December 2010 Relief Mission to Haiti

December 2010 Haiti Relief Mission
Thank you in advance for your continued support and prayers and I hope this brief note finds you and yours in the best of health and spirits. The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation with Stepping Together are planning a December Haitian Relief Mission and the dates have been finalized as November 30, 2010 to December 7, 2010! We will again be working with Arch Bishop Joel Jeune, one of the most powerful men in Haiti as head of the Catholic Church, and the people of Haiti that he serves at Grace Village, the compound of his organization Grace International, in the Carrefour district of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the epicenter of the earthquake.

As you know, the Village has become a refuge center, housing almost 30,000 quake victims and the compound is located precisely where the earthquake did the most damage. Most of the homes and neighborhoods surrounding Grace Village have been highly damaged, if not devastated, leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead and injured.

We will be working and living (in guest houses) on site, providing OBGYN care, possibly primary care (depending on staffing), health education and social support including mental health counseling. Our focus for OBGYN will be developing an ongoing clinic as there is a great need for prenatal services.

Supplies Needed for Haitian Mission

The following supplies are urgently needed for the Mission:
1) Portable Ultrasound Machine
2) Fetal Monitor
3) Laboratory Testing Equipment
a) Urinalysis kits
b) Glucometers with strips, lancets, alcohol swabs
c) Hemoglobin/hemotocrit
4) Fetoscopes (50)
5) Medicines: antibioticsanti-diabetics, antihypertensives, hormonal, prenatal vitamins, multivitamins, anesthetics, Insulin,
6) Condoms, contraceptive hormones, IUD
7) Blood pressure cuffs (100)
8) Patient gowns (1,000)
10) Gynecololgy Equipment
a) Speculums (100), assorted sizes
11) Laboratory Equipment: urinalysis, Glucometer (with strips, lancets, alcohol swabs), Hemaglobin/hematocrit, hemocult slides
12) Birth Control Supplies and Medicines: condoms, BCP, IUD, etc.
13) Biopsy equiptment: cervical biopsy, breast biopsy, etc.
14) Colposcopy, cryotherapy, LEEP machine

Also, we are looking for providers who are interested in teaching as this was an urgent request from our hosts but this is dependent on us hiring translators. As such we are looking for Kreyol-speaking nurses and providers to assist us. Currently there is an RN from New York City who is willing to attend however she is in need of financial assistance. This particular RN worked with us on previous mission and her help was invaluable. If you or anyone in your organization can fund her trip costs that would be fantastic.

Other services are dependent on getting sufficient volunteers. So spread the word, this mission is open to all volunteers but our capacity is limited and preference will be given to early responders. If they have not participated on one of our previous missions then they should send their CV and the completed Volunteer Waiver forms as soon as possible. The forms are available upon request.

I want to know if you are interested in participating with the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation and Dr. Kenya Numan with Stepping Together to aid the people of Haiti, and if so, please send me your notice asap. I have attached herein below pictures of Dr. Numan during the Mission to Haiti July 24, 2010 to service the Arch Bishop at the Village and it was a great success for all that lead to this mission!

There is much work to do and the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation with Stepping Together are committed and prepared to work with you and your organizations to raise funds and organize continued relief efforts to provide assistance to countries around the world, especially Africa, the Carribean and South/Central America.

We look forward to your response and “Thank you ALL” in advance.

