Jiva – This Love

Many months ago the Doc and Professor attended a fabulous Isaac Hayes concert in London. At the end of the show we had the honour of meeting Rhonda Thomas. The Doc purchased her CD, and was lucky enough to have an interview with Rhonda. Back in Season 2 we played a gr8 song from her CD ‘Breath New Life’. Professor later learned on the Internet about a band she was in called Jiva. He located the band on myspace and got completely knocked out by their music. Thanks to Rhonda and Leon for sending us this the song. It is from their their 2007 CD entitled, ‘Day Into Night’. Please do check them out http://www.myspace.com/jivaonline and enjoy 3 wonderful tracks.

You can find out more about him from Wikipedia. The CD contains versions of his songs by artists such as Al Jarreau, Oleta Adams, Dave Grusin and Herbie Hancock as well as R&B and soul singer El Debarge with the late gr8 saxophonist Art Porter.

We end the show with Isaac Hayes. The featured song goes as far back as 1953, from a musical called Kismet, and has been covered by many artists including Johnny Mathis and Englebert Humperdink among 27 entries found in Youtube.

Until next time we hope we can trek back to your ears with a Jazz Funk Special episode.
