News: Island Jazz Featured on CBC’s Hot Air

April 21, 2009

CBC’s national arts producer Paul Grant recently interviewed Island Jazz publisher Rick Gibbs for Hot Air, the longest-running jazz radio program in North America.

Clips from the interview, which focussed not only on the blog but more generally on Vancouver Island’s jazz scene, can be heard on the Hot Air website as part of the April 18th broadcast.

In this broadcast Grant features Vancouver Island performers like Marc Atkinson, Hugh Fraser, Phil Dwyer and Miranda Sage, pointing out that the Island is a remarkable breeding ground of fine musicians.

    Sometimes I will be at work and listening to Emily Braden on myspace and get emotional and could weep. This must be what it is like to be such a fan, like all those girls before me who screamed and wept for Elvis. Seeing Emily Braden live is the ultimate thrill. She is incredibly sexy and beautiful and her vocal prowess is astounding.
