Iconic singer for The Babys and Bad English, Waite’s unmistakable voice places him in the top echelon of lead vocalists with hits like "Missing You," "Isn't It Time," and "When I See You Smile.” Waite notes that his new album, Rough & Tumble, is “…a step to the left. There’s a rock imprint on the music and a melodic presence, but it’s just shifted gears. It’s an extreme record…with an identity and a philosophy of its own.”
To inaugurate the 2011-12 jazz season at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., director of jazz Kevin Struthers wanted something special and different.

Jason Moran is one of the most talked-about pianists and composers of the past decade.

Moran opens this session with a song from his latest album, Ten, called "Blue Blocks" — a commission by the Philadelphia Museum of Art for an exhibition of quilts from Gee's Bend, Ala. The way Moran describes the quilts to host Jon Weber sounds very much like Moran's own music.

In 1970 Sixto Diaz Rodriguez, an American folk musician from Detroit, released Cold Fact, an album inspired by life, love, poverty and rebellion. The album saw slow sales and mixed reviews, and after trying and seemingly failing again with the album Coming from Reality, Rodriguez disappeared entirely from the public eye. Amid death rumors, Rodriguez and his music were becoming hugely successful on the other side of the world. In South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, Cold Fact went multi-platinum and became a cult classic.
