Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation has taken a significant step towards starting construction of downtown’s largest residential project to date by purchasing a City-owned parking lot at 201 Ellicott Street.  Ciminelli paid $2.325 million for the 2.5-acre site yesterday.  The transaction was completed a week after a judge rejected a request for an injunction to block the sale filed by Rocco Termini.

The project includes 201 affordable apartments in a building with five floors along Ellicott Street and seven floors along Oak Street and a 20,000 sq.ft. Braymiller’s Market at the corner of Ellicott and Clinton streets.



While Ciminelli now owns the site, Termini’s lawsuit is proceeding.  He argues the loss of the 375 parking spaces will harm his The Lafayette project west of the site.  The judge in the case determined that if Termini’s case is successful, damages could be set at a later date and compensated monetarily.  There’s not a shortage of parking downtown.   A Buffalo Place Access & Infrastructure Committee study (January 2019) showed downtown off-street facilities were 63 percent occupied during the peak period, with 22,034 of 34,734 available spaces occupied, leaving a surplus of 7,490 spaces downtown wide.  Parking near The Lafayette could become tighter soon.  The City-owned Mohawk Ramp at Washington and Mohawk streets requires costly repairs and is likely going to be replaced.  Sources say an RFP seeking a private-sector partner to build a larger replacement ramp nearby is in the works.  

Ciminelli Real Estate says it wants to begin construction of 201 Ellicott in the fall and finish in 2021.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.

About Roosevelt Collier: Soft spoken by nature, South Florida-bred Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the pedal steel guitar. Brought up in the “sacred steel” tradition of the House of God Church, Roosevelt built his reputation alongside his uncles and cousins in The Lee Boys, known for their spirited, soul-shaking live performances.Seated front and center, “The Dr.” leaves an indelible mark on listeners, flooring audiences with his lightning-fast slide work on the pedal steel.

At festivals, he is a regular “Artist at Large,” performing alongside many of music’s most prestigious acts, from the Allman Brothers, Tedeschi-Trucks, Los Lobos , the Del McCoury Band and countless others. In 2017, Roosevelt debuted his new project Bokanté – a “World Music All-Star Band” created by Snarky Puppy founder Michael League and featuring the vocals of Malika Tirolien.

As a bandleader, Roosevelt leads his world famous “get-downs” featuring a mixture of “superstars and church folk”, his own “Jimi Hendrix Experiment”-style all-star trio, and in 2018 will release the long-awaited Roosevelt Collier debut record, featuring an incredible mixture of blues, gospel, rock, and funk all rolled up by producer and bandmate Michael League.

Electric Kif are a power quartet of grumpy children exploring instrumental groove based music. As Florida’s most in-demand upcoming fusion quartet, they have quickly garnered the attention of the live music scene. They come together creatively from very different backgrounds. Eric Escanes on guitar is from Bordeaux, France, Rodrigo Zambrano on bass is from Mexico City, Jason Matthews on on keys proudly hails from Philadelphia, and Armando Lopez on drums from Miami. Their training and experience combined was bound to generate something special…but their energy and dedication has taken Electric Kif to another level.

They have been honored to be selected for the inaugural Ground Up Music Festival, Rochester International Jazz Festival, Miami Downtown Jazz Festival, and more. Performance highlights have also included opening for artists including Stanley Jordan, Snarky Puppy, Ghost-Note, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Motet and many others. They have also had some fantastic guest appearances at their monthly Miami residencies with Cory Henry, Michael League, Roosevelt Collier, Mark Lettieri, and other top notch musicians.

“With a tight dynamic attack and blend, the Miami-based Electric Kif offers up the challenge of jazz fusion without the confusion. It’s high spirited and extremely high energy but doesn’t seem hell-bent on confounding as others may do.” – Rochester City Paper (Rochester International Jazz Festival)

“I want to take people to places they haven’t been.” Jesse Cook, Juno winning master guitarist, known for his intoxicating fusion of world music, has travelled the globe looking for sounds that resonate with him. “I like finding common ground for different music traditions, a space where music from around the world can come together,” Cook explains. “A place where modern sounds can mix with ancient timbres.”

He was born in Paris, to Canadian parents.After moving back to Canada, Cook started guitar lessons. “My teacher played flamenco. Then, when I’d visit my dad in France, he was living next door to Nicolas Reyes, the singer of the Gipsy Kings. I saw gipsy kids on the corner playing that way too.” It was as if the world conspired to get me interested in this style and I was hooked.” It was when he heard the Paco de Lucia, Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin album, Friday Night in San Francisco that the die was cast. “I was captivated by the sheer virtuosity and freedom, that people could play whatever they wanted, creating in that space between jazz and flamenco.”

