MOJA Radio/WEEKLY FEATURES   (30 August-5 September 2010)

We’ll celebrate one of the greatest vocalists in all of jazz history  
this Monday, August 30th, as we present another edition of our  
special feature, MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS on MOJA Radio, and this time  
the focus is on the great AL JARREAU. He’s the only vocalist to win  
Grammy awards in three categories, jazz, pop and r&b, for a total of  
6 Grammy’s in all. You’ll hear about his beginnings growing up in  
Milwaukee, his breakthrough as a singer on the West Coast with George  
Duke, his many great collaborations and his rise to international  
stardom. And of course you’ll hear lots of that fantastic music. Al  
has recovered from a recent collapse during his European tour but  
he’s back on stage again and we’re happy to celebrate this great  
artist and ageless wonder who just turned 70 this past Spring! Listen  
for MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS twice every Monday, at Noon Eastern/9 AM  
Pacific, with a replay Monday night at 9 PM Eastern/6 PM Pacific and

Friday we’ll continue that theme here on MOJA Radio with our special  
feature we call IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION. Every Friday  
beginning at 7 AM until midnight Eastern time we’ll begin each hour  
with a classic piece of Jazz Fusion history and this week join us for  
the music of the singers who made fusion history as we present  
“FUSION’S GREATEST VOCAL HITS.” You just may be surprised at all the  
great vocalizing that went on in the 1970’s during Fusion’s heyday.   
How about Al Jarreau’s 70’s classics “We Got By,” and “Look To The  
Rainbow,” or the contribution of Brazilian vocalists like Flora Purim  
with Return To Forever or Milton Nascimento with Wayne Shorter?  How  
about George Duke funky offerings, or Joni Mitchell’s collaborations  
with jazzers like Tom Scott, Pat Metheny & Jaco Pastorious? Then  
there’s Jaco with Sam & Dave, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, Return To  
Forever’s vocal tunes featuring Chick Corea’s wife Gayle Moran and  
Stanley Clarke, plus Stanley’s collaborations with George Duke and  
the vocal work of the father of afrobeat, Fela Kuti of Nigeria.   
You’ll hear it all, all day if you join us for “FUSION’S GREATEST  
VOCAL HITS,” on this week’s edition of IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE
