The David Kikoski Quartet featuring Eric Alexander April 17

David Kikoski has had a long career as one of the New York area’s swingingest pianists. His band features NY all-stars with renowned tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, bassist Joe Martin and the incomparable drummer, Billy Hart. The online-only concert is April 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm EDT, South Florida JAZZ on ViewStub. The $15 ticket also includes 360 days of extended access to re-watch the concert in case you miss the premier. Link: https://viewstub.com/David-Kikoski-Quartet-feat-Eric-Alexander

While Kikoski can frequently get into that hard-core beast-like state of effervescent, muscular swing, he can also play with great beauty, sensitivity and lyricism, especially on ballads and when accompanying vocalists. Tonight, along with preferred rhythm section mates Joe Martin on bass and the splendid, venerable drummer, Billy Hart, is tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, who has been a South Florida JAZZ favorite for several years, now making his fourth appearance. Alexander is one of the most respected and also prolific artists on the jazz scene.

PS: You told us and we’ve listened – you will be able to view the concert to your Smart TV via YouTube. Viewstub will send you an access code for the concert. On the Viewstub viewing page there is link to YouTube from which you then can cast the content to your TV.

Website
Cost: $15

Ten Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, and a Soul Train Award, Take 6 is the most awarded a cappella group in history. Any singer who aspires for vocal excellence cannot overlook the contributions these men have made to music. Take 6 has performed with and won praise from such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ben E. King, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Al Jarreau, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, and Whitney Houston, to name a very few. Some of the honors Take 6 has enjoyed over the past few years include being chosen as the first musical group to perform in Cuba at the normalization of relations between our two countries, and their induction into The Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

What makes the music and the group last this long? The answers are direct and simple: faith, friendship, respect, and love of music. The multi-platinum selling sextet says of their longevity, “We are family in the sense that we care deeply about each other, which helps keep us together. We have times when it gets tough, but we pull together because of the love and respect we have for one another. The group’s willingness to let members do other projects also adds to the brand and the cohesiveness of the group,” says Joey Kibble. Kibble is a motivational speaker and Alvin Chea does voiceover work session-singing on dozens of TV shows, feature films and commercials with his uniquely recognizable bass vocals. Two of the members have solo projects in the works, others produce outside acts, Mark Kibble arranges for A-list artists and McKnight is working on a documentary. “It adds even more credibility and depth to the group as a whole, enriched by each of our outside skills and experiences,” Kibble adds.

Dan Tepfer in “Bach to the Future”

On Saturday, March 20 at 8 PM EDT (GMT – 4:00), the astonishing pianistic and technological talent of Dan Tepfer will be on display as he follows the arc of J.S. Bach and his impact on modern jazz in “Bach to the Future,” an incredible journey. This concert, followed by a Meet & Greet with the artist, is being presented as an exclusive livestreamed experience.

Dan Tepfer is one of this generation’s most extraordinary and brilliant talents, earning an international reputation as a pianist-composer and AI innovator with wide-ranging ambition and individualism. By looking at his tour schedule, it’s impossible to predict what Dan will do next. He has performed around the world with some of the leading lights in jazz and classical music, spending a decade as sidekick to the late, legendary alto saxophonist, Lee Konitz, and then becoming a favored accompanist to soprano Renée Fleming.

Whether it is his extraordinary original and improvisational expressions of Bach’s Goldberg Variations or the ingenious intersection between science and art in Natural Machines, Dan Tepfer unfailingly thrills and astounds.

On Friday, March 26 at 7:00 p.m., the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) presents Melanie Charles in its third edition of Virtual Jazz at MOCA. Melanie Charles is a Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter and flutist of Haitian descent, with a creative fluidity spanning Jazz, soul, experimental, and Haitian roots music.

Viewers and their whole families do not have to leave the comfort of their homes to enjoy her sound.

Charles creates a space where tradition meets present time, using Roland SPs, loop pedals, and the flute to blur the lines between and among social classes, cultures, genders, and theories to create a world where opposing elements can co-exist. Her recent television appearances include Good Morning America, SNL, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Since the onset of COVID-19, MOCA suspended the Jazz at MOCA concert series due to health protocols. With the goal of ensuring the continuity of Jazz at MOCA, the museum will launch the program virtually, in partnership with WDNA Radio—South Florida’s premier jazz radio station. Hosted by WDNA’s Carter Jackson-Brown, the virtual series will feature the best of South Florida’s young and innovative musicians. The concert will take place virtually on the last Friday of every month at 7:00 p.m.

