In 1981 in Philadelphia, Scott Marvill assembled a group of musicians eager to play the music they loved, Jazz. This led to their formation of "Freeport." Then Scott moved to NC taking the opportunity to bring the NY/Philadelphia jazz feel to the South. Some highlights have been recording and performing with Tower Of Power, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Special EFX, and Grover Washington Jr.?
"Live At The 2012 Hillsborough Jazz Festival" is FREEPORT captured doing what they do best. Performing live. Listen carefully and you'll hear folks caught up in the energy. Folks dancing, kids playing, etc. This CD gives you that experience. ENJOY!!

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!
It's almost difficult to write about someone who is your friend - who you have seen grow and flourish over the course of several years. Kerensa Gray is that and a mink coat :) She first came to visit yours truly when we were face-to-face at my former radio station. She had to make the trek from her cozy house in Pennsylvania to unknown territory in Maryland. But she went the distance the way she does ALL things: fearlessly.
As a middle school student, Kerensa showed a great deal of promise via the violin. So much so that she played in the Frostburg State University Orchestra during those tender years. Through the course of playing so much music and so often, she discovered that she had a voice. And there was no stopping her motivation to become the best that she could be. With discipline and an unbelievable array of gigs during the time that I've known her, Kerensa has truly made a name for herself. We've covered two albums during previous visits - the last was "Bliss" (and it was!). This time, we'll focus on her new "Take Me In." She covers beloved standards in the way that she knows how: with the knowledge and love of Jazz, with the innate Blues and Gospel that she feels - and with Folk and Smoke combined. You'll hear and you'll KNOW.
Kerensa was the last winner of the annual Billie Holiday Vocal Competition that was an important reason why attendees visited Artscape in Baltimore. They let that event go, sadly - but Kerensa is still known for that remarkable honor. It has paved the way for lovely musical associations with some of the greats in the business. But, to really get a feel for what she can do, see her when she headlines. Especially in intimate gatherings when she can let her hair down and sink her teeth INTO a song. That's the Kerensa I know! Join us at ONE on 1/12!
