Kim has that unusual balance of being intuitive and practical. Her professional background in the Civil Engineering field followed her mother’s footsteps. Her physicist father’s influence kept her grounded. The progression of her intuitive and spiritual career has grown over the years.
Spiritual and intuitive influences run on both sides of her family. Notably her grandmother’s near death and many other spiritual experiences formed the basis of Kim’s life long interest in the spiritual and paranormal. Her advice and encouragement helped Kim to appreciate, understand and develop her own gifts of seeing auras and spirits, feeling and interpreting energy.

Saxophonist Elan Trotman, has quickly become one of contemporary jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers, and continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, and recording artist. So much so that he's becoming the go-to sax-man for smooth jazz artists like Peter White, Paul Brown, Keiko Matsui, Brian Simpson, Rick Braun, and a guest spot on the Dave Koz 2012 Cruise to Europe.
Trotman’s playing, though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr. and Kirk Whalum, among others, displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. So much so that he's a 3-time winner of the New England Urban Music Award for Best Jazz Male, 2-time nominee for a Boston Music Award, and winner for Instrumentalist of the Year (Barbados) in 2011. Born and raised in Barbados, the native island of pop star Rihanna, and educated at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Trotman approaches jazz in his own way. Blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises. “I like to stretch out, take chances on my solos and on my records.” Inspiring and eminently listenable, Trotman’s music is never predictable.

It's so fabulous to tell you how AWESOME our friend, David. P. Stevens, is doing. Since his last visit on the show, he has played the Iridium in New York, on the Cap Jazz Cruise, toured Europe and completed a new album! Oh - and his website is now updated to reflect the ever-evolving direction of "Mr. Guitar" :-D
This amazing guitarist/vocalist/composer/producer is determined to keep taking us on journeys with his music. David is not content to let anything BE. He wants to stretch the canvas, find new paint, and then draw outside the lines - are you feeling me? Jazz and Soul and Funk and Romance and music that's older than him combined with the young that he IS - it's all in that juicy Hybrid that is his and his alone.
You may have known David when he recorded "Timeless" or "The Shedd" or his last CD called "Epiphany." THAT was a star-studded project (Geralds Albright, Veasley, Carol Riddick, Frank McComb, Elan Trotman!) And "Mr. Guitar" is blessed with names as well, including a fellow Philadelphian, Gail Jhonson!
Let's celebrate the new layer of success that this bright and refreshing talent is just about to experience - "Mr. Guitar" will drop on 8/5/2014. We'll hear tracks from it and talk to David about how it came together - as well as the upcoming gigs where you can see his artistry POP!
We might just have another guest on Tuesday's show - "The Soulful Nerd", Kenny Wesley! Kenny has had some truly astounding success in the Washington, D.C. area and beyond. He's got a hot song on the charts with our friend, Mycah Chevalier, and he will also be in the house this Saturday - at the Christian de Mesones celebration at K2! Funny how our guests keep tying together, huh? That's the beauty of HYBRID :)
