‘Sacred Fire EP’ (Collective Sounds)

Henrietta Shelton to Receive American Conference on Diversity Award

The Atlantic County Chapter of the American Conference on Diversity will honor Atlantic City’s Henrietta Shelton at its Annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner at the Atlantic City Country Club in Northfield on Thursday, Dec. 1. Also being honored this year are the Reliance Medical Group and the Women’s Center in Linwood. Shelton, president of the Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation, Inc., is being honored for her volunteer work as the head of the CBBHF and for promoting black history “by keeping alive the history of the sociallyrestricted black beach in Atlantic City from which it draws its name.” Shelton is also being honored for her commitment to the arts. The CBBHF has presented a free summer jazz concert series on the Atlantic City Boardwalk for a decade, a winter jazz concert series at the Chelsea for two years (and is expected to kick off its third year in 2012), created the Chicken Bone Beach Youth Ensemble, and new this summer, launched the Atlantic City Youth Jazz Camp at the Carnegie Library Center of Stockton College in Atlantic City. “The principles that this organization stands for are the same principles that the Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation stands for,” she says, adding that she is thrilled to be honored by such a prestigious group. This isn’t the first time Shelton’s been applauded for her community efforts. In 2006, she was presented with the Spirit of Hospitality award, sponsored by the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority at the annual Atlantic City Host Awards Gala. She has also won numerous awards for her work at the FAA Tech Center, where she has been a technical editor for 36 years. Shelton has spent 15 years dedicating her free time (and often her own funds) to present live jazz in the area. She says her long-time goal is to help make an Atlantic City Jazz Hall of Fame a reality. “One thing about music and good music is that it draws a diverse group of people together to enjoy both the music and themselves.” Aside from providing free concerts, Shelton adds: “Our goal has always been to have a hall of fame in Atlantic City — a history of jazz music. It can help foster more interaction between jazz teachers and students and bring a new attraction to the city. We could have shows, classes, a wax museum, artifacts, you name it. I have a business plan all ready!” Shelton’s latest award is tightly knit with her own beliefs and her organization’s mission. “We’re honored,” she says. “That was the goal of the concerts, to bring quality people together and to focus on the good parts of Atlantic City and its rich history. It’s been about fostering family unity, community unity and camaraderie, and good human spirit — things the world needs more than ever these days.” — Jeff Schwachter

Newark Boys Choir Plays A.C.

New Jersey’s Newark Boy’s Choir performs 6pm Wednesday, Dec. 7, at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church in Atlantic City. The concert benefits the church food bank, which serves about 35,000 people annually. The choir, known as Newark’s “musical ambassadors,” has a diverse repertoire from classical to jazz. They have performed throughout the world and at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York. While in town, the choir will also stage a special concert for city students. The Wednesday public concert also honors the late Lillian Levy, the only Atlantic County resident to chair the state’s Council of the Arts. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the church gift shop. Call 344-1040. — Mike Pritchard

On Jimmy Cliff’s latest offering, the five-song EP Sacred Fire (a bonus track is available on the 12” vinyl version), the reggae pioneer teams up with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong for a sunny set of vintage reggae music. With the 40th anniversary of Cliff’s groundbreaking film and album The Harder They Come coming next year, the highly influential Jamaican star back-peddles a bit with that pivotal work in mind. The first track, for example, is a cool cover of The Clash’s gritty “Guns of Brixton,” in which The Harder They Come is referenced. Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” is also included in the set. Featuring all of Dylan’s original verses and lyrics — with the minor exception of changing “blue-eyed son” to “brown-eyed son” — Cliff’s version sounds as relevant today as Dylan’s version did in 1963. Cliff’s only new song here is the catchy “Ship Is Sailing,” which on the 63-year-old’s first studio release since 2004, is as sweet as reggae gets. —JS

