From there, he climbed higher and higher in relatively little time with his solo career. Being a regular performer at festivals of jazz around the Indonesia is a proof of his fame as a gatherer of crowd. But more that it has a few standout and talents. Except its unique wide range voice which can go as low as Barry White high momentum as the sound of the Chipmunks, he is also able to imitate the sound of instruments like the trumpet, guitar and drums. He knows how control the scene and love always have fun onstage with spontaneous improvisations and interactions with the group. He conducted the pinned some popular songs outside the fence in its well funny but cool jazz interpretation, it has tons of hits of all his albums. Cool scat singing is also one of its instructional capabilities. Once in ourinterview with a singer named AtiliaMalaysia Tompi said: "it is engineering with terr. Today not many people can scat as it can. "Tompi was spotted very often at primarily of Jazz, but he now has the stage to himself as the special guest for this Sunday.

Standing on two different career might not be easy, but Tompi wants to show that he can do. During his singing career is smooth, he also masters the plastic surgery. We are completely different, but still Tompi sees something in common between them. "The two need artistic touch high", said.

Tommy Smith: Karma - review

Scottish saxophonist Smith, a 1980s teenage prodigy, is today the most respected European musicians jazz - for his mastery of sax, but for its influence on culture jazz of his homeland through the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and its youth wingfounded and still directs. Smith can play tremble full-on post-bop or Explorer North-Euro atmosphere, but it is a powerful fusion album - which seems quite familiar at first, with its hammering backbeats (from the fierce Alyn Cosker), unison slick vocals and keyboard and Headhunters bass guitar effects. But Smith is much too smart to clearly and this set for what he calls his "grunge group" turns out to be a rare splicing of themes to rich tones, like pipes, tenor orchestrated fiercely throat improv, Arabic and Irish musictight grooving which suggests Weather Report or Chris Potter group Undergroundet haunting some atmospherics of his shakuhachi bamboo flute. Compositions of Smith are average before fusion slam-bang usual incursions, and the infamous pensive Star (based on an Irish folk song) is a benefit of great sax-ballad.

This set of same key to Keith Jarrett (thanks to the work of pianist commonly Franz von Chossy) and a variety of classical composers of the 20th century, including Erik Satie, and according to Schumacher, groups of Radiohead via eclectic American composer-performers Bang is on a Can are influences here. Thumbnails short vibes shine, evaporate, construct catches of dry percussion under Bad more resembling ecstatic grooves, dances elegantly classical piano riffs are supported by the rattling of battery and it y aspiration ballad - like episodes in which the patient of the leading solo developmentCareful simultaneous Chossy and some hot low counterpoint like an updated version of the legendary Modern Jazz Quartet. The Groover loop Headspin suggests group hard rock of Neil Cowley, some low stormy bugged crunchings are reminiscent of old is peaked, but resolve in the delicate vibes showers. He composed closely, skilfully elegant music that mixes the abstractions with very accessible - although not always memorable - themes.

New Orleans Jazz Fest visitor complains of arrest to the porte de Gentilly

A woman from California to 64 years who said that she reached in her first new orleans Jazz Fest after a long battle with breast cancer herself in the handcuffs off the reasons fair, arrested on charges of criminal violationresisting an officer and public drunkenness.

jazz_fest_fair_grounds_trash.jpgDavid Grunfeld, The Times-Picayune archiveThe next day of the New Orleans Jazz Fest 2011 has been photographed on May 8.

It is, said laws Shelton, it did not touch a drop in more than a decade and without fighting.

A retirement family therapist, Shelton said that she squawked just when the officer stopped at the door of Gentilly.

"He grabbed my arm and wear me cuffs.". He did not say what it was or why, "she said." "" I've never been arrested in my life. It has never been a reason. ?

Arrest records show that Detective Gus complacency James Shelton April 30 to 5: 45 pm in the block of 1700 of Gentilly Boulevard. His report read in this way: "topic in parking lot during Jazz Fest." Subject has said three times to leave the area, but denied subject, pushing past the agent. Topic had mixed speech with a strong smell of drink alcoholic from his breath and person. ?

Shelton conceded that it did so good air at the time, with poison on his face, an outbreak of gastrointestinal and general fatigue. She says that she has not rebounded yet fully stage the treatment of cancer III in 2008.

"It was all adding them up, ' I want to (stay), but I need a rest."

She said that she walked back and forth to try to find the row for the appropriate shuttle bus and then approached the agent. It does not have much to answer, and then it passes by him, how he cuffed it, she said.

Police does not return a request for comments on what has happened.

Shelton was taken by the Cruiser at the central booking and expected hours with a group of other women who had been arrested, she said. It seems not police conducted a sobriety test. She called a friend lawyer in Lafayette, who concluded an agreement with an attorney of the city early Monday to abandon prosecution incurred if she agrees to waive its payment of bond of $450. Moreover, a judge would set a trial date later.

"Essentially, it has no choice.". It does not pay a ticket back, "said attorney James Barzee Jr."quite frankly, I think it was a way (to the city) to get rid of the case and the binding of money... (The Attorney of the city) never watched it. I do not think he had it even. ?

Barzee said he did not know the Attorney name. Eddie Walters, administrator of the Municipal Court of New Orleans, said that the bond is based on a schedule approved in the Court on the charges at low altitude. Where will go money forfeited to the Shelton was not clear Thursday, but Walters, stated that the deal of forfeiture made seem unusual.

Shelton, said she plans to file a complaint. She said that she gave up alcohol in the 1990s, with coffee and pasta.

"It's so ironic." My friends and my family here may believe, "she said at his home in Grass Valley, California, a small town near the Sierra Nevada.

Arrest of Shelton completed his Jazz Fest. It has blocked to hear some live music and record a change in flight, but his days of New Orleans are exceeded, she said. Before his departure, she visited a Jackson Square tarot card reader.

"She said: ' you be involved in a Court recently?". Well, you will get your money,'"Shelton says. "I thought was funny, because my attorney, said forget it.". We have made the deal. ?
