#1 "COUNTRY" by Cassanova Marcell ft. Trully Polk & New Cupid

Carolyn D. BakerAs the world turns so does the violence, viruses, government destruction, and the list goes on. There are those who try to do their part in correcting the situation with little result and just keep it all in Prayers. As I live in Houston, Texas the fourth largest City in the State and steady growing, along with the problems. To see and live it everyday can bring a person to walk lightly and carry a big stick (gun), just to feel somewhat safe on the street and in our own homes. The problem is worldwide and for the ones out there fighting the battles stay steady and continue the fight, and for those sitting by step up and so show some support for the cause and participate for your community, City and State.

As I mentioned the many organizations out there trying to make a difference, one very important drive has kicked off and it’s all about supplying the children with school supplies and clothing. The organization that organize these drives look for the support from everybody, even if you don’t have school age children, look at it as your investing in the future! This is a time that the national rap artist put on drives that give back, especially in the communities where they grew up, providing live entertainment and family fun time with much success. Giving back to the community they grew up in and beyond. If more people stepped up and donated the results would be felt where it counts.

I admire those that pursue the career and will also support them with opening doors to learn firsthand the business, as I learned back in the day, when times were simpler. The opportunity to work with us is there and if interested contact us for information on how to get involved. - Carolyn D. Baker: Founder / Publisher

Detroit, (January 22, 2020) – Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) Chairman Mark Davidoff and President & CEO Anne Parsons announced today that Italian conductor Jader Bignamini has been appointed Music Director beginning with the 2020-2021 season, details of which the DSO also announced today. The news about the appointment was shared this morning with DSO musicians, staff, and members of the board of directors at the top of the first rehearsal for this weekend’s concerts, which Jader will conduct.

Jader Bignamini was introduced to Detroit audiences when he memorably stepped in for DSO Music Director Laureate Leonard Slatkin to close the 2017-2018 season with concert performances of Puccini’s Turandot. His chemistry with DSO musicians was evident to those who heard or were a part of the performances and knew that they had witnessed something special. That bond between conductor and orchestra was reaffirmed when Jader returned to Detroit this past October for performances of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony.

“There was certainly a feeling of amore a prima vista, meaning ‘love at first sight,’” says Bignamini about those initial performances with the DSO. “It has been such a pleasure and a privilege to discover, in the two years since that first experience, that the connection I felt that day with the extraordinary musicians of the DSO was not just a momentary spark—it is something very real and very exciting. I hope and expect that it will be the inspiration for not just good music, but special music, for many years to come. I also look forward to discovering all that Detroit has to offer. This is such an honor, and I am profoundly grateful to be a part of this iconic institution.”

Jader Bignamini was chosen as the next music director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra following a search by an eight-member search committee comprising DSO musicians, board, and staff.

Mark Davidoff, Chairman of the DSO’s Board of Directors, says that Bignamini’s selection is aligned with the DSO’s longstanding commitment to creating and sharing extraordinary music with the City of Detroit.

“The DSO has long been an institution that not only prides itself on consistent artistic excellence, but also values its role as a cultural cornerstone for Detroit,” says Davidoff. “We hope and expect that music lovers and DSO supporters will agree that Jader is an inspired choice to lead the DSO into an exciting future filled with incredible and memorable musical moments. He understands the power of music to bring people together, inspire them and to lift them up, and we are confident that, in his role as Music Director, Jader will evoke the kind of passion and performances that have made the DSO such an integral part of this community.”

DSO President and CEO Anne Parsons says that Bignamini is the right choice to lead the DSO into the future.

“This is a landmark leadership choice at an auspicious time in our history,” says Parsons. “As we celebrate Orchestra Hall’s centennial throughout this season, we are thrilled to kick off the next 100 years of music-making in Detroit with a music director who combines vision, passion, and musicianship with an infectious personality. Jader both embodies and exudes enthusiasm and authenticity, and he has an inspiring vision for building on the musical legacy of the DSO, this city, and its community. When you make an appointment of this importance, it’s critical to achieve consensus and the alignment around Jader has been overpowering. We know that Detroit will love him, and we can’t wait to introduce him to all!”

Assistant Principal Bass Stephen Molina, who served on the search committee, says, “We are elated to have selected Jader Bignamini to be the next Music Director of the DSO. This is the rewarding culmination of an extensive search to find the new artistic leader of the DSO. Jader’s immediate connection to the musicians was unique, and his dynamic, thoughtful, and inspiring musical gifts bring tremendous enthusiasm to the stage. It’s truly exciting to think about all that we can accomplish together in the future, and we are thrilled to welcome him to Detroit.”

