Scott Yanow (Bio):
.....Jazz Journalist and historian. Since then, I have been involved in many projects. Being the Senior Editor for the 3rd edition of the All Music Guide For Jazz resulted in a countless number of my CD reviews and biographies being utilized throughout the internet including Pandora Radio.

Lee Ritenour made quite a splash four years ago with his A Twist of Jobim CD, in which he pulled together a rotating cast of all-stars to offer a program of contemporary jazz updates of classics from the Antonio Carlos Jobim songbook. He’s used the same formula for his latest offering, A Twist of Marley.

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!

For residents of Birmingham and surrounding areas, the Renaissance at Ross Bridge is the perfect getaway that’s not far away…making Eric’s Jazz Escape the ultimate “stay-cation”!
It's such a privilege to have the friendship of Norman Woods - who is also known by his Jazz Poet moniker. He has changed it a few times but this current name will stick (I'm convinced!) N-Side The Healer seems right. Especially when you get to know Norman :) From the San Francisco Bay area, he is also a screenwriter and a music publisher. And has had epiphanies in his life that beg to be shared. Like homelessness. And true psychological challenges. In his poetry, N-Side shares those struggles as well as his triumphs. He asks questions - and sometimes he answers them himself. But he wants US to think. Way beneath the surface. Norman's not much for "surface." When you've been on the street, you get to see people at their best and worst. He has never forgot that lesson or any other that he has learned. Hear it for yourself via "Living in the Poetry Hotel" - we'll hear three tracks from this latest project by our beloved friend.
Kim Waters joins us on 8/20! This immensely popular saxophonist is celebrating 25 years of giving us joy - that instrument has produced four # 1 albums and more than a dozen # 1 singles. Kim is from Maryland and folks in the state can tell you - he's a "Hometown Hero!" And it's terrific to know that he returning to this region for a special date at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. Here's the reason why: Kim has a new CD on the way! Called "Silver Soul", it's full of original music - our "hero" wrote ten of the twelve tracks :) Sharing the immensely warm vibe on the album: Kim's talented wife, Dana Pope, as well as Eric Roberson and the teen actress/singer, Zendaya. We'll hear classic tracks from Kim and get the lowdown on his new & exciting life! C U in The Chat Room!
