 Groovin’ Wes (2009, Strong Brew Music), a Wes Montgomery tribute project and the fourth album from Jazz guitarist

Terrence Brewer, debuted March 2nd on the JazzWeek national radio chart at #18 and quickly began to climb, settling
into the Top 10 a few weeks later. Philip Van Vleck, writing for Billboard, states “(Brewer’s) guitar work is fluent, and his
feel for the groove is unerring…” Bill Milkowski, writing for JazzTimes proclaims, "(Brewer is) A melodic improviser with
an exquisite tone and an abundance of soul...", and the Philadelphia Daily News gave Groovin’ Wes an “A”. The accolades
for Groovin’ Wes come on the heels of receiving both regional and national acclaim for Brewer’s all original albums, The
Calling: Volume One and Volume Two (2006, Strong Brew Music) and QuintEssential (2008, Strong Brew Music), which
spent 12 weeks on the JazzWeek charts peaking at #17.
Along with media and chart success, and playing to sold out crowds at the world famous Yoshi’s at Jack London
Square, Yoshi’s San Francisco, Jazz At Pearl’s, and countless other venues, Brewer was honored with an invitation to
perform at the 52nd annual Monterey Jazz Festival. In addition to the Monterey Jazz Festival, Brewer played to
standing ovations at the Russian River Jazz Festival, SFJazz Festival, Fillmore Jazz Festival, and many others. In
addition to headlining his own shows, Brewer has worked with Michael McDonald (Doobie Brothers), Mary Wilson
(The Supremes), Gerald Albright, Dr. Anthony Brown, Pete Escovedo, Dave Ellis, Calvin Keyes, and has studied
with the likes of Charlie Hunter, Duck Baker, Tom Patitucci, Mark Levine, and others.
When Brewer is not touring regionally and nationally, he finds time to instruct master classes, clinics, and lectures for the likes
of Stanford Jazz Workshop and SFJAZZ, presenting at colleges, high schools, and middles schools throughout California.
With overwhelming regional support, Brewer establishes himself as a busy (over 2000 shows in the past seven years)
award-winning artist including SF Weekly Music Award for Best Jazz Artist, Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of
Commerce Artist of the Year and the Bay Area Blues Society “Best Jazz Group” Award, with more to come!
Born August 3, 1975 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Terrence DeRaun Brewer moved, at the age of eight, to Pittsburg, CA,
returning to his father's hometown, where he received his first opportunity to study music. In fourth grade, Brewer began
playing recorder, an instrument belonging to the flute family. It was that experience along with seeing the local middle and
high school bands perform that increased Brewer's desire to play a traditional instrument, which he did during his
transition to middle school. While attending Central Middle School, Brewer played the entire woodwind family (flute,
clarinet, and eventually saxophone) in both the symphonic and jazz bands contributing to the band winning several awards
at regional and state music festivals. In 1989, Brewer entered Pittsburg High School (PHS), known for it's longstanding
reputation as a formidable music school with intense music and creative arts programs. At PHS Brewer played in the
symphonic, jazz and marching bands, as well as jazz and symphonic small groups. In addition to winning several regional
and state awards with the school's bands and small groups, Brewer held the role of marching band drum major and
participated in several all-school drama performances, and presided as president of the schools Performing Arts Club. At
the age of fifteen, Brewer knew he wanted to be a professional musician; so, upon graduating high school in 1993, he
continued his musical education at Los Medanos College (LMC), also in Pittsburg, CA. It was while studying at LMC that
Brewer transitioned from a woodwind performance major to a guitar performance major studying classical and jazz guitar
performance. Brewer finished his Associate Arts degree at LMC in 1997. While at Los Medanos he studied with famed
Bay Area guitarist Mike Williams, New York jazz maestro Mike Zilber, and acclaimed classical guitarist Tom Pattitucci.
After leaving Los Medanos, Brewer continued his musical education by studying with the likes of Charlie Hunter, Duck
Baker, and Mark Levine.
Brewer has an extensive resume when it comes to jazz education. He has participated in various workshops and
performances hosted by Stanford Jazz Workshop. SFJAZZ also called upon Brewer to lecture and perform as a part of
their popular and prestigious “Discover Jazz” lecture series. Brewer’s lecture for SFJAZZ focused on “Bebop and Beyond
– Guitar greats Herb Ellis, Kenny Burrell, and Barney Kessel speak the language of bebop”. Brewer also taught
workshops, master classes, and given lectures for Santa Rosa Junior College, Los Medanos Community College,
Albany High School (Career day Lecture series and Job Shadowing program), Pittsburg High School, KIPP

A few words about Steve Edwards. . .

 

 

It was December 1999 when Steve Edwards landed on Las Vegas soil with one intention in mind– to invade American radio with his infectious tones and personality that welcomes everyone to the party.

 

His radio career kicked off whilst reading for his Human Biology degree. Then immediately upon graduation he entered the “underground” world of Pirate Radio. Steve escaped wearing the patch but didn’t get shipwrecked!! (not straightaway). A rebel with a cause, his drive to promote good music other than the top 40 became his mantra to specialize in all formats musical!

 

When the Pirate ship finally sunk, Steve’s vision was pursued (legally) with a 3 year stint at London’s only Jazz station, Jazz FM. Then came every DJ`s ultimate calling… The BBC!

 

It was his rise to the top as the National host of the Steve Edwards Soul Show where he interviewed everyone from Janet Jackson to Andy Summers of The Police. He also appeared on a variety of guest spots across “The Beeb” including Rock, Top 40 and Alternative music shows.

 

The journey continued with Steve taking the helm at a local London radio station as Music Director and Assistant PD. The contract was for one year and the time was ripe for Steve to realize a long time dream of working on American Radio.

 

That was twelve years ago and as a Las Vegas resident Steve has scored on- air/producer gigs with corporate radio giants like CBS RadioClear Channel and the Desert Sky Media Group.

 

Spinning from his personal collection, listeners will be able to stream live, kick back and enjoy the best of the new releases, classic cuts, exclusives and get a direct introduction to the core artists that have significantly shaped the contemporary Soul, Funk and Jazz music scene. Check out "This week On the Soul Show" weekly news letter(s) for a sneak preview of what’s coming up! Click on link listed in related websites for details. Hear the highlight of edition 22 featuring new music from the latest CD "Of The People, By The People, For The People" by Citizen Rhythm plus the music that made us sound great for the 2nd quarter of the 2012 series!.

Shabooyah! Roll Call is at your place!
