June 27 - Jazz Trumpeter - Winston Byrd
After nearly 3 years, Winston Byrd returns for, what I am sure will be, another fabulous interview. Winston was initially bitten by the 'jazz bug' as a seventh grader when he heard Maynard Ferguson's playing of 'Give It One.' Soon after, he witnessed Dizzy Gillespie and Jon Faddis trading solos on 'Groovin High' on a 1986 Grammy Awards telecast. And the rest is history.
Winston has performed, recorded, and/or toured with a myriad of big name jazz and pop artists and orchestras including The Chi-Lites, Patti Austin, The Dells, The Grateful Dead, Lionel Hampton, Michael Bolton, Illinois Jacquet Big Band, Roy Hargrove Big Band, Pieces Of A Dream, Claudio Roditi, David Murray, Oliver Lake Big Band, Larry Coryell, Aretha Franklin, Charles Tolliver Big Band, The Stylistics, Natalie Cole, Arturo Sandoval, The Village Vanguard Orchestra, Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), Chucho Valdes, Louie Bellson, T.S. Monk, David 'Fathead' Newman, Chaka Khan, Clark Terry (who suprise-guested with Winston on his All-Star 31st birthday concert!), James Moody, The Dramatics, Shirley Horn, Paquito d' Rivera, Lucky Peterson, Bernard Purdie, Diane Schuur, Don Rickles, Usher, Abbey Lincoln and the Charles Mingus Big Band among others!
I cannot wait to chat about what he's been up to, and what is coming up next for him.

This is the first time that I could actually list an artist - from A to Z - that Winston Byrd has had in his circle. He has played trumpet for over two decades with the best of the best...ready for a taste of that alphabetized list? Abbey Lincoln/Blood, Sweat & Tears/Chaka Khan/Dells/Ellington's Orchestra/Fathead Newman/Grateful Dead/Horn (as in Shirley)/ I - as in Will.I.Am - whew! It goes ON and on!
Winston hails from Wilmington, Delaware - so he heard the music of the extended Philadelphia region, as well as New Jersey and New York. What steered him in his musical journey, initially, was feeling the sound of Maynard Ferguson (in seventh grade!) - then seeing Dizzy Gillespie with Jon Faddis on the 1986 Grammy telecast. Jon actually became a mentor - and introduced our guest to some pivotal admirers who would pave the way for more awesome associations. And SO much work! Music that was developed "on the road" as opposed to what could have been learned in the classroom. Part of that amazing journey revolves around the artistry that Winston has developed with big bands. Orchestras. He loves ALL of it, though. Way beyond HYBRID, this one! LOL! This is Multiple Genre Magic that Winston Byrd has cultivated.
Two albums to his credit - and we'll hear tracks from both. "Soul Searchin'" and "The Tao of Pooh" bring to your ears a full fruition of all that expertise he has brought to performances and projects by other artists. If you do the research, you'll see one rave review after another from fans of trumpet who cannot believe what they're hearing. Winston Byrd is THAT good :)
What we'll have for you is superb music and conversation - and a special July 4th show. Gather friends and join us!

Tonight join me as I welcome back Nikki and Pete Newcomb from Borderless Comics and newcomer to Angel's Asylum Vampirella writer Nancy Collins !
Today Nancy Varner will share her testimony. Born and raised in Charleston South Carolina Nancy and her family started attending North Charleston United Methodist Church when she was 11. She was involved in their Youth Fellowship and singing in the youth choir. While at North Charleston she met, fell in love, and married Gregg. They’ve been married for nearly 39 years. Gregg pastors Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church in Lydia, South Carolina, a congregation they love very much.
Nancy originally shared this message when Gregg attended an Annual Conference a few years ago. The congregation’s response was encouraging and they told others. So Nancy humbly began sharing this message with about twenty five churches including women’s groups.
About a year ago, through God's guidance that at first glance would appear to be coincidence, Nancy found Kenneth and John’s Tribulation Now ministry and these SDG Bible studies. Then the Lord “nudged” her to change up the end of this message as her eyes were opened to the fact that we are right on the precipice of Jesus’ soon return. This knowledge drove Nancy back to her first love of the Lord like a freight train, filling her with a love and compassion for the lost.
Now Nancy has a burning in her heart to tell all who will listen about the long-suffering grace of God and how He patiently waited on her to return to Him like the prodigal son. Our Father longs for a love relationship with each one of us and what He did for Nancy He will do for you!
Their ministry has brought joys and blessing beyond all Gregg and Nancy could ever ask or imagine and she’s forever grateful to Gregg for encouraging her to share this message of salvation and hope. Nancy also thanks Pastor Tom Evatt and North Charleston United Methodist Church and of course God for the strong Christian foundation they provided her.
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Nancy Johnson joins me to talk about her book: Shenandoah: Daughter of the Stars (A Civil War Story)
During the turbulent years of the Civil War, three young people struggle to follow their dreams as the war devastates their homeland and their way of life in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Hannah Yeager works hard on her family’s farm and teaches young children in a nearby school. She and her parents remain loyal to the Union. Secretly her fourteen-year-old heart thrills to romantic literature. She dreams that someday she will find a true love. When she does, he is a handsome Confederate colonel. The strong female character of Hannah will appeal to girls who often see the Civil War as all about the boys.
Tune in live Friday at 11AM EST and call in or chat to join the discussion or listen to the archive.
