    Hybrid Jazz - with Levon Mikaelian and Bernie Capodici!

    in Music

    Two exceptional artists are on the 2/16 show.  We're starting earlier so that we can accommodate Levon Mikaelian, the founder of United Shades of Artistry.  With an album of the same name.  My gracious, did Levon and his ensemble receive major accolades in 2015!  This is long overdue, to have him on the show.  But maybe the music of Levon & company need time to marinate.  Our ears needed to be ready.  Beautiful performances from Gary Thomas and Randy Brecker here.  With the sound of Levon's native Armenia meshing with the beauty of Jazz and Classical.  Instrumental poetry.  And there's a big story attached to this album.  Levon had truly hard times in his former home.  To grasp the healing of his music despite those challenges is so worthy of discussion.  We're catching Levon during some time away from his job at the Maryland Youth Ballet - so we'll relish every minute!


    Bernie Capodici is one of those cats that you feel as if you've known forever.  The force behind a group that's getting some major attention, Bernie is a Philadelphia native who has a beautiful musical history.  We'll hear about the influence of his Dad, his education at the University of Utah (studying percussion), and his journey to the West Indies to absorb the culture there.  And the music!  When he returned to Philly, he was intent on theory and piano.  He was mentored and encouraged. Bernie has assembled four bands during his career - and Drivetime (with a catchy intention: Urban Organic Jazz) - is his most recent and on FIRE!  You'll hear Bob Baldwin and Andrew Neu on two of the tunes.  And you'll hear about an exciting CD release party for "California Dreamin' " - set to take place on 2/20!  


    Two different worlds with powerful music to share.  Join us on 2/16!
