten the proceedings still further!

The show is part of the South Motors Jazz Series, and will be in Pinecrest’s Banyan Bowl, 11000 SW 57th Ave. (Red Road), starting at 8 PM. Tickets are $25 and $30, available at pinecrestgardens.org.

Cost: $12 Adults; $8 Kids; Family Pack (2 Adults + 2 Kids) $30

Orchestra Miami will present a fun-filled Family Concert, featuring a performance of The Purple Palace, composed by Bruce Adolphe with the story written by Louise Gikow. The 28-piece orchestra will be led by Orchestra Miami Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi along with a special guest narrator. This delightful program will last approximately 50 minutes and is perfect for children ages 3 and up.

The Purple Palace tells the comic but touching tale of the land of Chromatica, where everything is light and color. Queen Red and King Blue have a child, Princess Purple. When she becomes queen, she banishes all colors but purple. This leads to nothing but trouble for her, and she eventually comes to understand her mistake. She invites all the banished colors to return, and Chromatica is once again vibrant and full of color. Beyond its affirmative social message for children- emphasizing the value of diversity and democracy- the story is rich in visual images that are clearly portrayed in the music. Each color has a theme, and as the plot unfolds, orchestral colors are varied and mixed just as an artist would use colors to illustrate the story in a book.

The concert will be on Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 4:00 PM at Pinecrest Gardens’ Banyan Bowl, located at 11000 SW 57 Avenue, Pinecrest, FL 33156. Tickets are $12 for Adults and $8 for children, and Family Packs (2 Adults & 2 Children) are available for $30. Children 2 and younger admitted free of charge with lap seating only. Seating is by general admission and there is ample free, on-site parking.

Cost: $5

Pinecrest, Fla. – Internationally-renowned contemporary artist and filmmaker Philip Haas will display his acclaimed FOUR SEASONS installation November 16th to April 6, 2015 in Pinecrest Gardens’ lush botanical sanctuary.

Consisting of four 15-foot-tall busts, Haas’s FOUR SEASONS bring 16th-century Renaissance portraiture by Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo into modern times through a transformation of scale, material and dimensionality.

While Arcimboldo’s paintings present each subject in profile, Haas’s unconventional twist on the classical form allows visitors the opportunity to walk around the sculptures, to see the subjects from all sides, and from many different and surprising vantage points.

Each work represents an individual season and is distinctly unusual and extravagant. AUTUMN is comprised of fall vegetables, ripe grapes and leaves turning color. Weathered bark and verdant moss make up WINTER’s stoic bust, which sits on top of a cloak of straw. SPRING evokes rebirth and vibrancy with a face consisting of rose-colored petals and hair brimming with elaborate flowers. SUMMER’s hue is a variety of sun-kissed yellows; its face and headdress sprout onions, garlic, corn, peas, a multiplicity of fruit, and a cucumber nose. The sculptures are made of pigmented and painted fiberglass, supported by interior steel frames.

“I started the FOUR SEASONS project wanting to bring Arcimboldo’s Renaissance painted nature imagery into the 21st-century physical world. I can’t think of a better venue than Pinecrest Gardens to inaugurate the Florida tour of this work, where the sculptures will arrive in the one of the oldest outposts of the New World, having fled their earlier homes as paintings in European museums, to now rest, and blend in, for an extended period amid the lush tropical flora, rock formations and historic water features,” said Haas.

In marrying sculpture, painting, film, and architecture, Philip Haas has created a contemporary visual vocabulary all his own. He describes his process as “sculpting by thinking”. His groundbreaking artwork has been featured by museums, including the National Gallery of Art (Washington DC), the Kimbell Art Museum (Fort Worth, Texas), Dulwich Picture Gallery (United Kingdom), and Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris). In the public realm, his work has been exhibited in the Piazza del Duomo (Milan) and the Gardens of Versailles (France). His feature films include ANGELS & INSECTS, THE MUSIC OF CHANCE and UP AT THE VILLA. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, as well as other awards. He has taught in the visual arts and creative writing programs at Princeton University. He lives and works in New York and London.

FOUR SEASONS by Philip Haas is the latest commission of Pinecrest Garden’s art program.

Opening the 2014-15 season of the South Motors Jazz Series, Pinecrest Gardens, October 18 at 8 PM

The FIU Big Band, directed by James Hacker, is the most visible artistic group at FIU. With over 25 major performances yearly it has become internationally recognized as one of the premier college jazz ensembles in the world. Invitations to the International Association for Jazz Education Convention, the Mid-West Band & Orchestra Clinic, the Wigan Jazz Festival, the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Quito Jazz Festival, and the Maceo Jazz Festival have taken this world-class group of graduate & undergraduate students beyond the realm of the ‘typical’ college band. “This big band sports an explosive sound and fluid mode of attack. They abide by a get up and go style of musicality via brisk charts and precision-oriented interplay. In effect, the album title offers a vivid depiction of the band’s multihued gait, where they tear it up and also temper the various pulses in spots.” (Glenn Astarita)

Wendy Pedersen is one of South Florida’s favorite performers. Her high-energy vocal delivery, with deep, convincing emotion has been impacting audiences for many years. Wendy has won many awards including the Southern Bell/Pace “Jazz Artist of the Year” and a Miami New Times “best vocalist”, saying, “Wendy can shake the rafters or break your heart…” “When she sings, her voice, an elegant melismatic instrument, evokes the standard emotions, yes, but deeper longings and muted desires.”
(Leonard Pitts, Miami Herald)