Cook also helps foster this spirit of cultural exploration visually through his photography on Instagram as well his popular weekly video releases on his YouTube channel and through Facebook.

Thursday, October 10th: Marco Benevento ‘Let It Slide’ Album Release Show -Doors: 8:00pm, show: 9:00pm -Tickets: $15 ADV/$18 DOS -Ages: 18 About Marco Benevento: It’s impossible not to hear freedom and

About Marco Benevento: It’s impossible not to hear freedom and excitement coursing through the veins of Marco Benevento’s new studio album, ‘Let It Slide.’ Produced by Leon Michels (The Arcs, Lee Fields), the record introduces a gritty, soulful edge to Benevento’s brand of high-octane keyboard wizardry—an uptempo, uplifting sound he playfully describes as “hot dance piano rock.” For all Benevento’s virtuosity on the keys though, the songs here are driven primarily by intoxicating grooves, with spare drums and minimalist bass lines underpinning infectious, intentionally lo-fi vocal hooks. The resulting vibe is a timeless one, filtering elements of vintage R&B and soul through modern indie rock and pop sensibilities and peppering it with the kind of adventurous improvisation that Benevento’s come to be celebrated for worldwide.

Acceptance is a recurring theme on the record, and Benevento’s songs often find themselves recognizing that contentment can come only once you’ve freed yourself from the chains of desire and regret. Upon close listen, one can find Benevento’s own personal philosophies subconsciously bubbling up throughout the songs. “You’ll feel better, I’ll just say / When you finally let it go,” he sings on the funky “Say It’s All The Same,” which features vocal contributions from bandmate Karina Rykman. The hazy “Solid Gold” celebrates the simple joy of being in the moment with someone you love, while the Lennon-esque “Lorraine” (co-written with Simone Felice) grapples with loss and change, and the anthemic “Send It On A Rocket” contemplates loneliness and connection.

Dubbed “one of the most talented keys players of our time” by CBS Radio, Benevento’s released six critically acclaimed solo albums over the last decade, performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall and Newport Jazz to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, and worked in the studio and on the road with the likes of Richard Swift (The Shins, The Arcs), Jon Brion (Spoon, Aimee Mann), A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers), and Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Lumineers) among others. “It’s safe to say that no one sees the keyboard quite like Marco Benevento’s genre-blind mashup of indie rock, jazz and skewed improvisation,” the LA Times raved, while NPR said he combines “the thrust of rock, the questing of jazz and the experimental ecstasy of jam,” and Rolling Stone praised “the textures and colors available in his keyboards and arsenal of manipulated pedals and effects,” along with his “deceptively rich, catchy melodies and straight-ahead grooves.”

Opening Reception: Friday October 11, 6-9pm On view: October 11-November 16, 2019 Exhibition Hours: by appointment Contact: Dana Tyrrell, Curator, danamurraytyrrell@gmail.com | Argus Gallery 716.882.8100 Argus Gallery: 1896 Niagara Street, Buffalo, NY 14207

Argus Gallery is pleased to announce Umpteen, an exhibition featuring the work of Buffalo artist Ann Moody. Curated by Dana Tyrrell, Moody’s solo exhibition explores the invisible art of labor, made manifest through quilts, tapestries and wall hangings.

Moody’s intensely personal and laborious process is present within every stitch of their artwork; with materials culled from their own environment and up-cycled from second-hand stores, the artwork within Umpteen repurposes the cast-offs from fast fashion, craft rooms, and linen closets to make evident the excesses within textile production and the ubiquity of consumer culture.

By highlighting these practices and tenets of capitalist culture and harnessing them as tools of creative labor, Moody moves the conversation from union halls to the white walls of the gallery space. In so doing, the artist not only beseeches us to pause before these bespoke works of art, but also implores us to consider our place within the consumptive/productive narrative. Moody’s own labor in producing these works parallels the labor of those from whom the scraps and pieces within this work are derived.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Ann Moody is an artist living and working in Buffalo, NY. They were born and raised in Alabama and received a BFA in printmaking from the University of Montevallo in Alabama. After graduating and being confronted with the severe underfunding of the arts in Alabama and the lack of support for queer people, Moody moved to Buffalo and received a MFA from University at Buffalo. They have remained in Western New York after building an accepting, supportive community for themselves within the Buffalo arts scene. Artist website: http://cargocollective.com/annmoody

ABOUT THE CURATOR: Dana Tyrrell is an artist, curator, and writer from Buffalo, NY. Past curatorial efforts include exhibits with the Benjaman Gallery Group, Sugar City Art Gallery, and Dreamland Art Gallery, among others. His artwork has been shown throughout Western New York, including solo exhibits with Canisius College (2019), Castellani Art Museum (2017), and Dreamland Art Gallery (2015). His arts writing and criticism has appeared in Buffalo Rising and Cornelia.

