Today we speak live with Alan Kimara Dixon about his latest release "intro to modern," released a month ago to date: Nov. 7-Dec. 7.
It features: Bobby Bradford: cornet, Bennie Maupin: bass clarinet and alto flute and Alan Kimara Dixon: composer / guitars, basses, keyboards and drums. Visit http://introtomodern.com/album/intro-to-modern Kimara says it is his hope that his art moves his audience to "transcend circumstance or culture and broaden perspectives" http://www.alankimaradixon.com
We then listen to two recorded interviews. The first is with publishers: Sandra Redmond, her big brother, Willie F. Redmond or "June," and Deirdra Wilson, together: San'Dei'Jun Publishing, "an independent publishing house based in California that provides "space for creativity to spring forth from grass-roots of our communities and fertilize our collective soil of mind and heart." http://www.sandeijun.com/about/
Music: From intro to modern "tech rehearsal" and "appreciation." We also play KebMo's "Imagine" and Chinakare's "Tanzania." See http://www.blogtalkradio.com/wandas-picks/2012/12/07/wandas-picks-radio-show
