April 18 - Playlist Spotlight

His name is David Ornette Cherry and what a joyful kaleidoscope of sound he and his band members, Organic Roots, created at Jimmy Maks on Thursday, April 16.  Not only was David celebrating his birthday, which was on April 13, but he was celebrating the release of his latest CD Organic Journey, making it the fifth and final CD in the "Organic" series.

The blend of music was filled with worldy sounds with one band member playing the accordian while another played the electronic soundscape.  That's actually nothing when you learn about the many instruments David plays: piano, spirit flute, dousn ' gounni, melodica and oh ya, don't forgot the computer, a MAC was sitting on top of the piano.  Yes, if you know how to produce music then you know the right computerized tool to use is a MAC.

Oregonians speak out about the arts

Every year, Oregon artists, institutions, and organizations receive millions of dollars in funding from regional, state and federal government-sponsored agencies. For example, this past fiscal year the Regional Arts and Culture Council gave out over two million dollars in grants and support. Not a lot of money, but maybe enough to get some artists and organizations through what will certainly be a difficult year.

But what are these artists and organizations giving back to the community and why do we continue to fund the arts when there are so many other places that money could go? With these questions in mind, Frank Reynolds asked people around downtown Portland about state funding for the arts and how culture factors into their lives in tough economic times.

President Obama will sign the final version of the $787 billion economic stimulus bill into law today, a major milestone in his early presidency. The bill includes $50 million in direct funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. Yet the fate of this funding was far from secure during the final days of deliberation in the House and Senate last week.  KBOO’s Frank Reynolds spoke with Eloise Damrosch, executive director of the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Chris D’Arcy, director of the Oregon Arts Commission, about the arts funding in the bill and what it means for arts organizations going forward.
