Join me this Sunday, April 13, 2014, at 3:00pm, when I will speak with and play the music of Akua Allrich, vocalist, composer and teacher. She is a Washington, DC native whose musical roots are vast and grounded in jazz and pan-African music. She sings in many languages including Portuguese, French, Spanish, English, Xhosa, and Twi. She was educated at Howard University, where she obtained her BM in jazz vocals and a master’s degree in social work. She was taught, coached and mentored by talented musicians such as world-renowned singer Kehembe V. Eichelberger, singer/drummer Grady Tate, and pianist Charles Covington. While she was in college, one of the first jazz albums she bought was John Coltrane’s Live at the Village Vanguard: The Master Takes.
Les Sabler may have been raised in Canada - but his musical tastes took him to someplace decidedly warmer. Not only did he move to Florida in 1978, but he traveled to Brazil for a very special reason - to get closer to the memory of Antonio Carlos Jobim.
But we may be getting ahead of ourselves here. Let's rewind to the days of Concordia University in Montreal, where our widely respected guitarist received his formal training as a Jazz major. He was hungry to pursue a graduate degree in his studies, so he made a radical cultural change by attending the University of Miami. There, he immersed himself in the wildly eclectic music scene - falling in love with Latin rhythms - and one particular Brazilian artist whose work he would play for years to come .
Now, mind you, our guest had many influences from an early age. And Les has been performing and recording for quite some time - his first project was in 1989. There has been beautiful albums that have garnered true success and have enabled Les to headline or open for such notables as Spyro Gyra, Diane Schuur and a multitude of others. Also, his interpretations of Earth, Wind and Fire's "Reasons" and Sting's "Fragile" got a lot of attention. So, his career hasn't been focused on just one style or artist.
But it's this NEW CD that has been noteworthy for Les Sabler. Because of the passion involved in the journey FOR it to be made. The love for the master whose music Les captures effortlessly. And the timing for this magic to happen. "Jobim Tribute" arrives during the 50th anniversary of "The Girl From Ipanema" - and 20 years since Sabler's hero passed away.
When you travel to Brazil in order for the music to translate authentically, it means everything. That's who Les Sabler is! Join me in welcoming him on 4/22!

JacniqueMusic Radio talks with 6-time Grammy Nominee as both a recording artist and arranger, Tierney Sutton.
Sutton is often described as “a singer’s singer,” but just as often, she is described as a “musician’s singer” who uses her voice like an instrument.
Most recently, Tierney received her 5th consecutive Grammy Nomination for “Best Jazz Vocal Album” for her latest project, “After Blue,” an intimate, jazz-inspired re-imagining of the legacy of Joni Mitchell. The album, which is Sutton’s first solo outing without her longtime Band, features Al Jarreau, Hubert Laws, Peter Erskine, Larry Goldings, Serge Merlaud, Kevin Axt and The Turtle Island Quartet.
Spanning over 20years of collaboration, the Tierney Sutton Band’s 9 CDs have consistently topped the US jazz charts, leading to Tierney’s selection as Jazzweek’s Vocalist of the Year as well as to numerous other accolades in the music world including a 2011 Grammy nomination for the Band’s collaborative arranging.
She has headlined in recent years at The Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and Jazz At Lincoln Center. She can also be heard on film and television soundtracks including The Academy Award-nominated film “The Cooler” as well as on television commercials (BMW, Green Giant, Yoplait Yogurt, Coke)
