Here we are at the beginning of a brand New Year with so much beauty ahead of us. Everyone has resolutions, new ideas, new projects, new ways of thinking and being and the real question is, “What are we going to do to contribute” to our planet? Well, All Music Television and Sonos Studios has gotten off to a great start with the first iteration of the All Music Television Network!
Today we conducted interviews with some monsters in the music who are carving out paths of honesty, beauty and grace with their music and their accomplishments. Sonos Studio is onboard with the concept for a new television network. 2014 Thelonious Monk Trumpet Competition winner Marquis Hill, pianist Kris Bowers and rapper Cash L3wis all came by the studio to share their knowledge,wisdom and stories about the music.
Right off a direct flight from Philly and straight to the studio, Los Angeles’ very own Kamasi Washington joined host LeRoy Downs to talk about the new album, playing on the road with Chaka Khan and Harvey Mason and the life of a creative musician!
The brainchild of television producer Fredrick Smith is to create a television network where people can come and experience all kinds of music.
Not one that repeats and concentrates on the same popular music that you always hear, but one where young people are speaking, creating, singing and playing music that moves a new generation!
Patricia Cage is the other host and she spent some great time getting to know Kris Bowers and the impetus behind the the multifaceted pianist. Coming soon to a television near you! All Music Television! We will keep you posted!!!