ike the ambassador for independent music he previously assisted, Justin Pierce opted to strike out on his own and help find places for local, originalmaterial producing musicians to hone their craft in live-audience settings. in doing so, the Port republic resident recently launched the fledgling promotional/ booking company JP entertainment, which will host its inaugural event on friday night, dec. 2, at Le Grand fromage in atlantic City. five acts, including two bands trekking down from syracuse, New York, will be part of the festivities. “this is our first show,” says Pierce. “basically it’s just me and my girlfriend [singer/songwriter/guitarist Chrissy rubcich, who will open the show at 9pm]. i was helping Jerry [ryan] at Elephant Talk [Indie Music] Magazine and just wanted to be a little more hands-on myself with bringing bands to town. i wanted to get more involved with bringing a little bit of culture to the area that’s different from your typical dJ spinning other people’s music, or the big-time bands coming to town that you have to pay at least $45 a ticket to see.” the Pine barrens-based folk/bluegrass/ acoustic trio bog iron boyz (with bassist samuel ross and guitarists Josh Petty and steve Nordone) will start around 9:45pm, then another trio, the metal band born again rebels (guitarist Gary haydu, bassist eric maliszewski and drummer alan haydu) from syracuse, will take the stage at 10:45pm. Local standout resident stone (lead guitarist rick Land, rhythm guitarist rebel somers, drummer andrew Clark, bassist sam ross and lead vocalist rob dief) will perform starting 11:45pm, and syracuse quintet Just a memory (lead guitarist Nate hopper, violinist Leila dean, rhythm guitarist Joe dimaggio, bassist rob fehrman and drummer Joe Culotti) will close out the night starting 12:45am. “We’re saying the show goes until about 2am, but if we get a good crowd that wants to stick around, some of the band members said they’re willing jam even later,” says Pierce. “it’s great we got two bands from syracuse to come down. i’ve heard Just a memory before and they’re excellent, and born again rebels i think has a sort of modern-day, southern-rock feel to it. “there’s a lot of [local] bands around here but people don’t hear too much about them, because where do they play, really?” adds Like us:

facebook.com/ACWeekly

The Bog Iron Boyz Pierce. “i mean, maybe some of them occasionally travel to Philly, but most of them are not going to take the time and expense to travel that far, and any following they have is not likely to go all the way to Philly just to see them play. that’s one of our biggest things — we want to try to get an originalmusic scene to take off here a little bit. don’t get me wrong, cover bands have their place, but we’re trying to promote good, local, original music.” the event will include drink specials all night long, among them $5 Long island ice teas and a $15 “bottomless mug” draft beer bracelet. military personnel enter for $5 with military id. on-site parking is free. “[Le Grand fromage owner] mike [messina] has been a great person to deal with,” says Pierce. “he’s always willing to work with people and has a great business sense. he’s doing whatever he can to help bring in people. i mean, it helps him too, but you can tell he’s doing it because he’s behind what we’re trying to do as well.” another anticipated show on Le Grand fromage’s horizon is the elephant talk indie music awards on New Year’s eve, which will honor local artists in 20 categories including hard rock, r&b, hip-hop/rap, singer/songwriters, guitar gods and others. that event will include the induction of two musicians into the elephant talk music hall of fame — malcolm tent and Jack Zawacki. more on the elephant talk music awards will appear at acweekly.com. n

Blige’s ‘Life’ Continues By David J. Spatz

W

PhoTo bY Tom brIgLIA

hen Mary J. Blige released

her breakthrough album My Life in 1994, recording a sequel to the intensely personal collection of songs was never her goal or intention. It was supposed to be a one-and-done project, and for 17 years and through seven more albums, that’s exactly what it was: a stand-alone, Grammy-nominated effort that put Blige on the charts and in the minds of a growing legion of worldwide fans. “I never wanted to do another My Life album,” Blige says. last year, however, Blige took a step back, looked at her life and the world surrounding it, and decided it was time to revisit My Life with a fresh perspective. and so My Life II: The Journey Continues (Act 1) was born. The follow-up album that was never supposed to happen was released nov. 21, and Blige offered a simple explanation as to why she looked at her past to help her develop the music of the future. she discovered there was a common thread — a consistency — that bridged the first My Life album to the follow-up. “[In] the first My Life album, there was a lot going on in our lives and it wasn’t all positive,” Blige tells Atlantic City Weekly during a chat prior to an album launch party at The Pool after dark at harrah’s resort on saturday, nov. 26. “so there has been a lot of growth and evolution since then. The beautiful thing about now is that we can look back at that album and look at how strong we are and how much we’ve conquered and come through, and that’s the reason for [My Life II] now.” although songs on the original album focused more on Blige’s early life and personal struggles with clinical depression, drug and alcohol abuse and an abusive relationship, the new album speaks to problems affecting many people. The hip-hop scented collection of r&B songs, performed by Blige and a veritable who’s who of modern music including Kanye West, JayZ, Timbaland and alicia Keys, is about the “struggle to get to the next level,” she says. “[It’s about] the breakthrough and then the trial, so now at a time like this, when there’s recession and war, people need that healing and that love and that understanding from a record,” she says. “Music used to make people feel great, and that’s why now, because it’s time.” although the music is personal, Blige admits it connects with her fans because many of them have been through the same trials and tests she endured as a child and as an emerging artist. The album “is mostly for my fans and I and anyone who wants to be involved,” she says. Critics have already heaped praise on My Life II, and more than one has suggested the new album offers competition for the original as to which is the better product. Blige bristled at the thought the new album is competing Like us:

