    Chieli Minnuci

    For 14 years (1982-1996), guitarist Chieli Minucci was half of the popular World Fusion band Special EFX, forming a musical partnership with percussionist George Jinda and creating accessible yet slightly unusual music. Minucci attended Ithica College, playing guitar in a variety of rock and pop groups, and had developed his own approach to the guitar when he met up with Jinda in 1982. Their band recorded extensively with GRP (1984-1992) and also made three CDs for JVC (1993-1995) before finally breaking up. Minucci in the 1980s and '90s also worked as a producer and writer for other musicians including Deborah Henson-Conant and Kim Pensyl, plus he worked in the studios. Minucci appeared on a variety of R&B dates by the likes of Chaka Khan, Roberta Flack, Noel Pointer, and Angela Bofill and began his solo career in 1995, cutting three CDs as a leader without Jinda for JVC during 1995-1997. Since that time, Minucci has continued to release albums, some of which include Sweet on You in 2000, Night Grooves in 2003, and Sweet Surrender in 2007.

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Jazz/Pop Singer Halie Loren

    in Music

    Forged in the hyperborean beauty of a remote Alaskan island, Halie Loren’s gift for capturing the playfulness, pizazz, vulnerability, and sensuality inherent in a classic lyric appeared early on. In 2000, Loren earned first place in the Austin Songwriters' Contest for three of her songs in the country, singer/songwriter, and jazz categories. She took songwriting awards in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Billboard World Song Contest. Her debut jazz CD, 2008's They Oughta Write a Song, won the JPF award for Best Vocal Jazz Album, and by 2010 the world had opened up to her — with distribution in Asia by JVC/Victor Entertainment, it became Japan's No. 2-selling jazz CD of the year. She followed with Stages, her first live CD, and mere months later, After Dark, which Wildy's World Music Blog selected as one of 2010's top three independent albums and named her Artist of the Year. "Thirsty," a Loren original on After Dark, won the Independent Music Awards Vox Pop poll for best jazz song of 2011. Loren's newest CD, Heart First, was released in Asia in late 2011, and almost immediately the first single from the album, Fly Me to the Moon, reached No. 1 on the iTunes Japan jazz chart and stayed there for several weeks. To date, more than 50 of her songs have entered Japan's iTunes jazz top 100. Loren’s performances in the past year include sellout crowds in Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, South Korea, as well as Hawaii and other U.S. locales. 'Heart First' has received much critical acclaim already, including Japan's Jazz Critique magazine’s #1 rank in the Vocal Jazz Album category for all of 2011.Having recently signed with Wild West Artist Management and Music Marketing Management, Loren is looking ahead to an ever expanding music career.  For more information, visit www.halieloren.com.
