Morabeza” got 4 nominations by Cabo Verde Music Awards! “Reggadera” won for Best Coladeira at CV Music Awards! jpgHear my songs on myspace.com/mariadebarros
Biography
Maria de Barros’ music transcends taste, preference and even language. It travels through countries dense with culture, picking up pieces of each along the way, combining distinct inflections of Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, France and Spain, while allowing the tradition and culture of Cape Verde to permeate. Melodies melt off her tongue with the same richness and maturity of a contemporary Cape Verde club singing Ella Fitzgerald, except that this songstress’s club is bursting with a taste of Latin spice, serving Portuguese and African cuisine with dancers to match and audiences swinging their hips to Maria’s sensual Morna and Coladeira beats.
Reed More
Her new album, Morabeza: “A simple and sublime expression that characterizes the soul of a people; it is solidarity in times of misfortune; it is kindness, tenderness, hospitality, sympathy and friendship”, is an eclectic blend of sounds with songs alternating in tempo, beat and style, making for an exciting tantalisation of the ear drums.
Maria invites you into her heart with the warmth of a close friend. Her album, aptly titled, epitomizes what she chooses to express: the tradition and beauty of the people and the landscape. Her music defines a much-needed optimism in the face of suffering and hardship in Africa. Although Maria was born in Dakar, Senegal and grew up in Nouackchott, Mauritania, her creative heart lies in the culturally rich Islands of Cape Verde, the birthplace of her parents.
Maria takes inspiration from things which fuel her heart: The love of her family, nostalgia of her mother’s voice around artist056_01bigthe house, the school children whom she sponsors in Cape Verde, the humbling of her fans and musicians and artists she admires, particularly godmother Cesaria Evora, “the barefoot diva”, who put the music of Cape Verde on the global jukebox. If music is food for the soul, then Maria de Barros is most certainly the chef. She takes inspiration from food and cooking too, but most importantly, life. Her optimistic outlook on life is evident in her music, as it serves as a glimmer in some of the darker times.
Morabeza, speaks to the past and present in its production, integrating a repertoire of songs written by revered songwriters such as Manuel d’Novas, Betu, Kaka Barbosa, Jorge Barbosa, Teofilo Chantre, Ramiro Mendes, as well as newer talent including the likes of To Alves, Calu di Guida, Joe Andrade, Kalu Monteiro and Djim Job.
Maria attributes her eclectic sound to her creative team who embody the spirit of their multicultural backgrounds. Her original style is evident in her 3 CDs: Nha Mundo, Danca Ma Mi and her latest album, Morabeza.
She describes her music as “a potpourri of African, Latin and European styles. It is truly a musical geography – but still very much rooted in the musical tradition of Cabo Verde.”
Maria’s musical canvas, with an undercoat of traditional Criolu daubed with bright flecks of Latin pop and African soul, is like a global triptych, made up of all different parts, influences and dialects, yet each piece standing alone, would be much less exciting or meaningful. The beauty can only be truly appreciated when all are perceived simultaneously – an aural masterpiece.
Maria seems to be following in her godmother’s “barefooted” steps with her global appeal. Her achievements include the Cape Verdean Artist of the Year, awarded by Cape Verdean Radio/TV/Newspapers in US in 2005, the Miriam Makeba Award for Excellence in Music, given by Radio DJs in the United States in 2006, and the Cultural Certificate of Merit awarded by the Ministry of Culture in Cape Verde in 2008. In January 2010, “Morabeza” received a nomination by NAACP Image Awards for “Outstanding World Music Album” and in 2011, it received 4 nominations by Cabo Verde Music Awards for which the song “Reggadera” won in the category for Best Coladeira and the Humanitarian Award was given to Maria for her work with the disabled and school children of Cabo Verde. Maria has also hosted the “Soul of Africa” programme on BET Jazz television since 2006 while a song “Reggadera” from her latest album was placed in the international hit HBO series “Entourage”. The recognition of this songstress’s talent is a testament to her global appeal and drive, which she hopes will help her in her strife for a better world.

The Best of Puerto Rico !

FRANKIE VAZQUEZ- Puerto Rico/ U.S.A2 (2)

Frankie Vazquez was born on January 6, 1958, in Salinas, Puerto Rico. From six months to twelve years old, he lived with his parents in New York, after growing in Guayama (PR), where his father had a restaurant. His father gives him his first conga at the age of 10 years, and another two years later, allowing the child to practice the rhythm of the disks of his mother: El Gran Combo, Cortijo and Eddie Palmieri. His parents helped him to create his own band at the age of 16 years: (Los Generales) where he played congas. The band performed concerts in the restaurant for his father. Suddenly replacing the singer of the band, he then dedicated to singing, without forgetting the drums.

