I'm not a number, or a color, or anything else you may try to use to describe me or categorize me. My spirit is indomitable. This best describes me and this best describes what I look for in the music I enjoy.

My musical taste are varied. Nothing gets me going like Latin and world music. At the same time, Basie and Ellington can engage parts of my body and soul no one else can reach. Good jazz is like good conversation: exciting, engaging, equal, and enjoyable. These are a few of the things that flip that switch that lives inside each of us that can only be reached with music.
The history of all big jazz bands shows was, first they played for dancing, and then they played for singing. People seem to have forgotten that fact. I'm not trying to disrespect any vocalist but without the instruments (not just a voice) it lacks severely.
There's room enough for everyone these days but I feel most have forgotten what true musicianship is about. Have a brain of your own and don't be spoon fed by people telling you what you should enjoy.
Jazz is America's own. It is played and listened to by all peoples - in harmony together. Pigmentation differences have no place... as in genuine democracy, only performance counts.
There was a time when record labels, not only hired the artists to feature them on their grand catalogues, but also worked on developing the artists into figures of main stream media and gain cult following. The music industry is one of the few industries to suffer at the hands of the internet financially. Music being easily available all over the internet has dropped the number of people who genuinely buy music. Same cannot be said about other media like TV shows, or movies which are also easily available on the internet, since they still manage to gain sales. But musicians all around the world have been compromised because of this since the concept of buying music is lost to this generation of internet users. Mr. Loren Israel has been working since the age of record labels to make artists more than just musicians, but entities with a global following. He still continues to provide his services to young artists who have been consumed whole by the internet and have been lacking the necessary recognition according to their talents.
Loren Israel is a record producer and an A&R consultant. He specializes in seeking new talent and developing them to take on the challenges of the modern music industry like champions and create a name for themselves. Musicians are trained performers and artists who paint a picture with a 1000 words and melodies. What they are not however, are businessmen. It's hard to find a musician who has a brain suited for the business and managerial aspects of music which are the key components of making or breaking an artist. Thankfully, Loren Israel has that area covered for artists who genuinely deserve their own spotlight.
With more than 16 years of experience under his belt, Mr. Loren Israel also specializes in teaching songwriting. His teachings other than basic musical teachings include vast knowledge on how to make music that works on the common people like magic. His concepts of creating simple music has changed the careers of many up and coming rock and pop artists who you may now know by name. These artists include the likes of 2AM club, Plain White Tees, The Unlikely Candidates etc. He has also worked with Coldplay and other widely popular artists.
Born in France, Alain Mallet moved to the States at the age of 21 to attend Berklee
College of Music where he is now associate professor in the ensemble and piano
departments. He has toured and recorded with some of the biggest names in
Jazz and pop including Phil Woods, Paul Simon, Paquito D'Rivera, Marc Johnson and Madeleine Peyroux. He is a critically acclaimed producer, particularly for his work with Jonatha Brooke. His original compositions have been recorded by jazz greats such as Gary Burton, Dave Samuels and Paquito D'Rivera to name a few.
I grew up in a household with very eclectic musical taste and variety. Everything from classical music to hard rock and all styles and genres in between. Tejano, polka, Andrew Sisters, Barry Manilow, Count Basie, AC/DC, BB King, Little Richard, Mickey Gilley, Louis Prima Keely Smith, Ella, Michael Buble were but a few of the artists I grew up listening to.
I searched and searched and discovered the DNA in all of them originated in jazz. Why not go to the source?

I am a long-time resident of New York City, and I've also had the pleasure of residing
in Boston, Mass, Paris, France, Berkeley, California, and Kenai, Alaska. Joe Farrell's
"Moon Germs" was the album that got me started listening to and learning about jazz
music; John Coltrane's "Coltrane" was the first album I owned; and for almost four
decades, Phil Schaap on WKCR out of Columbia University has been my jazz
"instructor." In the '80's I was fortunate to get to know the amazing Art Buhaina
Blakey and a killer version of his Jazz Messengers which included the then-young
lions Bobby Watson, Bill Pierce, Charles Fambrough, James Williams, and 19-year old
Wynton Marsalis. A 1981 interview with Wynton for the Paris (France) FREE VOICE
was my first published piece. Since then, I've had a career on the business side of
media, including a stint at The New Yorker and several web start-ups, while also
writing about culture, food and well-being. Recently I've returned to writing about
music, hoping to discover and share artists I love.

In July 2016 he released his most recent album, NaBarriguda. It is
his second solo album and uses baritone saxophone in Brazilian
music. The album has five songs composed by Esdras himself, some
in partnership with guitar player Marcus Moraes, plus “O Mundo é
um Moinho”, by Cartola, “Lôro”, by Egberto Gismonti, and “Capricho
de Raphael”, by Hamilton de Holanda. The album also includes the
participation of the great trombonist Bocato in three songs. It is an
instrumental album with upbeat melodies that can be danced to
highly influenced by the rhythms from the north of Brazil, the
guitarradas (from Pará), and forró (from the entire northeast), with
the musical freedom provided by jazz, and also influenced by
experiences in travels throughout the world, but with the certainty
that Brazilian music is the true north.
In December 2014, Esdras released his first solo album with the
baritone saxophone, Capivara, where he plays songs by Hermeto
Pascoal with the approval of the composer himself.
"I listened to it and it’s very good. I was very pleased with his
interpretation of the music. The songs are different but without
losing their essence. I write songs always hoping that people will
play them. If he had come to me before recording I might have
even given him some ideas, but Esdras is off to a great start. He’ll

I'm a young jazz vocalist and writer. I was born in Belgium,
but spent most of my childhood in England, where I studied at a private school in
Brentwood, Essex. As a child, I was active as a student at the
London Academy Of Music and Dramatic Art and as a member of a youth choir.
After I had moved back to Belgium, I started taking both singing and music
theory lessons at a music academy. After doing that for 3 years, I decided to
start taking private, classical singing and piano lessons as well.
At the age of sixteen, I started art school (HKJ in Hasselt), where I studied
jazz vocals. I graduated in 2014 and am currently studying jazz at the
University of Arts (Universität der Kunste) in Berlin.
Recently won the jazz contest of Muziekmozaïek at the Gentse Feesten with
my quartet and will record and release my debut album in 2017, if you don't mind
me boasting ;)

existential crisis here and there, I hope to combine my love for jazz and philosophy