Blige in A.C. Nov. 26 with the old one. she made it clear that the first album was — and always will be — a very special project. “It was never meant to be a competition,” she says firmly. “It was only meant to be an extension of the first My Life album, because there is no competition for the first My Life album.” Blige, 40, is a four-time Grammy awardwinner who came from a broken home in new York. her father was a jazz musician who divorced Blige’s mother and then abandoned Blige and her sister. at 17, Blige recorded an anita Baker hit in a recording booth at a mall, the song got played for an executive at Uptown records and at 19 Blige was signed as the label’s youngest and first female artist. after three years of session work, Blige recorded and released her debut album, What’s the 411? with 19-year-old Sean “Puffy” Combs serving as executive producer. “You remind Me” became the album’s first breakout single and rode all the way to the top of the r&B charts and proved to be a musical springboard for Blige’s career. In addition to her music, Blige has been dabbling in the acting world for about a dozen years with character roles on both television shows and in motion pictures. she recently completed production of the film version of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. The all-star ensemble cast includes Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta Jones, alec Baldwin, Paul giamatti and russell Brand. Blige plays the role of Justice Charlier, the owner of a gentleman’s club known as The Venus Club. “It’s a more elaborate version of a strip club,” Blige says. “[In the role], I have to be a light in a dark place and make sure that ... [the strippers] feel good and confident about their lives in such a dark place.” Rock of Ages is due to be released in June 2012. n

he winner of the Borgata fall open championship was 24-yearold andrew Badecker, of Vernon, Conn., who sees his career earnings come close to $1 million with the $388,657 win. Badecker has had two previous cashes at the Borgata at last year’s (2010) Borgata open, including a first in a no Limit event, good for about $28K. But this year is shaping up to be his best ever and includes a first at the world Series of Poker Shootout no Limit event in Las Vegas, where he took home $369,371. So barring any unreported pot splits, the Borgata win is his best payday to date by $19K. “Borgata is hands down my most run good casino,” Badecker told the casino’s blog. “i’ve never had a losing trip here.” Don’t we all wish we had a “run good” casino? Badecker outlasted a field of 670 and a final table that included wSoP bracelet winners freddy rouhani and Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy. heads up, he was against newcomer tony nguyen (McLean, Va.) with a two-to-one chip lead and got him with a simple king high against nguyen’s suited eight, nine on the final hand. Still, for nguyen, who wins $218,531, this is the kind of finish amateurs dream of. “this is my first year playing,” said nguyen. “i’m really happy coming in second considering i was short-stacked all the way to the final table.” the final day of play started wednesday (nov. 23) with 63 players and lasted into early thursday (thanksgiving) morning. So the Borgata’s november experiment has to be deemed a huge success and now means the casino will offer its trademark opens five times a year. and combined with Caesars wSoP circuit events, ensures that the city will see major tournament action from november to March with only one month off in february. Like us:

facebook.com/ACWeekly

next up is the wSoP circuit event at harrah’s resort, which starts thursday, Dec. 1, with a $300 + $45, two-day, no Limit hold’em event. Last year’s opening event drew a harrah’s resort record 1,250 entries. the circuit event runs through Dec. 12 with a daily “main” event, where the winner is awarded a wSoP ring, each day. But the schedule also includes secondary tournaments and satellites. in fact the first satellite for the $1,500 + $100 championship event (Dec. 10, three-day event) is also Dec. 1 with a $165 + $25 tournament at 5pm. there are also a couple of wSoP 2012 main event satellites on Dec. 11 ($520 + $30) and Dec. 12 ($1035 + $65). Missing from the schedule is the high stakes, $9,700 buy-in regional championship held at last year’s event (won by Chris Bell). that high buy-in led to low turnouts at the four regionals held last year (only 136 at the harrah’s event), so the wSoP discontinued them. But there’s still plenty of action through the first half of December. the circuit events will return to Caesars atlantic City, with a similar schedule, March 1-12. in January, you can expect the Borgata’s winter open from Jan. 18 to feb. 3 (oK, there’s a little spillover into february). no schedule has been released, but the $2 million guaranteed prize pool championship event starts Jan. 29. So that should satisfy tournament grinders through the winter months. in some other news, the Caesars entertainment three Card Poker 6 Bonus promotion hit again, though not for the $1 million grand prize that hit last month. this time the hit was good for $100,000. the game is played at Caesars properties’ three-card poker tables on the casino floors. if a player makes the six-card bonus bet, they get a shot at bonuses counting their three cards and the dealer’s three cards together. Yeah, it’s a little confusing, but if you hit a six-card super diamond flush (to the nine) you get $1 million. on friday, nov. 25, richard n. wood, of newport news, Va., hit a super royal flush in hearts at harrah’s resort, which is good for $100,000. “i didn’t actually realize what i had won till after a few minutes,” wood, 72, told the casino. “when they told me i almost had a heart attack. it’s a day i’ll never forget.” wood’s total bet was $20. n To keep up to date on Atlantic City poker news and bad-beat totals visit Atlantic City Weekly’s poker blog, “The Real Deal” at acweekly.com/poker.

