For eight years, I’ve traveled to Milford, Connecticut, for Jay Rowe‘s Smooth Jazz for Scholars benefit concert.  This is the first year that has taken place on Easter weekend.  My original plan was to only come to this first night – Friday, April 18.  But when I spoke to Jay between sets at Jeff Kashiwa’s Houndstooth Pub show in February, he convinced me to come to both nights.  I’m glad I did.  I’ll recap the second night in a separate post, but let’s focus on the first night.

The night began just after 8PM with an introduction from Kevin McCabe:
MC41814002a

The first song of the night was by select members of the Foran High School Jazz Ensemble.  Pictures from that song can be found in the set list below.

One year with iPhone April 11, 2014

A year ago yesterday, I boarded the iPhone bandwagon by switching from an LG enV3, which I had for 3 1/2 years, to an iPhone 5.  When I’m not texting or making a phone call, it’s a great alternative for internet access.  My workouts with the Nike Running app have gone further than I was going in my first iPhone post last July.  I’ve gone as far as 5.35 miles in one workout and broke 100 miles for the month of March.

When I need to comparison shop, I use shopping apps.  When I want to listen to the radio, I have the TuneIn app.  I’ve downloaded apps for several networks, network affiliates, and cable channels.

But I still wish the internal hard drive was bigger; maybe with the next iPhone.

Earlier today, MikeChimeri.com reached its biggest viewership milestone yet: 50,000 views!  Thank you to all that have visited the site, since its early days as The Mike Chimeri Blog, for making this milestone possible.

The next milestone post will come at 75,000.  Until then, keep reading for new posts from the world of Mike Chimeri.

2013 in review December 31, 2013

The following is an excerpt of an end-of-year post WordPress created for MikeChimeri.com.  Scroll down for my editorial.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,600 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

2013 was the first full year for the WordPress version of MikeChimeri.com.  April was a transformative month that saw my upgrade from a Nikon D3100 camera to a D5100, and finally join iPhone nation.  I upgraded from an LG enV3 to an Apple iPhone 5.  (I ended up giving my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 to someone very special.)  A week after those two upgrades, I documented the 2013 WCWP Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.  A week after that, I was in Milford, Connecticut, for the first two-night Smooth Jazz for Scholars benefit concert seriesApril also marked five years since The Mike Chimeri Blog was launched; MikeChimeri.com launched in May 2005, seven years before merging with the blog.

In addition to some new contemporary jazz releases, I broadened my musical horizons by adding Return to Forever, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, and various Christmas compilations to my collection.  I posted more expressway and parkway pictures.  I spent most of the summer scanning old 35mm pictures and recording cassettes and microcassettes to one of my hard drives.  I returned to LIU Post and WCWP in October for my annual Homecoming Weekend Show and Homecoming itself.  I attended Charlie Fillizola’s art exhibit at Wantagh Public Library.  And besides SJFS, I attended concerts in August, October, and November.

I didn’t mention this in any post, but there was one dark spot in 2013: the loss of my paternal grandmother, Marilyn “Mazz” Chimeri (née Garing), in early July.  She was the last of my grandparents remaining after I lost my maternal grandparents, Lennie and Arthur Rose, in June and November 2010, and my paternal grandfather, Carmen Chimeri, in December 2011.  I miss them dearly, but feel lucky to have known them for as long as I did.  I love you all.

I hope for the best in 2014, not only for myself, but for each and every one of you visiting this site.  Have a happy and healthy new year.

WCWP Homecoming Weekend show to air October 20 October 7, 2013

I was at WCWP (at LIU Post) on Friday to record my annual Homecoming Weekend radio show.  CJazzPlus with Mike Chimeri will air very early on Sunday, October 20, at 3AM Eastern (midnight Pacific) on 88.1 FM WCWP.

If you are outside of the signal range, you can listen here or browse for it on the TuneIn mobile app.

In the two hours of CJazzPlus, I’ll be playing Chuck Loeb, The Jeff Lorber Fusion, Spyro Gyra, Steve Cole, and much more.  The show took 2 1/2 hours to record and an hour and 15 minutes to edit.  There was also an additional 15 minutes of editing (and one minute of re-recording) for hour 1 at home on Saturday and another 10 minutes of editing for hour 2 yesterday.

