> This Monday, April 25th, we’ll present another “Happy Birthday” edition of our special feature, MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS on MOJA Radio. This time the focus is on one of the most important guitarists in jazz today, STEVE KHAN, just three days before the day that marks his 64th birthday. You’ll hear all about his beginnings in Los Angeles and his move to New York City during the fusion era to work with The Brecker Brothers, the beginnings of his solo career, his contribution to the fusion era, his love of Latin music and of course hear a full hour of his brilliant music. 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 this week we place our spotlight on the great, STEVE KHAN!

> In the Mid-1980’s when fusion had faded and the softer side of things began to permeate the radio with the emergence of contemporary jazz, a fun, up and funky trend sprang out of the clubs and concert halls of England that brought new life to jazz.  If you’d like to hear some just listen to our special feature THIS IS ACID JAZZ four times each week on MOJA Radio! You can hear it twice every Tuesday at 9 AM and again at 9 PM EST and twice on Sunday’s at 9 AM & 9 PM EST as part of the Sunday Specials.  The phrase Acid Jazz came from the famous English DJ Gilles Peterson and each week you’ll hear not only the music of the English groups he discovered, but artists from the USA and around the world that joined in on a movement whose repercussions still reverberate today, and the words of Mr. Peterson himself! So if you can’t get enough of that funky stuff come and get it on THIS IS ACID JAZZ four times each week on MOJA Radio!
>  
> Back in the day when rock bands like The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band took their songs on long, improvised journeys and in essence incorporated jazz elements, the stage was set for what became a major part of what we call MOJA…jambands and especially those who set out primarily to make jazz.  If you’d like to hear some just listen five times each week to the newest feature on MOJA Radio, ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS! You can hear it at NOON East/9 AM West every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, plus twice on Sunday at NOON Eastern/9 AM Pacific and Midnight EAST/9 PM West as part of the Sunday Specials.  Following The Dead & The Allmans came Phish then grunge from Seattle.  At the same time American Acid Jazz artists like Karl Denson & Robert Walter started attracting the same fans. Those fans began to follow Galactic and other new artists from NOLA, as well as Medeski, Martin & Wood, John Scofield and the great artists of the North West like Skerik, and San Francisco-area groove artists like Charlie Hunter & Will Bernard! It’s jazz mixed with prog rock and punk, funk and groove, heavy metal and alternative rock. It’s ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS five times each week on MOJA Radio!
>  
> LIVE @ MOJALand happens four times each week here on MOJA Radio as we invite you to join us inside the world’s only imaginary jazz club for rare, live performances by the biggest names in Modern Jazz.  Listen Wednesday morning at 9 AM/6 AM Pacific and again Wednesday night at 9 PM Eastern/6 PM Pacific, and twice again on Sunday at 11 AM & 11 PM Eastern, as part of the Sunday Specials. This week we’ll take you to New York City’s Merkin Hall, a place where the fare is usually classical music, but this time it’s something completely different as we present TIM HAGANS, BOB BELDEN & ANIMATON: ASIENTO LIVE. With the help of MOJA greats like DJ Logic, Matthew Garrison, Scott Kensey and others, Mr. Hagans & Mr. Belden revisit some of Miles Davis’s finest tunes from the beginnings of the fusion era and put then own spin on them. You’ll hear the Miles classic Bitches Brew re-imagined when you join us for TIM HAGANS, BOB BELDEN & ANIMATON: ASIENTO LIVE, this week on LIVE @ MOJALand!

Then we’ll celebrate the start of the New Orleans Jazz Fest with more music from the new Rebirth Brass Band album Rebirth Of New Orleans. Then, as part of our weeklong celebration of Steve Khan’s 64th birthday, we’ll give you cuts from his new album Parting Shot featuring Steve and his usual all-star cast of players and even his first recorded vocal performance. We’ll wrap things up with two songs from the new release from Tim Hagans, Bob Belden & Animation titled Asiento which is a live recording from 2006 at New York’s Merkin Hall featuring Tim, Bob along with DJ Logic, Matt Garrison and others in a re-imagination of Miles’ Bitches Brew.

> This Saturday we’ll continue our celebration of the 64th birthday of one of MOJA’s greats as we present our weekly feature WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio this one titled “STEVE KHAN: PARTING SHOT!” It seems whenever Steve Khan has a new album release it coincides with his birthday and since April 28th has come again Steve invited me to sit down in his apartment on the upper West Side of Manhattan to talk about this brilliant new album that just may be as fine a work as he’s ever created. You’ll hear the stories of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of his work with old pals Anthony Jackson, Dennis Chambers, Rob Mounsey, Marc Quinones, Bobby Allende and Manolo Badrena and other special guests from Argentina. Interview segments followed by all the songs from this great, new album will begin each hour from Noon through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific). Join us for “STEVE KHAN: PARTING SHOT,” on this week’s WORDS & MUSIC.