Monterosso on air,CASINO In Print& RESORT (00TR; Nightlife Spotlight Name: TROPICANA Width: 4.9375 in; Depth: 10.88 in; Color: Black plus three One of southern New Jersey’s ... heck, one of the east coast’s foremost authorities on all things beer, Gary monterosso, was joined by a packed house of local and national brewing and culinary personalities Tuesday night, Nov. 29, at House of blues’ Foundation room. The event celebrated the Upper deerfield Township resident’s appearance on the new History channel special “The epic History of everyday Things,” which aired Tuesday at 9pm, and announced his soon-to-be-released debut book, Artisan Beer. An award-winning writer for several national and regional brew publications, and the webcast producer of the series “Still crazy After All These beers,” monterosso’s book (visit burfordbooks.com), examines the complexity, variety and sophistication of today’s craft-brew renaissance. It informs the reader of the various styles of beer, from ales and lagers to porters and stouts, discusses the pairing of beer with food, and details a “dream team” case of 24 beers every beer lover must find and try.

Gifts for the Foodie

A number of local shops and bakeries cater to the holiday-gift buyer. By Frank Gabriel

DECEMBER 1, 2011 • ATLANTIC CITY WEEKLY

OT A FINICKY FOOD FANATIC on your holiday shopping list? If so, please allow us to suggest a few local spots to pick up a culinary treat or cooking implement that’s certain to impress. Let’s begin at what is perhaps the most holiday-conducive environment locally, the historic town of Smithville. This time of year, it’s worth a trip to this northern Atlantic County community just to stroll about the charming, eclectic shops and eateries ringing Lake Meone. And if a chocolate lover happens to be on your shopping list, all the better. Anchoring the Village Green section of stores you’ll find Sweet Things (615 Moss Mill Rd., store #94, 652-2888), a true emporium of everything cocoarelated. Chocolate-covered strawberries, blueberries, grapes and bananas are made inhouse daily. Gourmet pretzels, specially done for the store, are double-dipped in high-quality Belgium chocolate, then rolled with a variety of toppings like toffee crunch, nonpareils and peanut butter chips. Along with hundreds of other chocolates and candy, they’ll even custom prepare goodies for events like birthdays, weddings and other celebrations. Just a few hundred yards away, you’ll find another unique specialty provider, Cooks Corner (3 N. New York Rd., #12,748-9030). This one-stop shop offers a wide variety of coffees, teas, foods and kitchen gadgets. Looking for authentic Jamaican blue

Just the kind of baked goods you’ll want to serve at your holiday party or corporate event. This time of year, they also create specialty items like pumpkin cannolis, biscotti, poinsettia and wreath breads plus customized holiday baskets. If you’re in search of catering, check out Formica’s extensive line of sandwich and snack trays, all with colorful names like “Don Cheech,” “Goomba” and “The Super Mario.” Hidden at the rear of a tiny strip mall, Christine’s Italian Pastries (316 Tilton Rd., Northfield, 646-5666) creates artisanal pies, cannolis, chocolatedipped pretzels and candy. But for our money, the best bets here are a spectacular chocolate mousse cheesecake or authentic Italian rum cakes. Should you be in search of a hard-tofind piece of culinary hardware, we’ll close this column with two Cape May county businesses to consider, Ocean City’s Kitchen Connection (701 Asbury Ave., 398-4111) and Cape May’s Love the Cook (404 Washington St., 8849292). The latter is a particular favorite of chefs from that culinary mecca, vending a selection of gourmet fare — house-roasted coffees, loose leaf tea, spices and herbs — in addition to kitchen tools like mandoline slicers, mezzalunas and mortar/pestle sets.

