Joey DeFrancesco Trio

Joey-defrancesco-trio-2019-Poster-.jpg

Friday, February 1, 2019, 8:00 p.m.
Venue: Arts and Technology Lecture Hall
Admission: $20
Season: 2018-19


The New York Times praised Grammy-nominated Joey DeFrancesco as “master of rhythmic pocket, and of the custom of stomping bass lines beneath chords and riffs.”  He has garnered numerous awards, was inducted into the Hammond Organ Hall of Fame in 2014 and has topped the critics polls in DownBeat Magazine eleven times over the past 15 years and the readers polls every year since 2005.

Joining Joey will be Victor North on saxophone and Khary Shaheed on drums.

Amina Claudine Myers (New York, NY) -  Hammond B3 organ and voice
 
mail?url=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.constantcontac

The first-wave artists comprising the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians) encompassed a breadth of what would later become the organization's motto: "Great Black Music, From the Ancient to the Future". The groundbreaking initiative of self-determining musicians was born in 1960's Chicago, and its early members constituted a vital nexus of musically and geographically diverse histories and futures. 
 
Among these first-wave artists, none expresses their deep roots in Southern African American traditions quite like the virtuosic, versatile and emotionally moving pianist, organist, vocalist and composer 
Amina Claudine Myers. Born in a small Arkansas town of about 250 and raised in Arkansas and Texas, Myers was only four years old when she began playing the piano. While a teenager, the young prodigy was directing choirs and playing organ in her Dallas area church, while also beginning her studies of European classical piano repertoire. Already an experienced professional when she started college, Myers began making jazz, r&b and gospel gigs while attending Philander Smith in Little Rock. At Philander Smith, she majored in music education, played in a college jazz ensemble and studied classical piano. In 1963, a public school teaching job brought Myers to Chicago. There, she would join the AACM, while also working as accompanist to such jazz greats as Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt.     
 
In the AACM, the prodigious and multitalented player began working out musical ideas of her own. It was fertile ground for development, as Myers was among an emerging group of African American artists who would come to be known as some of the most important experimental composers and improvisers of their generation. Her versatility as a composer paralleled her versatility as a performer. A commitment to vocal works was nurtured in the early years of the AACM. It's been a career-long passion that has included notated and improvised solo and choral music, with a range of instrumental combinations. She has composed for orchestra, chamber ensembles and jazz orchestra. She has written musicals and plays, and also acted in the theater. In addition to being a master composer and improviser, Myers is also a valued interpreter. A short résumé of collaborators lending credence to her range and abilities includes Archie Shepp, Lester Bowie, Charlie Haden, James Blood Ulmer, Muhal Richard Abrams, Eddie Harris, Anthony Braxton, Henry Threadgill, Jim Pepper and Rahsaan Roland Kirk. 
 
In 2017, Nameless Sound was honored to present Amina Claudine Myers' first Texas appearance since her teenage years in the church. Two distinct concerts offered two aspects of Myer's music: a concert for voice and piano, and a pipe organ recital.   
 
For this appearance, we will experience Myers accompanying her own singing on Hammond B3 Organ. Bearing a voice with the depths of her gospel and the blues roots, and accompanying herself with virtuosic technique, Myers has earned critical acclaim for her vocal performances since her landmark 1980 release Amina Claudine Myers Salutes Bessie Smith.

Zimbabwe's hardest working band returns to North America for a whirlwind bi-coastal tour of Canada and the U.S. in April.
This will be the last and only chance to see Mokoomba in North America in 2019. Catch them preview new songs from their much-anticipated fourth album before they disappear into the studio later this year.

Hailing from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Mokoomba is one of Africa’s most exciting live bands, dazzling audiences worldwide with three albums and knockout live shows propelled by a potent blend of traditional Tonga and Luvale rhythms laced with funk, soul, soukous and other pan-African sounds

The Guardian's Robin Denslow called Mokoomba "the best young band in Zimbabwe", while Afropop World Wide's Banning Eyre has hailed them as "quite simply the most impressive band Zimbabwe has produced in recent memory". Jon Pareles of the New York Times called lead singer Mathias Muzaza's astonishing vocal range "riveting" and "griot-strength".

Since their breakthrough in 2008, winning the Music Crossroads Inter-Regional Festival, Mokoomba’s music has taken them on a worldwide journey. They’ve shared stages Hugh Masekela, Baba Maal, and the Talking Head’s Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz. They’ve rocked festivals from Roskilde to NOLA's Jazz and Heritage Festival and Womad UK. They've played iconic rooms from the Apollo Theater and The Kennedy Center, to London’s 100 Club and Amsterdam’s Melkweg. In 2018 they made their SXSW debut in Austin, TX and rocked Lollapalooza Berlin.

