Spine Showcases is back for another round of performance in the month of April! With programming curated by Kelley Gant, patrons can expect some of the freshest experiences that the Kansas City jazz scene has to offer.

This evening, the Natalie Bates Quartet will use the American language of music in original works born from a personal place that speak to the universal. Classic jazz-era sounds mix with contemporary compositions for a musical experience that’s as diverse as Kansas City itself.

After the first act, a small ensemble of Spine Showcase performers and special guests will utilize effect pedals, computerized gear, and unexpected instrumentation to create fascinating new sounds in a completely improvised set of music.

The Spine Showcases are FREE and open to the public. Every show takes place at Capsule (located 1664 Broadway Blvd, KCMO). Spine Showcases occur on the third Thursday of every month. Doors open at 7:30 PM and the performance begins at 8:00 PM.

___________________________________________________________________
ARTIST BIOS

Jazz is the native language of the Natalie Bates Quartet - the “Lady Jazz” foursome based in Kansas City. The band was formed as a trio in 2016, when a local club owner approached these women, all seasoned UMKC graduates, identifying a need for female jazz instrumentalists. The band soon after became a quartet, and in 2018, Austin-based Jackie Myers became a permanent addition on keyboard. The group performs regularly at private events and venues such as The Green Lady Lounge, KC Bier Station, and Tom’s Town Distillery. Their repertoire includes popular jazz standards and exciting original compositions. Band leader Bates’ dynamic drumming sets the foundation punctuated by the calculated cool of Carly Atwood’s upright bass. Rhythm and melody are provided by Myers and Aryana Nemati on bari sax. The Natalie Bates Quartet are enthusiastic ambassadors highlighting the opportunities and artistry of the Kansas City jazz tradition.

Kelley Gant oversees programming for Spine Showcases in 2019. She is a KC-based vocalist who is passionate about her musical community. Her creative work includes deep knowledge of vocal tunes within the American Songbook, as well as various looping machines and effect pedals. A talented improvisor, Kelley is adept at using her vocals, whistling, and arsenal of effect pedals to create beautiful music on the fly while working within a traditional jazz ensemble or her small electro/acoustic band.

In addition to performing and writing music, Kelley has worked as an event band producer and producer of one-time performances, working with hundreds of Kansas City’s musicians. Her organizational skills combined with her dedication to imaginative original work give her a unique perspective, which she is using to elevate and promote overlooked talents in Kansas City.

Please join us for a lively discussion with L.A.-based photographer Anthony Hernandez, who will speak about his life and work. Hernandez’s pictures focus on the city’s less glamourous realities: its mundane architecture, auto-centric infrastructure, and the way this design affects the lives of residents. Underscoring his photographs is an abiding concern for issues of race and class, as they both impact, and are shaped by, this urban environment. Offered in connection with the exhibition Anthony Hernandez: L.A. Landscapes.

Habitat loss and poaching in Africa has fueled the rapid decline of wildlife in Africa. The statistics are staggering, and here in the Heartland, it may feel like a distant problem. To help advocate for change, KC based artist Steve Lumpkin created a non-commercial, non-profit project to showcase the success Botswana’s conservation efforts in partnership with the Republic of Botswana.

This exhibit will feature photography, video and audio captured during many trips to remote game reserves in Botswana, Africa. As visitors view the images they will be transported to the Bush with audio recording of the African environment.  Botswana’s semi-desert and grasslands support a wide range of species and it is home to the world’s largest elephant population. Lumpkin captures intimate and exhilarating images of wild animals in their natural habitat.  Elephants, cheetahs, wild dogs, zebras, and antelopes are captured in wild, savage and beautiful moments.  His work also honors the landscape and supports ecotourism.  His goal is to remind the public how important it is to conserve this irreplaceable habitat, protect endangered animals – and what could be lost.

At the opening reception the artist will share three short videos, his knowledge about the animals, and speak about his organization, Endless Treasures of Botswana.

Very excited to present the gorgeous Kol Nidrei by Max Bruch for cello and orchestra with yours truly, Steve Lewis and the Medical Arts Symphony.

Bruch's Kol Nidrei was one of the first pieces he composed when he took up his post as Principal Conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. It was composed for Liverpool’s Jewish community and takes its inspiration from two traditional Hebrew melodies.

The first melody in the opening cello lines originates from the traditional Jewish service on the night of Yom Kippur; second subject of the piece is quoted from the middle section of Isaac Nathan's arrangement of "O Weep for Those that Wept on Babel's Stream", a lyric which was penned by Lord Byron in his collection Hebrew Melodies.

A common misconception about Bruch is that he was a Jewish composer. He was actually a Protestant Christian – but he was greatly inspired by Old Testament stories and by his own modern-day friendships with a number of prominent Jewish musicians. While some commentators have criticized the lack of Jewish sentiment in Bruch's concert-hall Kol Nidrei, Bruch never presumed to write Jewish music. He only wished to incorporate Jewish inspirations into his own compositions.

Aside from the Violin Concerto No. 1, Kol Nidrei is Bruch’s most frequently performed piece. Sumptuous, rich cello writing and the glorious support of the orchestral accompaniment secure this work's place amongst the titans of other great composers.

