While touring with a local rock band in the late 60s, he was stranded by the promoter in Vietnam. He and the band spent two years performing for the troops in Vietnam and Thailand before returning to Hawai'i. The experience left him with a lasting commitment to peace, a deep appreciation for life, compassion and aloha (love) for all people—themes that continue to resonate in his music.

He soared to the forefront of Hawaiian music in the 1970s with the duo Cecilio & Kapono, becoming the first Hawaiian group to achieve a national recording contract (Columbia Records). Together they recorded 14 albums and gave contemporary and folk rock—and Hawaiian music—a new perspective. Henry was inducted into the Grammy Museum in 2017 for his work with Cecilio & Kapono.

Always musically adventurous, Henry launched a solo career in 1981, continuing to break new ground with his award-winning collaborations: The Wild Hawaiian in 2006, combining driving rock, poetry and Hawaiian chant; and Rough Riders in 2015, celebrating Hawai'i’s cowboys (paniolo). He is also the author of the award-winning children’s book, A Beautiful Hawaiian Day, and has appeared on television and in films. Henry Kapono is equally known for his community support and philanthropic endeavors. He launched the Henry Kapono Foundation in 2018 with a mission of supporting the community through music and the arts, and by giving with aloha.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS Henry Kapono Henry Kapono, a multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) award winner and Grammy nominee, has been at the creative forefront of contemporary Hawaiian music throughout his career. Called “one of the great island songwriters of his generation,” Henry is a Hawaiian music legend and one of Hawai‘i’s most popular recording artists.

Known as “Kapono,” the Hawaiian word for righteous, Henry is pure Hawaiian, born and raised in Kapahulu, a small town outside Waikiki. He started singing in a children’s church choir at age five. His athletic abilities earned him a baseball scholarship to the renowned Punahou Academy (President Obama’s alma mater) and a football scholarship to the University of Hawai‘i. Injuries prevented a football career but, profoundly, moved him toward his passion for music. He had no formal music training. “My dad taught me how to play the ‘ukulele,” says Henry. “I saw a friend of mine play a guitar one day and fell in love with the sound of it. He taught me a few chords, and I’ve been hooked ever since.” 6 | IRVINE BARCLAY THEATRE

Henry Kapono’s newest CD release, Welcome 2 My Paradise, marks Henry’s 20th solo album and his first Kapono release in four years. This special album shares Henry’s enduring aloha for his Hawaiian home. A long-awaited collection of 10 originals, it was inspired by his many fans throughout the world and was largely written while travelling.

“Welcome 2 My Paradise celebrates everything I feel about love, family, friends, travel, people and FUN! To be inspired and to celebrate every day and in every way is My Paradise! I take it with me everywhere and share it with everyone every chance I get. I’ve journeyed around the world and back, and the experiences have been priceless. It’s been a long train running and a crazy good ride. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am, fortunately, blessed and extremely grateful. Music has been my religion, my world, my Paradise.” — Henry Kapono

Duke’s on Sunday Band

Johnny Valentine (Vocals, Electric Guitar), one of Hawai'i’s most sought-after live musicians, was raised in Hawai'i and has spent most of his life performing in the heart of Waikiki. He launched his music career with his high school friend, Pat Miguel, in a duo known as Night Splendor. Generating a large and faithful following on the Waikiki circuit, the two eventually formed the Love Notes, the band that put


his nephew, Bruno Mars, on stage for the first time. The Love Notes became a Waikiki sensation, touring the U.S. and Japan. A versatile singer, Johnny has played in many of the classic Waikiki clubs. In 2018, he was voted a Favorite Entertainer at the Nā Hōkū Hanohano (Hawai'i’s Grammy) awards.

Jon Hawes (Vocals, Bass Guitar). Electric and upright bassist and composer, Jon Hawes was born in England and raised in Massachusetts. After earning a BA in Music from the University of Rochester, he spent many years touring the continental U.S. in various bands. He moved to O‘ahu in 2003, performing, touring and recording with a diverse collection of artists, including Henry Kapono (serving as bandleader since 2004), Mike Love, Michael McDonald, Mick Fleetwood, David Choi, Makana, among others. Active in the Honolulu jazz scene, he collaborates with some of Hawai'i’s finest musicians.

