    Washington, D.C. has many exceptional vocalist, join me this evening when I interview one of them, Heidi Martin.  She is a vocalist and composer who is a native Washingtonian.  Also, trumpeter Russell Gunn who grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois will join us. Heidi Martin and Russell Gunn will perform together at Bohemian Caverns this weekend.  Heidi studied at the University of the District of Columbia with Professor Calvin Jones.  In addition, she took private lessons with drummer/vocalist Grady Tate.  Since that time she has performed in New York often and around the world.  Russell Gunn has had a Grammy nominated recording, Ethnomusicology vol. 1.  In 1999, Oliver Lake saw him performing in St. Louis and invited him to perform in New York.  Next, he was heard by Denis Jeter, an assistant to Wynton Marsalis at Lincoln Center, who recommended him for the third trumpet chair in Marsalis' Blood on the Fields.  After receiving rave notices for his performances, he began to earn recognition.  As a result, he has many recordings and has traveled all over the world playing jazz music.  Jazz lives at Jazz Notes!

    in Music

        Many jazz musicians have decided to make Washington, D.C. their home after traveling over the world performing jazz.  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.   Join us as he shares information about his music and we listen to his CD, Offering.  Jazz lives at Jazz Notes.

    JAZZ VOCALIST VICTOR FIELDS

    in Entertainment

    Contemporary jazz vocalist, Victor Fields, joins forces with smooth jazz guitarist, Chris Camozzi, for a head-bobbing and soulful rendition of a Lou Rawls classic!  The Lou Rawls Project is a sultry, bluesy and easy swinging set featuring lush, sophisticated re-imaginings of ten Rawls classics.  Victor's rich gauzy tenor and his ability to move seamlessly between the blues, jazz, R&B and Pop prompted the legendary Lou Rawls to call him “the man with the golden voice” and the Los Angeles Times to describe him as "a stylistically accomplished singer who deserves much more attention."
