Pedicin Quintet Live Recording March 23-24

Somers Point has carved out a name for itself as a mini jazz mecca over the years, and few names in the genre are more recognizable in the area than that of tenor sax maestro michael Pedicin. This Friday and Saturday, march 23-24, Linwood resident Pedicin will follow up what he’s called his most successful CD with four live recording sessions at Sandi Pointe Coastal Bistro (908 Shore Rd. in Somers Point). He and his quintet (including guitarist Johnny Valentino, pianist Jim Ridl, drummer Bob Shomo and bassist Andy Lalasis) will perform two eight-song sets each night at 7:30 and 9:30pm. The shows will be professionally recorded and sound-mixed by area-based industry professionals John Mulhearn and John Rosenberg, and Pedicin and Brigantine resident Joe Donofrio will sort through the tracks and produce Pedicin’s 11th CD, slated for a July 31 release. “Each show will be exactly the same, because we’ll do the same eight songs that we’ll be recording and that will give us more choices to pick from,” says Pedicin. “The last cD I did [called Ballads … Searching for Peace, released in Oct. 2011] was the most successful one I’ve done, and gave me the most attention I think I’ve received in my life from a cD. It got reviewed in all the important jazz publications, it got a lot of radio play, and it just did a lot of nice things for me. So I’m just trying to follow that success up quickly with something else new.” The recordings will take place at Sandi Point’s 60-seat secondfloor venue dubbed “The Loft.” admission is $10. call 9272759 or visit michaelpedicin.com. For a detailed interview with Pedicin, visit acweekly.com — Ray Schweibert

Sherry Maricle at Stockton PAC

8 8

Heritage Blues Orchestra

Accomplished musician and drummer Sherrie Maricle, along with her swinging female-filled big band, the DIVa Jazz Orchestra, are set to take the stage of the Stockton Performing arts center on monday, march 26. DIVa, an ensemble comprised of 15 female musicians, has been previously featured on such programs as CNN Arts Break, CBS Sunday Morning, The 25th Anniversary of the Kennedy Center television special, and the NhK (Japan) Network’s New York Jazz. The band has performed everywhere from the apollo Theater in New York to various jazz festivals around the world. They’ve shared the stage with all-time greats like Nancy Wilson, Joe Williams, Diane Schuur and rosemary Clooney, just to name a few. A multi-talented musician herself, Maricle balances her career as a jazz artist, music director, teacher and composer. She leads DIVa as well as a quintet, FIVE PLaY, and the DIVa Jazz Trio all from her drum set. In addition to serving as the orchestra’s director of education, Maricle also performs at Carnegie Hall with the renowned New York Pops, works with Broadway star Maurice Hines as a music director, and serves as a teacher running a private drum set and percussion studio. In case all of that doesn’t keep her busy enough, she also is on the jazz faculty of the New York State Summer music Festival. maricle has won praise throughout her career receiving such honors as the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2009 mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival and the Kennedy Center Alliance Award for Outstanding achievements in the arts. Tickets for the upcoming performance at Stockton can be purchased online or by calling 652-9000. The show begins at 7:30pm and ticket prices range from $10-40. — Daniel Aupperle

Leadbelly, Son House, New Orleans, Nina Simone, Duke Ellington, jazz, gospel, Highway 61, Africa, and Debussy, are some of the ingredients and inspirations on this blues band’s new album, released in February. Although the music is tight and exceptionally articulated throughout the album’s 12 tracks, it are these aforementioned ghosts which speak to the listener the most on this record. Son House’s “Clarksdale Moan” kicks off the album with force and Muddy Waters’ “Catfish Blues” is a pleasant listen, but it’s when the group — including the fantastic vocals of Chaney Sims, along with Bill Sims Jr. on vocals and guitar, Junior Mack on slide guitars and dobro, a pair of outstanding harmonica players and a sweet horn section — sinks into spiritual territory such as with the blues-based “Get Right Church,” “Levee Camp Holler,” “Chilly Jordan” and the traditional closer “Hard Times” when they bring these ghosts back to life. —Jeff Schwachter

Maloney’s Uprising

Closed for a spell, Maloney’s Uptown is back in business and really rocked the house down over St. Patty’s Day weekend. By Ray Schweibert

M

UCH OF THE BEACH BLOCK east of Pacific and Tennessee avenues, where the majestic St. Nicholas of Tolentine church looms large, seemed last Saturday like the typically serene shore-town neighborhood in mid March. As one crept closer to the Boardwalk, however, and the vertical green letters spelling out Maloney’s on the side of the old former Greater Pittsburgh Hotel came into focus, serenity exited, stage left, and the essence of a party in full swing began to intensify. Maloney’s Uptown Sports Bar & Grille, a magnificent makeover of what for years was a tired old neighborhood haunt called McGuire’s Erin Bar at the base of the hotel, reopened a few months back after owners Hanna and John Hartnett sorted through some personal matters. And if Saturday’s showing is somehow indicative of Maloney’s fans finally having their withdrawal symptoms satisfied, there should be plenty of fun times ahead as the summer months start to unfold.

