219 GreenConnect host Kathy Sipple speaks with Tacy Fletcher of Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society’s North Chapter. INPAWS is growing despite the end of the growing season, and the fall of shorter nights and sleeping plants…
Tacy will discuss the numerous hikes the INPAWS group led; some of what was seen and identified; friends made; and trails discovered. More of the same can be expected from INPAWS North Chapter in the upcoming year including the indoor monthly talks by invited speakers who have expertise in native plant species.
What a treat to have Shannon Kennedy and U-Nam with us! THEY are Nivo Deux - a partnership of powerful "hybridity" :-D Yes, they re-define a whole NEW Hybrid, combining a cutting-edge 80's rebirth - with Electro-Pop and Contemporary Jazz. It's energizing and hypnotizing - and blissfully creative!
U-Nam has been a respected French producer and songwriter in his native country for quite some time. And he has made an impact in the States. His take on the Crusaders' "Street Life" took our breath away a few years back - and his latest project under his name jolted us again. "Weekend in L.A." - from last year - featured A-Listers, including Marcus Miller and the late George Duke.
Nivo Deux is a whole 'nother story - and builds on the funky and fresh fusion of "Weekend." Pairing with the beautiful - and beautifully talented saxophonist/vocalist, Shannon Kennedy, the new EP mirrors a bold world...where genres are blurred in the best way.
Shannon's background is such a fantastic counterpoint to U-Nam's. They're married and it would give the impression, listening to "Open Beta", that they live and breathe this music! You've got the amazing guitar wizardry of U - and the alto/bari/tenor chops of Shannon - whew :-O There's heart and soul in this young woman - she has not only played with 10,000 Maniacs and Peter White - and has been on "America's Got Talent" - but she has also formed a true bond with aspiring artists. Her secondary website is Teen Jazz - which encourages youthful visionaries to share their networking, expertise and advice. This mentorship has set Shannon apart - and earned her understandable respect.
Something that YOU'LL have when you hear the magic of Nivo Deux! Three p.m. Eastern on 8/29/2013. The fun begins at ONE!
Our guest is starring at the world-famous Blues Alley on Tuesday, 9/10/2013, so "Hybrid Jazz" will be heard on MONDAY instead of its usual day.
For Kevin Toney? You had better believe that I'll accommodate him! Not only because his music has been thrilling us for YEARS - since the 70's when he was at Howard University with The Blackbyrds - but his solo career that followed. We have songs that dance in our head from Kevin from long ago..."Rock Creek Park", "Walking in Rhythm", "Kings", Aphrodisiac"...and his latest album is a culmination of all that has been experienced in his life, including an epiphany a few years ago.
That huge change resulted in a book, "The Virtuous Man: Breaking the Mens' Code." So many familes have been profoundly affected by Kevin's clarily and courage in relaying his story of God breaking him down - in order to build him UP. His music, thereafter, reflected his overwhelming gratitude. Not only for his new-found faith, his wife, his extraordinary philanthropic interests - which would be enough reason for an interview! - but also for his country. "New American Suite" is an exhilarating ride across the USA, stopping to smell the roses - and history - via instrumental music. A gorgeous work! And we'll discuss the inspiration for ALL of it - the music, the book, the Los Angeles-based "Manformation Project" that Kevin and his wife oversee.
How many artists do we know that are this hands-on regarding life and faith? LIVING and walking the walk? Kevin Toney has a new devotion to doing just that. He has recorded and/or performed with superstars: Wonder, Whitney, Sinatra - but I'll bet that you hum HIS music as much as you do theirs. That's the power of longevity. And, Kevin would say, the power of God.
One p.m. 9/9!
Little Theresa from Tyler, Texas got her groove on EARLY! Maybe it was the family's move to Houston that did it...whoever we need to thank, we will - but let it be known that a tiny girl managed to learn piano, reeds, and guitar. But fell in LOVE with the saxophone. And became so proficient that she was the talk of her grade school. The musicianship that Theresa displayed was such that she was asked to play in Church. As we all know, once immersed in the feel of a sanctuary changes you forever. She knew that and something propelled our guest to study HARD over the next several years.
Under the tutelage of internationally known instructors, she received her degree in music performance and Jazz Studies. TWO masters degrees later (!!!), Theresa Grayson is on her way to a Doctorate. The power of passionate education and love for music cannot be stated enough.
Inspirations: Coltrane, Parker, Getz and Grover. But she is compelled to do ALL kinds of genres on stage - which is where she feels obliged to help and heal. And, by the way, she has SHARED that stage with Ronnie Laws, Joe Sample and Michael Bolton - to name a few!
Theresa's sophomore release, "Live2Love" is more than just terrific music for our ears to enjoy. It's how she conducts her life. And it's a pleasure to hear more of that philosophy combined with the songs that we'll play - when this beautiful saxophonist joins us next time on "Hybrid Jazz!" Talent as WIDE as the state of Texas: you better believe it :-D
Yes, you heard that right - we're determined to CELEBRATE October, despite the chaos that grips the world. And we're especially high on focusing on those born under the sign of Libra - like our guest, Veronica Nunn, whose birthday we honor as this is being typed :)
Veronica brought something to our attention on her last visit - and we'll be focusing on that, too. BULLYING. On October 9th of this year, it's "Unity Day." That means - apart from the suggestion to wear orange - that thousands are coming together to push the prevention and elimination of bullying everywhere. In every form. V has her own stories - as does yours truly. And we're encouraging YOU to share a pivotal moment in your life that may have hurt. But maybe it made you also more determined to see this kind of abuse end! Feel free to call 323 - 843 - 6172 between one and four p.m. Eastern time - especially if you have a way in your city to end bullying - or if you have a suggestion yourself. We'd love to hear it!
