How Did Your Mom Influence Your Love of Jazz and Music?
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: May 8, 2015
One of the best things I find out in the interviews I have the honor of doing on The New Jazz Thing or as part of Jazz Live San Diego, or just in talking with Jazz and music lovers I come across is the influence of their family and upbringing on what they love as their passion and/or do as their livelihood. And while having a talented Jazz Mom may give you a little step-up in following in her footsteps, there are many other ways that our parents, and Mom's in particular as we head toward Mother's Day 2015, have put us on the path toward the music we love and play and listen to day in and day out. My Mom, in particular, made sure that we listened to big string orchestrated music which I think directly led to my liking of both small ensembles with strings and to the complexity that can come with large ensemble Jazz music.

Top Jazz Artists of All Time presented by Napoli School of Music and Dance and San Diego's Jazz 88.3

The students at Napoli learn about a wide variety of topics in the jazz realm, including scales, reading, theory, repertoire, and improvisation. Our jazz music lessons take our students through the greats, including Joplin and Gershwin. In preparation for Jazz Appreciation Month, the students were asked who some of their favorite artists were, then the staff worked to put it all together into the first Jazz 88.3 Guest Blog Post...at least that I know of ;) Jazz 88 has taken the YouTube video's selected by Napoli as illustrating each of the artists repertoire and put them into a playlist on the Jazz 88.3 YouTube Channel (SUBSCRIBE!)

Jazz An American Art Form Swings Harder in San Diego Thanks To Ella Fitzgerald
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: April 24, 2015
San Diego’s Jazz 88.3 Jazz88.org has dedicated a gift from the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation to further the outreach of “Jazz An American Art Form” (JAAAF). JAAAF is a 45 minute presentation about the birth and development of Jazz and Blues, scaled for elementary and middle school students.  JAAAF was created by San Diegan and world-renowned bassist, Rob Thorsen and features a world-class lineup of San Diego musicians including Gilbert Castellanos trumpet, Bob Boss guitar, and Richard Sellers drums. Working with Young Audiences of San Diego, who schedules and places a variety of  enrichment programs for schools around the county, Jazz 88.3 underwrites a portion of the cost of JAAAF for Title I schools, schools that are often strapped financially.  

Jazz An American Art Form Swings Harder in San Diego Thanks To Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Fitzgerald and San Diego have long and deep ties, from her earliest appearances here in the late 1930’s at venues like the Mission Beach Ballroom and through her celebrated accompanists who lived here and still make San Diego home.  And to keep the birthday celebration swinging, San Diego’s Jazz 88.3 on-air hosts share their thoughts on "Lady Ella" and will be curating some of their favorites tunes featuring the “Queen of Jazz” for you all day Saturday, April 25, the 98th Birthday of “The First Lady of Jazz” and in the weeks ahead.

This Is Jazz 2015 Celebrates Womens History Month with Women In Jazz in Carlsbad
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: March 11, 2015
This is Jazz! 2015, a partnership between the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office and San Diego's Jazz 88.3, continues Saturday, March 14 at 4PM in Carlsbad City Library's Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium with a celebration of Women's History Month as San Diego's Queen of Boogie Woogie (and Jazz 88.3 weekend host) Sue Palmer and Jazz 88.3 host Janine Harty present "Women In Jazz". 


The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz says ""Women have participated on every instrument, in every style, and in every era of jazz history. Yet, with the notable exception of singers and a number of pianists, female jazz musicians have been continuously overlooked in the most prestigious areas of jazz practice, marketing, and documentation." Sue and Janine attempt to set the record straight with a program illustrating, through both music and words, the contribution of women in Jazz from pre-1920's through today.

    San Diego's Chase Morrin Wins Jazz Education Network 2015 Student Composition Showcase Award
    Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: January 16, 2015
    San Diego's Chase Morrin was awarded the Jazz Education Network's (JEN) 2015 Student Composition Showcase winner at JEN's January 7-10, 2015 conference at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. His composition "Three Brahmin" was one of 4 works chosen by a panel of 4 adjudicators from 24 submissions and was performed at the conference by the world-renowed, Washington D.C.-based Alan Blaylock Orchestra. Chase is no newcomer to awards, especially since he had a small combo composition win at the 2012 JEN conference! The JEN Student Composition Showcase, designed to spotlight young jazz composers, gives students an opportunity to have an original composition recognized and performed at the International level. The winners of the 2015 competition also had the newly added benefit of a private mentoring session with a leader in the Jazz field. Chase's reaction to the award, 

    "This year was especially exciting and different than the 2012 JEN, first, because my big band chart won apposed to a small combo piece. This meant Alan's Orchestra played my piece which was a real privilege. Second, this year they paired the composers with mentors to chat about music, the future, etc. I was paired with Ellen Rowe. She was incredibly kind and gave me some great advice. I really enjoyed talking with her. "

    Before heading back to continue his studies at Harvard, Chase will be performing at Dizzy's San Diego TONIGHT, Friday, 1/16 at 8pm with the trio he performed with during a separate session at the JEN conference, including Justin Grinnell bass and Charlie Weller drums. 

    Here is the performance of Chase's winning piece "Three Brahmin" by the Alan Blaylock Orchestra,

    Morning Jazz Host Gary Beck Is Back Where He Started
    Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: November 4, 2014
    Jazz 88.3 is sooo proud of the on-air hosts that bring Jazz to Life for us all each day by hand-picking the Jazz we hear and providing it to us with their added  thoughts, feelings, and experiences that have come from many years in the music. Gary Beck is one those hosts, bringing you Morning Jazz each weekday from 9AM to Noon PT. Gary is celebrating his 40th year with Jazz 88 and San Diego City College and we couldn't be prouder and happier for him!


    Gary was recently featured in the San Diego Reader article "Back Where I Started" by Dave Good, and sums up his approach and outlook on Jazz,

    "...I love the music. I like the jazz classics, but I also like what’s going on now musically. The standards have already been done, and they’ve been done by the best. Now, I look for the singers that are doing something different. And musicians,” he says, “that aren’t bored and that still play with the same intensity as they did when I was 18.”

    You can tell the special feel that Gary has for Jazz Singers in this June 2013 interview with Roberta Donnay (MP3).

    And Gary appreciates the recognition from the Reader article: "It's nice to be thought of after all these years, I owe it to the Music"

    You can send Gary your well wishes and thoughts in the Comments below or via our Jazz 88 Facebook and Twitter
