Paul H. Jenkins, Ph.D. is a Psychologist, Author and Speaker. Please join us tonight as he discusses his brand new book: Pathological Positivity. Is the glass half empty or half full?
Dr. Jenkins works with organizations and individuals to establish and maintain habitual patterns of positive perception and focus that increase happiness, engagement, productivity, profit, and ultimate achievement of professional and personal life missions.
With two decades of experience as a professional psychologist, Dr. Paul (as he is known to clients and his audiences) lays out the how and the why behind the art and science of being constructive in an often destructive environment.

His clients, readers, and audiences get an iron grip on powerful Pathological Positivity principles that make an immediate difference in their personal and professional lives.

When Willie Bradley decides to give us The Full Package, he gives it full throttle. And it's funny that yours truly just said that, because one of the many bands that Willie's talent graced was called "The Package Band." :)
Seriously, this man has street cred as few have. A graduate of South Carolina State with Music Education and Performance mastery, Willie then made his way through a myriad of groups and genres. That trumpet gained access to the "inner circles" of Jazz - and he spent time with Betty Carter, Clark Terry, Frank Foster, Max Roach, and Dizzy Gillespie. On the other end of the music rainbow, Willie also opened for or played with Fourplay, Joey Sommerville, Bobby Blue Bland and more. So you see where this is going - our guest has a resume that's all encompassing. Okay, he's hip to Hybrid - that's what we need to say!
On our guest's CD, he utilizes all of what he has learned through these years of playing the straight ahead, the contemporary, the Funk, the Soul, the Gospel - and he ties it together with the help of a special believer: Nicholas Cole. Bradley and Cole have co-written most of the songs on the album - which are pretty incredible! Then, they enlisted the services of other artists that bring a certain pop and flow to a wholly organic endeavor. You're familiar with Lin Rountree, Marcus Anderson, and Jeff Kashiwa, I take it. Yeah, like THAT!
The last time some of us saw Willie was when he was with the All-Stars in Virginia - delivering a delicious stew of tasty trumpet that ebbed and flowed with the band in a most scintillating way. Christian de Mesones can back me up on that - because he was adamant about having Willie THERE :) It was some kind of night.
And there are MORE events coming - that's why Willie is visiting! Join us on 8/28 and discover Willie Bradley!
You're right - it's RARE that I would place such a strong adjective in front of a guest's name. Here'w why: it's important for you to remember Patrick Bradley. It's that simple. But...maybe simple is not the word here :)
See, Patrick "daylights" as a regional President of Whole Foods! Already, he's different, right? In more ways than one! Check it out: he started at age 8 on a bargain basement organ. And self-taught! He played in Church for several years, all the while becoming immersed in the Beatles, Elton John, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Oh - and Rick Wakeman from the group, Yes. That particular influence stayed with Patrick - when you hear the Moog synthesizer on his new CD - you'll smile.
Classical music training in college and Jazz appreciation on the side - gravitating to Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. From school, he joined a five piece Rock band called "Joshua" - that group released an album in 1986, "Surrender." At age 24, Patrick decided to focus on a career that was more stable. With a wife and children, organic food retail seemed sensible.
While working for Whole Foods in Chicago, we came to know Patrick via his debut, "Come Rain or Shine." He was promoted to the Southern California division of the company and was able to record his second project, "Under the Sun." This was a partnership with Jeff Lorber, who was suggested by Patrick's mutual friend, Dave Koz.
He's REALLY good at being an executive at his exceptionally successful day job, but when you hear Patrick Bradley PLAY - and that means piano, organ and Moog - WHOA. We're kinda hoping that the music thingie takes over ;) Especially since the personnel on this album is so HOT! You'll have to wait to hear who when Patrick joins us on 9/16!
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.
Our beautiful artist from Oxnard, California has joined us on the show before this - but THIS time, Geneva Renee has big news! A Blues Alley event - showcasing that warm and glorious voice - will be held soon.
You must certainly understand that this is a big deal from a small town on the West Coast. Coming to Washington D.C., a few years ago to attend Howard University, our guest must have known that it was going to take some work to achiveve success. There are so many wonderful artists in this region! Well, she not only has achieved some enviable success - but the attention on her is something special. So far, she has performed in front of director Spike Lee and two Presidents. She won the local NBC affiliate's competition for a VIP audition - for the wildly successful TV show, "The Voice." AND Geneva has shared the stage with dozens of performers - some are household names. Diana Ross and Vanessa Williams and Hugh Jackman. We could fill a PAGE with artists!
Our mezzo soprano has a project called "Beautiful Wonder" - and some of the songs on the album have come under close scrutiny for the BEST reasons. We'll talk about that and play a few tracks. And we'll learn how her inspirations: Kathleen Battle, Yolanda Adams, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston continue to propel her. Geneva wants to keep expanding her horizons and attracting the right kind of attention. Like, for example, Grammy consideration for a song that she wrote (it happened!).
Join us for a special show on 8/21 - just an hour, starting at two p.m. Eastern - we'll get the lowdown on what makes a California Girl tick. You'll be delighted by what you'll learn :)
For those who were paying attention (ahem!), you might have seen that Kim Waters was scheduled for 8/19. As it turned out, Kim wrote to apologize - because he discovered that his plane to Washington, D.C. was going to be IN THE AIR at the time of our interview. Or close to it. Sooooo, yours truly figured that the only solution was to create a special show just for Kim. Hence, our two hour "Hybrid Jazz" on Wednesday!
Gracious, there's a LOT going on with Kim since we last spoke. And he'll fill you in on ALL of it. A beautiful wife, a new life, a 25 year anniversary in the music business, a CD dropping next month - and a terrific event planned at one of our popular venues in the region. I TOLD you!
Kim's used to this excitement, though. Of course he is - this is the consummate saxophonist who has had four # 1 albums, more than a dozen # 1 singles, and plays to packed and appreciative houses wherever he goes. He was raised in Maryland - and is considered a beloved "Hometown Hero" in this state. Although he lives in Texas now, he finds time to return to his roots whenever possible.
Get ready for the energy that you'll hear when Kim visits - you've been given a lot of reasons as to why - but let's get specific about this upcoming musical project. Called "Silver Soul", it's Kim at his best - and he has fantastic help to deliver the message. The golden throated magic of Eric Roberson, the beautifully youthful exhuberance of Zendaya, and the romantic partnership of Kim's lovely wife, Dana Pope - it's all wrapped up with a velvet bow - and given an extra touch by one of Kim's exquisite daughters as musical accompaniment. NOW you know why this visit from our friend is important. Because it's all about FAMILY :)
The fun at one - Kim joins us at two p.m. on 8/20!
It's absolutely wonderful to have our friend, Patrick Yandall, return to us! Even COOLER - that we're having the pleasure of his company right before his Birthday (September 5th!)
Patrick has had a beautifully rich career - not only because of the success of singles and albums (he can certainly boast of number one status more than once!) - but because he has had music on such diverse sources. TV shows: "Girls" on HBO and "Shameless" on Showtime. His song, "Who's the Bossa Now" was included in the John Cusack/Marissa Tomei film, "War, Inc." - and "Mr. Fattburger" was in the much acclaimed, Sundance award-winning, "Fruitvale Station."
If you are a Patrick fan, all of this is NO surprise. Born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina and raised in Michigan - now based in San Diego - our Friend learned MANY different kinds of music as he grew in his mastery of the guitar. Jazz, Blues, Rock and Soul, the sound of Country back porches and the buzz of City nightlife - he feels ALL of it. Possibly like no other that you've heard. You're not the subject of a PBS special for no reason!
More than a dozen musical projects under his belt, Patrick Yandall is rolling ON - and he is going to SHINE at his gig this weekend. It is said that if you play at Spaghettini in Seal Beach, California, you are hipper than the average bear :) Patrick will be spending his Birthday WEEKEND there! That's why we have to do this next episode of "Hybrid Jazz" properly. The send-off is everything, don't you think? Hah!
Let's enjoy some delicious music from one of the nicest and most talent guitarists/producers/composers that we know - and let's all get inspired by the music that we'll hear BECAUSE we're inspired by PATRICK! Happy Birthday, Superstar!

