Drumming Workshop starts Tuesday-

I'm starting my next 4-week Rhythm Power® Hand Drumming class on Tuesday, October 9th.

I have room for a few more people to participate! We are playing primarily African Djembes, but I also include other instruments
that you like. I provide the instruments, and you can also bring your own.

The class meets from 7 to 8:30pm in Soquel Village (about six miles south of the city of Santa Cruz and just off Hwy 1), and costs $75 for the four, 90-minute meetings. All levels of experience are most welcome!

I keep the class small enough for everyone to get to know each other, and so I can give everyone as much individual attention as you wish.

In the class, we play fun and easy fundamental rhythms that can be applied to a wide range of musical styles (rock, reggae, and more) and situations including personal play, drum circles and family & friends jam sessions.

Rhythm Power is designed to be a fun way to drum for personal growth and empowerment, to build community, to develop percussion skills and to reinforce positive Life Rhythms. For more information about Rhythm Power:

http://www.handsondrum.com/personalgrowth.html

Contact me to register, and with any and all questions.

All the best,

   CALL FOR TRACKS - Jazz Society CD #6

Santa Cruz Jazz Vol 6 -- Call for tracks-

Dear Local Jazz Groups-

The Jazz society of santa cruz produces a compilation CD every couple of years that features tracks from local jazz groups.


We started in 2000 and have produced 5 so far. The purpose Is to create a historical ‘record ‘ of the local jazz groups that play in public here.


These cd’s are a musical snapshot of the jazz that locals and visitors to santa cruz heard in the year of that cd.

** This year we will do Santa Cruz Jazz vol 6, and for the first time

we are setting a theme- winter holiday music. We are seeking jazz versions of the holiday classics- well known carols or winter tunes like Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland, White Xmas, etc.

(please, no Frosty or Rudolph. this is for grown-ups). ( Public domain tunes like the carols are welcome because we don't have to pay royalties. )



** Tracks should be less than 5 mins long and should be submitted as audio tracks or wav files. (3 minutes is preferable because it means we can

include more bands.) Include names of the performers, and where and when the band has been playing in santa cruz, and contact info.



** Tracks should be submitted before September 1st. They will be produced and become available by mid November, in time for the holidays.

(We always get more tracks than can be included so there is no guarantee that all submitted tracks will get on).



These CDs are for documenting the local jazz scene over the years, and They are also for raising funds for the Jazz Society of Santa Cruz County
by selling them to local jazz fans for approx. $10. Hopefully the jazz society will make a couple of hundred bucks. (The Jazz Soc is non-profit, has no paid staff and no grants). There is no pay for the tracks, but a complimentary
cd will be given to the band.



We look forward to hearing your music.
Thanks for participating.

Jazz Society of Santa Cruz County

As always, we will have a full rhythm section.

We will use the Hal Leonard Real Book, vol 1, 6th edition
which is available at Thomas Music on Fair Street and many other places
including online, and the old Blue Gig Book (available at the workshop)

Vocalists-

You can download good printed charts including lyrics
for practically any standard tune by going to www.Wikifonia.org
You can get charts in any key!, its free! and its legal.
Download them and print them out for the workshop.
several in your key (for piano, bass, gtr), one a whole step higher
(for Bb instruments) and one version three half steps lower
(for the alto sax).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Parks & Rec on line registering
but it is easier to just do it by phoning them at 420 5270 (mon-thurs. 9-5).

Martan Mann Trio and Friends
Perform at Peachwood's
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 from 5:30 - 8:30 pm

This week's Featured Jazz Vocalist:
vocalist

Darryl Rowe

[Note from Martan: I used to accompany Darryl years ago in the Garden City. He is a "killer singer" - a real star. I'm so thrilled that we have re-met recently on Facebook. As I said before - if you are an aspiring singer - or, someone who wants to experience great jazz - don't miss this show. Darryl is treking here all the way from Oakland. Let's show him a great turnout.]