“We’re just really happy to be back,” says John Hartnett. “This whole area is starting to come back, little by little. We’re just taking it kind of slow right now, and gearing up and getting ready to go one-hundred percent this summer.” Live, local music and a festive ambience became a staple at Maloney’s, and Hartnett says he’s hoping to bring live music back as a regular weekly feature come the summer months. Until then it will be provided only on special occasions, which just happened to fall on back-to-back Saturdays when the St. Patrick’s Day parade hit town March 10, and the holiday itself fell on the following Saturday. Philly classic-rock band Le Compt was on hand for parade day, and last Saturday a five-man local band called The Loop (guitarist/vocalist Shaun Jordan, guitarist/vocalist Tony Alosi, keyboardist/vocalist Bill Kennedy, drummer Dan Pettolina and bassist Rik Virella) had the crowd dancing to a variety of modern and classic tunes in a cleared-out section near

CURTAIN CALL

Liza, Broken Leg and All By David J. Spatz

S

TART SPREADING THE NEWS — Liza Minnelli isn’t letting a little thing like a broken leg stand in the way of her debut in Borgata’s Event Center on Saturday, March 24.

The legendary show business triple threat — singer, dancer and actress — is back on her feet after breaking her leg in three places in November.“I wish I could say I did it dancing, but the truth is that I tripped over my dog,” Minnelli tells Atlantic City Weekly. So the breaks were set, her leg was placed in a cast for six weeks and Minnelli has been “working on it” and feeling better. Besides, compared to other orthopedic challenges she’s faced, a broken leg is a relatively minor set back. A lifetime of pounding the boards required her to have both of her hips replaced, the first in 1995 and the second five years later. Then, two years ago, she underwent surgery for a total knee replacement. “I have so much steel in my body that when I go through one of those things at the airport, it [plays a song],” she says with a laugh during a recent chat from her home in New York. She likes to tell people that “on the top half I’m Dorothy, and on the bottom, I’m the

daughter of the Tin Man,” a reference to her famous mother Judy Garland’s iconic role in The Wizard Of Oz. Yet in spite of those medical challenges — compounded by vocal chord surgery and a near-fatal bout of encephalitis a decade ago — Minnelli, 65, soldiers on. In fact, she said her 2010 knee replacement had a musical silver lining. Had she not been confined to bed for several weeks after the surgery, she might not have come up with the material for Confessions, her first studio album in years. “They told me after the surgery that I had to stay in bed like forever, and I thought I was going to go bananas,” she says. So she called her longtime pianist and friend Billy Stritch, himself a fine solo performer when he’s not working with Minnelli, and told him to come to her home with a keyboard so she could at least stave off boredom with music. “Finally, someone said this should be an album,” she says. “I wasn’t looking to do an album. I was just trying to find something to do while I was stuck in bed.” Minnelli’s body of work stretches across a variety of media, and she’s scored the biggest prizes from each. She won an Academy Award for her 1972 performance in Cabaret, an Emmy Award for her special Liza with a Z, a Living

Legend Grammy Award and five Tony Awards, including three for best actress in the plays Flora The Red Menace, The Rink and The Act. It’s hard for her to single out a favorite stage show, recording or TV special, but she does have one movie that holds a special place in her heart. If you’re thinking Cabaret, think again. “I’m very proud of all of [my movies] because I’ve really been lucky,” she says. “But I think I’m proudest of The Sterile Cuckoo, because that was purely an acting role, and to be nominated [for an Oscar] for your first [leading role] is very special.” Although her Borgata gig will be her first Atlantic City performance in about five years, she was a regular on the Boardwalk casino showroom circuit ever since making her debut here in 1985 at the original Golden Nugget. During the first 10 years of her Atlantic City performances, Minnelli was accompanied by a huge orchestra with a full string section. But that was in the days when casinos were flush and footed the bill for all those musicians. Eventually, most casinos that still had house bands started to cut costs. They told the performers they would have to pay for adding musicians to the house band. Since performing is as much of a business as it is an art form, and the goal is to make a profit, adjustments had to be made on the artist’s end of the deal, too. Minnelli’s longtime conductor Bill “Pappy” LaVorgna, who was also her mother’s music director a generation earlier, told Minnelli she didn’t need all those musicians anyway. “Pappy told me I could do it with 12 [musi-