When Alex Snydman first visited "Hybrid Jazz", he was ecstatic about the response that "Fortunate Action" was receiving. And he had every reason to be excited! Even those who don't praise easily were disarmed. Here's this gifted guitarist-turned-drummer who felt the music to his core. Beautifully written songs and a kind of synergy on the album that is only achieved after MANY albums, usually. Critics are still falling in love - and it has been a while since the project dropped. Last year :)
Alex is returned to the show so that we can pump up some very cool East Coast stops. He had spent incredible years in Massachusetts - and played in New York - but he's based in the Los Angeles area now. In order to complete his studies. For him to "come home" is a big deal! For you to see him? Even bigger. What he offers in the way of warmth and artistry in his performances is something that you don't want to miss.
"Fortunate Action", by the way, has meaning. Paraphrasing Alex, the use of the words represent thepositive ripples that multiply when we listen to our inner voice. He'll be happy to explain that more! As his friend and mentor, Eric Harland, says: "Alex embodies the spirit that we call love." And love cannot be anything but positive. Hey, it's gonna be THAT kind of show! Hah! We truly had a great time when we first met - WHILE we were speaking during "Hybrid Jazz" - and we both expect that good vibe to deja vu you this time as well.
You'll hear tracks from the CD, to be sure. One of the beautiful asides of this project is knowing that Alex, besides composing himself, graciously gave all three of his pianists space for their songs, too. You'll FEEL the gratitude!
Please join us on 7/29 - you are promised rejuvenation!
Meditation has finally come out of the New Age closet, with science backing up the health benefits of regular meditation and even the U.S. military using meditation to help soldiers dealing with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).
My friend Beverly will join the conversation to share her experiences with Vipassana as well as Transcendental Meditation practices.
So what do you do when you meditate? Do you listen to music? Do you do guided meditations? Is your meditation based in a spiritual practice or Tantra or Kundalini practice?
Trish Causey will discuss all this, plus how can meditation help your sex life? CALL IN and talk about it: (646) 787-8587
