Murali Coryell Band Celebrating the CD release of Restless Mind

MURALI CORYELL's RESTLESS MIND showcases an an artist ever seeking, ever growing -- an artist at the top of his game. "I' feel I'll never be free/Till I can be just who I am/I've got a Restless Mind/Can't be satisfied/Won't you try to understand?" (from the title cut, "Restless Mind")...

"Yes, Murali Coryell is Larry's kid. But to leave it at that would be doing a disservice to the son. He's a fine player who doesn't play jazz, but a blues-soul hybrid that suits his playing and his gravelly, soulful singing to a T...soul music with Coryell's twist that's allowed to expand even as the song is being played. No doubt dad is proud of his kid and the path he's chosen." (John Heidt/Vintage Guitar)

"Murali - which translates from Sanskrit to `divine flute' - sounds like his own man - someone who has taken far more from Carlos Santana, Otis Redding...and Hendrix than he ever did from Miles, Dizzy or Dad. He mixes and matches like an enthusiastic chef, and stirs it up just as much." (Nick DeRiso/Something Else! Reviews)

Shake-It-Sugar Records is proud to announce the release of singer/guitarist/songwriter MURALI CORYELL's RESTLESS MIND on August 19, 2014.

Coryell's first studio recording since his acclaimed 2009 release Sugar Lips, RESTLESS MIND was produced by Murali Coryell and recorded at Mesa Recording Studios in Austin, TX. RESTLESS MIND features 11 Coryell originals plus a funked up re-imagining of the Marvin Gaye classic "Let's Get It On", a song Coryell's performed live for the past 20 years. Joining Coryell (guitars/vocals) in the studio are Ernie Durawa (drums), Chris Alcaraz (bass), Joe Morales (saxophone) and Jimmy Shortell (trumpet).

Son of jazz-rock fusion guitar legend Larry Coryell and author/actress Julie Coryell, contemporary soul blues artist Murali Coryell grew up surrounded by great music - by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Carlos Santana. Murali began playing drums at age 8 and continued through junior high school. He started playing guitar after discovering the blues in his early teens. "I was into the music of Led Zeppelin, particularly a minor blues tune called 'Since I've Been Loving You'. My dad told me if I wanted to hear some REAL blues to get B.B. King's 'Live At The Regal' which to this day, I consider one of the greatest recordings ever made. The emotion and sadness in B.B. King's voice and guitar really spoke to me. That's When I first picked up a guitar." He took lessons for a while but picked up most of what he learned from listening to the music of other blues guitar greats...besides B.B., from early Clapton, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix and Albert King.

The big turning point in Murali's musical career came at age 15 when he attended the National Guitar Summer Workshop in Connecticut. "For the first time in my life I got serious about my music. I started playing all the time. I got into jazz." He joined a jazz ensemble at college, studied classical guitar and graduated with a degree in music theory and composition. He founded a soul/blues band, The Ambassadors, in upstate New York in the late '80s. The band quickly became a regional favorite in New York's Hudson Valley area. In the summer of '94, while a faculty member at the Guitar Workshop, Murali met Duke Robillard who was teaching a master class. "Robillard heard me sing at a concert and asked to sit in with my band. He called me a month later and hired me as second guitarist for his upcoming world tour. He featured me on a couple of vocal tunes, Ray Charles' 'I Got A Woman' and Albert King's 'The Hunter'". Soon after, Murali was signed by the fledgling Big Mo Records label as a solo artist resulting in his Stax/Volt influenced debut CD, Eyes Wide Open In 1999 Murali recorded 2120 for Marshall Chess' CZYZ label. Rolling Stone magazine named Murali "One promising new hound". Since that time he's released several albums including 2003's Strong As I Need To Be, 2005's The Future Of Blues, the solo acoustic album Don't Blame It On Me in 2007, 2008's The Same Damn Thing and 2009's Sugar Lips as well as a collaboration with his father Larry and brother Julian The Coryells (2000/Chesky Records). Murali's 2013 CD/DVD LIVE was nominated for a 2014 BMA for "DVD of the Year". In November 2013, Murali Coryell was inducted in the NY State Blues Hall Of Fame.

In additon to performing with his own group, Murali has toured as a featured artist with award winning bluesman Joe Louis Walker and his father, jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell.