Do a Good Deed While Dining Deliciously

in a homemade marinade, slow-cooked, and served with rice, beans, and sweet plantains. Or take a bite out of the grouper, steamed in a banana leaf and served over coconut nice. If that doesn’t catch your fancy than get a load of this: homemade chips (cut from the house-made empanada dough to order) with green salsa. And with a BYO option, you can choose the drink of your choice (and desired price) to go along with your meal. With art displays changing monthly and fresh, local seafood (including Jersey lobster, mussels, and black sea bass) coming in daily there’s always something new to check out. So forget just going out to dinner, go to Mangos and get a taste of something they’re not serving anywhere else. — Katarina Corda

Get up, get out, and go to a restaurant that’s getting creative for a good cause. Feed your stomach and your soul at Mangos of Margate, where art abounds on the walls and in the kitchen. This Latin-fusion restaurant is serving up authentic South American cuisine made solely from scratch using local, organic ingredients and combining flavors as vibrant as the mango-colored walls. After you’ve gotten a glimpse of the menu (and wiped up the drool), take a look at the artwork decorating the walls around you. The pieces, all by local artists, are available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. With World AIDS Day (Dec. 1) upon us, there’s never been a better time to save the world while you dine — and with deliciously light prices (nothing on the menu over $20), satisfying your stomach and your wallet just got a whole lot easier. Take a look at these culinary creations and try to tell us your taste buds aren’t begging you to get moving. The Braised Jerk Chicken, one of the most popular dishes, is soaked

‘Caesars Tribute II: A Salute to the Ladies of the Ice’ features some of the greatest figure skaters of the last 25 years, past and present. By Michael Pritchard

d e c e m b e r 1 , 2 0 1 1 • A T L A N T I C C I T Y W EE K L Y

here’s a certain hold that figure skaters have on the American conscious — especially female skaters. Come the Winter Olympics, the country seems to rally around the top female U.S. figure skater and accept them into their hearts. Even the most macho, truck-driving guys watch and feel the pain of every slip or a fall and the excitement of every successful triple salchow. And regardless of the medal they win, or if they win one at all, they are skating stars forever. Star skaters can enjoy long careers in skating shows that tour the country long after they’ve stopped competing. The basic strategy is to grab one or two of these stars to headline, maybe dress another skater up like Snoopy and you have a show. But what if you put together a show with a bunch of stars? You know, like say 10 or 11. Say a line-up that includes such iconic American skaters as Olympic gold medalists Tara Lipinski and Sarah Hughes and silver medalists Nancy Kerrigan (also holder of a bronze medal) and Sasha Cohen, as well as the return to the ice of Nicole Bobek, 1995 U.S. Champion. Then throw in some international flair with Canada’s Joannie Rochette (2010 Olympic Bronze medalist) and Liz Manley (1988 Olympic silver medalist), Russia’s Irina Slutskaya (two-time Olympic medalist) and Japan’s Shizuka Arakawa (2006 Olympic gold medalist), Yuka Sato (1994 World Champion) and Miki Ando (two time and current world champion). That’s the line-up for the Caesars Tribute II: A Salute to the Ladies of the Ice to be held at Boardwalk Hall on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 7:30pm. And for good measure, the event will include a tribute to 1968 Olympic gold medalist Peggy Fleming, the most iconic of all U.S. skaters, though she is not scheduled to skate. Last year’s inaugural Caesars event featured almost as impressive a line-up, including some male champions, and it’s clear an early December skating tradition is being born in Atlantic City. “It’s an honor to be in the show,” says Kerrigan, who also performed at last year’s event and spoke to Atlantic City Weekly by telephone from her home near Boston. “I mean last year was amazing because I got to work with people I had known either through skating or through doing TV commentary, but never together all at the same time. So it was like a big giant reunion.

‘This really is an opportunity to see some of the greatest skaters in the world.’

“But this year will be a little different I think in that some of the skaters don’t really speak English all that well,” she laughs. “So it’ll be a little different. But I think in both cases it’s nice because you’re amongst people who have all been through a lot of the same stuff to get to the top of our sport. So we have a lot in common in some respects. This really is an opportunity to see some of the greatest skaters in the world.” Kerrigan, of course, has kept tabs on the skating world both as an athlete and as a television commentator. “It’ll be a very different scenario because I’m not coming at them with a microphone saying, ‘How do you feel after that performance?’” she says. “And it’s nice to come together and just support each other and have a good time and not feel any pressure from the presence of one another. I mean there’s no judging. There’s nothing intimidating about it. It’s just a chance to come together and perform as a group.” Of special interest to Kerrigan will be the tribute to Fleming, hosted by Dick Button. “Peggy helped to open doors for all of the younger skaters that followed,” says Kerrigan. “I think she and Billie Jean King put female athletes on the map. They helped to change things. Without Peggy Fleming we wouldn’t be on TV. It’s nice to be able to say ‘Thank you.’” Of course, for the 42-year-old Kerrigan, skating in a major show does require some special effort.

