Batten down the hatches and hold on to your butts...it's yet another YA fantasy book turned into a movie. Some people are calling it the next Harry Potter, sane people are calling it quits. It's yet another thrilling episode of Black Geek Movie Talk!
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!
We're quite honoured to have Jack Long, the founder of Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, Yorkville Sound, and Traynor Amplification on this week's show - especially because, in addition to pioneering three brands that are probably recognizable to every musician in the country, was also just named to the Order of Canada for 2014 alongside peers like Rick Mercer and Chris Hadfield.
We also have an interview with Halifax-based celtic rock outfit The Stanfields. The band's official video for "Hard Miles" was just released and they're about to embark on a fall tour, primarly covering their home province of Nova Scotia. They're a riotous live band and have contributed to Canadian Musician in the past, so we're happy to have caught up with them at the Toronto Urban Roots Festival to get a glimpse at what's coming up for their camp.
Elaine Joyce Singer
Elaine was born in Chattanooga and raised in Clarkesville , Tennessee not far from Nashville and the Grand ‘Ole Opry. Together with mom and dad, Elaine and her 7 brothers and sisters all shared a great love for music. All could sing and several could also write songs and play musical instruments. Even as a small child Elaine's youngest brother Billy Joe would sit for hours watching and listening to some of the great musicians to pass through Clarksville. Evenings were spent on the porch of their home and as kids they would find something to make a noise with. That noise blended into some pretty good music .Elaines sister Dorothy was referred to as the young Kitty Wells and older sister Fran was labeled as female Marty Robbins. Brother Johnny sounded like Merle Haggard. Brother Jimmy was a mean hot harmonica player and could sing. Ron a guitar player/singer. Herby was a drummer/singer. Elaine was the shy one and the last one to take up music and shoot for a career in the entertainment field.Elaine gave her life to the Lord at the tender age of 7 when attending a big Baptist Church in San Antonio Texas where a friend had taken her.

The Celebrity Link- Exploring the Popular Dance Styles of Jamaica over the years
Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. While sometimes used in a broad sense to refer to most types of popular Jamaican dance music , the term reggae more properly denotes a particular music style that evolved out of t..
Jamaican Ska is another music genre which emanated out of Jamaica during the late 1950s to early 1960s. Jamaica Ska is precursor to Rocksteady another popular Jamaican music genre. Rooted in Mento, American jazz and R&B Jamaica Ska gain recognition across the international music fraternity rapidly.
Jamaica Ska music is played with a combination of many instruments. The guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano, drums and organ are just some of the musical instruments used. The Jamaica Ska music is quite identifiable by the walking bass line on the offbeat. Jamaica Ska first and foremost was dance music in its inception. The music was then exported via immigrants to the U.K first before spreading throughout the world. Jamaica Ska was also known as blue beet music in the U.K during those years.
Although Jamaica Ska is dance music the first set of songs was heavily rooted in religious lyrics. Then there were nursery rhymes types of lyrics with a touch of Jamaican dialect. The third lyrics type was the rude boy and political which was then reflecting the social fabric of Jamaica.
By the early 1960s Jamaica Ska gave way to Rocksteady which is much slower rhythmically. However, around 1979 Ska rose again but this time out of England and spreading to other European countries and Australia. The third wave was when Jamaica Ska music had risen again during the 1990s engulfing many other countries.
