Widespread Phish, Dead. Try to PANIC! but in a good way... Stay Greatful and saddle-up warrior poets! Those who love to ride jump on your ponies and enjoy!
Two special guests infiltrate the Denver Cellar and share their love of two bands who epitomize the "jam" genre. Our favorite teacher, Mr. Dawkins, who is still representing at the ol' alma mater, and the Joe the Denver to NYC transplant with close 100 live panic shows under his belt team up to give us a ride with Casey Jones on the Climb to Safety. Nols will peer outta the Farmhouse to throw in his two cents.
The Grateful Dead started it, Widespread Panic and Phish have carried the torch.
We're going to dig deep; get into some long tracks and mind blowing transitions. We'll explore personal experiences of epiphany and “wow” that can occur when you hear these guys rock n’ roll!
Ooooh, this is gonna be a "Red Cups UP" interview! Hah! That's one of the tunes on Joey Sommerville's new CD, "Overnight Sensation" (oh, the irony THERE!). The song was lauded by "USA Today" columnist, Elysa Gardner. She just mentioned it the other day when she discussed new music that caught her ear. Bette Midler and Darlene Love and Joey - he was in the right company, wasn't he? Thanks, Elysa!
This will be the third go-round with Joey as guest. The first time was back in "Cool Jazz Conversations" days with Joy Hall. Then, he visited "Hybrid Jazz" with more exciting news two years ago. NOW? Honey, this a whole 'nother chapter in the Saga of Sommerville! The new project is SMOKING hot! In terms of artistry and variety. Joey has enlisted his friends to play with him: Earl Klugh, Elan Trotman, Eric Essix and Jeff Bradshaw. And he has stretched his wings and flown to beautiful new directions. He echoes the past so well while breathing life into it. Joey is adamant that you know he plays ALL kinds of music on that trumpet, but he truly has an affinity for the life of what Jazz is. Matter-of-fact, Joey is an "All That Jazz" award-winner. Let him tell you about that :)
Raised in the Baptist Church, Joey knew that if the congregation responded favorably to his trumpet, then his "soul communication" was on target :) Liiving in Atlanta now (from Detroit), Joey has played with everyone from Phish to Cirque de Soleil to the many stars who landed in 'Lanta for his Jazz After Dark Series. He's no stranger to touring or recording - he has honed his craft for YEARS - and to say that you're going to enjoy every note of what you'll hear on the new CD is an understatement! Join us in The Chat Room on 11/11!

Phish trusts journalist Parke Puterbaugh to tell the band’s story and so should you!
Drawing upon nearly 15 years of exclusive interviews with the members of Phish and those in their employ, veteran music journalist Parke Puterbaugh delivers an insightful and authoritative biography of this beloved band and their quixotic career. Phish: The Biography thoroughly traces the quartet’s history from their formative years to their spectacular success as a prolific touring phenomenon. Puterbaugh examines the colorful chemistry - the unique mix of personalities, backgrounds and talents - that inspired the members of Phish to push their four-way experiment to the limit.
The book also candidly addresses the bumps in the road that followed Phish’s ascent to popularity, as rock’s hardest-working band also became one of its hardest-partying entities. Mounting excesses and internal dissent led to a two-year hiatus, a dramatic breakup, and a well-documented drug bust and courageous recovery from addiction for guitarist Trey Anastasio. The tale concludes with Phish’s triumphant reunion in 2009, marking one of the greatest comebacks in music history. An intimate and fascinating portrait, Phish: The Biography is the definitive story of these Vermont jamband legends.
A former senior editor for Rolling Stone magazine, Puterbaugh has written or cowritten numerous books and magazine articles on music, travel, the environment and other subjects.

It would stand to reason that Natalie Cressman would emerge - EARLY in life - as the profound talent that she has become. And is becoming. Both of those. Her Mother is the exquisite vocalist, Sandy Cressman, who heard the call of Brazil in her heart and pursued those musical traditions with a passion that carried over to her daughter (who is an equal opportunity embracer!) Dad, Jim, is a much in-demand recording engineer who has had beautiful associations with many artists - in his studio capacity and also as a trombonist.
Which brings us to the subject of a young woman who learned a multitude of genres as a child - who also learned to play the trombone like Dad - and sing from the influence of Mom. Who fell in love with words and style and creativity. Here's someone who recognized ALL of that in one 18 year-old rarity: Trey Anastasio from Phish. He was blown away by the maturity of Natalie at that age - a wisdom in her approach and freshness of sound that persuaded him to ask her to join his musical entourage. You can hear echoes of his mentoring in Natalie's second CD, "Turn the Sea." But make no mistake - it has the stamp of a VERY special singer/songwriter/trombonist on it. And here's why..
Natalie, already head-full of eclectic musical tastes in high school, had an injury that sidelined her ballet aspirations. She then turned her focus to the work that Mom and Dad had enjoyed all her life - and she dived into the waters of education at the Manhattan School of Music. With the full support of her family, she explored those waters and played Salsa, Latin Jazz (Pete Escovedo), World with the respected Peter Apfelbaum, and established an ongoing career relationship with Trey - as well as Nicholas Payton and Wycliffe Gordon.
In bloom and on fire, Natalie Cressman WILL be heard! You'll fall in love with what YOU hear. Promise!
