CHIKI LORA from SPAIN Rumba from Madrid

"When things are done properly, with love and care for details, they come out well. These are not Chiki Lora's words but are from a critic who attended the reception that was held for the solitary debut of the leader of Canteca de Macao.
Sumando (El Volcán Música) consists - according to the artist - in "a handful of songs that needed to come to light" In this work we can find Chiki's purest essence and the perfect combination of all his musical influences. He presented new songs for the first time last November at 'Café Berlin' Madrid, and the result was that in two days the tickets sold-out and a sign on the poster for the concert read: smash hit.
`Sumando' is a conceptual tour through a collage formed from part of the artist's inner self which has been a bonding nexus and essential figure in the músic institution’s outlook. Now, without the aid of Canteca de Macao and essentially ‘naked’, Chiki has enmeshed himself with the production, fussing over details and has surrounded himself of geniuses; Juanito Makande, El Canijo de Jerez, Javi Cantero, Tomasito, Anita Kuruba, Enriquito Rodriguez, Juanqui Aracil, Fernando Lamadrid, Manu Masaedo.
Sumando, the 8th most important album of 2016, allows us to get a closer look at this multi talented artist who was charmed by salsa music a long time ago,who let himself go to Pata Negra's funky rumba, who drank from the flamenco fountain and splashed us all with his Rock'n'Roll soul. We don’t see this fusión anymore. The real thing. Chiki is the real thing and that is what he wants to offer us now, his latest solo adventure.. Sumando, is just a beginning: a musical trip where there is room for love, for humour, dance, and to sit and listen to…enjoy!
This "Sumando 2018" tour that started on March 2 in Valencia, has led him to tour the entire Spanish territory, with concerts at festivals such as Primavera Trompetera, as well as five dates in Cuba, one in Hungary, one in Slovenia and three in the US, "Sumando" a total of 51 concerts."

Lynne Arriale

Lynne Arriale

Nov 17, 7:30pm - Nov 17, 11:30pm

Cafe CODA
1224 Williamson st.
Madison, WI  53703 Map

Lynne Arriale's music lies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She is one of jazzdom's most intensely unique voices. – JazzTimes

The poet laureate of her generation -- Jazz Police

Pianist/composer Lynne Arriale's career is graced by a love of melody and a joy of musical discovery. Arriale has performed on international concert and festival stages over the past 25 years. The consummate storyteller, she immediately connects with her listeners. JazzTimes wrote, "She achieves a special, deep connection with her audience, and the energy flows both ways. Arriale's emotional authenticity allows her audience to feel and think along with her."
At the core of Arriale's appeal is her ability to communicate with her band and listeners. "The poet laureate of her generation" (Jazz Police), her performances and recordings with her trio have led to comparisons with the great trios of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, yet she has been consistently praised as having a "singular voice" as a pianist, leader, composer, and arranger. "I really can't compare her to anyone," said recent collaborator and multi-Grammy winner Randy Brecker. "Her music transcends the word 'jazz' - it is just pure music."

Arriale was the first prize winner of the 1993 International Great American Jazz Piano Competition, and soon launched her touring and recording career. Her 14 CDs as a leader have topped the Jazzweek Radio Charts.

She was selected to substitute for Marian McPartland with the 100 Golden Fingers tour of Japan with iconic jazz pianists Tommy Flanagan, Hank Jones, Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton, Kenny Barron, Harold Mabern, Roger Kellaway, Junior Mance and Ray Bryant. Arriale has performed and/or recorded with jazz icons Randy Brecker, George Mraz, Benny Golson, Rufus Reid and Marian McPartland, to name a few.

The world's great jazz festivals and concert stages have invited Lynne to perform, including five performances at the Kennedy Center and additional performances at Lincoln Center, Montreux, Burghausen, Gilmore, Spoleto Arts, Montreal, Monterey, North Sea, Stuttgart, Pori, San Francisco, Ottawa, Zagreb, Perth, Brisbane, Rouen, Cannes MIDEM, Sardinia, Rochester, Wigan, Poznan, Estoril, Palermo, Inverness, Cork and San Javier.