Spine Showcases is back for another round of performance in the month of April! With programming curated by Kelley Gant, patrons can expect some of the freshest experiences that the Kansas City jazz scene has to offer.

This evening, the Natalie Bates Quartet will use the American language of music in original works born from a personal place that speak to the universal. Classic jazz-era sounds mix with contemporary compositions for a musical experience that’s as diverse as Kansas City itself.

After the first act, a small ensemble of Spine Showcase performers and special guests will utilize effect pedals, computerized gear, and unexpected instrumentation to create fascinating new sounds in a completely improvised set of music.

The Spine Showcases are FREE and open to the public. Every show takes place at Capsule (located 1664 Broadway Blvd, KCMO). Spine Showcases occur on the third Thursday of every month. Doors open at 7:30 PM and the performance begins at 8:00 PM.

___________________________________________________________________
ARTIST BIOS

Jazz is the native language of the Natalie Bates Quartet - the “Lady Jazz” foursome based in Kansas City. The band was formed as a trio in 2016, when a local club owner approached these women, all seasoned UMKC graduates, identifying a need for female jazz instrumentalists. The band soon after became a quartet, and in 2018, Austin-based Jackie Myers became a permanent addition on keyboard. The group performs regularly at private events and venues such as The Green Lady Lounge, KC Bier Station, and Tom’s Town Distillery. Their repertoire includes popular jazz standards and exciting original compositions. Band leader Bates’ dynamic drumming sets the foundation punctuated by the calculated cool of Carly Atwood’s upright bass. Rhythm and melody are provided by Myers and Aryana Nemati on bari sax. The Natalie Bates Quartet are enthusiastic ambassadors highlighting the opportunities and artistry of the Kansas City jazz tradition.

Kelley Gant oversees programming for Spine Showcases in 2019. She is a KC-based vocalist who is passionate about her musical community. Her creative work includes deep knowledge of vocal tunes within the American Songbook, as well as various looping machines and effect pedals. A talented improvisor, Kelley is adept at using her vocals, whistling, and arsenal of effect pedals to create beautiful music on the fly while working within a traditional jazz ensemble or her small electro/acoustic band.

In addition to performing and writing music, Kelley has worked as an event band producer and producer of one-time performances, working with hundreds of Kansas City’s musicians. Her organizational skills combined with her dedication to imaginative original work give her a unique perspective, which she is using to elevate and promote overlooked talents in Kansas City.

Please join us for a lively discussion with L.A.-based photographer Anthony Hernandez, who will speak about his life and work. Hernandez’s pictures focus on the city’s less glamourous realities: its mundane architecture, auto-centric infrastructure, and the way this design affects the lives of residents. Underscoring his photographs is an abiding concern for issues of race and class, as they both impact, and are shaped by, this urban environment. Offered in connection with the exhibition Anthony Hernandez: L.A. Landscapes.

Habitat loss and poaching in Africa has fueled the rapid decline of wildlife in Africa. The statistics are staggering, and here in the Heartland, it may feel like a distant problem. To help advocate for change, KC based artist Steve Lumpkin created a non-commercial, non-profit project to showcase the success Botswana’s conservation efforts in partnership with the Republic of Botswana.

This exhibit will feature photography, video and audio captured during many trips to remote game reserves in Botswana, Africa. As visitors view the images they will be transported to the Bush with audio recording of the African environment.  Botswana’s semi-desert and grasslands support a wide range of species and it is home to the world’s largest elephant population. Lumpkin captures intimate and exhilarating images of wild animals in their natural habitat.  Elephants, cheetahs, wild dogs, zebras, and antelopes are captured in wild, savage and beautiful moments.  His work also honors the landscape and supports ecotourism.  His goal is to remind the public how important it is to conserve this irreplaceable habitat, protect endangered animals – and what could be lost.

At the opening reception the artist will share three short videos, his knowledge about the animals, and speak about his organization, Endless Treasures of Botswana.

Very excited to present the gorgeous Kol Nidrei by Max Bruch for cello and orchestra with yours truly, Steve Lewis and the Medical Arts Symphony.

Bruch's Kol Nidrei was one of the first pieces he composed when he took up his post as Principal Conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. It was composed for Liverpool’s Jewish community and takes its inspiration from two traditional Hebrew melodies.

The first melody in the opening cello lines originates from the traditional Jewish service on the night of Yom Kippur; second subject of the piece is quoted from the middle section of Isaac Nathan's arrangement of "O Weep for Those that Wept on Babel's Stream", a lyric which was penned by Lord Byron in his collection Hebrew Melodies.

A common misconception about Bruch is that he was a Jewish composer. He was actually a Protestant Christian – but he was greatly inspired by Old Testament stories and by his own modern-day friendships with a number of prominent Jewish musicians. While some commentators have criticized the lack of Jewish sentiment in Bruch's concert-hall Kol Nidrei, Bruch never presumed to write Jewish music. He only wished to incorporate Jewish inspirations into his own compositions.

Aside from the Violin Concerto No. 1, Kol Nidrei is Bruch’s most frequently performed piece. Sumptuous, rich cello writing and the glorious support of the orchestral accompaniment secure this work's place amongst the titans of other great composers.