To watch live, guests may visit https://mocanomi.org/virtual-jazz-at-moca/

Cost: $15

Piano prodigy Joey Alexander is the next featured artist scheduled to perform at ‘JazzAid Live at the Banyan Bowl’ at Pinecrest Gardens. At just 17 years old, the young musician has countless accolades under his belt, including a solo performance at the 58th Grammy Awards and a White House performance for the Obamas alongside Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding, as well as an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and a Carnegie Hall debut.

Joining Alexander will be Ashley Pezzotti, a 24 year old graduate of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, whose jazz career is taking off. Pezzotti was the winner of the JazzMemes-hosted #WhatTheEllaChallenge, singing along to Alexander’s song, Someone to Watch Over Me. Pezzotti released her first studio album, We’ve Only Just Begun, in 2019.

Alexander’s upcoming virtual concert will broadcast live from the Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 13. The cost is $15 for an individual performance, with a generous portion of ticket sales being donated to World Central Kitchen. Tickets can be purchased online at www.pinecrestgardens.org/jazzaid.

A funny thing happened to Joey Alexander over the past five years, a whirlwind period during which he became the most brilliantly precocious talent in jazz history, the youngest musician ever nominated for a Grammy Award in a jazz category; and a media favorite who’s earned a profile on 60 Minutes, a front-page profile in the New York Times and other premier coverage. As a pianist, composer, and bandleader, Joey Alexander is enjoying one of the most ascendant careers in jazz, thanks to his mind-blowing technique, innate musical smarts, and ability to communicate irresistible joy. At the 2016 Grammy Awards, he played during both the pre-telecast and the primetime TV event. That same year, he also performed with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding for the Obamas at the White House, as part of a nationally televised International Jazz Day special. In 2018, he headlined Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater with a 20-piece string section orchestrated and conducted by Grammy nominee Richard DeRosa. On October 18, 2019, he made his triumphant Carnegie Hall debut to a sold-out Zankel Hall crowd. Early on in his ascent, the trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center leader Wynton Marsalis said that “there has never been anyone … who could play like that at his age.” Marsalis, who essentially “discovered” Alexander via his YouTube videos and invited him to New York, was spot-on in his assessment. And today, with his newest album release, “WARNA,” Joey Alexander continues to perform at the highest level. Joey will be joined by Special Guest vocalist from New York (and Miami native) Ashley Pezzotti

WHAT: Coleridge-Taylor: Clarinet Quintet in F# minor, Op. 10
Brahms Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op.115

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was an English composer and conductor. Of mixed race birth, he achieved such success that he was referred to by white New York musicians as the “African Mahler” when he had three tours of the United States in the early 1900s. Coleridge-Taylor was particularly known for his three cantatas on the epic poem, Song of Hiawatha by American Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Coleridge-Taylor premiered the first section in 1898, when he was 22.

Johannes Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115, was written in 1891 for the clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld. It is scored for a clarinet in A with a string quartet. At the time Brahms started composing his Clarinet Quintet, only a few works had been composed for this type of ensemble. Examples of clarinet quintets include those by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Giacomo Meyerbeer and Alexander Glazunov. Brahms had retired from composing prior to listening to Richard Mühlfeld play. Brahms was very enthusiastic about Mühlfeld. That summer at Bad Ischl, he composed the Clarinet Quintet and his Clarinet Trio Op. 114, both of them for Mühlfeld. Brahms modeled his composition after Mozart’s.

MOCA North Miami Hosts Haitian Independence Day Celebration Featuring Inez Barlatier, Jan Sebon and Fabienne Josaphat 1/1/21

MOCA North Miami Hosts Haitian Independence Day Celebration Featuring Inez Barlatier, Jan Sebon and Fabienne Josaphat
Friday, 01/01/2021-, 07:00 pm-
RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

In honor of Haitian Independence Day, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is proud to host Haitian-American multidisciplinary artist Inez Barlatier, musician and surrealist visual artist Jan Sebon, and author Fabienne Josaphat for an intimate program of music and poetry on Jan. 1. This virtual performance coincides with the museum’s current exhibition “Life & Spirituality in Haitian Art: Selection from the Betty and Isaac Rudman Trust Collection,” on view through March 14, 2021.

