Show Description


“Jenkins will knock you flat….I’ve never been so seduced by music completely new to me yet as embraceable as any from the classic American songbook.”
-Bloomberg News’ Jeremy Gerard


“Mr. Rosen’s earthy, tuneful songs…are notable, a continually shifting musical patchwork of blues, folk, jazz and pop ….As Ms. Jenkins sang in a sweet, sunny voice with an undertone of resolve, a poet in touch with her life force smiled through the music.”
-NY Times, Stephen Holden
 The team of outstanding jazz/pop and Broadway vocalist CAPATHIA JENKINS and award-winning songwriter/guitarist and arranger LOUIS ROSEN returns to the Pub to celebrate the release of their third CD, THE ACHE OF POSSIBILITY (Di-Tone). The new album includes twelve new songs, eight with music and lyrics by Louis, and four with words by their favorite collaborator, the renowned poet Nikki Giovanni. These are songs of love and politics and choices; songs that capture the mood and spirit of this moment—THE ACHE OF POSSIBILITY.

Louis (on guitar) will lead their acclaimed band, which includes Rob Moose on electric guitar and violin; Andrew Sterman, flute, saxophone and clarinet; Richie Vitale on Trumpet and Fluegelhorn; Mark Sherman, vibraphone and percussion; Dave Phillips, bass; Gary Seligson on drums, and Aisha de Haas, background vocals.


The concerts will also feature songs from Capathia and Louis’ first two albums, ONE OUNCE OF TRUTH: The Nikki Giovanni Songs (PS Classics, 2008) and SOUTH SIDE STORIES (RoseCap, 2006).

THE STORY IS OURS. THE PLACE IS AMERICA.
THE TIME IS

AT THE DAWN OF A NEW CENTURY, everything is changing…and anything is possible. Direct from a sold-out extended run at the Kennedy Center, RAGTIME The Musical returns to Broadway in an acclaimed new production as ravishing as it is relevant. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, RAGTIME weaves together three distinctly American tales — that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician — united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Their compelling stories are set to a glorious, Tony Award®-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. Based on the classic E. L. Doctorow novel, RAGTIME also features an extraordinary, Tony Award-winning book by Terrence McNally, direction and choreography by Marcia Milgrom Dodge, a majestic 28-piece orchestra and a vibrant cast of 40.

THE FILM: WAR CHILD
“Left home at the age of seven/one year later I’m carryin’ an Ak-47.” In this documentary we meet hip hop artist Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier in Sudan’s brutal civil war, for whom these lyrics are hardly empty posturing. They are the bitter reality of a young man who was “forced to sin” but determined to “never give up and never give in.
For more information on the film visit: www.warchildmovie.com
THE MUSIC: BAJAH & THE DRY EYE CREW
After packing the national stadium for Hailing from Sierra Leone, this group has generated so much buzz in the hip-hop world that major stars including ?uestlove and Black Thought of the Roots, Talib Kweli, K’Naan, Res, and El-P have contributed their vocal and/or production talents to their upcoming release. After packing the national stadium for performances in their home country of Sierra Leone and contributing music to the Academy Award-nominated film Blood Diamond, African superstars Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew are poised to conquer the global airwaves with their international debut album (due out in fall 2009) and their unique sound, which blends the swagger and funk of hip-hop, the passion and energy of dancehall, and the socially conscious vibe of reggae.

milDRED performs “When She Was King – THE REMIX”
8pm and 10pm shows with Q and A after!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PLEASE COME TO THESE SHOWS THEY ARE BEING TAPED!!!

milDRED, the artist formerly known as DRED performs a particularly mystical form of gender-illusioning, and one woMan show. Her act is less a typical impersonation and more a challenge to societal ideas of what it means to be male or female, while reminding the audience that there’s some of each in everyone. It’s no surprise that DRED’s motto is “Love all of who you are….” The milDRED Love experience is a poetic, funky, fly, supernatural-high, comedic, thought-provoking and musical performance on gender-fluidity, and freedom of expression. From a gender alchemist named NOTTY DRED to a gender bending diva name DREDICIA, get your spirit tickled!!!

at Black Box Theater
308 w 133 St.
Harlem, NY 10030
(above Morning Star Pentecostal Church)