Darryl Rowe has been a presence in the San Francisco Bay area jazz scene for two decades, with appearances at Keystone Korner, the De Anza Hotel, Yoshi's, and the Montreaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. He has worked with Woody Herman, Dexter Gordon, Sergio Mendez, Bobby McFerrin, and Patrice Rushin. His voice moves easily from jazz standards to R&B and soul stylings.

We're off and running with the THIRD ANNUAL "JAZZ SUMMER NIGHTS" AT PEACHWOOD'S. This is the spectacular series where we present top-of-the-line jazz vocalists singing on the beautiful Peachwood's deck every Tuesday from 5:30 - 8:30 pm with the Martan Mann Trio (Martan on keys, Bill Bosch on bass & Olaf Schiappacasse on drums.

This is year, we feature great jazz vocalists from LA, Sacramento, Marin, Berkeley, Oakland, San Jose, Morgan Hill, and more.

The atmosphere on the deck at Peachwood's is idyllic and the food is fabulous. Don't forget we have a wonderful dance floor!!! Plan to join us every Tuesday for jazz on the deck. Tell your friends. There's nothing like this in the Santa Cruz area!!!

THIS YEAR'S LINE-UP:

Jim Greiner's Hands-On! Drumming®:
JIM GREINER--

I'm starting a 4-week Rhythm Power Hand Drumming Class in Soquel on Tuesday, February 21st. The class goes from 7 to 8:30pm, and meets on four consecutive Tuesday evenings: 2/21, 2/28, 3/6 & 3/13.

The cost is $75 for the four meetings. Please register and pay in advance: I will keep this class small enough to be able to give each member as much individual attention as desired.

You can mail a check to me at 2745 Daubenbiss Ave., Soquel, CA 95073. Let me know asap if this is your intention, and I will reserve a space for you.

Or pay with a credit card through my PayPal account. Contact me to have me email a PayPal invoice to you; it is easy to pay with your credit card... you do not need your own PayPal account.

I will cover beginning to intermediate hand drumming techniques and rhythms, customized for each member's level of experience. We will focus mostly on the African Djembe, but I will also integrate other instruments into the class, depending upon your area of interest. Other instrument options are: Congas, Bongos, Doumbek/Darabouka, Frame Drums, Shekere and other hand-held percussion instruments.

Play for fun, to advance in your personal drumming skills, to learn group rhythms, to get comfortable playing with others, to reinforce positive relaxing and breathing rhythms... and for more fun!

Blessings,

Jim

KAYE BOHLER

Great news!!!

I have a new website. Please take a look.

http://www.kayebohler.com/

Check out the four (4) star review from
DOWNBEAT Magazine
Kaye Bohler: Like a Flower (KB Records 2009)

Bohler is a belter who stands firmly in the blues tradition and yet can
turn on a dime into soul sophistication. Here she crosses musical
barriers with a sure sense of pace and fluidity in 10 solid songs that
she wrote about relationships. Attentive to the meaning of the
words she sings, dramatic but not histrionic, this Bay Area dynamo
enjoys the benefit of first-class horn and rhythm sections. Lead
guitarists Danny Caron and Sammy Verela are two veterans who
focus their responsive energy better then guest big shots TommyCastro and Robben Ford. Frank-John Hadley, DownBeat Magazine.

from Jim Greiner-

1) Conga Drum for Sale-

A new list member is selling an LP Matador Wood Conga (11 3/4" head diameter), excellent condition, for $250. It has the Almond Brown finish. Here is a link to LP's Matador wood drums

http://lpmusic.com/Product_Showcase/Congas/matador_wood_congas.html


and
2) WORKSHOPS-
I've been asked to do more Rhythm Power Workshops on both Saturdays and Sundays, so here we go:

Two Rhythm Power Hand Drumming Workshops in Soquel: Drumming for recreation, stress release and rhythmic fundamentals

* Saturday, October 29th from 1 to 3 pm

* Sunday, November 30th from 1 to 3 pm.

