In His Room: Jazz Smiles on Brian Wilson
Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: June 21, 2013
Top left: 1966, Brian Wilson producing Pet Sounds; top right: bassist Carol Kaye (seated, foreground) and musicians during Pet Sounds sessions; above: Brian Wilson today

     I didn’t plan my June 16 show to coincide with Father’s Day — it was a coincidence, and, to be honest, a somewhat uncomfortable and cruelly ironic one. I’d been working for weeks on a jazz tribute to a great songwriter, Brian Wilson, founder and creative font of the Beach Boys, who definitely was not lucky in the daddy department. I wanted it to air as close as possible to Brian’s 71st birthday on Thursday, June 20. When my wife reminded me of that June 16 was Father’s Day, I thought, “Uh-oh.”

Just wanted to let everyone know that One World under my hosting turns 2 today so I threw together a commemorative two-part mix to showcase a lot of favorites and what not. It's been a very crazy fun time and I'm glad to be able to share music from around this planet we call home every Wednesday night. As for the mix itself, I left out a lot of favorites and will upload the second part of the mix very soon. Mad love and thanks to everyone who's locked in over these past two years far and wide!

    Krupa versus Bernstein: The Jazz-Classical Throwdown
    Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: May 26, 2013

     

         Gene Krupa and Leonard Bernstein

         As a kid with eclectic tastes growing up in a musical family, I never thought about one genre being better or more important than another, or that musical genres needed to remain segregated, that merging them amounted to sacrilege. After playing percussion in youth orchestras, drums in various rock and soul bands, and piano in a jazz trio, I was in my mid-20s before I finally assembled a band that could play the smorgasbord of music I’d been composing since age 10.

    UPDATE: Presenting the NEW...
    Want a Healthy Heart? Listen to This.
    Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: May 23, 2013

    The University of Maryland Medical Center researchers had study participants choose music that  made them feel good and brought them a healthy heart sense of joy.  It turned out that listening to their selections actually  caused tissue in the inner lining of blood vessels to dilate (or expand) in order to increase blood flow. Specifically, the diameter of blood vessels grew by 26 percent when a person listened to happy music.

    I’m not suggesting that you replace exercise with music to improve your heart health, but it’s still a cool factoid.  Couple that with my main man, Daniel Levitin’s research that shows that music can lift your spirits, good music is obviously good “medicine.”  

     

    And you know what else is good for your circulation? Laughter!  What?  Yeah, all those jokes at the gym actually improve my workout.laughing heart

     

    “We had previously demonstrated that positive emotions, such as laughter, were good for vascular health. So, a logical question was whether other emotions, such as those evoked by music, have a similar effect,” says principal investigator Michael Miller, M.D., director of preventive cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center and associate professor of medicine at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine.

    All this hard research simply underscores the real value to a business in aligning itself with an All-Music radio station like Jazz 88.3. You get the 'Halo Effect’ of listeners patronizing your business because they appreciate your company helping us do what we do, coupled with the fact that you are actually encouraging your customers’ cardiovascular health!  Wow, what a tremendous public service your business is doing.  

     Oh, by the way, listening to anxiety-triggering music caused the diameter of the subject's blood vessels to decrease by 6 percent. So be careful what you listen to.  

    The Low Down
    Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: May 17, 2013

         Perhaps I started feeling empathy for bass players many years ago when I realized that low-noters were replacing drummers in the jokes that musicians like to tell. As a drummer, I was relieved when an old joke such as, "How do you know when a stage is perfectly level? — the drummer is drooling from both corners of his mouth," was changed to make bass players the objects of ridicule. But it also occurred to me that it was a positive development for people to be thinking about bassists at all.

    Deja Entendu: The Facts About Contrafacts
    Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: May 10, 2013
    The title and theme of my show on Sunday, May 12, 2013 (3-5 p.m. PDT) is “Deja Entendu”. You know that “deja vu” (French for “already seen”) is that strange feeling that you’ve experienced something in the exactly the same way before. “Deja Entendu” is the sense that you’ve heard something before. The theme was inspired by an email I received in February from Erie, Pennsylvania-based jazz guitarist and music store proprietor Jim Lynch. He was listening to the streaming version of my show when I aired pianist Benny Green’s tune, “Benny's Crib”. Until I identified the artist and the track, Jim assumed that he was listening to an interesting arrangement of the Jimmy Giuffre composition, “Four Brothers”.

    Richie Havens, R.I.P.
    Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: May 2, 2013
    Like many people, and perhaps a little more than most, I was deeply saddened to hear of Richie Havens’ passing on Monday, April 22. I can remember when 72 seemed ancient, but today when someone, especially someone of note, passes away at that age it seems premature. I knew that Richie had been fighting health problems because several years ago I contacted him to see if he wanted to participate in a theatrical concert (Primal Twang) I was co-producing here in San Diego. He wasn’t feeling well at the time, and it didn’t work out. I didn’t speak with him again.

    Bonnie Wright Interview on Progressive Wednesdays
    Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Chad Fox , Music Director / HostPosted on: March 28, 2013

    From the days of her Spruce Street Forum to the current Fresh Sound series, concert promoter, record label Exec., and San Diegan Bonnie Wright has a passion for exploring and sharing experimental & avant-garde music with her community. Bonnie plays a vital part with keeping the creative-music flame burning here in San Diego by bringing in cutting-edge artists from around the world. Her Fresh Sound series wraps up this month with a performance from the Rez Abbasi Trio, the #2 Rising Star Guitarist winner in a recent Down Beat magazine poll.

    I sat down for a Progressive Nights interview with Bonnie where we talked about her passion for music, the local music scene, the upcoming Fresh Sound performance this weekend, and the great line-up of some upcoming concerts too. Enjoy.



    ARE WE RADIO?
    Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: March 26, 2013

    People often refer to Jazz 88.3 as a “radio station.”  Forty years ago, when we started playing Jazz and Blues, that was a perfect description of the services we provided to the community.  Today, however, we are much more than an entertainment-service-formerly-known-as-a-radio-station.

     Sure, we present endlessly varied, interesting music al statements of time, space and being, seen through the lens of the American experience to San Diego and Southern California via our traditional terrestrial broadcast.  But we also offer the same insight to listeners across the country and around the world via our online stream, and our mobile apps.  And it doesn’t stop there.  (I know I’m preaching to the choir, but there’s a reason for this.)

     We present 14 live concerts in the acoustically perfect Lyman Saville Theatre at San Diego City College.  We host eleven Happy Hours a year where people gather to enjoy one another’s company accompanied by terrific local artists’ performances, as well as roof-top gatherings during the summer at the Westgate, and other incidental events around the county. 

    Besides all this, we support the interest of new people in Jazz and the Blues, and by “new” I mean newly hatched humans.  Kids, of all ages.  That is the purpose of this long intro. We have four on-going, long term music education programs that connect this music to children today.  And connect it does.  You know the toe-tapping, mood changing power of these sounds.  The syncopations, melodies and improvisations that never grow old, and always bring a smile.  We believe that kids need to know that there are musical alternatives to the thumping bass line or the electronically enhanced vocal.  And that those alternatives can be very spiritually satisfying.  (Okay, so the kids don’t realize that it’s emotional satisfaction that they crave, but we can talk about it when they’re not here.)

     All this being said, I present a letter we received in response to our sponsorship of Jazz: An American Art Form, for Title I schools.  JAAAF is a 45-minute enrichment program, based on the spontaneous evolution of this music, presented by four of San Diego’s most outstanding musicians.  Title I schools rarely have the budget for enrichment programs, so, working with our private donors, we have arranged funding for these presentations for more than 18,000 area students in the past 3 years.  Why bother?  What’s the big deal?  The note from a Title I parent below tells you.

    Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: March 10, 2013
    Michael Gallant and his Trio have a new disc out "Completely" and he's in Southern California doing some business, so he will be dropping by Jazz 88 studio and hanging with us LIVE in Hour 1 of The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, March 11, 2013, starting around 6:40 PM PT! Listen in at 88.3 FM San Diego or click the LISTEN LIVE button to listen online or, better yet, download the iPhone/iPad App or the Android App and listen now and later!


    • Brent Black @CriticalJazz on "Completely": "...Michael Gallant is helping forge a new sound for what has become a tired, predictable and all be it boring vibe of the sterile jazz standard that makes one long to hear those two most important words "last call." "...Completely would make my desert island list of discs to take if faced with the burden of limited space. This my friends is the future of jazz. Fresh, invigorating, progressive - there are simply not enough positive adjectives to list here. "
    Jason Robinson Interview on Progressive Wednesdays
    Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Chad Fox , Music Director / HostPosted on: March 4, 2013

    I was fortunate enough to sit down for a Progressive Nights interview with one of the most well respected bandleaders in jazz today: saxophonist and former San Diegan Jason Robinson. Jason lent a helping-hand for creative musicians, particularly here in San Diego. He provided the opportunity to have their music heard on the artist-run independent record label he founded in the 90’s called Circumvention Music. He now has a new album out titled Tiresian Symmetry, and since his move from San Diego, he’s been tearing up the east coast jazz scene with a sound steeped in free-jazz, avant-garde, acoustical, electronic, experimental and improvisation. There was way too much to cover in the time we had together, but basically: Jason is a really busy man these days! Not only is he a musician and composer managing multiple groups, but Jason is also an Assistant Professor of Music at Amherst College. Nonetheless, we covered a good bit of ground, so sit back and enjoy.

    • Dr. Hafez Modirzadeh will be stopping by in Hour 1 for a chat about his music, including his latest release "Post-Chromodal Out!", before heading to his rare local appearance with bass guru Mark Dresser and others tonight at Sufi
      • JazzTimes: "With no less than Vijay Iyer at the keyboard, the album delivers great returns on each musical risk Modirzadeh takes."
      • Spin: "Iranian-American saxophonist retunes Vijay Iyer's piano for cross-cultural jazz experiment." 8 out of 10 rating
      • Dusted: "The effect of Post-Chromodal Out! is like having your head buffeted by a barrage of head-scrambling information, all of it resisting conventional listening, and most emphatically not announcing itself as anything close to conventional jazz-plus-exotica. It’s a powerful statement from a composer, instrumentalist, and band that deserve your time and acclaim."
    • 2013-03-04 Adds To The Jazz 88 Music Library: The Jazz 88 Music Library gets a varied set of New Jazz Music in for the week of March 4, 2013, including Latin (Aguanko), vocals (New York Voices with the WDR Big Band, Jan Shapiro, and even "Luke Duke" aka Tom Wopat), guitar (John Stein, Dave Haskell), the latest from Clint's little boy Kyle Eastwood and Scott Hamilton, and more

    Interview with ZZK Records' Label Head El G aka Grant C. Dull
    Blog Name: One WorldAuthor: Marcus Rosario Posted on: January 28, 2013

    Last week on One World, I aired a special interview with Argentine-based ZZK Records label head El G aka Grant C. Dull. He'd been playing gigs in SF and LA and we were lucky enough to have him come through the Jazz 88.3 studios for a chat. The short 10 minute interviewed covered a little bit of everything regarding ZZK, their sound and what's to come in 2013 for them. It was definitely a cool interview! ZZK was kind enough to post the interview on their Soundcloud. (By the way: They posted the interview using my DJ alias!)

    There's been A TON of amazing music that's come out this past year from all over the world and I've been fortunate enough to share as much I could of it on One World. As 2012 comes to a close, I wanted to round out some of my favorite releases that I played a lot of as a result. This is in no particular order!

