HOST BIG RAY
Since our beautiful and multiply talented guest was with us last time, MUCH has happened - all good! Ragan told us that she had a new project coming - and here it is! Released on July 8th, it's already being pushed to the top - Ragan has SO many fans who have waited for this :) And there's MORE news to share: just a month or so ago, Ragan won a prestigious award from "Black Women in Jazz & Fine Arts" - prod her to tell us about that - it won't take much, believe it. She is very proud of this - and understandably so!
If you aren't familiar with the background of this flutist/vocalist/composer/arranger, prepare to be impressed. Ragan was playing multiple instruments at the age of FIVE! But the piano, drums and violin didn't compare to the love she had for the flute. Classical studies were a natural transition for her - just as natural - immersing herself after her education (Cleveland Institute of Music, Harid Conservatory) in New York. But NOT classically ;) Ragan dove into Jazz, Funk and R & B - and did it ALL with flair!
She won the Capital Jazz Fest's coveted "New Artist Competition" - and released her debut album thereafter. With "Class Axe" in 2007 - then "Evolve" in 2012 - you can hear just that: EVOLUTON! Trusted and acclaimed producers and arrangers, Dennis Johnson and Bob Baldwin, assisted in conveying the "Raganometry" that's a trademark of everything she does. Like the Pillsbury Dough Boy, Ragan Whiteside is Poppin' Fresh, 24/7! One listen to the new "Quantum Drive" and you'll hear another LEVEL of that! Check out who was happy to come onboard for this endeavor: Bob Baldwin, of course - he was an EARLY believer in Ragan. Plus, Althea Rene, Frank McComb and Patrice Rushen!
Back with his first contemporary jazz foray in five years, trumpeter Rick Braun appears to be wasting no time in his quest to add more No. 1 hits to his burgeoning catalogue of chart-toppers.
Braun produced and wrote or co-wrote nine songs on the new session that revisits the spirit of his twenty-year-old breakthrough collection, “Beat Street,” reflects his past playing in War and conjures the mighty Tower of Power.
