    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!

    The Don S. McClure Show Live - Building The New Empire in your life.

    The Don S. McClure Show Live - Building The New Empire

    The making of your own Empire and what does that mean in your life.

    Building your own Empire over your life can be the best accomplishment anyone can have over their own destiny.               Usually the word is connected to control of others. But that does not have to be the way you use the word. 

    It can be connected to a powerful and important enterprise that you build through hard work or the investing or holding of a large scope   that is controlled by one single person, family or a group of associates who think along he same lines of unity and direction. 

    It is most often thought of in the since, usually connected to a territory of greater extent than a Kingdom, examples such as the Byzantine Empire, or Roman Empire, or the former British Empire, French Empire or Russian and Spanish Empire. But when the word is used wisely you will find that it will fit inside your life as you build your family Empire, or your business Empire. That will serve and benefit others. Hopefully for years to come.