Konrad Kendrick (Vocals, Drums). Originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, Konrad Kendrick began his professional music career as a gospel drummer. In 1984, he joined Portrait, a top 40 R&B dance band, with which he toured the U.S., Asia and the Caribbean. Eventually making Hawai'i home, Konrad began performing with some of Hawai'i’s greatest entertainers. Open to all music genres, Konrad joined the international rhythm show, STOMP, performing in New York and on a national U.S. tour (followed by six years

with STOMP in Europe, travelling to nearly 50 countries). Konrad has returned to Hawai'i and performs a range of music: jazz, rock, Hawaiian, reggae, hip-hop, soul and R&B, using hand percussion, body percussion, acoustic and electronic drums. He endorses the Istanbul Mehmet cymbals. Martie Echito (Keyboards). Performing in rock bands since high school, Martie Echito went on the road with a touring band in the 1970s, a period that also found him writing songs and working as a studio musician for such artists as Stephen Stills, Rick Dees and Clifford T. Ward. Cecilio & Kapono recorded one of his songs at that time. A prolific songwriter, his music has been featured in two Amazon series, Red Oaks, An American Girl Story; a 2017 Netflix film starring Robert Redford, The Discovery; and a Showtime series, I’m Dying Up Here. He has produced music for jingles and film scores, including several surf films. In addition to joining Henry’s Welcome 2 My Paradise tour, Martie currently performs with four different bands, ranging from acoustic rock to music for kids.

Impact

Health & Wellness Health and well-being, for individuals and communities, is about being able to flourish and grow. The arts play a strong role, leading to better care, cost savings, and a better quality of life. As our understanding of healing, prevention, and next-generation practices and therapies evolve, it is clear that the arts offer promise in new and surprising ways.

Diversity & Equity The pursuit of equity seeks to improve conditions by addressing systems that can create equal opportunities for all. The arts bridge divides, open dialogues, and create understanding— and all three of those tools are essential in working toward diversity, access, equity, and inclusion.

Education Studies repeatedly show the positive effects on students when the arts are part of a well-rounded education. And learning doesn’t stop just when school does—at our best, humans are ceaselessly curious and constantly learning. The arts are a gateway to endless new ideas for exploration.

Technology & Innovation Arts and technology have always had a symbiotic relationship. Enhancing technological development with principles from creative and design processes drives innovation, and in turn new technologies are adapted and transformed by artists to create new art forms that challenge our world views and provide new ways of interacting with art.

ABOUT THE SHOW Twenty-five years ago, John Pizzarelli was the opening act on Frank Sinatra’s tour. This experience turned out to be one of the most exciting times of John’s life as it helped shape him into the entertainer he is today. Pizzarelli’s Salute to Sinatra show features intimate stories of his experiences on tour with Sinatra along with performances of songs that were specifically written for Sinatra by some of America’s greatest songwriters—songs that tell the stories of his personal life, such as “Witchcraft” and “Wee Small Hours,” along with a few iconic fan favorites, “The Way You Look Tonight” and “I’ve Got the World on a String.” Part of this tribute is dedicated to the infamous collaboration between Frank Sinatra and Antônio Carlos Jobim. 

JOHN PIZZARELLI

World-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Toronto Star pegged him as “the genial genius of the guitar.” And the Seattle Times saluted him as “a rare entertainer of the old school.”

Established as one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Pizzarelli has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim and the Beatles. His themed shows, often performed with his wife Jessica Molaskey, suggest there is no limit to Pizzarelli’s imagination or talent. In 2017, Pizzarelli returned to the bossa nova of Antônio Carlos Jobim with his Concord Jazz release Sinatra & Jobim@50. With co-vocalist Daniel Jobim, grandson of the legendary Brazilian composer, the two explored songs Sinatra and Jobim recorded in 1967 and 1969, as well as added new songs to the mix, flavored with the spirit of the classic Francis Albert Sinatra and Antônio Carlos Jobim album. For an artist The New York Times calls “one of the foremost interpreters of Jobim’s bossa nova classics,” the step was natural. “We had a very successful run in Brazil [in 2016] and my manager said you should think about making another Brazilian record,” Pizzarelli says referring to his 2004 release Bossa Nova. “I looked around at what would make sense in terms of an anniversary.”

