Organizing for Action

In 2013, a group of students on the south side of Chicago asked their classmates to wear orange in memory of a friend whose life had been taken by gun violence.

That single act of remembrance for a friend has grown into a nationwide movement, and on Friday, June 2nd and Saturday, June 3rd, millions of people will wear orange for National Gun Violence Awareness Day.

It's an opportunity to remember those we've lost to acts of gun violence and a moment to come together as we keep up the push for common-sense gun laws that will help put an end to gun violence in this country.

Say you'll attend a Wear Orange event happening in your area -- here are the details:

What: Gun Violence Prevention Event

Where: Brooklyn Bridge
New York, NY 10007

When: Saturday, June 3ʳᵈ
2:00 pm


It's up to all of us to keep fighting for steps forward on this issue. We need to keep speaking out together until Congress takes action.

Millions of people will be doing their part this week -- I hope you can get involved and make it to an event near you.

Tom Zé

June 3 @ 8 pm 

Music legend Tom Zé, the avant garde conscience of Brazil’s 1960s Tropicália movement, presents an evening of samba and bossa nova reimagined as only he can. A dauntless innovator whose records made beguiling experimental bedfellows of rock, folk, electronic music, and found sounds, Zé fell into obscurity until the 90s, when he was rediscovered and signed as the first artist on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. At BAM, he resumes his place in Brazil’s musical firmament, exuberantly channeling the spirit of Salvador and São Paulo with new and old songs alike.
A thinker, an iconoclast, a mad scientist, a snappy pop artisan and one of the most serious jokesters in musical history.”

—The New York Times
“ that is utterly joyous, listenable and often danceable...”
—The Fader
“...a brilliant musician...”

Débora Watts
Record of her new CD

The girl from Saquarema, a small beach town 90 miles north of Rio de Janeiro, Débora Watts, grew up believing she was going to be a scientist. Although she loved dancing and singing, she attended a Chemistry Technical school during her high school years and Pharmacy at the University UFRJ in Rio de Janeiro. After hearing a Brazilian music performance at the club “Cafe Wha?” in 1997, Débora shared with her future husband--the musician John Allen Watts--that her true dream was to be a singer. With John’s encouragement Débora started taking private singing lessons with the Brazilian MPB vocalist Barbara Mendes and with the rock singer Robyn Dawn.

Débora started performing as a solo artist as well as with many Brazilian & Latin bands, performing samba with Pé-de Boi and Saveiro, Latin jazz with Oriente Lopez band, Bossa Nova with Mark Morganelli & The Jazz Forum All-Stars band, Brazilian jazz with Billy Newman’s Brooklyn Brazil Bop Band, to name a few. Brazilian Breeze, a band that Débora started with her husband, John Allen Watts, also received a lot of attention by performing throughout the NYC metro area, including numerous programs on behalf of community arts and cultural organizations at venues such as the Brooklyn Museum and Flushing Town Hall.

In 2013 Débora started composing her own music and in January 2017 she recorded her second CD of all original music. The CD was recorded in Brazil, at the Studio Tenda da Raposa, in the neighborhood of Lapa, Rio de Janeiro.

Débora’s eclectic CD, arranged and produced by John Allen Watts, includes many well-known Brazilian classics such as Inútil Paisagem and Água de Beber and was mixed and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer, David Darlington of Bass Hit Recording (Sting, etc.) More details about the recording can be found in Débora’s blog:

Débora’s first album has been accepted by radio stations domestic and worldwide including Antena 2 in Portugal, Radio Art in Greece, MRS 90,5 FM in Sweden, RTC Cape Verde, as well as WRHU (Jazz Café) and KKUP in the US.

To record her new CD, Debora Watts went straight from New York to the pulsing heart of music in Rio de Janeiro: Lapa.  Débora is looking forward to her CD release party in June of 2017 most likely in the Bohemian neighborhood of Lapa in Rio de Janeiro.

Gilberto is a groundbreaking musician known throughout the world as the father of Bossa Nova. As a young man, Gilberto developed a novel sound, fusing samba, jazz and traditional Brazilian rhythms, carried by skillful guitar technique. After revolutionizing Brazilian music, his sound reached jazz musicians all across the world. His 1964 album with saxophonist Stan Getz, entitled Getz/Gilberto, is one of few jazz albums to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and the first album by a non-American to win a Grammy Award. It is widely considered among the greatest music albums of all time and is particularly known for its song "Garota de Ipanema" ("The Girl from Ipanema"). Gilberto has performed in festivals and concert halls around the world.

On May 21, at the Commencement ceremony for approximately 275 students graduating from NEC's College, the composer and multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal also received a Honorary Doctoral Degree of Music from NEC -New England Conservatory.  Hermeto Pascoal stands out as a particularly distinctive character. Affectionately known as "O Bruxo" (The Sorcerer), the ingenious composer and multi-instrumentalist has cultivated a dazzlingly rich musical universe that draws on folkloric styles like frevo, xaxado and forro, with elements of jazz, rock and other styles of music.

He creates intricate tapestries of sound that hold together with a powerful internal logic. A prodigy on flute and accordion, Hermeto started performing professionally before his teens, playing dances and festivals around his hometown of Arapiraca. Hermeto has made exemplary contributions to the field of music, and the NEC would like to publicly celebrate and recognize the significant role he has played.

Congratulations Ermeto!

About Brazilian Jazz

Jazz, as we have come to know it today, has its roots in many cultures and traditions. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, American Jazz and Brazilian music have had and continue to have a beguiling and lasting influence on each other.

Brazilian Jazz is a style of music born from the fusion between American jazz improvisation and Brazilian rhythms.

Well-known Brazilian music styles such as samba, choro, and American jazz all share the same roots, a mix of African rhythms and European harmonies.

Ben Ratliff journalist, music critic and author of “The New York Times Essential Library: Jazz: A Critic’s Guide to the 100 Most Important Recordings” (2002), makes note of this significance referring to the "lilting New Orleans street rhythm that has ties to Brazilian samba school drumming" in Chapter One - The Original Dixieland Jazz Band "The Creators of Jazz".

But it was not until the Bossa Nova period in the 1960s that the fusion of this music began to take a new transnational style and gain popularity worldwide.

 "The Girl From Ipanema” (Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes) went on to become the second-most recorded popular song in history, behind “Yesterday."

Since then the list of artists that have contributed to this genre of fascinating harmonies, melodies and rhythms have only grown. They include João Gilberto, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Gerry Mulligan, Claudio Roditi, Stan Getz, Sergio Mendes, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Sting, and many others.
