Vancouver, BC – Fundamental to the coaching relationship is creating a non-judgmental, safe space that allows our skills and talents to come forth. When our inner resources become accessible to us, new perspectives become available and new options present themselves allowing for better decisions and choices.
Ed Karsai is a Business and Personal Coach that specializes in helping his clients better themselves to better their business. He coaches business owners, managers, leaders, executives, entrepreneurs and employees.
“What I want to do is really connect with that individual and understand what they want,” says Karsai about when a potential client initially makes contact. “The more ready and willing and open the individual, the further we can go.”
Every individual has their own struggles and challenges, but many people carry an inner resilience, creativity and capacity to move forward through life’s challenges. There may be problems around us, but we each have the ability to work through them.
“As a coach, I am here as a facilitator to help you discover for yourself your next step and where you want to go,” says Karsai. Fundamentally, there is a belief in the client and that they have the ability to deal with their situation. “Starting with that assumption changes the tone of the conversation.”
Karsai says he’s looking for people who want to make a change and are motivated enough to take action. Together, he and his clients work to identify what’s holding them back while developing the necessary steps to achieve their goals.
"I’m looking for people who are fully committed to engage and do what needs to be done to move forward," says Karsai. “I love when people have a shift in perception and things start working for them. They’re able to move forward and begin to realize their goals and dreams.”
It’s one thing for a world class musician to write a book with a great title like “How To Make
Your Guitar Talk,” but Nils has gone further--living, embracing and even transcending those
words he once penned since becoming an instrumental sensation in 2005 with “Pacific Coast
The Munich born, Los Angeles

track in the smooth jazz format over the past ten years with nearly 30,000 spins. The song was a
true phenomenon in its initial release, staying at #1 on the Radio & Records airplay chart for
more than 10 weeks on its way to being named the most played song in the U.S. and Canada for
the year since then the most played song of the decade .
Now Nils is back with a new release, Jazz Gems..Best of Nils, which will take us down memory lane and remind us as to why we love him and his extraordinary music.
He contributed as a musician and co-writer of “Keep Rollin’” on Benson’s 1998 album Standing
Together, and the guitar and vocal legend returned the favor by playing a duet with Nils on Nils’
1998 debut CD Blue Planet. He has also become a core part of many fans’ summer and fall

Hailing from the "birth place of jazz",Vandell Andrew's destiny was not too hard to find. Vandell started studying music at the age of 13 at a local jazz summer camp in the treme area of New Orleans. It was then that he learned to play the trumpet. After a whole summer of playing the trumpet, Vandell was approached by one of his teachers that his embouchure would be better suited playing the saxophone.
Being that this teacher was the COOLEST sax player in the world, Vandell took this ultimatum as a compliment that his teacher would be even considering teaching him. Soon after learning to play the alto saxophone, Vandell joined the infamous St.Augustine "Marching 100" band. Playing in events and parades all over the world, convinced Vandell that this was what he wanted to do for a living after high school. Following high school, Vandell enrolled in music classes at Southern University at New Orleans, and studied with the legendary Edward "Kidd" Jordan. Shortly after about a month of studying with Kidd, the horrible hurricane Katrina took the city of New Orleans by storm. Vandell found himself relocating to Dallas,Tx. This experience was extremely hard to cope with at first , but Vandell began to like living in Dallas a little more, after checking out the music scene around town. Vandell began writing and working on his own solo compositions. This has led to him sharing stages with many local acts,at many different venues .As well as nationally known acts like Kirk Whalum, and Tom Braxton. This is only the beginning for this young entrepreneur, he is soon to record his debut album in the very near future.
A Southern Californian to the core, slow burning intensity has been Richard Elliot’s stock-in-trade since debuting as a member of the novel Chapman Stick-based quartet Kittyhawk in 1979 at the age of 19. With influences ranging from Grover Washington, Jr. to John Klemmer, his broad range of saxual expression knows no bounds. He has topped charts and toured the world as a leader as well as with innovative groups such as Guitars & Saxes and Tower of Power.
Jazz/Pop artist Pete Belasco began playing piano at a young age, later turning his concentration to saxophone. Both of his parents played piano as well. In high school, Belasco played in rock bands, but he soon became primarily interested in jazz and studied sax at Rutgers University and the Hartt Conservatory. He was also preparing a demo at the time, but was involved in a severe boating accident that broke both of his hands. For several months, he was unable to play, but in the interim he turned to composing and singing. In retrospect, Belasco has referred to the accident as a watershed experience because it forced him to develop his songwriting and singing skills. Belasco’s demo made its way to Verve Records, and A&R Executive, Guy Eckstine, who signed him. Upon healing, Belasco moved to New York to record his debut, Get It Together, which was released on Verve Forecast in the fall of 1997. The album was a concoction of influences such as, Marvin Gaye, the Beatles, and Curtis Mayfield, along with jazzy pop and lounge music cool. As Pete Belasco created the songs that would become his second album, Deeper, he kept returning to a common theme-intimacy. The grooves were sensual, relaxed, erotic. The lyrics were passionate, tender, generous. In a time of confusion and strife, Belasco wanted to sing about love, about faith, and about supporting one another. In a feature article in The Village Voice, music journalist James Hunter rhapsodizes about Belascos second effort
On today's show I will be chatting with Kenwood Anderson and shaaring with you his latest project appropiately titled Handful of Grooves, which is a 5-song EP of smooth jazz that won’t put you to sleep. Bursting with memorable melodies, percolating grooves, and tasteful improvisation.
Kenwood is a seasoned drummer with plenty of stage and studio experience, most notably with the bands RioSoul and The Reall Deall Band. Now he is stepping out on his own with his original music. His keyboard skills and songwriting talent are brought to the forefront. The music suggests the influences of Jeff Lorber, George Benson, and Stevie Wonder, but Kenwood has a style is all his own. The music is available now at www.kenwoodsmusic.com also available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby
