Smart Chicks Tamika "Love" Jones & Carolyn Malachi Take Bohemian Caverns
11th & U Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20009
Experience the rapture of Sister Bohemia. Hosted by Simone Jacobson, this event is a must-see, featuring musical guests, Tamika “Love” Jones and Carolyn Malachi.
Tamika Love Jones, a DC native and representative in her own right, charms music lovers with a gospel-jazz tonality aimed to touch the soul. Her development into music after losing loved ones to drugs and violence deems Jones’ art even more imperative as it penetrates the lives of young people, the heart of her community. Invited to work with the likes of artists Faith Evans, Mya and Grammy Award Winner, songwriter, Denise Rich, Jones is no stranger to the prospect of stardom; still, she walks her own path, performing at live festivals, private events, and especially community affairs, where her music moves the hearts and hopes of many.
Moving and shaking her audience, not to mention the jazz genre altogether, is Smart Chicks Inc. founder and poster chick, Carolyn Malachi. Having finished a February tour in sunny South Africa, only to bring a hot spell to Georgetown’s Blues Alley, the trailblazer makes her way to Bohemian Caverns, where the day is hot, but the night will blaze. Also a Maryland-DC dweller, Malachi continues to advance the Revenge of the Smart Chicks movement with what she calls a “haute-eclectic-soular-blues.” Great-granddaughter to jazz pianist, John Malachi, and acclaimed activist as well, Carolyn Malachi is nothing short of a headliner.
Also on Deck
Tamika and Carolyn will be styled by Madia Willis, designer and owner of BiriBelle clothing. The afrochic clothing line was inspired by Willis' study abroad experience in Ghana. The BiriBelle logo comes from the symbol “hye wonhye,” (shay-wo-en-shey) meaning “permanent or unburnable.” It’s no question, Willis is here to stay.
This event is sponsored by Fusicology, Mr. Briggs Management, BiriBelle Clothing, and Smart Chicks Inc. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. The event commences at Bohemian Caverns, 8p.m. on 11th and U Street, April 22, 2010.

Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
A Tisket A Tasket!
Dubbed "The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums

I think the idea is now for blacks to write about the history of our music. It's time for that, because whites have been doing it all the time.
It's time for us to do it ourselves and tell it like it is~~
Hahahaha...Yeah, Diz you hit the nail on the head. Tell it like it is...

"It quickly becomes apparent that in the gray area between jazz, r&b and soul, Tony Adamo is one of the top voices. What Is Hip? is easily recommended."