At 17 years, he participates in three orchestras: then appointed his own band “The Soul Latina,” The University’s Orchestra and The Orchestra of an “elder” conductor guitar teacher of (seventy-years). This taught the typical rhythms:(bombas), (plenas), (aguinaldos),and (le-lo-lais). In 1976, becomes a member of an orchestra where professional musicians as his cousin Miguel Pollo (Del Gran Combo). Passionate fan of Hector Lavoe, Ismael Miranda, Ismael Rivera, Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez, Ismael Quintana, says he knows by heart all there albums. So the singer was nicknamed “Juke Box” because he can sing any song from beginning to end.

In 1977, his cousin David Sanchez singer of orchestra (Fuego 77) invited him to New York. Frankie sells records and makes the trip with a few dollars in his hands. Frankie sings higher than David and Al Santiago’s, exactly what they wanted. The producer says that Frankie is friendly and energetic and hires him to his first recording with this group:

• Fuego ’77 (Alegre Records, 1978)

Frankie sings: “Nueva York“, where his young voice is barely recognizable:

+ Nueva York sitio de oportunidad

+ Nueva York la ciudad que mas quiero

+ Tengo yo el presentimiento de que un dia llegaria a triufar

 

In others, David Sanchez and Frankie is singing in the chorus. Both are grateful to the “credits” for having contributed to the soneos. This album is wonderful, no song disappointments, contrary there is a communicative power of the first to the last song. “Fuego 77″ was a gang of youths who had about 20 years.

Angela Hagenbach- Singer (U.S.A)179280_185912644760367_185849558100009_612599_6417370_n

Kansas City singer/songwriter, “Angela Hagenbach, is one of those rare jazz vocalists who finds more in a song than the composer penned. Certainly more than one finds on the lyric sheet. Like Sarah Vaughan or Shirley Horn, Angela Hagenbach inhabits a song, and breathes new life into her carefully selected material. “Poetry of Love” is the answer to the question, ‘Where have all the great jazz vocal records gone?’” writes Mark Bacon Producer/Host, Jazz After Dark and Pan American Rhythms, KRVS 88.7 FM, Lafayette & Lake Charles, LA.

READ MORE
Hagenbach’s 2003 tour of Brazil garnered SRO concerts in Rio de Janeiro and Ilhabela where she previewed selections from her latest recording, Poetry of Love. This star-studded disc features jazz legends Clark Terry and Jimmy Heath. Also appearing are Russell Malone, James Williams, Don Braden and others, along with Kansas City based sextet.

Singing everything from swinging straight-ahead Jazz Standards, Blues, and original compositions to sensual rhythmic Latin Jazz, Angela was praised by Cadence Magazine and JazzTimes for her “…Immediately appealing voice and razor sharp intonation.” Her 2001 national debut, Weaver of Dreams, garnered three stars from Downbeat Magazine, and was an immediate radio success. Weaver of Dreams shot to number five on the Gavin Jazz Chart in just six short weeks.

Her professional music career was launched in 1990; by 1994 Angela released her critically acclaimed recording debut 707hagen1Come Fly with Me on Amazon Records. Scott Yanow of LA Jazz Scene, described it as “Full of rhythmic fire.” Showcasing her Latin side, Angela released Angela Hagenbach HOT Latin Jazz in 1995. “…There is nothing more beautiful than a mixture of styles. To our delight, Angela Hagenbach Hot Latin Jazz does it with assurance, taking advantage of every moment,” praised Sergio Mielnizenko, Producer of NPR’s Brazilian Hour. Patricia Meyers from JazzTimes applauded Feel the Magic, Angela’s 1997 release, “She possesses an extraordinary range, excellent phrasing and a singular style.” She also won rave reviews for her theatrical debut when she co-starred in Duke Ellington’s Sophisticated Ladies, presented in 2002 by The Theater League of Kansas City.

As a fashion model, Angela graced international runways and appeared in countless television and radio commercials and print advertisements. Hagenbach’s talent again placed her on the international stage and was twice chosen to represent the United States as a Jazz Ambassador to the world under the auspices of the United States Information Agency and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Her world tours included performances and workshops throughout Africa in 1998 and in Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Oman, Uganda, Ethiopia, India, Thailand and Malaysia in 2000. Festival performance highlights include opening for Ray Charles in 2001 at Jazz in Marciac, France, A Tribute to Louie Armstrong in 2002, with Laurent Filipe and the Cultur Porto Big Band to a SRO Porto, Portugal crowd, and most recently, Hagenbach was the Opening Act for Poncho Sanchez at the Gene Harris Festival and for Ramsey Lewis in Ft. Pierce, FL.

