Crazy - this is a show that wasn't planned - it just fell into this groove - which is the story of my two guests! Rick Braun was booked for July 1st. But Richard Elliot was going to do the last Friday in June. But the call came - could we please re-schedule for 7/1? Hah! SO: Old Friends and Musical Partners will share a "Hybrid Jazz" - thrilling!
Exciting - Rick with his 16th album, "Can You Feel It" - and Richard with his 17th, "Lip Service." The first is due on 7/8 and the second on 7/15! Real and heartfelt music - and surrounded by musicians who understand the nature of what these successful artists wanted to convey. That's priceless. And what it does is drive home the point - more than ever - of WHY Rick and Richard have been so popular through the years.
Rick started his roll with the song by REO Speedwagon, "Here With Me." Word got out and he found himself playing with Rod Stewart, Natalie Cole, Tina Turner, Sade, Tom Petty and War. His album, "Beat Street" (1994), was a tribute to his years WITH War. And on his new CD, Rick wanted to convey the same spirit. Helping him out here: young players and seasoned pals like Philippe Saisse and Dave Koz. AND Elliot Yamin!
Can you believe that it's 30 years since the release of Richard's solo debut, "Initial Approach?" Our Scottish-born Dad of FIVE has been delighting us since - with his California Cool and Soulfully Hot Hybrid saxual expression (Ooooh!) He has toured the world as both leader and with "Guitars & Saxes" and Tower of Power. His collaboration with Paul Brown on this new CD is brimming with romance! WAIT until you hear :)
Join us on 7/1!

This is the first time that I could actually list an artist - from A to Z - that Winston Byrd has had in his circle. He has played trumpet for over two decades with the best of the best...ready for a taste of that alphabetized list? Abbey Lincoln/Blood, Sweat & Tears/Chaka Khan/Dells/Ellington's Orchestra/Fathead Newman/Grateful Dead/Horn (as in Shirley)/ I - as in Will.I.Am - whew! It goes ON and on!
Winston hails from Wilmington, Delaware - so he heard the music of the extended Philadelphia region, as well as New Jersey and New York. What steered him in his musical journey, initially, was feeling the sound of Maynard Ferguson (in seventh grade!) - then seeing Dizzy Gillespie with Jon Faddis on the 1986 Grammy telecast. Jon actually became a mentor - and introduced our guest to some pivotal admirers who would pave the way for more awesome associations. And SO much work! Music that was developed "on the road" as opposed to what could have been learned in the classroom. Part of that amazing journey revolves around the artistry that Winston has developed with big bands. Orchestras. He loves ALL of it, though. Way beyond HYBRID, this one! LOL! This is Multiple Genre Magic that Winston Byrd has cultivated.
Two albums to his credit - and we'll hear tracks from both. "Soul Searchin'" and "The Tao of Pooh" bring to your ears a full fruition of all that expertise he has brought to performances and projects by other artists. If you do the research, you'll see one rave review after another from fans of trumpet who cannot believe what they're hearing. Winston Byrd is THAT good :)
What we'll have for you is superb music and conversation - and a special July 4th show. Gather friends and join us!
Since our beautiful and multiply talented guest was with us last time, MUCH has happened - all good! Ragan told us that she had a new project coming - and here it is! Released on July 8th, it's already being pushed to the top - Ragan has SO many fans who have waited for this :) And there's MORE news to share: just a month or so ago, Ragan won a prestigious award from "Black Women in Jazz & Fine Arts" - prod her to tell us about that - it won't take much, believe it. She is very proud of this - and understandably so!
If you aren't familiar with the background of this flutist/vocalist/composer/arranger, prepare to be impressed. Ragan was playing multiple instruments at the age of FIVE! But the piano, drums and violin didn't compare to the love she had for the flute. Classical studies were a natural transition for her - just as natural - immersing herself after her education (Cleveland Institute of Music, Harid Conservatory) in New York. But NOT classically ;) Ragan dove into Jazz, Funk and R & B - and did it ALL with flair!
She won the Capital Jazz Fest's coveted "New Artist Competition" - and released her debut album thereafter. With "Class Axe" in 2007 - then "Evolve" in 2012 - you can hear just that: EVOLUTON! Trusted and acclaimed producers and arrangers, Dennis Johnson and Bob Baldwin, assisted in conveying the "Raganometry" that's a trademark of everything she does. Like the Pillsbury Dough Boy, Ragan Whiteside is Poppin' Fresh, 24/7! One listen to the new "Quantum Drive" and you'll hear another LEVEL of that! Check out who was happy to come onboard for this endeavor: Bob Baldwin, of course - he was an EARLY believer in Ragan. Plus, Althea Rene, Frank McComb and Patrice Rushen!
