    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Pianist/Composer/Producer Amina Figarova

    in Music

    Amina Figarova was born in Baku, Azerbaijan.  Piano lessons came early - and she trained to become a classical concert performer.  In the late 80's, she became immersed in Jazz studies at the Rotterdam Conservatory.  Coming to the States in 1989, she completed her education at Berklee.  It was there that she met Bart Platteau, a flutist from Belgium.  

    Together, Amina and Bart were invited - in 1998 - to join the Monk Institute Summer Jazz Colony in Aspen.  And there have been countless shows - everywhere - since then.  And a baker's dozen of albums!  "Blue Whisper"  is her current project, full of personal reflection and haunting melodies.  With Amina on this gorgeous ride, is her touring sextet - and a bevy of prestigious guests.  Including past "Hybrid Jazz" visitor Wayne Escoffery.  And a man whose name you've heard quite a bit on the show, bassist Luques Curtis.  

    We'll certainly heard tracks from this incredible CD - and talk to Amina about the road that took her to such articulate expression of her musical heart.  We'll also hear offerings from November Babies - this month is full of strong Jazz voices and instrumentalists.  We might even thrown in some December children - Amina is one of those :)  

    Join us at NOON Eastern time on Tuesday, 11/3/2015.  Our fascinating guest joins us in the second hour.  We hope to see you in our Chat Room!
