Tuesday MidDay Medley
The Tuesday MidDay Medley is a mix of Jazz-Fusion, “Funk” (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 Tuesday Edition of The MidDay Medley 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 “Tuesday MidDay Medley – 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.
Tuesday MidDay Medley: Celebrated Jazz Bassist Ron Carter! December 22, 2015 | 10:00 am
The Fusion Funkmeister is thrilled to welcome bassist, composer, and bandleader Ron Carter! With over 2,221 recordings under his belt, Ron Carter is the most recorded jazz bassist in history!
Although, I am not an active musician, many of the local artists won’t let me call myself a former musician! I have been a local musician who has played the trombone with many local, regional and nationally known acts, such as Eddie Baker’s New Breed Orchestra, Threatening Weather, and Mass Transit with Steven Harvey. (Steven was murdered in 1980.) I have also been a music editor for a local newspaper, “The Kansas City Globe.”