Respectfully,

Oakland City Administrator to Meet al-Hakim on Fate of City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint

Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindhiem is scheduled to meet with Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim on Monday, September 20, 2010 to discuss the fate of City Attorneys John Russo; Managing Principal Partner of the law firm Meyers Nave Former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; and their respective City Attorney’s Offices in response to al-Hakim’s corruption complaint. This meeting comes on the heels of the Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigning the case to Deputy District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy whom after his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, decided to assign the case for investigation.

al-Hakim has presented uncontested, irrefutable, uncontroverted evidence that the Parties named herein have committed CORRUPTION, COLLUSION, CONSPIRACY, EXTRINSIC FRAUD, FRAUD UPON THE STATE, SUBORNATION AND SOLICITATION OF PERJURIOUS TESTIMONY, PROVIDING LITIGATION CASE FILES AND EVIDENCE TO DEFENDANTS, SPOLIATION OF EVIDENCE, FABRICATING EVIDENCE AND PLANTING FABRICATED EVIDENCE IN LITIGATION CASE FILES , ATTEMPTING TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS LITIGATION THEORY, CALUMNY DECEIT by giving the case files to defendant Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski, and Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening for nearly a year; then clearly constructed fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts; they committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity with this unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files to accommodate the defendants litigation strategy in both the CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case. They have committed criminal violations of the Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the California Cannons strikes at the heart of al-Hakim’s fundamental civil and human rights, and the right to due process under the law guaranteed by the United States Constitution Amendments and the California Constitution. These actions qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh Rights Act, the Ralph Civil Rights Act and the Bane Act, while they are clear crimes of religious bigotry and intolerance, as such, this conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the City Attorney’s Office operates “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime. This deprivation of al-Hakim’s civil, human and due process rights by the law enforcement body of the City Attorneys’ office of Oakland “rise to the level of criminal activity and misconduct” by local and federal law enforcement officials. These criminal actions by Russo and his staff demand they be issued court ordered subpoena to testify.

District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint

After a number of faxes, the filing of a formal complaint against City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010 and several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, he has decided to assign the case for investigation.

One of the areas discussed for investigation is that of jurisdiction since the complaint also involves actions on the part of the D. A., their prior open court admission of fraud injuring al-Hakim and his family in another matter, though they should be able to be separated without consequence or compromise. It is somewhat complicated by the fact that the D. A. feels that the complaint rightfully belongs back with the United States Attorney General Eric Holder, who’s office had it originally under A. G. Alberto Gonzalez. al-Hakim rejected that notion, been there, done that, going back already! al-Hakim opposed that theory as “kicking the can down the road to avoid their responsibility to investigate and prosecute their friends and themselves” because al-Hakim already has that prong in his attack and would not allow the D. A. off the hook that easily with a self-serving excuse. Another D. A. close to al-Hakim separately proposed to have the Grand Jury handle the investigation only to face the same rationale.

As you all know, al-Hakim has harnessed the power of public opinion, has a petition in circulation for President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation to a complaint filed in 2005 with a grass roots movement embraced by thousands demanding a change in the policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play County and Sate Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom the defense admitted in 1998 has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness.

This effort was a major factor in al-Hakim’s recent trials in the County and State Courts and was used to gather reconnaissance against him. This manifested itself as the supreme purveyor of the judicial corruption, perjury, bias, prejudice and ultimate cover-up of these crimes against al-Hakim. al-Hakim has four complaints filed with the Alameda County Presiding Court Judge that have been being investigated for over three years without any response from the court while the judges continue to rule from the bench. What happens when they are found to have committed corruption, corrupt misconduct, gross miscarriages of justice, bias, prejudice, and perjury while serving and they continued to serve while these crimes were being investigated making rulings that they legally and morally where unfit to have made? What happens to all the rulings that they made while under this cloud of veiled crime? What happens to all the parties unjustly tried and cases unjustly settled or disposed of? This fact alone will not only ruin the court system but ruin the eroded confidence of the public in the exposed truly unjust, dishonored judicial system we live today in the City of Oakland, Alameda County and the State of California.

al-Hakim has warned District Attorney Nancy O’Malley that he will not allow any posturing by any political opportunist with this investigation being a cursory one with out any possibility of prosecution of the criminals nor the passing of the buck to the United States Attorney General or Alameda County Grand Jury. O’Malley thinks there’s votes and money in positioning herself as being aggressive on crime in a high profile manner by pursuing this matter on paper for pure electoral reasons! Several of the judges that have clearly committed crimes in this case are directly involved with the Grand Jury. Never the less, al-Hakim insists that the parties engage in the process of investigating themselves as a true measure of transparency, accountability, crime fighting and justice that they all have so faithfully campaigned on!

