Many years ago, Greg Knight and his third-generation farming family shared a dream: To use their farm and the land it sat on to hold a a world-class music festival, with an emphasis based around their strong community values, a love for the land and the agriculture, and for the people who loved the music as much as they did. A LITERAL field of dreams! Once they decided to create the music festival, there was no turning back - - - And to pull it off, they quickly brought on a team of professionals and volunteers to bring the vision to life. An important element in the Knight's vision of their music festival was that everyone involved embracing a team approach to volunteerism, creativity, innovation, and promoting a FREE spirit of marching to your own drum. The goal was to invite music fans to the farm who wanted to engage with their favorite entertainers that make the music they love and the local farmers who grow the food that they eat. And Farm Jam was born! What sprung from that foundation is the Pacific Northwest's premier independent music festival that spotlights indie and original music in a major way. FarmJam® connects music lovers with bands, farmers, ranchers, and the local community.

You might think you have just accidentally stumbled into a powerful music execs boardroom today, a fly on the wall to a conversation very few have the opportunity to be privy to…Because in this TJS music execs boardroom today sit LA Personal Development's Founder Mike Gormley, who has worked with everyone from Rod Stewart, Rush, The Bangles, Prince, and The Police, the young and extremely talented vocalist Anais Reno, and Senior Vice President of GoldenVoice Concert Promotions, the legendary Moss Jacobs. Today our very special guest is Moss Jacobs, and in the next hour we are going to give you a peek behind the curtain of one of the top music promoters in the world. We'll take you through a day in the life of a concert promoters duties and what happens backstage right up to showtime! But First: ANAÏS RENO - New Album was released on April 16. The album is called “Lovesome Thing: Anaïs Reno Sings Ellington & Strayhorn.” Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn were collaborators for several decades beginning in the late 1930s. Anaïs Reno has chosen to use their compositions as the basis for her debut release Lovesome Thing: Anaïs Reno Sings Ellington & Strayhorn. This choice was not without risk as the harmonic structure and lyrics of some of the compositions are suited to an experienced vocalist. Anais was undeterred and in addition to being fearless in her choice of material, Anais knew what she wanted in terms of a supporting musical cast that would enhance her vocal efforts. Pianist and arranger Emmet Cohen was an ideal selection as he is a stellar and inventive musician. Rounding out the band are Russell Hall (bass), Kyle Poole (drums), Tivon Pennicott (saxophone) and on a couple of tracks violinist Juliet Kurtzman, who also happens to be Anais's mother. I wanted to read a couple great reviews of “Lovesome Thing: Anaïs Reno Sings Ellington & Strayhorn.” This review is by Contemporary Fusion Reviews by Dick Metcalf “You'll know you're in the presence of pure young vocal genius when you hear Anaïs sing Strayhorn's “Lush Life“… I can honestly say that this is the most emotion-filled performance of this song I have ever heard! Anaïs makes “I'm Just a Lucky So and So” her very own… an absolute “smash hit” for this reviewer!” And in the column review “All About Jazz" by Pierre Giroux, he says of Anais: “The choice was not without risk but the results are more than impressive… Gliding over the lyrics, she shows a gift for flowing delicacy. Anaïs Reno exudes confidence on this debut.” https://www.anaisreno.com https://www.goldenvoice.com https://sbbowl.com https://www.hollywoodbowl.com

In this podcast, we'll be talking to jazz saxophonist and composer Quinsin Nachoff. His new album Pivotal Arc is released today on Whirlwind Recordings. Quinsin's music has been well-known for its unpredictability and innovation, for crossing boundaries between different musical genres and pushing the performers' barriers. The album is based around three main works. Firstly, a violin concerto features virtuoso soloist Nathalie Bonin, and a jazz-tinged unit comprising two giants of the New York scene (bassist Mark Helias and drummer Satoshi Takeishi), vibraphone player Michael Davidson, and a wind and string ensemble conducted by JC Sanford. The first movement is written as "an imaginary deconstructed and reconstructed Tango." The second movement is a ballad that combines both written and improvised sections and the third is inspired by Balkan folk music. The String Quartet (performed by the Molinari String Quartet) "represents some of Nachoff’s most intricate writing to date, allowing him to explore his deep attachment to the tradition and his engagement with contemporary iterations." As he recalls, "I like to keep up with what's happening now in quartet writing and this gave me the opportunity to explore some of those ideas – pitch axis, using quarter tones, etc., but still keeping a jazz influence because that’s a large part of my background.." The final work, Pivotal Arc, has been described as "Nachoff's extended reflection on the critical position we currently find ourselves in regarding climate change." It's perhaps the most traditional jazz-sounding work on the album with ample opportunity for interplay between the jazz unit and solos from bassist Helias, drummer Satoshi Takeishi, and Nachoff's tenor saxophone. With broad influences ranging from Strayhorn to Mancini, Bartók to Berg, this is a unique album that's refreshing and innovative to listen to from both the classical and jazz perspectives. Many thanks to: Quinsin for talking to me and his permission to use some extracts from the album in this podcast. Ann Braithwaite for bringing this really interesting project to my attention.

Donald Macleod looks at five key environments that shaped Billy Strayhorn's personal and musical trajectory. Donald starts the journey in Homewood, Pittsburgh, where Billy Strayhorn’s early life was over-shadowed by poverty and a violent father. Over six years of toil as a “soda jerk and delivery boy” he saved up for music college, but an Art Tatum record showed him that everything he loved about classical music was there in one form or another in jazz. Strayhorn cut free and moved to New York, where his path crossed with Duke Ellington. He was quick to discover an exciting new world of opportunity, playing and writing for Ellington’s famous band – a complex relationship that continued for almost thirty years. Work took him to Hollywood - Donald explores the reasons why this turned out to be both an opportunity and a source of disillusionment. We also hear of Strayhorn’s love affair with Paris, the city where he found the night-life and the artistic independence he craved, and where he was given the chance to record his first album under his own name. Finally, Donald charts the ups and many downs of Strayhorn's final years, which he spent in Riverside Drive, New York.

Joe Henderson was one of the finest tenor saxophonists in jazz. Fellow saxophonist Julian Siegel joins Alyn Shipton to assess Henderson's catalogue of discs from his early Blue Note days to his final triumphs playing the music of Strayhorn and Jobim. The programme also includes part of an archive interview with Henderson. Joe Henderson's career falls into two distinct parts, his early days as a young lion, recording with the cream of 1960s modern jazz players for Blue Note, and his remarkable comeback after his celebrated trio disc "The State of the Tenor" in 1985, which led to a new international touring career. He discusses this later stage of his career with Alyn Shipton in a Radio 3 interview from the mid-1990s and the rest of his catalogue is assessed by Julian Siegel, a frequent UK poll winner who has been greatly influenced by Henderson.
