This week, we discuss the life, filmography and singing career of one of the world's great beauties, the incomparable Brigitte Bardot!
Kicking off her filmography at the tender age of 17, the woman who would become both international sex symbol and model for Marianne, the symbol of France would embark on a career encompassing more than 40 films in nearly 20 years, including work for such highly regarded auteurs as Louis Malle, Jean Luc Godard, Edward Dmytrk and Jean Cocteau.
With first husband and regular collaborator Roger Vadim, she starred in a film that singlehandedly kicked off the sexual revolution, much to the distress of censors and the forces of puritanism around the world. While their relationship and Vadim's rather Sadean influence led to a tumultuous personal life and involvement with any number of costars and jetsetters of the era, Bardot would emerge as a confident and outspoken presence who cut her career short to pursue a very public role in animal activism.
And yet, the lady is best known for and truly excels in the role of comedienne, of which she has left us several enjoyable celluloid examples...and did we mention her sideline as a pop singer, in regular collaboration with the legendary Serge Gainsbourg?
Join us as we delve in to the life and career(s) of the legendary Mme. BB!
Your hosts "Doc" Savage and Louis Paul
You already know that we cover the gamut of ALL That is Jazz on this show. We have had the most traditional of the straight-ahead crowd. We have had acts that are SO contemporary that they AIN'T Jazz ;) Cecil Ramirez is that most awesome of artists - trained at The Music Conservatory, University of the Pacific (at age 16!), worked hard on the road with his college band, Pacific Crossing, and formulated his music through a cross-section of inspirations - helped along by his rigorous schedule in recording studios in Northern California.
Who Cecil IS: a seasoned artist who is completely comfortable playing that Mason & Hamlin piano in a living room - or outdoors to several thousand fans. Something that needs to get said about our guest - while yours truly is typing this on Veterans Day: he's a military brat. And that fact tells you what is necessary about his music. Having lived in many places, one cannot help but be inspired by the many cultures and local flavor that surrounds you. Cecil has brought this to his music, too.
What a pleasure to have this consummate keyboardist, composer and arranger on the show! You ask Brian Culbertson about Cecil. Brian has had this amazing artist as a key figure at Mr. C's "Napa Valley Jazz Getaway" for a few years now. Whew, is Cecil's life kicking! And with "Party in the Back" (his second release), it's only UP from here. The personnel on the album - besides his friend and frequent music collaborator, Brian: Darren Rahn, Michael Lington, Phil Denny and Adam Hawley! So you KNOW that there are many who respect Cecil's vast talent. Including this writer!
Besides having worked with the A-listers in Contemporary Jazz, Cecil has also spent time working on behalf on charities. Including cancer prevention and autism awareness. Please join us during our visit on 11/12!

Health Tips and Controversial Tips
Last week: Avocado Seed, a Super Food. Use: wash seed, dry for a few days, pulverize, put in smoothy, yogurt, home made bread. Remember the 13 Health Benefits!
I use Flax Seed Meal instad of eggs to bake my home made bread. 3 scoops = 1 egg.
7 foods you should NEVER refrigerate:
1. Bananas - cold temps disrupts ripening process.
2. Tomatoes - they lose their flavor and become mushy in cold temps.
3. Coffee - cold temps destroy the natural oils within the coffee bean, the aromatic scent cannot be activated.
4. Sweet Potatoes - in cold temps starches turn into sugars, texture and flavor are destroyed
5. Avocados - cold temps disrupt the ripening process.
6. Apples - cold temps make Apples lose their texture and flavor.
7. Onions - get soggy in cold temps, smell up refrigerator and other foods
Conclusion: Buy only as much food as you can eat before it goes bad. Best way to have it fresh at all times is to grow your own garden. Vertical, horizontal, in ground, hydroponic...
Until Next Week! Stay Healthy and Empowered!

Special Guest: Toshi Reagon has been described as “a talented, versatile singer, songwriter and musician with a profound ear for sonic Americana—from folk to funk, from blues to rock” by critic/blogger Eva Yaa Asantewaa (InfiniteBody). “She masters each of these genres with vocal strategies that easily spiral and swoop from the expressively sinuous to the hard-charging, a combination of warmth and mischief.”
While her expansive career has landed her comfortably in residence at Carnegie Hall, the Paris Opera House and Madison Square Garden, you can just as easily find Toshi turning out a music festival, intimate venue or local club. Toshi finds home on any musical stage. Toshi has had the pleasure of working with Lenny Kravitz, Lizz Wright, Ani DiFranco, Carl Hancock Rux, Nona Hendryx, Pete Seeger, Chocolate Genius and many other amazing artists, including her favorite collaborator, her mom, Bernice Johnson Reagon.
Toshi has been the recipient of a NYFA award for Music Composition, The Black Lily Music and Film Festival Award for Outstanding Performance. She is a National Women’s History Month Honoree, and is the 2010 recipient of OutMusic’s Heritage Award. www.toshireagon.com
