This drummer, percussionist, educator continues to demonstrate amazing flexibility.

The list of situations he's appeared in is quite amazing; some of those he's worked with include Willie Bobo, Gerald Wilson, Thelonious Monk, Eddie Harris, George Duke, Miles, Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Weather Report, Michael Jackson, and the Crusaders

Representing for the group 3 Brave Souls with this new release on BFM label is (Leon) Ndugu Chancler

I'll continue to post that we broadcast on the web for the moment; that said we haven't streamed the past 3 weeks consecutively. Sorry for the inconvenience if you've tried to tune in. Have gotten all kinds of calls to the studio from regular listeners who miss receiving us on the WWW.

Summers at the university is a combination of misc. fix-up projects at the same time reduced staff and less communication than other times of the year. I'll try to find out what's up and post anything we find out regarding this.

L.A. based guitarist/composer/studio musician and San Jose native Grant Geissman joins us with his latest CD "Bop! Bang! Boom!" on his very own Futurism Records.

Grant is a helluva player IMO who flies well under the radar, and has a knack for writing catchy tunes that are well played and a lot of fun!