About

“Mike del Ferro is a multi talented musician and composer who gives us a tasteful display of his harmony, versatility and

  melody” -Toots Thielemans
Biography

Dutch pianist Mike del Ferro is a highly sought-after composer, pianist and arranger who writes and performs in an impressive array of musical genres.He has travelled the world extensively (more then 90 countries), searching for collaborations with musicians from cultures quite different to his own, and the musical results have been eye-opening, building musical bridges between cultures not norm

ally within reach of each other. He has managed to combine elements of the revered canons of Western music interspersed with the audacity of jazz improvisation, and paying tribute to the ancient structures of Asian, South American and African traditional music.He has recently signed a contract with Challenge records for a series of 10 CD’s, collaborations with musicians from all over the world, based on his travels.The first trio CD will be released worldwide in the fall of 2011, and the second production in the spring of 2012, with guest artists from Brazil.

Mike’s father was opera singer Leonard del Ferro (1921-1992), who sang and recorded with Maria Callas, and his childhood was thus filled with music of the highest order.A native of Amsterdam, he started his career studying classical piano at the age of nine and, after falling in love with jazz, he focused his studies on jazz and received a Masters of Music in Contemporary Music from the Amsterdam Conservatory.In 1989 he won First Prize at the Rotterdam Jazz Piano Competition, the Soloist Prize at the Europe Jazz Contest in Brussels, and First Prize at the Karlovy Vary Jazz contest and from 1993-1996 studied composition and arranging with Bob Brookmeyer at the Musikhochschule in Cologne, Germany. In 1995 Mike was appointed to the faculty of the Royal Conservatory in Gent, Belgium where he taught jazz piano until 1997. His reputation as a soloist, accompanist, composer and arranger has led to worldwide performances, recordings and tours with musicians such as Toots Thielemans, Jack DeJohnette, Oscar Castro Neves, Deborah Brown, Erik Truffaz, Jorge Rossy, Sibongile Khumalo, Carl Allen, Scott Hamilton, Richard Galliano, Thijs van Leer (Focus), Harold Land, Jan Akkerman, Norma Winstone, Benny Bailey, Candy Dulfer, Trijntje Oosterhuis, Badi Assad, Fernanda Porto, Madou Diabate and Maria Pia deVito. He has also recorded dozens of albums in many different genres from Dixieland to Salsa and has arranged music for animation for Danish animator and Oscar winner, Börge Ring.Mike del Ferro goes by Mark Twain’s dictum – “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime” – and his music reflects the array of influences that he has picked up in some of the most exotic places in the world.

Joel Frahm’s May 1st release, We Used to Dance, places him in the company
of master musicians Kenny Barron (piano), Rufus Reid (bass), and Victor
Lewis (drums).  Frahm more than holds his own in showing both the chops
and lyricism that has made him an irreplaceable part of so many sessions
in his two decades on the jazz scene.
Surrounded by jazz legends, Frahm makes this recording a true “coming
out party” for his maturing artistry. It is his most ambitious CD to date, featuring six of his original compositions that come to life in beautiful and variegated ways in the hands of this remarkable band. “It was an honor and a
watershed experience to make this record with these incredible musicians”
he says.
Having made a name for himself through his associations with singer Jane
Monheit and boyhood friend, pianist Brad Mehldau, Frahm hones his own
voice on this breakout recording. Joel has also worked with a vast array of
musical peers and jazz legends including Maynard Ferguson, Betty Carter,
Matt Wilson, Larry Goldings, Dewey Redman, Lee Konitz, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Andrew Hill, Ben Allison, Pat Martino, Ingrid Jensen, Dena Derose,
The Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Kyle Eastwood and many others.
Born in Racine, WI in 1969, Frahm attended the Mason Gross School for
the Arts and earned his B.A. in Jazz Performance at Manhattan School of
Music. He released three highly regarded CDs on Palmetto: The Navigator,
Don’t Explain (with Mehldau), and Sorry No Decaf.   Don’t Explain, his
latest, was the number one jazz release for radio play in the United States
for two consecutive weeks in 2004, according to jazzweek.com airplay chart
and also reached number one on college radio for one week, according to
College Music Journal’s airplay chart. Joel was also recently selected in
DownBeat Magazine’s Critics Poll as a Rising Star in the category of tenor
