    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Halie Loren!

    in Music

    What a time to have an episode of "Hybrid Jazz" - it's the beginning of Autumn, the start of Libra, it's Yom Kippur, and the Pope is in the USA :)  How do we celebrate?  HALIE LOREN!

    This Alaskan-born award-winner has had quite a journey - and she is still so young!  She made her performing debut at 10, her family moved to Oregon three years later - and she won accolades for her songwriting when she was still a TEEN!

    Halie also had the maturity to live in Nashville for a time, soaking up the music wisdom of the city and learning the ropes of the business - before she headed back to Oregon for continued education.  She has never STOPPED pursuing her education, in terms of perfecting her craft.  Already blessed with a unique and distinctive way of interpretation, Halie is also extraordinarily smart.  She knew early in her career that overseas audiences embraced her, so she has made it a point to release her music there first - which paved the way for more notoriety in the States.

    Her debut in 2006 generated MUCH interest.  Her sophomore project, "They Oughtta Write a Song" won an Just Plan Folks (Independent) Award for Best Jazz Vocal.  And it was the second-highest selling album in Japan.  Halie's name is actually known all over the world - because of smart distribution and the attraction of sophisticated audiences to a true talent.

    Her latest CD - after growing success of six prior efforts - is called "Butterfly Blue", released in the USA this past June. Halie, by this time, has acquired growing intrigue in more than just Jazz circles.  Her songs reflect the diversity of her FULL range: Blues, Folk, Pop and Soul as well as the music that she enhances effortlessly: Jazz.  There is so much more to say about Halie!  But you'll hear it ALL on 9/24 - and you'll love what you hear :)

Returning home, as a jazz pianist, Gail performed with several jazz bands, and other popular Philadelphia artists.

  • Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Internationally Heralded Luis Munoz!

    in Music

    Luis Munoz might not live in Costa Rica any longer - but he takes his homeland with him whenever he composes and plays. He is able to bring his country's folklore and rhythm to music in a way that defies description.  Lush, tranquil, passionate.  He moves your mind geographically to locations where you have never been physically.  But you can feel the outlay of the land when you hear the direction of the song.  It's unbelievable.

    Educated in both music and architechture, Luis finished his degree in the former at the University of California, Santa Barbara - where he now resides.  Under some amazing tutelage, Luis found his way in composition - he has worked with documentaries, animated films, dance and theater projects.  In the late 80's, he made his way into the recording end of the business.  In the 90's, more work that honed his intuituve skills.  By 2004, "Downbeat" was singing his praises.  "Vida" was named "Best Latin Jazz CD - and, in 2006 - Luis was recognized by his birthplace for Best Jazz Composer/Producer.

    "Of Soul and Shadow" and "Invisible" followed - two immensely respected works that brought more international recognition. With "Luz" in 2013, Luis introduced the amazing voices of Magos Herrera and Teka Penteriche.  At that point in his career, he was overwhelmed with the praise for his musicianship and creativity.  With "Voz", he takes both to new levels.  Bringing Magos and Teka back to the studio - with the addition of Claudia Acuna, he has imbued a new sense of truth into the mix. With mostly voice on this album, the listener is engaged in the moment - with both original and beloved songs - that will compel you to travel.  You may not have a ticket - but you WILL travel.  The best vacation EVER :)  Join us on 9/29 at two p.m. Eastern.
