DAZZLING, INVENTIVE, AND SUPER MELODIC TRUMPETER!
Offering up a fresh and exhilarating vibe with his full length debut Nothing Between Us,
the trumpet sound on this smooth jazz album is playful and dancy, sometimes reflective & intimate, but often peaceful and becomes a unique expression of the musician, rounding it off with a unique hip hop smooth jazz tune.
Trumpeter and composer Sam Hankins draws on a powerhouse resume as a music educator and R&B/jazz sideman that includes multiple awards as a middle school bandleader and performances with numerous legendary artists, including Al Jarreau, Clark Terry, The O’Jays, The Temptations, The Dells, The Impressions, Aretha Franklin and the Glenn Miller Big Band.

Director Herbert Midgley created "The Rise of the Robots. Also known on YouTube as The Internet Legend, Midgley presents a motley crew of four unlikely members who fight to save the world from the rise of the robots. The takeover is possible through humankind's obsession with technology. Now only four misfits can fix the problem -- a stoner, redneck, "hottie" and intellectial. Can they stop the robots from taking over and avoid the Mayan prophecy? Or is there another part of the prophecy that might hint at what can save them all?
This is not Midgley's first film. He also directed and can be seen in "Beep" and has worked on other productions. In addition to being crew, he also is a composer and did music for "The History of Time Travel" (whose director, Ricky Kennedy, was featured on I.S. and was the A.D. on this project.) Perhaps Midgley is best known for his over 3000 videos on YouTube!
"The Rise of the Robots" was shown at the Super Geek Film Festival as part of Florida Supercon (July 3-6, 2014).

How fabulous to have my friend, Bass Master/Composer/Teacher/Clinician/Mentor Christian de Mesones return to "Hybrid Jazz!" In previous visits, Christian and yours truly would discuss upcoming scenarios for Groove Skool, a group that has earned wide respect for several years. But our guest has NEVER been the kind of artist to let the grass grow under his Big New Yawk feet ;) He has plans for shows and projects - and thoughts to share!
This charismatic individual has been playing bass for over 30 years. At 18, he graduated from what is now known as The Musician's Institute in Hollywood, California. There, he had the opportunity to study with Abe Laboriel, Steve Morse, Pat Metheny, and Ray Brown - among others! By request from a famous faculty member (a guest of the school), Christian performed an original for graduation. And made Pat Martino extremely happy!
Thereafter, Christian served as superlative bass man for a number of groups - in Hawaii, Virginia and New York (of course!) In the mid-80's, he was a key member of "Twice Shy" - out of The Big Apple. Heavy Metal. Oh, yes, this man is known to be HYBRID, Baby! Multiple genres. A move to the South put him in the spotlight with Hip Hop and R & B acts - and he was the bassist for the popular "Big Patt and Legion" in Richmond - they were known for drawing exceptionally large crowds.
When Christian made the move to Northern Virginia, things came to a delightful musical boil: he was teaching, getting involved with students (ask him about his "Bass Symphony!") and creating the vibe for Groove Skool. Now, a BIG show for Big New York looms - the reason for his visit - and we hear that there's another recording in the future! Let's put it to you this way: his visits are never boring. LOL! Join us on 7/24 - in The Chat Room!
