Where to begin about a blonde beauty from Georgia who inherited a love of music from her Grandmother? How about THERE? ;) Carol Albert learned so much as a tiny girl - not only how to play piano but the feel for composition. Her Grandmom dreamed of songs in her sleep. And, even though she lost her arm to cancer, this beloved woman passed along musical knowledge that still inspires Carol today. Classically trained, she has toured Europe several times - she is quite popular overseas. Her previous albums have garnered attention. And this multi-faceted artist has played in front of an unbelievable array of household names - including Muhammed Ali, Jerry Lewis, and Henry Kissinger. Her new work is called "Christmas Mystique" - and you will be brought to your knees by the serene atmosphere that it creates for your soul. Carol joins us in the first hour of the show!
Our long-time friend, Slim Man, visits as well! You know the story that we love to tell - about Mr. Camponseschi bringing little Timoteo to the movies when he was five. There, he saw "The Five Pennies" - and Louis Armstrong rocked his world. The future "Slim Man" would study trumpet - then teach himself how to play piano and guitar. After formal education at Peabody in Baltimore, Tim/Slim was signed to Motown and his songs were recorded by The Temptations, Angela Bofill and more. He formed the group, Boot Camp, favored in the early days of MTV. And a failed partnership with another artist paved the way for his OWN success - when he re-recorded songs for his "End of the Rainbow" introduction to us (insert heart here) :) Now, with a string of popular albums - including the beloved "Christmas Eve" - Slim is anxious to let us know about a special event AND his new cookbook! We'll have wassail in the Chat Room. Ha Ha! Join us!
You may have just viewed a brief description of Renee Rosnes within the parameters of this page. Trust and believe, you cannot be BRIEF when describing her talent! She has been noted as both pianist and composer for a long time - and we bless the day that she moved to New York from Vancouver in order to facilitate her reputation :)
Renee is also an arranger - please make note. And she is The "Go-To" goddess on keys for the filet mignon of artists within Jazz circles. Joe Henderson, Buster Williams, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Hutcherson. They'll TELL you. James Moody asked her to join his elite circle of musical friends in 1989. Renee was with his band until his passing in 2010.
As well as her own endeavors, Renee has taken part in grand events that would exhaust mere mortals. She has been music director for prestigious affairs (one in particular comes to mind to honor her late, beloved boss, James Moody). She has produced at Lincoln Center, has been involved with the SF Jazz Collective, has interviewed for the "Jazz Times", and has hosted her own radio show for Canada's CBC.
Please let her website do the talking, though. One perusal at her "performances" page and you'll see the kinds of company that she keeps. With Jimmy Greene, with Cecile McLoren Salvant, Anat Cohen, Ingrid Jensen, Terri Lyne Carrington, and a mainstay in her life: Ron Carter. One of the most wonderful decisions that Renee has made in her career is to consciously seek out those with whom she has a connection - rare legends have asserted that they have a connection with RENEE. It's no surprise that this amazingly intuitive artist has won multiple Juno Awards. With a birthday coming in March - and with all of these fabulous CD release shows, there is MUCH to celebrate! Join us on 2/9 - and we'll do JUST that!
What a ball to have Jonathan Widran visit us again! Our L.A. Connection has much on his plate - he's a sought-after professional in a number of ways. Jonathan has interviewed hundreds of celebrities - those who are considered Pop and Rock legends. And beloved artists in the world of Jazz. As well, he is keenly observant of what happens in the film industry - having spoken to a studio executives and actors alike. As a member of NARAS for years, he also knows the inner workings of all facets of music. Did I mention that he has a GREAT reputation? You might hear that again ;)
Growing up in Chicago, our guest fell in love with music early in life. He couldn't help it. Knowing his Mom the way many of us do, she made sure that her little boy heard truly fabulous artistry. He especially gravitated to 70's & 80's Pop (Elton John a favorite!) - and his sister laid down the law concerning required listening: to Motown and Philly Soul.
With his sights set on writing, Jonathan graduated from UCLA. Two years later, he was at the Catalina Jazz Trax Festival and the ball started to roll concerning his future. Ideas were exchanged about the growing popularity of Contemporary Jazz - conversations that blossomed with good friend, Dan Margulies. He was the pivotal force that introduced Jonathan to talents like The Rippingtons, David Benoit, and Bill Bergman (you remember the glorious sax from "You Belong to the City?") Blissfully, these convos turned into action. And Jonathan found himself writing for important publications that made a difference in every day lives. About entertainment, leisure, happenings in Los Angeles that readers needed to know - most especially when it came to MUSIC.
The resume is LENGTHY - let Jonathan tell you about it when he visits at one p.m. Eastern on 1/21 - you're gonna be WOWED by the visit!
On this edition of, "Creating Life's New Normal," I have the fortunate opportunity to chat with former Denver Bronco Running back Reggie Rivers.
Mr. Rivers shares his life's lessons from the grid iron and how he has used this platform to propel him into running a successful speaking business, auctioneer, and author.
Mr. Rivers signed with the Denver Broncos in 1991 as an undrafted free agent running back out of Southwest Texas State University (now renamed Texas State University). He played 6 seasons with the Broncos. In 1991, he was named to Pro Football Weekly’s All-Rookie Team as a special teams player and in 1992, he won the Broncos Community Action Player Award in recognition of his volunteer service throughout Colorado.
Here are just a few of Mr. Rivers accomplishments.
In 1992, he won the Bob Martin Award, given annually to the Broncos player who is most cooperative with the media.
In 1993, his teammates selected him as Special Teams Player of the Year.
In 1993, he was named the Broncos NFL Man of the Year for superior athletic and civic performance.
In 1995, he won the NFL Unsung Hero Award in recognition of volunteer efforts.
In 1996, he was named the Broncos NFL Man of the Year for the second time.
Reggie attended Texas State University on a full athletic scholarship. During his collegiate career, he amassed 2,500 career yards and was named to four All-American teams. He was a Southland Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year, and he has been inducted into the Texas State University Hall of Honor and the Southland Conference Hall of Honor.
