Joe Louis Walker

Click to englarge image

Joe Louis Walker was born in San Francisco on Christmas Day of 1949. His parents were both from the South and they brought their love of blues with them when they headed west. Joes dad played blues piano, and his mom played B.B. King records. Walker picked up the guitar as a child, and by the time he was 16 was regularly backing touring blues artists rolling through town. San Franciscos music scene was quickly becoming a melting pot of blues, jazz and psychedelic rock, and Walker was right in the center of it.?? As a 16-year-old, Walker was the house guitarist at San Franciscos famed musical playground, The Matrix, where he played with or opened shows for everyone from Lightnin Hopkins to Jimi Hendrix to Thelonious Monk. He was also a regular at The Fillmore West. The blues legends Walker accompanied shared not only musical knowledge but also their personal wisdom with the teenage up-and-comer. Fred McDowell, Ike Turner, Albert King, Freddy King, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Lightnin Hopkins and many others taught, fed, and chastised the youngster.

Inspired by what he learned, Walker developed his own fiery, melodic, and always unpredictable guitar attack.??Walker met guitarist Michael Bloomfield in 1968 and the two became fast friends. Bloomfield helped push Walkers blues in a more rock-fueled direction, and he became the single biggest influence on Walkers sound. The two shared an apartment for years and remained close friends until Bloomfields death in 1981. From 1975 to 1985, Walker performed nothing but gospel music, playing and singing as a member of The Spiritual Corinthians. In 1986, after Walker returned to playing the blues, Hightone Records released his debut CD, Cold Is The Night. Firmly rooted in blues, gospel, R&B and rock, the album caught the attention of music fans around the country.

Prior to joining Alligator Records in 2012, Walker had released 23 albums and toured the world virtually non-stop. He has garnered four Blues Music Awards (and has been nominated a whopping 52 times) and holds an international reputation as one of the blues most prolific and talented stars. Hes also recorded as a guest with some of the blues worlds best-known artists, including appearances on Grammy-winning records by B.B. King and James Cotton.

March 14, 2015 THE GOD QUESTION by narrative feature by Doug Gordon A startling breakthrough at MIT produces the first super-intelligent computer capable of thinking independently. However, when it shuts down hundreds of websites it finds offensive, federal regulators quickly padlock the MIT lab in order to study it. Stephen Kendrick, who runs a supercomputer at University of Massachusetts in Amherst, taught at MIT previously and was one of the key code writers for the project. Hearing this, a Yale philosopher, Jane Hurst, suggests this: Feed the computer every book, news article, research paper essentially all human knowledge then ask it the ultimate question. Is there evidence for God, for a spiritual framework to life? Kendrick tells her the question was one of the first the MIT team planned to ask until the federal ban was imposed. However, Kendrick has a copy of the MIT software and a computer capable of running it. He decides to secretly defy the federal ban and ask the question, aided by a colleague, Alan Moss. They make plans to try on the weekends, when they can work undetected. There is an obstacle, though: The computer itself. Each time they load the MIT software and ask the question, the computer eventually shuts itself down, destroying its memory and leaving no trace of what it was thinking, no matter what they do to get around it. When the FBI begins to question Kendrick, Moss loses his courage and drops out. However, Jane Hurst joins Kendrick for one final attempt to get the answer.

Ami and Tami, a Purim Soire
Ami and Tami, a Purim Soire

Join us as Elie Wiesel Center transforms into an enchanted forest for Matti Kovler's Ami and Tami, a musical described as "a modern Jewish take on the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel." There will be two performances: one starting at 6 pm and one at 8 pm. Doors will open for music, food, and theatrical activities at 5 pm. Get tickets at http://ow.ly/J1rHD. Synopsis Ami and Tami are two imaginative siblings living in a strict and ambitious family. Their parents object to the childrens foolish ideas and educate them to see time management, wealth, and success as the primary goals in life. The children are thus forbidden from playing in the dark forest outside their house. One night the children decide to disobey their parents orders and run off into the forest. Guided by a talkative troll named Imf and a cabaret of Singing Lice, they discover a wonder-world of adventures and magical creatures. But the forest has its monsters too. After falling into the clutches of the Evil Ogre Humm and Yaga the Witch, Ami and Tami narrowly escape with the help of their new friends. Back at home, the frightened parents reconsider their ways. The ending scene shows the whole family joining in an imaginary game.Register by: 3/4/2015