Initiated by the voodoo ceremony of Bois Caïman on the night of August 14, 1791, The Haitian Revolution represents one of the key turning points in the history of the western world and human rights. Led by enslaved Africans in the French colony of Saint Domingue, the revolution resulted in the abolition of slavery in the colony, the first to do so in the western world, and the birth of Haiti on January 1 of 1804. Today, Haitian in Haiti and the diaspora celebrate their Independence in honor of a line of ancestors that fought for their freedom. At the center of the celebration is Soup Joumou, a traditional soup that becomes a symbol of their freedom. MOCA North Miami is pleased to celebrate our Haitian community.

The acts include:

Inez Barlatier is a Haitian-American multidisciplinary artist. At the age of 12 years old, she joined her father’s band, Jan Sebon & Kazak International. Inez later led her own band, Kazoots, for 6 years. She has received a Knight Arts Champion, a L.E.A.P. and an Artist Relief grant supporting her ongoing projects. Inez developed a children’s show entitled “Ayiti: Stories & Songs from Haiti” which was selected as a Spotlight presentation at the 2020 International Performance Art for Youth Conference.

Jan Sebon is a musician and visual artist from Haiti. He is a staple in Miami as pioneering Haitian Jazz music in Miami with his band Koleksyon Kazak. Sebon has hosted political radio shows in Haiti resulting in him being exiled and moving to Miami at the age of 22. He later became an activist and community organizer, fighting for Haitian immigrant rights and hosting another radio show on WDNA in Miami. He has been performing in Miami for over 30 years and has toured internationally while being a former board member at the Miami Light Project. Sebon is also a masterful African and Haitian drummer and surrealist visual artist.

Fabienne Josaphat is the author of Dancing in the Baron’s Shadow, a debut novel released with Unnamed Press and translated into French by Calmann-Levy. Her essay, Summer is an Empty House, recently made the Notable Essays mentions in Best American Essays 2016. Her fiction, non-fiction and poetry have been featured in the African American Review, The Master’s Review, Grist Journal, Damselfly, Hinchas de Poesia, Off the Coast Journal and The Caribbean Writer, as well as in Eight Miami Poets, a Jai-Alai Books poetry anthology. She was recently a national juror for the 2019 Scholastic Awards. She lives in South Florida.

The panel will be free and open to the public via the Zoom video conferencing platform.

The much-anticipated Empire Social Lounge is the newest project by the proprietors
of Casa De Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar

South Miami welcomes Empire Social Lounge, the second Miami location by the founders of the Prime Cigar brand. Empire Social is bringing a dose of “Sophisticated Relaxation” to South Miami. Proprietors Jason Reznik, Ryan Leeds and Peter Berntsen will proudly unveil Empire Social (which is the evolution of the Prime Cigar brand). Hours of operation Sunday – Saturday, 12:00 Noon until close.

“Sophisticated Relaxation” is a motto created by Empire Social/Prime Cigars founders, Jason Reznik and Ryan Leeds.It was embraced by patrons of their first venture which was Prime Cigar Boca Raton, considered THE cigar & whiskey lounge in all of Florida. The popularity of Prime Cigar Boca Raton carried over to their second venture, the widely acclaimed Casa de Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar in Brickell-Miami. The success of these two locations created a demand in the Magic City which will spawn the much-anticipated Empire Social Lounge.

The Empire Social brand is a sophisticated lounge, which features a walk-in humidor, full bar stocked with rare and hard to find whiskeys, member’s lounge, and patio. Custom furniture and design elements (which exude simple elegance) will please the cigar aficionados, or those looking for a unique experience, a rare whiskey, craft cocktails, or a nightcap. Empire Social is perfect anchor location for one of Miami’s most dynamic neighborhoods, Downtown Dadeland.
The owners and management are well known for being customer-centric which led to the commission of a state-of-the-art air control system for Empire Social Lounge. This innovative A/C replaces 100 percent of the air constantly to provide an environment which will curb smoke and create a comfortable environment for patrons.

The Prime Cigar/Empire Social brand was born out of the life experiences between father and son. Ryan Leeds and his father shared a close relationship, as they bonded over the love of premium cigars, fine spirits, traveling, and all things luxury. Ryan was inspired to bring together best elements of his travels under one roof. Today, guests come from all over the world to experience “Sophisticated Relaxation.”

