Hillary Clinton To Reportedly Fundraise For Marjorie Margolies, Chelsea Clinton's Mother-In-Law
Huffington Post - over 3 years
PHILADELPHIA - Hillary Clinton will be appearing next year at a fundraiser for Marjorie Margolies' congressional campaign in the Pennsylvania suburbs, according to Ken Smukler, who serves as a communications consultant for Margolies. Margolies, who is Chelsea Clinton's mother-in-law, is locked in a Democratic primary campaign against a strong progressive, state Sen. Daylin Leach, as well as two others. Margolies served one congressional term in the early 1990s. Longtime Margolies fundraiser Linda August, who attended Chelsea Clinton's wedding, also confirmed Clinton's upcoming appearance. "Hillary said from the beginning that she was not going to be political this year except for McAuliffe and family. She is scheduled to come in six months before the election. She is coming in just when we need her," said Smukler, who also serves as spokesman for the local Democratic party. "The Clintons are doing this for themselves as much as for Marjorie. They can't have a family member lose a ...

ELLIE GOULDING'S CATCHING FIRE WITH HUNGER GAMES' "MIRROR" For those who just arrived on the planet, the next installment of The Hunger Games movie franchise is Catching Fire, and one of the pieces featured on its soundtrack album will be Ellie Goulding's "Mirror" that presents perhaps our first taste of the musical mood of the movie. Check out this exclusive audio track... For more info: http://smarturl.it/CatchingFireiT NOT YOUR FATHER'S SMOOTH JAZZ Probably most everyone reading this piece who hasn't been keeping up on such things believes that "smooth jazz" is still sonic wallpaper, you know, light music that would numb one into submission at work, a soundtrack for trips to the mall, background music for meals, et cetera. However, I felt a little differently about the subject, and since I interviewed many of this genre's artists over the last few years, I figured I'd check out what truly was going on firsthand via Entertainment Cruise Productions' recent Smooth Jazz Cruise ...

Mike Ragogna: From Summer Horns to Napa Jazz: Conversations with Dave Koz and Brian Culbertson
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A Conversation with Dave Koz Mike Ragogna: Dave, it looks like you've got some friends with you on this new project! Dave Koz: Indeed! Old friends, dear friends, amazingly talented friends, but strangely enough, as long as we've known each other, we've never actually worked together on a project before. I'm talking about Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot and Mindi Abair, three phenomenal saxophone players at the top of their game. This album, the Summer Horns project was an album that was kind of floating around in my head for a long time. It was kind of in my musical DNA because the first record that I ever bought was Tower Of Power and that horn section sound kind of seeped into my musical psyche from the earliest days. It was my passion, my love, and it's actually what brought me to the saxophone to begin with. So I knew that at some point, there was going to be this album that would pay tribute to the horn section as part of modern music, and if you look at that ...

Osborne Classic A Success
This webpage is not available - over 4 years
Rhode Island already has the CVS Caremark Charity Classic but it looks like another local celeb is set to bring some serious star power to theOceanStateon a yearly basis. The inaugural Jeffrey Osborne Celebrity Classic was like many of Osborne’s best songs, a hit. WPRI/WNAC was the media sponsor of the event so we got to spend two days mingling with and interviewing the likes of Magic Johnson, Sinbad, Smokey Robinson and Johnny Gill to name a few.  In the world of sports coverage it’s easy to be numbed by the standard “Take it one day at a time”, “We won’t overlook any opponent” droning that we hear on a daily basis. The chance to chat with a platinum artist is a welcome change. Jeffrey, a wonderful man by the way, joined me for my six o’clock sports cast but the best conversation was off camera before the interview. Osborne told me his story about leaving Rhode Island when he was 19 to pursue his career in LA, living proof that dreams can come true if you’re willing to take a shot. ...
