SIGN UP to be entered into the drawing:
THE JAZZ IN M.E.E. headed to Austin, Tx to cover and experience Sax and the City featuring Marion Meadows, Jessy J, Paul Taylor w/ Joe McBride, Will Brock and Pamela Hart hosted by Women in Jazz at the Riverbend Center for the Arts http://womeninjazz.org/. This show was phenomenal and M.E.E. witnessed one of the best bands ever supporting Marion, Jessy and Paul.! They were all shining STARS! Jabari Kersey rocked the house of drums, Chip Sherin killed on bass, Joe McBride got down & dirty on keys, and Will Brock caused an up roar from the crowd with his triumphant solo on keys and engaging vocal performance “Come Together”. Pamela Hart’s performance was lyrically beautiful and melodically gracious.
M.E.E. spent some quality with Jessy J and she was delightful in personality and deadly on sax!. As you know, Texans love our southern hospitality and she fit right in with M.E.E. I loved talking with her, and to my surprise her mother hailed from Texas and her dad from Mexico and she joked about being Tex-Mex. She had a pleasant demeanor, was funny and stunning in person. She has an extreme passion for music and slings that sax like no other, all while being stylish and beautiful. Make sure you pick up her new CD Second Chances that was released on Sept 10th. We have a shopping date planned in Jan on Melrose. We have much more to share with you from our interview with Jessy… Stay tune.http://jessyj.com/
Our friend Marion Meadows was beyond amazing, he took charge of the show and proved that Sax and the City was a stellar top notch jazz show in the industry. We had not seen him since he graced the pages of our April magazine issue, so he did the honors of signing & posing . He is a class act, a true supporter of M.E.E. and a great sax player…He rocked the house musically and verbally with his great hosting talents.http://www.marionmeadows.com/
Our Paul Taylor experience was INCREDIBLE! He was BLAZIN HOT on stage. we had never seen him perform live before and M.E.E. was in LOVE. His personality was warm and inviting. If you don’t have his Prime Time CD, run out and get it. He played us a few tunes and we were hooked! His sound was addictive and we loved the vibe of his music. We had a Twitter experience over a year ago and he actually remembered it and that meant alot to M.E.E.https://www.facebook.com/paultaylorsax1
We also had a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee amongst us. Many of you have heard of Chip Shearin. If you haven’t, you’ve lived and felt his presence with his bass playing almost as a part of your every day lives. Be it Television theme songs, Movie scores, Jingles or countless tours with a who’s who in Music. If not those, surely from the iconic bass line for Sugar Hill Gangs, Rappers Delight! The bass line that American Band Stand’s, Dick Clark says …”you may not know the rap but they’re singing the bass line all over the world!”.. Rolling Stone Magazine’s #2 best rap song ever! And the first to chart on billboard and triggering a billion dollar industry. All resting neatly on this iconic bass line!
There has been a series of confirmations that have occurred in the last couple of weeks, a sort of crescendo effect leading up to this amazing message that says that we are on the right path. Keiko Matsui has vowed her support http://www.keikomatsui.com/ , Art Sherrod posted ” I’m proud of M.E.E. and you are creating a legacy” http://www.
Love You, Jazz, your message and your spirituality in energizing yourself into the music world of Jazz! You are Fantastic! Your synopsis of how you became more entrenched into your destiny of organizing, presenting, and discovering your divine purpose in life was gratifying. As a native from New Orleans, the birthplace of Jazz, I worried about the creators of Jazz going unnoticed and forgotten in a historical perspective by the people who love it most. I to believe that we have inner guides that help us navigate life’s obstacles and I feel that you have what it takes to help pass down the unique and marvelous music of Jazz in all it various forms.
The more I read of how each phase of growth transpired during your jazz exploration and how right it felt; the process, the people you connected with, the feedback, the cause to advocate for, the growth of the company and the decisions you make in research and development for organizational objectives, the more I felt at home in my desire to subscribe to The Jazz In M.E.E. Magazine. And as a Freelance Writer and Jazz enthusiast, I look forward to reading about the projects and events associated with the producers and artists in the Jazz arena. I would also be more than happy to lend my professional freelancing skills to help advocate and submit Jazz articles.
You seem to be very much at home living your passion and fulfilling your new found dreams, and as Rick Warren would say leading a purpose driven life embracing M.E.E.
