When you see Joanna Pascale's website, you'll see the quote from her regarding her new project. She says, "Wildflowers grow unter the most unlikely circumstances. You'll find them in the most unlikely places. From the beginning, that's how my journey has been."
Joanna Pascale IS a "Wildflower." Strong and resilient, unexpectedly beautiful and unique. Her presence in the world of Jazz is appreciated - this writer speaks for many. She LOVES the music, is grateful for the Masters and Mistresses that came before her, and dearly craves to bring those voices from the past to YOU - in her OWN voice :) And what a gift that is!
When Joanna was attending Philadelphia's High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, a fellow student and friend was Bilal. He joins her on "Wildflower", as does someone who has known her for equally as long. That's the well-respected pianist - and producer for this album - Orrin Evans. Who else is on this spectacular effort is enough to make your ears burn until the end of 2015! Let's just say The BEST of the Best.
The new work from Joanna comes at a time when a successful ten-year run at Philly's Loew's Hotel was coming to an end. Sad as it was for all concerned, it gave our guest wings. She was ready to get involved in HER music, having blessed other artists with her vocals on THEIRS. She still has her day job at her alma mater, Temple University, and she reaches hundreds of students each year with her teaching abilities. But this is where Joanna shines in a particular way. She won't touch a song unless she feels it. When she soaks her soul into the meaning of a classic, it's like you never heard the song before NOW. This Lady Was Born To Sing.
Join Joanna and me on 5/5 - your ears will thank you!

Viki Winterton interviews Orrin "Checkmate" Hudson!
Orrin Hudson was watching the news one night in 2000 when he saw a story about seven employees shot, execution style—for $2,000 in the cash register.
That’s when he realized evil prevails when good people do nothing. He sold his business and founded Be Someone to teach something positive to inner city kids: the focus, discipline and patience required by the game of chess.
As a former law enforcement officer, Orrin believes that prevention is better than detention, and the new currency on the planet is KASH with a K: K for Knowledge, A for Attitude, S for Skills, and H for Habits. KASH is KING. Once you get it, no one can take it away.
Since then, he’s helped over 30,000 kids develop the practical skills and techniques to overcome obstacles in life, illustrated through the best and most intellectual visual aid: the chessboard.
