Jazz vocalist Charenee Wade began singing at 12 and learned from jazz luminaries such as Carmen Lundy and Christian McBride. Her clear voice and impressive technique landed her first runner-up in the 2010 Thelonious Monk competition, and she followed this success with her debut album, Love Walked In.

Joel Beckerman believes we are living in a golden age of sound: "We have these amazing opportunities to both set the tone and experiences for people, give them information in an instant," he tells NPR's Audie Cornish.
Beckerman is a composer who specializes in sonic branding — and we're not just talking about jingles. These are the sonic cues in commercials, the ambient music in coffee shops, in the beeps, dings and whoosh that occasionally flies from your cellphone. And companies are embracing it.
Below is the October 13th podcast of Acoustic Café.
Judith Owen returns this time to play songs from and talk about her new album “Ebb & Flow.” Seeking a decidedly 70s sound, Judith employed bassist Lee Sklar, drummer Russ Kunkel and guitarist Waddy Wachtel, 3 guys who made a big chunk of those classic early 70s records with Browne, Taylor, Zevon, Ronstadt, and hundreds more. As a special treat, Lee Sklar joined Judith for her Acoustic Café session and interview!
Listen to Acoustic Café on WPPB every Saturday from 8-10pm.