Far too many instances of foul play on behalf of the City Attorneys, Alameda County District Attorney, Alameda County Superior Court, California Attorney General, California Appeals Court for the governing bodies the complaint was filed with to ignore their dutiful responsibility to investigate and prosecute,

There have been far too many threats and warnings from people in positions of power directly opposed to exposing this complaint and the dastardly crimes contained therein. The cover up has taken on the proportions a movement! There should be no difficulty nor opposition to the investigation and prosecution of the complaint. Now they feel they can’t let al-Hakim prevail because it portrays them in the old axiom of “a group smart people not being able to legally exploit and take advantage of one stupid person!”.

Incredibly, sympathizing politicians are carrying the criminals water without defending it by suggesting that al-Hakim wants them to support his effort. al-Hakim only wants a fair and impartial investigation just as any other citizen off the streets of Oakland just like these very same politicians should! What is so hard to understand about that and just why is that wrong? Why are they being an accessory while aiding and abetting this crime? Where’s this resistance coming from? Who’s really behind it? It reveals the last refuges of scoundrels caught in a scandal! Its a very bad situation made worse by civil conspiracy and cover up for which no apology can mitigate. Russo’s big lie that al-Hakim was the bad guy in an effort to demonize him has fallen miserably on it’s face where his greatest supporters no longer subscribe to that spin and can not overcome al-Hakim’s uncontested, uncontroverted, undeniable, irrefutable evidence that will allow the over $20 million claim to prevail on summary judgment!

The true ethos of this country is not about propagating fear, contempt and hate to veil the concerted attempt to evade investigating and prosecuting your allies at the expense of al-Hakim, his family, business, his community, the people, justice, integrity, the publics confidence… The public is appalled! That is the very defined action of Civil Conspiracy!

Law enforcement and Politicians do not have the right to evade the law because they feel entitled, privileged! They do not have that right and if al-Hakim had done these same things as an African-American and Muslim, he would be held in Guantanamo Bay Prison under secret evidence, tortured underground with air and light pumped down to him once a month!

Based on the current national political environment, the enthusiasm rallied around the politics of fear, the State of the economy, the failure to materialize of a lot of what Russo, et. al. were counting on for legal and political shelter, the disdain for al-Hakim becoming more popular and with the projected trajectory of the legal case with no unexpected intervening events, Russo was in a position to dodge the political death nail!

The public is angry and fed up with corruption and those that feel they are above the law! Polls show 85% of the people do not trust politicians, law enforcement, nor judges! People are frothing at the mouth to use their ballot, their protest, their dollars, their free speech right, free assembly right, their lawmaking right to flush the crooks out of office! They are not dispirited, but energized in attacking those miscreants as these factors and this enthusiasm has shown to be a pivotal, decisive factor at the polls. Many politicians now view Russo as a political liability and have abandoned Russo, et. al., dropping them off their lists of supporters in order to survive! There’s a direct correlation to his decline in popularity with the increase in the call for Russo’s resignation! Russo will have to use his political cache, and adjust his financial resources to fend off his complete demise and hold onto some dignity as he leaves politics, while it is doubtful that he be competitive in this fight for his life that isn’t exactly fair anymore!

al-Hakim has been attacked like the Nazi government and bombed like Pearl Harbor for raising the complaint and refusing to allow those responsible to perform their sworn duties! The responsible parties are taking this opportunity to celebrate their racism with their ignore and delay tactic, which hasn’t slowed down since Judge James Richman began the judicial crime spree, in hopes that it will “go away” or they can pass it on to someone else who can say “no and do nothing!” But they do not have that luxury!

