    "Up Close & Personal" with composer, keyboardist "Jonathan Fritzen"

    in Music

    Jonathan Fritzen


    Take one of the hottest composers and keyboard players in instrumental pop, add in featured performances from the likes of Gerald Albright, Paul Taylor and Nils Landgren, hook them up with ten wonderful new tunes and what do you have?  The answer is ‘Fritzenized’, the latest album from the Billboard chart-topping, artist Jonathan Fritzén.

    It is the Swedish American’s fifth solo CD and follows the critically acclaimed ‘Magical’ from which the title cut blasted a path to #1 on every smooth jazz airplay chart on the planet.

    The fact that even before it’s release date, ‘Fritzenized’ has already become a chart topper says much for a collection that, two years in the making, is Fritzén’s most personal to date.  Writing, producing and (for the first time) mixing every track, he comes closer to his true musical vision than with any other project he has created so far.

    The Choices in Low Income Areas

    in Christianity

    The choices of most people living in low income areas always amazes me. Not everyone in these areas makes the same choices. I have been looking around to see who uy wat and why. I have seen people in need of food but choose to buy beer rather than food. I have seen store owners of convience stores in these areas allow peoploe to buy illegal items with food stamps. No convience store is to see single cigarettes out of a pack of 20 but many store owners in low income sell single cigarettes. These are only a few of the things that is wrong.

  • Up Close & Personal with Cool Bassist of The New Cool "Nathan East"

    in Music

    Masterfully “Cool”: An album unlike any other by

    Bob James and Nathan East


    “The New Cool,” an expansive acoustic offering centered on scholarly jazz piano and bass duets, will be released September 18, a first from the GRAMMY®-honored artists and long-time collaborators. 


    Nashville, Tennessee (7 July 2015): Albums just aren’t made like the way “The New Cool” was made. Yamaha Entertainment Group label president Chris Gero put legendary keyboardist Bob James and master bassist Nathan East in the recording studio, equipped them with state-of-the-art Yamaha gear and gave them free reign to create. Recorded entirely in Nashville, the long-time collaborators emerged with an unexpected and audacious collection of original compositions plus a few handpicked classics, an acoustic jazz outing that will make you forget everything you thought you knew about these GRAMMY®-recognized artists best known as contemporary jazz luminaries. The disc produced by Gero, James and East will be released September 18.     


    “The New Cool” unfolds much in the way the meticulously-crafted project was conceived. The germ begins organically with a couple of intimate James and East duets. Pastoral piano wanderings explore the outer perimeter of straight-ahead jazz where they peruse, mirror and engage with meandering bass lines. In fact, more than half of the record’s compositions written by James and/or East are sparsely-produced, probing piano and bass sojourns.

    Be Forever Young- Lifestyle choices

    in Business

    Special Guest: Louise Harisson, The Beatles's Legend, George Harisson's Big Sister, THE FOREVER YOUNG PRINCESS

    What is  the relationship between people and plants? What is the relationship between you and the planet?

    is your ecological footprint a result of your behaviour as a consumer?

    Scientific studies show that as a parent, you can influence your baby at very early stages in their life ( ages 0-3 year old) to a healthy lifestyle, and the chances are that your baby will become 27% healthier and, later in life, make better lifestyle choices, mirroring the same lifestyle as their parents.

    As a parent, the level of your income determines what foods you put on the table, the time you allocate for outdoor activities and exercise, the living environment you provide for your children. Your children have no choice but to be part of your lifestyle choices. When you involve yourself in unhealthy,poverty-related stress release activities, like smoking, drinking or depression, you are the part of your child learning process.

    Are your beliefs affecting your lifestyle? Do you engage in " green" consumptions of energy, organic foods, outdoor activities, farming activities, to consume fewer resources and produce less harmful waste? Are your lifestyle choices deriving a sense of self from making choices that can protect the environment, even in a small way? Is our modern society able to create healthy lifestyle options to further help individuals to choose "green" products ? What is your lifestyle saying about you?

John gives credit to other heavy influences aside from family members such as Jaco Pastorius, Marcus Miller, Dave Holland, Ron Carter, John Patitucci, Nathan East, Fred Hammond, and Joel Smith.

In his career thus far, he has worked with gospel artist Lejuene Thompson, musical director for Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Stephanie Mills, contemporary jazz artists Brian Simpson, Matt Marshak, Jeff Kashiwa, Steve Cole, Walter Beasley, Nick Colionne, Marc Antoine, and Four80East.

    Accessing your Personal Power with Les Jensen

    in Spirituality

    We all have more power to discover about ourselves. Each one of us is an infinite being, having a human experience. Yet, if you cannot convert your own personal power into effect, then your power has no way to actually change your life. To understand what your own personal power is, and then how to bring it into your everyday living, is to make the power have effect in your own personal life.

    Your Soul has a vision for your life. It knows your potential. Yet if you can't get your ego onboard, well, then it doesn't make much difference. Love is the source of authentic power. Your heart is the center of your power. Take the time to understand the nature of yourself as a powerful, capable human being.
