    Tell The Truth Tuesday: Black History Month should be EVERY month in your home

    in Entertainment

    Because I have a young son it is MY responsibility to educate him...not just the schools.We focus a lot on the past and people that DID things to move our culture and society forward. How come we never talk about the people that are LIVING Black History on a daily basis? It is of no small coincidence that we are going to watch an emmy award winning violinist this evening...he is Black. Violin isnt exactly synonymous with Black men. We dont speak much about Misty Copeland..the famed ballerina, who was told at a young age that she was too "muscular" to be a ballerina she is also Black. We dont speak about several people I see in society making a change and a difference in the communities thru art, music, dance,literary, journalism or many other areas. I would like to acknowledge them today.

    ReDo: The Healing Power of Sound! Part 2

    in Health

    There were Technical difficulties with the show for an hour ago. so let's do over.


    How Does Sound Heal? How does this work? How does sound make for the mending of bones, the softening and soothing of broken hearts, the nearly instant increase in auto-immunity?


    According to some experts, it is the vibration itself. The simplest example of this principle is the use of sonic vibrations (like what is used in the generation of sonograms) to heal soft-tissue injuries. This is now a common occurrence in vocational rehabilitation.


    Frequency healing, as it is called, has been studied intensely and broken down Hz by Hz. Every frequency “range” has a specific, non-random effect. For instance, 1.0 Hz impacts the pituitary, stimulating the production of growth hormones, while 111 Hz will increase beta endorphins and stimulate cell regeneration.


    For some people, music (whether that is the strain of a violin or the crash of the ocean’s waves) is as vital and necessary as breathing. 1 woman’s chronic nausea from cancer treatment was only alleviated when she listened to classical music.


    Yet another client who recently lost her son claims she can only get through her day by playing old records of Peter Pan, which she used to play for him.


    We feel music in our hearts just as we hear words in our cells: Who hasn’t felt the electricity of driving down the road at a normal clip only to find himself cruising at 85 mph when the Allman Brothers came on the radio or felt hopeful and young when she heard the words to an old song that reminded her of that perfect summer and her first boyfriend?


    We all seem to instinctively know and respect their impacts on us. We know it in our bones, in the beating of our hearts, and in the tapping of our feet. And if the research is correct, we know it far before we even have the words to say so.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Kerensa Gray!

    in Music

    It's almost difficult to write about someone who is your friend - who you have seen grow and flourish over the course of several years.  Kerensa Gray is that and a mink coat :)  She first came to visit yours truly when we were face-to-face at my former radio station.  She had to make the trek from her cozy house in Pennsylvania to unknown territory in Maryland.  But she went the distance the way she does ALL things: fearlessly.


    As a middle school student, Kerensa showed a great deal of promise via the violin.  So much so that she played in the Frostburg State University Orchestra during those tender years.  Through the course of playing so much music and so often, she discovered that she had a voice.  And there was no stopping her motivation to become the best that she could be.  With discipline and an unbelievable array of gigs during the time that I've known her, Kerensa has truly made a name for herself. We've covered two albums during previous visits - the last was "Bliss" (and it was!).  This time, we'll focus on her new "Take Me In."  She covers beloved standards in the way that she knows how: with the knowledge and love of Jazz, with the innate Blues and Gospel that she feels - and with Folk and Smoke combined.  You'll hear and you'll KNOW.


    Kerensa was the last winner of the annual Billie Holiday Vocal Competition that was an important reason why attendees visited Artscape in Baltimore.  They let that event go, sadly - but Kerensa is still known for that remarkable honor.  It has paved the way for lovely musical associations with some of the greats in the business.  But, to really get a feel for what she can do, see her when she headlines.  Especially in intimate gatherings when she can let her hair down and sink her teeth INTO a song.  That's the Kerensa I know!   Join us at ONE on 1/12!
