Tribute to Jazz Superstar Benny Golson at Soka Performing Arts Center


Aliso Viejo, CA (PRWEB) November 23, 2013

Soka Performing Arts Center invites you to its Jazz Monsters Benny Golson Tribute, which will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at performingarts.soka.edu or by calling 949-480-4278. Prices range from $ 21 for students and seniors (62+) to $ 28.

Benny Golson TributePart 1 at 3 p.m features Grammy-nominated singer and pianist KARRIN ALLYSON. Audience members and critics alike are marveling at the range of this extraordinary musician. The Houston Press praises, “If there’s a choir in heaven, someday the exquisite vocalist Karrin Allyson will lead it. She’s such an otherworldly talent that the creator probably already has her on heavy rotation. Joining Allyson will be PETER SPRAGUE, DUNCAN MOORE and HAMILTON PRICE. Sprague is a critically acclaimed American jazz guitarist, composer, musical arranger and musical transcriber, sound recording engineer, and music producer from North San Diego County. Moore is a San Diego based drummer and percussionist. Price plays double bass, upright bass, contrabass, string bass, doghouse bass, bass viol and bass fiddle, and has recently performed with Kenny Werner and Geoffrey Keezer.

Following that quartet will be the KENNY BARRON TRIO with KENNY BARRON, BUSTER WILLIAMS and ROY MCCURDY. Barron is a pianist, composer and arranger whose unmatched ability to mesmerize audiences with his elegant playing, sensitive melodies and infectious rhythms is what inspired The Los Angeles Times to name him one of the top jazz pianists in the world and Jazz Weekly to call him the most lyrical piano player of our time. Williams is a prodigious artist whose playing knows no limits. Raised and rigorously trained by his father, a bassist, Buster is best known since the 1980s for his solid, dark tone and highly refined technique on the acoustic bass. Drummer McCurdy will probably always be best-known for his important contributions to Cannonball Adderleys Quintet (1965-1975), but he has been a tasteful and stimulating participant in many other sessions through the years. He is currently Adjunct Professor of Jazz Studies at USC Thornton School of Music.

Benny Golson TributePart 2 at 8 p.m. features two legendary jazz musicians. One of jazzs most valuable sidemen BUSTER WILLIAMS, who also plays in Part 1, reflects, Ive served my apprenticeship under many great masters and feel that it’s my honor and privilege to carry on the lineage that makes this music such an artistically rich art form. BENNIE MAUPIN is a Detroit, Michigan jazz multireedist who performs on various saxophones, flute, and bass clarinet. He is noted for having a harmonically-advanced improvisation style, while having a different sense of melodic direction than other jazz musicians in this genre. As a composer, he has an ability to create brief melodies and song forms that create vast landscapes for improvisation.

Closing the performance will be the star of the evening, the multitalented and internationally famous jazz legend, composer, arranger, lyricist, producer and tenor saxophonist of world note, BENNY GOLSON. Benny is the only living jazz artist to have written eight standards for jazz repertoire. These jazz standards have found their way into countless recordings internationally over the years and are still being recorded. A performer who consistently knocks audiences off their feet, Benny has given hundreds of performances in the USA, Europe, South America, the Far East and Japan for decades. Joining Golson onstage will be KENNY BARRON, BUSTER WILLIAMS, and ROY MCCURDY.

The Ludlow Massacre Memorial, April 20th, 1914, Colorado Coal Miners on Strike

A few nice iron man lyrics images I found:

The Ludlow Massacre Memorial, April 20th, 1914, Colorado Coal Miners on Strike

The Ludlow Massacre Memorial, April 20th, 1914, Colorado Massacre on Coal Miners

A Memorial Desecrated, A Massacre Remembered

"When a scab comes down the street, men turn their backs, angels weep in heaven, and the Devil shuts the gates of Hell to keep him out. … Judas Iscariot was a gentleman compared to a scab. For betraying his master, he had character enough to hang himself. A scab has not." — Jack London.

This picture, touched up, is available on products from posters, cards, postcards, postage stamps, to coffee mugs, stickers, magnets, pins, keychains, mousepads, aprons, and carrying bags found HERE.

Originally published in Mother Earth magazine in May of 1914, in response to the Ludlow massacre. Remember Ludlow by Julia May Courtney

"REMEMBER LUDLOW" the battle cry of the crushed, downtrodden, despised miners stifled at Calumet, in West Virginia, in Cripple Creek, has echoed from coal camp to coal camp in southern Colorado, and has served again to notify the world that Labor will not down.

Peaceful Colorado, slumbering in her eternal sunshine, has been rudely awakened. And her comfortable citizens, tremendously busy with their infinitely important little affairs, have been shocked into a mental state wavering between terror and hysteria. And the terrified and hysterical community, like the individual, has grabbed for safety at the nearest straw. The federal troops are called to the strike zone in the vain hope that their presence would intimidate the striking miners into submission, and the first spasm of the acute attack has subsided. But the end is not yet.

