CHARNETT MOFFETT NEW CD: MUSIC FROM OUR SOUL ON MOTEMA RECORDS      Whether as the leader or in a supportive role, Charnett Moffett’s intense and energetic solos inspire audience ovations around the world.  Whether touring with his band or with his show-stopping solo bass project, Solo Bass Works, Charnett’s astounding virtuosity and heartfelt approach to performing have made him a favorite at jazz festivals worldwide. Appearing on over 200 recordings, Charnett Moffett is a veritable bass legend and has one of the most distinguished careers in jazz. "If you were hip to the vastly underrated era of jazz during the late ’80s and early ’90s, you are well aware of the period’s hottest young prospect on the bass in Charnett Moffett, who in the infancy of his career found him blessed with tenures at the side of such giants as Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, McCoy Tyner and Sonny Sharrock."  -  Ron Hart - observer.com (Music From Our Soul chosen as one of 10 best recordings to date in 2017).

The Chevalier Theatre Commission is pleased to present a FREE outdoor summer concert at the Condon Shell along the banks of the Mystic River featuring blues rocker Julie Rhodes and her band. Grab dinner at the Medford Farmer’s Market (located next to the Condon Shell) or bring your own dinner and a blanket or beach chair to enjoy some fantastic live music. Here’s what folks are saying about Julie Rhodes:

“The frenetic energy stills for a minute in the cramped performance space as Rhodes, an unassuming young woman from Somerville Massachusetts, takes her place at the mic, and opens her mouth to release the ghosts of James, Joplin, Winehouse, Fitzgerald, and her own—a legacy in the making.”  – The Huffington Post

“On the cusp of a meteoric rise in the songwriter community, Julie Rhodes is a powerhouse vocalist with authentic soul, grounded both in the songwriting traditions of yesterday’s Americana and today’s very present social and political issues.”  – Howl Magazine

n the tight-knit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t.  If you do, word gets around. And one day, you find yourself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi.  You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row.  And those nominations would be in addition to your seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year.  She also won the Koko Taylor Award, honoring notable female blues artists, in the Blues Music Awards in 2013 and 2015.   [less-]

CHARNETT MOFFETT NEW CD: MUSIC FROM OUR SOUL ON MOTEMA RECORDS      Whether as the leader or in a supportive role, Charnett Moffett’s intense and energetic solos inspire audience ovations around the world.  Whether touring with his band or with his show-stopping solo bass project, Solo Bass Works, Charnett’s astounding virtuosity and heartfelt approach to performing have made him a favorite at jazz festivals worldwide. Appearing on over 200 recordings, Charnett Moffett is a veritable bass legend and has one of the most distinguished careers in jazz. "If you were hip to the vastly underrated era of jazz during the late ’80s and early ’90s, you are well aware of the period’s hottest young prospect on the bass in Charnett Moffett, who in the infancy of his career found him blessed with tenures at the side of such giants as Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, McCoy Tyner and Sonny Sharrock."  -  Ron Hart - observer.com (Music From Our Soul chosen as one of 10 best recordings to date in 2017).

After graduating, Caio moved to Boston in 2011 after receiving a scholarship to attend New England Conservatory, where he studied with several of his musical idols, including Jerry Bergonzi, Brad Shepik, Frank Carlberg, Jason Moran and Miguel Zenon. At NEC, Caio was part of the NEC Jazz Orchestra and shared the stage with jazz greats Dave Holland, Bob Moses, and Fred Hersch.

In 2014, after multiple performance and workshops at the Panama Jazz Festival, Caio was selected to be part of the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program, directed by Jason Moran. That same year Caio recorded his self-titled debut album, featuring exclusively original compositions. “Prebenda”, the opening track was awarded an ASCAP Young Composer Award, and “Dido”, the closing track, was an official finalist in the 2015 Hollywood songwriting competition and won the 2016 Downbeat Award for best composition.

The Chevalier Theatre Commission is pleased to present a FREE outdoor summer concert at the Condon Shell along the banks of the Mystic River featuring blues rocker Julie Rhodes and her band. Grab dinner at the Medford Farmer’s Market (located next to the Condon Shell) or bring your own dinner and a blanket or beach chair to enjoy some fantastic live music. Here’s what folks are saying about Julie Rhodes:

“The frenetic energy stills for a minute in the cramped performance space as Rhodes, an unassuming young woman from Somerville Massachusetts, takes her place at the mic, and opens her mouth to release the ghosts of James, Joplin, Winehouse, Fitzgerald, and her own—a legacy in the making.”  – The Huffington Post

“On the cusp of a meteoric rise in the songwriter community, Julie Rhodes is a powerhouse vocalist with authentic soul, grounded both in the songwriting traditions of yesterday’s Americana and today’s very present social and political issues.”  – Howl Magazine

n the tight-knit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t.  If you do, word gets around. And one day, you find yourself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi.  You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row.  And those nominations would be in addition to your seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year.  She also won the Koko Taylor Award, honoring notable female blues artists, in the Blues Music Awards in 2013 and 2015.   [less-]