Mokoomba was nominated for a 2018 Songlines Award for "Best Group" — their second nomination from the prestigious UK magazine, after winning "Best Newcomer Award" in 2013. The group was also inducted into the Afropop Hall of Fame by the Peabody Award-winning public radio program Afropop Worldwide, taking their place alongside such greats as King Sunny Ade, Youssou N’Dour, Angelique Kidjo, and Thomas Mapfumo.

Singer-songwriter, guitarist and percussionist, Aurelio Martinez aka AURELIO (born 1969), is one of Central America’s most gifted performers. Born in Honduras, the artist is known for his powerful and evocative voice. He is a major tradition-bearer of the Garifuna culture and music and he is considered nowadays as the Cultural Ambassador of the Garifuna nation.

 

The Garinagu, commonly known as the Garifuna are people of Amerindian and West African descents who live along the coasts of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The original home of the Garifuna is St. Vincent (one of the windward islands in the West Indies) from which they were deported in 1796 by the British government and landed on Roatan island, situated in the Bay Islands of Honduras.

aurelio2.jpg

Aurelio grew up in a small Caribbean village called Plaplaya, surrounded by a family of talented musicians. His father was a well-known local troubadour who improvised Paranda songs containing Garifuna roots rhythms and Latin sounds. Following the influence of his uncles and grandfather, he became a brilliant drummer in his early childhood. From his vocally gifted mother, he learned to sing and picked up many songs she crafted. Actually, Aurelio began performing at Garifuna ceremonies when just a boy, even at the most sacred events where children were usually not even allowed. At the age of 14, the young man became a respected musician with a firm grounding in Garifuna rhythms, rituals and songs.

“We’re not going to let this culture die. I know I must continue my ancestors’ legacy and find new ways to express it. Few people know about it, but I adore it, and it’s something I must share with the world.” Aurelio.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows goes on rain or shine.

ANDREW F. SCOTT  

GRAMMY® Award-winning jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard, internationally renowned choreographer Rennie Harris and Dallas-based visual artist Andrew F. Scott team up for an interdisciplinary world-premiere performance that explores the ability of music and art to bring about racial healing.

This one-night only performance will expand upon a theme that Terence Blanchard began exploring a few years ago: racial tension and injustice. With live music, dance and visual projections, sculpture and projection mapping - Caravan: A Revolution on the Road will examine these larger societal issues, while the individual nuances of the stories will reflect the life experiences of each artist and their thoughts and feelings about Black Lives in the 21st century.

This performance is made possible by a grant from the TACA New Works Fund.

“A trumpeter of expressive urgency and a composer of expansive vision.”
 – The New York Times

ARTIST STATEMENT

This collaboration brings together live musical performance by Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective, choreography and dance by Rennie Harris and his company and Andrew F. Scott’s visual projections, sculpture and projection mapping. This project expands upon the theme that Terence Blanchard began exploring a few years ago. Responding to real life events stemming from racial tension and injustice, Blanchard and the E-Collective recorded an album, Breathless, and performed across America, visiting cities most affected by racial conflict by police and against police, including Dallas. Feeling empowered by the strong emotional reaction from the audiences – many were moved to tears – and recognizing the healing impact of his music on people, Blanchard decided to continue the conversation and engage more artists.

Terence Blanchard, Andrew Scott and Rennie Harris have teamed up to add a new dimension to the work Blanchard has done, to bring about a changing of hearts and souls. Blanchard’s fusion of jazz, R&B, blues, funk and soul synergistically interweaves with Harris’s approach to movement, which represents a kind of archaeology of the human spirit through vernacular African American dance styles. Scott’s conceptually-based visual projections and installations, which are rooted in African and African American art and culture, seamlessly integrates into the overall artistic narrative. The skeleton of the work examines these larger societal issues, while the individual nuances of the stories reflects the life experiences of each artist and their thoughts and feelings about Black Lives in the 21st century.

In Austin on May 31 at the 04 Center, and in Houston at the Heights Theater on June 1 (the only 2019 U.S. dates currently listed on artist website)

Often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara”, Vieux Farka Touré was born in Niafunké, Mali in 1981. He is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré, who died in 2006. Ali Farka Touré came from a historical tribe of soldiers, and defied his parents in becoming a musician. When Vieux was in his teens, he declared that he also wanted to be a musician. His father disapproved due to the pressures he had experienced being a musician. Rather, he wanted Vieux to become a soldier. But with help from family friend the kora maestro Toumani Diabaté, Vieux eventually convinced his father to give him his blessing to become a musician shortly before Ali passed.

Vieux was initially a drummer / calabash player at Mali’s Institut National des Arts, but secretly began playing guitar in 2001. Ali Farka Touré was weakened with cancer when Vieux announced that he was going to record an album. Ali recorded a couple of tracks with him, and these recordings, which can be heard on Vieux’s debut CD, were amongst his final ones. It has been said that the senior Touré played rough mixes of these songs when people visited him in his final days, at peace with, and proud of, his son’s talent as a musician.

