One has a story worthy of a film - and that's no joke. The other is a young trumpet player who could STAR in a film: about his idol, Clifford Brown!
Michael Austin and Theljon Allen return for a joint interview on the next show - and they have a cause for you to support. Michael founded an organization called In This Together Inc. A benefit for the charity will take place SOON in our region. A beautiful idea was birthed from a visit to Durban, South Africa - and Michael decided to implement change in Baltimore.
Theljon caught ths excitement and is working with Michael to further fuel the vision of a hometown with less at-risk youth...the development of people, programs and resources for the underserved is urgent. And these hometown heroes want us to help - in any way we can.
Michael's real-life story involves being incarcerated for over two decades for a crime that he did not commit. When he was pardoned in 2003, he found his voice. In TWO ways: he decided to give back to the community, knowing he would be healed in this manner. AND he wanted to sing! You will hear what a wise choice that was - and you'll also hear Theljon Allen's trumpet. NOT your Daddy's horn, for sure! Steeped in the tradition but hearing the beat of the street, this young man with a solid reputation is getting buzz from his CD, "Universal Language."
In ANY language, caring for our brothers and sisters doesn't need a whole lot of words. We'll try to mix music into our discussion on "Hybrid Jazz" - so that you can hear what kinds of magic both our guests produce. By the way, with Michael and Theljon at this event coming up? Craig Alston and Tim Green - who have also visited the show! It will be like "Old Home Week" :)
And our songs will reflect celebration of that fact. Join us!
