Jill Baker Gower creates jewelry and sculpture informed by her female experience and our consumer culture’s portrayal of women’s needs and desires.

A message from Kirk Whalum, Grammy-winning saxophonist:
"Kafé Kirk, The Series will bring a sophisticated, groovy, jazzy, spiritually uplifting mix of musical excitement to downtown Memphis! On designated first Sundays beginning October 2018, I will invite some of my good friends — many of whom you’re already fans of, some you absolutely will become fans of — to share an intimate evening of music at the exquisite Halloran Centre next to the Orpheum. You’ll also get an exclusive look into what exactly makes these artists who they are and what motivates them. Memphis has never had a series like this!
"If you dig Jonathan Butler or Maysa, Paul Jackson, Jr., or Michael Lington, Lindsey Webster, Euge Groove, John Stoddart, Keiko Matsui, Grace Kelly, Rick Braun, Everette Harp, or you just like discovering awesome new music, you won’t want to miss Kirk Whalum Presents, Kafé Kirk, The Series — Live at the Halloran Centre!"
About Kirk Whalum
Soulful, passionate, stirring...these are the words most often used to describe Kirk’s music. Forged from his Memphis gospel roots and his 1980's initiation into the thriving Houston nightclub scene, Kirk’s big, rich tenor sound is unmistakably his. The 80s were highlighted by Kirk’s stepping out of his blossoming sideman role and forming his own band. It was there that Kirk ultimately developed both his “voice” and songwriting in the crucible of the local club scene — especially at a rooftop club called Cody’s. It was also in Houston where jazz pianist Bob James “discovered” him and brought him on tour, which led to five successful albums with Columbia Records, including Cache, Kirk’s first No. 1 album. Kirk and Bob also received a Grammy nomination for their collaboration album, Joined at the Hip.
After moving to Los Angeles, Kirk became an in-demand session player for top artists like Barbara Streisand, Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross, Larry Carlton, Quincy Jones, and, most notably, Whitney Houston, amongst many others. It’s his sax heard on the mega-hit, “I Will Always Love You.” Kirk soon followed that career high point with his phenomenal hit album released on Warner Bros. Records, For You, perhaps the most successful of over 25 solo recordings to date. Others include his eclectic, and much-lauded, Gospel According to Jazz series, (Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4). In addition to his many solo projects, Kirk was also a member of the popular soul/jazz group, BWB, which features Kirk as the “W” of the group with Rick Braun (trumpet) and Norman Brown (guitar).

With Carter Girl, Carlene Carter once and for all proclaims who she is.
Her first album for Rounder, it features songs spanning the Carter Family generations, including celebrated Carter Family songs like “Gold Watch And Chain,” and others written and performed by the descendants of the original Carter trio — including Carlene herself.
Not that she’s ever shied away from being the heiress to the legacy of country music’s foremost family. “I always include at least one Carter Family song, or one written in the Carter Family spirit,” says Carlene, citing as a pertinent example “Spider Lace,” which appeared on her deeply personal last album, Stronger (2008).
“I wrote it thinking of the Carter Family’s flowery lyrics and romantic themes,” she says, noting, too, that the Carter Family catalog is heavy both on songs of faith and far darker fare. Turning to Carter Girl, she notes that all these facets of the Carter Family’s pioneering work which are reflected in a stunning album achievement that honors her ancestors while confirming her proud place among them.
She is, of course, the daughter of 1950s country superstar Carl Smith and June Carter Cash, who was herself the daughter of Maybelle Carter — “Mother” Maybelle Carter of the original Carter Family trio that formed in 1927 in the tiny Southwest Virginia hamlet of Maces Springs. Along with Mother Maybelle’s brother-in-law, A. P. Carter, and his wife and her cousin Sara, the Carter Family recorded such seminal country music songs as "Can The Circle Be Unbroken (By And By)," "Wildwood Flower" and "Keep On The Sunny Side,” and forever influenced the development of bluegrass, folk, pop, gospel and rock music genres, as well as country music.

Live music performances and a place for local musicians to network. Hosted by the Memphis Music Commission. No cover.
Emmy Award-winning trumpeter, composer, and educator Orbert Davis is co-founder, conductor, and artistic director of Chicago Jazz Philharmonic (CJP), a 55+ piece symphonic jazz orchestra dedicated to bringing together audiences of diverse backgrounds through multi-genre projects. Over the past 30 years, Mr. Davis’ mission-driven career has evolved successfully from ‘making it in the music industry’ to being a true leader in Chicago’s arts and culture community. He is widely respected in not only all things JAZZ, but also for the distinctive ability to use his musical talents to make positive impacts on society through arts education and advocacy.
In 1998 Davis founded "Jazz Alive," the Arts Education outreach arm of Chicago Jazz Philharmonic is an interdisciplinary enrichment program that focuses on teaching life and academic skills through music and the Arts. Currently running in 12 Chicago Public Schools, the program also seeks to create and develop "jazz bands" at the elementary school level. In addition to the music education work that CJP does, Davis also co-owns and operates Discover Music: Discover Life, Inc. a company that develops curriculum and implements programs that use music to teach academic and life skills.
Orbert has many composer commissions to his credit and has played key roles in major film and television projects, including his work as jazz consultant to Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes for the feature film Road to Perdition starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman. Other projects include Home and Away, commissioned by The Boeing Company to honor our U.S. men and women in uniform, and an original score for the Emmy Award-winning national PBS documentary DuSable to Obama: Chicago's Black Metropolis produced by WTTW, where Orbert garnered his Emmy Award for its soundtrack.
Additionally, Orbert was featured in the critically acclaimed documentary "Beauty Rises: Four Lives in the Arts," also produced by WTTW and the Illinois Arts Council, and "Concierto for Generation I", a work commissioned by Nissan/Infiniti, inspired by the 2007 Infiniti G35 Sedan. “Concierto for Generation I” was part of a 2007 “Infiniti In Black” national advertising campaign which included a 2-page full-color ad of Orbert and the G35 Sedan in the Ebony, Vibe, Essence, and Black Enterprise magazines, as well as online video documentary presentations.
