ROCKWIRED.COM'S LATEST EDITION OF JAZZED AND BLUE PRESENTS: NATIVE AMERICAN JAZZ COMBO RED HOT & RED AND MUSIC FROM CURTIS STIGERS, THE DANGLING SUCCESS AND HULON
(Published: August 14, 2011)

The latest edition of Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz is now available for download at Rockwired.com and features music and an exclusive interview with drummer Louie Speaking Eagle of the New Mexico-based jazz combo Red Hot and Red. In this opening segment, Speaking Eagle discusses working with pianist Steve Figueroa and bassist Rob "Milo" Jaramillo of Red Hot and Red, connecting with the audience and their plans to cut an official release on their terms. The second half of this edition of Jazzed and Blue will feature music from such jazz and blues artists as Dee Dee Bridgewater, Hulon, Curtis Stigers, Veronneau, Luba Mason and more. "Listeners have really taken a liking to the free form segment of the show and quite honestly so have I." 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."

Formed in 2009 in Albuquerque, N.M., Red Hot & Red is history's premier all Native American Jazz trio - following the steps of the Redhouse family - the First Native American Family of Jazz, and past Native Jazz musicians like Illinois Jacquet, Jim Pepper, and Oscar Pettiford to name a few. A New Mexico native of Laguna Pueblo heritage, pianist Steve Figueroa has been an integral part of the Albuquerque music scene for over 20 years. His primary focus is Jazz and Afro-Cuban music, but he is adept at many different styles and has performed with a variety of groups and artists, including Tetragon, Ritmo Caliente, The New Shtetl Band, Sparx, Lorenzo Antonio, the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra, Clark Terry, Frank Morgan and Doug Lawrence, among others. Isleta Pueblo's Rob "Milo" Jaramillo, has been an in-demand bassist in the New Mexico area for over 20 years. Equally adept at performing on either the acoustic or electric bass, he is also known for being one of the most versatile and eclectic bassists on the local scene - as comfortable playing Jazz as he is playing Latin, R&B, Rock, World Music, and Reggae styles. Drummer Louie Speaking Eagle, a Zacatec Indian ceremonial leader, is an international Jazz artist and music educator. He has performed with pianists Dino Fiumara Jr., founder of Jazz for Peace Rick Dellaratta, Japanese pianist Yoshi Sato, as well as with legendary bassist John Heard, with whom he recorded a 2005 concert in El Paso, Tx. Due to perform and record a follow up CD with John Heard in 2012, Speaking Eagle will release his first official CD as a solo artist in 2011.
