    A brand New Year for the world to discover Joe Leo Bwarie and Nothin but Love! The Umbrella track has been awesome but here comes Old Devil Moon to continue this musical magic, another flawless interpretation , another track that delivers!

    Nothin’ but love for JLB and his album. Beautiful orchestration to accompany his fantastic voice. see you in Oslo!

  3. Lee from maine   On   24. December 2011 at 11:35 PM

    Merry Christmas to PJR and to all JLB fans. My wish for the New Year is that an even greater audience awaits the talent of Joseph Leo Bwarie!

    Hi Lee – I don’t intend to answer for Mary P and her feelings about JLB – but I will add my 2 cents on the dynamite singer/actor JLB who is a force unto himself – when you see him live in JB’s he’s phenomenal, just wish we could see him in person doing his Nothin’ But Love! His voice is nothing but delicious.

    yippee i-o-kie-ay! I love the plate name… and you are in the same boat with most of us sprinkled with Joseph Leo Bwarie’s Magic-it’s an irresistible phenomenon-his voice, his personality, his whole persona creates joy and a need for more!
    Thank you PopJazzRadio for helping to spread the Bwarie magic and joy with his fantastic music and precious song Umbrella.
    Lee,We need to connect outside this process… I have been to Kennebunkport…I have a wonderful pastel of buildings in the town from a local artist- in my lving room. (not the artist, the painting! : )

  6. Lee from maine   On   12. December 2011 at 10:13 AM

    Hi Mary P….
    Bought myself a little present! I ‘m the mother of three, two of whom are older than JLB, but in a moment of adolescence I ordered new plates for my car! JZYBOYZ ! Makes me smile…makes my kids think I am certifiable!
    I live on the coast of Maine in Kennebunkport….RockPort is about11/2 hrs up the coast. I have never been to Iowa, but my daughter in law is from Vestina and they go every summer for a couple of weeks. It looks like a Norman Rockwell painting in their pictures. I also have a pair of sweat pants from the Iowa City FD…… Long story!
    So how did you first discover JLB? I know that he has a huge following as Frankie, I would love to see him recognized also for his amazing CD, his talent is undeniable but it is his ability to complete engage the listener that makes him special. I don’t know anything about Popjazz radio, but I ‘m listening and voting….and voting….and voting!

    Hello, Lee from Maine. I enjoy our little go-back-and-forths… don’t forget to Vote today for our favorite #1 PopJazzRadio VOICE-Joseph Leo Bwarie’s Voice is The Choice! I have a friend in Rockport, do you live on the coast or in-land? Your life and family sound scrumptious! Joseph Bwarie grew up with music and music-lovers in his home, too… “struck the right chord”, obviously! My mom brought music into my life in our home, too..Old Standards, Jazz, Big Band, Broadway music.. lucky us!
    Have a great day, Lee, and all followers of Pop Jazz Radio…PJR is great stuff!!!!

    Good to hear from you MaryPat! Grew up in England and listening to the BBC radio, morning,noon and night. Their eclectic mix of every genre of music. My father was a band major in the Royal Marines, my mother played Ray Charles on our first record player. I stood in line at Gatwick airport to welcome the Beatles back from the USA. I played Queen, Pink Floyd , Dusty Springfield, Barbara, the rat pack and Sammie Davis . West end shows and then Broadway….never met a musical I didn’t like. Moved to New and eventually to Maine and so when the show opened I promised myselfa trip back too see “the Boys”. I have now been three times and follow the Tour because there is no other Frankie for me. Finding “Nothin but Love” was a thrill, Joseph Leo Bwarie presents his music with such joy it’s impossible not to go along for the ride. I hope we are around when the powers that be realize what enormous talent is there and provide a way for everyone to share our musical love affair!

  9. MaryPat in Iowa   On   4. December 2011 at 9:19 AM

    To Lee from Maine: you and I must be on exactly the same track… that would the one called Track Joy…every word you said is what I feel regarding NOTHIN’ BUT LOVE and JLB’s magic & charismatic talent in the part of Frankie Valli(singing, dancing & acting). Joe Bwarie is a brilliant young star in a huge galaxy and he shines brighter and brighter each moment because he is pure and real and talented. And Pop Jazz Radio is recognizing him as an asset to their musical offerings for their listeners. Thank you Pop Jazz Radio! and thanks for the terrific and true statement about Joseph Leo Bwarie, Lee! Aren’t we music lovers blessed? Thank you, Joseph Leo Bwarie~

    This album is flawless, fantastic and fresh. I am old enough to know most of the standards and young enough to know the others. You have to deeply understand then craft of the standard or it can become trite and cliche and ” Lounge”.
    Joseph has the gift to make them clean and capture the individual spirit of each score. He has all of the old school tools; phrasing, timing, subtlety and when it calls for it pure fun energy. The orchestral arrangements frame the whole album but it is JLB ‘ s beautiful voice and his love of the material that made it unforgettable for me,
    In the interest of full disclosure he is also my favorite Frankie Valli, performing with a whole different genre but the same attention to detail and a voice that brings people to their feet night after night after night.
    I hoped as we speak someone is designing a wonderful Venue in Vegas ….bring back the one man show with the 40 piece band. Now is the time and this is the man…….don’t blow this show producers, it’s your move. You will never
    regret it . Your headliner is waiting:)