City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave defense strategy of essentially vetoing the complaint with years of confrontation and nothing happening has now dealt the damaging blow of the Cities they consult affected having to find a way to govern with this cloud of municipal legal uncertainty hanging over every decision, legal case, vote, opinion, contract, settlement, and each and every simple everyday task subject to legal reversal! It is a foregoing conclusion that they are out of time and options while facing what is a tidal wave of criticism and a blacklash that shakes and newly shapes the foundation of ALL their legacies.

Russo had a very comfortable position in the drivers seat with the control and close personal contacts he had over the D. A.’s office, County Superior Court, the State Appeals Court, The State Attorney General and the United States Attorney General’s Office. He clearly was confident and sure he was untouchable, as with his Italian mobster heritage he’s so proud of, “the Teflon Don” ! However the failure to materialize of a lot of what Russo, et. al. were counting on for legal and political shelter has brought them ALL under unbearable scrutiny and regulation, some at Russo’s own creation and to his own demise! As any student of civics or law knows corruption and civil conspiracy are crimes and void of any and all presumed entitlements.

This is Part One of a multi part series examining the corruption in the al-Hakim v. Rescue Rooter, et. al.; al-Hakim v. CSAA, et. al. legal cases that includes parts on the Judiciary, Compromising Cover of Law Enforcement, City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, Oakland City Government, and apathetic media bias.

The information below is provided to give you a more complete understanding of the facts in this case and will explain the complaint more fully. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

A & MWF and Stepping Together Help in Haiti, FREE Laser Cartridges

On July 17, 2010 Abdul-Jalil spoke with Lee Variety and the Honorable Johnny Ford, former Mayor for 24 years and member of the State House of Representatives of Tuskegee, Alabama who is the Founder, Secretary General of the World Conference of Mayors (WCM) and The National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM) regarding our working on behalf of the WCM and NCBM to aid the people of Haiti.

The World Conference of Mayors has over 18,000 mayors abroad, establishing partnerships with mayoral associations, presidents and heads of state in Africa, Colombia, China, Haiti, Brazil, Jamaica, Martinique and the Bahamas. The National Conference of Black Mayors assists more than 650 African American Mayors across the United States and the 48 million citizens that they collectively represent. The WCM has established the Haitian Disaster Relief Fund and been awarded Private Volunteer Organization (PVO) status and can now provide USAID assistance to countries around the world, especially Africa, and here in the United States with their own HIV/AIDS Initiative. They also have an affiliation with the National Medical Association and partnered with the Mars Corporation to donate a shipment of Uncle Ben’s Rice to Haitian member mayors’ communities, which in turn fed over 300,000 people in Haiti.
*****

On July 21, 2010 Abdul-Jalil spoke with Lee Variety and Arch Bishop Jeune, the most powerful man in Haiti as head of the Catholic Church, not one of the many alleged corrupt politicians there, regarding his prayer for a miracle to aid the people of Haiti that he serves at Grace Village, the compound of his organization Grace International, in the Carrefour district of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the epicenter of the earthquake. Just three days later, Dr. Kenya Numan and her organization “Stepping Together” was with her crew on the ground in Haiti July 24, 2010 communicating with the Arch Bishop and at the Village by July 26, 2010!

The Village has become a refuge center, housing almost 30,000 quake victims and the compound is located precisely where the earthquake did the most damage. Most of the homes and neighborhoods surrounding Grace Village have been highly damaged, if not devastated, leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead and injured.
*****

On August 12, 2010 Abdul-Jalil received a letter of “Thanks” from the Honorable Johnny Ford acknowledging an eternal debt of gratitude to the Aaron and Margaret Wallace Foundation and Stepping Together for the incredible and expedient work of arranging the Haitian relief effort with Dr. Kenya Numan to Grace Village with the Herculean effort to rearrange the logistics to reroute the mission to the Village for people in such great need! This was a tangible reality of SUCCESS in Haiti for ALL the members of the organizations world-wide rather than the many idle cocktail party rants and raves of projects that exist without any substance behind them. WE DID IT! ALL the members of the World Conference of Mayors can celebrate their success and acknowledge their contribution. You can view and/or download that letter here.

