HELP US CELEBRATE OUR 15th SEASON AS A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION
 
BECOME A MEMBER TODAY!
 
WELCOME BACK TO THE CALIFORNIA JAZZ ARTS SOCIETY
 
Incorporated as The California Jazz Arts Society (CalJAS) in January 2005, we now  begin our 15th season as a nonprofit presenting and promoting jazz in intimate settings.
 
In addition to our continuing schedule of House Concerts, CalJAS in 2019 will continue and expand our collaboration with Claremont Presbyterian Church including the
well received Jazz Vespers series featuring Debbi Ebert and the Ron Kobayashi Trio.  Additionally, we are working out details to add a limited CalJAS PRESENTS series at this venue. CalJAS and CPC are also making plans to schedule jazz clinics for high schoolers, as well as adults.
 
We are excited to announce that CalJAS at The Magic Castle will continue during the summer of 2019 but will move to Tuesdays. Those of you who have attended any of the past 25 concerts know how special these events are. 
Dates will be announced soon!
 
Once again, we will be encouraging you to renew your membership for 2019, and to help spread the word in order to recruit new members and contributors. One of our continuing goals is to identify and welcome the business community to our CalJAS family as Platinum Sponsors, Benefactors, or underwriters for our programs and scholarships, and to stay ahead of increased expenditures.
We hope you can please help us in that endeavor

*Harry Warren (born Salvatore Antonio Guaragna, December 24, 1893 – September 22, 1981) was an American composer and lyricist. Warren was the first major American songwriter to write primarily for film. He was nominated for the Academy Award for BestSong eleven times and won three Oscars for composing Lullaby of Broadway“, “You’ll Never Know” and “On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe“. 
He wrote the music for the first blockbuster film musical, 42nd Street, choreographed by Busby Berkeley, with whom he would collaborate on many musical films.
Over a career spanning four decades, Warren wrote more than 800 songs. Other well known Warren hits included “I Only Have Eyes for You“, “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby“, “Jeepers Creepers“, “The Gold Diggers’ Song (We’re in the Money)“, “That’s Amore“, “The More I See You“, “At Last and Chattanooga Choo Choo“.

About Larry

Larry’s accomplishments include two award-winning, world jazz releases First Move and View From Afar (LarrySteen.com) – solo projects which feature Ernie Watts, Dave Weckl, Robben Ford and Russell Ferrante. He has also recorded on a plethora of other artists’ albums, as well as for film, TV and radio, including the nationally syndicated, radio show Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. In addition, he has performed with world-renown artists Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Dionne Warwick, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Barry Manilow, Melissa Manchester and Jimmy Buffet, among others. Larry’s formal education includes a Master of Fine Arts from California Institute of the Arts (CALARTS), as well as a Bachelor of Music from the University of Miami after attending the Berklee College of Music. He is a first place winner of the esteemed International Society of Bassists’ Jazz Competition.

About Nikki

Nikki has contributed lead and background vocals for countless bands and productions – both live and in studio settings, has sung and danced in many large-scale musical theater productions, performed in multiple lounges, restaurants and private parties locally, and has toured Europe, the South Pacific and the Caribbean making music. Her career evolved out of extensive training and work not only as a vocalist, but as an actress and dancer in Los Angeles. She is a long-time member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors’ Equity with numerous film and television credits, earned a scholarship from the popular and prestigious Duprée Dance Academy in Los Angeles and has segued that expertise and other training into work in the fitness industry (Steenfit.me). Sip of Soul is her first self-produced project, and she is thrilled to collaborate with her husband, bassist Larry Steen, arranging, writing and making music that comes from the “soul.”
