Good music, Good times and so much more!
Oh my....how can this episode of "Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey" be described? Let's try :) First, the FUN planned for you is too amazing for words. Carefully chosen songs for the season of Halloween - some funky, some scary - others sensual to create the mood. No tricks - only TREATS!
With that in mind, we give you the intense artistry of handsome and brilliant Juanito Pascual! Completely magnetic, this Minneapolis raised acoustic guitar master will sweep you into the embrace of his gift. National Public Radio has called him, "One of the hottest flamenco guitarists in recent years." For yours truly, this quote doesn't quite tell the story. Because, you see, Juanito is a flamenco HYBRID - cultivating the respect for a style that he clearly owns when he plays - but also paying homage to the heroes that he heard as learned to play - at age 11. Jimi Hendrix, Johann Sebastian Bach, Miles Davis and The Grateful Dead. His music is firmly rooted in traditions but he is not to be boxed. That passion spills over with Classical and Jazz and is influenced profoundly by Beatles and the beauty that he encounters in his many journeys - well before his 2003 debut solo, "Cosas en Comun."
From his stay in Spain where he learned to survive on the streets - to his return to the States to study at the New England Conservatory (graduating with honors!) - to the formation of the New Flamenco Trio in 2012 - Juanito Pascual is recognized as a formidable talent in both America and in Spain. Where major artists revere him as an equal.
There is so much to his story! And we'll get to all of it - but the main reason for Juanito's visit is to tell you of his tour in support of his new CD. We'll hear most amazing tracks...and The Chat Room will be well-stocked with virtual Halloween candy. And MAGIC (shhhhh!)
Born in Barcelona, our guest on 11/19/2014 has made QUITE a splash in his adopted country. Besides the fact that he just voted for the first time - as an American citizen :) Oscar Penas (I can't wait to say his last name: PEA Nyas!) is a gifted guitarist, composer and bandleader with a new CD that is, indeed, bragworthy. "Music of Departures and Returns" is full of inspirations that captivate Oscar - who has discussed the reasons why he was so drawn to Jazz after his childhood studies in Classical Music. He relished the idea of creating melodies and interacting with other musicians. Pat Metheny and Wayne Shorter were sparks that goaded him early on. Then, the music of Pixinguinha - the flamenco music of Spain that was so infused inside of him - all the ingredients that would define the intoxicating stew of Oscar's music - were taking shape. This is a gentleman who has won the "ASCAP Plus Award" - so SOMETHING's working :)
Oscar is visiting us for two reasons. One, he's performing at the prestigious Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland, in the next few days. We certainly wanted to call attention to that. Secondly, this new album, Oscar's fourth, is full of music that enriches the soul. Esperanza Spalding and Paquito D'Rivera are featured - as is producer, arranger and pianist, Gil Goldstein. He also focuses on quartet: six-string electric bassist Moto Fukushima, drummer Richie Barshay, and the world-class violinist, Sara Caswell.
Besides being an alluring guitarist - both intelligent and earthy - Oscar is a wise man. He knew that, after his education at Berklee and the New England Conservatory, he would have to stand out in the sea of sublime artistry that populates New York City. So, he dug deeply, honoring his roots and his passion for Jazz. The results will make your ears thank you :)
Get ready for the most fun you'll have anywhere during the next hour of your life!

Jean Maurie and Maggie Lukowski are excited to welcome Tarot Dactyl on Personal Empowerment for Your Soul.
Tarot Dactyl is the Host of the popular internet radio show "There's A Rock For That!"
Today she will share some of her poetry with us and talk about the multi-faceted world of performance poetry. She has been a poet most of her life, ever since she won a local poetry contest in the 6th grade. In 1996 she co-founded Calliope's Breath, a poetry troupe known for its crowd-pleasing performances in the Panhandle region of Texas.
In 1998 she created the group PHRANC (Poetic Harmonious Readings and Nifty Commentary) which was one of the first poetry troupes to broadcast live readings on the internet for a global audience. Some of the highlights of her poetry career include meeting and performing for John Cassady (son of Neal Cassady), receiving an honorarium from the Texas Commission of the Arts, being a featured poet at numerous readings and slams across the country, and having her work published in numerous poetry publications.
One of her poems, entitled “Special,” is in the National Gallery for Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C in the “Book As Art” Permanent Collection, as part of a collaboration entitled “Annie Mayhem PH=D .“ She also spent a year working with flamenco guitarist arranging and adapting Federico Garcia Lorca’s poetry to flamenco guitar. She describes poetry as the breath of life and the purest of channeled messages.

Born Margarita Reymundo Jurado, in Acapulco, Mexico, the youngest of five children, Margo Rey had entertainment in her blood. Her mother, Juana-Amparo Jurado, was a flamenco dancer, and her father, Alejandro Reymundo, was a cliff diver of the famous La Quebrada cliffs. When Margo was two, the couple moved to Ft. Worth, Texas to raise their family. She is the great niece of the smoldering, Oscar-winning, Hollywood actress, Katy Jurado. Her parents raised onecomedian, Alex Reymundo, one writer, Ana Cristina Reymundo, two chef/restaurateurs, Antonio Reymundo and Gabriela (Reymundo) Pataro, and one singer/songwriter, musician and actress Margo Rey.
In Texas, Margo laid her professional foundation with over a decade of classical music training under the exclusive tutelage of classical voice professor, Dr. Luther Stripling. At 16 years of age, she sang arias by day, and by night she fronted an all original,allfemale rock band, Debutante (The Debs). Margo moved to Los Angeles to pursue and create music on her own terms while supporting herself as a voice over and on screen actress.
Margo Rey is a breast cancer survivor, but as she prefers to call it – a breast cancer warrior. In the midst of battling breast cancer, Margo hasn’t stopped pursuing her music.
“My music is romantic adult contemporary pop flamenco,” Roxanna states emphatically when she describes the muses for her debut album, ‘Exotica’. Indeed, it is. The songs are filled with lush orchestrations, sweeping pop sensibilities and simmering sensuality, all with a decidedly Spanish flair.
While it may have looked easy to get to where she is today with the release of ‘Exotica’, the reality of it all has been years of hard work, determination and perseverance. “As an independent artist, I’ve accomplished things that many developed artists haven’t,” Roxanna says. “Including making a music video with Matthew Rolston, having an actor from a soap opera, or having Chris Botti, the best trumpeter, to perform on my album, and all the musicians who perform on my album and in my concert. Money doesn’t buy all these things, you have to have the talent and people have to believe in you.”
Roxanna uses her considerable vocal gifts to tell stories of romance, heartache, healing, passion and sensuality. She debuted her first single, Unforgotten, a year ago. The song garnered acclaim and was just a hint of what was to come. Her followup single, Close Your Eyes, is a sweeping ballad that starts with a gentle piano and soars on the lifts of a huge orchestra like an eagle on an updraft. “Close Your Eyes was originally written by Lindy Robbins and Mark Portmann,” Roxanna says of the song. “The reason I chose to sing that song was I love the lyrics, I connected to the lyrics from my days as a nurse. The line, ‘I’ll be here till the sunrise’, that’s what the nurse’s duty is, to be there until the end, until they need you. It was originally written for Celine Dion and she didn’t want it so I took it.” Celine’s loss was Roxanna’s win as the song has become her first Billboard Top 40 Chart hit.
