We have an extra episode this week! Jazz artist, Slim Man will join me for a discussion that is guaranteed to be interesting. Not only is Slim Man a talented musician but he is a "Bonafide" (pun intended) Renaissance man. We talk a lot about music and cooking on this show and Slim does both!

He was also host of the longtime favorite "Sunday Smooth Jazz" radio show on WLIF Baltimore. His knowledge of the music business is vast.

Slim Man was five years old when he saw the movie The Five Pennies, starring Danny Kaye and Louis Armstrong. When Slim saw Louis sing and play, he told his Dad..."That's what I want to do."

Slim Man then studied trumpet for ten years, and taught himself how to sing, play piano and guitar. Slim Man's first gig? Fifth grade! He played guitar and sang a few Beatles songs for the sixth grade graduation. While in middle school he took up bass, and Slim Man's band 'Momma Max' opened up for Iggy Pop and the Stooges, The Raspberries, and others. 

Later in life, Slim Man went into the studio and...End of the Rainbow, the very first Slim Man CD, was born. The CD yielded a Top Ten Hit, 'Faith In Us', and the CD went on to be included in over a dozen Top Ten lists for the year (1995).

J.D. Considine (Rolling Stone) said of the Slim Man style- "...a near perfect example of how jazz and soul can be combined as pop."

Slim Man will be performing Live, July 20th at The Ramshead OnStage Annapolis, MD get Tix Here for Slim Man.
