20140926_221025The 99th catalog coverASALH Convention in Memphis, TN, was a great success.  Not only did I distribute over 500 Women in Arts & Women in Business Catalogs, introducing people to our organization, members, and business associates, but I delivered my paper Blues Women: The First Civil Rights Workers to an enthusiastically responsive audience in the Louis XVI Room at The Peabody Hotel, on Thursday, September 25, 2014.
BluesWomen
I visit the infamous Blues mecca BEALE STREET, where I listened to the music of two lovely vocalists Adrianne Dotson and Shay-Renae, who agreed to play songs from our compilation CDs III and IV on her radio show! The most exciting news is that the 100th ASALH Convention will be in Atlanta in 2015, and I will be on the Volunteer Committee and invite our WIJSF Atlanta members to join me in supporting this tremendous organization.

MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
jc-dinahwashingtonwayspeakerCALLING ALL WOMEN COMPOSERS! The deadline to submit your original composition for the WIJSF Music Collection V is October 15. We have 7 spots left, so do not procrastinate. Contact Joan at divajc47@yahoo.com ASAP!!! The flier with all the details is at the bottom of this blog.
The newsletter is a few days late this month, due to my return from Chicago, where I had the honor of speaking at the street naming ceremony of Dinah Washington Way on August 29.  What a great day that was. So many Jazz seniors were in attendance and I got to meet a lot of Facebook friends face-to-face like two of our members saxophonist Diane Ellis and Alvin Carter-Bey, the producer of the event, and Senabella Blue, the Mistress of Ceremony, Sasha Daltonn, producer of Sasha Sings Dinah, several of Dinah’s family members, and vocalists Dee Alexander and Maggie Brown, daughter of the legendary lyricist/vocalist Oscar Brown, Jr.  Then, on August 30, I had the privilege of doing a book signing at the DuSable African American Museum, where I met some wonderful Chicagoans and Ohioans, who purchased my books and our compilation CDs. Thanks to Deborah Collins for facilitating this opportunity for me! Finally, I attended the John Wright Jazz Party in Matteson, IL, where I met more Jazz-loving Chicagoans and had a terrific time, listening to the music of resident musicians and vocalists with Al Carter-Bey! What a great week!

Ragan Whiteside – Flutist, Vocalist, Songwriter |  212-561-0253  | www.raganwhiteside.com www.facebook.com/raganwhitesidemusic, www.twitter.com/raganwhiteside

QUANTUM DRIVE is available at Amazon.com

New Video: “Work it Out” Performance clips:

RAGAN WHITESIDE is a CONTEMPORARY JAZZ FLAUTIST AND VOCALIST. She released QUANTUM DRIVE on JULY 8. Quantum Drive is her third studio release, fusing the coolest elements of Contemporary Jazz, Classic R&B, Neo-Soul, and Hip-Hop, appealing to musicians and music lovers. Collaborating with Ragan are Contemporary Jazz Keyboardist and Arranger Bob Baldwin, Soul Singer-Songwriter and Pianist Frank McComb, Soul Jazz Flutist Althea René, and multi-Grammy Award nominated Singer, Pianist, and Composer Patrice Rushen, who lent her keyboard wizardry to Ragan’s remake of her classic tune, “Remind Me”. QUANTUM DRIVE offers a clever and unique way of unifying generations of music. From the 60’s jerk-worthy “Soul Biscuit” to the Dirty South line-dancing “Work it Out” to the underground club-hopping “Quantum Drive,” there is always something to make you nod your head. “Smokey Room” satisfies your inner jazz fusion-ista while “Like the First Time” embodies the best aspects of falling in love. Ragan Whiteside’s groove driven artistic approach to this musical journey will certainly propel you into a new dimension. Strap yourself in and close your eyes as she takes you down the road to infinite soul on her QUANTUM DRIVE. Available on Amazon and iTunes. For info visit www.raganwhiteside.
