eurweb's A. Scott Galloway writes.....Best known as an original member of the pioneering band The Jazz Crusaders (later The Crusaders), Nesbert "Stix" Hooper has enjoyed an illustrious career as a musician, composer, record producer, artist manager, the first national Vice Chairman of the national Academy of recording Arts and Sciences (an unprecedented three terms with that Grammy organization) and icon of Contemporary Soul-Jazz drumming.

This month, he is adding radio show host to his hat collection with a Jazz program "Lay it On the Line," its title lifted from a song Hooper wrote for the Crusaders' album Unsung Heroes (Blue Thumb – 1973) which he later revisited as the title track of an album under his leadership circa 1989. On the radio, Hooper will be telling inside stories about heroes sung and unsung on his program which debuts Wednesday, November 17, 9 P.M. PST on 88.1KJAZZ - Los Angeles.