    The Vote is IN!
    Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: December 11, 2012
    Jazz is Presidential!  Research about the neuro functionality of the brain as it absorbs, understands and relates to music is exploding.  Technology is now able to identify the exact areas of the brain where these processes take place, and we understand that music ignites at least seven different areas of the brain.  A preeminent scientist in this field is Daniel Levitin, the author of This is Your Brain on Music.   He is a former musician/producer/turned neuroscientist, so he's got a 360-degree point of view about music in general.  And his passion is clear in all his work.

    To the Heart of It - Remembering Dave Brubeck
    Blog Name: The Jazz Ride HomeAuthor: Claudia Russell , Program DirectorPosted on: December 5, 2012

    It seems fitting to me Dave Brubeck died on the way to his cardiologist, on his way to have that great heart of his checked out. It was that great heart that hit its final downbeat today, the day before Dave's 92nd birthday. As the news continues to sink in and I continue think about the incredible person that was Dave Brubeck, I keep going back to that heart. His powerful heart that beat for nearly 92 solid years after his parents welcomed him in Concord, California.

    Joe Marillo Interview on Offramp with T. Michael Crowell
    Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 19, 2012

    Joe Marillo has been a force in the San Diego jazz scene since the mid-1970s when he began bringing top-name jazz musicians to Mission Beach's Catamaran Hotel. He's a fine tenor sax player in his own right and, as a teacher, Joe has helped many an aspiring jazz player learn the rudiments of the music. Now 80, Joe's brings a lot of things to the table, but his most important asset is the size of his heart. It's huge. Joe Marillo recently sat down with Offramp's host T. Michael Crowell to talk about his life in music.

    It’s always been about the radio for me.
    —Ron Dhanifu

    “I feel like I was born to do this,” says Ron Dhanifu. Dhanifu mans the afternoon slot, from 1-4pm, on KSDS, the local jazz station. When he says he was born to be a disk jockey, he speaks from experience. He’s spent 40 years in radio, 30 of them (in two installments) at KSDS.

    Red Bull - Marketing Genius??
    Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: November 8, 2012

    So, am I the only one who didn't pay much attention to the stunt when the guy broke the sound barrier?  I guess 8 million people watched it live, but when I saw the story on the web, I thought, "Ho hum."  It's not that it wasn't a feat, and must have been incredibly frightening and cool at the same time, but I was hardly overwhelmed with excitement.  And, here's the kicker, I didn't even read the writing all over the guy's suit.  There.  I said it.  I didn't even notice it.  Sponosors' logos on sportswear have become ubiquitous.  Like graffiti, they make people's eyes glaze over.  

    And yet, marketing people are all abuzz about the marketing genius of Red Bull Stratos further blurring the lines of differentiation between advertising, cause marketing and blatant self-promotion. 

    Was this a brilliant was to sell more product?  Probably.  As a non-user of energy drinks in general, my loss is no big deal to them.  Besides, I'm hardly in the demo.  

    But from another point of view, I can't think of much that would make me less likely to ever consider the purchase of a Red Bull can.  I find this stunt environmentally offensive.  The author of the post says, "The beauty of Red Bull Stratos is that it's not just a sensational stunt, but a business move that could translate into estimated sales of tens of millions of dollars, according to Ben Sturner, founder and CEO of Leverage Agency, a New York City-based sports, entertainment and media marketing company."  Ick.

    The author goes on to brag about the excellence of the Red Bull Air Race.  Again, Ick.  Why?  

    The Air Race is loud, intrusive and annoying.  And it wastes a ton of fossil fuel!  Sorry, I just can't get behind the "genius" of a company that pollutes the air all in the pursuit of tens of millions of dollars.  Yes, I think free enterprise is a good thing.  And no, I don't think that profit is inherently bad. I just think that being environmentally respectful is everyone's responsibility.  I also resent the subliminally intended advertising.  That's no good for anybody.
