Here's the scoop: June 21st is going to be a REALLY exciting day on "Hybrid Jazz!" We might have FOUR guests on the show! But here's who we know for SURE: Mike Pope joins us first - and I don't know if we can possibly fit his news in the space of an hour - it's like THAT. He JUST enjoyed a fabulous home concert with three musicians that are considered world-class - as is HE - and two of those artists might be visiting on Tuesday's show!
Mike has been extremely successful in his career - he has toured with Chick Corea, David Sanborn, Al DiMeola and more - and his own work has been received with the utmost respect. He visited us two years ago when "Cold Truth, Warm Heart" arrived. Geoffrey Keezer was on that project. And, word is, they really LIKE working together. More about THAT when Mike spills the beans - if he doesn't readily, we'll twist his arm ;)
Sari Kessler is a different story entirely. WHOA! A clinical psychologist, she left her beautiful career behind to pursue music full-time. She had always been a musical being - songwriting and arranging being a strength - but she revered the mystery and art of JAZZ. The beloved Kate McGarry inspired and directed her path. With a careful nod to the past and with the fresh vocalization that an enlightened woman can bring, "Do Right" was released last month. An amazing Lady, this Sari! An avid runner, she is no stranger to marathons. And no stranger, either, to working with some of the best. Legends who recognize her shared passion and unique talent.
This three-hour show will feature beautifully artistic people who you will truly appreciate. Get ready to be beguiled :-D AND possibly surprised if two more guests can come aboard in the third hour!