Assistant Principal Flute Sharon Sparrow, an Orchestra Representative on the DSO Board of Directors says, “There has been undeniable chemistry onstage between Jader Bignamini and the musicians of the DSO from the first moment he conducted us in the concert version of Turandot. He immediately captured and has held our respect, attention, and excitement with his selfless dedication to every musical detail and his charismatic personality.

We are thrilled to welcome him as our next Music Director and can promise that everyone in Detroit is in for a spectacular treat.” Jader Bignamini succeeds Leonard Slatkin, who ended his decade-long tenure as DSO Music Director in 2018 and is currently the orchestra’s Music Director Laureate. Previous music directors of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra have included Neeme Järvi (Music Director Emeritus), Antal Dorati, Sixten Ehrling, Paul Paray, and Ossip Gabrilowitsch. See below for a complete list.

This week, audiences in Detroit and around the world will be able to see and hear for themselves the exceptional music-making by the DSO under its newly appointed music director in three concerts at Orchestra Hall, including a Live from Orchestra Hall webcast on Sunday afternoon. Jader will conduct the DSO in Paganini’s virtuosic Violin Concerto No. 1 (with acclaimed soloist Augustin Hadelich) and Berlioz’s vibrant Symphonie fantastique. Tickets are available at dso.org and via the DSO Box Office



The concerts take place Friday, January 24 at 10:45 a.m., Saturday, January 25 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, January 26 at 3 p.m. at Orchestra Hall, within Midtown Detroit’s Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center. The DSO Classical Series is generously sponsored by PVS Chemicals, Inc. The January 25 concert is additionally sponsored by Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss

Sunday’s concert will be webcast for free at dso.org/live and via Facebook Live, as part of the DSO’s groundbreaking Live from Orchestra Hall series. The series is presented by Ford Motor Company Fund and made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

During the 2020-2021 season, which the DSO also announced today, Jader will conduct three weeks of the orchestra’s 20-week Classical Series. He will lead programs featuring Beethoven’s joyous Symphony No. 9 paired with a recent work by Hannah Lash (December 10-13); Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with Midori plus works by Respighi and Veronika Krausas (May 6-9); and Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with Orli Shaham and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 6 (May 21-23). Click here for complete details on the DSO’s 2020-2021 Classical Season.

Jader’s first full season as Music Director will be 2021-2022 when he will conduct 12 weeks in Detroit.

About Jader Bignamini
When Jader Bignamini (Yah-dur Bee-nyah-mee-nee) was nine years old, he became fascinated by the cover of one of his brother’s books. It was a photo of a boy playing what he thought to be a flute, and Jader became determined to play the same instrument. The only problem was that the photo featured a boy playing a clarinet. Jader may not have recognized all the instruments, but that image was the spark that ignited a lifelong love of music and a passion for performing, first as a musician with Orchestra Sinfonica La Verdi in Milan (clarinet, not flute), and later as the group’s resident conductor.

Jader studied at the Piacenza Music Conservatory. He was drawn to operatic arias, captivated by the power and complexity of ­symphonic music in masterpieces by legends like Mahler and Tchaikovsky. For the Crema, Italy native, it was thrilling to explore that complexity, and to puzzle out the role that each instrument played in making that larger-than-life sound. Even as a young musician, the seeds of a future conductor were present. As a teenager, he would “practice” conducting in room at night with a chopstick from a Chinese restaurant. When he conducted his first professional concert at the age of 28, it didn’t feel like a departure, but an arrival.

In the years since, Jader has conducted some of the world’s most acclaimed orchestras in venues across the globe. His 2019-2020 season includes debuts with the Toronto, Houston, and Dallas symphonies; Minnesota Orchestra; Canadian Opera Company conducting Aida; Bayerische Staatsoper conducting La Traviata; and a return engagement with Stadttheater Klagenfurt conducting Eugene Onegin. He continues to tour with soprano Anna Netrebko and tenor Yusif Eyvasov.

Other recent engagements include debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, Vienna State Opera, and Dutch National Opera conducting Madama Butterfly; La Traviata in Tokyo directed by Sofia Coppola; return engagements with Oper Frankfurt conducting La forza del destino and Santa Fe Opera conducting La Bohème; Manon Lescaut at the Bolshoi; Turandot at Teatro Filharmonica; Il Trovatore and Aida at Rome’s Teatro dell’Opera; and La Forza del Destino at the Verdi Festival in Parma. Memorable engagements for Jader have included working with Riccardo Chailly on concerts of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony in 2013 and his concert debut at La Scala in 2015 for the opening season of La Verdi Orchestra.

Jader’s passion and enthusiasm are infectious. And his warmth and joyful spirit animate an engaging personality as prodigious as his musical talent. When Jader leads an orchestra in symphonic repertoire, he conducts without a score, preferring to make direct eye contact with the musicians.

