At 16 years of age he left the rainforests for Sydney where significantly in his development, he had the opportunity to attend 2 shows a night for nearly a week in front row seats of the touring jazz guitar great George Benson.

Sadao Watanabe Quartet - Blue Note
Through March 24, 2019 - New York

A highly visible and well-regarded musician, Sadao Watanabe has been one of the major influences on jazz in Japan. Since 1969 he has hosted radio programs that introduce his listeners to a range of musical styles. Throughout his 50-year career he has created a substantial collection of music ranging from straightforward bebop to bossa nova. His endorsements for products have made his face as well as his more commercial compositions familiar to the average citizen. He has worked with artists from Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States. When playing his saxophone, Watanabe is uniquely identifiable. Gene Kalbacher wrote in Down Beat, "As a saxist, Watanabe's cachet is melody--simple, catchy melody--purveyed by a semi-sweet alto tonality and a fluid delivery. That he retains this signature sound in settings ranging from jazz-rock fusion to bebop, from samba to reggae, from Mozart to Masai tribal music, testifies to his insistence on authenticity."

Or does her ailing father, with his self-professed powers, and a caretaker with a flair for the dramatic have bigger plans in store? Written by Adam Bertocci Directed by Jennifer Sandella Produced by Random Access Theatre Part of IRT’s 3B Development Series The cast features Anna Cain, Brendan Cataldo, James A Pierce III, Mackenzie Menter, Gabe Templin and Richard Wayne.

Steve Earle Exclusive Vinofile Performance & WFUV Live Broadcast at The Loft - 3/26 - City Winery
March 26, 2019 - 2nd floor New York

If you ever had any doubt about where Steve Earle's musical roots are planted, his new collection, So You Wannabe an Outlaw, makes it perfectly plain. "There's nothing 'retro' about this record," he states, "I'm just acknowledging where I'm coming from." So You Wannabe an Outlaw is the first recording he has made in Austin, Texas. Earle has lived in New York City for the past decade but he acknowledges, "Look, I'm always gonna be a Texan, no matter what I do. And I'm always going to be somebody who learned their craft in Nashville. It's who I am." In the 1970s, artists such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, Billy Joe Shaver and Tompall Glaser gave country music a rock edge, some raw grit and a rebel attitude. People called what these artists created "outlaw music." The results were country's first Platinum-certified records, exciting and fresh stylistic breakthroughs and the attraction of a vast new youth audience to a genre that had previously been by and for adults. In the eighties, The Highwaymen was formed by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings. Their final album "The Road Goes On Forever" released in 1996 began with the Steve E... (read more)

Creating distinctive music that is also enduring and influential has been Chip Taylor's métier over the course of what is closing in on five decades as "one of America's finest songwriters as well as a masterful singer and performer," says Rolling Stone. His two best-known songs are only some of the many pop, rock, country and R&B chart hits he wrote in the 1960s (Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield and Frank Sinatra all recorded his songs).

MOCATalks: The Chinese Must Go with Beth Lew-Williams - Museum of Chinese in America
March 28, 2019 - New York

The American West erupted in anti-Chinese violence in 1885. Following the massacre of Chinese miners in Wyoming Territory, communities throughout California and the Pacific Northwest harassed, assaulted, and expelled thousands of Chinese immigrants. Beth Lew-Williams shows how American immigration policies incited this violence and how the violence, in turn, provoked new exclusionary policies. The Chinese Must Go begins in the 1850s, before federal border control established strict divisions between citizens and aliens. Across decades of felling trees and laying tracks in the American West, Chinese workers faced escalating racial conflict and unrest. In response, Congress passed the Chinese Restriction Act of 1882 and made its first attempt to bar immigrants based on race and class. Beth Lew-Williams is an assistant professor of history and Philip and Beulah Rollins Bicentennial Preceptor at Princeton University. She is a historian of race and migration in the United States, specializing in Asian American history. Her new book, The Chinese Must Go: Violence, Exclusion and the Making of the Alien in America, maps the tangled relationships between local racial violence, federal... (read more)

James Maddock w/ Joy Askew at The Loft - 3/28 - City Winery
March 28, 2019 - 2nd floor New York

The best singer-songwriters serve the song. The songwriter's songwriter, James Maddock, who has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way. But for his latest album, The Green, the songs guided him into recording the most eclectic, exhilaratingly soulful, and imaginatively produced album in his career. "This is my best album. It's an upbeat record with really strong songs and a lot of surprises," the British transplant reveals. "It all happened really naturally. I just listened to where the songs where going and allowed myself the time to give each one a proper sonic home." Since 1999, James Maddock's boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. Relix notes: "James Maddock possesses the kind of lived-in, craggy voice that would sound authoritative if he were singing the sports pages. ... (read more)

Dad In A Box - HERE
Through April 13, 2019 - New York

A Darkly Comedic, Semi-Autobiographical, Multimedia Solo Play. Kim Katzberg returns with her most revealing and hilarious work. A prestigious improv comedy workshop seems like an ideal career boost for Katzberg, until she finds her fervid imagination hamstrung by generic critiques. "...Suicidal girl on a date? I'm not sure it's a network thing.” But the real improvisation starts when Katzberg’s emotionally-distant father dies, paralyzing her psyche and forcing her to confront her California-cool brother and erratic, prodigal sister. Dad in a Box, a darkly comedic, multi-character, semi-autobiographical, multimedia solo play, follows queer theater artist Kim Katzberg as she struggles to gain access to her emotional core, while processing the impending death of her abusive father. The story traces Katzberg’s efforts, through wildly inventive pieces in improv class, to prod and shock herself into facing and confronting her father’s emotional hold on her. WHEN: Friday, March 29 - 7pm Saturday, March 30 - 2pm and 7pm Thursday, April 4 - 7pm Friday, April 5 - 7pm Saturday, April 6 - 7pm Thursday, April 11 - 7pm Friday April 12 - 7pm Saturday April 13 - 2pm and 7pm

Yangtze Rep presents JUNE IS THE FIRST FALL - New Ohio Theatre
Through April 20, 2019 - New York

What compels people to cross mountains and seas to another country, another continent, and another culture to find their true selves? What are the journeys we take to find home and belonging? In Yilong Liu’s play JUNE IS THE FIRST FALL, Don, a gay Chinese man, returns home to Hawaii to rediscover missing memories of himself and his family that he moved away from. His week-long stay opens wounds with his father and sister that never healed, aggravating Don’s struggle to find love and belonging in his life. JUNE IS THE FIRST FALL – the second-prize winner at the 2017 Paula Vogel Playwriting Award, bestowed by the Kennedy Center – looks at sexuality, family, and immigration through a contemporary Chinese lens, yet its themes cross multiple cultural boundaries.