Black VoicesS
An Evening of Music and Thought

with guest speakers Allison Matulli and Darius Daughtry
Hosted by Nicole Henry

WHAT: The South Beach Chamber Ensemble presents a FREE Livestream broadcast of the South Beach Chamber Ensemble performing chamber music by African-American and African-French composers, with poetry and performance by Allison Matulli and Darius V. Daughtry

The program comprises four works:

Joseph Bologne: String Quartet #1 in C major (1771)
Jessie Montgomery: Strum (2012)
DBR: String Quartet No. 1, “X” (1993)
George Walker: String Quartet #1(1946)

WHO: Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799) was a champion fencer, classical composer, virtuoso violinist, friend of Mozart and conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris. Today the Chevalier de Saint-Georges is best remembered as the first known classical composer who was of African ancestry; he composed numerous string quartets and other instrumental music, and opera.

Jessie Montgomery is an acclaimed composer, violinist, and educator. She is the recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award from the ASCAP Foundation, and her works are performed frequently around the world by leading musicians and ensembles. Her music interweaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, language, and social justice, placing her squarely as one of the most relevant interpreters of 21st-century American sound and experience.

Daniel Bernard Roumain (“DBR”) is a prolific and endlessly collaborative composer, performer, educator, and social entrepreneur. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets” (New York Times), DBR has worked with artists from Philip Glass to Bill T. Jones to Lady Gaga; appeared on NPR, American Idol, and ESPN; and has collaborated with the Sydney Opera House and the City of Burlington, Vermont. He has been acclaimed as a violinist and activist.

George Theophilus Walker (1922-2018) was an American composer, pianist, and organist, who was the first African American to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Music for “Lilacs” in 1996. Over the course of five decades, he balanced a career as a concert pianist, teacher, and composer. In 1946, Walker composed his String Quartet #1. A string orchestra arrangement of the second movement of that work received its world premiere in a radio broadcast that was conducted by pianist Seymour Lipkin. Originally titled “Lament”, Walker later changed the title to “Lyric for Strings.” It has been one of the most frequently performed orchestral works by a living American composer.

The performers:

The South Beach Chamber Ensemble was founded in 1997 by Michael Andrews. It began with a free concert of Haydn and Dvorak Piano Trios at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach. Our Music in Beautiful Spaces series has been supported by Miami Beach Cultural Arts Council and the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs for more than 20 years. The ensemble is one of the only arts organizations in south Florida dedicated to offering affordable chamber music programs to new audiences while showcasing local musical talent. Music in Motion: Miami to Rio, August and September 2005, was a great success. Our performances of Villa-Lobos, Copland and Mendelssohn at the Villa-Lobos Museum, Rio de Janeiro and Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, were well received in both countries. Music in Motion: Miami-Argentina-Brazil, September 2007, included concerts and student programs in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Buenos Aires, Miami Beach and Miami Shores.

Jessie Montgomery: rasgueo (2012)
DBR: Cuarteto de cuerda No. 1, “X” (1993)
George Walker: Cuarteto de cuerdas # 1 (1946)

QUIÉN: Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799) fue un campeón de esgrima, compositor clásico, violinista virtuoso, amigo de Mozart y director de la principal orquesta sinfónica de París. Hoy en día, el Chevalier de Saint-Georges es mejor recordado como el primer compositor clásico conocido de ascendencia africana; compuso numerosos cuartetos de cuerda y otra música instrumental y ópera.

Jessie Montgomery es un compositor, violinista y educador aclamado. Ha recibido el premio Leonard Bernstein de la Fundación ASCAP y sus obras se interpretan con frecuencia en todo el mundo por destacados músicos y conjuntos. Su música entrelaza la música clásica con elementos de la música vernácula, la improvisación, el lenguaje y la justicia social, lo que la coloca directamente como una de las intérpretes más relevantes del sonido y la experiencia estadounidenses del siglo XXI.

Daniel Bernard Roumain (“DBR”) es un compositor, intérprete, educador y emprendedor social prolífico y que colabora constantemente. “Tan omnívoro como se vuelve un artista contemporáneo” (New York Times), DBR ha trabajado con artistas desde Philip Glass hasta Bill T. Jones y Lady Gaga; apareció en NPR, American Idol y ESPN; y ha colaborado con la Ópera de Sydney y la Ciudad de Burlington, Vermont. Ha sido aclamado como violinista y activista.