Remembrance of Things Fast: True Stories Visual Lies, 1994 by John Maybury is a landmark work, in terms of its use of high-end post-production techniques and visual f/x to construct an imaginary, complex and thoroughly queer virtual landscape — one which extravagantly references the tropes and visual language of broadcast television, underground film, gay porn, drag & club culture, activist détournement, and music videos, while fluidly slipping between the boundaries separating those mediums. – Sean Capone, curator

The dreadful demise of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in Romeo & Juliet and the unrestrained passion of his Othello are arguably eclipsed by this rarely revived 17th Century Jacobean drama. ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore is a tale of forbidden love, deception and gruesome revenge that will provoke the mind and disquiet the heart as Annabella and Giovanni risk all by consummating their love in defiance of society, the law and the Church. In this world rife with corruption, greed and misogyny, who will bear the blame, and who will pay the price?

About George Porter Jr: George Porter, Jr. is best known as the bassist of The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. The group was formed in the mid 60’s and came to be recognized as one of the progenitors of funk then called R&B. The Meters disbanded in 1977, but reformed in 1989. Today the original group still plays the occasional reunions but the Funky Meters, of which Porter and Neville are still members, most prominently keeps the spirit alive.

Few bass players in the history of modern New Orleans music are as storied as George Porter Jr. During the course of a career spanning more then four decades, Porter has not only made a deep impression with his work in the Meters, but he’s notched session work with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, Taj Mahal, Ryan Montbleau and live performances with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno (and including recent studio releases with Warren Haynes and Bill Kreutzmann) just to name a few.

Early in his career, Porter worked with seminal New Orleans artists like Allen Toussaint, Earl King, Lee Dorsey, and Johnny Adams, Irma Thomas, The Lastie Brothers — again to only name a few. Porter is also the band leader of his own unique long term project the Runnin’ Pardners, well respected not only as a quintessential New Orleans band, the touring band continues to receive accolades on the jam band and festival scene. He has assembled some seasoned and talented musicians to join him on this project. Familiar Pardners – Brint Anderson (guitar) and, Michael Lemmler (keyboards) and rising stars on the New Orleans music scene Khris Royal (saxophone) and Terrence Houston (drums). George Porter Jr. plans to keep a smile on his face.” I feel like I am working towards something that will be remembered.”

Porter has proven to be capable of the ultimate fusion of rock, funk and R&B, and has gained recognition as one of the industry’s elite bass players. He continues to be not only an in demand performing artist but an accomplished studio musician and producer.

Lavender Haze Collective Presents... Joe Policastro Trio at The Tabernacle! Hailed by Downbeat for its “deft analysis of choice repertoire,” and by The Chicago Reader for its “diversity of approaches to all

Hailed by Downbeat for its “deft analysis of choice repertoire,” and by The Chicago Reader for its “diversity of approaches to all kinds of source material,” the JOE POLICASTRO TRIO returns to Buffalo celebrating the release of their fourth album, “Nothing Here Belongs.”

This Chicago-based alternative jazz trio led by bassist Joe Policastro features guitarist Dave Miller and drummer Mikel Avery. While firmly rooted in jazz, the band’s open-minded, inclusive nature draws upon a wide array of musical styles and sources while still keeping the aesthetic of an acoustic trio intact.

“Nothing Here Belongs” follows in the wake of “West Side Story Suite” (2013), “POPS!” (2016), and “Screen Sounds” (2017), all of which highlighted the trio’s ability to remake unlikely songs in its own raw, highly idiosyncratic fashion. “Nothing Here Belongs,” by contrast, for the first time showcases the trio’s captivating body of original music, while also including characteristically bold arrangements of songs by Bruce Springsteen, Talking Heads, and Santo & Johnny.

“…a cohesive unit with an extraordinarily flexible mindset…at every step of the way, this band breathes and bends as one.” (Dan Billawsky, All About Jazz)

“Unpredictable and sometimes eccentric…each listen to Nothing Here Belongs reveals more surprises.” (Scott Yanow, JAZZIZ)
