Aziza Miller Ten years ago, Linda Williams, best known in music circles for her 5 _ years playing and conducting for Natalie Cole, had an epiphany: it was time for a change – time for a new name, a new direction, a new life.

Aziza, the performer, the composer/lyricist, the complete artist was born. After her Hollywood period in which she composed the melody for Miss Cole’s “La Costa”, a contemporary standard, then wrote and recorded “City Living”, her debut album on Clive Davis’ Arista Records, Aziza turned to the daunting task of raising her son Brandon. She spent years happily shaping her young man’s life until he graduated with an Aerospace Engineering degree from U.S.C. and became Lt. Brandon Miller, pilot, U.S. Navy. Finding herself in the proverbial “empty nest”, Aziza brought out her yellow writing pad and began chronicling her thought and feelings. Somewhat to her amazement, the poet in her emerged! Reams and reams of poetry, song lyrics and topical statements poured out of her busy pen. Marrying those words to melody had always been her forte, so the composer in her got to work setting lyric to melody. Watching Aziza perform we sense the organic nature of her songwriting. Everything becomes a part of her work – a trip on the subway, a walk through the neighborhood, a fantasy about the man she will love, a statement about the man she will no longer love, her paean to the great ladies of jazz, and yes her exhortation to all the ladies to strut their divalicious ways – it all sums up her positive take on life. Watching her audiences nod their heads in agreement as she weaves her way through the types of relationships “out there” today, one gets the sense that she is talking for them, saying the things they think but can’t really express. She is becoming their voice, their spokesperson in a world that doesn’t always make sense. Her audience knows she makes sense to them.

Bruce Springsteen is headed to Harlem to perform for SiriusXM radio subscribers. The New Jersey-born rocker will hit the stage at the Apollo Theater for an exclusive concert on March 9, three days after the release of his new album “Wrecking Ball.” “Bruce’s music, now more than ever, reflects the attitudes and controversies and the personal and national conversations of our time,” SiriusXM president Scott Greenstein said in a statement. SiriusXM announced that on behalf of its employees, Springsteen and the E Street Band, the company will make a contribution to WhyHunger, an anti-poverty non-profit group. All of this is more evidence that Springsteen’s coming album is likely to have a healthy helping of social consciousness.

MANHATTAN — It’s the building block of the city.

A new exhibit at East Harlem’s Museum of the City of New York celebrates the 200th anniversary of Manhattan’s grid system — a plan that defines New York’s unique and concentrated structure.

“The Greatest Grid: The Master Plan of Manhattan, 1811 — 2011” chronicles the history of Manhattan’s streets and avenues, from the birth of the 1811 Commissioner’s Plan to the grid’s construction and development over the next two centuries.

Rare historical maps, original plans and photographs dating back as far as 1763 illustrate how the grid’s production transformed Manhattan from rolling green hills and farmland to a bustling metropolis during the 19th century. READ MORE >>>
