A mix of Jazz-Fusion, “Fonk” (not funk!) and old school R&B with an emphasis on bands with tight rhythm sections and dynamic horn sections.
The show, hosted by Barry Jackson, includes interviews with local, national and internationally-renowned artists on a regular basis. Barry has had the pleasure of interviewing such artists as the founding members of the Tower of Power, George Duke, Jean Luc Ponty, Tiger Okoshi, Billy Cobham and many others.
Barry: “Being a former musician (but still a musician at heart!), I’d like to think of the Thursday Morning Buzz as not just for music lovers, but for the musician in all of us!”
Tune in and groove with me. You never know what’s in store, but I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
I host the “Thursday Morning Buzz – The Fusionfunkmeister,” which emphasizes the genres of jazz/Fusion and Funk! You will not only hear the golden oldies of the genres of Funk and Fusion, but you’ll hear the new projects and I’ll share some facts about the artists and the music.
You hear interviews done with the artists who helped originate the music, and the up and coming, local artists, who are keeping up the traditions of the genres.
