Special EFX All-Stars

Featuring Chieli Minucci, Eric Marienthal, Karen Briggs, Lao Tizer, Gene Coye, and Ric Fierabracci

 

Saturday, January 5, 2019

 

https://mim.org/events/special-efx-all-stars/

 

Chieli Minucci’s seminal contemporary jazz super group Special EFX marks their

thirty-fifth year of recording and touring in 2018 with the release of Deep as The Night,

their twenty-first studio recording and the first celebrating their recent partnership with

the Trippin ‘N’ Rhythm record label. The group formed in 1982 as the brainchild of guitarist

Chieli Minucci and percussionist George Jinda. The combination of Minucci’s edgy and

melodic, driving style and Jinda’s sense for temperament and rhythm struck a perfect balance,

and the rise of a distinctive new and original sound that incorporated heavy percussive

world elements fused with smart, energetic, playful, and memorable guitar lines was formed.

Potato Hole and his 2011 solo release The Road From Memphis won Grammy Awards for Best Pop

forty years. In 2016, Jones debuted his live show “Booker T  Presents: A Stax Revue,” working with

new talent to create a show that reflects the heart and soul of Stax Records. Jones is currently working

on a new recording project, writing his memoir, and touring worldwide with his solo band.

At the sound of the bell, young Cassius Clay Jr. takes his first step into the ring and starts becoming the man the world would come to know as Muhammad Ali. Before he became one of the world’s greatest boxers and civil rights advocates, he was a 12-year old boy navigating friendships, family and learning to fight for himself and his community in the segregated South of the 50’s.*

As the riots of 1967 escalate tensions, in families and communities, a mysterious woman enters their lives.

Prodigy. Superstar. Activist and Exile. As one of the true divas of the 20th Century, vocal powerhouse Nina Simone defied classification and defined a generation. Four women give us an intimate look at her music and lays bare the rich legacy of this icon. Nina Simone mastered all genres. Her command of the American songbook was legendary! Her interpretations of Broadway classics, rock and roll, soul stirring gospel, jazz and the blues were genius.

[*]  13TH Film: The 13th Amendment                               Now                           

#############################################

13TH is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava DuVernay.

Centered on race in the United States criminal justice system, the film is titled after the Thirteenth

 Amendment to the United States Constitution which theoretically outlawed slavery.

DuVernay's documentary argues that slavery is being perpetuated, however,

through mass incarceration.

 

13TH has garnered acclaim from film critics.

 

The full Thirteenth Amendment reads as follows: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,

except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall

exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