cians], so I told him to go out and hire them,” she says of Lavorga, who died in 2007. Later, she scaled back to six or seven musicians, which is what she’ll bring to Borgata. “It’s so much fun because it makes it so intimate,” she says. “It’s just me, the musicians and the audience. It’s the simplicity of it all. I love it.” Minnelli is one of the few entertainers of her generation whose audience continues to grow. She still gets her share of fans from her days as a child performer. But she also sees a good number of young people who weren’t even born when she was cracking up movie audiences with her performance in Arthur. Minnelli doesn’t think there’s any deep thinking needed as to why she attracts younger people to her live shows. “I think it’s something as simple as someone saying, ‘Have you seen her? No? Well, you should, she’s good,’” she says. So, mended broken leg, bionic body and all, what can her audience expect to see this weekend? Minnelli doesn’t give the question a moment’s thought. “You’re going to see me at my best,” she says. “Broken leg and all.” n

HESE ARE PRETTY HEADY TIMES for Atlantic City despite a long string of declining revenue reports and — if everything falls into place just so — gamblers (and poker players) could see one of the biggest expansion of gaming options in years. That has a lot to do with a very real chance that New Jersey may finally approve intra-state online gaming this year. But more on that later. For the moment, the big thing in town is Revel, which is scheduled for a soft opening April 2. In a word, Atlantic City is mesmerized by this $2.4 billion resort, the first brand-new casino to open since the Borgata in 2003. With its sweeping ocean views, huge entertainment venues (Beyoncé will open up the entertainment Memorial Day weekend with three shows) and just the overall coolness of being brand new, a lot of people are pinning the city’s hopes on Revel. And poker is not being left out of the mix. The new resort includes a 37-table poker room that might immediately shake things up in the Atlantic City poker scene. First of all, it’s already pretty clear that the poker room won’t look like other poker rooms in the city. Revel is touting the fact that the room will have a wall of windows overlooking the casino floor. There are other rooms in the city with a view, such as the Taj Mahal’s (though the view is of the lobby), but the trend has been to build poker its own space away from the casino floor. Early press from Revel also promises Texas Hold’em, Omaha, 7-Card Stud, Razz, HOSE, and other mixed games. That’s actually kind of ambitious in this Hold’em crazy world. Revel is also promising daily tournaments, guaranteed tournaments, Bad-Beat Jackpots, and daily promotions. In other words, they’re diving right in. At 37 tables, Revel is about the same size as Harrah’s 40-table room. Harrah’s is the No. 3 room in the city behind the Taj Mahal and Borgata. Unlike the Golden Nugget, which opened a small room (20-tables) in December and so far has barely made a dent in the city’s poker scene, Revel may prove an instant competitor in the city’s poker scene. The Taj Mahal in particular, which in February took in a little better than $500,000 in poker revenue, may feel the hit the most

since the two casinos are neighbors on the Boardwalk. The Borgata, on the other hand, tucked in the Marina District, is so dominant (taking in $1.7 million in poker revenue in February) and has such hard-core player loyalty, that it’s hard to imagine Revel knocking them off their stride. But other casinos that see only a small amount of revenue from poker, such as Showboat and Caesars could take a serious hit. Still, those casinos are under the umbrella of Harrah’s Entertainment, which runs the WSOP and combines its poker promotions among its four A.C. properties. So how will it shake out? Well, somebody may close a poker room due to Revel, but for the moment, there’s going to be another new place to play and 37 more tables in action. What more could poker players want? As for the Internet gaming, as we told you a couple of weeks ago, the issue seems to be on the front burner in New Jersey again. A U.S. Justice Department opinion opened the door saying that intra-state Internet gaming, meaning restricted to residents of the state, would be legal under federal law. The stumbling block in New Jersey, however, seems to be whether a public referendum is needed to allow it under the state constitution, which only allows gambling in Atlantic City. State Sen. Raymond Lesniak, who has been the main force behind the idea, now says he thinks Internet gambling could be up and running by September without a referendum. A move to get the bill through the Legislature last week failed as some technical details still need to be worked out. Of course, the Legislature will be focused on the state budget in the next few months, but Lesniak is hopeful the gambling bill will move quickly. “We’re going to have to work harder and faster to get the regulations and licenses issued, that’s all,” Lesniak told pokernews. com. “We’ll still have it done by September. That can still be reached for sure. I was being conservative in saying it would be done by September.” Lesniak said he hopes to have the bill approved in both houses by April, clearing the way to issue licenses. n

Homestead Is Where the Heart Is

The last original restaurant to debut with the Borgata in 2004, Old Homestead Steak House was named Atlantic City’s top restaurant in Zagat’s 2012 America’s Top Restaurants guide.