Veronica, meanwhile, is VERY busy - her "Tales From the Jazz Side" podcast...big events with Michael Franks (B.B. King's in New York - and Tokyo!) and consistent writing, teaching, and pushing positivity wherever she can.
We'll have some special music picked out for you - October Babies, of course! And the conversation should be energizing and thought-provoking. This is our third time "hanging out" on Hybrid Jazz - and it has been too much fun to articulate - but you'll HEAR it!
www.veronicanunn.com Get to know our great pal from Little Rock, Arkansas - who started to sing at age 7 - and the world has been grateful SINCE!
She has been called "Brazil's best-kept secret" - a source of pride for her country for years. Now, you'll be able to hear the essence of that pride when Fernanda Cunha visits us on "Hybrid Jazz." :)
Since 1997, our guest has been enhancing the passion of samba and bossa nova...and nowhere is this more evident than her project from 2012, "Coracao do Brasil." Fernanda displays the magic that was intended by composers Antonio Carlos Jobim, Aloysio de Oliveira, Daniel Gonzaga and more.
More than a dozen years have gone by - and Ms. Cunha has gathered thousands of fans from three continents. One listen to "Adeus America" (for example!) and you'll realize why this abundantly talented artist is so revered.
Your host wanted a particular way to celebrate another birthday - so Fernanda Cunha was specially chosen. Yes, indeed, it will be three hours of music that is both expected. And NOT. Favorites WILL be played!
And that's exactly the reason why the spotlight is on this Brazilian songstress - if we're going to have a party - we only want the BEST :-D
The party/show starts at one p.m. Eastern time - Fernanda arrives at three - join us in The Chat Room!

When two artists are drawn to the other's work, that's beautiful - regardless. When those two become friends via common goals - one living in California and the other in Oklahoma - that's destiny!
Such is the case with Gary Fuston and Gino Goss. Gino is a superb trumpter who also plays flugelhorn - and has a true world vision of instrumental music. In 2008, he formed Jammajazz and carved a new niche within independent music circles. By 2009, "Almost Famous" came to the attention of those ever-widening circles. And now we can call Gino - some few years later - an award-winner. You'll hear about that when our guest visits on Tuesday, 10/1.
And you'll also hear about Gino's popularity on GHP Radio - a creation from our other guest, Gary Fuston. Not only the host VIA GHP - but a musician as well - and a producer, promoter, composer and graphic arts designer.
Gary and Gino discovered each other while championing the cause of independent artists - and found that they had musical chemistry too strong not to pursue. A recent collaboration is getting major buzz: "Just Don't Want Another Broken Heart." Hypnotic and evocative of another era - yet giving you the impression that you're hearing a new kind of Hybrid - this song has been given yet another pair of wings with a remix featuring respected guitarist, Roberto Restuccia. That mix had its world premiere on the last GHP show - and we'll hear it again when Gino and Gary visit us!
Here's what is exciting about their visit in a BIG way: we can discover ways that we can push the cause of indies. It's one thing to lament the lack of support that an artist can be given - instead of moaning about it, Gino and Gary can suggest ways to help an effort that is now universal.
And it's First Tuesday on Hybrid Jazz - so EVERYBODY wins!
One of the most blissful reasons why it's cool to live in Baltimore has to do with Carl Filipiak. To know that you can see him regularly at The Cat's Eye in Fells Point is more than exciting. An intuitive MASTER of Guitar, Carl has been able to do what many artists wished they had been capable of doing since the 60's. And that is to organicially, skillfully and passionately infuse the energy and drive of Rock inspiration with Carl's love of Jazz. Here's the new favorite word to use to describe this constant evolution: FLUID. When you hear our guest with his Jimi Jazz Band, you are witnessing fluidity at its best. Hybridity in every sense. It's what fuels Carl to keep playing guitar - this creativity to merge his love of genres in such a way as to thrill audiences who might not believe that they'd love BOTH Rock and Jazz. My friend has been keeping us happy in that regard for YEARS!
"Live at the Cat's Eye" - with the Jimi Jazz Band (named after you-know-who!) - has stunned even Carl with the depth of success. This is a new project - and already it's #1 on TWO Amazon MP3 charts!
You'll hear a very excited award-winning guitarist/instructor/author when "Hybrid Jazz" next convenes. it doesn't hurt to tell you that Carl has shared the stage with Wynton Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard, Roberta Flack and Chick Corea. When I say this man is awesome, I MEAN it!
After our visit with Carl, saxophonist/teacher/mentor Gregory Thompkins drops by with good news. Which Carl will relish, too, since both men are friends who share a devotion for Jazz Education. Greg's annual Baltimore Jazz Education Project event is in October - with special guest, Claire Daly - and we'll have a ball talking about it!
Get ready for great music and conversation!

STEVE HUTTON - President & CEO Star Roses & Plants
Steve Hutton, president and CEO of Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle, is a third-generation nurseryman. At age of 12 he had his first paying job in the industry—following a number of non-paying jobs—selling pansies that he and his brothers grew to the garden center Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle had at the time.
After graduating from Earlham College with a degree in English literature, Hutton sought practical industry experience at a number of different nursery establishments. He worked in a cut rose operation, E.G. Hill, then for a year at a foliage plant nursery, Oakdell, Inc., in Apopka, Florida. His final stop was as a trainee at the world-renowned French rose breeding operation, Meilland International.
When he returned to Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle in 1978, his first job was routing trucks during the spring shipping season. He later held positions as head of the license department, vice president of production and, finally, president of the company.
Hutton is a past president of All America Rose Selections, president of the National Association of Plant Patent Owners, member of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Gold Medal Award Committee, member of the board of The Wholesale Nursery Growers of America and member of the International Plant Propagators’ Society. Additionally, he holds board positions in several local nonprofit organizations.