Each workshop is $25 (take both for only $40!) and covers:

-Fundamental techniques of Congas and Djembe, how to play without hurting your hands and how to get into a groove.
-How to progress from your current level of experience in a natural, step-by-step journey.
-Universal Rhythmic Elements such as pulse, upbeats, rhythmic phrasing, playing with other drummers and improvising.
-Using drumming as a fun way to reinforce positive life skills and life rhythms such as reinforcing effective breathing patterns, relaxing, letting go of the fear of mistakes, focusing on your core intentions, and more!

These workshops are fun, playful ways to connect with, and influence, your own inner rhythms, your own natural inner drummer and to meet and play with like-minded people!

For more info about Rhythm Power: http://www.handsondrum.com/personalgrowth.html

Please pre-register soon to save your place – I keep these workshops small in order to give you as much one-on-one attention as you wish!

Contact me for information about paying by check, or by credit card.

I also have two weekly, ongoing classes in Soquel that have openings:

Tuesday evenings: Rhythm Power Class from 7 to 8:30 pm. $75 for four, 90-minute sessions

Wednesday evenings: Congas, Beginning to Advanced levels, from 7 to 8:30 pm. $80 for four, 90-minute sessions.

KAYE BOHLER

Great news!!!

I have a new website. Please take a look.

http://www.kayebohler.com/

Check out the four (4) star review from
DOWNBEAT Magazine
Kaye Bohler: Like a Flower (KB Records 2009)

Bohler is a belter who stands firmly in the blues tradition and yet can
turn on a dime into soul sophistication. Here she crosses musical
barriers with a sure sense of pace and fluidity in 10 solid songs that
she wrote about relationships. Attentive to the meaning of the
words she sings, dramatic but not histrionic, this Bay Area dynamo
enjoys the benefit of first-class horn and rhythm sections. Lead
guitarists Danny Caron and Sammy Verela are two veterans who
focus their responsive energy better then guest big shots TommyCastro and Robben Ford. Frank-John Hadley, DownBeat Magazine.

TUESDAY NITES AT PEACHWOODS-
martan

Martan Mann and Friends

This week's Featured Jazz Vocalist:

carmen

This week's Featured Jazz Vocalist:
Carmen Getit

[Note from Martan: Many of you know Carmen as lead singer for Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums. You are absolutely going to have a blast when you come to this show. She is totally dynamic. Don't miss it!]

In Carmen's powerful vocals, one can hear echoes of her idols Ruth Brown, Etta James, and Dinah Washington. Miss Getit is a dynamic performer and versatile vocalist, interpreting "slick jazz a la Dinah Washington" or shouting down-and-out blues according to the Ann Arbor Observer.

Miss Getit got her musical start plucking out melodies on the piano before she learned to read. Piano lessons soon followed, and at age ten Carmen began singing and playing acoustic guitar with a group of girl guitarists at her local church. Over fifteen years later Steve Lucky bought her an electric guitar and turned her on to early blues and jazz. In 1998 she recorded a critically acclaimed release with the Rhumba Bums, "Come Out Swingin'!", earning four stars in both Downbeat and Blues Access Magazines and accolades from the press. Getit is recognized for her more swinging styles in Guitar Player Magazine as "smooth and steady", and her grittier blues playing in Experience Hendrix Magazine, where Frank-John Hadley calls Getit "one of the most striking young blues guitarists in the country".

Carmen has performed and recorded with Elvin Bishop, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, and piano blues legend Pinetop Perkins on his CD "Ladies Man", which was nominated for a Grammy award in 2005 and won the 2005 W.C. Handy award for "Best Traditional Blues Album". She is featured in productions like "Queens of Boogie Woogie", "Women In Blues" and "Divas of the Blues" with other women artists including Lavay Smith, Carol Fran, Wendy DeWitt and Ruth Davies, and is profiled in the All Music Guide's "500 Top Jazz Vocalists" to be released in 2005. Carmen graduated with a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, and received awards as a professional dancer and dance instructor.





Check out our fantastic line-up of jazz vocalists performing each Tuesday with the Martan Mann Trio featuring Dan Robbins, bass, Michael Strunk, drums and Martan on piano: http://www.musicmann.com.