A

s the final remaining, original restaurant property at the Borgata, Old homestead steak house maintains a special status among peers. When opened nearly a decade ago, Borgata pretty much redefined everything we had come to think about casino dining. executive chef romeo DiBona, the only person to ever oversee the kitchen here, explains Old homestead’s unique philosophy. “We have think-tanks — myself, [owners] marc and greg sherry, [general manager] Brian Palin and sous chefs amador Campos and luis rivera. We go over things — menu items, presentations.” since opening, name-brand chefs such as Wolfgang Puck and Bobby flay have also come to inhabit the sprawling facility. But Old homestead, which may also claim the distinction of being new York City’s most tenured steak house — existing since 1868 in the same location — has always managed to stand out. Part of that certainly comes from decades of experience. another crucial element is their extraordinary selectivity. Prime beef, typically accounting for less than 10 percent of all produced, just isn’t good enough for Old homestead. in fact, they are noted for rejecting anything that isn’t the top two or so percent of all graded beef. the dining space, with plenty of wood tones and multiple levels, is equally special. Our meal began with bang-bang shrimp, two colossal-size decapods. lightly tempura-battered the duo tilted together, like bosom buddies leaning

Old Homestead’s unique dining layout against each other after a long night of carousing. the huge shrimp — each hand-sized — were perfectly prepared, no small feat in and of itself. exteriors remained crisp and revealed a plethora of sweet white meat within. finished by pickled cucumbers, chipotle mayo and an ancho chile sauce, the garnishes nicely added to the lure of that magnificent seafood. as a middle course, we selected a recent addition to the bill of fare: Kitchen sink salad (with a name like that, did you really think we could skip it?). mixed greens blended with — deep breath — thinly sliced strips of salami, hearts of palm in small discs, chunky avocado, halved artichoke hearts, diced red onion,

cherry tomatoes, strips of red pepper and lots of unami-inducing bleu cheese. a light, unobtrusive champagne mustard vinaigrette provided acid and moisture to this mega-mix. it reminded us of a lovely sunday summer brunch you might enjoy at an italian’s home. it was light in texture and still provided plenty of oomph in the flavor department. throw in a loaf of crusty bread and this wonderful conglomeration would easily become a meal. my dining partner opted for wild salmon as her entrée. the thick filet, probably 10 ounces, was cut to match the rest of the prolific portions. mounted atop sautéed Chinese mustard greens, the fish was seared to a nice medium. glazed with

miso and topped by spicy sesame seeds, the pale pink protein was finished with a toss of crisp lotus chips. i don’t often order prime rib, typically preferring cuts like new York strip or rib eye. On this evening, i was glad to have made an exception. Described by our server as weighing in at 32 ounces, their empire Cut was over a foot in length and packed with the “wow” factor. Deeply pink, just as ordered, it possessed a degree of tenderness comparable to quality veal. But its flavor profile, big and bold, was entirely different. slowly roasted, the rich layers of marbled fat had broken down, creating a luscious mouth feel as well. i paired this classic with two steakhouse favorites — asparagus with hollandaise and tater tots. the asparagus, ideally in tune with the early spring we’re enjoying, was offered either grilled or steamed. We opted for the former, and delighted in one of the very best versions of “mother sauce” hollandaise we’ve ever sampled, warm, viscous and eggy. as for the tots, they arrived in a paper cone, loaded with pieces of thick-cut bacon. Crunchy and hot, these little nuggets were more than enough for us both to share. my dessert, Drunken Banana, paired plenty of that ripe fruit on top of two mini cinnamon buns. the bananas were flambéed, foster-style, then ladled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We loved the transition here, cool cream, followed by warm banana then soft, buttery pastry. n

s OF aPriL 2012, Liza cartMeLL will have five employees working for her at the atlantic city alliance (aca), the non-profit group created last year to re-brand and market atlantic city. all five employees at the aca, which runs on an annual $30 million budget, funded by the crda and backed by the casinos, will be working in atlantic city. “Basically, there’s really three core functions that we’re trying to address,” cartmell tells Atlantic City Weekly, “the marketing piece, the public relations piece, and then, really, event planning to really help start drive incremental visitation through unique destination-type activities here in the market place.” cartmell says that while the atlantic city convention & Visitors authority (accVa) “still plays a very important role” in promoting events within the city, and at their core properties (Boardwalk Hall and the atlantic city convention center), the reach of the aca is to try and get people to come to Like us:

atlantic city in a more general sense. cartmell, with the aid of recently recruited ad firm euro rscg and Pr firm edelman, wants to help build “city-wide promotions” to attract visitors, especially in the spring and fall months. “there’s an opportunity to take those times and periods when the city’s quiet and try and figure out how we can create events that will be special enough that people will want to take a day off from work and come on down.” With regard to the recent wave of high expectations and hope for a brighter future for atlantic city, since the crda unveiled its master plan for a new state-ordered tourism district in February, cartmell says it has only made her job easier. “there’s so much that’s going on that’s good,” says cartmell, “and it really has enabled us to build a campaign that is very positive and is very upbeat and that does really talk to all of the really positive things that are going on.

