Artist Of The Month Mike Stern:

http://www.soundsoftimelessjazz.com/


Speaking of Mike Stern, who is arguably the best known, and definitely the
hardest working of the modern Jazz Rocker's, I wonder how many stations are
talking about his upcoming release:
"Who Let the Cat's Out" on Heads Up International (part of Telarc) scheduled
to hit the streets on August 15th?

I have to give Heads up some real credit for their marketing approach too.
They have something called Street Cats that bypasses traditional marketing
schemes and enlists the aid of the fans.

It's an interesting thing for me, because I'm just doing what I'd normally
be doing, and now it scores points? Very interesting. I doubt it's a new
idea, but sometimes the old ones are the good ones.
 
Even this message is worth points, if I choose to let them know I posted it.

Hey, does that mean this whole message is spam? You know, I don't care,
Stern is worth the effort simply as a payback for all the great music he's
made and the fact that he's one of the few Jazz Rocker's that tour the US.
Ok, it's just the coasts, but at least he's out there humping it.
 
Has anyone been to a Stern concert lately and watched him work? He takes no
break between sets or immediately after the show - he comes out to the lobby

and signs autographs, or gets his picture taken with fans. He definitely
leads by example and is bringing some of the best musicians together.
Richard Bona, Vinnie Colaiuta, Alain Caron, Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckl,
Victor Wooten, and the list goes on.
 
Just curious about his exposure on traditional Jazz stations - does he get
any?
 
Thanks,
 
Rick

Territory Orchestra

-------------------------------------------

MTO Volume 1 is the debut album from Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory
Orchestra.  The nine-piece outfit features some of Gotham's most original
musical voices, wicked and well-traveled improvisers who tear into and savor
Bernstein's arrangements like the tangiest Kansas City barbecue. The
selection of tunes includes classic '20s fare (Charlie Johnson's ''Boy in
the Boat,''
Bennie Moten's ''Toby'') and the kind of contemporary pop and R&B hits
(Prince's ''Darling Nikki,'' Stevie Wonder's ''Signed, Sealed, Delivered'')
that have long been part of Bernstein's repertoire. The vibrancy of the
playing, the wit and sass of the arrangements, uncovers the genetic code
that makes Bennie Moten and Prince funk-soul brothers of the first order.
All this, without once conjuring the snoot of academe or dreaded notions of
''post-modern jazz.''

The Millennial Territory Orchestra is:  Steven Bernstein (trumpet, slide
trumpet), Ben Allison (bass) Peter Apfelbaum (tenor) Charlie Burnham
(violin)
Clark Gayton (trombone), Erik Lawrence (baritone, soprano) Matt Munisteri
(guitar, banjo, vocal), Ben Perowsky (drums) Doug Wieselman (clarinet, tenor
saxophone) and special guest Doug Wamble (guitar, vocal) on ''Signed, Sealed
& Delivered''

IN STORES 8/1.

AT RADIO...right...about.....now.  Got it?  Hope so.
