Bassist Christian McBride is one of those bigger-than-life artists that just burst onto the music scene seemingly in full bloom. His father and great uncle, both well-known Philadelphia bassists, mentored him early. Half of a lifetime ago, by his 21st birthday, he was a remarkably mature player and rapidly becoming everyone's favorite young acoustic bassist of the 1990s. Christian’s huge sound and prodigious technique, both with plucked and bowed solos, recall the legendary Ray Brown and particularly Paul Chambers. He actually started on electric bass when he was eight and took R&B gigs in high school, but by then he was getting more interested in jazz and playing the acoustic bass.

Jazz at MOCA - Anibal Berraute

Friday, Jul 28, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

Anibal Berraute, Argentinean piano player, composer, arranger and producer, fuses tango with elements of other musical forms: the Uruguayan candombe with its African roots and argentinean rhythms, traditional country-folklore sounds, and American jazz among others, to come out with a new vibrant harmonic approach to a genre that in little over a century, transcended its humble beginnings, to reach the whole world and its concert halls to be finally declared “cultural patrimony of humanity” by the United Nations.

Anibal Berraute brings to this project the experience of having been a performing member of some of the best orchestral units of the genre, not to mention his exceptional talent as a composer, arranger, conductor and skills as a producer for some of the leading talents in the music industry.

Anibal Berraute chose for his first Tango Fusion’s recording repertoire, a lesser-known works by Astor Piazzola (the iconic figure responsible for a musical revolution called “New Tango”). “Concierto de Nacar,” is a concert for bandoneon and symphony orchestra done in a special arrangement for his quintet.

Another interesting cut in the recording is a tango version of the American jazz standard “Green Dolphin Street,” in which the members of the group take turns improvising on the main theme, in the spirit of a jazz combo.

With that musical ensemble he recorded two CDs “Cafe Nostalgia LIVE!” and “Te dí la vida entera”, the latter making it to the top of the charts in Paris. In 2000 he led a traditional Cuban music band named “Buenaventura” and in 2001 led his own band. The Miami New Times magazine named him “Best Musical Rejuvenation 2001” considering his sound to be one of “the hottest grooves around.”

Luis Bofill has shared the stage with stars like Ruben Blades, Mark Anthony, Luis Enrique, Bono, Al Dimeola, Olga Guillot, Paquito D’ Rivera and many others. In August 2005 he released a new production called “Costumbres” on the SONY BMG U.S. Latin label. All the compositions on the CD are by the famous Mexican composer Juan Gabriel. The producers were Omar Hernandez and Ricardo Eddy Martinez. He is working on a new project with producers Descemer Bueno and Roberto Carcasses and guests like Kelvis Ochoa and Alkebulan.

Israel Philharmonic Orchestra Zubin Mehta

Sunday, Nov 5, 2017 various times - English

Zubin Mehta and one of Israel’s oldest and most influential cultural institutions return to the Knight Concert Hall for what is sure to be another sold-out, unforgettable concert.

The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) was founded in 1936 by Bronislaw Huberman, and its inaugural concert that year was conducted by Arturo Toscanini. Then, as now, it is the living fulfillment of the Polish Huberman’s dream “to unite the desire of the country for an orchestra with the desire of Jewish musicians for a country.”

Celtic Thunder 2017 Symphony Tour

Tuesday, Nov 14, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

A show rather than a group, Celtic Thunder was conceived by Sharon Browne and written and arranged by Phil Coulter and designed as a contemporary exploration of Celtic music, which means it falls to the pop-dance side of the spectrum more than it does to the traditional side.Celtic Thunder, the singing group from Ireland, perform both solo and ensemble numbers. They debuted in August 2007 at The Helix in Dublin. Accompanied by the Celtic Concert Orchestra under the direction of David Munro, the musical director of the group, Celtic Thunder have become a household name all around the world, with recent ventures into Australia & South Africa. Celtic Thunder live shows are known for dramatic effects via lighting and choreography as well as realistic Irish stage sets with authentic Irish instruments. The performances have dramatic solos, compelling ensembles, and comedic acts.
