The Pulse of Entertainment: Maysa Releases Exceptionally Fresh Holiday Album, ‘A Very Maysa Christmas’

Maysa, the Queen of Jazz, releases an exceptionally fresh Christmas album, ‘A Very Maysa Christmas’

Grammy Award nominated Maysa releases Jazz Christmas album, 'A Very Maysa Christmas, featuring Gerald Albright and Will Downing.

Grammy Award nominated Maysa releases Jazz Christmas album, ‘A Very Maysa Christmas,” featuring Gerald Albright and Will Downing.

*“People asked me,” simply said Maysa, a Grammy Award nominated Contemporary Jazz singer, when asked why she recorded a Christmas album. The album is titled “A Very Maysa Christmas” and it features Gerald Albright and Will Downing. “My record company said, ‘we’ll put it out.’…and after 20,000 sales ownership comes back to me!”

The album is on the Shanachie imprint where she received a Grammy Award nomination for her 2013 project release “Blue Velvet Soul.” The Maryland native has released 11 albums, seven on Shanachie Entertainment.

“It has great arrangements,” Maysa said about the Christmas project. “My producer (Chris “Big Boy” Davis)…is really good at arranging. I’m proud of him. I think we did good Jazz R&B and Gospel.”

“A Very Maysa Christmas” is an exceptionally fresh Christmas album. My favorites on the project include “The Little Drummer Boy” because of that Jazzy spin on an old choral, I like that African flavor too, and the horn support gave it that “cherry on the cake” feeling; “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” featuring rap support from Jigz; “Jingle Bells” because she kept it traditional, but gave is some scat at the end to give it that Jazz feel; “Christmas Time is Here” is simply lovely – and I love the keys on this one; “The First Noel” sounds like if there was a sound for snow it would be this song, and “Silver Bells” featuring Gerald Albright for his voice, and Maysa taking off at the end scatting as a true Queen of Jazz should.

“Since I was a little girl I wanted to sing… since 6 years old,” Maysa pointed out when I talked about her tremendous career and contribution to Contemporary Jazz. “Each step I know God had me in his hands. He gave me things I never thought of…I relax and pray and things come to me….God diffidently heard.”

After college Maysa moved to California to work as Stevie Wonder’s backup singer in his Wonder Love Group. Later she had a phone audition for the British group founded by Bluey called Incognito, and became the face and voice of the already well known London based band. Three years later she would release her solo debut and top the Billboard Charts, as well as garner a Soul Train Award.

Maysa is touring with “Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour”. You can log onto www.Maysa.com for more information on “A Very Maysa Christmas,” or dates on the “Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour.”

Multi-Grammy Award winning Quincy Jones executive produce debut album of girl group Blush, 3rd single ‘Every Woman’ benfits breast cancer research.

*“He came on after we were together. He came on as executive producer,” said Victoria one of four members of the Pop group Blush. Victoria was referring to 27-time Grammy Award winner Quincy Jones when I asked them if he discovered the group. “Blush was formed in late 2010… in the ‘Project Lotus’ competition.”

“Project Lotus: The Search for Blush” was a reality show about the forming of the group by FarWest Entertainment. They wanted an Asian group to sell big in the U.S. The members of Blush are Victoria (China), Natsuko aka Nacho (Japan), Angeli (Philippines), and Alisha (India).

“It was six weeks of singing and dancing,” Alisha added about the experience on the “Project Lotus” reality show.

“We come together through music,” Victoria stated. “Some of us have never been away from home.”

The girls have been together for four years now and fitting in together very well it seems. Their debut single off the upcoming debut album is titled “Undivided” featuring Snoop Dogg. They released a debut EP of the same name in 2012. The second single off of the upcoming debut album is titled “Dance On” which reached #1 on Billboard Charts. Blush is currently promoting the October, 2014 single release of their third titled “Every Woman.” Proceeds from then “Every Woman” single will go to benefit the Dr. Susan Love Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

*Nt that much, a couple more vacations and more flossing,” laughs Omar Gooding (“Single Ladies”) when asked what he’d do if he won $500,000 million in a lottery, which is the storyline of the Bounce TV original sitcom “Family Time.” “Family Time” also stars Angell Conwell (The Wash). Los Angeles native Gooding and Conwell (Soul Plan) are the Stallworth couple who wins $500,000 in a lottery. It airs on Tuesdays at 10/9c.

“I’d flip it in some way shape or form – give some to grandma,” said Angell about what she would do with the money. “Family Time” is created, produced and written by Bentley Kyle Evans (“Martin,” “The Jamie Foxx Show”). “There’s nothing like stability and peace of mind, and a home.”

This is the second season of the sitcom that also stars Bentley Kyle Evans Jr. as Devin Stallworth; Janjareen Thomas (Johnson Family Vacation) as Rachel, and Jayla Calhoun as Ebony Stallworth. Omar (“Smart Guy”) is Anthony Stallworth and Angell (“Young and the Restless”) is Lisa, a working class family that hits the lottery.

Bounce TV was founded by former mayor of Atlanta/UN Ambassador Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III in 2011, and it is now in 87 markets.

“We go through pitfalls, you never know what will pop up,” said Gooding about what one would experience as a $500,000 lottery winner.

“You have to deal with IRS,” Angell added.

Gospel band Sensere puts a fresh sound into Inspirational music

Sensere, a Jazz/Gospel band is adding a fresh new sound to Inspirational music.

Sensere, a Jazz/Gospel band is adding a fresh new sound to Inspirational music.

Sensere is a Gospel band that has a fresh sound of Jazz flavored Inspirational music and they are carving their place in the Gospel music industry one step at a time with performances on TBN’s “700 Club,” Grammy Award winner Dr. Bobby Jones’ BET “Bobby Jones Gospel,” as well as touring with Patti LaBelle and Mary Mary.

Sony and Warner Bros veteran executive Eddie Pugh discovered the group in South Florida. The band was formed by musician/singer James “J Dubb” Wright III – lead guitar player, drummer, bass player and keyboardist.

“I’m the background singer, I write the songs and produce,” said J Dubb about his role in the band that has three singers in tow. “I put the whole thing together. I grew up on music like Earth, Wind and Fire and The Temptations, and it inspired me to start a band. I didn’t see anything like that in Gospel.”

Sensere (Sensere Music/Wright Sound Enter/Gods Turn Records) are well dressed singers and band members with matching moves giving you that EWF and Temptation era feel. The other members include Brian (vocal), Terrell (vocals), Dewayne (vocal), Marcelin (guitar and sax), and Darryl (trumpet).

“My wife is also a choreographer, dancer teacher,” Wright III said about the moves. “She choreographs on the side, but in no way shape or form are we dancers. The horn set really moves. Darryl was in a marching band, the guitar player they choreograph their moves.”

“I have a strong quartet background,” James pointed out in explaining the style of the band. “It’s not something I thought of doing it just came out…the sound. I wanted a record to appeal to everybody. The youth love is.”

*I was invited to the red carpet arrivals of the NAACP 2014 7th Annual Beverly Hills-Hollywood Theatre Festival honoring plays and playwrights by playwright and friend LaRita Shelby (known on stage as Jazzy Rita). Shelby’s play is titled “Expresso Café”

“The NAACP is the most loved and renowned civil rights organization and in their effort to bring quality in the work world…it’s absolutely marvelous that they are also bringing diversity in the performing and creative arts,” said LaRita Shelby, MS (Jazz singer, actress, journalist, and author) about the event.

These playwrights had the honor of having veteran actors perform in their 10 minute plays. Lou Beatty Jr. was in “Lady Patriot,” Roger Guenveur Smith in “Frederick Douglass,” Ted Lange in “Lady Patriot,” and Phil Morris in “Soldiers Play.”

“Exposure, exposure, exposure,” said Phil Morris (“Love That Girl”) about what the event does for the independent plays that were showcased. “We need the same opportunities as everybody else.”

The NAACP Beverly-Hill – Hollywood Theatre Festival was founded by Tia Boyd and it’s her way of saluting black theater.

Brad Pitt stars in and executive produce the Columbia Pictures’ presentation of Fury, an American Tank Team story.

*The David Ayer directed Columbia Pictures’ presentation of Fury is the definition of bravery. The Brad Pitt (12 Years a Slave) produced action/drama follows five men put together by chance at a time when the world was at war. Fury hits theaters October 17, 2014.

Fury, their tank’s name, one of the last tanks left in the war against Hitler, and its crossing Germany checking village after village, house after house for the final stages of the war. It’s the final stages of the war and we seem to be winning it even though we have out-dated equipment and low on supplies.

Five tank members, lead by Wardaddy (Academy Award winner Brad Pit), find themselves at an important position charged with stopping the final attacked by the Nazi trying to gain back control of Germany. Though the Nazi equipment was more modern than the tank the American team had, and the ratio – 200 German soldiers against 5 in one tank – meant they all would probably die – they decided to stand.

Emmy Award winner Shia LaBeouf (Transformer: Dark of the Moon), Logan Lerman, Michael Pena (End of Watch, Turbo) and Jon Bernthal (Snitch) completed the tank team. Fury also stars Scott Eastwood and Jason Isaac. Producing with Pitt are Bill Block, Ayers, Ethan Smith, and John Lesher. The Rated R film is executively produced by Brad, Sasha Shapiro, Anton Lessine, Alex Ott, and Ben Waisbren. Fury is presented in association with QED International and LStar Capital. It is a QED International/Le Grisbi Productions/ Crave Films production by David Ayer.

Music executive Vicki Mack, cofounder of GospelCentric – now owned by Sony Music, and current owner of Central South Distributers recevied the ‘Focus Award’ by First Ladies High Tea.