Cynthia Crawford was born a fraternal twin with totally different blood type and tissue type than her twin sister. Unlike her twin, she was born without an amniotic sac, baffling the medical community. Prior to her birth, her father had been approached by agents with the OSS to participate in a secret government project, it was not until she was in her mid 30s that she learned from her father that she was a hybrid created in a petri dish by a government program utilizing DNA from two different alien races added to human DNA. Throughout Cynthia’s toddler years, she was taken to underground military medical facilities at night for testing and examinations. During this time and throughout her life, she also encountered what she believed were alien abductions, examinations, impregnations, as well as miraculous healings and organ replacements. Through the 1950s and into the late 1970s Cynthia tried to seek help and understanding of her experiences, but there were no support groups at that time, nor could she find anyone who would believe her experiences. She was also chastised for having and using psychic powers. Her life changed when she gave up fear to consciously face these other worldly beings, only to learn that they are her star family. In 2003, Cynthia began making ET sculptures with the assistance of the various benevolent star beings that she had encountered, and that other contactees had. experienced. Today, Cynthia devotes her life to doing counseling, workshops and talks, teaching how we are all connected to the star people and how to live in an integrated Galactic society in the very near future. Her website is http://etsculptors.com.
How wonderful to have Minas brought to my attention! Not only are they based in the old hometown of Philadelphia, but they conjure the most fabulous images of another favorite place: Brazil! Patricia King and Orlando Haddad form the nucleus of this marvelous energy...and they can perform as duo, ensemble, in an orchestra or big band. And they're celebrating 30 years of ALL of these configurations this year :)
Minas was formed in 1978 at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. When Patricia and Orlando found their unique groove, they also found themselves performing on the East Coast. Inspired by their reception and hungry to learn more about their passionate musical roots, they moved to Brazil. There, they absorbed their destiny - feeling the vibe of the country, immersing themselves in the culture and music that fueled their dreams. Having fulfilled a mission, they returned to the States in 1984. Audiences grew to love their fresh and authentic take a myriad of Brazilian styles: from Bossa to Blues, Choro, Folk and Samba. And they are equally as comfortable in Jazz and Classical. Matter-of-fact, Minas is about to present an operetta on the World Cafe, based in Philly!
Instrumentalists, Composers, Vocalists, and Devotees of Musical Imagery, Patricia and Orlando are amazing at what they do! And they're visiting "Hybrid Jazz" to draw attention to a very special event that's coming up in July - a live and intimate gathering at one of our beloved establishments in Charm City.
Get to know Minas by heading to www.minasmusic.com. Make sure you hear them on Pandora - they have their own radio station! And find a comfy seat in The Chat Room on 6/19. You'll hear inspirational music and conversation - that's a promise!
Yes, I had to shout-out Vel Lewis regarding his multiple talents! Keyboardist, Organist (actually, a multi-instrumentalist), Composer, Arranger, Producer and Vocalist - guess I need not explain further ;)
Our versatile and unstoppable guest was born in The City of Brotherly Love - and it didn't take long in his professional life for other artists to demonstrate how MUCH they DID love Vel Lewis. While still VERY young, he was asked to join a televised Jazz program in Philadelphia. This led to studio work - and it paved the way for an association with Ira Tucker, Sr., lead singer with the Dixie Hummingbirds. Vel found himself on the Paul Simon song, "Love Me Like a Rock" and on Stevie Wonder's "Jesus Children of America."
Meanwhile, Vel was in a group that was growing in popularity - The Futures. They were signed to Philly International Records and performing alongside Grover Washington Jr., The O'Jays and The Supremes. The Futures had a name change, but that surely did not affect Vel's popularity - HE was now working with more A-list talent - household names.
Along the way, he found the time to compose music for "The Sopranos", "Fresh Prince of Bel Air", "Mad About You" and more. And he was able to focus on his own music for the career that he wished to have for VEL LEWIS :) After all those years of making sure other artists sounded great when he added his personal touch, it was time to concentrate on what he could do as leader of the band. You'll see his discography when you visit Vel Lewis Dot Com. And you'll hear tracks from "Colors Of Soul" when Vel drops by on 7/8. Once you hear his music, you'll know that he made a "sound" decision! Please join us - we've got some surprises in store for you on this show ;)

Sam Rucker's reputation was already solid before his new project was released. He had been a Hip Hop producer who had also written for several artists. And God knows that he either opened for or performed with even MORE - including most of the artists who accompanied him on "Tell You Something."
There is much to say about this Virginia Beach native...and that's because there is so much inside of him. He feels so strongly about conveying a message through his saxophone. "All About Jazz" calls what Sam does: Sax Sermons. He combines what he intuitively knows about Hip Hop grooves - with Jazz melodies - and delivers those inspirational vibes along with both. What results is some kind of positively infectious music, infused with Soul and sweetness, hope and encouragement.
But, really - don't take yer friend's word for it - ask those who have eagerly participated in the team effort to get Sam Rucker's word OUT. Like Norman Connors - who brought Sam onto his "Starship" (orchestra!) - and produced tracks on Sam's buzzworthy CD. And here's somebody else who could tell you about the exciting music of Sam Rucker: fellow sax man, Euge Groove. Euge mixed and mastered "Tell You Something!" Also on board? Bobby Lyle, Tom Browne and the incredible voice of Alyson Williams :)
You're beginning to understand the reasons for the buzz...here's a multi-instrumentalist who has been an Apollo Theater crowd favorite - who showed us promise with the release of 2011's "Heat From The Heavens." Now, with his confidence and artistry soaring, Sam Rucker more than delivers on that promise. How can you help but love a guy who writes a song called "Be True 2 Who U R?" And he MEANS it!
