During the past year Spotlight On Jazz and Poetry has featured some fantastic artists, both legendary and on the cusp of greatness in the world's of jazz and poetry. We've also held conversations with some of these wonderful musicians and poets, delving into their world and finding out why their respective artforms are important to them as well as our culture. We also held our third "LIVE" show "SILK SESSIONS" right here in Philadelphia, Pa. in October 2010.
We asked you, the listener's, to tell us what your favorite programs were in 2010 and what artists you truly enjoyed. Your feedback was incredible!
"Vibin' with a Lady" featuring Pheralyn Dove and Khan Jamal, "Silk N Soul" featuring Lou Rawls and Victor Fields, MJQ, Erroll Garner, "Silhouettes Spoken in Silver" featuring Horace Silver and Heidi Bacon and "Mingus In A Dream Deferred" featuring Langston Hughes and Charles Mingus, were a few of the SOJP programs you voted as some of the best of 2010.
We've compiled a program which we hope reflects these choices to the fullest.
My name is Clayton E. Corley, Sr. aka Big Trigger host and producer of an award winning internet program!
