> This Monday, May 23rd, 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 popular, active and unique guitarists, composers and bandleaders in MOJA, CHARLIE HUNTER. On the very day that Charlie turns 44 we’ll wish him a Happy Birthday and share his story with you for an hour. You’ll hear of his beginnings growing up in the San Francisco Bay area, how busking on the streets in Europe helped him formulate the idea to play the 7 and 8 string guitars he’s become so famous for.  You’ll also hear some of his many all-star collaborations and his emergence as a leader in the mid-‘90’s. 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 a kind, the great CHARLIE HUNTER!

> 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!

> 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 Friday, May 27th, we’ll continue our week-long celebration of the birthday of the man who is probably the most famous jazz man of all time with a special feature we call “MILES DAVIS’S GREATEST FUSION HITS!” Many point to “Bitches Brew” as the album that caused the fusion revolution to explode, but three years before that Miles had begun to explore new musical territory by  changing from swing rhythms and electrifying his sound on albums like 1967’s “Water Babies” (which wasn’t released until 1977), 1968’s “Filles De Kilimanjaro,” and 1969’s “In A Silent Way,” before the true explosion occurred in 1970 with McLaughlin’s electric guitar on “A Tribute To Jack Johnson,” and electricity and groove unlike anyone had ever heard before on “Bitches Brew.”  After that all bets were off and Miles, as well as the jazz world in general, never truly looked back!  You’ll hear it all if you join us for this week’s edition of IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION. It’s “MILES DAVIS’S GREATEST FUSION HITS!”
>  
> We’re celebrating the 85th birthday of Miles Davis and his place in MOJA all this week so this Saturday, May 28th, we’ll celebrate Miles and learn more about him by getting the perspective of some of those who knew him best as we present our weekly feature WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio this one titled “TWELVE GOOD MEN WHO PLAYED WITH MILES!” Anyone who ever played with Miles learned a lot and were never the same after the experience.  You’ll hear all about Miles from Chick Corea, Bill Evans, Dave Holland, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, Kenny Garrett, Lenny White, Marcus Miller, Mike Stern & Wayne Shorter.  Interview segments followed by music will begin each hour from Noon through Midnight Eastern time (9 AM-9 PM Pacific).