Homing in on the Sinatra-Jobim sessions, John says, “We had an advantage: Daniel had performed a number of those things with us at the Café Carlyle two years earlier.” Like Sinatra and Jobim, who started their sessions in January 1967, Pizzarelli and company were finished in three days of recording—in January 2017. 14 | IRVINE BARCLAY THEATRE

Born on April 6, 1960, in Paterson, New Jersey, Pizzarelli has been playing guitar since age six, following in the tradition of his father, guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli. Hanging out with his father, John was exposed to all the great jazz music of the era, from Erroll Garner and Les Paul to Django Reinhardt. He began playing with his father at age 20, before going out on his own. Pizzarelli’s solo recording career started in 1990 with My Blue Heaven on Chesky Records. He played clubs and concert halls on the jazz circuit, opening for such greats as Dave Brubeck, Ramsey Lewis and Rosemary Clooney. In 1993, he was honored to open for Frank Sinatra’s international tour and then joined in the celebration for his 80th birthday at Carnegie Hall, bringing down the house singing “I Don’t Know Why I Love You Like I Do,” with his father accompanying him.

After recording albums for RCA devoted to torch ballads (After Hours), classic swing and bold originals (Our Love Is Here to Stay), holiday songs (Let’s Share Christmas) and the Fab Four (John Pizzarelli Meets the Beatles), Pizzarelli signed with Telarc International, a division of Concord Music Group. His string of successful albums started in 2000 with Kisses in the Rain, a diverse set of standards and original tunes that showcase the spontaneity of his live performances within a studio setting, followed by Let There Be Love. On his 2002 album, The Rare Delight of You, Pizzarelli teamed up with veteran pianist George Shearing. In the tradition of classic quintet-and-vocalist recordings, they lay down great standards (including “Be Careful, It’s My Heart,” “If Dreams Come True” and “Lost April”) as well as a couple of originals, all with vibrant arrangements. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the John Pizzarelli Trio along with pianist Ray Kennedy and bassist/brother Martin Pizzarelli, Live at Birdland was released in April 2003. This two-disc set seamlessly blends James Taylor folk with Gershwin and Van Heusen standards, in addition to original Pizzarelli compositions. After listening to the recording, a JazzTimes critic raved, “Spend five minutes with Pizzarelli and you’ll fully appreciate his inimitable warmth, humor and munificence of spirit.” In 2004, Pizzarelli made his first album of Brazilian music, Bossa Nova. Produced by Russ Titelman, the acclaimed disc features several Brazilian musicians, including drummer Paulo Braga, pianist César Camargo Mariano and vocalist Daniel Jobim. According to Billboard, “His performance throughout, as both vocalist and guitarist, is exceptional.” Knowing You, Pizzarelli’s 2005 release, pays homage to the many talented musicians and songwriters he’s met throughout his career, among them Jimmy McHugh, Sammy Cahn, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Johnny Mandel and Brian Wilson. The Associated Press called the disc “A classy, urbane session. The rich colors make this among the best of Pizzarelli’s albums.”


In addition to being a bandleader and solo performer, John has been a special guest on recordings for major pop names such as James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Kristin Chenoweth, Tom Wopat, Rickie Lee Jones and Dave Van Ronk, as well as leading jazz artists such as Rosemary Clooney, Ruby Braff, Johnny Frigo, Buddy DeFranco, Harry Allen and, of course, Bucky Pizzarelli. He was featured opposite Donna Summer, Jon Secada and Roberta Flack on the Grammy Awardwinning collection, Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Mr. Rogers in 2005.

In 2006, Telarc introduced Dear Mr. Sinatra, John’s tribute set to “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” featuring the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. The collection features John Clayton’s clever reworking of standards such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “You Make Me Feel So Young,” as well as songs written for Sinatra, “Ring-A-Ding-Ding!,” “Nice and Easy” and “The Last Dance.” The New York Times praised the recording for “exploding with enthusiasm and excitement.”

