We have all had that conversation about double standards in society.. Well tonight I want us to have a open discussion about double standards within our black community. For example, Is it right for a man to be able to be able to sleep around, and women to be shunned for it? Should we just accept that men and women are NOT equal and there are things that each gender is entitled to? Lets have a conversation about double standards within the black community and how we can move forward in order to progress.
Tune into Taboo Thursday tonight at 10 PM PST & Call in to voice your opinion @ 347-996-5750

Join me this evening when I interview Cedric Hendricks and William Brower regarding the bill H.R. 1682, the National Jazz Preservation, Education and Promulgation Act of 2015. The bill will preserve knowledge and promote education about jazz in the United States and abroad. Cedric Hendricks is an attorney based in Washington, DC. For over the past thirty-two years, Cedric R. Hendricks has worked closely with Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) on Jazz-related legislative and policy initiatives. Among his accomplishments with Mr. Conyers has been the development and passage in 1987 of House Concurrent Resolution 57, which designated Jazz as a rare and valuable national American treasure. This was followed in 1989 by the passage of legislation designating May 25th, the birthday of Bill Bojangles Robinson, as National Tap Dance Day. In 1991, they successfully secured federal funding to establish the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, which is now over 20 years old and has performed around the world. Most recently, he worked with Mr. Conyers on the development and introduction of a new bill for jazz, HR 1682, the National Jazz Preservation, Education and Promulgation Act of 2015. William Brower resides in Washington, D.C. In his 45-year career, Bill Brower has been a community organizer, a jazz journalist and oral historian, and a jazz and special event producer. He is currently a Founding and Senior partner of JBV Production, LLC. A major JBV client is the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. In that capacity Mr. Brower has served as Producer of the CBCF Annual Legislative Conference Jazz Issue Forum and Concert. He has also worked with the Office of Rep. John Conyers on various legislative initiatives, including H. Con. Res. 57 and HR 1682. Keeping jazz alive on Jazz Notes.
In another lifetime, I was hosting a terrestrial radio show - and playing a plethora of artists that were centered in the Baltimore/DC area. One of those was recommended to me QUITE strongly. A beloved friend, Johnny Shaw, was attending Towson University. And a teacher there stood out. Jeff Antoniuk. Johnny, being a saxophonist himself, recognized the greatness in another sax man. And HAD to get a CD to me. When I listened to that project, "Here Today", I was beyond impressed with the depth of work and feeling. Jeff was playing with his group, The Jazz Update, and they were COOKING!
That's the reason for Jeff's return visit to "Hybrid Jazz." He has a big event at An die Musik in Baltimore this weekend - with The Jazz Update - and it was important to pass along how cool June 20th is going to be :)
Jeff's roots are different than the average cat. He was born in Edmonton, Canada, and his family moved to Nigeria. There, Jeff's musical journey began. He absorbed his environment while learning how to play classical piano. In his teens, he returned to Canada and picked up a saxophone.
At the University of North Texas, Jeff pursued degrees in Jazz education and West African Ethnomusicology. In school, he was performing and touring. He co-founded the United Jazz Ensemble - his current group later - and is still a member of a fabulous unit that we featured the last time that Jeff visited: the Mars 4-tet.
His accolades as music educator are equal to the respect that he has received as musician, composer and performer. MANY students can attest to the life-changing classes that Jeff has given. His artistic direction for the Maryland Summer Jazz is legendary. We literally could write another five minutes on what our guest has done!
Please welcome Jeff on 6/18 :-D
