When Pat, with Lyle Mays, Steve Rodby, Antonio Sanchez, Cuong Vu, Gregoire Maret and Nando Lauria took the music to the world on a 6-month tour, fans everywhere were able to enjoy this thrilling and majestic music live and that’s the experience we want to share with you this week.

Every Friday beginning at 7 AM until midnight Eastern time we’ll begin each hour with a classic piece of Jazz Fusion history with our special feature we call IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.  Recently we’ve uncovered a host of rare fusion nuggets from great English bands, many of which are totally unavailable anywhere so get ready for a great history lesson and listening session all day as we present “BRITISH INVASION: THE GREATS OF ANGLO-FUSION.” Many of the bands from England that were involved in the “Art Rock” movement also loved jazz and created a blend of rock, classical and jazz that put a uniquely British stamp on fusion in the 1960’s & ‘70’s. Maybe you remember bands like Camel, Soft Machine, Brand X (which featured Phil Collins), Ian Carr & Nucleus, Gong and National Health.  Well, if you do then get ready to remember their wonderfully creative fusion and if you don’t get ready for a delightful surprise.  It’s “BRITISH INVASION: THE GREATS OF ANGLO-FUSION,” on this week’s edition of IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.

This Saturday, August 14th, we’ll focus on one of the major artists in MOJA as we present our weekly feature WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio this one titled “HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAT METHENY!” Over the years Russ Davis has had the joy of talking to the great guitarist, composer, bandleader and 17-time Grammy Award Winner and since he turns 56 on Thursday the 12th of August it’s a great time to take a snapshot of a life and career that seems to have come full circle from. “Bright Size Life” to “Orchestrion” and we’ll cover it all. You’ll hear all about his earliest relationships with Gary Burton and Jaco Pastorious, to his emergence as a solo artist and the formation of The Pat Metheny Group. You’ll hear all about his collaborations with the likes of Ornette Coleman, John Scofield, Brad Mehldau and others.  You’ll hear all the changes leading us up to the ultimate solo work and the marriage of man and machine with “Orchestrion” and all along the way we’ll enjoy all that brilliant music that has helped define what jazz is for over 3 decades. Interview segments followed by music will begin each hour from Noon through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific). Join us for “HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAT METHENY,” on this week’s WORDS & MUSIC.
