76 Degrees West is the longitude for the East Coast in the Western Hemisphere - let's just call it Washington, D.C. :)  It's also the name of the band that has been making other artists sound better for YEARS.  Now, it's the band itself that is front and center - creating a stir that's even hotter than 76 degrees!  "Keep On Moving On" is the name of the CD that you need to hear - blending Jazz, Funk and R & B into a true Old School meets New vibe - with energy and creativity to spare.  

They've shared the stage with SO many in the industry - now you are about to hear them on hometown turf - they will play a BIG event in April in the shadow of D.C!  Leon Rawlings - the band director who plays bass and trombone - will be with us.  Joining him will be guitarist Stanley Cooper, who was a guest on "Hybrid Jazz" in our first year.  What fun to have him back - and get to know Leon!  

From the all-male to the all-female --- get ready to welcome Italian songstress, Irene Jalenti - and news of her musical ensemble that is being called Musae!  This Friday, March 28th, Irene and AMAZING friends gather at An Die Musik in Baltimore for an unforgettable show.  Joining her - on vocals: Jessica Boykin-Settles; Delandria Mills on flute; Rachel Winder on alto sax; Janelle Gill on piano; Amy Shook on bass - and Savannah Grace Harris on drums.  There's a Greek definition of Musae, loosely translating to Goddesses of music and dance - who co-inspired :)  There's your image of these talents - with Irene as the spokesperson for what we can expect in the days to come.

Leon and Stanley at two p.m. - and Irene at three - the music, of course, starts at ONE p.m. Eastern time.  Let Spring TRULY begin with the fantastic music that you're about to hear!