Every week it's a "party on the deck". We would love to see you there :-) (If the weather is chilly - we will move the party inside.)

WED NITES AT CAFE MARE-

==============================

Hi Everyone,

I'm shooting a demonstration video in the Santa Cruz area on either Tuesday, October 18th or Wednesday, October 19th and I'm looking for 15 to 20 people who would like to play drums and percussion instruments in it.

The shoot should take only an hour or two, and will be probably during the afternoon. I'm looking for adults to dress in a corporate "casual Friday" look. It's not necessary to look completely "mainstream" corporate though!

Important: you do not need to be an experienced drummer/percussionist to participate – this is a video demonstrating how people from all walks of life can enjoy drumming together!

I will provide all instruments.
I will also have small percussion instruments to give you to keep for your help and participation!
Let me know asap if you are interested and could be available on either of these dates!

TONITE, Sept 5th, and every Monday-

8-11 pm at the LOFT(2nd floor bar in the historic Catalyst, downtown.)
The Loft has picture windows looking down on the Pacific Mall.
It has a full bar, and comfortable atmosphere (sofas, etc).

This is an exciting new development in the Santa Cruz
jazz scene. A great quartet hosting a weekly jam session
downtown. They call it an 'Old School' jam session because
the band and the players who sit in will not use charts on
the bandstand, -- like in the old days.

Please come by to enjoy the fine music and camaraderie
of these jam sessions, (and a drink or two).

This week's Featured Jazz Vocalist:

sarah

Sayrah Garrison
Sayrah Garrison was raised in a musical household that was almost always filled with magical sounds and creative pleasures. Her parents met on the set of The Pajama Game, where they starred opposite each other, fell in love, and soon thereafter got married. Their love and passion for music was passed on to Sayrah who studied classical piano and sang every chance she got. Somehow along the way, Sayrah uncovered a deep connection to jazz music. Her love and fervor for jazz would earn her a position as the first jazz vocalist in her high school band class. At Mercer University in Macon, Georgia she performed as the vocalist in both the jazz combo and jazz ensemble. Sayrah recently relocated to the bay area from Hawaii where she performed for five years at various conventions, restaurants, lounges and spectacular beaches for weddings and celebrations. Her smooth, soulful voice compliments her wide range of jazz, R&B and popular contemporary songs.

Joe Ferrara will perform and host the third annual Songfest for Prostate Cancer Awareness from 4 to 9 PM on Sunday, September 11th in the Rock Room Lounge at the Shadowbrook Restaurant in Capitola, Ca.

full swing

Headlining this year's event is Full Swing, a four piece band specializing in the standards of great American songwriters like Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and the Gershwins; and legendary artists like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington. Returning from last year are Dale and Marilyn Barcellos, Mark & Debbie Harville, Jeffra, and classical Spanish guitarist Andres Faz. "These are musicians and songwriters of the highest caliber" says Ferrara. "It will be just like the old hootenannies and variety shows."

September is National Prostate Cancer awareness month. "The average woman has a working knowledge of the facts about breast cancer," says Ferrara, "The average man knows almost nothing about prostate cancer. We hope to change that." Information about prostate cancer will be available during the event. Members of the Santa Cruz County Prostate Cancer Support Group will also be in attendance to answer any questions.

Check out the four (4) star review from
DOWNBEAT Magazine
Kaye Bohler: Like a Flower (KB Records 2009)

Bohler is a belter who stands firmly in the blues tradition and yet can
turn on a dime into soul sophistication. Here she crosses musical
barriers with a sure sense of pace and fluidity in 10 solid songs that
she wrote about relationships. Attentive to the meaning of the
words she sings, dramatic but not histrionic, this Bay Area dynamo
enjoys the benefit of first-class horn and rhythm sections. Lead
guitarists Danny Caron and Sammy Verela are two veterans who
focus their responsive energy better then guest big shots TommyCastro and Robben Ford. Frank-John Hadley, DownBeat Magazine.

SATURDAY NITE AT THE CROW'S NEST-
from Jan Hagge jansb3@gmail.com

I did want to reach out and let you know that The Tone Wheels will be at The Crows Nest this coming Saturday night.
Saturday August 20 - show time is 9pm.

