Hey jazzers! Ron Jackson of The Smooth Jazz Ride here. Join me and my co-hosts Aira & Mike as we chat with the lovely piano/keys virtuoso Keiko Matsui about her upcoming release Soul Quest. Keiko will be speaking with us all the way from Japan! We will be featuring tracks from the CD, and listeners with questions or comments for Keiko can call on our toll-free line (1-888-342-9919). This is one conversation you don't want to miss!
Ms. Keiko is stopping by for a another chat with me, bringing great updates since her release of Soul Quest!!! :) A true humanitarian, Keiko has lent her voice to raise awareness for such causes as The Daniel Pearl Foundation, The United Nations World Food Programme, Be The Match Marrow Registry and The National Donor Program and Marrow Foundation. She has also lent her efforts to the continued revitalization and healing of Japan in the wake of the recent Tsunami and Fukushima disasters.
In January 2014 I did a show about Blackfish, the eye-opening documentary that uncovered and exposed SeaWorld for decades of animal abuse, neglect and kidnapping baby orca whales from their beloved families in the world's oceans. This was a very powerful 'first show of the year' that touched so many of you.
Since it's release and continued airings on CNN, Blackfish has been causing major waves at SeaWorld, including rapid declines in attendance and ticket sales and collective debates as to whether or not orca's belong in captivity. Millions of people from around the world have got onboard The Blackfish Effect, and continue to spread the world about the documentary in hopes of one day shutting down SeaWorld and releasing the orca's back into their natural environment.
Former SeaWorld trainer Samantha Berg (who was featured in the Blackfish movie) talks with us about her thoughts on Blackfish, SeaWorld and what will likely be the future for the beloved Tilikum. Samantha was most generous with her time and spent nearly 20 minutes with us when we were only scheduled for 3-5 minutes! Thanks again Samantha! For a remainder of the show, we'll opened up the phone lines to hear from you, and your thoughts about Blackfish & SeaWorld. Oh yes, and my Mother makes an appearance....

In listening to "Evolve", you can tell just how far and deeply felt the journey of Jackiem Joyner has been. Our award-winning saxophonist (and MULTI-instrumentalist) is so much more than you might have known. Raised in the roots of the Christian Church, you heard Jackiem explore his spiritual side on "Church Boy" from two years ago. He was finding his way through the myriad of other musical influences via his three previous efforts. Now, with his fifth release, he is clearly confident, persuasive and stronger than ever about his future.
Start to finish, these eleven tracks - all written and produced by Jackiem - offer a glimpse of who's around him, who has inspired him and what's important to him. Gerald Albright has been a hero for some time - and he's here on the song, "Big Step." Jackiem tours with Keiko Matsui when he's not leading his own band - and she is featured on a song that he wrote with her in mind, "Europa." His touring band plays with him on "Evolve" - and it makes such a difference in passion and artistry!
Our guest has had such a wonderful background...born in Norfolk, Virgina - with high school experience in upstate New York. Chosen to be Music Director for the "World Harvest Outreach Ministries" while still very young. With Marcus Johnson for three years...recommended highly by Angela Bofill for a pivotal tour that guaranteed even MORE fans - fans that have stayed through every project that Jackiem has created.
"Lil Man Soul" has been able to tour all over the world - side-by-side next to those whose music he had lived while he was growing up, dreaming. Najee, Kirk Whalum, the late and great George Duke...and he isn't even 35 yet! So much more to come - and this chart-topping artist is READY! That's why the CD is called "EVOLVE." :
As a young turk on the contemporary jazz scene, saxophonist Jackiem Joyner is far from complacent and staid in his sound and style. Not afraid to challenge the fan base that took him to No. 1 twice and Top 3 two more times on the Billboard chart, Joyner gets adventurous on his fifth album, “Evolve,” which will be released April 29th by Artistry Music/Mack Avenue Records. It’s his first on which he wrote and produced the entire set, including the first single going to radio in mid-March, “Generation Next,” an up-tempo urban-pop track with vibrant flashes of strings that provide a contrast to Joyner’s gentle melodic sax.
Juxtaposing invigorating otherworldly sonicscapes under tender sax melodies, “Evolve” is a dynamic, highly-rhythmic session that is unpredictable laced with traces of the familiar. Listening will take you to a different place while defining Joyner as a musician and a writer beyond what we have already heard from the chart-topping rhythm and groove guy. The imaginative new set has a greater purpose with the introductory single, “Generation Next,” serving as “a declaration that the next generation of jazz musicians is here to stay.
Acclaimed pianist Keiko matsui took a break from recording after her 2007 release “Moyo” but she has been out there sharing her incredible sound with fans all over the world. She has now returned with “The Road…” on Shanachie Records. This is an incredible work with spiritual and passionate harmonies that have come out of Matsui’s embracing a new journey. She has worked with everyone from Kirk Whalum, Bob James, Hugh Masekala... and Richard Bona during her 24 year career and has been playing the piano since she was 5 years old. Giving back is important for this Tokyo native who was a part of the recording to support the Japan relief effort after the devastating tsunami with the “Jazz for Japan.” She has also been selfless in her efforts to support breast cancer awareness by performing benefits for the and Susan G. Komen Foundations as well as releasing a 4 song CD entitled Á Gift Of Hope” that benefited the Y-Me Breast Cancer Organization. Just this month her 4 Hand Piano Project with Bob James entitled "Altair & Vega" was released.
We cannot wait to talk to the incredibly gifted Keiko Matsui and learn more about all that keeps her going spiritually and musically.
Join us for a Cool Jazz Conversation with Keiko Matusi at 7pm Eastern
Juxtaposing invigorating otherworldly sonicscapes under tender sax melodies, “Evolve” is a dynamic, highly-rhythmic session that is unpredictable laced with traces of the familiar. Listening will take you to a different place while defining Joyner as a musician and a writer beyond what we have already heard from the chart-topping rhythm and groove guy. The imaginative new set has a greater purpose with the introductory single, “Generation Next,” serving as “a declaration that the next generation of jazz musicians is here to stay. Music evolves, including jazz. All types of sound evolve. So do people and our imaginations. That is what I tried to put on tape. ‘Evolve’ captures the changes in my musical mind and how I have evolved as an artist. Rather than fitting in with the traditional, I’m bringing the audience along with songs that unfold over different and interesting soundscapes even as I move towards a live organic sound,” explains Joyner.
In addition to playing alto and soprano sax on the record, Joyner is a multi-instrumentalist who played many of the instruments heard on the collection along with a couple of high-profile assists from Grammy-nominated sax player Gerald Albright and internationally-renowned keyboardist Keiko Matsui. The collaborations are noteworthy for different reasons. When Joyner was in high school, Albright was his idol thus dueting with him on “Big Step” was a thrill. Joyner tours in Matsui’s band when not performing his own dates and wrote “Europa” with her mind. On a few tracks, he was joined by his touring band – guitarist Kayta Matsuno, bassist Tim Bailey, keyboardist Bill Steinway and drummer Raymond Johnson – to record live in the studio.

Saxophonist Elan Trotman, has quickly become one of contemporary jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers, and continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, and recording artist. So much so that he's becoming the go-to sax-man for smooth jazz artists like Peter White, Paul Brown, Keiko Matsui, Brian Simpson, Rick Braun, and a guest spot on the Dave Koz 2012 Cruise to Europe. Trotman’s playing, though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr. and Kirk Whalum,
