2015 kjazz musician spotlight

This week its all about Ian Raven

Ian Raven’s (aka Jan Walraven) music has featured on KJAZZ UK since its first year of broadcasting in 2011. Ian is a good friend of KJAZZ Radio UK and a friend of the founder. Ian’s music is featured all over the world in TV, movies and more.

Ian was born in the heart of Africa, raised in Germany and Belgium in the surroundings of a fully music oriented family: Ian’s grandfather was a director and music teacher, his mother a classical concert pianist and piano teacher and both of his brothers are in the music business, too, one as a violinist in a well-known symphonic orchestra in Germany, the other as a jazz guitar player and sound engineer at one of the major German public radios.

Ian learned the piano from the age of 6 and wrote his first pieces of music as a teenager. He produced his first albums in his early twenties and released more than a dozen CD’s with his music since.  Ian had the chance to write for very famous French singers like Viktor Lazlo (who incidentally has recently joined KJAZZ UK), Maurane and Muriel Dacq.

Canoë Rose, was a smash hit which he wrote in the late eighties.  Canoë Rose sold more than a million copies worldwide.

With three golden records and countless instrumentals for radio and television Ian Raven is a well known music composer and producer in France and beyond. Ian decided to relocate to the United States in 2003 and settled in Miami in August of 2004. A change of scenery was necessary. He spends his time recording in the US and also at the world famous ICP Studios in Brussels and working in Paris.

While the whole CD is a must have for your collection above this there are some great tracks that just stand out, “The Real Deal”, “Good Vibes” and a “A Night In Baltimore” are just some of our favorites.

The upbeat “House Party” does exactly what it says its upbeat sound with Hip Hop influences demonstrates this CD has something for everyone.  So if you want to relax or get your feet moving, “TLC” by Mark Mosley will do the job.

David King “Grace And Nature” from the CD “Flying Colours”.  Talented Scottish composer and guitarist David King’s music can be described as soulful melodies to edgier ambient textures, King’s music will absorb you and take you on a musical journey which will keep you interested throughout were proud to feature music from this great talent here on KJAZZ UK~ Source YouTube, KJAZZ UK (Paul Rumsey).

Mark Mosley – “Mark’s Mood”. His CD TLC is featured this week and so here is a video of Mark playing live demonstrating why we have selected his CD “TLC” to feature this week. ~ Source YouTube, KJAZZ UK (Paul Rumsey).

Gregg Karukas & Shelby Flint – “I keep it to myself.” It would be nice  when people posted a video they got the spelling correct.  That said this song is mellow and I first heard it on the CD “Wave Aid 06” which came out years ago.  I like the words which ring true as I have left LA for the UK. It is hard to believe that 11 years have gone by since I was living in LA~ Source YouTube, KJAZZ UK (Paul Rumsey).
Paul Rumsey's KJAZZ UK video of the week

Leo Rojas – “Celeste”. I  stumbled on  this little gem while looking up something else on YouTube Leo Rojas was born in Ecuador in 1984 and is best known for winning the 2011 season of the German talent show Das Supertalent.  Rojas lives in Berlin with his Polish wife; he started his career as a street musician until he found fame on the talent show. He became a contestant in the show’s fifth season winning the show with a cover of “Einsamer Hirte,” a hit song written by James Last and performed by Gheorghe Zamfir in 1977.  Maybe we should get him on KJAZZ UK to introduce his music to a wider audience? ~ Source YouTube, KJAZZ UK (Paul Rumsey).
