Join host Jacqueline Jax as she interviews Singer Songwriter Connie Kim.. Get a look inside the inspiration, life and dreams of this talented and unique song writer. Featuring Music by Connie-Kim.
Cheered on by musical greats Van Dyke Parks, Scott Litt, and Grant Showbiz, connie-kim’s first release arrived, with songs described by one reviewer as “jagged daggers dipped in honey”. Raised on opera and classical, and in love with electronic and ambient music, her influences are wide ranging: Serge Gainsbourg, Ennio Morricone, Aaron Copland, Laurie Anderson, desperation, Tom Waits, Jiri Kylian, Diane Arbus, Francis Bacon, New York city, Mark Rothko, Italo Calvino, wonder, and the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds. Her upcoming CD, ponderosa, co-produced with Mike Schmid, unwraps in a series of unsettled and sparkling moments, drifting through recollections of western spaces better left to memory. What started off with the $22 she had in her pocket is now a collection of panoramic jewel boxes combining string bass, violin and other acoustic instruments, electronics, and things found in the kitchen.
connie-kim is in Los Angeles now. You might see her perform at the Hotel Cafe, the Harold Williams Auditorium at the Getty Center, or a hidden coffeehouse. Whether accompanied by Daphne Chen of the Section Quartet or George Schwindt of Flogging Molly, she might sing you a song about an eastern city or a trapeze artist who’s afraid of heights.
Someone once said if Mary Poppins and Leonard Cohen were lost at sea on Federico Fellini’s dinghy, they’d be singing songs by connie-kim.

For the past decade, Adam Cruz has been a member of pianist Danilo Perez’s trio, which also features bassist Ben Street. But, in a business known for brief, constantly changing partnerships, he has chosen to develop and maintain long-standing working relationships such as those with pianists Perez and Simon, saxophonists David Sanchez and Steve Wilson, and the Mingus Big Band. And even before that, Cruz had established his name working with artists such as trumpeters Charlie Sepúlveda and Tom Harrell, saxophonists Chris Potter, Pharaoh Sanders, and Paquito D’Rivera, guitarist Charlie Hunter and, perhaps most notably, touring and recording with pianist Chick Corea.
Cruz has a new album coming out in April 2011 called MILESTONES. Comprising eight original compositions, and featuring a true all star band including Miguel Zenón, alto sax; Steve Wilson, soprano sax; Chris Potter, tenor sax; Steve Cárdenas, electric guitar; Edward Simon, piano, and Ben Street, bass, Milestone, which was made possible by a grant by the Aaron Copland Recording Fund, marks a before and after in Cruz’s development as an artist. www.adamcruz.net