“so we’re really becoming, to some extent, the voice that is trying to tell everyone about what is happening here.” cartmell’s aim is to bring a broader appeal to atlantic city, rather than the one-off concert or festival. “there’s a lot of promotion for one-time special events, but those are one-time events and we’re trying to figure out how to put a broader umbrella on the appeal of the market place than just that one concert,” she says. cartmell says that the new marketing campaign for atlantic city will kick off in midapril. “there’s a very strong difference of perception between people who have been here and people who have not been here in recent years,” says cartmell. “and our campaign is really about getting people to reappraise what they think about atlantic city. so they go, ‘You know, i didn’t think of it that way. We should go down.’ We want to create a call-toaction to really bring people down.” With the new revel resort opening in april, and its ceO Kevin desanctis stating that he hopes to draw new visitors from the northeast to atlantic city, from Boston down to Washington d.c., does cartmell think the new luxury mega-resort can achieve that goal? “Oh, absolutely,” says cartmell. “[desanctis] has created a spectacular experience and quite honestly that’s what people are looking for when they travel. they’re looking for a unique, different experience and [revel] will definitely be able to offer that.” cartmell says that the aca’s campaign

to lure visitors to atlantic city will be “very consistent” with revel’s. “they’re sort of a proof point for what we are saying, which is that it’s all here,” she says. “a lot of places have beaches, a lot of places have urban, a lot of places have entertainment, they have food, they have shopping, but not very many have it all together the way we do and as compact of a [foot]print that we do. “try to think of another place that has all of that.” cartmell adds there is huge opportunity to attract more visitors not only by touting all that atlantic city has to offer, but special destinations in the surrounding areas as well. “the wineries, the golf courses,” cartmell gives as examples of day-trip opportunities for atlantic city visitors. not to mention the other beach towns along the southern Jersey shore. “People like to meander and explore and we need to make sure they know what’s out there,” says cartmell. What does cartmell hope the aca will have achieved five years from now? “i hope to get us back to the level of visitation that we enjoyed five years ago, because everything else follows from that,” she says. “it increases jobs, it increases profitability and it increases economic growth.” n

under the bridge. it appears that the seminal act, which reunited in 2007, is cool with one another. however, you never know when the good vibes will dissipate. now is the time to catch Van halen. with this band, the future is always uncertain. however, it’s fun to go back and enjoy the group’s rich past. the band continues to stand out since most of its canon is inspired by party vibes and that’s an exception in this angst-without-a-clue era. “Beautiful Girls,” “everybody wants some,” “hot For teacher” and “Panama” are fun-loving songs that have rocked many a party over the past several decades. it’s always been easy to escape with Van halen, a band that loves to toast the good life, but the band’s talent and dedication are beyond question. Roth, who is regarded as one of rock’s great party boys, put the time in to hone his craft. “i studied music,” Roth tells this writer. “it helped that i grew up loving it, but i examined it closely. the problem today is that kids don’t study and they should. they should study the Beach Boys for harmonies. they should study ZZ top up until 1983 for guitar work. there’s a lot they should study. But a lot of young recording artists don’t study; they just do it on their own. that’s not right. that’s like picking up an intricate nikon camera and just firing away. You need

to know the instrument. You need to know how to make music.” that’s something Van halen has always had a handle on. the members of the band have each put in their time with music and it has shown since the group emerged out of the los angeles scene during the mid-’70s. “it’s obvious how much i love music,” Roth says. “it’s my passion.” Considering the band’s rocky history, it’ll be interesting to see if the current Vh run is long-term. Just due to the band’s hits, rock status and party-boy shenanigans, Vh will always be able to play arenas. the group can call its shots and it appears that the Van halens and Roth are getting along. that’s good news for fans, many of whom have expressed their preference for Roth over his replacement sammy hagar, who has had two stints with the band. “i always thought i had a great chemistry with the guys in [Van halen] Roth says. “i don’t think anybody else has that.” Good (and cartoonish) old-fashioned fun in rock is in short supply these days, but Roth, who personally suggested that fellow 1970s and ’80s hit-makers and party-starters Kool & the Gang open for Van halen on the current tour (see sidebar) has plenty of it. “i hope it comes back someday,” Roth says. “that’s the kind of music i get. what’s wrong with having a good time? life is too short. You got to make room for some rock music.” n

