This is the first time that I could actually list an artist - from A to Z - that Winston Byrd has had in his circle. He has played trumpet for over two decades with the best of the best...ready for a taste of that alphabetized list? Abbey Lincoln/Blood, Sweat & Tears/Chaka Khan/Dells/Ellington's Orchestra/Fathead Newman/Grateful Dead/Horn (as in Shirley)/ I - as in Will.I.Am - whew! It goes ON and on!
Winston hails from Wilmington, Delaware - so he heard the music of the extended Philadelphia region, as well as New Jersey and New York. What steered him in his musical journey, initially, was feeling the sound of Maynard Ferguson (in seventh grade!) - then seeing Dizzy Gillespie with Jon Faddis on the 1986 Grammy telecast. Jon actually became a mentor - and introduced our guest to some pivotal admirers who would pave the way for more awesome associations. And SO much work! Music that was developed "on the road" as opposed to what could have been learned in the classroom. Part of that amazing journey revolves around the artistry that Winston has developed with big bands. Orchestras. He loves ALL of it, though. Way beyond HYBRID, this one! LOL! This is Multiple Genre Magic that Winston Byrd has cultivated.
Two albums to his credit - and we'll hear tracks from both. "Soul Searchin'" and "The Tao of Pooh" bring to your ears a full fruition of all that expertise he has brought to performances and projects by other artists. If you do the research, you'll see one rave review after another from fans of trumpet who cannot believe what they're hearing. Winston Byrd is THAT good :)
What we'll have for you is superb music and conversation - and a special July 4th show. Gather friends and join us!

Camille Thurman was born in St. Albans, NY. She is a saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, composer, and educator. Her lush, velvety, rich, warm sound on tenor saxophone has been compared to tenor greats Gene Ammons, Dexter Gordon and Lester Young. Camille’s ability to sing four octaves and perform vocalese greatly influences audiences reminiscent of Minnie Riperton, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. Her ability to take the sounds evocative of yesteryear’s legends and creatively pair them with the nuances, edge ad freshness of today’s music not only expanded the possibilities of jazz in the the upcoming generation but gained her the respect of audiences in Israel, Switzerland, and around the world. An accomplished performer and composer, Camille shared the stage with Dr. Billy Taylor, Benny Golson, Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys and other jazz and R&B icons. Camille leads her own quartet, which toured Russia, performed at the International Women in Jazz Festival, Super Jazz Ashdod Israel Jazz Festival, and others worldwide. She has appeared on BET’s Black Girls Rock as the saxophonist in the All Star Band and has performed at venues including the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and the Jazz Standard, just to name a few.
