Nikki English, Keith Robertson and Matt Williams have been together since 2000 as the country band, Western Avenue. The band was nominated in 2013 for the Ontario Country Music Association and twice-nominated International Music and Entertainment Association Award. Western Avenue is a “hot country” sound, demonstrated by their catchy first single, “Highway Headin’ Out of Town,” picked up by Canadian country radio in 2012. With the release of their new single, “Wherever You Are,” from their February 2013 self-titled debut EP, Western Avenue is taking their melody-driven blend of country and pop music to the US and around the globe. Already #1 on the Roots Music Report Pop Country chart and #26 on New Music they are rocketing up in the US and Canada. Weekly,We are proud they are stopping by Music FridayLive! this week on the way.
Rory Partin had his first taste of the big time singing backing-up for five-time Grammy winner Larnelle Harris. After over three years touring internationally with Harris, Partin returned to the states and settled in Nashville, eventually leading Rory Partin & His All-Star Big Band. Now in Los Angeles, Partin has redefined himself as a solo artist, a powerhouse of blue-eyed soul, backed by an 18 piece band. He is also a hot blues and cajun artist and can rock the house. But this week, he and his wife Alexa James (also known collectively as The ROAMies) bring their big band sound and signatrure harmonies to the Typhoon Club in LA, crooning "Georgia on My Mind" and other jazz and blues standards. Best of all, they talk to us on Friday at 11:30 am PT.

The big band sound comes to Rated G Radio in Hour 1 tonight with SASHA'S BLOC featuring their album Heart On Fire!
Jazz collective Sasha’s Bloc solidifies their growing presence on the U.S. music scene with an original album that hearkens back to the Big Jazz Band sound of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, and to a performance style that evokes such seminal acts as Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Count Basie, Scott Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald and more.
Sasha’s Bloc is an amalgam of varied artists, nationalities and experiences, all fueled by bassist and songwriter Alex Gershman to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes jazz linger as an American phenomenon. On Heart On Fire, Gershman is honored to have Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit perform on multiple tracks.
The group’s core nonet is comprised of Nora Rothman, vocal; Brandon Fields, saxophone; Alex Budman, saxophone, clarinet; Kye Palmer, trumpet, Bob McChesney, trombone; Kevin Winnard, drums; Steve Cotter, guitar; Andy Langham, piano. Guest artists on the upcoming album include: Jane Monheit, vocal; Alvin Chea, vocal; Patrick Tuzzolino, vocal; Princess Fortier, vocal; Glynis Leflore vocal; Octavia Pace vocal; James Lum, banjo; Jason Fabus, accordion; Marc T. Bolin, Tuba. Gershman plays upright bass and electric bass.

My copy of "Sing, Sing, Sing" (introducing "Christopher Columbus" [Louis Prima]) is 12" RCA Victor 36205A-B. The top of the label says "Swing Classic," perhaps suggesting that it was part of a set; I don't have the rest of the set, if indeed it came with. The entire personnel of the Goodman band at that time is listed on the labels (both sides!). Included are such luminaries as Hymie Schertzer and Adrian Rollini, saxes; Harry James and Ziggy Elman, trumpets; Harry Goodman (BG's brother), string bass; Jess Stacy, piano; Gene Krupa, drums. Total 14 (5 reeds, incl. BG; 3 trpts., 2 trombones, 4 rhythm (piano, bass, drums, guitar). Mmm, not a bad bunch

Faithful people go through many trials or tests, but no matter what they endure the trial and get the lesson or lessons. Right before and trial ends most times trouble comes, but faithful people know it is a huge blessing coming because of the troubles. The more troubles the bigger the blessing or blessing
Most people on trial who stand before a natural or human judge just want it to end be over with and move on. But the believer many times are learning from being in the mist of a spiritual trial.