Kool & The GanG’s RobeRT “Kool” bell From the East Side of Youngstown, Ohio, but raised in New Jersey, robert “Kool” Bell has been involved with music since his early days in the Jersey City band the Jazziacs, which he founded with his brother ronald in 1964. “We and Atlantic City go way back,” says Bell, 61, during a phone call from montreal, Canada, where Kool & The Gang opened its 10th show for Van halen on the seminal ’70s/’80s bands’ current 50-date tour. “Atlantic City has always been great for us ... [ever since the] Wonder Garden days. [It was] probably in the late ’60s into the ’70s when we played the Wonder Garden. We were the Jazziacs Soul Town Band when we played the Wonder Garden. We played Club harlem, too.” After the jazz-based band morphed into Kool & The Gang in 1968, Bell and company took years to reach their peak. After a decade of several r&B and pop hits (“higher Plane,” Jungle Boogie,” “Spirit of the Boogie,” and “Open Seasame,” the latter from from the Grammy-winning soundtrack to 1977’s Saturday Night Fever) the group added a pair of vocalists, including former New Jersey lounge singer J.T. Taylor, which helped the group to reach an entirely new level of success. What followed was a string of megaselliong albums and video-era hits, many of which have never left the musicsphere. From the funk-drenched “Get Down on It” and the anthemic “Celebrate” and “Ladies Night,” to later hits such as “Cherish,” “Joanna” and “Fresh,” Kool & The Gang’s repertoire grew into a wedding and Bar mitzvah DJ check list. how many times has Bell been at a formal event and heard “Celebration” either via the DJ or played by the band? “Several times,” Bell says with a laugh. “The ones that you go to they got to at least play ‘Celebration.’ ... I just sit back and enjoy.” David Lee roth gambled that Kool & The Gang would be an ideal opening act for the band’s current reunion tour. “When we were rehearsing in L.A. before the tour, [roth told me] that [Van halen’s] fan base is 60-percent ladies, and we have the song ‘Ladies Night.’ ‘You guys were the pop-funk group of the ’80s, and we were the rock party band of the ’80s,’ he said. ‘Kool, it makes sense to me.’ And I said, ‘David, it does to me too, so let’s go party.’” (Read more from this interview at acweekly.com) — Jeff Schwachter

hen Van halen was in its prime more than 30 years ago, the hedonistic party rocking band epitomized good times. it was no surprise that Jeff spicoli, sean Penn’s character of Fast Times at Ridgemont High fame hired Van halen to play a party. Van halen was many things during its heyday. Guitarist eddie Van halen expanded the sonic lexicon with his tapping and hammering skills. the band always had a rock-solid rhythm section and perhaps the perfect frontman in David lee Roth, who was provocative, energetic and (always) hilarious. (“have you seen Junior’s grades?”) Van halen, which will perform saturday, March 24, at historic Boardwalk hall in atlantic City, was surprising during its salad days and that hasn’t changed. who would ever guess that the brothers Van halen, eddie and drummer alex Van halen, Roth and eddie’s son wolfgang on bass, could continue to charm and rock audiences in a similar manner nearly 40 years after forming in los angeles. the venerable reunited band, which is touring behind A Different Kind of Truth, its first album with Roth in 28 years, still has the goods. the disc is as solid as the group. the band’s recent performance in Philadelphia included the hits and plenty of energy. eddie Van halen is still an inspired player even after being lionized as one of the greatest guitarists ever. his brother and son are locked in as the rhythm section. and then there is Roth, who remains a charismatic raconteur. it’s not the same as when he was doing splits after jumping off the drum riser back in 1981. But he can still move in an elegant manner and crack one-liners. it’s amazing that Van halen has pulled off the reunion. it’s not an easy task, especially since there was considerable bad blood between Roth and the Van halens. Back in 1998 when eddie and alex chose to hire forgettable extreme vocalist Gary Cherone to front the band, eddie waxed about the group’s inevitable Rock and Roll hall of Fame induction. “You can have Dave [Roth] and sammy [hagar] sing backup at the hall of Fame behind Gary,” he said in reference to the band’s former lead singers. well, that didn’t happen. it didn’t help that neither Roth nor the Van halens showed up when the band was inducted. But the bad blood is like water

ocal photographers — both professionals and hobbyists — will have the opportunity of a lifetime on Wednesday and thursday, april 4 and 5, inside the new campus center at stockton college, located in galloway. a special presentation from artc — an organization dedicated to promoting the arts in southern New Jersey — in partnership with the Noyes Museum of art and stockton college, Photo SJ 2012 will showcase two of the world’s most accomplished and respected professional photographers: John russo and seth resnick. both russo and resnick are world-class visual artists. “I could not be more pleased to bring this level of photography education to the region,” says bill horin, founder and director of artc. “the work is simply mind-blowing. John is a master of lighting and one of the finest living portrait photographers. seth is a master of color and creating dramatic images from the natural world. We are privileged to have them share tips, tricks and advice.” the two-day event will feature workshops and presentations by russo, resnick and other working photographers and visual artists from the area, including horin, a professional photog of 30-plus years and stockton junior Frank Weiss, an area-photog and filmmaker who recently had his own showcase at the Noyes premiering his documentary film, The Road Is Coming. admission to the Photo SJ 2012 workshops and meet-and greets are affordable and there are tuition discounts available for students, working photographers and members of the american society of Media photographers. russo’s and resnick’s eve-

