Tomorrow live@ 5pm on the Music of My Mind on CFUV, the sweet brazilian guitar sounds of Toronto’s Erez Sussman. Sussman, the brother of local drummer and MoMM regular “Groovin” Reuven Sussman, will be my co-host in studio for the first half of the program, sharing some of his favorite tunes and will also be playing live from his new album the Mighty Cedar (do I detect a West Coast influence?!?). Sussman is playing Friday night (Oct 7) in Victoria @ Hermann’s. Check out this video of his CD release to see what he’s all about.
The countdown to Victoria International Jazzfest 2011 is on. With just 10 days left before the festival kick off on Friday June 24, the Music of My Mind on CFUV 101.9FM brings you our annual Jazzfest special this Thursday. New Jazzfest Communications Coordinator Kendra Martin will join me in studio for a chat about what we can expect from this year’s festival, her picks and great music from the likes of international stars Trombone Shorty and Robert Glasper as well as homegrown BC performers such as Adonis Puentes, Five Alarm Funk, Skyla J and the Vibes and much more.
