    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Alison Crockett!

    in Music

    This has been written once already, but I needed to re-do.  When you have had a journey like Alison Crockett's, paying attention to details is important.
    Education is much discussed these days, and Alison's has paved the way for her to be an educator - as well as an astounding vocalist and entrepreneur.  Sidwell Friends, Duke Ellington School for the Arts, Temple University, and Manhattan School of Music (Masters!)
    The groundwork for piano and voice, having had the seeds planted at fabulous schools, swelled and blossomed at gigs from New York to Philly to Washington, DC - Alison's hometown.
    It was in the City of Brotherly Love where she met DJ/Producer, King Britt, from Digable Planets.  Promptly nicknamed "Diva Blue", Alison was asked to join the Sylk 130 project, "When the Funk Hits the Fan."  That's considered reverence-worthy in many circles, especially in consideration of the favorite, "Seasons Change", on the album.  There you hear Alison's voice, which got attention overseas.  Geoff Wilkinson of the popular Acid-Jazz group, Us3, thought that he was hearing someone from another time - Shirley Bassey...Dinah Washington.  He tracked our guest to the States and persuaded her to work with him in England.  "Get Out" in 1994 made the Top 10 in Japan, so touring was in order. 
    Fast forward to a 2001 EP - then 2003 and "On Becoming a Woman" - with release worldwide - then marriage and motherhood.  And that unleashed a new spectrum of creativity :)
    Having shared the stage with household names and traveled the globe with respected artists, Alison has settled into a "place" in life that has enabled her to soar - artistically and articulately.  Hear how via our interview on 7/31. Tracks from the new "Mommy, What's a Depression?" will also be heard!

    THE 2011 MUSIC CONVERSATION w/ DCtoBC.com's MODI!

    in Hip Hop Music

    Modele "Modi" Oyewole is a rising music tastemaker, influencer and celebrity. At 24, the Sidwell Friends high school and Boston College graduate (hence DC to BC) has set a path that that we haven't seen in hip hop locally since Puffy was at Howard University. Hosting events, successful brand campaigns, viral marketing, being chosen by Vibe Magazine as a hip hop power blogger of note, working as an intern with Complex Magazine and having more limitless potential than anyone under the age of 30 in the city, to get 45 minutes of this very successful young man's time is a victory in its own right. On TGRI Radio, we're going to talk about Modi's thoughts on music in 2011, where it's headed and how it's going to get there. A fascinating discussion of technology, culture and music should ensue! Tune in!