This band is particularly unique since we bring a 1963 Hammond Organ / Leslie set up and play the old classics. The musicians are seasoned players who have formed a band starting the beginning of 2011. We are not a jam band, rock or rockin' blues band. We do authentic classics from bands like the Meters, Booker T MG's, Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Richard Groove Holmes, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, James Booker and many many others. The music is danceable all night and crowds have loved us everywhere we have played.

I hope we are not to late for a listing. I'd be glad to answer any questions at any time. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience if you like.

You can hear samples at the facebook site below. (Our website is still in development).

COMING EVENT aUG 25TH AT Kuumbwa

Hi Steve,

My name's Dillon Baiocchi, and I am playing a show at the Kuumbwa on Aug
25th. I am interested in putting an ad in your weekly Jazz Society email
for my show. Here is a brief paragraph about the show as well as a link to
my website. If there is anything else you need, please let me know. I hope
we can fit this into the next email!

Dillon Baiocchi Quintet at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Aug. 25th 7pm. $12/adv
$15/door
Santa Cruz native and Kuumbwa Honor Band Alumni Dillon Baiocchi currently
studies music at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Formed in
2010, the alto saxophonist created his quintet as a means for developing
and performing his original compositions. With a passion for modern jazz,
the quintet is characterized by songs in odd and shifting time signatures,
complex rhythmic grooves, and unusual harmonies. Joining Baiocchi are
Franky Rousseau (guitar), Sammy Bronowski (tenor saxophone) Max Esquivel
(bass) and Douglas Marriner (drums).

Check out the four (4) star review from
DOWNBEAT Magazine
Kaye Bohler: Like a Flower (KB Records 2009)

Bohler is a belter who stands firmly in the blues tradition and yet can
turn on a dime into soul sophistication. Here she crosses musical
barriers with a sure sense of pace and fluidity in 10 solid songs that
she wrote about relationships. Attentive to the meaning of the
words she sings, dramatic but not histrionic, this Bay Area dynamo
enjoys the benefit of first-class horn and rhythm sections. Lead
guitarists Danny Caron and Sammy Verela are two veterans who
focus their responsive energy better then guest big shots TommyCastro and Robben Ford. Frank-John Hadley, DownBeat Magazine.

SATURDAY NITE AT THE CROW'S NEST-
from Jan Hagge jansb3@gmail.com

I did want to reach out and let you know that The Tone Wheels will be at The Crows Nest this coming Saturday night.
Saturday August 20 - show time is 9pm.

This band is particularly unique since we bring a 1963 Hammond Organ / Leslie set up and play the old classics. The musicians are seasoned players who have formed a band starting the beginning of 2011. We are not a jam band, rock or rockin' blues band. We do authentic classics from bands like the Meters, Booker T MG's, Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Richard Groove Holmes, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, James Booker and many many others. The music is danceable all night and crowds have loved us everywhere we have played.

I hope we are not to late for a listing. I'd be glad to answer any questions at any time. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience if you like.

You can hear samples at the facebook site below. (Our website is still in development).

This week's Featured Jazz Vocalist:
gail dobson

Gail Dobson


There are certain analytical standards for technical excellence, like command of the instrument, facile phrasing, inventiveness, presence, and the like. Without these, one would be hard pressed to claim artist stature. But there is another dimension that goes beyond technique, and that is the possession of a unique, instantly identifiable sound, a personal musical trademark so strong as to be recognized in just a few notes. Such an artist is Gail Dobson. Once heard, her voice is forever memorable, like all the greats."
Frank Dorritie.. Producer, Jackie and Roy, Cal Tjader, Smith Dobson, Art Blakey, Kenny Burrell

"She's a beautiful singer, a throaty contralto, with a Lee Wiley timbre...Phil Elwood...SF Chronicle

"Vocalist Gail Dobson's new music covers the whole palate; emotion, musicality, and hipness. You might just be caught in this singer's phenomenal web-I was." ... In Tune Magazine - London, England.