*BET’s Dr. Bobby Jones of the “Bobby Jones Gospel” show co-hosted the 17th annual First Ladies High Tea at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Dr. Jones a Grammy Award winner brought his larger than life personality to shine the light on extraordinary first ladies of the church – women whose husbands lead the church.

The First Ladies High Tea event honors a long list of first ladies of the church, along with a fashion show and performances. I covered the red carpet arrivals and had a chance to talk briefly with Dr. Bobby Jones, and Vicki Mack Lataillade who received a special honor, the “Focus Award.” Vicki co-founded GospelCentric, a record label, which is currently owned by Sony Music, and is now one of the largest Gospel labels in the world. GospelCentric is where Kirk Franklin, J. Moss, and Dorinda Clark Cole are signed. She is now owner of Central South Distribution, the largest black owned Gospel record distributer in the world, grossing over 300 million a year.

“I started the label that Kirk Franklin is on…I partnered with Jimmy Levine,” said music executive Vicki Mack about her jaw-dropping career. “They call me the Berry Gordy of Gospel. I own a distribution company now.” When I asked her what challenges of being a woman in the music business she said, “Everything is a challenge, especially being a woman in business.”

I also had a chance to talk to April Weeden-White who is married to Bishop John White (Dominion Hilltop Ministry) who resides over eight churches across the country. April is also a stuntwoman who has doubled for Halle’ Berry, Jennifer Lopez, and Regina King.

“I enjoy being a first lady,” said April Weeden-White about her position in her husbands’ churches. “Being a first lady you have to be handy at all times and you have to be a people person…and I am a people person…because people will be pulling on you.”

Dr. Beverly Crawford, pastor of Bible Enrichment Fellowship International Church, co-hosted the event with Dr. Jones. Tony and Emmy Award winning Cicely Tyson received the “Legacy Award.” Grammy Award winner Smokie Norful and Grammy nominated Tata Vega performed.

The Pulse of Entertainment: ‘Alexander and the Terrible’ Stars Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell

Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day makes bad days fun, stars Jennifer Garner-Afflect and Steve Carell, arrives in theaters December 10, 2014

Disney releases Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, starring Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell.

Disney releases Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, starring Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell.

*”Alex is quit relatable,” said Ed Oxenbould who plays Alexander in Disney’s presentation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day that stars SAG Award nominated Jennifer Garner-Affleck (The Odd Life of Timothy Green) and Golden Globe winner Steve Carell (Get Smart). “Other kids can relate to him.”

Alex is a high school aged typical boy who seems to always have a bad day, so much so it goes unnoticed by this family. Jennifer is Kelly Cooper the very busy career mother who works for a book publishing company, and Steve (“The Office”) is Ben Cooper an out of work/but looking father. It is Alexander’s birthday and he makes a wish that his family – which also includes the very handsome brother Anthony Cooper played by Dylan Minnette (“Scandal”), and aspiring actress/singer sister Emily Cooper played by Kerris Dorsey (Money Ball) – would experience a bad day too.

So everyone, except Alexander, is having a bad day on his birthday, but as Ed said the characters are all so relatable they make bad days fun. At the end of the day everything works out as things do.

The comedic film is based on the 1972 classic children’s book by Judith Viorst of the same name. The Cooper family also includes adorable baby Trevor played by twins Elise and Zoey Vagas. Out of work Ben Cooper has the duty of babysitting baby Trevor. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is full of laughs for the whole family.

Miguel Arteta directed the Rated PG film. The screenplay was written by Rob Lieber, and it was produced by Dan Levine, Lisa Henson and Shawn Levy.

Jazz keyboardist Patrick Bradley releases ‘Can You Hear Me” featuring Dave Koz and Rick Braun

Jazz keyboardist Patrick Bradley releases new album, 'Can You Hear Me,' features Dave Koz and Rick Braun.

Jazz keyboardist Patrick Bradley releases new album, ‘Can You Hear Me,’ features Dave Koz and Rick Braun.

*“This one was inspired by a need to write music,” said Contemporary Jazz Fusion keyboardist Patrick Bradley about his new album release, “Can You Hear Me,” that features saxophonist Dave Koz, trumpeter Rick Braun and saxophonist Eric Marienthal. ”It all unfolded. I wanted to have a song for my mother…she passed away in 2008. It was some heavy stuff going on. ‘Can You Hear Me’ ended up the single.”

The “Can You Hear Me” album is produced by Jeff Lorber. My favorite cuts on the album include the title track because that horn support is a perfect blend to Bradley’s keys; “All In” because I love the excellent Smooth Jazz feel to it; “For Her” for its funky Jazz style, and I love the lead guitar support; “Shoreline” for Patrick’s skills on the keys; “Voyage” has that Latin feel I love, and the horn support was amazing; “Catalan” also had a funky Jazz feel because of the way he played, and “Sierra” is a nice number with a futuristic sound to it.
