Alan talks about learning to play music by ear in church and starting a music school in his brother's basement after recognizing a need in his community. He also explains the “number system” and gives some practical suggestions for how to implement it in your worship team.

We had the pleasure of interviewing José James over Zoom video! Out now, the jazz voice of the hip hop generation José James (Rainbow Blonde Records) releases his first ever Christmas album Merry Christmas from José James. In addition to the album release, José also premieres the official performance video for the original track "Christmas in New York" today. The contemporary album celebrates the holiday season while honoring classic jazz and pop records of the 1950s. Combining the classic jazz-crooner elegance of Frank Sinatra and Nat “King” Cole with the earthy sophistication of soul legends Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, the ten track Merry Christmas from José James takes listeners on a world-class holiday experience from one of the greatest living voices in jazz.Listeners can find two original tracks, “Christmas in New York” and “Christmas Day” along with popular ballads such as “The Christmas Song,” “White Christmas,” “Let it Snow” and “This Christmas,” a modern twist on the Donny Hathaway holiday favorite. In James' version, he musically brings an aspect of R&B and hip-hop to the mostly Jazz collection.Songwriting for the project was spearheaded by José James and his partner, recently Grammy nominated Talia Billig. The album's studio band features Grammy winning and nominated all stars Ben Williams (bass), Aaron Parks(piano), Jharis Yokley (drums) and Marcus Strickland (soprano saxophone). Produced by José James and Brian Bender and recorded by Ariel Shafir at Dreamland Studios, the album was mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios. The session was recorded completely live on 2” tape and mixed in LCR (left-center-right) by Brian Bender at Motherbrain West.“It's the perfect album to put on whenever there's a certain spirit in the air,” James says. “I hope that people can feel a little bit of the joy and the wonder, year round, that 8-year-old José felt, not only about Christmas and all the obvious things—the ornaments, the tree, the holiday season—but also the music,” he continued.A 13 date tour to support the album will launch at SF Jazz in San Francisco on November 27th and conclude at New York's City Winery on December 14th. Stops also include Seattle, Portland, Santa Cruz, LA, Phoenix, Santa Fe, Minneapolis and Chicago. (All tour dates listed below). About José James James, a Minneapolis, MN native who spent most of his career in New York, was discovered by Gilles Peterson in London before his major label debut with Blue Note Records. He has produced and written 11 albums covering the best of jazz, pop, hip-hop and R&B. In 2017, José made his screen debut with a performing role in Fifty Shades Darker. He now lives in Amsterdam with Talia Billig, his partner and Grammy nominated songwriter.We want to hear from you!

Mike Mattison is an American musician and vocalist of the Grammy Award-winning blues rock/soul group, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, as well as lead vocalist and co-founder of the blues rock trio Scrapomatic.

On Terminus we've spoken frequently in the abstract about folk music and its relation to extreme metal, both musically and conceptually. It's only now, though, that we get to peek behind the metaphorical curtain into the thoughts of an artist who explores the ties between those styles. On this interview, The Black Metal Guy speaks to the main mind behind Harul Vinay, whose debut record explores the delicate liminal spaces between folk and metal in all their forms. This wide spanning interview covers all sorts of topics, both musical and spiritual, but the centerpiece is an evocative description of the album's concept and narrative as it ties to the landscape of the project's Himalayan home.   0:00:00 - Intro 0:02:05 - Songwriting concepts, folk and classical music, and the relationship to heavy metal 0:13:13 - History with black metal, the Himalayas 0:26:39 - Interlude - Harul Vinay - "भराड़ी घाट - १ / कुआळी" fr. भराड़ी घाट (Independent/Old Mill Productions, 2021) 0:35:14 - The album's concept and narrative, vocal ideas, musical details 0:54:25 - Recording process, the Himalayan Folk Collective, the purpose of folk 1:15:25 - Outro - Fluisteraars - "Brand woedt in mijn graf" fr.