I’ll be on campus hours earlier – on Saturday, October 19 – for Post and WCWP’s Homecoming festivities, the latter of which includes the announcement of 2014 inductees to the WCWP Hall of Fame.

Whose Line picked up for another season! August 2, 2013

After only three weeks on the CW, the reboot of Whose Line is it Anyway? has been renewed for another season!  This one will be 24 episodes long.  Jonathan Mangum tweeted the great news on Monday (one day before the airing of an episode he performed in):

Whose Line is it Anyway picked up for 2nd season! Congrats @waynebrady@colinmochrie@aishatyler@1DanPatterson and Ryan [Stiles]!!

When news broke of Whose Line‘s return back in March, I said this:

It’s a 10-episode run, but could be more if renewed or less if canceled.  Based on the failures of the Green Screen Show, Improv-A-Ganza, and Trust Us With Your Life, I’d say the latter is more likely.  But as usual, I’m prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

Consider me pleasantly surprised.  Best wishes to Whose Line, which is thus far thriving in its second life.

Boarding the iPhone bandwagon July 6, 2013

Posted by Mike C. in Internet, Media, News, Personal, Phone, Photography, Radio, Sports, Technology, Travel, TV, Weather.

On an unseasonably hot day in mid-April, I switched from an LG enV3 (VX9200) to an iPhone 5.  Soon after, I bought an Otterbox Defender case for it (which includes a belt clip holster) and a Logitech wireless headset for extended phone calls.

I’ve downloaded 30 apps so far.  Among them are two for radio, nine for sports, three for news, three for weather, and three social media.  I bought two apps: a tip calculator (which was standard on my old phone) and the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

On the first day I had the iPhone, it took a few hours to load all my contacts to iCloud.  But they’re in and some are categorized by ringtone, something I hadn’t done with my previous phones.

The Nike Running app has been instrumental in getting me to run three miles (or more) every day.  Most of the runs have been outdoors, but I ran on my treadmill on a rainy day last month.  And with temperatures now hovering near 90 degrees each day, I may have to do more indoor runs on my treadmill or step machine.

The iPhone’s camera has come in handy when I don’t have my Nikon D5100 on me.  Most of the pictures taken with the phone are of recently replaced Town of Hempstead street signs and new traffic lights.  Some examples:

iPh52313001

iPh62713001

iPh62713002

The one downside is the internal drive is only 13.5 GB (gigabytes) (billed as 16 GB).  It makes me wish there was a microSD slot for an additional 16 GB, or even 32.

Regardless of that, I’m glad I finally boarded the iPhone bandwagon.  I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner.

The end of Manor East June 16, 2013

A piece of my early teens – and my sister’s, as well – is no more.  Thursday, without warning, Manor East in Massapequa closed down (WABC-TV, WNYW-TV, CBSNewYork.com, Bellmore Patch).  The catering hall at the corner of Jerusalem Avenue and North Broadway was home to my Bar Mitzvah reception in November 1994 and my sister’s Bat Mitzvah reception in September 1996 (two months after her birthday).  (Our services were at the now-defunct Union Reform Temple in northwest Freeport.)

I pass by it whenever I take the n55 NICE Bus to Sunrise Mall or on the way to Lumara Salon for my monthly haircut.  I can’t imagine what will take its place.

I feel terrible for those that paid for parties and receptions at Manor East and are left scrambling to find alternate locations.

Here is home video that I shot outside Manor East in February 1995 before going in for my friend Rob’s Bar Mitzvah, three months after mine:

(Sorry about the poor camerawork.)

Expanding my collection May 16, 2013

Posted by Mike C. in Internet, Jazz, Music, Personal, Travel.
1 comment so far

The mental seed for expanding my music collection was planted at the first night of this year’s Smooth Jazz for Scholars benefit concert.  One of the guest musicians that night was wind instrumentalist Nelson Rangell.  He played one song from one of his albums and two covers not on any of his albums.  The first of the two covers was a Return to Forever song called “Spain.”  Nelson’s cover featured guitarist Marc Antoine, who was the first guest introduced that night.  “Spain” was Marc’s fourth song in a row and followed Nelson’s contribution to his cover of “Mas Que Nada” by Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66.

Return to Forever (or RTF) is one of a few bands Chick Corea has led in his long career.  I don’t have any of his solo albums, but I did have all but one by the Elektric Band (plus one Elektric Band II album).

