Ernie Krivda :

“No doubt about it, Ernie Krivda is one of the originals of the tenor saxophone” wrote Bill Donaldson for Cadence Magazine about the legendary jazz musician whose 6th decade on the music scene is already filled with a variety of accomplishment. The tenor saxophonist is regarded by critics such as the late Harvey Pekar as “one of the best jazz tenor men in the world”. The composer has written countless compositions in multiple genres. The recording artist has well over thirty albums released on a number of record labels with more on the way. The teacher has former students performing and recording all over the world.
In 2009 Ernie Krivda received the Cleveland Arts Prize award for lifetime achievement in music and the lifetime of achievement continues. Krivda who has recently won the Jazz Legends award from Cleveland’s Tri-C jazz Festival and a CPAC (Community Partnership of Arts and Culture) Fellowship worth twenty thousand dollars, continues with great energy and passion career that spans over 50 years.
“Ernie Krivda almost blew the sun out of the sky…still at the top of his game…” – Detroit Metro Times.

The journey in music that began under his musician father Lou’s influence from almost birth to his tutelage at age 6 has taken him from polka bands in his early teens, classes at The Cleveland Institute of Music, the bands of Cleveland greats Eddie Bachus and Bill DeArango in the jazz clubs of Cleveland, to a life in music that includes the mentorship of Cannonball Adderley, tours with Quincy Jones, performances with musicians such as Ell Fitzgerald, Phil Woods, Sarah Vaughn, Buddy DeFranco, Groove Holmes, Terry Gibbs, John Faddis, The Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra, David Sanborn, Jackie Wilson and concerts with his own groups at Jazz Clubs and Festivals all over the world.
The musical journey goes on with a new recording for Capri Records, “A Bright and Shining Moment,” released in June 2018 and touring that will give audiences an opportunity to hear “The sound that sets him apart” (Applegate Music Review), and the musician that the venerable Jazz Journal (of the UK) calls “both classic and brand new” The Legend Continues.
“[Ernie] brandishes one of the most ravishing and distinctive sounds in music – a vibrant, rawboned tone colored by an impassioned vibrato.”
– David Dupont, One Final Note, Jazz & Improvised Music Webzine

 “Michelle Merlindt was born in a remote region of Australia and spent her childhood on a farm in the bush.  Since then she has lived in eight countries.  Due to her profession as a racehorse veterinarian, she spent thirteen years in Dubai where she first began to write and explore poetry.  Now settled in the Gulf Islands of Canada she continues to pursue spoken word poetry in charming old-fashioned rhyme as a means of storytelling.  Like a little piece of chocolate for the imagination, her poems are meant to delight the listener.  Since she loves history and overlooked fragments of culture, each of her poems, set in a faraway land, is like a magical voyage to another time and place.

At heart I’ve always been a treasure hunter.  I’m always dreaming of finding something rare, even obscure, something long forgotten yet timelessly precious.  I’ve lived all over the world and often the little treasures that seem so exotic to my foreign eyes are second nature, absolutely commonplace and overlooked by those who have always lived among them.  For me, these treasures are not souvenirs to be squeezed into a suitcase but fragments of history, custom and culture.  They are the inspiration for stories of my own.  The Pearl of Dubai, The Lost Library of Alexandria, The Persian Carpet and The Figurine are the best of these.  I hope you enjoy them. https://www.michellemerlindt.com/

Here is the last feature on site: http://worldpoetry.ca/?p=12768 “

What writing does for the soul…

Hopes of comfort and peace are only part of a writer’s goal…
As other benefits are derived if the truth be told.
At times words can be worth more than the value of gold…
When gifting thoughts from your heart for others to hold.

Jeanne Claire Probst.

The Spark That Will Change The World

Painted on Canvas ~ Project Tupac 

By Linda Antognini

 

Linda is an accomplished classically trained artist creating original paintings and custom artworks. Linda, a true student of life and life long artist, studied art and lived in Italy for 10 years. She has been oil painting since childhood, taking her art wherever she goes. Her work reflects her talent and diverse experiences, as she connects each subject designing in both visual and emotional detail. Linda’s creations display passion and expressions, made possible by doing what she loves most, painting. Her works of art can be found throughout the United States and Europe.

     

     Linda’s current efforts are focused on “Project Tupac”, which is a collection of over 21 separate works of art. Project Tupac is designed to emotionally blend Tupac’s lyrical messages with her powerful artistic visual interpretations. Listening to each song while visually focused on the paired canvas, combine to create dynamic experiences that produce emotional responses that are profoundly unique and personal.

 

     “Project Tupac” has set a singular goal of promoting Linda’s work for the benefit of communities across our nation. Employing the fresh idea of blending Tupac’s lyrical messages and the visual canvas interpretation, “Project Tupac” is committed to promote awareness around the common social issues that Tupac Shakur sang so passionately about.

HEAR the ART, SEE the MUSIC, FEEL the MESSAGE!

PROJECT TUPAC will CHANGE the WAY
