Pieces of a Dream Show at the Hobby Center in Houston

The Pieces of a Dream show at the Hobby Center in Houston was a HIT! They had not performed in Houston in a while but they packed the house and showed out. Seeing this group perform is always a huge treat The Jazz in MEE Magazine had the pleasure of experiencing their live show for the first time in Nov during the Jazz Legacy Gala in Virginia.

Our friends David Dyson, Rohn Lawrence,, Jelando Johnson,Anne Mundy, Vernon Daniels, Tony Watson and the band were incredible.

The Three talented Guitars Joe Carmouche, Mark Towns and Lawrence Overshown killed it and the crowd could not get enough of their musical gift.

THE JAZZ IN M.E.E. & SUMMER HORNS IN AUSTIN TX

SUMMER HORNS was an amazing top notch production.  Awesome job recreating the funk sax/horn sections of the 70s with the latest and greatest players.  We loved the diversity of the show, it was very entertaining. Summer Horns was pure energy and incredible horn riffs. One World Theater in Austin will never be the same. This Saxy team included  DAVE KOZ, MINDI ABAIR, RICHARD ELLIOT & GERALD ALBRIGHT. This was the hottest jazz show of the year!  They played tribute to some of the greatest horn sections of all time… EARTH, WIND & FIRE, CHICAGO, JAMES BROWN, STEVIE WONDER, DAVE BRUBECK, TOWER OF POWER AND SLY & THE FAMILY STONE. You have to catch this Summer Horns show in a city near you, its flaming HOT.  To view more pics: https://www.facebook.com/melody.warrenjazz/media_set?set=a.10204752576518068.1073741875.1346973708&type=3

In The Jazzy Limelight: Stephen Richard

The Jazz in M.E.E. had been hearing the buzz around town about this new, up and coming, artist that we needed to meet. After a chat with Mark Copeland, keyboard extraordinaire, his feedback compelled me and I could not resist….So I popped in one night unannounced at Café 4212 to take a listen to Stephen Richard.

I feel that  this analogy best describes my introduction to this jazzy star. He has been twinkling in the Houston sky for sometime, before we got a glimpse of him. We now have discovered Stephen;  his musical talents, his dedication, and his inclusive commitment  to jazz. and its longevity.  We  would now like to welcome him into our JAZZ IN M.E.E. family and introduce him to you in the Jazzy Limelight!

In The Jazzy Limelight: Elan Trotman

The JAZZ IN M.E.E. blends the extraordinary talent of Houston artists with incredible artists from around the world. We constantly search for unique and dynamic jazz artists. It was in the process of an intensive social networking talent search campaign I clicked upon a smile, a sax, a hat and a star quality that radiated from my screen. The photograph included 3 saxophonists, but this particular saxophonist was paramount! I had not heard one note from this artist but his presence demanded my attention and intrigued me enough to find out more. This shimmer of light was none other than Barbados born, world renowned, Berklee College of Music educated, Billboard Smooth Jazz chart topping Saxophonist – Elan Trotman! I’m aware it’s a mouthful, but he was just that astonishing.

In the Jazzy Limelight: Mike Burton

THE Jazz In M.E.E. is a huge fan of the incredible sax players the world has to offer, so we follow the careers of many. There is one in particular that we have followed through numerous cities and over 1500 tweets. We have experienced his excitement and felt his frustrations in Twitter land, but one thing is a given, when he takes the stage he lights it up. Mike Burton landed in Houston, Texas January 19th, 2012 with Tyler Perry’s stage play “The Have and the Have Not’s”. Burton has played keys and sax for the Tyler Perry stage productions “Madea Goes to Jail”, “What’s Done in the Dark”, “Why Did I Get Married”, “Laugh To Keep From Crying”, “Madea’s Big Happy Family”, and “A Madea Christmas”. Burton has appeared in the Perry films “Madea’s Big Happy Family”, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself”, “The Family That Preys” and “Madea’s Family Reunion”.
