Y aknow that voice you cannot stop listening to? The one that just makes you sigh and shiver at the same time? That voice? That voice is Kevin Sandbllom...What? You did not know I adore him? Now you do...Join us Sunday as I sit a spell and get nosey with the wonderful wonderful Kevin Sandbloom....
Kevin Sandbloom is a man who knows a little bit about rebirth and new beginnings. Throughout his career, he has continually reinvented himself. First he was a member of cover bands and then he did an extended stint with the popular Southern California band The Congregation. But, perhaps his most intriguing transformation has been as a traveling solo artist who wows crowds from Boston to St. Louis to his native Los Angeles.
Seven full-length albums and an EP under his belt, he is currently touring and promoting his latest recording, STILL BLUE [Sandbloom sings Joni], a complete cover of Joni Mitchell’s Blue. He has performed on stages as diverse as Poetry N Motion in London, England to Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York to Berklee College of Music in Boston to B.B. King's Blues Club in Los Angeles and is a fixture at music and poetry venues across the U.S. He brings a fresh sound to an industry weaned on Auto-tune without being retro or dated.
Regarded as a songwriter at the top of his game, he wrote the title track for Grammy-nominated guitar legend Robben Ford’s Supernatural album. He has also contributed music to many independent films including Laurence Fishburne’s directorial debut, Once in the Life and he had a featured appearance on the ABC Family series “Lincoln Heights.
Bonnie and Ja'Vonne of The Traveling Eye are no strangers to being behind bars. They have visited many of the famous ones around the World. Why do we have a fascination with prisons? We will explore some infamous prisons that are now museums or hotels and expose their history, some little known facts and some of the atrocities that occurred during their operation. From Alcatraz to Goree Island they look at the history of the locations, how and why they are major attractions. Tune in and explore with us !
Ed eats his bowl of crow after swearing up and down that LeBron would not sign with Cleveland. Well, he signed with Cleveland as Fuz predicted. The guys discuss all the changes in the NBA - from Chandler Parson's leaving for Dallas to Chris Bosh & Carmelo Anthony staying with their respective team. The guys will also take one last look at the World Cup, as Ed lawyer's up for Leo Messi and the the attacks against his sense of sportsmanship, while Fuz still mourns the Dutch choking again and Arjen Robben's penchant for flopping. Lastly, the guys tee-off on the MLB All-Star game and Monday's lackluster Home Run Derby.
Immediately, there's a connection: Keith Andrew spent his childhood in Baltimore (small world!) - then moved to the San Francisco Bay area when he was a teen. He had been playing guitar since he was ten - and the rich diversity of music in Northern California fueled him further. Led to Los Angeles, he studied some of the most prestigious guitarists on the planet: Robben Ford, Joe Pass and more.
Keith made sure that he received an education that was suited for the future he was seeking. He was part of the Chaffey College Jazz Ensemble - and excelled so much that he won awards from The National Association of Jazz Educators. He did exceptionally well at the Guitar Institute of Technology, too. And became a staff instructor there. The best of paths followed our guest because he became associated with a very successful L.A. based group called Himilaya. The band got serious buzz and received national airplay - and also had a chance to tour.
Fast forward to 2014 and Keith Andrew has "Adventurous Soul" up and running - with 13 tracks and a who's who of Contemporary Jazz. The COOL piece of this Hybrid puzzle is that Keith has made some terrific choices, regarding who's around him, what he composes, and how he views his music. He found in fellow guitarist, Nils, a kindred spirit. Nils produced six of the songs on "Soul" - and these two exceptional artists found that their FEEL encompassed a fusion that included a vision of World music. Keith developed a passion for expanding his vision when he spent time with the California based group, Zulu Spear. He's an interesting guy, as well as the consummate guitarist. He loves the outdoors and is not a lightweight about it - Keith has been to countries to hike that have only been a part of many of our dreams :) Please join us in welcoming Keith Andrew on 12/4/2014!

With the passing of Charlie Haden, many of us are focused on those in the music business whose instrument is the bass. We can all probably name five off the top of our heads who really get our juices flowing - or those with whom we feel an indescribable connection. JUST because of the way they play.
Enter Jimmy Haslip! One of the Masters of the Art of Bass, Jimmy was born in the Bronx. And Spanish was his first language. He learned to speak English later. But the way that he makes his bass speak? There is ONE language - and that's universal :) But let's give you a rewind as to how he got to that level...
Jimmy's family moved to Huntingdon, New York, when he was four. Hearing all kinds of music in the house, he was drawn to the sound of multiple instruments - and he was playing drums, trumpet and tuba early on. But the bass captured his interest. And, at 13, he got one - but here's the kicker: since he was left-handed and since a bass for right-handers was available, Jimmy learned to play it upside down!
1969: Our guest left NY to make his musical path in San Fran, New Orleans, Denver and Dallas. He finally moved to L.A. in 1975 - there he got together with Russell Ferrante and Robben Ford - and they formed the nucleus of players who created "The Inside Story" - Robben's first album.
The strength of that buzz paved the way for the formation of The Yellowjackets in 1980 - Jimmy was a founding member. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out that his way from THERE was gold. In case you might not know - he has had some 21 Grammy nominations - and worked with artists in diverse genres. You can ask Jeff Lorber how he could get along without Jimmy Haslip - the success of "Hacienda" says a LOT!
We'll share music and talk gigs - hang with us on 7/15!
