Hybrid Jazz has always strived to show class, dignity and variety with each episode. What you'll hear on 7/22/14 takes all of that to a new level. Helen Sung has been captivating listeners - via recording or live - since she emerged on the New York scene in the late 90's. But I'm getting ahead of myself ;)
Born to Chinese immigrants in Houston, our guest was playing piano at five. Her teacher was strict and permitted Helen to play only Classical music - which she did throughout her education at the respected Houston High School of Performing and Visual Arts. Her motivation for college: to teach and to perform when possible. All that changed when she saw Harry Connick, Jr., on stage - in Helen's last year of University of Texas at Austin.
The transition was swift. Obsessed with visualizing Harry's fingers on the piano, Helen got a hold of Everything-That-Is-Jazz: from Jelly Roll Morton to Keith Jarrett. She received dual degrees in Texas, but her eye was on the inaugural program at the Thelonious Monk Institute in Boston. It was mutual love - Helen's unique talent was now under the watchful eye of Artistic Director, Ron Carter. She toured with the Cream of the Jazz Crop - across the water with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. It changed her life. And ours who are fans.
That move to New York cemented what many already knew, including Wynton Marsalis, who now has HIS eye on where Helen Sung will land next. Terri Lyne Carrington knows, Helen having been a key component in the award-winning "Mosaic Project" in 2011. The Kennedy Center realizes her power, too - she is a recipient of the Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition.
Her sixth project, "Anthem For a New Day" is brilliant and brave. We could go ON for days about Helen Sung - but let HER tell her story: on 7/22/14 :)
Lee Ritenour made quite a splash four years ago with his A Twist of Jobim CD, in which he pulled together a rotating cast of all-stars to offer a program of contemporary jazz updates of classics from the Antonio Carlos Jobim songbook. He’s used the same formula for his latest offering, A Twist of Marley.

You know that we love to give you the Elders of Jazz - those who have paved the way in multiple ways. You're about to hear one of those Beloveds - Beegie Adair! Born in Cave City, Kentucky, in the 1930's, Beegie was playing piano at five. And learned those continuing lessons well. She left Bowling Green for more education in Nashville - and landed a prime gig at WSM Radio and TV - where she was a studio musician for nine years.
Ms. Adair also found her way to "The Johnny Cash Show" - where she served from 1969 to 1971. And in the days to come, she would work with a Who's Who of childhood heroes for many of us: Dinah Shore, Henry Mancini, Peggy Lee, Chet Atkins, Lucille Ball and more!
In 1982, Beegie formed a musical partnership with saxophonist, Dennis Solee. Called the Adair-Solee Quartet, the unit evolved into the Be-Bop-Co-Op, a Jazz Sextet. Eventually, she would record an album called "Escape to New York" under her own name. To research her discography is a night's work! Over 100 recordings - and her Beegie Adair Trio is responsible for about 35 of those.
The fabulous Jazz musicians that surrounded her: Nat Adderley, Bob Cranshaw, Gregory Hutchinson...well, that's enough for another show! And this amazing artist has also taught children the miracle of music - she freelanced in Nashville when women who were doing so were considered an oddity. And she formed a jingle company with her late husband. Matter-of-fact, our beautiful guest STILL plays for the Nashville Jazz Workshop - she has dates in August :)
You might have heard of the radio show, "Improvised Thoughts" via NPR? That was Beegie Adair! And she was invited to be on the syndicated "Piano Jazz" show with fellow keyboard Master, Marian McPartland.
