September has already proven to be QUITE different than we've previously experienced on "Hybrid Jazz!" Multiple guests, time changes and even DAY changes. But we MUST to accommodate our guests - and it's exciting to ponder - because this truly means a surge of musical activity! New CDS, gigs to share and clubs popping with the sound of creative artists.
One of THOSE in the Uber Creative category is the fabulously charismatic violinist, Chelsey Green. Born in Houston, Chelsey was immersed in the Jazz and Funk of her family - lots of musicianship there. So how is it the similarly inclined music lover gravitated to violin at age FIVE?! And steered toward an education in Classical studies? Chelsey will answer that question when she joins us in the third hour of the show on 9/17. And SOON - we'll have to call her Doctor Green - since she is doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland in College Park :) We'll hear tracks from her forthcoming CD - you had best believe it! "The Green Room" drops on 9/23!
Gil Parris is a truly respected guitarist, based in New York, and known for his seamless transitions within his playing. He prides himself on the fusion of Jazz, Rock and Blues - sometimes Country - in his repertoire. He was attending Berklee in Boston many years ago - when he was tapped to tour in Europe with "Jesus Christ, Superstar." Gil has never looked back since then! Grammy nominated, Gil has recorded six solo albums and has worked with an extraordinary number of artists - Dr. John, Toni Braxton, and Blood, Sweat & Tears - to name a few. Paul Shaffer and Randy Brecker have raved about him, as most of The Big Apple does. And he'll play there on Thursday night at B.B. King's! Which is why we've airing "Hybrid Jazz" on Wednesday ;) Join us!
As always bringing you the newest and most soulful music and interviews, we are blessed to bring to you Maryland's own...Charisa the Violin Diva!!!! Gospel music, D.C.'s gogo, swing jazz and classical music blend together to create the sound this jazzful songstress brings to her audience's. The Prelude EP is just a taste of what Charisa can do. Just this year she's performed at Circle of Sisters and Black Girls Rock!!! Now, she sits down with the Q-man and T. Mitch. Tune in and enjoy!!!!!
Welcome to Youth Speak. Today my guest is Koa Halpern. He is 16 year old boy and resides in Denver Colorado. In addition to being interested in astronomy, rocketry, violin-playing and art, he has been interested in opposing fast-food companies from the age of eight. Fast Food Free, my longest-lasting and most rewarding project, is a nonprofit that has convinced thousands of people to stop eating at many major fast-food chains for two weeks. This project has led to me presenting at several major venues, including Natural Products Expo West and the largest gathering of health-food suppliers in the country. Even after eight years, Fast Food Free is still going strong.
Koa became interested in fast food after an exchange student asked where the nearest fast-food restaurant was immediately after she arrived in America. This made me wonder why fast food was so popular around the world. As I began to research fast food, I quickly realized that it was deeply unhealthy, both for the people who eat it and for the earth it comes from. Soon after, I started Fast Food Free, a nonprofit that became more successful than I had hoped. Soon, thousands of people had taken a two-week pledge to not eat at major fast-food restaurants. I have spent much of the last several years trying to “get the word out” about the adverse effects of fast food.
Hello Everyone! I'm Michelle Cornwell-Jordan one of your hosts! Jamie White my co-host is also joining me and we're so excited that today we have the chance to speak with the young and very talented music artist Mikhael Naylor of Poorly Made!
"Poorly Made": Mikhael Naylor was born on May 8th 1994 and raised in London England. He grew up in a predominantly rap and reggae environment. At the age of 15, he bought guitar hero with some friends and it was here that he realized his love for the instrument. Shortly after, Mikhael's mom bought him his first acoustic guitar for about $40 off Amazon. The first song he would play would be his own. He did not know how to play anything else.
Soon after, Mikhael met JP whilst fundraising. The two began to play music together just for fun. After getting some good reactions, they decided to become a band and go by the name “Poorly Made”. Diamonds are still rocks, we all just give it worth, hence the name, Poorly Made.
JP was born on March 16, 1992 in London England. After hearing the song, “Zigeunerweisen” by Pablo Sarasate he knew instantly that he wanted to play the violin. His mom bought him his first violin at the age of 6. When JP turned 10 he moved to San Antonio. While being influenced by his southern surroundings, he picked up the guitar and fell in love with music even more.
. It was not until 2014 that they came together to form the band now known as Poorly Made.
Amazing guitar skills, a voice built to move any crowd, and incredible violin abilities is what makes up Poorly Made. Mikhael and JP have a great amount of passion and are looking forward to their journey.

Giftted singer/songwriter Jenn Em Debuts New single 'JAILKEEPER' Featured on Singersroom.com
Singer + songwriter Jenn Em (née Jennifer Michelle Malsch), 22, was born and raised in the shadow of the US capitol, in small-town Chevy Chase, Maryland. The lone creative soul in a family of academic types, Jenn was playing the piano by age four, and had written her first song at age six. While still in single-digits she took up the violin, performing for audiences at the Kennedy Center, the White House, and at Baltimore Orioles baseball games – each instance in perfectly frilly dresses, accented by child-prodigy cuteness. She was never not singing. As a rebellious teenager she dropped the cute act, and expanded her musical repertoire by entering the world hip-hop and R&B as an around-the-way writer and hook-singer. In 2008 she released a remix of "Nike Boots" by fellow Washington, D.C. native Wale (feat. Lil' Wayne). The track exploded in the local market and provided the kick in the ass the then seventeen-year old Jenn needed to decide to pack up and hit the road for Los Angeles.
“I sang everywhere, for everyone – anyone!” she reflects about her early moments looking for a break on the West coast. Stumbling over roadblocks in life and love the way young, ambitious girls do, Jenn poured her pain into her music. Then, the way it randomly goes in the business of music, Jenn met JUB Records owner + executive Jubbie Chang – with whom she grew an electric creative synergy and began to develop her unique musical sound. Together they began working on her deeply personal and inspired project. Jenn Em is currently writing and recording her ice blue-eyed, raw-soul inspired debut EP with few fucks otherwise to give.

A very special show, with all the regular bits you like, Weird News and Hot Topics.
We will be interviewing musical guest guest Bradford Loomis and Beth Whitney.
When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no
idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album
The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records). That first night, they wrote
“My Beloved” in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to both,
that these songs merited a bold decision.
From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator, Aaron
Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure,
and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart
wrenching harmonious blend.
Their dramatic crescendos, minimalist intensity, through intricate harmonies have elicited
comparisons to The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison
Krauss’ Raising Sand.
With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s
gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both
