Let's tell you at jump that we have a VERY different time for you to consider on 8/11/2015.  Our show starts at three p.m. Eastern/Noon Pacific.  This is so that we can accommodate the schedules of TWO artists who need focus NOW.  Who also happen to work day jobs :)

First up, Craig Alston.  A multiple instrumentalist who has made a name for himself in Baltimore and beyond.  Most notably, as saxophonist for the once-in-a-lifetime group, Fertile Ground.  With the band, Craig toured the United Kingdom, France, Japan and other countries - everywhere that appreciated the message delivered the mix of Jazz, Soul and World music.

Craig was heavily involved in Music Education at Morgan State University - but he got hooked on the performance aspect of playing, as opposed to teaching.  Still, that educator side of him never left.  Happily, he does both, but those of us who are fans relish the opportunities to watch him on stage.  Something he'll do this Friday night - as part of a Birthday Concert with fellow Leo, trumpeter Theljon Allen!  And die Musik in Baltimore will be rockin'!

Vocalist Rose Hudson is quite a story.  A nurse and Mother of eight, she has been singing the Blues for a long time - with a big following in Central Pennsylvania.  But Jazz has always been in her radar - and EC Coleman discovered that.  Our friend, EC, has had an ear for special Jazz singers for as long as he has been in the business - and Rose bowled him over! She has had previous work on disc, but "A Rose in Full Bloom" is a different vibe.  Soul and standards, done with love and passion.  Rose can't do it if she doesn't FEEL it.  Whether she has been singing or acting (that's a whole 'nother story!) or doing her life-saving work on a daily basis, she LIVES life to the fullest.  You'll hear it when you hear HER :)
