  • 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.

    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.