He conducts from the heart, forging a profound connection with his musicians that shines through both onstage and off. He both embodies and exudes the excellence and enthusiasm that has long distinguished the DSO’s artistry.

A jazz aficionado and amateur chef, Jader is excited to immerse himself in Detroit’s rich jazz scene and to explore his new second city with his wife Lidia—also a clarinetist—and their two children, who play trumpet and trombone. But above all, he can’t wait to make more extraordinary music with the DSO musicians he has already established close relationships with. It’s an opportunity that, like the picture on the cover of a book that once caught his attention as a boy, was love at first sight.

About the DSO
The most accessible orchestra on the planet, the acclaimed Detroit Symphony Orchestra is known for trailblazing performances, collaborations with the world’s foremost musical artists, and a deep connection to its city. As a community-supported orchestra, generous giving by individuals and institutions at all levels drives the continued success and growth of the institution. Italian conductor Jader Bignamini was named the DSO’s next music director in January 2020, beginning with the 2020-2021 season. Conductor Leonard Slatkin recently concluded an acclaimed decade-long tenure at the helm and now serves as the DSO’s Music Director Laureate, endowed by the Kresge Foundation. Celebrated conductor, arranger, and trumpeter Jeff Tyzik is the orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, while the outstanding trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard holds the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Jazz Creative Director Chair.

Making its home at historic Orchestra Hall within the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center, the DSO offers a performance schedule that features Classical, PNC Pops, Paradise Jazz, and Young People’s Family Concert series.

Learn more about the centennial at dso.org/centennial.

Cynthia Allen up and close with
“NELLIE TIGER TRAVIS”

C. Allen: Let me start this interview by saying I’m a huge fan and it’s truly an honor and privilege to be speaking with an international legendary female artist and songwriter that I admire and respect. You have many hit songs like “Slap Yo Weave Off”; “Mr. Sexy Man” and “Can I Back It Up” you’ve had such a remarkable career thank you for allowing Jamsource Runway Magazine this wonderful opportunity. Tell your fans a little bit about yourself and how you got started singing.

Nellie: The pleasure is all mine I’m thankful for this opportunity, I was born and raised by my grandmother who as an evangelist in Mound Bayou, Mississippi like most artists I started singing in the church gospel at an early age. In my teens I participated in beauty pageants, and was homecoming queen when I graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1979. During mid 1980's I sung lead for the Mississippi based group "SSIPP", opening for acts from Dionne Warwick to Ray Charles. I’m also an accomplished actress and has performed in the plays "The Lust Of A Man" and "I was There When The Blues Was Red Hot".

C. Allen: You have a very powerful voice and irresistible stage charisma when and what prompted you to want to be a singer? Also, how did you get the nickname “Tiger”?

 



Nellie: I think I was destined because my grandmother was a minister and other family members consisted of singers and musicians. I began singing in church services when I was five years old, I considered a career in acting but my love of music won out. The nickname “Tiger” was given to me by a cousin because she said it described my intense, feline vocal style as well as my feisty and independent personality.

C. Allen: How do you balance your family life and professional career having to be constantly on the road traveling to perform shows?

Nellie: Well for starters I’m not married so I don’t have to answer to anyone and I have three grown sons ages 39, 38 and 24 so they can take care of themselves.

C. Allen: Where are some of the places and who are some of your favorite artists that have inspired you, and that you’ve had the pleasure of touring and performing with?

Nellie: Some of my influences are powerful performers like Tina Turner, Glady Knight, Etta James and KoKo Taylor who was my mentor also I’ve shared the stage with such legendary artists as B.B. King; Buddy Guy, and Bobby Rush. I’ve traveled international performing festivals and clubs around the world places in such as Switzerland, Japan, Greece, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Texas, Mississippi, New York, California, Indiana, Tennessee, Chicago, Michigan and Wisconsin.

C. Allen: What do you consider your greatest musical accomplishment?

Nellie: I’ve been very fortunate and blessed throughout my career I was honored at the 2019 Zydeco Blues Trail Riders Awards and have won numerous awards and received many nominations. In November 2009 I was crowned the “New Queen of The Blues” for Chicago but the ultimate and highlight of my career was in 2017 when I was invited to perform my song “Slap Yo’ Weave Off,” backed by the Roots on the Tonight show hosted Jimmy Fallon on the NBC TV Network.

C. Allen: What do you think are some of the pros and cons of the Southern Soul music industry and do you think it’s changed for the better or worse for artists?