Dr. Kenya Numan gave her assessment of the Haitian Relief Effort to Grace Village as follows:
I want to let you know that I have returned from Haiti. While there I had a very good meeting at Grace International Ministries with Archbishop Jeune et al; this included a tour of their facilities. They are doing great work for the Haitian people and we would like to support them in an ongoing basis.
We are planning to return to Haiti specifically to provide an outpatient OBGYN clinic to the residents of Grace Village as well as Health Education. We are now in the planning process to make this happen successfully.
However while there I was able to assess some of their most urgent needs. Currently their three priorities for the Village are:
1. Tools: construction, cleaning: a sustaining effort so they can keep the village clean and respectable
2. Education & training: a sustainable effort in regards to health, job, etc.
3. Healthcare: a sustaining effort with monthly providers coming on an ongoing basis.
As you can see this will be quite an undertaking but my organization is committed to see this through the next 10-20 years or whatever it takes to get the job done.
I look forward to speaking with you in detail regarding this effort and how best to strategize for support from the USA, Congress, White house, etc. Please let me know what is the best number to reach you.
Peace and blessings,

Kenya
*****

On August 25, 2010 Abdul-Jalil received the letter shown below of “Thanks” from Arch Bishop Joel Jeune of Grace Village in Haiti for the Relief Mission they received from the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation with Stepping Together on behalf of The World Conference of Mayors (WCM) and The National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM). This is a tangible reality of SUCCESS in Haiti for ALL the members of the organizations world-wide rather than the many idle cocktail party rants and raves of projects that exist without any substance behind them. WE DID IT! ALL the members of the World Conference of Mayors can celebrate their success and acknowledge their contribution. Let us get that membership list updated and dispatch the letter to them all to use as a tool for their own marketing, promotional and fundraising efforts.

We are now moving forward in a meaningful way to secure financial, subsistence, construction and medical aid and support for the next mission which will take place as soon as we can unite to raise the necessary items just mentioned. If we can tap into the resources of the USAIDS and the National Medical Association we can make great progress in securing bi-weekly missions to various needed areas around the World! Let us move forward!

We are committed and prepared to work with the WCM and NCBM organizations to raise funds, provide support and organize continued relief efforts for financial donations, to deliver much needed medical support and supplies; food; clothing; educational materials; construction support and building materials; much needed personal items; and legal assistance for displaced children from orphanages that were given transportation and temporary housing in the United States with other families, churches, and organizations until homes have been rebuilt to house them. Where most relief efforts are limited, if not stopped altogether by current travel restrictions in, within, and out of Haiti, The World Conference of Mayors has some political cache that it can exercise to further achieve our united goals globally. This could be the first step toward fulfilling several of our conversations of our organization providing relief support to your efforts globally.

Additionally, in relations to our working together on relief missions here in America and globally, Abdul-Jalil is exploring the possibility of a telethon, perhaps with J. C. Watts Black Television News Channel (BTNC). To that end the WCM is prepared to provide it’s full support to your and our joint efforts to overcome the continual need for financial assistance to achieve our goals. These fundraising efforts include the proposed telethon as a measure to not only raise funds but to raise awareness for the causes as well. Now let us move forward with these joint and several fundraising efforts with a goal of working together on projects of mutual interest and support in a spirit of oneness.

Again, there is much work to do and the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation with Stepping Together are committed and prepared to work with you and your organizations to raise funds and organize continued relief efforts to provide assistance to countries around the world, especially Africa, the Caribbean and South/Central America.

The Soul Supreme Tour feat. Sam Bostic w/special guest Adesha
July 21, 2010

Yoshi’s San Francisco
1330 Fillmore Street
San Francisco, California 94115

Wednesday

9PM Show

The highly anticipated 2010 Soul Supreme Tour will begin its 10-city tour on July 21, 2010 at Yoshi’s San Francisco!