That Friday night at the Parsons Complex, I was unaware “Spain” was an RTF cover.  But the refrain sounded familiar and typical of Chick.  The following morning in my hotel room, I did a Google search for spain jazz song.  The top result was this Wikipedia entry.  So, I listened to a little bit of the song in Spotify.  The mental seed that was planted the night before was starting to grow.

At home a few days later, I looked into the rest of Return to Forever’s works.  Bypassing their eponymous debut album, I liked what I heard on half of Light as a Feather (where “Spain” originated), but I haven’t listened to Flora Purim’s vocal contributions to the other half.  I liked all of Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy, Where Have I Known You Before, No Mystery, and Romantic Warrior.  But I didn’t like Musicmagic because it was all vocals.  So, after a week of deliberation, and purchasing saxophonist Andy Snitzer’s The Rhythm, I bought Light as a Feather as an MP3 download and the four albums that followed it (Hymn, Where Have I, etc.) on CD.  Some songs on those albums were good, but the rest were great, especially if they featured various synthesizers.

I will eventually buy Return to Forever’s recent live album, The Mothership Returns.  The latest incarnation of RTF, after several hiatuses, features 75% of the band during most of its 1970s run (Chick, bass player Stanley Clarke, and drummer Lenny White) plus violinist Jean-Luc Ponty and guitarist Frank Gambale.

While I was waiting for the four RTF CDs to arrive, I remembered that I had a Chick Corea Akoustic Band album – the CD, at least – for six years and never ripped it to my computer.  The CD arrived by accident in a jewel case that had artwork for the Elektric Band’s Beneath the Mask album.  I eventually got that album’s CD, but never listened to the eponymous Chick Corea Akoustic Band CD.  That changed last Thursday.  I liked the jazz standard covers in the first three-fifths of the CD, but loved Chick’s originals that rounded it out.  The Akoustic Band was the Elektric Band without saxophonist Eric Marienthal and the aforementioned Frank Gambale.  That left Chick on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Dave Weckl on drums.  The four Chick originals were “Morning Sprite,” “T.B.C. (Terminal Baggage Claim),” “Circles” (a nod to Chick’s Circle band?), and a new arrangement of “Spain.”  The one I got hooked on was “T.B.C.” because it reminded me of walking through airport terminals, particularly at Tampa International Airport.  And since the album came out in 1989, I harkened back to plane rides I took to Tampa that year, and the joy of seeing my grandparents, who lived 45 minutes away in Crystal Beach, greet me in the terminal and walk with me and my immediate family to baggage claim.  “Many bags look alike,” the baggage claim announcement included.  (The rest of it was something about claim checks.)

As the RTF CDs came in, I also found the GRP All-Star Big Band album that I had been sitting on for just as long as the Akoustic Band album.  That, too, featured a cover of “Spain.”  And when my girlfriend shipped me Brian Simpson’s new album, Just What You Need, and Tom Borton’s 1992 album, The Lost World, I finally listened to the other album of Tom’s that I’ve had for eight years, Dancing with Tigers.  I bought that one after learning excerpts from a few songs were used as Local Forecast music on The Weather Channel in the early ’90s.

As if all of this music wasn’t enough, I decided to give the later albums of Miles Davis a try.  I’ve had downloads of “Tutu” (from the album Tutu) and his cover of “Human Nature” (from You’re Under Arrest) for years, but finally decided to buy Tutu and Amandla.  The latter was Miles’ last album completed in his lifetime.  (He died during the production of Doo-Bop.)  Eventually, I’ll get Aura, You’re Under Arrest, Decoy, Star People, and maybe The Man with the Horn.

In three short weeks, that seed for expanding my music collection has blossomed into an enormous music tree.  One song at one concert led to the purchase of five albums, then discovering two albums I never put on my computer, then buying two more albums, then receiving two more albums from my girlfriend which led me to give an album I hadn’t listened to eons another shot.  Thank you, Nelson Rangell, for planting the seed in my head by covering “Spain.”

Kevin McCabe was the first to speak to the audience just before 8PM:
MC42713003a

As you can see behind Kevin, before Jay and the house band came out, the show began with a performance by the Foran High School Jazz Band, under the direction of Jessica Shearer.  Their song featured a solo by Jay.  Pictures of what was visible can be seen later in this post.

The house band was made up of Jay on keyboards:
