ArtsBrookfield LIVE presents: Ethio-Cali 07’09’14

ArtsBrookfield is an initiative by Brookfield Properties to showcase free cultural experiences in public spaces throughout their properties.  In Los Angeles this effort has taken place in Wells Fargo Plaza with the downtown urban jungle as a background. It was a Wednesday at noon and Ethio Cali, an ethiopian jazz band with California soul, got to woo ArtsBrookfield the audience and people passing by with their authentic tunes.  I commuted to go, I live nearby but not close enough to walk and EthioCali was worth the lunch time session. Their original creations plus covers from Mulato Astake and other Ethiopian jazz masters make this band one of my top choices amongst those building greatness in Los Angeles.  ArtsBrookfield series happens in different locations, very worth checking out, free to attend and you can find their calendar HERE.

Barbara Morrison at Levitt Pavilion Pasadena 06’15’14

Summertime has officially started, and with it FREE summer concerts in Los Angeles.   Levitt Pavilion Pasadena, in addition to being one of the most beautiful spots to enjoy such treats, it also hosts some of the most amazing shows.

The first Levitt Pavilion Pasadena event brought all kinds of crowd who took over the lawn hours before the show even started, eager to see jazz and blues legend and also a favorite in this neighborhood, Barbara Morrison.  Accompanied by a big band, Ms Morrison conducted the evening with grace and wit making the audience dance and sway away with heavy swing and making everybody melt with classic songs like “At Last”.  The Levitts, both Pasadena and McArthur Park have a huge line up with 50 free concerts that have already started calling big crowds.  Check their respective calendars for more free shows ahead and please visit FARAHSTOP the music photography archive for more photos of this gorgeous night.
