Hi, I'm Tony Minvielle Presenter of FOLDEDSPACE on www.SoulandJazz.com.
My passion for music started as a teenager of 14 working part time in a vibrant record shop in south London many years ago. I became involved with the London soul and jazz dance scene as the years progressed. My passion for djing, writing and broadcasting continued during my student years based in the Midlands (UK) presenting radio shows at college stations and promoting live and club nights. I've had residencies at Londons Jazz Cafe, the legendary Cafe Del Mar in Ibiza and appeared at many festivals. I’ve also written many articles for the iconic magazine Straight No Chaser including an unforgettable interview with the late great Curtis Mayfield. I moved to Atlanta in the nineties and was a co-presenter on WCLK (the home of jazz). It was at that time – via an organisation called Groovement that I became involved in helping to launch the fledgling careers of many Atlanta based artists including India Arie and Anthony David.
I moved back to the UK via a short time living in Warsaw Poland and became part of BBC Radio 1 Gilles Petersons Worldwide family and also presented shows for the Virgin Radio digital network in the UK.
During my long and varied journey I count myself as blessed to have managed to meet and work with all my heroes and heroines including Mark Murphy, Roy Ayers, Weldon Irvine, Gil Scott Heron, Curtis Mayfield, India Arie, Jon Lucien, Courtney Pine, Sade and Incognito, Pharoah Sanders, KOOP, Joy Rose, Jazzanova , Khari Cabral Simmons to name only a few.
I am now proud to say that I’m a presenter on SoulandJazz.com producing and presenting a show called FOLDEDSPACE which I see as the culmination of all my influences over the many years I’ve been involved in this music. It crosses all the boundaries between Jazz (my first love), Soul, Latin and Brazilian and covers the old, the new, the classic and the innovative.
You can find me on Facebook as Tony Minvielle and there is a specialist page Foldedspace on SoulandJazz.com (presented by Tony Minvielle) containing some great links which are jazz and soul related. More info can be found at www.capricioussessions.com
