September has already proven to be QUITE different than we've previously experienced on "Hybrid Jazz!" Multiple guests, time changes and even DAY changes. But we MUST to accommodate our guests - and it's exciting to ponder - because this truly means a surge of musical activity! New CDS, gigs to share and clubs popping with the sound of creative artists.
One of THOSE in the Uber Creative category is the fabulously charismatic violinist, Chelsey Green. Born in Houston, Chelsey was immersed in the Jazz and Funk of her family - lots of musicianship there. So how is it the similarly inclined music lover gravitated to violin at age FIVE?! And steered toward an education in Classical studies? Chelsey will answer that question when she joins us in the third hour of the show on 9/17. And SOON - we'll have to call her Doctor Green - since she is doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland in College Park :) We'll hear tracks from her forthcoming CD - you had best believe it! "The Green Room" drops on 9/23!
Gil Parris is a truly respected guitarist, based in New York, and known for his seamless transitions within his playing. He prides himself on the fusion of Jazz, Rock and Blues - sometimes Country - in his repertoire. He was attending Berklee in Boston many years ago - when he was tapped to tour in Europe with "Jesus Christ, Superstar." Gil has never looked back since then! Grammy nominated, Gil has recorded six solo albums and has worked with an extraordinary number of artists - Dr. John, Toni Braxton, and Blood, Sweat & Tears - to name a few. Paul Shaffer and Randy Brecker have raved about him, as most of The Big Apple does. And he'll play there on Thursday night at B.B. King's! Which is why we've airing "Hybrid Jazz" on Wednesday ;) Join us!

Over the past 30 years, I must have studied enough on my own to become a Rhodes Scholar but I attained no degrees, short of the minimum requirement–a high school diploma–in 1974. More than this degree in society’s de-education of my intelligence was too much to bear. The price for a further dulling of intelligence required I assume too many others’ degrees of BS, BMs, acidic PhDs of borrowed knowledge. Thus after a number of interesting adventures, nervous breakthroughs and jumps into the unknown, I currently, and somewhat cheekishly, go by the title “Rogue” scholar.
I define myself this way because I am in rebellion with education in general. I see it as the root cause of perpetuating fossilized traditions and human misery. I specifically rebel against the famous dictum ‘those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.’
I propose that those who teach the lessons of history have done a lousy job and therefore have doomed us to repeat the lessons of history.
We teach each new generation to repeat the past and call it the future and that past is full of false promises, aggression and war. The costumes and technology may change but essentially the same fearful, judgmental, aggressive and warmongering human pathologies are spoon fed to the young until they turn green with it and believe as they are told that this color of prejudiced perception is ‘normal.’ If war, and aggression is to end, then programming each new generation to repeat the past has to end. I therefore strive in my books on past and future history to expose the taken-for-granted flaws in perception.
I have written 18 books and counting on the tradition of prophecy; in other words, the ancient fascination half baked with true paranormal intuition, topped with good educated guesses. They have been printed and passed out 1.3 million copies published in 19 languages.
On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will discuss the many subliminal and overt messages that Hollywood is projecting to Black people and about Black people. What messages are we missing in their movies and tv shows? Is it realistic to think you can just ignore and don't watch tv and it won't affect your Black life? Why must we always be mindful of what Europeans are saying on their tv shows and in their movies? Join us in this discussion
