You know how HARD it is to describe terrific musicians that you've known for several years?  Well - it IS!  LOL!  These incredible artists have thrilled crowds all over the WORLD - and they are both from the talent-rich Baltimore/Washington area.

Ray Gaskins will start the second hour of the show with his news - and there is ALWAYS news from Ray :)  He has been touring with Roy Ayers - trust me, Roy keeps hims busy!  But Ray has his own company, his own gigs and a life in Baltimore that has him on the run.  We're glad to have him back in Charm City.  For a few years, he was based in the United Kingdom, where love for Jazz seemed to be more profitable.  Ray is truly loved there - and elsewhere around the globe.  But he needed his "roots" again - and we needed HIM!  That's how Phyllis Hyman felt about him, too.  Ray spent time with the beloved Soul Superstar - and he worked with The Brand New Heavies, too.  His discography speaks volumes - and we'll get to some tracks so you can HEAR the magic!

Elliot Levine is considered one of the Masters on keyboards.  You spend a night at his various shows around the region and you clearly understand why.  It's not just his technique and the swiftness of those fingers - but it's how he "zones" when he plays.  You'll never see anyone like him.  Like Ray, Elliot has a number of CDS that reflect his profound skill. Songwriting, too.  His music has been featured on TBS, he has scored for an Emmy-nominated documentary, and has toured with the late Wilson Pickett - and STILL tours with Heatwave. 

With how the Summer has been flying by, it's good to have our friends on NOW.  There might be a time when we'll have a week or so without "Hybrid Jazz" - in our prep time for a Florida move.  To have this chance is gold :-D  Join us!
