You may have just viewed a brief description of Renee Rosnes within the parameters of this page. Trust and believe, you cannot be BRIEF when describing her talent! She has been noted as both pianist and composer for a long time - and we bless the day that she moved to New York from Vancouver in order to facilitate her reputation :)
Renee is also an arranger - please make note. And she is The "Go-To" goddess on keys for the filet mignon of artists within Jazz circles. Joe Henderson, Buster Williams, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Hutcherson. They'll TELL you. James Moody asked her to join his elite circle of musical friends in 1989. Renee was with his band until his passing in 2010.
As well as her own endeavors, Renee has taken part in grand events that would exhaust mere mortals. She has been music director for prestigious affairs (one in particular comes to mind to honor her late, beloved boss, James Moody). She has produced at Lincoln Center, has been involved with the SF Jazz Collective, has interviewed for the "Jazz Times", and has hosted her own radio show for Canada's CBC.
Please let her website do the talking, though. One perusal at her "performances" page and you'll see the kinds of company that she keeps. With Jimmy Greene, with Cecile McLoren Salvant, Anat Cohen, Ingrid Jensen, Terri Lyne Carrington, and a mainstay in her life: Ron Carter. One of the most wonderful decisions that Renee has made in her career is to consciously seek out those with whom she has a connection - rare legends have asserted that they have a connection with RENEE. It's no surprise that this amazingly intuitive artist has won multiple Juno Awards. With a birthday coming in March - and with all of these fabulous CD release shows, there is MUCH to celebrate! Join us on 2/9 - and we'll do JUST that!

First, let's thank awesome promotions "star", Jason Gorov, for the introduction! Jason sent "Let Me" by Kenya in 2015 and yours truly listened HARD. That song popped off the page. Then, hearing other tracks from "My Own Skin" was more confirmation. During the holiday season, our guest's take on "Little Drummer Boy" knocked dozens of socks OFF all over the country and the world. Kenya was on a mission to convey that treasured piece in HER way - and we felt the emotion.
This enterprising artist has been working hard for some time. Not only a superb vocalist (trained by the same legendary coach as Dianne Reeves), Kenya is also a songwriter, clinician, educator and Mom. She knows how to balance the plates in the air - and shows up EARLY, if you dig what that means ;)
A native of Denver, this powerhouse had a Dad who made SURE that she appreciated Jazz. Calvin McGuire used to be a drummer and worked alongside Marvin Gaye. Growing up, she heard Billie and Grover - but she also was drawn to Minnie Riperton and Stevie Wonder. HE was a true inspiration. Jazz, Soul and Pop/Rock - Kenya appreciated The Police and Robert Palmer, too. Her love of music and her ability resulted in participation in city-wide choirs in middle school. At Howard University in D.C., she was involved in the esteemed Gospel choir there.
With a Bachelor's in Physical Therapy and a Masters in Counseling and Student Development, she had all the tools that she needed to succeed financially. But she missed music. A life-changing retreat in Sedona, Arizona, paved her renewed spiritual journey. After two EPS - now, "My Own Skin", Kenya is exactly where she needs to be. Success on multiple charts is God's way of letting her know that the world is READY! Join us on 2/2 - and meet Kenya!

Welcome to Smooth Jazz Gospel Uncut, here on Blogtalkradio. A Unique Blend of Jazz with Truth Music and always Smooth. Growing up in the South i was expose to different musical instruments. My early teens i made the decision to go with the Brass Section. That being said i chose to playTrumpet. Being in a Marching band as well as Concert band my love for Jazz came into play. Hearing music on radio in different cities began to shap what i wanted to be in life. I chose Radio Broadcasting. Moving to New Orleans for some training in radio i began to love "Smooth Jazz" mostly heard on WYLD radio. Moving back to Mississippi which is mostly a "Blues Music" State i wanted our people to hear this sound. Fast Forward in time now with my own show on The "Men-Empowered" radio group i present to you Smooth Jazz Music, with a touch of Truth, and HebrewStyle

What a ball to have Jonathan Widran visit us again! Our L.A. Connection has much on his plate - he's a sought-after professional in a number of ways. Jonathan has interviewed hundreds of celebrities - those who are considered Pop and Rock legends. And beloved artists in the world of Jazz. As well, he is keenly observant of what happens in the film industry - having spoken to a studio executives and actors alike. As a member of NARAS for years, he also knows the inner workings of all facets of music. Did I mention that he has a GREAT reputation? You might hear that again ;)
Growing up in Chicago, our guest fell in love with music early in life. He couldn't help it. Knowing his Mom the way many of us do, she made sure that her little boy heard truly fabulous artistry. He especially gravitated to 70's & 80's Pop (Elton John a favorite!) - and his sister laid down the law concerning required listening: to Motown and Philly Soul.
With his sights set on writing, Jonathan graduated from UCLA. Two years later, he was at the Catalina Jazz Trax Festival and the ball started to roll concerning his future. Ideas were exchanged about the growing popularity of Contemporary Jazz - conversations that blossomed with good friend, Dan Margulies. He was the pivotal force that introduced Jonathan to talents like The Rippingtons, David Benoit, and Bill Bergman (you remember the glorious sax from "You Belong to the City?") Blissfully, these convos turned into action. And Jonathan found himself writing for important publications that made a difference in every day lives. About entertainment, leisure, happenings in Los Angeles that readers needed to know - most especially when it came to MUSIC.
The resume is LENGTHY - let Jonathan tell you about it when he visits at one p.m. Eastern on 1/21 - you're gonna be WOWED by the visit!