Check out our fantastic line-up of jazz vocalists performing each Tuesday with the Martan Mann Trio featuring Dan Robbins, bass, Olaf Shippiacasse, drums and Martan on piano: http://www.musicmann.com.

Every week it's a "party on the deck". We would love to see you there :-)

Scotts Valley Kiwanis Presents:

“The Kaye Bohler Band” SUNDAY june 26, 5:00 – 7:30pm.
Kaye Bohler Band & Mike Annuzzi
Having performed for 25 years, Kaye Bohler—or, as she is often called, “The White Tina Turner”—has truly fine-tuned her craft, churning out R&B hits and shaking her blonde ringlets like it’s nobody’s business. This weekend, she and her band will kick off the “Music at Skypark” summer concert series, benefiting music programs at local public schools, along with Mike Annuzzi. The latter is a Redwood City native, whose blues-pop has brought down the house at Berkeley’s famed Freight & Salvage, and who will have the crowd swaying in the afternoon sun. Local restaurants and wineries will offer food and beverages, so snag a seat on the grass and enjoy.

   New JazzSociety cd- Santa Cruz Jazz 2011
Hello Santa Cruz people who like jazz-

we are writing to let you know that the Jazz Society of Santa Cruz County is on
the verge of releasing the 5th in our ongoing series of compilation cds that we began
in 2000. This one is Santa Cruz Jazz 2011. It is special in many ways, i would say our best ever.

A few comments on this new cd.
40 bands submitted tracks and we had room for 21.
Three of the tracks feature Jim Baum on drums.
Jim was a top drummer here for decades and died this year.
We are dedicating this CD to Jim. We are also including a track
from trumpeter Bob Smith and his band Take 2. Bob died this year.

jim baum

The youngest band is Barney's (high school), and the oldest is Velzoe (just turned 101).
There's a classic track from Warmth, Don McCaslin's Cooper Square band featuring Jim Lewis on vocals.

Instrumentation is from Big Band down to solo piano.
8 of the tunes have vocals, one in Italian!

There's a great variety of 'feels'- swing, latin, klezmer, hot club, jazz-rock, etc.
4 tunes are original compositions by our local musicians.

Most of these bands have never been on a previous cd in this series.
If you are in a bar or restaurant in 2011 and there's a band playing jazz,
it's a good chance its one of the bands on this album.

The cd is in production and will be available toward the end of March.
There will be a CD release party on a sunday, to be determined, in April.

We would really appreciate it if you would pre-order this cd because
that will enable us to pay for the cost of production withouth tapping the
jazz society's meager resources. How many we order will be influenced by
the amount of pre-orders we get.

You can place an order on line at our donation site-

Donate to the Jazz Society

The cost will be $15. The cds will be available by the end of this month,
and you can pick it up at bocci's or have them mailed to you.

(Since we need more sustaining members, [$10 / month, recurring donation],
we will give a free cd to anyone signing on as a sustaining member).

thank you for your participation in keeping live jazz going in santa cruz.

FROM ROB KLEVAN-
rob@montereyjazzfestival.org>


Hi Everyone,
First, let me wish you a Happy New Year! Secondly, I want to pass on some
information about a free jazz clinic being held at UCSC on Friday, January
14th at 2:00pm in the ensemble rehearsal room (114). Trumpeter Erik Telford
and his Quartet will be covering the following topics:


- Their approach as a group and how the group dynamic is as important as the
individual performance

- The use of color as a musical device

- Erik's approach to composition - since all of the Quartet's music is
original - and how he typically writes for specific musicians' strengths
rather than instruments.

- The use of effects for horn players - both Erik and the sax player use
effects on many of their performances.

- Being an independent musician in today's world and how diversity in the
styles of music one chooses to play is important

- The rhythm section's approach to playing together

And, of course, they will do a performance and answer questions about
anything related to their music and/or specific instrument questions.
Please pass on the information to any students or others who might be
interested in attending (and remind them that there is a $3.00 fee for
parking).

All the best,
Rob Klevan
UCSC Director of Bands