In September the coal miners in the southern Colorado district went out on strike. Immediately the word went forth from No. 26 Broadway, the Rockefeller headquarters in New York City, and the thugs and the gunmen of the Felts-Baldwin agency were shipped from the Virginia and Texas fields and sent by the hundreds, into the coal camps. With their wives and children the miners were evicted from their huts on the company’s ground, and just as the heavy winter of the mountains settled down, the strikers put up their tents and prepare for the long siege. It was then that the puerile, weak kneed Governor Ammons, fawning on the representatives of the coal companies, at the request of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co., called out the militia to "keep order."

And the climax came when the first spring winds blew over the hills and the snows melted from the mountain sides. On the 20th of April the cry was heard "Remember Ludlow!"—the battle cry that every workingman in Colorado and in America will not forget. For on that day the men of the tent colony were shot in the back by soft-nosed bullets, and their women and children were offered in burning sacrifice on the field of Ludlow.

The militia had trained the machine guns on the miners’ tent colony. At a ball game on Sunday between two teams of strikers the militia interfered, preventing the game; the miners resented, and the militia—with a sneer and a laugh—fired the machine guns directly into the tents, knowing at the time that the strikers’ wives and children were in them. Charging the camp, they fired the two largest buildings—the strikers’ stores— and going from tent to tent, poured oil on the flimsy structures, setting fire to them.

From the blazing tents rushed the women and children, only to be beaten back into the fire by the rain of bullets from the militia. The men rushed to the assistance of their families; and as they did so, they were dropped as the whirring messengers of death sped surely to the mark. Louis Tikas, leader of the Greek colony, fell a victim to the mine guards’ fiendishness, being first clubbed, then shot in the back while he was their prisoner. Fifty-two bullets riddled his body.

Into the cellars—the pits of hell under the blazing tents—crept the women and children, less fearful of the smoke and flames than of the nameless horror of spitting bullets. One man counted the bodies of nine children, taken from one ashy pit, their tiny fingers burned away as they held to the edge in their struggle to escape. As the smoke ruins disclosed the charred and suffocated bodies of the victims of the holocaust, thugs in State uniform hacked at the lifeless forms, in some instances nearly cutting off heads and limbs to show their contempt for the strikers.

Fifty-five women and children perished in the fire of the Ludlow tent colony. Relief parties carrying the Red Cross flag were driven back by the gunmen, and for twenty-four hours the bodies lay crisping in the ashes, while rescuers vainly tried to cross the firing line. And the Militiamen and gunmen when the miners petitioned "Czar Chase" and Governor Ammons for the right to erect their homes and live in them.

[Note: part of the text missing here]

for the first time in the history of the labor war in America the people are with the strikers—they glory in their success. The trainmen have refused to carry the militia—entire companies of the National Guard have mutinied—nearly every union in the State has offered funds and support of men and arms to the strikers—and the governor has asked for federal troops.

The federal troops are here—the women who forced the governor to ask for them believe they have secured Peace—but it is a dead hope. For Peace can never be built on the foundation of Greed and Oppression. And the federal troops cannot change the system—only the strikers can do that. And though they may lay down their arms for a time—they will "Remember Ludlow!"

Who is the man I see
Where I’m supposed to be?
I lost my heart, I buried it too deep
Under the iron sea

Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball
Save us all, tell me life is beautiful
Mirror, mirror on the wall

Lines ever more unclear
Not sure I’m even here
The more I look the more I think that I’m
Starting to disappear

Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball
Save us all, tell me life is beautiful
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Oh, crystal ball, hear my song
I’m fading out, everything I know is wrong
So put me where I belong

I don’t know where I am
And I don’t really care
I look myself in the eye
There’s no-one there
I fall upon the earth
I call upon the air
But all I get is the same old vacant stare

Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball
Save us all, tell me life is beautiful
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Oh, crystal ball, hear my song
I’m fading out, everything I know is wrong
So put me where I belong

(Crystal Ball – Keane)

iron man lyrics

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down,
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair Lady.

Build it up with wood and clay,
Wood and clay, wood and clay,
Build it up with wood and clay,
My fair Lady.

Wood and clay will wash away,
Wash away, wash away,
Wood and clay will wash away,
My fair Lady.

Build it up with bricks and mortar,
Bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar,
Build it up with bricks and mortar,
My fair Lady.

Bricks and mortar will not stay,
Will not stay, will not stay,
Bricks and mortar will not stay,
My fair Lady.

Build it up with iron and steel,
Iron and steel, iron and steel,
Build it up with iron and steel,
My fair Lady.

Iron and steel will bend and bow,
Bend and bow, bend and bow,
Iron and steel will bend and bow,
My fair Lady.

Build it up with silver and gold,
Silver and gold, silver and gold,
Build it up with silver and gold,
My fair Lady.

Silver and gold will be stolen away,
Stolen away, stolen away,
Silver and gold will be stolen away,
My fair Lady.

Set a man to watch all nigh,
Watch all night, watch all night,
Set a man to watch all night,
My fair Lady.

Suppose the man should fall asleep,
Fall asleep, fall asleep,
Suppose the man should fall asleep?
My fair Lady.

Give him a pipe to smoke all night,
Smoke all night, smoke all night,
Give him a pipe to smoke all night,
My fair Lady.