“Obviously, I have to work pretty hard to get ready,” she says. “I’m actually doing a show [before the Caesars Show], because once they know I’m doing one it’s like ‘Oh good. Can Nancy do this and can Nancy do that?’ And I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. I have three kids!’ So I have to be picky. I’m basically a full-time mom.” Kerrigan also has been struggling with a hip injury, but she says the point of shows like the Caesars tribute is to celebrate skating, something she still loves to do. “It’s not nearly as intensive as competition,” she says. “I don’t try to do triple jumps everywhere. I have to face reality ... But it is entertainment. We want to get out there and be entertaining and we want the audience to be able to sit in their seats — not on the edge of their seats worried that we’re going to fall all the time — but to be entertained and have a good time and enjoy the show and forget their worries for a little while. Of course Kerrigan could use a break herself as her family had to endure a long legal battle surrounding her father’s death last year, allegedly after a violent struggle with her brother, which the family denied. He was eventually acquitted of manslaughter charges. “This isn’t about me,” she says when asked about the trial earlier this year. “This is about this wonderful event and supporting skating. We all love our sport.” Just as we all love our champion skaters. n

that’s not going to make them look their best.” The Nutcracker is the story of a young girl named Clara, the nutcracker she receives as a gift, and her enchanted dreams of princes, princesses, sugar plums and toy soldiers. One of its best-known scenes is the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy — a particular favorite among children. “We get a lot of families at each performance,” says Papa. “The Nutcracker’s a good first exposure to the ballet. You don’t have to think too much about it, you’re just entertained. And I think in today’s world, people just want to be entertained. They don’t want to think too hard about anything.” Atlantic City Ballet’s The Nutcracker will appear at Stockton’s PAC on Friday, Dec. 9, at 10:30am (a show for school children only) and 7pm.; and Saturday, Dec. 10, at 1pm and 5pm. Tickets are $35 for orchestra and $20 for mezzanine ($5 less for seniors) and $10 for children with an adult ticket. n

ATLANTIC CITY WEEKLY • DECEMBER 1, 2011

UST AS SCARY MASKS ARE STAPLES of the Halloween scene, The Nutcracker is fundamental to every holiday season and has been part of the Atlantic City Ballet’s annual repertoire since its foundation in 1982. The two-act, Tchiakovsky-scored ballet, created in 1892 and first popularized during the holidays by Russian choreographer George Balanchine in 1954, returns to Richard Stockton College under the direction of A.C. Ballet’s founder, choreographer and artistic director Phyllis Papa. “Our first Nutcracker was at Harrah’s [casino] and we couldn’t do the whole thing because we didn’t have enough money,” says Papa, who employs over 20 professional dancers and several local school children in every production. “We could only do act two. The following year Claridge [casino, now part of Bally’s] gave me $5,000 for the costumes and sets to do act one. Coincidentally the Baltimore Ballet had just had a fire, and was selling all of its Nutcracker sets and costumes for $5,000, so my husband and I drove down with a truck, bought them, and drove them back. “They smelled a little smokey at first, but that allowed us to do the entire production. That was our first Nutcracker. Some of the set design we still use today, like the cannon, is from the Baltimore Ballet.” Papa tends tweak the choreography each year, particularly in act two, playing up the strengths of every dancer she employs. “Some dancers find it harder to do a lift one way and easier to do it another way, and I work with that and change it up a little bit,” she says. “Because everyone is so individual I want to hit their strengths. I don’t want to make them do something

Revered tenor saxophonist, musician, historian and jazz educator Hassan Abdullah died early Wednesday morning, Nov. 23. By Jeff Schwachter

