The first time that I saw my guest - she and her Evolution Band were opening for Marion Meadows and the late, great Wayman Tisdale. I was amazed to see this energetic Church Girl jumping up and down, smiling - dress flying every which way - while she tore that stage UP!
One of the most profoundly affecting saxophonists in our tri-state region, Corinthia (also known as Chrissy) Cromwell is now getting airplay in mulitiple countries. Her "Peace of Mind Outside the Lines" (with guest artist, Cyrus Chestnut) combines Jazz and Gospel in a way that you may have not heard before this CD. Certainly, she was inspired to do this album, in part because of her friendship with Kirk Whalum - who came from Memphis to Baltimore in order to play at Chrissy's Release Party last year. But many of us remember a beautiful event a few years ago - when Corinthia and her band - along with the fabulous Tracy Hamlin - knocked Mount Pleasant Baptist Church on its ear with the combination of genres. It was an unforgettable night - and my friend has had quite a few of them. Because SHE was performing.
Saxophonist/Bandleader/Vocalist/Writer/Producer Corinthia has also been featured in movies that you know: "Head of State" (Chris Rock), "Boomerang" (Eddie Murphy), and "Malcolm X" (Denzel Washington). She and Evolution are on the road this year, gaining serious momentum on the Jazz charts, and making friends globally.
This woman can TALK! LOL! You'll enjoy an exhiliarting ride on the show - an uplifting and positive time will be had be ALL. The music starts at ONE P.M. Eastern - Chrissy joins us at TWO.
