    Ep #67 - Brazilliance with Derrik Jordan

    Ep #67 - Brazilliance with Derrik Jordan

    Ep #67 - Brazilliance with Derrik Jordan. This episode features six of my original Brazlian inspired sambas and bossa novas from my double CD Brazilliance. Written over 30 years, I consider these songs to be some of my best work. I am singing along with Alexandra Colmant and Lisa Sokolov. I am also joined on these six songs by Erik Lawrence, Bob Stabach, Eugene Uman and Johnny Yuma. This episode is dedicated to my old friend Brian Hobbs who is the co-lyricist on the song Fearlessly.

    Ep #66 Arcomusical, berimbau and vocal sextet

    Ep #66 with Arcomusical, berimbau and vocal sextet. What's a berimbau? A musical bow. Hence the name of this truly unique and innovative group from Illinois who use this simple ancient African and Brazilian instrument in a whole new way. They fine tune the single string on the bow to different pitches and together are able to create some beautiful chords and textures. Then they add their voices. You have to hear it to believe it.

I am so impressed by the World Fusion Show and the love and care that producer Derrick Jordan puts into his projects. I am fascinated to hear the way that the musicians he interviews evolved to harness their passions. The idea of using world fusion as the glue that connects each of the shows with each other to form a series makes a lot of sense. The premise of the series give us a more comprehensive understanding of how world fusion influences the cutting edge of numerous musical styles. Bravo!
