"I’ll be performing compositions from an old sketch book I recently found and the music of Roberto Miranda. Roberto’s a professor of music at UCLA (he teaches bass, theory, etc.), a gifted composer, bass virtuoso, and spiritual mentor of mine for many years.
Roberto released his CD With Groaning Too Deep for Words in 2002.
As a young player Roberto studied with (J)azz legends Ray Brown, Red Mitchell, and master classical musicians Bob Stone, Dennis Trembly and Fred Tinsely of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. While studying for his M.M. at USC, he received two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. These grants enabled him to score two compositions for symphony strings, (J)azz bass, bassoon, and trombone, one of which was performed by the Carson Symphony Orchestra.
Drummer Fritz Wise born Texas grew up listening to Jazz and r&b. move to Los Angeles and went to Locke High which was well known for it's (J)azz program where such artist like Patrice Rushen, Ndugu Chancler, Munyoungo Jackson etc .
Fritz has played and recorded such artist like Nate Morgan, Horace Tapscott, Gary Bias, Azar Lawrence just to name a few. Whether he's a rousing tour de force, stoking the fire or resorting to his palette of serene colors, drummer Fritz Wise compliments any setting. His versatile approach embraces several genres from Funk to Jazz and just about everything in between. Fritz and I go way back to the Jazz Nite Flight a (J)azz program on KXLU in Los Angeles.
As usual, I’ll be serving gourmet teas." - B.McC.
