Oh, yes, I HEAR you! "What? Where has she BEEN?!" Hah! We all missed her, didn't we? We'll get those Where's Waldo answers tomorrow - when Joyce Cooling visits us at three p.m. Eastern time! Remember that - for Tuesday, 11/18 - the show STARTS at TWO. We'll have three two-hour shows this week!
Back to our sublime guest: Joyce has been making beautiful music with her guitar for QUITE a while now. Self-taught, her influences and inspirations range from Brazilian to Classical to Rock - and it all pours forth into a pulsating, dynamic and driving deliciousness that is profoundly JAZZ!
#1 radio singles, six Top Ten, multiple music awards - and nominated for several others. "Global Cooling" was her seventh studio album and that was released in 2009.
Well, it HAS been quite an absence on the scene...and the reason for this visit from Joyce (a reunion!) is specific: she has a new HOLIDAY single! Produced by longtime producer, Jay Wagner, "The Holiday's On" is meant to convey a 1940's Swing era vibe with a spin that's infectious :) We'll hear it - and more tracks that are meaningful - and we'll talk to Joyce about a favorite subject: mental health. This fascinating artist has worked with some of the best in the business (Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Al Jarreau!) and has made friends all over the world. But the urgency of her life's path has much to do with the focus on keeping us emotionally afloat. That's why Joyce is a national advocate for NAMI: the National Alliance for Mental Health. As we near Thanksgiving and get into gear for the season, nothing is more important that focusing attention on how we're coping. How we can help ourselves and help others live better lives. Please join us for a SPECIAL "Hybrid Jazz!" 11/18/2014.
Born in Barcelona, our guest on 11/19/2014 has made QUITE a splash in his adopted country. Besides the fact that he just voted for the first time - as an American citizen :) Oscar Penas (I can't wait to say his last name: PEA Nyas!) is a gifted guitarist, composer and bandleader with a new CD that is, indeed, bragworthy. "Music of Departures and Returns" is full of inspirations that captivate Oscar - who has discussed the reasons why he was so drawn to Jazz after his childhood studies in Classical Music. He relished the idea of creating melodies and interacting with other musicians. Pat Metheny and Wayne Shorter were sparks that goaded him early on. Then, the music of Pixinguinha - the flamenco music of Spain that was so infused inside of him - all the ingredients that would define the intoxicating stew of Oscar's music - were taking shape. This is a gentleman who has won the "ASCAP Plus Award" - so SOMETHING's working :)
Oscar is visiting us for two reasons. One, he's performing at the prestigious Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland, in the next few days. We certainly wanted to call attention to that. Secondly, this new album, Oscar's fourth, is full of music that enriches the soul. Esperanza Spalding and Paquito D'Rivera are featured - as is producer, arranger and pianist, Gil Goldstein. He also focuses on quartet: six-string electric bassist Moto Fukushima, drummer Richie Barshay, and the world-class violinist, Sara Caswell.
Besides being an alluring guitarist - both intelligent and earthy - Oscar is a wise man. He knew that, after his education at Berklee and the New England Conservatory, he would have to stand out in the sea of sublime artistry that populates New York City. So, he dug deeply, honoring his roots and his passion for Jazz. The results will make your ears thank you :)
Yes, you are correct - you have seldom seen the word "Favorite" in the title of the show :) The most versatile Renaissance Man that we're featuring is the reason. Besides being so staggeringly talented, Slim is also a friend. And it's ALWAYS a pleasure to welcome him back!
Baltimore born and bred, Slim (aka Tim Camponeschi) became smitten with music at the age of five. That's when Dad took him to see "The Five Pennies" with Danny Kaye and Louis Armstrong. So strong was the inspiration that Slim took trumpet lessons for ten years. And he taught himself both guitar and piano. Singing all the while. Oh, thank God for THAT! If you know our Hunk's voice, then you have heard Audible Silk. Dean Martin without the dry martini :-D
Seriously, this profile could wax poetic from now until showtime - that's how cool of a background we're discussing. From the first gig, singing Beatles' songs at the six grade graduation - to his middle school band, Momma Max - to his education at the Peabody Institute - to the Motown office of Roxanne Gordy in New York City where he signed his published deal (and a song on Angie Bofill's debut CD!). There's more: Stiff Records (yes) signed him and "Boot Camp" had two of the 100 videos first seen on MTV. A re-recording of songs originally done by another artist put Slim Man on the map - so did Bona Fide, the group he founded in the late 90's. "X-Ray Hip" was a number one song that still get played all over the globe. And Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn will never forget Our Guy - Slim was the one who discovered him via the nationwide Marlboro search.