Nellie: I feel some of the pros and cons are that the music business is a male dominated industry therefore I feel female artists does not receive equal pay as some of the male artists. Another problem is that Southern Soul music don’t get enough air play or put into rotation on main stream radio stations, because the industry does not feel that there is a big demand. I feel that’s not true because if our music was given equal amount of air time as the R&B, Pop, Country and Contemporary artists a lot more people would get to know who the artists are and there would be a greater demand. Also, I feel social media has helped because it provides a huge platform for artists to gain massive exposure that they would not ordinarily receive and for the better because more artists are choosing to be independent which allows them to be in more control of their music.

C. Allen: How has the COVID 19 Virus pandemic affected your life and career?

Nellie: It has a financial affect because shows had to be postponed or canceled and rescheduled indefinitely therefore no income coming in and there is still no cure and certainty as to when things will resume back to normal. It’s very frightening because as a performer I come in close contact with a lot of people so from now on extreme precautions will have to be made to ensure my safety as well as others.

C. Allen: What’s the most important things you want people to know about you as an artist?

Nellie: I take my career serious; I give and demand respect; I will always give my fans my very best performance and quality music!! I’d like to thank all the fans, promotors, DJ’s, radio stations and everyone that have supported and believed in Nellie Tiger Travis!!!

C. Allen: I’ve enjoyed this time talking with you, thanks again for allowing Jamsource Runway Magazine and your fans this opportunity to get to know you a little better!!

Nellie: My pleasure and thank you!!

VERA AND JOSEPH DRESNER FOUNDATION GRANTS $1 MILLION TO MOTOWN MUSEUM EXPANSION!

U.S. Representative Karen Bass

Grant announcement kicks off 2020 with continued momentum following a milestone year celebrating 60 years of Motown 60th anniversary

DETROIT, Jan. 9, 2020 —Motown Museum is beginning 2020 on a high note, today announcing a $1 million grant from the West Bloomfield, Michigan-based Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation to further its expansion campaign. Motown Museum Chairwoman and CEO Robin Terry made the announcement.

The foundation is lending support to phase one of the expansion—Hitsville Next—Motown Museum’s creative hub for entrepreneurship designed to offer innovative education and community engagement programs. The programming made possible through Hitsville Next is designed to activate and inspire future generations of creatives, artists and entrepreneurs.

The $1 million grant is the most recent contribution to Motown Museum’s expansion initiative after announcing it had reached a significant halfway funding milestone—$25 million—during the Hitsville Next groundbreaking in September as part of the museum’s Motown 60 Weekend celebration.

“Announcing we achieved halfway to our fundraising goal and the celebration surrounding phase 1 of our expansion groundbreaking was a memorable highlight in a truly historic 2019 for Motown Museum,” Terry said. “As we move in 2020, we are both gratified and inspired to see that the momentum established last year is continuing to fuel exciting new progress and support for the vision of expansion.”

The Dresner Foundation is dedicated to transforming lives in positive ways through grants focused on health, youth and animal welfare. Their mission is to partner with organizations to create opportunities and provide access to underserved youth. The foundation supports youth programs that foster self-empowerment and self-esteem through academic, artistic, personal or social enrichment.

“One of the key pillars of our mission is to help organizations develop and sustain programs that empower children and their families to help them unlock life-changing opportunities,” said Virginia Romano, CEO of Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation. “Hitsville Next is the core of the expansion and home to a creative hub specifically designed to educate, inspire and support promising young artists and entrepreneurs. Vera and Joseph were proud to call Detroit home. We are delighted to continue their legacy by supporting the museum’s innovative work, impactful educational initiatives and community engagement efforts that will continue to help elevate and transform families in our community.”

Already one of Michigan’s leading cultural institutions, the Motown Museum expansion will preserve the inspiration of Motown’s legacy for future generations. It will continue the organization’s goal to elevate the community and provide economic growth and regional enrichment for Detroiters and visitors alike.

“Hitsville Next will offer life-changing programming and opportunities for the next generation of creatives in a state-of-the-art facility,” Terry said. “Our vision for this phase of the expansion is directly aligned with the foundation’s focus on enriching lives through impactful resources that promote a strong sense of well-being in young people. Contributions like this grant from the Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation are cornerstone to bringing our expanded museum to life, and we look forward to building on our fundraising progress in the year ahead.”

Announced in late 2016, the Motown Museum expansion will grow the museum to a 50,000-square-foot world-class entertainment and education tourist destination featuring dynamic, interactive exhibits, a performance theater, recording studios, an expanded retail experience and meeting spaces designed by renown architects and exhibit designers. When completed, the new museum campus will have a transformative impact on the surrounding Detroit neighborhoods, providing employment, sustainability and community pride by serving as an important catalyst for new investment and tourism in the historic area.