In 2005, Eric Herman (still Vieux’s manager today) of Modiba Productions expressed an interest in producing an album for Vieux; this led to Vieux’s self-titled debut album, released by World Village in 2007. Ali Farka Touré’s work to tackle the problem of malaria is continued as 10% of proceeds are donated to Modiba’s “Fight Malaria” campaign in Niafunké through which over 3000 mosquito nets have been delivered to children and pregnant women in the Timbuktu region of Mali. On this first album, Vieux pays homage to his father and follows Ali’s musical tradition, giving new versions of the West African music that is echoed in the American blues. The album features Toumani Diabaté, as well as his late father. One of the tracks, ‘Courage’, is on the soundtrack of the film The First Grader (2010).

On his second record, Fondo on Six Degrees (2009), Vieux branched out and presented his own sound: while remaining true to the roots of his father’s music he uses elements of rock, Latin music, and other African influences. The album received a great deal of critical acclaim from across the globe, and Vieux was clearly moving out of his father’s shadow.

By June 2010, Vieux was performing at the opening concert for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. That month Vieux also released his first live album, LIVE. His live performances are highly energized and Vieux is known for dazzling crowds with his speed and dexterity on the guitar, as well as his palpable charisma and luminous smile, both of which captivate audiences from all audiences in spite of any language barriers (though Vieux does speak 8 languages).

In 2011 Vieux released his 3rd studio album, The Secret, so named because the listener will hear the secret of the blues with a blend of generations from father to son. It was produced by guitarist Eric Krasno (of the Soulive trio) and features South African-born vocalist Dave Matthews, Derek Trucks on electric slide guitar and jazz guitarist John Scofield. The title track is the last collaboration between Vieux and his late father. With the heralded release of The Secret, Vieux Farka Touré has clearly established himself as one of the world’s rare musical talents and guitar virtuosos with a distinct style that always pays homage to the past while looking towards the future.

Vieux released The Tel Aviv Session (Cumbancha) in April 2012, a collaborative project with Israeli superstar Idan Raichel dubbed ‘The Touré-Raichel Collective’ that has been hailed by fans and critics alike as a masterpiece and one of the best collaborative albums in the history of international music, drawing comparisons to Ali Farka Touré and Ry Cooder’s legendary Talking Timbuktu album. 

In 2013, Vieux Farka Touré’s beautiful and critically acclaimed latest album Mon Pays was released as an homage to his homeland.  Being that his native Mali had recently been splintered by territorial fighting between Tuareg and Islamic rebels since January 2012, Mon Pays was devoted to reminding the world about the beauty and culture of his native Mali. Translated as ‘My Country,’ this predominantly acoustic undertaking transformed into an artifact of cultural preservation. Two songs on the project -Future’ and ‘Peace’ feature Sidiki Diabate’s kora leading an emotional charge complemented by Touré’s spectacular guitar work. Both tracks represent an important generational “passing of the torch” as Sidiki’s father, Toumani is considered one of the greatest living kora masters and was a close friend of Vieux’s father Ali. Mon Pays has been widely hailed as the most mature and lovely record yet from one of this generation’s most exciting artists to come out of Mali and one of world music’s true rising stars.

Vieux reunited with Idan Raichel in Paris to record, release and subsequently tour their 2nd collaborative album as The Touré-Raichel Collective in 2014. The result was yet another musical and critical triumph, titled 'The Paris Session' (Cumbancha) revered by many as not just a musical gem for the ages but a powerful testimonial to the power of art and fraternity to transcend vast cultural and political divides.  In 2015, Vieux released another unexpected, genre-bending collaborative album, this time with New York-based singer Julia Easterlin, aptly titled 'Touristes'.   The album shot to the top of the iTunes World chart and earned critical acclaim, including that of John Schaefer (NPR) who called it "brilliant."  On April 7, 2017, Vieux released his latest album 'Samba', recorded live in front of a small audience at Applehead Studio in Woodstock, NY.  The album is already being hailed by critics as Vieux's finest, most well-rounded and mature album to date.  With each new project, Vieux expands his horizons, embraces new challenges and further entrenches his reputation as one of the world’s most talented and innovative musicians.

Mokoomba, a fabulous band from Zimbabwe, is actually performing tonight 3.7 miles from my home.

Well, I got to meet Mokoomba (a very friendly group of fellows) and had a long talk with their tour manager, but they did not actually perform, as the "promoter" did not advertise so that less than ten people showed up (and even with advertisement the audience base for African music in Dallas is pretty small), booked an inappropriate venue, and did not pay them (after they flew here from a California performance the day before). So I felt bad for them, even if frustrated at not hearing them play again (so near, yet so far).