This event premieres performers with strong roots in music and artistry. Sam Bostic’s Soul Supreme released in 2008 with critical success and charted strong on Billboard. Adesha’s album is set to release in Fall 2010 and will celebrate her strength as a singer and songwriter. A special guest is slated to be announced.

Does the name Tracy ring a bell? Maybe Sam Bostic sounds more familiar to you? As the lead singer and founder of the acclaimed `90s Oakland, CA based trio Art `n Soul, he was featured on the Billboard Top 20 hit single “Ever Since You Went Away” (on Big Beat/Atlantic Records). The 2007 Bay Area Music Award winner for (Best Neo Soul Performer) writer/platinum producer and the infamous creator of mob music, he has been at the helm of several Bay Area hip hop tracks including E-40’s hits “Sprinkle Me” and “Dusted & Disgusted” from the platinum “In A Major Way,” “Heavy in the Game” from 2-Pac’s double-platinum selling “Me Against the World” CD, as well as “Come On” from Master P’s multi-platinum “I’m Bout It” soundtrack.

Baptized in the soul of the masters that came before him, Sam is ready to step onto the scene again releasing his solo debut CD, Soul Supreme: The Eclectic Collection, under his independently owned and operated House of Soul Recordings.

While Art N’ Soul is still very much in tact, the group is currently on a temporary hiatus. So Sam has been flexing his solo skills. Just prior to waxing Soul Supreme, Sam landed a slot with his Bluesy/Soulful track “1 More Try” in the 2003 Martin Lawrence film, “National Security.” The song was nicely featured during a scene where Martin was frisking and cuffing a butter scotch toned foxy culprit. And now that his album is complete, Sam has taken his package out on the road to give people a show and win the respect of audiences worldwide.

For more information and song samples, visit www.myspace.com/sambosticworldwide

Special Guest Adesha

Although Adesha Johnson seems relatively new to the music scene, she really isn’t. Adesha was born into a family of entertainers. Both of her parents were entertainers which sparked their want to name their daughter Adesha, which is Sanskrit for “Voice”.

Although she is from the Bay Area, her strong Southern roots are evident in powerful yet sultry delivery as a vocalist and lyrical expertise. In addition to her being a singer, she is acclaimed as a “lyrical genius”. Combing her voice and lyrics with the musical expertise of keyboardist Allen Ross, bassist Aaron Baugh, and drummer Brian Braziel, core members of her band “Seven”, what you get is an awesome musical experience. If you haven’t heard them, you are truly missing out.

Drawing her greatest inspiration from notable artists such as Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder, one can understand where Adesha’s fusion of New Soul originates. When asked about her influences Adesha responds “I want to be responsible for the revival of music with a message. It’s time to infuse people with soul again”.

Recognized as the leading female vocal group by Cuba’s most influential and critical music icons, SEXTO SENTIDO is breathing new life into the international jazz scene. The ladies frequently collaborate with legendary artists such as Chucho Valdés, Pablo Milanés, Silvio Rodriguez. Certified by Valdés as “Creators of the most important vocal-work in Cuba in past three decades. Their ability to dwell inside complex harmonic arrangements transcends Cuba”.

SEXTO SENTIDO recorded their first record “Bossa Cubana” (Elephant Records) after travelling abroad for various cultural events. The project featured a collection of classic Brazilian songs tinged with Cuban elements. Their newest release “MI FEELING” (Ahi Nama) has already achieved strong remarks including Best Vocal Recording at the Cubadisco International Expo and is consistently gaining airplay across jazz radio stations in the NPR/PRI Network. With this release, SEXTO SENTIDO implements their own style and interpretation of the classic works of Cuba’s most respected writers and composers, such as René Touzet, Marta Valdés and Jose Dolores Quiñones.

