Mister K Band was our Tuesday Night Jazz Fix

Tuesday, Dec 11, 2018 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM - English

The Mister K Band was our "Tuesday Night Jazz Fix" at the Blue Martini, Kendall, every week (and then the management decided ... to cancel!) but they have lost revenue and their great JAZZ audience who LOVED the Mr. K Band, so they have decided to try ONE MORE TIME! SO LET'S COME OUT AND SUPPORT or they will cancel again!

Mister K's band is Steve Kirkland on sax, Hal Roland on keys, Nicky Orta on bass and Abner Torres on drums! AWESOME!

Lots of free parking, and NO COVER!

Show more >>

The food is great (Happy Hour prices until 8:00 p.m.), the service wonderful, no cover, and the JAZZ IS OUTTA SIGHT!

A few things about Blue Martini. It is a very sophisticated, high-end club with plenty of room, good food, beautiful waitresses, and very nice accommodations. It is a great place to bring a special date or hang out with a group of friends. You can sit in many different areas all with a view of the stage and excellent sound. You can grab a "front row seat" or sit at a distance away where you can listen and talk with your friends. However, please remember that is is a 21 and over club!

One last plea: Let's make it our Tuesday night hang again! See you there!

Handel's Messiah at St. Patrick's

$10 Suggested Donation for Music Student Scholarships

  • Kathryn K. Longo, conductor
  • Juvenal Correa-Salas, harpsichord
  • Maria Paulina-Garcia, chamber organ

The FIU School of Music is bringing a beloved holiday tradition to St. Patrick Catholic Church with a classic performance of Handel’s Messiah. Your favorite holiday tradition will be brought to life with the FIU Concert Choir, soloists, and instrumentalists onstage!Composer George Frideric Handel was born in Germany and began his career as a composer working under the patronage of noblemen. He grew restless from the strict orders that limited his creativity and eventually moved to London where he pushed the boundaries of contemporary opera. After some time, Handel grew weary of the extravagant opera productions and turned his attention to oratorios.

In 1741, Handel composed the entirety of “Messiah” in the fervor of three or four weeks. It was reported that Handel attended a performance of his oratorio every year, the last being only eight days before his death.

She was born in Switzerland, where she received her first two degrees in ‘early music’ (Renaissance/Baroque flute and in harpsichord).

However, her heart belongs to Medieval and Early Renaissance music. Passion for it has brought her to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis from where she graduated with distinction under the guidance of Pierre Hamon and Kathrin Bopp. In 2003, she joined the faculty of Schola’s Department for Medieval and Renaissance Music as a tutor for medieval flutes. She is frequently invited to teach master classes. She is artistic co-director of LA MORRA, Ensemble for Late Medieval and Early Renaissance Music (www.lamorra.info).

In addition to her work with LA MORRA, where she plays early flutes and keyboard instruments (clavicimbalum and clavicytherium), she enjoys performing Baroque and contemporary music and has appeared both as a soloist and with various ensembles (including Jordi Savall’s Hesperion XXI) all over Europe and in Middle East. Apart from the CDs with LA MORRA, she has recorded seventeenth-century music from Lombardy and J. S. Bach’s flute sonatas (with harpsichord player Alena Hönigova), as well as music from fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century German keyboard and lute sources (with Michal Gondko).

Kurt Elling Quintet

Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 7:45 PM - English

"Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz." - The Washington Post

GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling is among the world's foremost jazz vocalists. He won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and was named "Male Singer of the Year" by the Jazz Journalists Association on eight occasions. An international jazz award winner, he has also been GRAMMY nominated a dozen times.

Elling's rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word, and poetry.

An Evening with Raul Midón & the Lionel Loueke Trio

Saturday, Jun 15, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

Genre-bending icons Raul Midón and Lionel Loueke join forces to present a special night of incredible guitar and vocal wizardry. The acclaimed instrumentalists-singers will perform individual sets of original material in an evening that will culminate in an unforgettable jam backed by Loueke's dynamic Gilfema trio (bassist Massimo Biolcati and drummer Ferenc Nemeth).

Raul Midón is celebrated as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. Heralded as a "one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus," (NY Times), Midón has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and even Snoop Dogg. Blind since birth, Midón produced-engineered his Grammy-nominated album, Bad Ass and Blind (Mack Avenue Records), that confronts the challenges of blindness and musical composition.

Lionel Loueke, in part due to his West African roots and world music experience, brings influences to jazz that color his unique phrasing as a guitarist and vocalist. A Herbie Hancock protégé for the past 10 years, Loueke has also recorded and toured with varied instrumentalists and vocalists from far and wide. Praised by Hancock as "a musical painter", Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and unconventional guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative personal sound.

The Forgotten Kingdom: Guy Mendilow Ensemble

Saturday, Nov 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

The Forgotten Kingdom's intertwining music and storytelling conjure voices from Sephardic communities lost to war and upheaval. It's an evocative trek through former Ottoman lands during the turmoil of the 1920's and 30's, during the rise of fascism. Rendering stories and songs of an older age with drama, humor and heart, The Forgotten Kingdom finds highly resonant, deeply moving connections to contemporary struggles, debates, and dilemmas.

The Forgotten Kingdom tells of the ending of an age, one whose passing begins with the traumas of the Great War and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and whose definitive ending is ushered in by WWII. With sand animation, the tale will be told through glimpses and impressions captured in a book of memories found by a daring refugee girl upon her return to her ruined village in 1944. She does not know whose sketches these are. But in the pages she sees her own story, and that of her family. The sketches capture day-to-day life, from the final decades of the 19th century, on through the onset of WWI and ultimately chronicling the disillusion, betrayal and heartache that turned neighbor upon neighbor and covered entire communities with a 'shroud of oblivion' as tens of thousands were deported to camps like Auschwitz.The book is not complete. The show poses a hopeful question: How do you pick up the pieces? The show ends with the girl's determination to continue the story. As she embarks on a new beginning, she adds her own sketches to the book. The Forgotten Kingdom springs from Sephardi women's songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. All music is in the endangered Ladino language, a combination of archaic Spanish with Turkish and Greek. The narration is in English. The show weaves its tale impressionistically, through a series of vignettes with recurring characters and themes. The addition of Kseniya Simonova's captivating, nuanced visual storytelling will enable the show to reverberate on deeper levels.
