> My fellow MOJANS! Russ here to tell you that starting this week, Tuesday to be specific, at Noon ET/9 AM West, I will debut a special feature that has been percolating in my mind for awhile now called ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS!  A complete description of the show is below and I hope you'll catch it one of the five times it airs each week! 
>  
> 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, Medeski, Martin & Wood, John Scofield and the great artists of the North West like Skerik, and San Francisco-area groove artists like Charlie Hunter, The Broun Fellinis & Will Bernard. The movement includes bands like The Motet, Niacin, String Cheese Incident, Derek Trucks Band, Jazz Mandolin Project and so many more! It’s jazz mixed with prog rock and punk, funk and groove, heavy metal and alternative rock. The fans of this music don’t need lyrics, they need the groove and you’ll get it all if you join us for ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS five times each week on MOJA Radio!

> Now here’s a rundown of the other great stuff coming your way this week on “The World’s Modern Jazz Radio Channel!”

> MOJA Radio/WEEKLY FEATURES   (14-20 February 2011)
> 
> This Monday, February 14th, we’ll present another edition of our special feature, MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS on MOJA Radio. This time the focus is on one of the most celebrated pianists, composers and bandleaders in MOJA and all of jazz history, CHICK COREA, as we spend the week in celebration of the newest incarnation of his supergroup, Return To Forever, featuring Chick, Stanley, Lenny and new members Jean-Luc Ponty and Frank Gambale under the name RTF IV. You’ll hear of his career beginnings working with Miles Davis and how Miles led him into electric jazz and fusion.  You’ll hear about his emergence as a leader and his work with Return To Forever, as well as the Chick Corea Elektric and Akoustic Bands, Origin, Touchstone and more. 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 a musician that is truly one of the most beloved in jazz history, the great CHICK COREA!
> 
> 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!

Then there’s a new CD from Paris-based Korean vocalist Youn Sun Nah titled Same Girl that defies category.  We’ll wrap it up with more from three albums we debuted last week,  Keys To The City, the new CD from the group New York Electric Piano, As You Like from the all-star band called BANN featuring guitarist Oz Noy and Seamus Blake on sax, and the Geoffrey Keezer-Peter Sprague Band with Mill Creek Road.

> 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.  This week we’ll focus on two men with the same first name and two different horns who made some very interesting fusion history as we present a special feature called “TWO GUYS NAMED EDDIE: HARRIS & HENDERSON.” Eddie Harris played sax and wrote some of the most famous songs in jazz history like Listen Here, Freedom Jazz Dance and Cold Duck Time. But his success and resistance to stay in the traditional mold made him a jazz outlaw…just our kinda guy! Eddie Henderson played trumpet with Herbie Hancock, Gary Bartz, Pharoah Sanders and others, but his use of electronics during the fusion era confounded the purists as he created his own style of fusion we call Psychedelic Soul-Jazz. Together they wrote one of the most interesting chapters in Fusion. Listen for “TWO GUYS NAMED EDDIE: HARRIS & HENDERSON,” on this week’s edition of IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.
> 
> This Saturday as we present our weekly feature WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio we’ll celebrate a brand new feature here on MOJA Radio with a special we call “WE’RE TALKIN’ JAZZY JAMBANDS HERE!” Join Russ Davis as we spend the day talking to some of the artists who have put a funky, jazzy spin on the Jamband movement and by doing so added a marvelous facet to the brilliant jewel that is MOJA. Some reluctantly engaged in the movement as they are more jazz than jamband, but the excitement of the fans is enormous and the energy they produce has helped invigorate the musicians, and we’ll talk to some of them including John Scofield, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Skerik, Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore, Will Bernard, Brian Haas of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Christian McBride, Mike Dillon, Karl Denson, Robert Walter and Dr. Lonnie Smith. Interview segments followed by music will begin each hour from Noon through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific).  “WE’RE TALKIN’ JAZZY JAMBANDS HERE,” on this week’s WORDS & MUSIC.
>
