THE ALL NEW JAZZED AND BLUE PRESENTS:
ENDANGERED SPEECHES AND THEiR CD 'THE CiTY iS ROUGH'
AND MUSiC FROM RO SHAM BEAUX, OSCAR PEREZ,
GARY SMULYAN AND MORE!!!
http://www.rockwired.com/thecityisroughcd.jpgMARCH 18, 2012 - The weekly online radio series Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz is back and is now available for download at Rockwired.com and features an exclusive interview with keyboardist Michael Hurwitz of the the 13-piece, international band Endangered Speeches regarding their mesmerizing debut CD 'The City is Rough'.  In the opening segment, Hurwitz discusses the inspiration behind the tracks of their new project and the creative process  that brings about such compelling music. The second half of this edition of Jazzed and Blue will feature music from such jazz artists as Ro Sham Beaux, Jeff Hamilton Trio, Nick Moran Trio, Susan Krebs Band and more.  “After being gone for about three months, it is great to finally be back and doing this show again. " says Jazzed and Blue host Brian Lush. “It's a real treat to end a long week with a show like this and to kick back and listen to some great music."

Endangered Speeches, the creative brainchild of Greek MC/singer/composer/arranger Mariletta Konstantara, aims to restore a meaningful message and forward direction to hip-hop music. Rooted equally in hip-hop and reggae, the Endangered Speeches sound is characterized chiefly by the unique global view brought by each of its 13 members. Although Drum n’ Bass, Dub, Ska, Soul and Rebetika (traditional Greek music), all contribute toward a diverse sound, the cemented rhythm section, airtight horns, and four-part vocal harmonies build a sound both unbreakable and unmistakable.

Founded in 2008, it took a year until the band’s lineup solidified. Now, under the direction of the native Athenian, the group is equipped to bring their signature sound, style, and statement back to all the corners of the world that members call “home.” While Endangered Speeches formed at Berklee College of Music and currently call Boston their collective home, members hail from places as wide-ranging as Canada, Mexico, Norway, Greece, Africa, India and around United States, each with diverse musical experience.

Now, with the forthcoming release of the debut album, The City is Rough, the band moves determinedly forward, poised to bring the music “home.”

   ABOUT THE HOST:
http://www.rockwired.com/brian.JPGBRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn't looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED's way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. "Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable." says LUSH "But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I'd be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I'm the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions."
