You thought that you !might have heard EVERYTHING - oh, no - you DINT!  Wait until you hear our guests in the second and third hour of the show on 9/12!

"Creole" Joe Sample has given us decades of Jazz - starting with the Jazz Crusaders in the 60's.  The last time Joe visited "Hybrid Jazz", he was very excited about heading into production with a dream that he has had for a long time.  And that is to record what he heard as a young boy...the delicious mix of French and African and other slowly stirred-in ethnicities that make up the hybrid stew of Creole.  Zydeco music!  Now, "Creole Joe Band" is out, surprising and delighting the fans who didn't see this coming - and the stellar band promoting the CD is heading to a city near us - and maybe YOU!

Hear about the amazing journey that Joe is taking with Ray Parker, Jr. and C.J. Chenier - whose roots, via legendary Dad, Clifton, define the world that was Joe Sample's childhood.

After Joe's relatively short visit (he's playing the Blue Note this week!), we'll get to know the Sorad Master, Amjad Ali Khan!  One of the most highly respected artists in his native India, the most wonderful Amjad has been traveling with his sons - to introduce ragas to an audience that has never heard them.  Amjad relishes this!  There is much to say about this man and his career - which has inspired two books - and has been so rich in honor and musicianship - that Amjad was given India's second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhashan.  Maestro Khan is part of a noble lineage that has seen generations of musicians - but his classically trained gift was perceived as extraordinary at a young age.  A chance to speak with the most noteworthy Sarod authority in the world is truly an honor!  You'll hear about the Khans' tour and hear inspiring music.

Join us at one p.m. on 9/12!
