Medici Musica Productions presents Jorge Arce and Raiz de Plena at THE REGATTABAR at the Charles Hotel (1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA - 617-395-7757) on Thursday, October 17th at 7:30 pm. Jorge Santiago Arce was born in Belgica, a working class neighborhood of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Ponce is a city well known for its rich cultural traditions and is characterized by the emergence and evolution of important Afro-Caribbean music and dances such as the "Bomba," "Plena" and "Danza." Half of Jorge's family comes from San Anton, mainly a black community known for the African tradition of the Bomba music; the other half comes from the music tradition. In addition to being an actor, dancer, singer, and performer, he is also a cultural historian and researcher. Since 1983, it has been Arce's responsibility to expand the Bomba and Plena through workshops, classes, residencies programs and performances at school sites, festivals, parent and community organizations, and universities, thus becoming one of the most important cultural liaisons to the Puerto Rican community in the United States. There is a $15 cover.
TORONTO: GENE DINOVI TRIO AT JAZZ BISTRO
Brooklyn-born pianist, composer and vocalist Gene DiNovi will perform in trio (Gene DiNovi - piano, Andrew Scott - guitar, Clark Johnston - bass) at THE JAZZ BISTRO(251 Victoria Street, Toronto, ONT, CA - 416-363-5299) on Thursday through Saturday, October 17th through 19th at 9:00 pm. DiNovi made his first visit to Toronto as an accompanist to Carmen McRae in 1971, and made his home here the following year. He has reached legendary status on the Canadian jazz scene over the decades since. Although DiNovi has been recording since 1945 as a sideman and/or accompanist to jazz giants including Lester Young, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Charlie Parker, Ben Webster, Peggy Lee, Anita O'Day, Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, Carmen McRae, and Buddy DeFranco, he is likely best known as Lena Horne's accompanist, playing with her for seven years from 1955 to 1963 and occasionally after that. In Toronto, DiNovi has divided his still-thriving career between extended solo piano engagements at several of the city's more exclusive rooms and studio work as an arranger and composer of incidental music, jingles, and film scores. Now past his 80th birthday (2008), DiNovi is one of the few musicians of his generation who is still actively playing and releasing new albums. There is a $20 cover.