Jeff Bridges by Russo. Right: Resnick’s work. ning presentations are free and open to the public. the two-day event will allow attendees to discover “secrets of commercial photography success,” “learn new techniques in composition, lighting and editing,” and network with photographers from throughout the region, according to horin. While the two-day showcase is intended for both professional and aspiring photographers, artists and designers, it is really for everyone with an interest in visual media, stresses horin. “In my experience, getting the opportunity to spend time with photographers of this caliber normally requires a trip to a major city,” says horin. “We put this program together to give photographers and other artists in the region a chance to learn

from the best without the travel.” horin will also be conducting a workshop with Weiss, which will focus on techniques for harnessing the power of new-generation digital slr technology for cinematic video production. russo, a Ventnor native, is among hollywood’s most requested portrait photographers. after graduating from stockton college, russo pursued fashion photography in Miami. but it wasn’t until he relocated to los angeles to pursue the field of portrait photography that he got his first big break. a publicist approached him about doing a photo shoot of then-obscure actor Josh hartnett. since then, russo has shot numerous celebs, including Jeff bridges, brad pitt, angelina Jolie, Will smith, sophia loren.

his photos can often be seen on the covers of popular magazines. resnick, who teaches and lectures around the world, is also one of North america’s most respected photographers. his images have been published in 2,500 publications, including National Geographic. a co-founder of D-65, the educational resource for digital photography, resnick also does consulting for manufacturers, software developers and agencies around the globe.

my young daughter, but she was very kind when explaining to Jillian how it was sharing a stage with such an impressive array of talent. These days Jillian sings, plays piano and is in a band. It’s obvious that Apple, 34, who has a reputation as a bad girl, had a positive impact on her. Musical maverick Apple is younger than you think since she’s been in the industry for almost 20 years. “This has been my life,” Apple says. “It’s what I’ve always been about.” Apple’s sister Maude Maggart is also a New York-based singer. “My sister is just phenomenal,” Maggart says. “I don’t think there is anyone like her.” High praise, but accurate in an age of recording artists who could be mistaken for clones of each other. Apple does things in her own way and she has plenty of future in her as she has yet to hit the

mid-life point. “I enjoy creating,” Apple says. “That’s

the stage. “I tend to live in the moment,” Apple says. Well, Apple’s outbursts are well-known. The last time she played the Borgata in 2006, she left a lasting impression after a patron made the mistake of asking her to hurry up and finish off her show. “You want me to what?” Apple asked incredulously. “You want me to fucking finish it off? Well, fuck you. I’m not going to finish off anything until I’m done.” You don’t get that sort of musician-fan give and take very often, especially in this politically correct era. That’s part of the reason to check out Apple Saturday. She’s a live wire. You never know what she’ll do. That works both ways. She was a completely different animal when she performed at a VH1 series being filmed in Atlantic City back in 2005, Decades Rock Live. Apple appeared

on a bill that was paying tribute to and featured Elvis Costello. The event was taped at the Mark Etess Arena inside the Trump Taj Mahal. The producers tapped Billy Joe Armstrong, Death Cab For Cutie and Apple to join Costello for a wellpaced, infinitely entertaining show. Apple was on her best behavior and was just terrific. “I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed that show and how nervous I was performing with Elvis Costello,” Apple says. “It was fabulous.” Costello appeared genuinely pleased with Apple, who more than held her own with the iconoclast. Apple smiled during and after her performance. She charmed throughout the show and during a post-show party. Apple was even kind enough to entertain my then seven-year old daughter Jillian, who was and remains a huge fan, at the party. I had no idea how Apple would deal

just the way it is with me.” It’ll be curious to see what Apple comes up with in the future. The hope is that she becomes a bit more prolific than she has been. But as long as she pushes the envelope, fans should be satisfied as it’s better to have a great album released every seven years than a mediocre release every few. What’s perhaps most impressive about Apple is that she has continued to improve with each album. Her debut Tidal is very good, but it was eclipsed by her sophomore effort When

