I just love it when guests come back to chat with me. Since Eric's last visit, not only does he have a brand new CD set to be released very soon, he is also involved in yet another community based project. As a performing artist, composer, teacher and businessman, Eric is more active and productive than ever and continues to strive for excellence in everything with which he is involved.
Oh, btw, I will have a very special co-host. So, make sure to tune in! talk to ya!
November 1 - Jazz Guitarist/Composer/Educator - Eric Essix
Eric Essix began his career as a recording artist in 1988 with his debut recording, First Impressions followed by Second Thoughts in 1989 on the Los Angeles based contemporary jazz label, Nova Records.
As a performing artist, composer, teacher and businessman, Eric is more active and productive than ever and continues to strive for excellence in everything with which he is involved.
Already having produced his own self tiled new album this year, Eric has already begun planning an early 2013 release which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 16th Street Church bombing with songs of healing, reconciliation and hope .
Eric recorded his debut album as a solo artist in 1988 for Nova Records called “First Impressions” and 15 albums later he is still making music that moves; that captures the imagination…that touches the emotions. Eric's last three recordings have been particularly revealing and personal, giving the listener an up close look at the man behind the music and the place he calls home, Birmingham. Eric grew up there in the midst of the turbulent 1960’s and, after an initial introduction to the guitar by the Beatles, got his start as a performer in the church. Today gospel music still informs and influences everything he does, however, early exposure to Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix greatly contributed to Eric’s sound and style as a guitarist. Join us for a cool jazz conversation with guitarist Eric Essix as he discusses his career and his latest work"My Gift To You"
Ooooh, this is gonna be a "Red Cups UP" interview! Hah! That's one of the tunes on Joey Sommerville's new CD, "Overnight Sensation" (oh, the irony THERE!). The song was lauded by "USA Today" columnist, Elysa Gardner. She just mentioned it the other day when she discussed new music that caught her ear. Bette Midler and Darlene Love and Joey - he was in the right company, wasn't he? Thanks, Elysa!
This will be the third go-round with Joey as guest. The first time was back in "Cool Jazz Conversations" days with Joy Hall. Then, he visited "Hybrid Jazz" with more exciting news two years ago. NOW? Honey, this a whole 'nother chapter in the Saga of Sommerville! The new project is SMOKING hot! In terms of artistry and variety. Joey has enlisted his friends to play with him: Earl Klugh, Elan Trotman, Eric Essix and Jeff Bradshaw. And he has stretched his wings and flown to beautiful new directions. He echoes the past so well while breathing life into it. Joey is adamant that you know he plays ALL kinds of music on that trumpet, but he truly has an affinity for the life of what Jazz is. Matter-of-fact, Joey is an "All That Jazz" award-winner. Let him tell you about that :)
Raised in the Baptist Church, Joey knew that if the congregation responded favorably to his trumpet, then his "soul communication" was on target :) Liiving in Atlanta now (from Detroit), Joey has played with everyone from Phish to Cirque de Soleil to the many stars who landed in 'Lanta for his Jazz After Dark Series. He's no stranger to touring or recording - he has honed his craft for YEARS - and to say that you're going to enjoy every note of what you'll hear on the new CD is an understatement! Join us in The Chat Room on 11/11!

Now more than ever, America needs more open and inclusive conversations about the stereotypes on police protection, police brutality, crime, civil liberties, public safety, and social justice in the context of race.
After many years of dissecting the driving factors on the issue of fragmentation and cohesion in American society, many of the same tragedies of error we've seen for years on race controversies continues to pervades the society. Race discussions, debate on race, or even race analysis are the so called inequality taboo topic of conversation in America. Silence on the issue of race only increases suspicions and erratic responses.
We are indeed in a delicate time.
In any democracy, the government belongs to the people, and the police, which exist within the executive branch – enforcing the law, essentially serve as a buffer of balance between individuals and between people -- maintaining law, order, safety and most importantly peace. If a police error results in a tragedy, the police should be the first to demonstrate contrition, not defense of erratic positions. Otherwise, the society is at risk of an increasing political totalitarianism. It is unimaginable for any cultural group to live inequitably compared to the rest of its pairs in the same country, especially one that promises individualism, equal rights before the law, and the four freedoms. And just as one group should not be a burden to another, so should none be sustained at the expense of the other.

In our last episode, we took one more look -- hopefully our last -- at a Gulf of Mistrust between some law enforcers and citizens of color we had hoped justice would serve equally. We learned of a community of believers to include 2.1 billion Christians who could touch and agree that #BlackLivesMatter. We witnessed evidence of endless possibilities for peace on Earth as the U. S. President found faith and favor enough to make business as usual a practice of the past.
HASHTAG #MY BROTHER’S KEEPER is the shortest distance between a divisive past and an inclusive vision of America’s Future. The question is how much do we want peace, justice and liberty, and how much are we willing to pay to secure it

My name is Dr. Ramona Brockett, the research that I will discuss on this episode of The LanceScurv Show comes from my dissertation where I used secondary data from the NCCD archives of the University of Michigan and ran a logistic regression to determine African American (AA) and European American (EA) perceptions of police aggression.
I looked at justified police aggression and unjustified police aggression. When I say, "aggression," I mean police action. The areas of perception included everything from arrests to helping old ladies across the street.
The most important findings were these:
(1) AA's in the upper glass approved of police aggression at a lower rate than lower class EA's;
(2) Working class AA's and Working class EA's approved similarly police to both justified and unjustified police aggression; and,
(3) working class AA's approve of both justified and unjustified police aggression at a higher rate than the upper class AA's, middle class AA's and lower class AA's. Dissimilarly, EA's approval is proportionate with class. So, upper class A's approve at the highest rates and approval decreases with class.
A second topic we need to explore is my Conceptual Incarceration Theory. This theory looks at the 13th Amendment and I contend that inherent within the wording of the 13Th Amendment, the AA is reinslaved upon incarceration. Thus, the reason why black life is devalued--we are not considered human. Thus, Garner etc., could easily be killed.
Lance and I look forward to your presence and participation in the sharing of my findings.
See you there!
