SANTA FE — Five of the Santa Fe Opera’s six productions this summer are by mainline dead composers. One is by a live musician virtually unknown in the United States.

But that doesn’t accurately state the balance of old versus new. Santa Fe doesn’t mind playing games with tradition, so only a couple of the operas would please die-hard purists.

The Big Screen: Talking James Brown With A Man Who Knew Him Well

BigScreen_logoSMALLThe movie Get On Up looks at the life and times of James Brown. So this week, we figured: Who better to talk all things James Brown with than Angus Wynne.

Wynne is a Dallas music promoter who booked Brown at local clubs and eventually became his friend. He says the Godfather of Soul was “unfailingly polite” and “didn’t put on airs of any kind.”

To that end, Wynne referred to him as Mr. Brown. But later on…

“He said, ‘Hey, forget all that stuff. Just call me James.'”

If you do nothing else today, be sure to listen to the last minute or so of this week’s episode, when Wynne recounts the time that “James” called him up on stage during a show.

Flickr Photo of the Week

 

flickr 600x337 post image

Congratulations to Patrick Harvey of Duncanville, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Patrick has won our contest before. His last win was back in May. He follows last week’s winner, James Neal.

zIf you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday.

Now here’s more from Patrick.

Title of photo: Stockyards Hotel

Equipment: Nikon 3200

Tell us more about your photo:  I took this photo because I like historic architecture. I admire Fort Worth’s historic stockyards and it brings the west out in the DFW area.