E

arly Wednesday morning, Nov. 23, Atlantic City’s revered musician, music historian and educator Hassan Abdullah died at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. The cause of death was cardiac arrest. Stanley Barber (Abdullah’s birth name) wasn’t born in Atlantic City, but moved to the city in 1954 as a young child with his family from Virginia, where he was born, in Norfolk. Known by his Muslim name — Hassan Abdullah — he was loved by many in the Atlantic City community and beyond, and performed regularly in the area with various groups including his own Hassan Abdullah Sextet that featured Angela Burton as vocalist. Abdullah also played with Burton in Motown Groove, which played the sounds of Motown. Along with playing with his own Sextet, as well as smaller versions of his admired jazz band, Abdullah also had a role with the group Angela Burton and Passion. While serving as the group’s musical director, he also played keyboards and saxophone. He was also the producer on the group’s various recording projects. Abdullah’s most recent performance with Angela Burton and Passion was on Aug. 13, 2011 at the Rebirth of Kentucky Avenue Renaissance Festival in Atlantic City. “That day Hassan expressed to me that he was proud of the fact that I was still alive being that I was one of the female vocalists to have performed at the renowned [and former] Club Harlem,” Burton tells Atlantic City Weekly. Abdullah performed several times in the weeks before his death. On Nov. 5, he played a gig at Bogart’s Bookstore in Millville. His friend Sandy Warren, of Atlantic City, says he loved the venue and that he was an avid reader, writer and “lover of all things literary.” His last major public performance, however, was an appearance on Nov. 10 with the R&B group Judah Dorrington and Paradise. The group was performing at the Mays Landing Country Club for the Art Dorrington Ice Hockey Foundation’s 14th Annual Installation and Awards Dinner. “He also did a few smaller gigs,” in November, according to Burton. “Although he is known as a jazz musician and historian, Hassan loved classical music as well,” writes Atlantic City’s Hassan Like us:

Around 3am Abdullah said he felt a shortness of breath and soon after passed out. Burton called 911 and Abdullah was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. Warren says that she received a call from Burton and arrived at the hospital around 4:15am. Warren says she figured she’d find Abdullah in his hospital bed, and would try to cheer him up. Upon entering his hospital room, however, Warren says that the doctors told her and Burton that Abdullah had died of cardiac arrest. “He had no known history of heart or breathing probThe late musician playing in Atlantic lems,” says Warren. “This is a City in September at an event honoring big shock for everybody.” Chris Columbo, held at the Asbury United Along with sharing musical Methodist Church. experiences for more than 30 years together, Abdullah and Burton performed together on U.S.O. tours overseas during words of respect and favor you have the 1990s for the United States offered.

His primary influences were the jazz saxophonists Sonny Stitt and Hank Mobley and he enjoyed digging into their music and performing their songs. One of his compositions is called “Blues for Stitt.” This September, Abdullah participated in a birthday celebration of the late Atlantic City jazz icon and former Club Harlem house band drummer Chris Columbo at the Asbury United Methodist Church in Atlantic City for a Jazz Vespers event. Burton also sang at the gig, in celebration of what would have been Columbo’s 109th birthday. It was a special concert for Burton and Abdullah as the late Chris Columbo was Burton’s godfather. Abdullah lived in New York City for a stint before returning to Atlantic City, where he worked for 16 years as a security guard at the city’s hospital, now called AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. “When I walked in at 4:15 [Wednesday] morning,” says Warren, “the security guards knew who I was there to see. So many staff from the hospital came in to see him. They were so loving and treated him with such dignity.” Warren only first met Abdullah this past February, during a Jazz Corner event at the Chelsea, but the two hit it off, according to Warren. “I was doing a book signing at the event,” says Warren, “and Hassan’s band was playing. From that moment on we were always at each other’s gigs and did our gigs together pretty much.” Warren would soon take on booking some shows for Abdullah and doing some PR work for him. “I’ve lost one of the best friends I’ve ever had,” Warren says. Musicians from Cape May up to Atlantic City and Philadelphia had a supreme respect for the late jazz musician. He played with an assortment of local musicians, including trumpet player Joe Breidenstine, bassist Tim Lekan and many others. “He was adored by other musicians and everybody who played with him was kicked up a notch and vice versa, because he only played with the best musicians,” says Warren. “He was a perfectionist and a professional and he so sincerely loved the music and the musicians.” Warren says photos were recently Photo by Nastassia Davis

