Cal Harris Jr.’s upbringing in Los Angeles was not a typical one. His earliest exposure to music took place literally in the company of legends. As the son of Grammy-nominated sound engineer Calvin Harris, Cal Harris Jr. grew up wandering the halls of the renowned Motown Studios in Los Angeles. In fact, one of his fondest childhood memories was a trip to the candy store with Melvin Franklin of the Temptations—a treat he would appreciate even more as an adult. It was within this environment that Harris would develop a love affair with music…and a well-groomed talent.
“I fell in love with arranging music after attending a Commodores session with my dad. It was a great track and I fell asleep as they began working on the orchestration. I woke up a few hours later in a wonder land of music. Soaring strings and horns, and sizzling cymbal swells. It was amazing to hear the transformation, an experience I'll never forget." It's no surprise that Cal Harris Jr. went on to a career as a very sought after sound engineer and producer. He has worked with such music monsters as Earth Wind and Fire, Lenny Kravitz, Prince, Whitney Houston, and Beyonce. Harris found a comfortable niche as a very sought after recording engineer, programmer, and keyboard player for music giants. Still, it wouldn’t be long before he could no longer control the desire to combine his talents and record his very own works. The time had come for Cal Harris Jr. push his abilities to the next level and reveal the gifted composer within him.
Cal has a passion and talent for composition as well as a lifetime of priceless experiences in the industry. He drives home the idea of creating solid, seductive, and infectious melodies through impeccable production. He is involved in nearly every part of his music's production, including writing, keyboards and mixing.

From his groundbreaking synth programming on Miles Davis’ 80s masterpieces Tutu, Music From Siesta and Amandla to his current partnership with DJ Logic and Falu in the pioneering global fusion group Global Noize, the Grammy Award winning New York native—dubbed by one insightful veteran journalist as the “Quincy Jones of Contemporary Music”—has consistently brought the highest level of artistry to his multi-faceted recordings (as both producer and artist) and live performances.
Miles has not only helped shape the landscape of contemporary jazz, but also brought his rich sonic textures as a keyboardist, arranger and producer to artists in a multitude of genres, from R&B/pop to Latin Jazz, Brazilian music and even children’s music and country (producing Suzy Boguss’ Sweet Danger).
His many years of collaboration with Marcus Miller include not only the Miles Davis projects but also classic recordings by David Sanborn (A Change of Heart, Close Up, Upfront) and Luther Vandross (The Power of Love, Any Love, Give Me the Reason). Committed to pushing the envelope of sonic possibilities and bringing out the best in the artists and musicians he vibes with, Miles has worked over the years with a proverbial who’s who of contemporary music: Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Michael Brecker, The Crusaders, Ruben Blades, Freddy Cole, George Benson, Joe Sample, Herb Alpert., Vanessa Williams, Grover Washington Jr, Lea Salonga.
In addition to conceiving, producing and arranging two very successful tribute recordings dedicated to Grover, Miles—who did the synth programming on Washington’s 1987 album Strawberry Moon --has paid tribute to the late sax great in an even more intimate way: by producing and executive producing Grover Live...More abou this on the show..

Yes, I had to shout-out Vel Lewis regarding his multiple talents! Keyboardist, Organist (actually, a multi-instrumentalist), Composer, Arranger, Producer and Vocalist - guess I need not explain further ;)
Our versatile and unstoppable guest was born in The City of Brotherly Love - and it didn't take long in his professional life for other artists to demonstrate how MUCH they DID love Vel Lewis. While still VERY young, he was asked to join a televised Jazz program in Philadelphia. This led to studio work - and it paved the way for an association with Ira Tucker, Sr., lead singer with the Dixie Hummingbirds. Vel found himself on the Paul Simon song, "Love Me Like a Rock" and on Stevie Wonder's "Jesus Children of America."
Meanwhile, Vel was in a group that was growing in popularity - The Futures. They were signed to Philly International Records and performing alongside Grover Washington Jr., The O'Jays and The Supremes. The Futures had a name change, but that surely did not affect Vel's popularity - HE was now working with more A-list talent - household names.
Along the way, he found the time to compose music for "The Sopranos", "Fresh Prince of Bel Air", "Mad About You" and more. And he was able to focus on his own music for the career that he wished to have for VEL LEWIS :) After all those years of making sure other artists sounded great when he added his personal touch, it was time to concentrate on what he could do as leader of the band. You'll see his discography when you visit Vel Lewis Dot Com. And you'll hear tracks from "Colors Of Soul" when Vel drops by on 7/8. Once you hear his music, you'll know that he made a "sound" decision! Please join us - we've got some surprises in store for you on this show ;)