SPEAKERS


KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Dr. Sandy Roth is a skilled communicator who founded ProSynergy in 1987. She partnered with MaryBeth Head in 1999. MaryBeth holds a BA in promotion. Sandy's educational background includes a BA in Psychology and completion of PhD coursework in Systems Psychology. The development of Sandy's skills began on the streets of Philadelphia, where she served as a police officer while Doug, her husband now of 44 years, attended Temple University Dental School. Those skills were challenged in graduate school and  sharpened during her years in the political cauldron of Washington, DC. Doug's dental practice offered the next setting for her learning when she joined him in 1981. They achieved a high level of mastery in leadership, team building and organizational development that continues today in their Brooksville, Florida practice. These credentials add a depth to ProSynergy that ensures that clients have support in many substantive areas.

Dentists have been relying on Sandy to help them create behaviorally sophisticated practices for over 28 years. She inspires dentists to think differently, challenges archaic ideas and quick fix solutions. Sandy promotes the concept of facilitation and helps practices learn how to become more effective with patients. With her support, dentists can create a highly functioning and successful practice based on an understanding and application for communication and behavioral skills. Her focus on communication covers non-clinical areas of the practice-leadership, hiring, team development, patient relations and internal and external communications. You can be certain that you will discover ideas and perspectives of profound impact that can change the quality of your practice and your life.

Course: COVER YOUR A$$ETS - 2 AGD Credits 

Dentistry is more complex now than ever and our doctors no longer practice just dentistry. The industry is multidimensional and even small practices need to be experts at business, sales, human resources, legal, regulatory compliance and more.

There are so many questions to be answered: Are you committing insurance fraud without knowing it? Are you doing the required annual risk assessments? Does anyone know about that little mistake you let slip through? Will your record keeping help you or put you behind bars? Will the regulatory fines be more than your retirement fund? Ultimately, the most important question is:  Should you be sleeping soundly at night?

This presentation is designed to put your mind at ease and outline three big risk areas: mis-management, employees and OSHA.

Course:  Transforming Staff into a TEAM. Effective Patient Communication of Dental Implants & Digital Technology - 2 AGD Credits

3D digital technology for the planning, placement, and restoration of dental implants has never been more predictable and exciting. The dental TEAM can be the most untapped resource in a dental practice. How often has the dentist made a dental implant therapy recommendation to a patient only for that patient to then turn to the hygienist, dental assistant, or front desk and ask them: “What do you think?” An impactful, educated consistent answer to that question by all the members of the TEAM can dramatically impact case acceptance for optimal treatment for missing teeth, and practice growth. To maximize this significant practice growth opportunity for the dental practice, it is imperative for the entire dental TEAM to consistently demonstrate proficient, consultative knowledge of dental implants and the digital workflow.

Staff members learn to become a confident, positive TEAM in their practice through a combination of presentation, hands-on, and interactive discussion. In addition, course attendees will have an opportunity to practice their newly acquired knowledge individually, and in small groups, and receive coaching and feedback before returning to the office to actually apply their new knowledge and skills with their patients and play an active role in reinventing and growing the dental practice.

Thinking in Data Workshop (David Weisman) @ hack/reduce

Format:

There will be networking and food before the presentation.

 

Abstract:
This beginner-level workshop focuses on critical thinking about data.  We'll look at fascinating examples of sampling problems, biases, outliers, confounding, and spurious correlations, and show how these lead to wrong conclusions.  We'll also show how exploratory data analysis through visualization can bring clarity. You'll takeaway a greater awareness of data itself, and be able to apply these ideas on your data science projects.

Renaissance Songs of Love and War
Before Monteverdi’s Eighth Book of Madrigals—the Songs of Love and War—revolutionized music on the cusp of the Baroque, composers of previous generations depicted their own scenes of passionate devotion and thrilling combat. Join acclaimed early vocal ensemble Exsultemus for a unique program of rarely-heard music of the 15th and 16th centuries, including settings of the Song of Songs by Lasso, Tollius, Lymburgia, and Monteverdi; mass movements based on the supremely popular 15th-century L’homme arme (the armed man) tune by Vaqueras, Obrecht, Brumel, and Tinctoris; chansons and madrigals by Verdelot, Willaert, Luzzaschi, and Festa; and Clément Janequin’s La Guerre, an exciting musical reenactment of the 1515 battle of Marignan.
