Jessy J – Interview Cafe

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

From the moment Jessy J hit the stage in Fresno, California for the first time as a member of super producer/guitarist Paul Browns live band on Valentines Day 2006, the love between the 20-something-year-old saxophonist/vocalist and contemporary jazz fans has been flowing nonstop. The growing buzz led to her first major show at the Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival later that year, and in 2007, as part of the events 20th anniversary, she became one of the only artists to ever headline shows on all three weekends. Now she is taking it to the next level, stepping out under the Tequila Moon on her multi-faceted, Brown-produced Peak Records debut that brings to the genre a fresh and inspired energy with vibrant exotic twists.

She is a wonderful person, and performed at our Cheyenne Lodge on a very cold, snowy night… but her music heated up the lodge really quick, and a lot of fun was had by all.

Rick Braun & Richard Elliot – Interview Cafe

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

R-N-R – When Rick Braun and Richard Elliot decided to start ARTizen Music Group it was a pretty fair bet that collaboration would be on the boards. After all, Rick’s best-selling release to date is his collaboration with Boney James (Shake It Up). Duet albums from Bob James & David Sanborn, Lee Ritenour & Dave Grusin, George Benson & Earl Klugh are among the top-sellers of this (or any) genre. Richard had toured with Rick numerous times yet hadn’t a real studio long-player to share credits with. Nonetheless, for these two stars it had to be perfect.

Almost three years later and over half a dozen releases on their label that time had come. The planets aligned and they began writing and recording their own record together.

They performed at our weekend of jazz – both of these musicians are very talented, and have played with so many people over the years. Richard Elliot was in Tower of Power for 5 years, and his first gig was with Natalie Cole and the Pointer Sisters when he was still in High School. Rick Braun was in the band War – Rick went to the Eastman school of music – these guys are really amazing and a lot of fun!. they put on an unforgettable show, and now here they are, Rick Braun and Richard Elliot or also known as R-N-R.
