NWP is proud to welcome Lee Greenwood an ICON in country music. Lee tells us where he was on 9/11 and some close calls he has had while entertaining our troops abroad and much more!
His latest CD is: "I Want to be in Your World", Lee wrote three of the seven songs & plays saxophone on the original track, “Here Comes Love There Goes My Heart”. Mega hit “God Bless the USA” went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote it in the back of his tour bus in 1983. The song has been in the top five on the country singles charts three times (1991, 2001 and 2003), giving it the distinction of being the only song in any genre of music to achieve that feat. It was also #1 on the pop charts after 9/11/01. “USA is the song I always felt the need to write”. “I wanted to have something that would unite Americans from coast to coast and to instill pride back in the United States. http://www.leegreenwood.com http://www.facebook.com/northwestprime

Listen, for a guy who didn't pick up the saxophone until he was 28, Dee Lucas is catching UP! WHOA! Dee is now an internationally known artist with a now fifth album under his belt. We're so looking forward to his visit because this is his second go-round on "Hybrid Jazz" - and there seems to be so much that has changed - all positive.
And DATES - this man has a slew of live events coming up - each one will be discussed. One of those brings him to our region. In the shadow of Washington, D.C. There is no doubt that Dee will have a sold-out crowd at Firestation 1 in Silver Spring, Maryland - that's September 20th. But he also has big shows happening in his home base, Georgia, and in Los Angeles, too.
If you've been keeping up with the career of Dee Lucas, then you're already impressed. 2004 marked his debut with "Remembrance" - a tribute to one of his musical inspirations, George Howard. In 2007, we heard "Something To Ride 2" - followed by "Standing Room Only" in 2010. The next year, it was "Rebirth of the Smooth." That's when Dee first stopped by - and we had a blast!
Earlier this year, "The Smooth Factor" was released - and audiences from all over the globe are, once again, smitten. When we hear three tracks from the CD you'll hear why :) You don't get to work with Hugh Masekela, Ronnie Laws, Nneena Freelon and Michael Franks unless you're something SPECIAL. Dee has consistently shown us how much.
Matter-of-fact, our mutual friend, Jonathan Widran, said it best at Dee's website. Jonathan calls what Dee does "soulful mastery." We, his fans, couldn't agree more!
Please join us for a musical reunion - when Dee Lucas joins us on 8/26 at two p.m. Eastern.

ERIC DEMMER - "Hear What You Feel; Play What You Hear"
At the age of 10, ERIC found a saxophone under the Christmas tree. So began the journey of a natural-born musician, playing anywhere at any time with anyone. He grew up steeped in the blues and rock and roll of the 70's and 80's. He absorbed the sounds of The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, B.B. King, and fellow Texan, Stevie Ray Vaughn. One night, ERIC was invited to perform onstage with the legendary Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. From that night forward, ERIC joined Gate's band and traveled all over the world for the next 12 years, until Gate's death in 2005. The journey with "Gate's" band led them to tour extensively as the opening act for Eric Clapton during his "From The Cradle" tour.
ERIC has performed with many well-known and respected musicians: Carlos Santana, B.B. King, George Duke, Joe Sample, David Sanborn, Todd Rundgren, Shamika Copeland, Johnnie "Clyde" Copeland, Johnnie "Be Good" Johnson (pianist with Chuck Berry), Duke Robillard, Buddy Guy, Delbert McClinton, The Allman Brothers, Dr. John, Kim Wilson, and many others.
ERIC describes his style of music as, "high energy, funky blues with a mix of jazz" and combines a variety of influences while reminding everyone that, "The real thing comes from the heart and soul".
ERIC has peformed at a multitude of venues, but here are some of his INTERNATIONAL favorites:
Camille Thurman was born in St. Albans, NY. She is a saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, composer, and educator. Her lush, velvety, rich, warm sound on tenor saxophone has been compared to tenor greats Gene Ammons, Dexter Gordon and Lester Young. Camille’s ability to sing four octaves and perform vocalese greatly influences audiences reminiscent of Minnie Riperton, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. Her ability to take the sounds evocative of yesteryear’s legends and creatively pair them with the nuances, edge ad freshness of today’s music not only expanded the possibilities of jazz in the the upcoming generation but gained her the respect of audiences in Israel, Switzerland, and around the world. An accomplished performer and composer, Camille shared the stage with Dr. Billy Taylor, Benny Golson, Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys and other jazz and R&B icons. Camille leads her own quartet, which toured Russia, performed at the International Women in Jazz Festival, Super Jazz Ashdod Israel Jazz Festival, and others worldwide. She has appeared on BET’s Black Girls Rock as the saxophonist in the All Star Band and has performed at venues including the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and the Jazz Standard, just to name a few. Camille released two albums on the Hot Tone Music Label –Origins and Spirit Child.
John Klemmer (born July 3, 1946) is an American saxophonist, composer, song writer and arranger.
He was born in Chicago, Illinois, and began playing guitar at the age of 5 and alto saxophone at the age of 11. His other early interests included graphics and visual art, writing, dance, puppetry, painting, sculpting and poetry. He studied at schools that include The Art Institute of Chicago and began touring with various local midwest "ghost big bands" (Les Elgart, Woody Herman) as well as playing with small local jazz and rock groups. After switching to tenor saxophone in high school, Klemmer participated actively in the local Chicago jazz scene, playing with commercial small groups and big bands while leading his own groups in the Chicago area and touring.Klemmer had extensive studies in music, taking private lessons as a youth and in college in piano, conducting, harmony, theory, composition, arranging, clarinet, flute and classical and jazz saxophone. He studied saxophone and jazz improvisation with noted Chicago saxophonist and teacher Joe Daley. He attended the prestigious Interlochen's National Music Camp. The year he graduated from high school, Klemmer was signed by producer Esmond Edwards at Cadet/Chess Records, eventually recording five albums with Cadet/Chess, including his innovative hit album, Blowin Gold (co-produced by ex-Rolling Stones producer Marshall Chess). This album was considered by many as the first of the jazz/rock fusion genre; follow-up albums introduced innovative rock rhythms, sounds and production techniques and debuted electronic effects with the saxophone that became his now trademark delay sound.
Public Speaking: People in many different capacities have a fear of speaking in public. Public speaking is a required skill; from performing live in concert to conducting live television interviews. Presentation, preparedness and being versed on a variety of topics and current events will aid an artist for their “moments” in the public’s eye.
Etiquette: Whether it is dinner with a label executive or lunch with Oprah Winfrey, basic etiquette and manners are what will ultimately provide the basis for character judgment. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. Polish and shine are provided for the artist and we equip them with social interaction skills. It is what makes the difference between a rock and a diamond.
Vocal Care / Technique: Observe the pristine care a professional musician gives to his or her instrument, be it a saxophone, a conga drum or a guitar. The quality and care for the instrument is directly related to the quality and efficiency of the performance. Talent is the medium. We instruct and encourage the artist to treat the voice as an instrument and practice the proper techniques of vocal use and vocal care.
Travel / Touring: Every artist hopes to go on tour and have direct consumer contact in a variety of markets. The artist is provided with helpful hints. Advice is given on packing, touring and travel to provide an artist with basic knowledge to facilitate both national and international touring and avoid major mishaps, confusion and cultural faux pas.
Photo Shoots / EPK: In today’s market, one cannot overestimate the importance of creating exciting visuals for the artist. In an era of audiovisual explosion, capturing the right image is of the utmost importance.