Alexandria Faison is the worship pastor at the Vineyard Church of Davenport, Iowa.  She was born into a musical family of faith, singing solos in the choir at her Baptist church at 8 years old and eventually leading worship at 16 years old when they started attending the Vineyard.  Alex felt God's leadership call on her life while attending the University of Northern Iowa where she had a full-ride scholarship for music education, and she soon returned to her home church where she joined the staff as worship director in 2015.  Alex has worked with Vineyard Worship for several years and was a featured voice on Vineyard Soul: Generous God. She will also appear as a vocalist on the much anticipated release Breathe In, Sing Out, releasing early 2022. Alex is passionate about leading people into the presence of God through worship.   In this episode of The Ferment, Alex shares about her gospel roots, growing up in the black Baptist church and what it was like for her family to join a predominantly white congregation when they started attending the Vineyard. She also talks about becoming a worship pastor as a teenager and how she processed some of the reactions people had, the environment she's in that allows her to be brave and share her experiences as a young black woman, and how she has cultivated relationships in different seasons of life. Alex is an old and gentle soul and this episode is marked by her wisdom and joy.   Show Notes:  Alex's TikTok @alexandriafaison   VSOW Sound Lab Discount Code: Ferment15 Vsow.org   Vineyard Worship Together Daily- Alexandria and Kaleb Faison https://youtu.be/crkIq2UsG9E     Socials:  Instagram @thefermentpodcast Twitter @fermentcast TikTok @vineyardworship

Hello again fantastic listeners this is episode 60 of Sound Pollution. I really can't believe that I have made it all the way to episode 60! This week I got to interview the sweet, funny, and talented Funeral Mask. Funeral Mask is made up of four awesome musicians. Two of which have visited here before, Steve (AKA Stacking Pennies) and Rico. I am happy to have them back and meet the other two members of Funeral Mask, Thom and Mikey. They are going to tell us all about how they got together, stores behind 3 of their tracks, why they run the band as a democracy, how they used the time during the pandemic to re-create the album they just dropped, and a few laughs. I am excited to announce that I have a decided on a new co-host, the wonderful Brent. Remember Brent, as in Uncle Brent from my first episode, and my second episode, and my 16th episode. Brent has been a great supporter of this podcast and I have gone to him for advice on more than one occasion. This was his first time being on the other side of the interview, and I think he did a great job. Now Brent will be focusing on his family for the second half of December, and the lovely Sound Animal will be stepping in as my guest co-host during that time. I want to thank the other folks who showed an interest in the being a co-host on Sound Pollution. I appreciate ya, I know that being on this side of the microphone can sometimes be daunting, and it took balls to even ask for more information on the gig. I especially want to thank Michael Moody who was the only other one who took it to the next level and co-hosted an episode with me. Dude you rock, and I hope that you will step in and co-host with me again just for funzies down the road.

The Ferment Podcast - Conversations About Worship And Transformation

Calvin Rodgers is a Chicago native and drummer who has been credited with revolutionizing the voice of gospel drumming. His parents realized at a very young age that Calvin shared their love for music and an even stronger love for the drums in particular. Both parents worked very hard to invest as much as they could into their son's promising future. Around the age of 9, Calvin began shadowing his father, a well-known gospel musician, and songwriter, as his personal drummer. This afforded Calvin the opportunity of learning from some of gospel music's most prolific songwriters, artists, and musicians. By the time he entered high school, he was traveling with GRAMMY-nominated choir master Ricky Dillard & New Generation. Around the same time, he became a part of the Ravinia Jazz Mentors program, spearheaded by jazz pianist, Ramsey Lewis. Upon graduating high school, Calvin began touring with Lewis and learning his way around the studio. While recording a radio commercial for Rice A Roni, Calvin met R&B crooner, R. Kelly. Kelly invited Calvin to join his band for his upcoming world tour, TP2. Upon completion of that tour, Calvin decided to place his focus on becoming a recording drummer. He also began finding his voice as an arranger and a producer. With over 200 live/studio albums listed to his credit, he has also recorded and toured with artists such as R.Kelly, Ramsey Lewis, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Dionne Warwick, Destiny's Child, Ronald Isley,  Ernie Isley, Avant, Jonathan Butler, Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Fred Hammond, Yolanda Adams, Israel Houghton, Donald Lawrence, John P. Kee, Tommy Simms, Tamela Mann, and many, many others. Though quite accomplished, Calvin continues to push himself in all areas while making sure to sow into the next generation through mentoring and private lessons.     In this episode of The Ferment, Calvin and Adam talk about the church as a safe space to raise up musicians and the necessity of continuing to expose yourself to new styles and skillsets to become a well-rounded player. Calvin also gives some solid advice about bringing yourself humbly into unfamiliar gig environments so as to be in service to the songs and the intention of those who hired you while also offering what makes you unique.  The conversation touches on investing in upcoming players, staying true to your roots, encouragement for the Vineyard Movement, and Calvin's personal fermentation process.
