    "Up Close & Personal" with composer, keyboardist "Jonathan Fritzen"

    in Music

    Jonathan Fritzen


    Take one of the hottest composers and keyboard players in instrumental pop, add in featured performances from the likes of Gerald Albright, Paul Taylor and Nils Landgren, hook them up with ten wonderful new tunes and what do you have?  The answer is ‘Fritzenized’, the latest album from the Billboard chart-topping, artist Jonathan Fritzén.

    It is the Swedish American’s fifth solo CD and follows the critically acclaimed ‘Magical’ from which the title cut blasted a path to #1 on every smooth jazz airplay chart on the planet.

    The fact that even before it’s release date, ‘Fritzenized’ has already become a chart topper says much for a collection that, two years in the making, is Fritzén’s most personal to date.  Writing, producing and (for the first time) mixing every track, he comes closer to his true musical vision than with any other project he has created so far.

  • Up Close & Personal with Cool Bassist of The New Cool "Nathan East"

    in Music

    Masterfully “Cool”: An album unlike any other by

    Bob James and Nathan East


    “The New Cool,” an expansive acoustic offering centered on scholarly jazz piano and bass duets, will be released September 18, a first from the GRAMMY®-honored artists and long-time collaborators. 


    Nashville, Tennessee (7 July 2015): Albums just aren’t made like the way “The New Cool” was made. Yamaha Entertainment Group label president Chris Gero put legendary keyboardist Bob James and master bassist Nathan East in the recording studio, equipped them with state-of-the-art Yamaha gear and gave them free reign to create. Recorded entirely in Nashville, the long-time collaborators emerged with an unexpected and audacious collection of original compositions plus a few handpicked classics, an acoustic jazz outing that will make you forget everything you thought you knew about these GRAMMY®-recognized artists best known as contemporary jazz luminaries. The disc produced by Gero, James and East will be released September 18.     


    “The New Cool” unfolds much in the way the meticulously-crafted project was conceived. The germ begins organically with a couple of intimate James and East duets. Pastoral piano wanderings explore the outer perimeter of straight-ahead jazz where they peruse, mirror and engage with meandering bass lines. In fact, more than half of the record’s compositions written by James and/or East are sparsely-produced, probing piano and bass sojourns.

    To: Owners of property in the Downtown Community Benefit District

    From: Carmen Sabatino, Mayor of Modesto 2000-2004

     I am seeking a second term as Mayor of Modesto and I want you to know that I will be seeking the repeal of the assessment fees the present Council has agreed to have imposed on you. The money is going to a group of private individuals who have formed a nonprofit to run their NEW CITY.

    Sixty-one per cent of voting owners voted against the district, and yet this assessment district was formed. The City and County provided 14.5% of the yes vote.

    To put it bluntly, owners were “scammed” with the process that left little doubt of the election outcome.
