Call in to speak with the host
Today Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian celebrates July 4th by welcoming Grammy, Latin Grammy and Emmy award winning pianist and composer Michel Camilo to talk about his new CD What's Up? Michel is wrapped in a human being of boundless enthusiasm, musical passion, and love of life. In addition, we’ll chat with Dr. Pam Popper, to talk about the nutritional value and benefits of seasonal stone fruit, which we can find soon in farm markets around the country! Michel Camilo bridges the genres of Jazz, Classical, Popular and World music. He is a pianist with a brilliant technique and a composer who flavors his tunes with the spice of Caribbean rhythms and jazz harmonies. To see him perform live is to witness the energy of a tropical storm being unleashed on 88 keys. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fernando Trueba, who featured Camilo in his documentary film Calle 54, says: "Michel Camilo is one of the top all-around musicians. Whether it's jazz, classical, Latin American music or film music, Michel is in his element. Every time I see him play, I feel like I'm witnessing a miracle." Dr. Pam Popper is a naturopath, an internationally recognized expert on nutrition and health and she is the Founder and Executive Director of The Wellness Forum. Dr. Popper is the author of several books; including Solving America’s Healthcare Crisis and Food Over Medicine.
It's good to talk.
