Today’s guest deejay is Amina Claudine Myers.
Amina is a pianist, organist, vocalist, composer, and arranger.
Amina will tell us about her childhood and how she became a professional musician on today’s show. She has great stories about some of the amazing people she’s performed with. Amina will also talk about receiving the Arts for Art’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Living Legacy Jazz Award from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in 2021.
Amina’s mix features music she loves and select tracks from her albums and live performances. One of Amina’s songs made my co-producer Jason Smith weep, and another one of her songs raised the hair on the back of my neck. I think you’ll be similarly affected.
The interstitial music on today’s show is “Blessings” from the Women in (E)Motion album by the Amina Claudine Myers Trio.
The Amina Claudine Myers Trio will be performing a homage to David Hammons at The Bourse de Commerce Pinault Collection Auditorium in Paris Wednesday, February 9.
Join us next week when our guest deejay will be rock and blues songwriter, guitarist, and freelance multimedia producer Jon Butcher.
