If you are reading this - and you have read other biographical information that your show host has written about hundreds of artists, then this will take you by surprise. I am totally freaked out. LOL!!! Because Nathan East is something else ENTIRELY.
Over three decades of support for household names. A few - let's alphabetize: Barbra Streisand, Eric Clapton, Daft Punk (Grammy Awards here, pay attention!), Herbie Hancock, Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Toto, Whitney Houston....still breathing? Oh, I KNOW, y'all! This is what I'm SAYING - this man is a ROCK of mass appeal. Genre jumping, bass busting, talent. Quincy Jones has said: "He's so talented it's ridiculous!"
A little background so yers truly can calm down. Born in Philadelphia, Nathan was four when his family (eight kids!) moved to San Diego. Nathan studied cello first, then became interested in bass when he was 14. His influences: Mingus and Ron Carter. Electric: Paul McCartney and Chuck Rainey.
On the road with Barry White when he was 16, his resume just grew from THERE. Multiple awards, soundtracks that are too numerous to mention, co-founding Fourplay, an online electric bass school, an accomplished magician as well as everything else just discussed - and - drumroll, please: over 2,000 credits to his name. Honest to God, one of the most recorded Bass players in musical history.
The reason for this visit from the esteemed Nathan East on 9/1: his partnership with Fourplay member, Bob James. Their astonishing project, "The New Cool" is about to drop. THIS host has dropped already, hearing it! Music to captivate and haunt, it's the crown jewel within the Yamaha Family, the company that is sponsoring this golden event.
What a thrill to bring you a glimpse into Nathan East. Second hour. Get your seat EARLY :)
Join us this evening, when I interview Anita King and share music from her CD Sultry. Her CD presents jazz standards and her voice is expressive, soulful and melodic. Her vocal abilities have carried her around the world from the Vatican to the Super Bowl to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and singing at the inauguration of President Barack Obama. She has performed with the gospel group Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music and provided backup vocals for Mariah Carey, Shakira, Bobby McFerrin, Herbie Hancock and Bruce Springsteen. I look forward to spending time with all of you this evening. Jazz lives at Jazz Notes.

Singer/Songwriter Kwame Binea joins the show tonight to share his new EP "Shakedown." We couldn't wait for a Friday Night Dance Party to get Kwame on the program - his music is too important to not share tonight!
"Kwame Binea Shakedown" features four tracks including the group's first single "Let Go" (released in early April), their most recent single, "Hang On" (released in mid-June) and "Little Lady" and "Waiting," which have never been released. Musically, the EP showcases Binea's "roots rock" lineage, which is a fusion of rhythmic rock n' roll, ample dosages of infectious funk, silky soul, screaming blue s and just a smidgeon of reggae and funk.
