Jazz of 2014 featuring Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood


2014 has been a great year for jazz, and on this Tuesday’s edition of That Righteous Jive we’ll be listening to some of my favorite trios and quartets. I'll be featuring Medeski Martin & Wood, joined by long time collaborator guitarist John Scofield, and their new album Juice.

"The blueprint for Juice was found in a compilation of African-derived music put together by drummer Billy Martin and shared among the ensemble. “We all love music from Brazil, the Caribbean, and Latin America, and it has always been intertwined with jazz,” explains Medeski. “We got together and started exploring that connection in our own way.”" 

U.S. Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont. Senator Sanders is considering running for President in 2016. The interview will be followed with a discussion with Dennis Raimondi and James Moore.

Eli Lieb is singer song writer and an internet sensation. He has over 24 million visits to his postings on youtube. Eli recently was a featured performer at the 2014 GLADD AWARDS in San Francisco. 

Esther Ehrlich, Author of NestWhy do people's stories matter? Because they help us discover what it means to be human. They help us explore how to make good choices about how to live, too. So says oral historian and author Esther Ehrlich. Her recently released historical novel NEST is receiving well-deserved and widespread critical acclaim. Nest explores serious issues (family dysfunction, physical disability, depression, grief, and loss). Still, joy leaps off its pages, and the healing power of nature, friendship and art is stressed. For a glimpse into the creative journey of a gifted writer, tune in to The Studio with Cheryl and Esther Ehrlich this week.

Movies from a Conscious Perspective - with Brent Marchant

From "Life is what you make it" to "You create your own reality" to "The Law of attraction," the message has been around for awhile.  But what does it really mean? How about some examples?  How can you make this principle work for you?

Consciously Created Cinema

We humans love a good story - and it's a good way to teach (and learn).  In the modern age, filmmakers are our tribal story-tellers, so what better way to illustrate this important lesson than through film?

This week, Writers' Voices welcomes Brent Marchant back to the air, to talk about  "Consciously Created Cinema:  The Movie Lovers' Guide to the Law of Attraction."

Brent MarchantIn his latest book, which picks up where "Get the Picture: Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies" left off, Marchant illustrates specific elements of the law of attraction by references to, and interpretation of, popular films.  Tune in to hear some great examples!

Chris ChristieAuthor Lou Manzo Exposes Christie's Naked Ambition

In his searing tell-all, Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Louis Manzo recounts an extraordinary tale of political ruthlessness, corruption, and greed while also telling the story of how he was caught in the center of one of the most egregious political scandals in modern-day history: the Bid Rig III sting operation, masterminded by the then United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey and soon-to-be Governor Chris Christie.

Manzo shows us how the blind ambitions of Christie and his staff centered on capturing a Paul Fauersogovernorship and the patronage jobs that accompany it, then parlaying that office into a shot at the presidency. Meticulous in backing things up with objective legal documentation, Manzo makes a convincing and disconcerting case for the governor as an unbridled and sinister political figure who made the most of a seriously flawed Department of Justice and overall dysfunctional judicial system to feed his megalomania and desire for power.

Paul Fauerso
talks about his career in music, experiences with Maharish Mahesh Yogi, and much more. We'll play his new jazzy version of "Spoonful". His band the Loading Zone performed in the Bay area back in the 60s, best known for supporting some of the biggest acts of the period including Cream, The Who, The Byrds, Big Brother & the Holding Company, Grateful Dead, Country Joe & The Fish, Howlin' Wolf, Sam & Dave, Chuck Berry and Buddy Miles.

He was in town to perform at the 25th anniversary of MSAE.

Welcome to another episode of INSIDE THE HEADLINES with Newsvandal JP Sottile and James Moore.

This week's three tiers include 'never remember', the economy doesn't suck, it just sucks for you', and 'you gotta have faith to save faith'.

Thirteen years into the global war on terror and it appears we all feel less safe now. Should we forget or remember what we've done or not done in the ensuing years? Well, we'll take you on a guided tour of that very issue.

Fall is here (finally!)...




And I can't think of a better time to feature one of the most melodious and enduring voices on the planet:  

James Taylor


With an almost uncanny ability to produce a continuous stream of enchanting folk-rock classics, this terrific artist will, I'm sure, either become a new favorite or feel like an old friend.
