> Dear Colleagues -
> I am excited to announce the upcoming debut on October 7 of "Jazz  
> Without Borders," an overnight program I will produce and host that  
> will be broadcast live weekly from Saturday midnight through Sunday  
> at 3 am on the 16 station Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) network  
> (weekly cume circa 180,000 listeners).
> The text of the article announcing the program to be published in  
> GPB's October 2006 program guide is below FYI.
> Among my goals are: to air more progressive jazz (both historical and  
> current) in an effort attract younger listeners and establish an  
> audience base for the music in the years to come; to play “currents”  
> often as a way to support the jazz music of the moment which is often  
> overshadowed by or gets ignored by mainstream jazz radio in favor of  
> popular and archival favorites; to play non-American artists not only  
> from Latin America and the Caribbean but also from Europe; and to  
> celebrate the heyday during the 1970s of jazz rock fusion and the  
> creative music scenes in Chicago (AACM), St. Louis (BAG) and lower  
> Manhattan (the loft scene).  This will definitely be the type of  
> program-programming Bob Rogers (among others) would want to listen  
> to :-)
> I will be contacting fellow promoters and labels off list about  
> getting serviced with CDs (or feel free to contact me directly)  
> however should you want to go ahead and add me (if I am not on your  
> list already) please use the address at the bottom of this e-mail.   
> Weekly playlists will be posted at JPL as well as at www.gpb.org.   
> There will be a Jazz Without Borders section on their website for  
> jazz links, CD of the month, jazz birthdays and more -- if you are  
> interested in linking to my part of the GPB website please let me  
> know your URL, etc. and I will forward info to the GPB webmaster -  
> art director.
> I'm looking forward to getting back on the air after a hiatus of  
> several months since my last broadcast at KUVO at the end of May.
> Hope you'll tune in!
> Best regards and music always,
> Mitchell
> Georgia Public Broadcasting Expands Its Jazz Programming with Jazz  
> Without Borders
> GPB is pleased to add another original program to its jazz line-up.  
> Saturdays from midnight to 3AM, beginning October 7, Mitchell Feldman  
> hosts "Jazz Without Borders" from the studios of WACG/90.7FM in  
> Augusta. This new show expands the stylistic and geographic spectrum  
> of jazz currently heard during GPB’s other jazz offerings such as  
> “The Jazz Spot,” “Piano Jazz” and “Jazz With Bob Parlocha”. Jazz  
> aficionado Feldman mixes post-1950s modern jazz (i.e. the music of  
> such masters as Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, John  
> Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, etc.), classic jazz-rock fusion (electric  
> Miles, Weather Report, Return to Forever, John McLaughlin, etc.) and  
> freer forms of jazz (Art Ensemble of Chicago, World Saxophone  
> Quartet, Air, etc.) from their heydays in the 1970s ; current  
> releases by artists keeping the mainstream jazz tradition alive today  
> (i.e. Wynton Marsalis, Pat Martino, the Clayton Brothers, Cedar  
> Walton, Eldar, etc.); established and emerging visionaries extending  
> jazz’s stylistic horizons (e.g. Dave Holland, Joe Lovano, Uri Caine,  
> Dave Douglas, Ravi Coltrane, Vijay Iyer, Chris Potter, Avishai Cohen,  
> the Bad Plus, etc.); “Jam Bands” (Charlie Hunter, Medeski Martin &  
> Wood, Soulive, etc.); non-American artists from Europe, the  
> Caribbean, South America, Africa, etc. (Enrico Rava, Paolo Fresu,  
> Gianluca Petrella, Michel Portal, Tomasz Stanko, Jan Garbarek, Chucho  
> Valdes, Oscar Castro Neves, Eddie Palmieri, etc.).
> Mitchell Feldman has been publicizing, promoting and marketing jazz,  
> classical and world music since 1976. As he says “My formative years  
> that laid the foundation for success I would have both in the U.S.  
> and abroad were spent in Georgia — on the Contemporary Concert  
> Committee and as Music and Jazz Director at WUOG-FM while attending  
> journalism grad school at the University of Georgia in the late 70s;  
> as Music Program Director and producer of the 1980 Atlanta Free Jazz  
> Festival and 1981 World Concert Series while working for the City  
> ofAtlanta Department of Cultural Affairs; and as the weekly freelance  
> jazz critic for The Atlanta Constitution, music editor of Atlanta  
> Magazine and jazz columnist for Creative Loafing in the early-mid 80s.”
>  From 2004-2006 Feldman hosted “Friday Night Jazz” on Jazz 89 KUVO in  
> Denver, the #1 major market jazz station in the U.S. He has recently  
> relocated to Augusta, GA and will host "Jazz Without Borders" live  
> each week. So, all you night owls, join GPB for even more great jazz  
> on "Jazz Without Borders," Saturdays, midnight to 3AM.

CRITICAL MASS features eight road-tested, original compositions on record
