The Jody Watley “Still A Thrill” Radio Celebration from The Wayne Boucaud Show, UK Black in 3D is now available on Mixcloud as a podcast. Listen again or for the first time!
Wayne did an excellent job on curating a few classics and a host of deep cuts and collaborations beyond the commercial realm with snippets of vintage interviews sharing pearls of wisdom, goals and determination with a desire to always be me and never confined to expectations or narrow vision. You’ll enjoy the entire show..and be reminded that there is still quality music being made – soul, jazz, funk and you can still mix them up into a delicious musical brew with the classics, under the radar gems.
It’s been such a great year of music for me solo (the Top 10 Smooth Jazz ‘Waiting In Vain’ and with SRL (Soul Revolution Love), “The Passion”, “The Mood” Alex Di Cio’ mixes coming with massive UK radio support; and the announcement of my first UK Tour in over 20 years. It means the most to have it be fueled by what’s new while celebrating what’s past.
The vibe of the song has a subtle update with additional drums and guitar by remixed Italy’s Alex Di Cio’ and as a bonus new artwork for the devoted Jody Watley music appreciator and fan arriving at digital December 7, 2018. Think of it as musically warm cocoa in front of a cozy fireplace.
As we say good-bye to summer and welcome autumn I want to thank everyone who came out to see me and SRL during the Spring/Summer seasons.
Both seasons were great for the music with “Waiting In Vain” making it into the Top 10 Smooth Jazz in America and Jody Watley & SRL having two back to back Soul Chart hits with “The Mood” and “The Passion” Alex Di Cio mixes and now heading into autumn the Brian Power Remix has really kicked things into another gear in the U.K. Today alone we received play on 8 BBC stations – 8! Heavy play is coming from Mi-Soul kicking off today with Part 1 of my interview with the one and only Mike Vitti-Part 1 because our scheduled 10 minute chat turned into an hour. I joked that I was a regular “Chatty Cathy” that day. I’ll post the archive link as soon as available.
To one and to all : Stay in your magic, that’s what I’m always trying to do so on the good and not so good days (we all have them).. don’t let life and the world get you down.
Believe in miracles and the magic within and take that into the world with love in actions – we need it now more than ever.
As the summer winds down and we head into September and autumn months, Brian Power, one of the UK’s most respected remix producers has given the hit single “The Passion” a soulful house makeover for the next season as the original Top 3 UK Soul Chart Alex Di Ciò mix is still in rotation. The new remix debuted today on Jazz FM with Jeff Young.
