HAPPY BRAZIL INDEPENDENCE DAY! ... Breaking News! Alexandra Jackson's &quo


HAPPY BRAZIL INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Breaking News!

On this very special day ... we are extremely excited to share that Alexandra Jackson's "STAGE" (featuring Earth, Wind & Fire Grammy, Rock and Roll, and Songwriter Hall of Fame members: Larry Dunn and Al McKay) has been added to iHeart Urban Adult Contemporary radio ... NATIONALLY!

You can check out Alexandra Jackson’s new song “STAGE” on iHeartRadio stations such as WVAZ-FM - Chicago.

As a featured single from the "Alexandra Jackson: Legacy & Alchemy" album "STAGE" will play 3 -or- 4 times per day across iHeart's Urban AC stations’ digital streams online.

"Stage" (Track 9 on the album) is the first-time English homage to Gilberto Gil's 1981 Brazil classic "Palco" ... which was a homage to EWF!

Recording in Rio de Janeiro 37 years later ... Alexandra Jackson and EWF's Larry Dunn and Al McKay turn to honor the great Maestro Gil.

THE BACK STORY

With Darryl Tookes' English ("Stage" lyrical) interpretation of the poetry of "Palco" in-hand ... Alexandra asked EWF's Larry and Al, Chicago's Darryl Jones, Maestro Charles Floyd, Danny Leake, Ed Cherney and Producer Robert Hebert, and super singers Tookes, Curtis King and Chris Walker to join her in honoring the great Gilberto Gil.

The Americans are joined by Brazil greats, the legendary drummer Teo Lima and percussionist Armando Marcal, and by Gustavo da Leite, Ricardo Silveira, Orquestra Atlantica (horns), and The Bossa Nova Noites Orquestra.

"STAGE" VIDEO released today!

We release today Alexandra Jackson's live video of "Stage" -- captured at Club France / French National Olympic House during the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

The new video features Brazil's superstar Bassist Arthur Maia, whose vital contributions to the production of "Stage" for the "Alexandra Jackson: Legacy & Alchemy" album assured that the essence and spirit of the original 1981 "Palco" was captured on this 2018 version.
