We have so enjoyed these special episodes of "Hybrid Jazz!"  The inspiration and encouragement after each has given us a buzz that has lasted for days - there is nothing like that natural high of like-minded creators who FEEL community :)

Jere B is an acclaimed drummer, composer, producer, actor, minister, mentor and CEO.  Can you imagine a more perfect partner for these endeavors?  We MUST keep talking about the music industry.  We MUST continually point out the injustices served to those who labor with their minds and hearts to create music.  Only to be told that their efforts will not be rewarded. This requires the most serious thought.  Imagine going to school, learning how to be a doctor, and then trying to find work as such - with this answer to your resume: "You're a doctor for the LOVE of doctoring, right?  Could you do this surgery for FREE?"

Musicians get these kinds of responses all the time.  If not in person, then written communications or CERTAINLY by way of their music being swallowed by companies.  Who offer songs for free.  And those responsible for the music being given away?  A mere pittance.  Something has to change!  The entire structure of the music BUSINESS has to change.

We may delve into specific topics on this next episode - but this is the basic premise.  How do we ensure that artists get what they deserve in this calculated music world to which they contribute?  How do we encourage those who create and play music to continue to do so, in spirte of the injustice served to them?  With Harvey still in our midst, we will be reverent about those priorities that need mentioning.  But we are adamant about our focus for this show.  Protecting and shepherding our OTHER healers: musicians.  Join us on 8/31 at six p.m. Eastern.