SEXTO SENTIDO has now become a familiar entity with audiences far outside of Cuba due to frequent appearances on the jazz festival circuit throughout Europe where they became a national sensation in countries like Russia, France, Bulgaria, and Monaco. They’ve experienced increased popularity across Latin America as well at various cultural festivals as ambassadors of traditional Cuban jazz. The ladies of SEXTO SENTIDO have also enjoyed working with contemporary music producers like Guy Sigsworth and Norman Cook (aka Fatboy-Slim). They’ve recorded multiple tracks for film projects produced by the London-based studio NDF International bringing SEXTO SENTIDO’s work into a new medium. As jazz aficionados across North America keep discovering the sultry, sassy yet sophisticated sound of SEXTO SENTIDO, the group is very excited about preparations for their groundbreaking 2010 tour in the US and beyond.

“It must have taken more than one lifetime of music to produce Larry Carlton, he is the sum and son of a long lineage, beyond time, and beyond rational explanations of dedication or practice, the work of his hands speaks grace and passion and timeless knowledge. Listen, learn and be profoundly moved.” ‐ Sting.

“If Royal Scam is the definitive Steely Dan guitar album, then Larry Carlton is the reason why.” ‐ Walter Becker of Steely Dan

There are two reasons why Larry Carlton’s Fire Wire is a rebirth for one of the great guitarists of our time. The first, of course, is Carlton himself. His playing here is more direct, more raw and emotional than anything he’s laid down in recent years. The second reason is his producer, Csaba Petocz.

A veteran producer who has worked on 37 #1 hit songs and 32 platinum albums, Petocz has spent time in the studio with Ted Nugent and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Metallica and Etta James, Elvis Costello and Aaron Neville.

He’s comfortable with hard-core, no-holds-barred, soulful blues and snarling rock & roll. He cut what Rolling Stone would hail as one of the three greatest rock guitar solos of all time (on Steely Dan’s “Kid Charlemagne”), appeared on more than one hundred gold albums, won three Grammy Awards for Best Pop Instrumental Performance (“Theme From Hill Street Blues,” “Minute by Minute,” and “Live in Osaka”), (14 Grammy nominations) and otherwise carved out his space among the world’s great instrumentalists.

Guided by Petocz, Carlton returns to the world of rock and roll with white hot zeal. Fire Wire is not just about great guitar; it is the product of the powerful collaboration of two musical legends.

In his first year since moving to the United States, Alfredo Rodríguez has played to capacity crowds at the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl; the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas; the Detroit Jazz Festival; the Monterey Jazz Festival; the famous Newport Jazz Festival; the San Francisco Jazz Festival, and the Gilmore Keyboard Festival. Both his New York and his Los Angeles debuts sold out. His Miami and Dallas debuts both sold out. Opening for Herbie Hancock and others, Alfredo played for 18,000 fans at the LA Symphony’s official welcome for Gustavo Dudamel at the Hollywood Bowl. He also happens to be working on his debut album with music producer Quincy Jones.

It’s a lot for his first year, but this 24-year-old is definitely not slowing down. Most recently, he co-wrote with Quincy Jones the music for the song “Better City, Better Life” which was chosen to be the Official Theme Song of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

Born in Havana, Cuba, Alfredo trained in the famous Manuel Saumell Classical Music Conservatory until his lucky break came in 2006 when he was selected as one of twelve pianists in the world to play at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival. In Montreux, Alfredo was noticed by legendary music producer Quincy Jones. Just like Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith and the many other enormous talents that Quincy Jones has discovered, Alfredo struck a chord in Quincy and Quincy decided to begin working together with Alfredo.
Alfredo’s debut CD will be released in July of 2010 on Qwest Records and his first European tour will be this Summer. Alfredo’s influences range from Bach, Beethoven, and Stravinsky to Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, and Quincy Jones.

In the words of Quincy Jones, “He is very special and I do not say that easily because I have been surrounded by the best musicians in the world my entire life and he is one of the best.”