His 2008 recording, the Grammy Award nominated With a Song in My Heart, celebrates the music of composer Richard Rodgers and includes swinging Rodgers & Hart standards like “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Mountain Greenery” and “Johnny One Note” and theater songs from South Pacific and The King and I. The singer-guitarist’s first-ever Duke Ellington recording, Rockin’ in Rhythm, was released in February 2010.

Pizzarelli married songs from great pop songwriters of his own generation with traditional jazz arrangements and melodies. Double Exposure, released in 2012, united the Beatles and Lee Morgan, Tom Waits with Billy Strayhorn and the Allman Brothers Band with the style of Wes Montgomery. As he told The Wall Street Journal, “I asked myself a couple of questions: ‘How can we take the style we do and communicate it to people who grew up on Gershwin and people who grew up on the Beatles? How do we communicate jazz to the non-jazz listeners?’”

Pizzarelli’s Midnight McCartney had its origins in McCartney’s Grammy-winning 2012 album, Kisses on the Bottom. Pizzarelli played guitar on 10 of the album’s 14 tracks and backed Sir Paul at an iTunes concert at Capitol Records studios, the Grammy Awards and the Recording Academy’s annual MusiCares Person of the Year Gala. Fifteen months after those gigs, McCartney wrote to Pizzarelli to consider recording some of his lesser-known songs in a jazz style. The album hit a new chart high for John, reaching No. 4 on Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart.

A radio personality who got his start in the medium in 1984, Pizzarelli is co-host, alongside Jessica Molaskey, of Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli. Heard on more than 40 radio stations and on the Internet, the syndicated radio show brings warmth, humor and that long-lost “live” feel back to radio. The show takes place in their “deluxe living room high atop Lexington Avenue,” and the conversations are relaxed, candid and off-the-cuff, as is the music. The show is also available globally as a podcast at www.johnpizzarelli.com and via iTunes.

John has performed on America’s most popular national television shows such as The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Great Performances, as well as the talk shows of Jay Leno, David Letterman, Regis Philbin and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. In 1997, Pizzarelli made his Broadway debut in the musical Dream, a revue of Johnny Mercer songs. He led a 40-member live orchestra at Radio City Music Hall in Sinatra: His Voice, His World, His Way in 2003. His instructional DVD, Exploring Jazz Guitar—filled with demonstrations, lessons and anecdotes —is available from Hal Leonard. Pizzarelli received the 2009 Ella Fitzgerald Award from the Montreal International Jazz Festival, joining a select group of past winners, including Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett and Harry Connick Jr. This year, Pizzarelli will release For Centennial Reasons: 100 Year Salute to Nat King Cole. While plenty of jazz greats influenced his work—Benny Goodman, Les Paul, Zoot Sims, Clark Terry and Slam Stewart, among others—Cole has been Pizzarelli’s hero and foundation over the past 25 years. He devoted two albums to his music, Dear Mr. Cole in 1994 and P.S. Mr. Cole, recorded and released five years later. Now he honors the legendary singer with a selection of his classics. Pizzarelli continues to tour throughout the United States, Europe and Japan, performing classic pop, jazz and swing, while setting the standard for stylish modern jazz.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS Kathy Mattea Kathy Mattea has enjoyed the kind of success many artists only dream of: two Grammy wins, four CMA Awards, five gold albums, and a platinum collection of her greatest hits. Mattea’s dream almost ended, though, when she entered her 50s and found her voice changing. As much as she wanted to ignore the warning signs, there was no getting around the fact that she simply wasn’t hitting the notes she used to. Taking the stage and giving anything less than her best wasn’t an option, so as far as Mattea was concerned, there were only two choices: re-learn to sing, or walk away forever. “The hardest thing was facing the question of whether or not I could continue,” she reflects. “I had to be willing to come to a ‘no,’ to accept that my singing voice just might not be something I enjoyed anymore. There were days when I believed it was very likely I wouldn’t be able to go on.”

