Have mercy, this powerful woman from Chilliwack, BC, is on fire! Bria Skonberg is her name - with ancient Swedish heritage and Dixieland in her veins. Trumpeter, Vocalist, Composer, Bandleader and benevolent contributer to the community. Ten percent of the proceeds from her 2012 release, "So Is the Day", has benefitted The Jazz Foundation of America.
So - with that knowledge - it comes as no surprise that good things are coming Bria's way. When one GIVES like that, they usually do :) This award-winning artist knew early in life that she wanted to play the trumpet. There she was, her first professional gig at 16, singing and blowing that horn - and blowing the audience AWAY! She hasn't looked back since then - having played at countless Jazz festivals around the world, both as bandleader and guest In 2010, Bria moved to New York City and there was an instantaneous connection. She had headlined at Birdland, Cafe Carlye, Dizzy's and The Iridium.
Those that she has met in her fascinating journey have been significant. Wycliffe Gordon has been one of those with whom Bria has felt kinship - and they have been involved in each other's projects. The Jazz Journalists' Association and Downbeat Magazine Critics' Poll have taken notice of the incredible creativity of this gifted musician - and have publicly acknowledged their admiration. Bria is the recipient of The New York Bistro Award for "Outstanding Jazz Artist." Once you hear her previous effort and her latest CD, "Into Your Own", you'll HEAR why. Combining her love of classic Jazz with World percussion, Soul and electronic effects, Bria delves into a different zone than anyone you'll hear. SO different that she had actually staged an event combining Jazz and Stand-up :)
Our VERY cool guest joins us on 6/12 at two p.m.
Toni Byrd was born in Memphis, TN, and moved to Atlanta, GA, in 2000. She established herself as one of Atlanta’s unforgettable and versatile vocal artists. Nominated by Black Women in Jazz for Best Black Female Jazz Singer and for Best Black Jazz Record for "Autumn in New York", this singer/songwriter draws fans locally and worldwide with her smooth vocals. In 2011, Byrd was cast in the leading role in Ida Belle, and in the movie, Lawless, starring, Shia LaBeouf. Byrd has performed with the Peachtree Jazz Edition big band, since 2003. She's performed at Atlanta’s most coveted venues, including the Fox Theater and Rialto Theater. Byrd opened for Kenny G, Take 6, Wycliffe Gordon, and Gladys Knight and performed at after parties for Norman Brown, Eric Darius, Pieces of a Dream, Richard Elliot, George Benson, and Boney James.

Join Danny Tisdale and Wycliffe Gordon as they discuss his new work commissioned by the Jazz Mobile Within In Our Gates Oscar Micheaux and his new LP on Louis Armstrong.
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!
Those who have seen posts on Facebook regarding female Jazz instrumentalists know how heartfelt this host is about them. When artistry is found of this magnitude, it's cause for celebration :) That's why it's such an honorable pleasure to have Iris Ornig as a guest!
Bassist of rare depth, composer, arranger, teacher, and bandleader, Iris has a different perspective on playing. Because her journey in her young life has been so vast. Born in Germany, she studied Jazz and Pop music in Switzerland - then both Music and Drama in London. In 2003, she traveled across the pond to New York City, where seasoned vets moved aside to watch/hear in awe.
Honing skills in leading a band, Iris gained momentum in her various other gifts - ones which complemented her utterly mesmerizing skill with the bass. He work with buzzworthy artists tellls the story: Gretchen Parlato, Sachal Vasandani, Ambrose Akinmusire, Wycliffe Gordon...and the critics have fallen over themselves to describe her music: "Creative", "Fresh", "Elegant", "Profoundly Harmonic", and "Spiritual Sensibility" are a few words that are in print.
In 2009, Iris broke "New Ground" - that's the name of her first CD. In 2012, we welcomed "No Restrictions." The company here is extraordinary: Helen Sung, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mike Rodriguez and Marcus Gilmore.
If you are blessed to be in the Big Apple, you've heard Iris play in the noteworthy clubs around town. If you've seen her at the various international festivals that feature Jazz, that's another kind of natural high entirely :)
Get to know this multiple talent when Iris Ornig joins us on "Hybrid Jazz" in the second hour - on 2/20/2014. It will be a feast for your ears!

B.L.I.F. Network presents Firm Foundation with our host Evangelist Owen Bruce. Tonight we feature our special guest author Adrian Isaacs. Adrian has been researching end-time Bible prophecy for over 15 years and is the author of The Kingdom of the Antichrist: Counterfeit Messiah, the Holy Grail, and the Coming Global Monarchy. He oversees the End-Time Bible Prophecy content of the Covenant Remnant Ministries website (http://cr-ministries.com/prophecy/). He is also currently working towards his Doctor of Theology degree at Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. Adrian’s desire is to see a passionate love for Christ and His return re-awakened in the body of Christ, and for this love to then motivate the Church to seek God and His kingdom first, and above all else. Adrian believes strongly that end-time Bible prophecy is not simply to satisfy the curious, but is a powerful tool to both motivate the believer, and help others find Christ. Adrian himself became a believer through a Gospel message dealing with end-time Bible prophecy. Adrian lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife Tammy. Please tune in as we discuss what you need to know concerning the days in which we now live and how to respond to the things to come according to Bible prophecy.
"But don't be fooled! People will rebel against God. Then before the Lord returns, the wicked one who is doomed to be destroyed will appear." (2 Thessalonians 2:3, CEV)
Steve Estes has been senior pastor at Community Evangelical Free Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania, for over twenty-five years. His most significant life achievement was persuading college classmate Verna Stoltzfus to marry him in 1974. They now have eight children.
Steve’s books and other writings began with his longtime friendship with Joni Eareckson Tada. As teenagers, they grappled with why God allowed Joni’s paralysis in a swimming accident in the Chesapeake Bay. Steve left for college . . . they kept in touch . . . she liked the style of his letters. When her 1976 autobiography Joni spawned thousands of reader responses, she asked Steve to join her in crafting a follow-up. The result was A Step Further in 1978. Later, Wycliffe Bible Translators commissioned Steve to write the biography of former college friend Chet Bitterman, a Wycliffe linguist who was kidnapped and murdered by political terrorists in Colombia in 1981. Other books and articles followed.
Steve was educated at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, the American Institute of Holy Land Studies in Israel (now Jerusalem University College), and Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University). He is a board member of the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation and teaches a course on preaching at Westminster Seminary.
