3D Na’Tee (pronounced Three Dee Nah-Tee), was born Samantha James in the notoriously rough city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Having to deal with extreme hardship and tragedy in her home, Na’Tee turned to poetry and music at an early age as a way to release tension and gain a sense of inner calm amidst the chaos and confusion that surrounded her. Na’Tee knows the turmoil of the street life all too well. She is the oldest child and the only girl of parents who sold drugs, and later fell victim to the same fate as many of the people they sold to over the years. Her mother and father became addicted to drugs when Na’Tee was just a child.

BLACKWELL is a vocal trio comprised of Carey Blackwell, brother Dan Blackwell & Braiden Turner. They've been busy working on their craft since forming in 2012. The trio has just released a great single called Redneck Style.
Carey and Danny were raised in a musical family from Cochrane, Ontario, and Braiden, also from a musical family and, like Carey and Danny, has spent most of her life writing and recording songs and performing live.

As songwriters and singers, they have come together and shown that they have that something extra-special…something fresh and unique.
Carey is not only a singer/songwriter but also one of the premier guitarists to emerge onto the world stage; Danny’s voice is a soaring instrument, powerful and compelling; Braiden’s gifts as a versatile singer/songwriter and pianist round out the BLACKWELL sound.

Jonathan Karrant was born in the heart of America at the foothills of the Ozarks in the old western town of Fort Smith, Arkansas east of the Arkansas River.
His recent album “On and On” made it to number four in the All About Jazz charts.
The album features such songs as “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight” and “Doodlin’”, as well as the title track, and was produced by Tyler Monks, with pianist Josh Nelson, bassist Rob Thorsen, guitarist Mark Shapiro, and drummer Duncan Moore.
Audiences have characterized Jonathan as a great interpreter of song, a storyteller, a singer who brings music and lyric alive.
Some refer to Jonathan as an amazing song-stylist who sings from the American songbook, an entertainer of star quality.
Others say he paints a picture, he presents a mood and captivates a room through song.
Jazz Corner said “Karrant’s voice is romantic without being cloying, warm but not forced” and “that he sings standards with an emotional weight that make it seem as if he had written the songs himself”.
He will tell you that he has an innate connection with music writers of the past, masters like Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Sammie Cahn, Julie Styne, Johnny Mercer, to mention a few.
He will tell you that he has great respect for such giants as Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James, Little Jimmy Scott, Nancy Wilson and Johnny Hartman.

This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
Hybrid Jazz has always strived to show class, dignity and variety with each episode. What you'll hear on 7/22/14 takes all of that to a new level. Helen Sung has been captivating listeners - via recording or live - since she emerged on the New York scene in the late 90's. But I'm getting ahead of myself ;)
Born to Chinese immigrants in Houston, our guest was playing piano at five. Her teacher was strict and permitted Helen to play only Classical music - which she did throughout her education at the respected Houston High School of Performing and Visual Arts. Her motivation for college: to teach and to perform when possible. All that changed when she saw Harry Connick, Jr., on stage - in Helen's last year of University of Texas at Austin.
The transition was swift. Obsessed with visualizing Harry's fingers on the piano, Helen got a hold of Everything-That-Is-Jazz: from Jelly Roll Morton to Keith Jarrett. She received dual degrees in Texas, but her eye was on the inaugural program at the Thelonious Monk Institute in Boston. It was mutual love - Helen's unique talent was now under the watchful eye of Artistic Director, Ron Carter. She toured with the Cream of the Jazz Crop - across the water with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. It changed her life. And ours who are fans.
That move to New York cemented what many already knew, including Wynton Marsalis, who now has HIS eye on where Helen Sung will land next. Terri Lyne Carrington knows, Helen having been a key component in the award-winning "Mosaic Project" in 2011. The Kennedy Center realizes her power, too - she is a recipient of the Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition.
Her sixth project, "Anthem For a New Day" is brilliant and brave. We could go ON for days about Helen Sung - but let HER tell her story: on 7/22/14 :)
