Musical Artist, Producer, Composer, Recording Engineer, Recording Studio
Tell us a little about your background...
An encounter with Keith “Bubby” Webb’s music is like having a bowl of piping hot gumbo—you get a variety of flavors! He can fuse R&B, jazz, hip-hop, rock, and gospel—or use them one at a time. Bubby is a funky drummer, organic keyboardist, soulful composer, bumpin’ producer, and a master recording engineer who is bound to have you lining up for seconds.
Drumming started it all. He was inspired by his father, Johnny Borders, Jr. (former drummer of Orange Lake Drive), and his uncle, Larry Webb, who was also a percussionist. From age five, Bubby would accompany his father to all the rehearsals and gigs he could. He even sat in from time to time and played a song or two with his dad’s band. His uncle made sure he listened to great jazz drummers like Dennis Chambers and Dave Weckl. His father’s very powerful musical style often reminded him of a thunderstorm or a stampede of wild horses. On the other hand, the way his uncle tapped his drums was smooth, slick and full of finesse. He chose to echo both of them until he was thirteen years old.
A year later, when he was introduced to the keyboard, he started to come into his own. Sequencing and sampling took his mind by storm and sent him into the world of music production. Although he did not have his own synthesizer, he would go to Logic Sound, the only studio in his hometown of Pontiac, Michigan to compose his songs. He mastered the Roland D-20 by the time he turned sixteen. Then, he formed Beatmob Productions with his friend, Frank “B-Nice” Williams. Frank’s mom financed their first keyboard. Bubby made the beats and Frank came up with the samples. Beatmob produced one of the first hip-hop jazz tracks for a horn player named Quincy Stewart. Bubby has also produced tracks for hip-hop heavyweights Redman and Slum Village. Most recently, he produced the single “Forever and a Day” for Universal Motown R&B recording artist, Suai, which helped her get signed to that label. He has also collaborated with Stevie J., a producer from Bad Boy Entertainment, and many others. In addition, Bubby has toured as a drummer in the United States and abroad with artists such as Dwele, Slum Village, Calvin Richardson, Jaguar Wright, Kindred the Family Soul, The Temptations, and soul legend Charles Walker.
Currently, Bubby has a couple of things cooking. He is slated to release a smooth jazz compilation in spring 2009, which is a follow-up to his 2005 debut hip-hop CD entitled Bubby Bub Project: Make It Go. Besides that, he’s whipping up tracks under a production contract from Universal Records. Whether he’s laying a groove down on a track or slugging a beat on his Pearl Master Customs, Keith “Bubby” Webb has the sound that will have you coming back for more.

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Pianist and singer Barbara Carroll was host Marian McPartland's second guest during the first season of Piano Jazz. Thirty years later, Carroll makes a return appearance to reminisce with her friend about their experiences at the Hickory House and the Oak Room. Carroll gives a charming performance of "Very Early" and McPartland improvises a musical portrait of her guest.
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
