Darren Barrett’ - Debuts newly released seventh album, “Trumpet Vibes.
For the first time in his award-winning career, the trumpeter-composer-producer explores his Jamaican roots on a recording project. Adeptly, the Boston-based artist from Toronto introduces good-time reggae rhythms and frenzied ska beats native to his parents’ Caribbean homeland to hard bop and swinging jazz on the eight-song set that he produced and wrote four new compositions.
A charismatic companion to engage in meaningful discourse and occasionally play foe to his astute trumpet play, Barrett selected the vibraphone to share the spotlight as a featured “voice” throughout the session, with noted vibes soloist Warren Wolf guesting on a pair of tracks to participate in improvisational banter with a young trio comprised of vibist Simon Mouillier and brothers Alexander and Anthony Toth on bass and drums respectively. Also of significance is that Barrett opens the session by saluting his late mentor, trumpet great Donald Byrd, on the chirpy swinger “Fly Little Bird.” Interesting to hear him ply the jazz-meets-reggae motif to pop gems such as the regal “To Sir With Love” and amorous overtures like David Gates’ “Everything I Own” and Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amour.” Barrett shines on his own compelling compositions, including the moody and murky “Chiapas”; the deliberate “Song For A Princess,” on which he takes his time – nearly seven minutes - to bop and blow while cruising a laidback island wave; “Phantom dB” that gets a jarring jolt of rock & roll drumming and some dissonant trumpet distortion; and the slightly more conventional straight-ahead jazz foray “The Club Up The Street” that wraps the disc.
On last week's show Pastor Carlton Lee of the Flood Christian Church came on to talk about the kickball contest between his church and Blow Your Trumpet Ministries. Well, on today's show Prophet Marcus Mickles of Blow Your Trumpet joins us to share his thoughts about this upcoming match up.
No one is signing up to suffer, but it is inevitable if you are going to be used by God. The best humble pie is suffering, because you notice that when you have endured through a trying time you gain a greater appreciation of God. Remember you said that you wanted a closer walk with Jesus, well let's start the process.
It is yet confirmed that I can see that people refuse to embrace the word of God. They say that they are a Christian, saved, tongue talking, spirit filled, bible carrying, usher serving, dancing and shouting in church people but they look like and act like the world. The church today is just another religious extension of the world in different locations.
The first thing people do when they want to get their life right, they go to church. I beg to differ because now you are still continuing being lost with other lost people that are just as mixed up as you are. Everywhere in the bible the great men of God came to Jesus not went to church. Wake up today and truly start the process of your salvation through Jesus Christ
The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war. This is truly a word of wisdom. As we start 2016, most Christains have a skewed vision of what season we are in. This is not the time to focus on your happiness or anything that makes you comfortable, but it is a time to be bold as lions in the face of great persecution and tribulation for Christ's sake. Are you ready to go on the battlefield in the name of the Lord? Ready or not, tribulation has come!
I am provoked all the more to press into the things of God when I look at the resume of those God used in the Bible. People carelessly say that they are Christians without baring the power of God in their lives. Let every man be a liar and God's word true. Either you are a son or a sodomite. There is no 50 shades of gray.
We are seeing the Beginning of the End as we look at are Current Events. Things are speeding up and we have but a small window of time to get ourselfs and family ready for his coming. Jesus is on his was to bring Judgement on this Earth. We will talk about Bible Prophecy and the Soon Coming of Jesus for his church. Join us on the Prophecy Zone as we talk about what could be happening in the Next few weeks and Years.
Right now we live in this world and all that we may know and desire in and of this world has already passed away. All the gifts you gave and received are passed away. The food you stayed up all night preparing for one day and enjoyed eating has passed away.....so then why do we invest so much in the here and now at the expense of eternity.