taken of Abdullah for his press kit and that he was also about to reenter the recording studio. “He did some recordings, but he was such a perfectionist that he was never satisfied with them,” says Warren. “He wouldn’t even let me use them as demos to get gigs. He was, however, just about to go back into the studio and take another crack at it.” Warren adds that the Somers Point Jazz Society is planning a memorial concert to honor Abdullah’s gifts to music and the region as well as his legacy and spirit. “The music was Hassan and Hassan was the music,” says Warren. “He put his music first and he was such a perfectionist. It was such an honor for musicians to play with him. Music was not a hobby for Hassan; it was his life. He was a professional.” Abdullah, a noted jazz historian, who did several programs in conjunction with the Atlantic City Free Public Library as well as the Ocean City Public Library over the years, was also working on two books before he died. “Hassan’s knowledge and expertise went well beyond music,” says Burton. “He was currently writing two books. One was about capitalism and what his research was pointing out as its inevitable demise, and another about time travel.” Burton, who says that Abdullah was “more like a brother and not simply a friend,” adds: “He [also] spoke seven languages fluently that included German and Arabic which, unlike many languages that we are familiar with, uses totally different letters and is written and read from right to left. These are some of his many talents. His biggest gift to Atlantic City and the world is that he was kind, concerned, and helpful to all who knew him.” That last remark is illustrated by the many comments that his friends and loved ones have been leaving on the online version of this story at acweekly.com, including this one left by Willie Dawson: “Besides having had the privilege of performing and writing with Hassan during [mid-1980s] Stockton days, I was also on the night shift at A.C. Medical Center while he was the guard. The same beautiful spirit and courteous style we enjoyed from his music was evident in the kindness he showed frightened, injured people looking for help on a bad night. If you had trouble, Hassan was the man you wanted.” n

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ expresses the filmmaker’s passion for the magic of the movies. By Lori Hoffman

F

Like us:

SATurdAy, dECEMbEr 17 12pM – 2:30pM Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ sequence that takes us from the streets of Paris to the inside of the station, one senses that scorsese wants to prove that he has learned his lessons well from the filmmakers who came before him. While Butterfield does a fine job as the determined Hugo, the film in many ways belongs to kingsley who is brilliant. You feel his anguish at being passed by as movies evolved, but also the glimmer of hope that emerges when Hugo’s passion reignites his own capacity to love his work again. There are also fine performances in smaller roles by Christopher lee as a bookshop owner, emily mortimer as the flower shop owner, Helen mcCrory as mrs. mèliès and Boardwalk Empire’s michael stuhlbarg as a film historian. This film is a must see for film buffs and anyone else who has ever been enchanted by the power of the movies.

Muppets Return

The muppets are likely too old-school for today’s kids. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t love the silliness of these magical puppets who are back in the movie The Muppets, a story that feels like a muppet remake of the Blues Brothers with its road trip to round up the gang and put on a big show to save the muppet studio from the evil clutches of a slimy oil baron (Chris Cooper). actor-writer Jason segel, an admitted muppet super fan, wrote the screenplay and stars opposite amy adams. He happily plays a supporting role and lets a new generation be introduced to kermit, miss Piggy, fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and animal, whose anger management class with Jack Black couldn’t fully suppress his wild side. it’s a ton of fun for little kids and their parents who grew up watching the muppets. n

or filmmakers and all passionate movie buffs everywhere, there is likely a moment that first sparked that devotion. With the family film Hugo, martin scorsese, who is not only one of the world’s finest filmmakers but also a noted film historian and film preservationist, unleashes his devotion to the magic of movies with a zeal that is enchanting. Based on the children’s book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian selznick, with a screenplay by John logan, the titled character (played by asa Butterfield) is an orphan who lives in the bowels of a train station in 1930s Paris. When his clockmaker father (Jude law) died, he became the ward of his uncle Claude (ray Winstone), a thoughtless drunk who teaches the boy how to do his job, keeping the station clocks running, then disappears. Hugo has learned how to survive, stealing food as needed and keeping an eye out for the station inspector (sacha Baron Cohen) with a bad leg and a fierce doberman who delights in catching orphans and sending them to the orphanage. Hugo and his father had been working on a major project, a discarded automaton, a mechanical man that they were fixing together. Hugo is determined to finish the project. To do so he needs parts and the toy store at the station had been a treasure trove of gears and wheels — until the day when the toyshop owner Georges (Ben kingsley) catches him in the act. Georges is a bitter, angry man, but when he finds a notebook among Hugo’s belongings, he decides not to turn him over to the inspector. from this moment the movie moves forward from its dickensian tale of a waif alone among the bustle of the train station and into a magical realm of fantasy and movie magic. With the help of Georges’ adventure-seeking goddaughter isabelle (played by Kick Ass star Chloë Grace moretz) Hugo learns how wonderful it is to have friends. and in turn, his evolving relationship with Georges begins to siphon the bitterness out of the old man who had spent decades ignoring his past as one of the pioneers of filmmaking. Georges is Georges mèliès, a magician and artist who invented the fantasy film as his notable contribution to the history of cinema, in particular his 1902 masterpiece A Trip to the Moon. Because of its storyline about a masterful pioneer of cinema, this feels like scorsese’s most personal film to date. and from the first shot, a gorgeous opening tracking