HE RUMORS ARE APPARENTLY true. Fiona Apple is back. She has recorded, The Idler Wheel, only her fourth album in 15 years. The disc will drop during the summer. Apple previewed some new tracks last week at the South By Southwest Music conference in Austin, Texas. The diminutive powerhouse impressed the plethora of industry folk, who came to check her out at the annual music conference. Apple, who will advance her tunes Saturday, March 24, at the Borgata, delivered old and new tunes at dusk at Stubbs. She kicked off the show with the rambling “Fast As You Can.” Further, renditions of “Extraordinary Machine,” and “Sleep To Dream” were sublime. But SXSW is more about what’s happening now and in the future. Apple’s fresh material is rock, jazz and soul based. “I’ve always done what I’ve wanted to do,” Apple tells Atlantic City Weekly. Well, that’s part of Apple’s appeal. She has never followed anyone’s template. Who else would go seven years between albums? The beguiling Apple doesn’t care about anything but the songs, and when the new stuff is ready, she’ll deliver. And that’s what she did in Austin. Many of the fresh cuts are surprisingly straightforward. Apple has always been a vocalist-pianist, but also enjoys complex arrangements. “Valentine,” “Every Single Night” and “Anything We Want” are each sexy, sensual love songs. They stand out since there’s a dearth of love songs out there, especially when they’re as carefully crafted as the tunes Apple has penned. “I’ve always favored love songs,” Apple says. “It’s something I enjoy writing and singing about.” That’s been the case for Apple throughout her career. Her three albums are primarily filled with songs about relationships or romantic situations. She has always been good with anything related to amour. Apple has always had a flair for the dramatic and that showed up in Austin, too. “You’re not real,” Apple yelled at the crowd. Curious, yes, but you never know what you’ll get when you see Apple on

Platonic Parenting ‘Friends With Kids’ takes a modern slant on child rearing, plus ‘John Carter’ By Lori Hoffman

ctress Jennifer Westfeldt makes her debut as director, as well as writer (Kissing Jessica Stein) with Friends With Kids, a sharp new Yorkbased romantic drama featuring a great cast. the cast was an asset — Westfeldt, Adam scott, Jon Hamm, Maya rudolph, Kristen Wiig, chris O’dowd, Megan fox, edward Burns — even before the success of Bridesmaids elevated the profiles of Wiig and rudolph (O’dowd and Hamm were also in the film). i hope the Bridesmaids connection makes more people take notice of this touching and funny film about a new take on parenthood in the modern world. it’s funny and touching and there is one prominent “poop” joke, but that’s where the similarity to Bridesmaids ends. this is a movie that flirts with romantic and comedic clichés but for the most part brings a fresh perspective as it dives under and around obvious traps while keeping the emotional level dancing from lighthearted to achingly intimate as needed. Julie Keller (Jennifer Westfeldt) and Jason fryman (Adam scott) are 30-something best friends since college, both single, both straight, who live in the same rent-controlled Manhattan apartment building. As the story unfolds, they observe their married friends adding children to the mix. the level-headed, likable leslie (Maya rudolph) and Alex (chris O’dowd), seem to be taking the kids in stride, while the more anxious Missy (Kristen Wiig) and Ben (Jon Hamm), seem to be losing the romantic spark as old married folks with a son. With these prime examples in front of them, Julie and Jason decide they want to have a child and shared parenting responsibilities as single people dating others. the reaction of their friends ranges from thoughts of insanity to stupidity and the afterthought that maybe there have been worse ideas in the world. Julie and Jason do have a child on their terms and seem to have the parenting bit down like clockwork, both annoying and fascinating their friends. in addition, they have each found romantic partners, foxy babe Mary Jane (Megan fox) for Jason and likable hunk Kurt (edward Burns) for Julie. the intimate bonds of joint parenting begin to strain the bonds of platonic love

Beating a Dead Horse

Writing about st. Patrick’s day movies last week saved me from having to write about John Carter, but space must be filled. After reading that John Carter is going to be a failure of epic proportions, a prediction made months ago as bad word-of-mouth leaked about the film, why beat a dead horse? even disney announced that the movie made for $250 million will likely lose $200 million in March alone. Based on the writings of edgar rice Burroughs in a series of novels from 1912 to 1943, John Carter follows the same genre dance as last summer’s failure Cowboys vs. Aliens. the titled character is a cowboy with a tragic past and serious fighting skills (he was a confederate soldier), who is searching for gold. instead he finds a magic object that transports him to Mars where the lighter gravity allows him to leap great distances. that is, once he figures out that he isn’t home anymore and gets the hang of it. the movie isn’t as horrible as Battlefield Earth, but it is pretty dull and the acting is less than engaging. taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), in the title role, didn’t have a chance. You know you are in trouble when the cGi “dog” is the most engaging character in the story. n
