I see that Bruce straightened you out on Charles (Charli) green. He really has the resources to find the truth.
What have you to say now?
We've all heard Brazilian music, right? Bossa nova... Carmen Miranda... Samba? Yes - but the sound behind all of these is "choro," the original Brazilian music.
A catchy, melodic style with kaleidoscopic harmony and counterpoint that make it fascinating to music lovers, choro is the musical melting pot of 19th-century Rio. It is the earthy, sophisticated, humorous, daring, joyous soul of Brazil. It's a living tradition, one currently enjoying a worldwide renaissance.
Memphis has never seen authentic choro played live. We will have our chance Wednesday, July 10, when the Memphis Acoustic Music Association will present one of the finest choro groups in Brazil in a Memphis premiere performance!
Choro das 3 is a Brazilian trio formed in 2003 by 3 sisters, then aged 10-15, from the state of Sao Paulo. Despite their youth, sisters Corina, Lia and Elisa have amassed an amazing number of achievements. They have played for audiences large (over a million) and small, for President Lula da Silva, and for a major Brazilian television show akin to our Late Show with David Letterman. Choro das 3 has garnered numerous national awards in a country that takes its music VERY seriously, performed for audiences in Europe and Japan - and now, they are in the US for their first tour of North America. You don't want to miss them!
In addition to the evening concert, the group will also conduct an afternoon workshop for all acoustic instruments (advance registration required).

Its past time for the boomers to grow up and face the reality of the winter phase of their life and contribute something constructive to society other than their legacy and pastime of debauchery, selfish self indulgence, superficial tree hugging and tofu eating.
They need to stop trying to relive their childhood and face the music of the earth and then either the fire or wind.
Their days of driving their Partridge Family buses have already by passed them a long time ago when they made a left turn at the In A Gadda Da Vida on their way to passing time in Branson.
I wonder why I couldn't find any band charle green played in. He never played with Booker T and the MGs. Nor does he play with EWF. The only charles green I find is in jail for getting jiggy with a 7 year old boy. Is that your friend? Why do you insist on lying? I enjoy checking your facts so I am always going to call you out.
Well, I hope that you enjoyed Earth, Wind and Fire.
Did you know that the leader and principal, Maurice White has Memphis roots? Yes, he lived with his grandmother in Lemoyne Gardens, at the time I lived there, got his musical beginnings at Porter Jr. High School (feeder school right down the street from Booker T. Washington High School,. I played in the school band with him, he was one year, I think ahead of me along with Claudia Barr. Even in Jr High, he was, perhaps the best drummer in Memphis. He moved back to Chicago, after his 10th grade year, to live with his mother. Booker T. Jones of Booker T and the MG's played saxophone, keyboards, trombone, etc., Charles Green played trumpet, he is now head of the horns, dean at the University of Amsterdam and is a world reknown trumpet player, especially in jazz.
Just a few tidbits that you should know.
I'm not sure there's time to get the old booty in full shake mode.
Wait, it's in the suburbs.
Wonderful. Very well organized. I will never forget the smiles on my children's faces.
Noir has never been assisted by color film.
Swedish film has always really needed to watch out about the intentional vomitus factor that it pushes or panders. Take, for instance one swedish film that I can't remember the name of. Therefore, no opportunity for a plug from me: George Cukor.
Because it really was wretched. So, I just forgot it.
However, the storyline started being potentially interesting from a scientific point-of-view because it was not so much esoteric. As it was simply a scripted version of the regularity and perhaps even real-life banality of a swedish gentry family who lived together in the same nice country house.
So, it defaulted itself nicely, I thought. There was the acceptible pre-scription which validated an acceptibility to noir. Therefore, the idea of the acting being good-or-not could be avoided due to the inescapability of script and ensemble.
Then there is just what was going-on in their lives.
Everything going fine for a film enthusiast so far. Then it started trying to make a point.
I was lost as to what it might be leading to. But in the end the grandmother of the house was apparently going to offer herself for destruction too the family because THEY ALL had decided she was of no use at all. So, the last scene involved her offering her body for sexual consumption by her family...and they did.
