Jazz band gives gift of
BY KIM YAGED
C ADEAU A Vous, Ann Arbor's
premier jazz fusion group, will be
the Bursley Show's house band for
the fifth consecutive year. The show
is sponsored by the Bursley Family,
a minority organization that focuses
on Black students. Anyone is eligi-
enable minority students to visit the
campus. Presently, the money goes
to the Michael Griffith Memorial
Scholarship Fund and the Black Stu-
dents Emergency Loan Fund.
Cadeau a Vous' origins are deeply
rooted in the Bursley Show. The
band formed in 1984 when Art Mc-
Clellan and Dave Campbell met in
McClellan explains how he and
Campbell chose a name for the
group: "We wanted to come up with
something that people would re-
member. It so happens that I was
taking a French class at the time....
We opened up the French-English
dictionary and tried to come up with
something that would be catchy that
people would remember."
After six years and multiple staff
changes, Cadeau A Vous continues to
thrive. Presently, the band consists
of McClellan on trumpet and
fluegelhorn, Smith on bass, Gerard
Gibbs on keyboards, Brian Johnson
on drums, Traci Buckner on flute,
and Steve Arrastia on saxophone.
Gibbs does the majority of the com-
posing with some help from Smith.
They also do covers of tunes by
popular artists like Sade and Quincy
Jones or singles like "Feel Like
Makin' Love." According to Smith,
every piece sounds different each
time it is played. "We never play the
same song twice," he said. The
group's influences include Herbie
Hancock, Chick Corea, Miles Davis
and Marcus Miller, among others.
Whether covers or originals, it is
obvious this band simply enjoys
playing. Last week they had a show
at East Quad, where they jammed for
hours. According to Gibbs, the
group's goal is have their music
reach everybody. Although they reap
monetary rewards and publicity from
performing in the Bursley Show, the
band members say their primary mo-
tive for participating is to raise
money to bring more minority stu-
dents to the campus.
CADEAU d VOUS will perform at
the Bursley Show in Bursley fall on
Saturday, February 10th. The show
begins at 7p.m.
Cries and Whispers, one of Ingmar Bergman's later films, falls into his
"chamber film" category. After his stagier productions, like The Seventh
Seal and Wild Strawberries, Bergman began to make films that closely
studied a small group of characters and their interlocking relationships.
Called chamber films because of their musical equivalents, they usually
examine family relationships and how family determines character. Cries
and Whispers delves into the warped psychologies of three sisters, reunited
because of one sister's illness and death. Stuck together in a turn-of-the-
century mansion decorated in red, the sisters clash and come to realize what
they've become. In typical Bergman style, metaphors abound. Ultimately,
Cries and Whispers examines the necessity to define one's own meaning for
a life that can seem cruel and worthless.
For those who read the Milan Kundera book, The Unbearable Lightness
of Being, the film version may be a bit of a letdown. A film translation of
the book's dreamy narrative style seemed impossible in reading the original,
and indeed it was. The film version stands on its own, separated from the
essence of the book but augmented by gently beautiful cinematography.
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, the movie maps out the inability of one man to

to participate in the show, which
consists primarily of music and

the Bursley Show is to showcase the
talent of people of color.
Kofi Malik Boone, president of
the Bursley Family, explained the
history of the Bursley Show. It was
started 19 years agorby the Bursley
Family in order to raise money to
the Bursley library and decided to get
together to play jazz. They acquired
Darrian Smith and began practicing
anywhere they could, including the
Bursley prayer room. The band de-
buted at the 1985 Bursley Show. In
McClellan's words, "It was dark...
then the lights came up and they
were all standing there. It was
sweet!" Since then, Cadeau aVous
has been the show's house band.
