There’s a “Whole Lotta NOLA Goin’ On” as this Sunday marks the end of the 2011 edition of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and we’ll celebrate with Galactic on LIVE @ MOJALand and some of the artists playing Jazzfest this year on Saturday’s WORDS & MUSIC.

Plus there’s all our other famous specials filled with Acid Jazz, Jazzy Jambands, and our general funky business as usual. So come enjoy, and spread the word about the joys of “The World’s Modern Jazz Radio Channel!” Read on…here’s what’s up this week!
>  
> This Monday, May 2nd, we’ll present another edition of our special feature, MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS on MOJA Radio. This time the focus is on possibly the most celebrated pianist and composer his country has ever produced, the man from The Dominican Republic, MICHEL CAMILO. You’ll hear of his career beginnings growing up in Santo Domingo where his unique blend of jazz, classical and Latin styles developed, and how a chance meeting with Voice of America jazz presenter Willis Conover and others led him to take the giant leap to New York City where his star quickly rose. You’ll hear how meeting the members of Manhattan Transfer led to a Grammy award and of course you’ll hear lots of his great 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 Latin Jazz king, MICHEL CAMILO!

> 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 Orleans to the famous Fairgrounds where the events of the Jazz & Heritage Festival take place.  It’s the first festival after the Hurricane Katrina disaster and you’ll hear some of NOLA’s hometown heroes take the stage to lift the city’s spirit as we present GALACTIC LIVE @ JAZZFEST 2006. Stanton Moore & the boys play some of their most famous tunes like Crazyhorse Mongoose, Go-Go, Black-Eyed Peas and Baker’s Dozen, then finish the set with the song that had everyone buzzing…a Galactic treatment of Led Zep’s When The Levee Breaks. You’ll hear the music and feel the spirit when you join us for GALACTIC LIVE @ JAZZFEST 2006, this week on LIVE @ MOJALand!

> Every Thursday at 9 AM east/6 AM West with a replay at 9 PM East/6 PM West, and twice again on Sundays at 10 AM & 10 PM Eastern, join Russ Davis as he gives you an hour of nothing but the freshest MOJA on THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE.  This week we’ll give you music suggested by one of the most active MOJANS in all of MOJA Nation, Ken Nero, who sent me the CD by a group he discovered known as The Jolley Brothers and we think you’ll enjoy music from Memoirs Between Brothers. You’ll hear saxophonist Andy Snitzer’s latest titled Traveler, as he creates songs inspired by the places in the world he’s seen. Then you’ll hear two great representations of orchestrated MOJA with Carlos and wife Allison Brewster Franzetti with the City of Prague Philharmonic on the album Alborada, followed by France’s Orchestre National De Jazz doing the music of John Hollenbeck on the album Shut Up And Dance. Then it’s a little of what’s being called “Chamber Jazz” from Joshua Redman and his new quartet featuring Aaron Parks, Matt Penman and Eric Harland with a new  group and album called James Farm. We’ll top things off with two new trios lead by artists we’ve heard before, The Alex Skolnick Trio with Veritaso followed by organist Joe Krown and the Joe Krown Trio and the album Triple Threat. So, if you want to hear the newest MOJA, just listen to THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE four times each week! Here’s the lineup for this week.

This Friday we’ll focus on some of the most famous songs in all of Fusion history with a special feature we call “THE TITLE CUT.” Just take a minute now and remember some of your favorite albums from the Fusion Era.  Now think in your mind what the title cut from that album sounds like and what thoughts it conjures.  Good times, huh?

You get the idea, so join us this Friday and you will probably hear one of your favorites too.  It’s “THE TITLE CUT,” the theme of this weeks edition of IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.

> This Saturday we’ll celebrate the 2011 edition of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival as we present our weekly feature WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio this one titled “FESTIVAL SEASON: FIRST STOP…NOLA!” The mantra of all lovers of the festival is “the last weekend in April, the first weekend in May!” That’s traditionally when everyone who can gathers in The Crescent City to celebrate life, funky music, good food and good times at Jazzfest, which in a way is the unofficial start of jazz festivals worldwide. This Saturday you’ll hear from the long list of MOJA greats who’ll be taking the stage at the Fairgrounds and at clubs all over town. You’ll hear from Brian Haas of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, guitarist Russell Malone, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Robert Walter who’s there with the Greyboy Allstars along with Karl Denson who also fronts his own band Tiny Universe.  Then it’s NOLA natives Terence Blanchard, Nicholas Payton, John “Papa” Gros and Stanton Moore who’s all over town with Galactic and Garage A Trois. Interview segments followed by music will begin each hour from Noon through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific). Join us for “FESTIVAL SEASON: FIRST STOP…NOLA,” on this week’s WORDS & MUSIC.
