How fabulous to have my friend, Bass Master/Composer/Teacher/Clinician/Mentor Christian de Mesones return to "Hybrid Jazz!" In previous visits, Christian and yours truly would discuss upcoming scenarios for Groove Skool, a group that has earned wide respect for several years. But our guest has NEVER been the kind of artist to let the grass grow under his Big New Yawk feet ;) He has plans for shows and projects - and thoughts to share!
This charismatic individual has been playing bass for over 30 years. At 18, he graduated from what is now known as The Musician's Institute in Hollywood, California. There, he had the opportunity to study with Abe Laboriel, Steve Morse, Pat Metheny, and Ray Brown - among others! By request from a famous faculty member (a guest of the school), Christian performed an original for graduation. And made Pat Martino extremely happy!
Thereafter, Christian served as superlative bass man for a number of groups - in Hawaii, Virginia and New York (of course!) In the mid-80's, he was a key member of "Twice Shy" - out of The Big Apple. Heavy Metal. Oh, yes, this man is known to be HYBRID, Baby! Multiple genres. A move to the South put him in the spotlight with Hip Hop and R & B acts - and he was the bassist for the popular "Big Patt and Legion" in Richmond - they were known for drawing exceptionally large crowds.
When Christian made the move to Northern Virginia, things came to a delightful musical boil: he was teaching, getting involved with students (ask him about his "Bass Symphony!") and creating the vibe for Groove Skool. Now, a BIG show for Big New York looms - the reason for his visit - and we hear that there's another recording in the future! Let's put it to you this way: his visits are never boring. LOL! Join us on 7/24 - in The Chat Room!

In January, 2014, John welcomed two students from Cohort 92, which at that time was the newest cohort that had begun the MSOL program. The idea was to have those students check in every six months or so to share with listeners how the program is going, what they are learning and any other insights they may have to share. Today John is joined by one of the students from that first show, John Merola, along with two new students who will be first time guests - Steve Creps and Danelle Bunney. Listen in to hear firsthand reports of how the program is impacting their lives and what they are learning.
The MSOL program does not require a thesis or exams to fulfill graduation requirements. Instead, the program has students prepare a final summary that contains all the artifacts of their work over the two years of the program. This Integrated Leadership Project includes an introduction, ten response papers (one for each course), 30 annotated bibliographies, a capstone summary, a comprehensive list of references, and other projects completed throughout the program, the latter to be included at the discretion of the students. Today Dr. Deb Jeannett, full-time MSOL faculty member, two alums, and one current student (soon to graduate) will join John to discuss this unique aspect of the MSOL program.

Carl Lindbergh attended California State University Long Beach and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in film production in 2000. Shortly after graduation, Lindbergh formed his first production company, ANOC productions i.e. A NO ONE CARES PRODUCTIONS. The company would primarily focus on the funding and production of his feature films.
The Bunny Man character was inspired by the true story of an axe-wielding man in a bunny suit who terrorized residents of Fairfax County, Virginia in 1970. Going wild with that inspiration, writer/director Carl Lindbergh and his company ANOC Productions created and released Bunnyman in 2011. Despite mixed reviews, the film gained a sizable following and has been known to play back-to-back on the cable TV channel Chiller.
