One day, perhaps one day soon, saxophonist Mindi Abair just might become the next big TV star. Thatís because Abair recently spent time in Philadelphia filming a pilot for a new TV show called Music In America. Abair says the show, which she is co-hosting with good friend and blues musician Kebí Moí, is basically about going to cities all across America to learn a little bit about each cityís musical history, its hot spots, and of course the current music scene.
While in Philadelphia, Abair interviewed Bobby Eli, a guitarist behind the Sound of Philadelphia scene in the 1970s. Although Music In America has not yet been sold for syndication, Abair says the show will soon be edited and shopped around.Posted by Brian Soergel at April 16, 2009 8:16 PM