Mattea persevered, though, undergoing intensive vocal training and emerging with the most poignant album of her career, Pretty Bird. Recorded over the course of a year with roots music wizard Tim O’Brien at the helm, Pretty Bird draws its strength not only from Mattea’s touching performances, but also from her uncanny ability to weave seemingly disparate material into a cohesive whole. These are the songs that helped her reclaim her voice, and though they’re drawn from a wide swath of writers, genres and eras, she inhabits each as fully as if it were her own. Exquisitely arranged and delivered with the kind of nuance that can only come from a lifetime of heartbreak and triumph, the album is a welcome reintroduction to one of country and Americana music’s most enduring and beloved figures. 18 | IRVINE BARCLAY THEATRE

A West Virginia native, Mattea moved to Nashville in the late 1970s to pursue her goal of singing professionally. She signed her first record deal in 1983 and achieved modest chart success with a pair of early releases, but her true commercial breakout arrived with her critically acclaimed third album, Walk the Way the Wind Blows. That record produced her first radio hits, and its follow-up, 1987’s Untasted Honey, was the first of five Mattea releases to be certified gold. Untasted Honey contained back-to-back No. 1 country singles, as did 1989’s Willow in the Wind, which also earned back-to-back CMA Female Vocalist of the Year awards and a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance. The Los Angeles Times called Mattea “a performer of limitless potential,” while The Washington Post hailed her as “one of Nashville’s finest song interpreters,” and People described her as “warm, strong, smart and generally splendid.” Over the next three decades, she would record nearly a dozen more albums exploring country, folk, Celtic and gospel music; earn her second Grammy Award; top the Bluegrass Albums chart and garner an additional Grammy nomination for “Coal,” her Marty Stuart-produced exploration of coal mining songs; and collaborate with everyone from Jackson Browne to Townes Van Zandt.

By the time she entered her 50s, Mattea’s status as a legend was secure, but the one thing she’d always been able to rely on felt like it was in serious danger of slipping away. “I kept noticing this shaky quality in my voice,” she says. “I’d be onstage going for a note in a song I knew like the back of my hand and it wouldn’t come out. The way I knew how to sing just wasn’t working anymore.”

So began a years-long odyssey Mattea describes as her “dark night of the soul,” a trying time of personal anguish and professional uncertainty that threatened to silence her permanently. Some nights her voice would be there in all its glory; other nights, inexplicably, notes would lie just beyond her grasp. The harder she tried, the more she struggled, and Mattea was forced to reckon with the possibility that her career might be over. “I kept running from it, but eventually I realized I had to stop and deal with the issue head on,” she explains.

The classically-trained Mattea dove into an exhaustive regimen with a new, jazz-centric vocal coach, developing a fresh approach to singing and forcing herself to break habits she’d relied on for her entire career. Most importantly, she came to recognize the beauty in how her voice was changing. Age had helped open Mattea’s lower register like never before, and songs she’d previously shied away from suddenly came to new, vibrant life. “It was astounding to me,” she reflects. “That’s when I really felt this vocal rebirthing process, and it gave me great joy because there’s nothing that’s ever felt more right to me in my life than singing and making music.”


As her confidence returned, Mattea and her longtime guitarist/collaborator Bill Cooley decided to take their weekly living room jam sessions on the road, performing an extensive, stripped-down duo tour of unexpected material and old favorites. It took courage for Mattea to get back on stage in the midst of her vocal training, but the work paid off, and as she learned to let go of the idea of “perfection,” she stripped the power from the fear that had gripped her for so long and kept her from the stage. All that was left was to return to the studio. “I woke up in my bed at 2am one night and realized, ‘Oh my God. I have to call Tim O’Brien,’” Mattea remembers. “Tim is like a brother to me. We’ve worked together on each other’s records for years, and he’s one of the most comfortable, patient, safe people to collaborate with that I’ve ever known.”

