HOSTING SHOW - BIG RAY
In the ten years that yours truly has been in Baltimore (this time around!), there are some significant talents that stand out. And always will. Some of the musicianship has been more than stellar. Let's call it haunting. And that is the case with the voice of Kristin Callahan.
Singing since she could speak, the vocal ability that Kristin has is worn like a second skin. She's comfortable singing - and it doesn't matter what genre. Though her golden throat lends itself naturally to Jazz and the Great American Songbook. And one wonders what's in Kristin's future - because if this is the beginning of her career and she's so good NOW - have mercy - what the heck else should we expect?!
Encouraged by both church and school early on, our Maryland Girl found herself in Washington, D.C. Under the tutelage of respected pianist and educator, Vince Evans. Vince was able to steer Kristin in a direction that felt both comfortable and challenging. And that challenge is something that she relishes. Her first project dropped in 2009, "A New Love." Last year, we heard the evolving bliss of Kristin with "One Magic Day." Some of the best in Baltimore and D.C. joined her on these 14 songs. Including Warren Wolf on vibraphone - and Vince Evans (of course!) on piano :)
Kristin's got an amazing opportunity to shine on 12/21/14. She's at the Chesapeake Arts Center - the same place where we last saw Jeffrey Osborne. She'll dip into both of her albums, some holiday tunes (no doubt!), and possibly give us a sneak preview of her forthcoming CD - which takes her into a new direction. 2015 should be QUITE interesting for our guest!
What a pleasure to share Kristin with you again - we had a lot of fun the first time that she visited! 12/16 at 3 p.m. Eastern - join us :)
Master Publicist Rick Scott has been working tirelessly to make sure that this came together - and he needs to get special recognition! Rick works HARD for his clients - and Rick Braun is one. The Ricks are awesome :)
The one that we'll have on the show TOMORROW, December 8th, has been a previous guest on "Hybrid Jazz." Why this time, you ask? Glad you ARE! Rick has a string of dates with his good friend, Peter White - whose Christmas tour is always hugely successful. We're speaking to Rick on Monday so that we can get a few events as much mileage as possible. He and Peter and Mindi Abair will be in Virginia on 12/8 - then at Ram's Head in Annapolis on Wednesday, the 10th. Several dates in Florida follow. And there is something else that's important to discuss - that's near and dear to Rick's heart. That is his BIG event in Tucson, Arizona on New Year's Eve.
There's even a website for us to ponder: www.rickbraunsnewyearseve.com Here's why it's so important to Rick - besides having Peter White join him - as well as long-time friend and collaborator, Richard Elliot - this whole endeavor brings focus to The Autism Society. You'll see that once you peruse the website. Emma Braun is Rick's teenage daughter. She is, like your host's son, under the autism spectrum. That's why it was a priority for us to have this special day and time for Rick to stop by and say hello. Our kids are everything to us - and awareness of their needs and the needs of other children are "Front Burner" subjects.
Here's another reason why I appreciate Rick Braun so deeply. One of his main inspirations in his most excellent musical journey has been Freddie Hubbard. Rick appreciates the masters and it shows! Welcome a beloved artist when he returns on 12/8!
Back in those days when families were gathered around the TV, yours truly remembers enjoying certain artists from "The Lawrence Welk Show." One of those acts was The McGuire Sisters. Their harmonies were amazing - the kind of blending and weaving that only family members can give us. And they conveyed such joy and hope! When listening to The Ault Sisters, you hear the same kind of magic. They sound absolutely angelic. So - how fitting to have them as guests this time of year?
In fact, The Ault Sisters will be our last guests of 2014. So, the show on 12/18 will truly be special :) Just a little background on Amanda, Alicia and Alanna - they are from Toronto and have been singing for a long time. Even though they are still quite young! All have had formal music education. And, though their musical tastes are different, they agree that Jazz lends itself to the complex harmonies that they so love. They first performed as a trio in 2004. In 2006, they released "Christmas Feelings" - and that album paved the way for so much to happen. Including a yearly holiday event at the popular Hugh's Room in their city. It's always a benefit show. And it's always much anticipated - many have said that it's not the season until they hear the Sisters perform at Hugh's!
That show this year is coming up - and, at the same time - the single by our trio, "May You Always", is doing REALLY well for them. It's the kind of song that lingers in your spirit once you've heard it.
Please join us for a triumverate of beautiful young ladies who have been blessed with fabulous voices. They will truly make you feel Christmas!
See you in The Chat Room - we'll miss you in the days to come as "Hybrid Jazz" takes an extended hiatus. Blessings to ALL!