TV, screenplays, authentic Italian cooking - whaddya want?! A new Kickstarter will launch his cookbook (days left!) and a BIG charitable event happens SOON - please welcome our Friend, Slim Man!
It has been several years since Tom Lagana and I have had the chance to talk. Let's just say that he's a BUSY man. Here's why: Tom's a Jazz guitarist - but also well known for his master classes in Classical. And he has performed with orchestras: he has played with the NSO, alongside Eric Idle of Monty Python. And was with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra when John Waters celebrated his 30th anniversary of "Hair Spray." He's also a composer and bandleader and he takes his teaching abilities very seriously. Towson State University (where he received his Masters of Music) and the University of Maryland are two wonderful institutions that are grateful to him.
So you see that it has been a TAD tricky to rope Tom into another interview! The last time was when we were face-to-face in a radio station's studio. And we were focusing on Tom's last CD - which is why we're catching up NOW - because he has a new one! "Vol. 1" is what this beautiful collecton is called, featuring the group with George Garzone. With Bossa, Jazz favorites and originals. Exceptional music by a seasoned and passionate artist who was mentored by the legendary Charlie Byrd. So close a relationship was theirs that Charlie hand-picked Tom to play at his favorite watering hole (also legendary), The King of France Tavern. That's where Tom & his Trio became fixtures.
There has been much that Tom has seen in his wonderfully satisfying career - early success came in the Walt Disney Jazz Band in Orlando, Florida. He also won the Sidney Lieberman Competition, an award that is usually given to pianists. Tom was the first guitarist to be honored. "Just Jazz Guitar" featured his analysis of Pat Metheny's work, which thrilled Pat. Learn more about Tom at www.tomlagana.net
Ooooh, this is gonna be a "Red Cups UP" interview! Hah! That's one of the tunes on Joey Sommerville's new CD, "Overnight Sensation" (oh, the irony THERE!). The song was lauded by "USA Today" columnist, Elysa Gardner. She just mentioned it the other day when she discussed new music that caught her ear. Bette Midler and Darlene Love and Joey - he was in the right company, wasn't he? Thanks, Elysa!
This will be the third go-round with Joey as guest. The first time was back in "Cool Jazz Conversations" days with Joy Hall. Then, he visited "Hybrid Jazz" with more exciting news two years ago. NOW? Honey, this a whole 'nother chapter in the Saga of Sommerville! The new project is SMOKING hot! In terms of artistry and variety. Joey has enlisted his friends to play with him: Earl Klugh, Elan Trotman, Eric Essix and Jeff Bradshaw. And he has stretched his wings and flown to beautiful new directions. He echoes the past so well while breathing life into it. Joey is adamant that you know he plays ALL kinds of music on that trumpet, but he truly has an affinity for the life of what Jazz is. Matter-of-fact, Joey is an "All That Jazz" award-winner. Let him tell you about that :)
Raised in the Baptist Church, Joey knew that if the congregation responded favorably to his trumpet, then his "soul communication" was on target :) Liiving in Atlanta now (from Detroit), Joey has played with everyone from Phish to Cirque de Soleil to the many stars who landed in 'Lanta for his Jazz After Dark Series. He's no stranger to touring or recording - he has honed his craft for YEARS - and to say that you're going to enjoy every note of what you'll hear on the new CD is an understatement! Join us in The Chat Room on 11/11!
Please join me this week as I welcome Trish Broersma to Voices of the Earth. We will focus on her wonderful program, Riding Beyond, a program which opens doors to the future for women recovering from breast cancer treatment through guided experiences with horses. And we will hear about her lively partnership with Mystic, the wonderful mare who is the heart of this work.
