Jamaica may be synonymous with reggae, but if you ask Marlene Wright Evans, that’s just the tip of the tropical iceberg. “In January we started off with a jazz festival. And last year we had Celine Dione. That was our biggest-ever concert. People are still talking about it,” the Jamaica Urban Transit scheduler tells Carter Elite Travel host Lulu Carter. “This year we’re havin’ a fashion week, a kite festival, a health expo. Also theatre—we’re havin’ special shows in honor of our 50th anniverary. Best of all, we go to the market every morning and buy the freshest food—real Jamaican cooking that you won’t get in a hotel or on the street.”
Celebrating 10 years in the music industry, composer, keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist Nate Harasim, earned a Grammy nomination for his work on Dave Koz’s Billboard #1 Jazz Album Hello Tomorrow and a 2014 Soul Train nod for Vandell Andrew’s #1 hit “Let’s Ride.” He scored a #1 for Steve Oliver (“Fun in the Sun”) as one of 14 Top 20 tunes and has also helmed sessions for Darren Rahn, Steve Oliver, Lin Rountree, Julian Vaughn and Vandell Andrew, among others. A tireless entertainer Harasim’s hundreds of stage appearances include performing at President Obama’s Inaugural Ball with best pal Rahn and playing twice at the Dubai International Jazz Festival.
His new album “Shades of Nate” on Woodward Avenue Records, afforded him the creative license to produce an eclectic and out of the box record. On this release he worked with two rappers, K-Squeez and Dyl. Track # 7 is a “wild twist” as Jonathan Widran puts it, to a Beethoven song called Moonlight Sonata and he covers Phil Collins’ mega hit, In The Air Tonight featuring Melina and Nils. Other guest artists include, trumpeter Lin Rountree, saxophonist Elan Trotman, vocalist Anna Stevenson, drummer Ricky Lawson, and so many more!

This evening, I will interview Herman Burney a bassist, composer and educator who decided to reside in Washington, D.C. after traveling around America and the world performing music. He has performed with many musicians. For instance, he played the bass for 5 years with Freddie Cole and for 4 years with Rene Marie. The list of jazz performers that he has recorded and performed with is extensive. Rufus Reid described Herman as one of the finest bassist on the scene today.

Rising star Leslie Lewis drops by to talk about her key role in With Child, an indie gem of a film nominated for Best World Showcase at the 2015 SoHo International Film Festival. She will also discuss her other acting experience and projects. Her film credits include: Dead Broke, Starving Hysterical Naked, Almost in Love, The Better Man, Chaos Theory, Area Q, and Locked in a Garage Band. However, Leslie is probably best known for creating and starring in Miracle in Rwanda, a one-woman live show based on the life of Immaculée Ilibagiza, who survived the Rwandan genocide in 1994. Over 10,000 theatergoers in six continents have seen the show. This talented actress also played Dorothy Dandridge in another one-woman show titled Yesterday Came Too Soon at the National Black Theatre in Harlem.
Leslie’s role in With Child is her first appearance as a lead in a feature film. This unique movie tells the touching story of a widowed construction worker trying to rebuild his life as a single dad while struggling with the romantic advances of his eccentric new employer (played by Leslie). "When I read the script, I thought it would be a good fit for my first film as lead producer," Leslie explains. "I love the message of the film: What we choose now affects our past.”