George Theophilus Walker (1922-2018) fue un compositor, pianista y organista estadounidense, que fue el primer afroamericano en ganar el Premio Pulitzer de Música por “Lilacs” en 1996. A lo largo de cinco décadas, equilibró una carrera como concertista de piano, profesor y compositor. En 1946, Walker compuso su String Quartet # 1. Un arreglo de orquesta de cuerdas del segundo movimiento de esa obra recibió su estreno mundial en una transmisión de radio que fue dirigida por el pianista Seymour Lipkin. Originalmente titulado “Lament”, Walker luego cambió el título a “Lyric for Strings”. Ha sido una de las obras orquestales más interpretadas por un compositor estadounidense vivo.

Los artistas:

El conjunto de cámara de South Beach fue fundado en 1997 por Michael Andrews. Comenzó con un concierto gratuito de Haydn y Dvorak Piano Trios en el Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach. Nuestra serie Music in Beautiful Spaces ha sido apoyada por el Consejo de Artes Culturales de Miami Beach y el Departamento de Asuntos Culturales de Miami-Dade durante más de 20 años. El conjunto es una de las únicas organizaciones artísticas en el sur de Florida dedicada a ofrecer programas de música de cámara asequibles a nuevas audiencias mientras muestra el talento musical local.

Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone – especially people living with HIV and their families – your support. On Tuesday, December 1 at 8:30 a.m. The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) will present the official kick-off to World AIDS Day, founded in 1988 and themed this year as Rock the Ribbon. Hosted by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, the event will feature special guests Chuck Panozzo, Styx rock band member, and Laura Vivas, recording artist and former contestant on The Voice.

World AIDS Museum will gather elected officials, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Attendees will embrace this community gathering with special performances by Laura Vivas and the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating. DJ Aulden Brown will add his flair to rock the crowd.

Special guest Styx rock band member Chuck Panozzo will be one of the voices heard as to why this day is so important. Charles Salvatore “Chuck” Panozzo is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis De Young. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003, and currently tours with Styx on a regular basis.

Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year, he released his autobiography “The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life with Styx.”

Laura Vivas will offer a live performance that will coincide with the rock theme. Her blind audition on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Season 3, resulted in a spot on Christina Aguilera’s team. A native of Puerto Rico, Vivas’ career began at age 18 singing back-up for local artists. Since 2007, she has been the lead singer and the lone female in a six-piece South Florida cover band called Re-Mix. She has opened for artists such as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Bruce Hornsby and more.

The event, sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, Seasons 52, Michael Murphy Photography and GPR | Goodman Public Relations, will be open to the public and take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Facial coverings will be required. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.worldaidsmuseum.org.

South Florida’s favorite Halloween show, IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS* (previously Hocus Pocus Live) is landing at The Kelsey Theater in Lake Park for two nights of holiday fun on October 30 and 31 (performances are at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. each night; each runs 1 hour and 15 minutes). Tickets are on sale with the opportunity to save $10.

Following eight consecutive years of instant sell-outs, the wildly popular all-ages tribute show brings Halloween’s most beloved classic to life with incredible detail. The audience is invited to take a dive into ‘90s nostalgia as South Florida’s top drag performers transform into the film’s iconic characters. All are invited to join this limited-seating, socially distanced event as they tell the story of three wacky witches, accidentally resurrected by teen pranksters on Halloween night in 1993. The dynamic lead cast includes Nicole Halliwell as Winifred Sanderson, Calypso Monroe as Sarah Sanderson and Nicky Monet as Mary Sanderson.

Produced and created by South Florida’s drag mastermind Nicole Halliwell (TLC’s I am Jazz, America’s Got Talent, Queenz The Drag Experience), IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS boasts intricately detailed sets, eerily uncanny lookalikes, replica props and costuming, and more in this immersive stage spectacle. Going light years beyond your standard “drag show,” there’s nothing quite like this! Prior to each performance, audiences can enjoy “Wicked Villains,” a “delightfully evil preshow,” starring the cast of QUEENZ The Drag Experience as even more fabulous female impersonators transform into such favorite cartoon villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella DeVille, and The Evil Queen.

Tickets are now on sale starting at $65 for general admission, and $75 for “front row” VIP, which includes a souvenir gift pack.