In addition to Riding Beyond, Trish developed an innovative program in human development, published in 2007 by New World Library in Riding into Your Mythic Life: Transformational Adventures with the Horse. She is a certified PATH Therapeutic Riding Instructor and founded and operated two Premier Accredited PATH Centers in San Antonio, TX and Ashland, OR over a period of 12 years. She is a certified equine specialist and faculty member for the PATH Equine Specialist Certification Program. She is Past President of the Equine Facilitated Mental Health Association and has presented at national and international conferences. Articles were published in Practical Horseman, Dressage Today, Strides, and other publications. She holds a masters degree from the University of Michigan in English Language and Literature, was a licensed massage therapist for 10 years, on the staff of the Institute of Cultural Affairs for 10 years working in international community development, and has done post graduate study for 25 years with Jean Houston and The Foundation for Mind Research and Peggy Rubin at the Center for Sacred Theatre.
From personal experience, Trish became aware of the very real costs to companies that fail the ‘effective communication’ test. Working with her partner, Trish developed real practical systems for improving communication in any organisation and with Trischel has trained executives, middle managers and career minded individuals not just in public speaking, but in the much more important Art of Communication, especially to support Leadership.
The pride of Toronto is about to visit us - and so many couldn't be happier! Rob Tardik is an extraordinary guitarist - award-winning - and is in love with the idea of a global vision regarding Jazz. He's also a profoundly respected teacher, both privately and at the prestigious Merriam School of Music. As well, Rob is an inventor - of "The Music Stamp Series." These are teaching accessories for both musicians and instructors. A fascinating man - and we haven't even touched on his composition skills!
Rob had been involved in music for over two decades. Well-versed in both recording engineering and media arts, he has turned out acclaimed projects that feature his joyful and passionate music. There have been multiple singles on "Billboard's" Top 10. We've been thrilling to his latest CD, "Limitless", since last year. Before that, "Without Words" (2006) and "The Right Time" (2009). And we're never going to forget "Balance/Energy/Laughter/Love (B.E.L.L.)" because it sums up Rob's philosphy. Which is "Let's all keep ringing this BELL loud and clear!"
The reason for Rob's visit on 10/28 is to celebrate the release of his new single from "Limitless" called "RobBop." It's a cool breeze of a song, featuring the steaming sax of Walle Larsson - and we'll hear it. As well as an astounding array of tunes that are specially chosen for this show :)
We hope to see you in The Chat Room on the last Tuesday in October! Time is flying by this year - and we're in the throes of Autumn in many places on the planet. How wonderful to feel Harvest Time - with it's rich colors, fresh wind, and the promise of a comfortable blanket to ward off the chill. Hey - that sounds like Rob Tardik music! Hah! Join us on 10/28.
Really good memories have been made in Baltimore - and you're about to HEAR one of them on 10/23/2014 :) Lionel Lyles has been firmly entrenched in the Charm City music scene for YEARS - even when he was attending North Carolina Central University.
He formed his Quintet back in Morgan State University days - in 2000. The worked that he turned out with his band has been noted in our region and beyond. When "The Nightlife: The September Sessions" arrived on the scene, we were all convinced in town that Lionel was on his way. But, he was intent on education. He wanted no false steps in a journey that he considers both a musical one - and a spiritual one.
His NEW CD "At the Precipice", will re-awaken those Jazz juices in you. Lionel has a way of conveying "the masters" that he reveres in a refreshing way. He's young and hip to the current music scene, but his preference - fortunately for us - is Jazz. Oh, YES, that's what you'll hear on the next "Hybrid Jazz!"
Matter-of-fact, you'll get a sneak preview of Lionel's new work - he's sharing it with us! And what we have in the mix to coincide with our friends's visit: artists from both Baltimore AND Florida. Where the memories have been wonderful - and where the memories WILL BE so! You'll find something that you like - that's a promise.
Join us in The Chat Room at one p.m. Eastern time on 10/23. Lionel drops by in the third hour of the show. It's an exciting time for a good friend - let's celebrate!