While Pretty Bird certainly reflects that comfort, it also reflects the adventurous streak that’s long defined Mattea’s choice in song. The album opens with a playful take on Oliver Wood’s sultry “Chocolate on My Tongue” before moving seamlessly into a soulful rendition of Bobbie Gentry’s “Ode to Billie Joe.” The Mary Gauthier-penned “Mercy Now” finds Mattea offering up a tender prayer for understanding in these troubled times, while Joan Osborne’s “St. Teresa” takes on new life in light of the ravages that addiction has wrought on the singer’s home state. The arrangements on the album are earthy and organic, but its most affecting moments arrive in stripped-down songs like the British traditional “He Moves Through the Fair” and the arresting title track, a Hazel Dickens tune that boldly closes the record with Mattea’s rich, a cappella voice. It’s that voice that saved her, and it’s through singing Mattea hopes she can help others, too. “I think there’s something sacred in this secular act of lifting our voices together,” she explains. “When we sing together, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from or who you voted for. We’re all having the same experience and expressing ourselves the same way, and that’s where I want to plant my flag right now.” More than simply rejuvenating her career, recovering her voice presented Kathy Mattea with a new lease on her humanity. With an album as powerful as Pretty Bird, it’s clear she intends to make the most of it.

Bill Cooley (Guitar).”In what is surely one of the longest and musically richest partnerships in Nashville, Bill Cooley has been playing guitar in Kathy Mattea’s band for 20 years.” So wrote the dean of Nashville’s music critics, Robert K. Oermann, eight years ago. As Kathy and Bill start their 28th year together, they are on the road with a new band in support of Kathy’s latest release, Pretty Bird, playing new material they’ve worked up at their regular Thursday afternoon rehearsals, as well as her classic hits and requests.

Bill has had a 40-year career as a working professional, and recently released his 4th solo CD, In Search of Home, which was named to Premier Guitar magazine’s Editor’s List. Originally from Santa Barbara, California, he moved to Nashville in 1985, and a dozen years later was called “one of Nashville’s most respected sidemen” by Guitar Player magazine. He has toured and recorded with Merle Haggard, Reba McEntire, Alan Jackson and Hal Ketchum, in addition to Kathy. As a songwriter, he’s had cuts by Kathy and Reba, among others. As an arranger, Bill has played an important role on Kathy’s albums, including the Grammy-nominated Coal, and 2013’s Calling Me Home, where Kathy explored her Appalachian heritage. After two years of intense work, Kathy and Bill have just recorded Pretty Bird, with Tim O’Brien producing. Their partnership continues; it is still musically rich, creative, and stronger than ever, 28 years on.

Fred Carpenter (Fiddle, Mandolin) started in music with 10 years of classical violin, switched to fiddling at age 17, and recorded his first solo fiddle album with Mark O’Connor at age 20. In 1982, he joined the Tony Rice Unit, touring for several years and recording two albums. Fred has called Nashville home for 30 years, and during this time has toured with several artists, including Emmylou Harris, George Strait, Ronnie Milsap, Suzy Bogguss, Paul Overstreet, and of course, Kathy Mattea! In 1988, Fred also started a small Violin Shop in Nashville, offering instrument repair, restoration, sales, rentals, and in general, all things fiddle!! Now celebrating 30 years, The Violin Shop has become the place to go for fiddlers everywhere. Fred has toured with Kathy whenever possible over the past 12 years in several configurations, including the 7-piece band, the Christmas tour, concerts with symphony orchestras, and as a quartet… or 2… or 3! Eric Frey (Bass). Hailing from Clay, Alabama, Eric’s style was forged in the campfires of countless bluegrass festivals and jams that his Dad (also a bass player) used to drag him to. On his 22nd birthday, he moved to Louisiana to join The Red Stick Ramblers, and ventured the globe playing their brand of Cajun gypsy swing. Since then, he has played on over 50 recordings, including six Grammy nominated albums, notably Linda Ronstadt and Ann Savoy’s 2006 record, Adieu False Heart, and The Band Courtbouillon’s self-titled recording, which won the Best Regional Roots category in 2012. He received a nomination for his work on The Revelers’ album, Get Ready. His songs have been used in television and film, including HBO’s Treme, in which he also appeared as an actor in three seasons. These days, you can find him in Nashville playing gigs in any style imaginable, remodeling houses, and playing old-time banjo with his fiddling wife, Clelia.