    Thank you to those of you at PopJazzRadio who “listened” and put Joseph Leo Bwarie’s Album Cover shot on your screen shots… He is such a talented and handsome young man…also very personable with great charisma… his voice is magical in quality and spirit. Please keep playing his music & especially his “Umbrella” fun song..and hey! the romantic numbers from The American Song Book are over the top fantastic, and so is the man-we’ll be hearing more from Joseph Leo Bwarie for sure! Thanks again for sharing his music with your listeners-we are lucky listeners!

  12. Terri   On   5. November 2011 at 3:32 PM

    ‘UMBRELLA’ by Joseph is incredible – every track on his Nothin’ But Love CD also holds up to equally – this is a CD you will want multiple copies – one for home, office, car – download to your MP3 – I, personally, have enjoyed this performer so much, I hardly listen to anything else – except maybe Jersey Boys soundtrack or Jersey Boys Christmas CD! These 3 CD’s will round out your ‘Day and Night’!

  13. MaryPat in Iowa   On   3. November 2011 at 5:42 AM

    So happy and pleased and excited that Joseph Leo Bwarie and his song, Umbrella, Fella with an Umbrella, from his debut CD called Nothin’ But Love has stayed at #1 foe 14 phenomenal weeks—Your listeners are very astute and are able to recognized superior and sexy voice and songs from Joseph Leo Bwarie…
    It would be so nice and very catchy to have a photo of JLB on the scrolling photo thing… He’s never been there with other entertainers.

  14. Lorelei   On   29. October 2011 at 1:22 AM

    JLB est un incroyable talent et a compilé des arrangements fantastiques avec le meilleur accompagnement, que j’ai entendu dans un long moment. L’album de l’amour. L’homme de l’amour.

  15. Terri   On   29. October 2011 at 1:13 AM

    JLB ist ein unglaubliches Talent und hat einige fantastische Arrangements mit der besten Begleitung, dass ich seit langem gehört habe zusammengestellt. Liebe das Album. Liebe die Menschen.

  16. Terri   On   29. October 2011 at 1:12 AM

    Liebe dieses Lied und Joseph. Die ganze CD ist wunderbar und macht mich denken Sie daran, was “real” Musik klingt.

  17. Gladys (Phillygalg)   On   16. October 2011 at 2:51 PM

    Love this song and Joseph. The whole CD is marvelous and makes me remember what “real” music sounds like.

  18. Katie N.   On   7. October 2011 at 6:03 PM

    JLB is an amazing talent and has compiled some fantastic arrangements with the best accompaniment I’ve heard in a long time. Love the album. Love the man.

  19. Terri   On   10. September 2011 at 9:31 PM

    I agree with Julie – where’s the LOVE button! This is an incredible debut CD for JLB – can’t wait til he gives us another one!

  20. MaryPat in Iowa   On   5. September 2011 at 5:07 AM

  25. Barb T.   On   7. August 2011 at 2:35 PM

    Great to listen to and be able to understand the lyrics and my husband and I were able to dance to this terrific cd. Love it, love it, love it. Best we have heard in quite some time. From BT and RT.

  26. MaryPat in Iowa   On   6. August 2011 at 5:40 AM

  27. MaryPat in Iowa   On   5. August 2011 at 5:14 AM

    Excitement, energy, emotion, enthusiasm, excellence… that would be total enjoyment in the form of Joseph Leo Bwarie and his awesome debut CD NOTHIN’BUT LOVE. Many warm thanks for playing his Umbrella/Fella With An Umbrella to herald Joseph’s rising star! Thank you!

  28. MaryPat in Iowa   On   4. August 2011 at 2:29 AM

    Again, I promote the promise of pure pleasure in the CD NOTHIN’ BUT LOVE by Joseph Leo Bwarie… this is something phenomenal.. the voice, the presence, the presentation, the passion- The Pied Piper- Thanks for listening and loving NOTHIN’ BUT LOVE!

  29. Debbie   On   1. August 2011 at 2:03 PM

    It is easy to compare Joseph Leo Bwarie to Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr or Michael Buble, but in reality there is no comparison. If you immerse yourself in the album you will find your soul and discover that while the songs may be standards, there is no standard for JLB, he can take you anywhere. If you doubt if he is “now” just listen to Umbrella/Fella With An Umbrella(Medley)and see how he makes a modern standard.

  30. MaryPat in Iowa   On   31. July 2011 at 5:41 AM

    Beautiful wonderful voice and fabulous songs on CD Nothin’ But Love, including : Umbrella. Thank you for showcasing Joseph Leo Bwarie.

  31. MaryPat in Iowa   On   31. July 2011 at 5:34 AM

    shorter commentar: Please play Joseph Leo Bwarie singing UMBRELLA/FELLA WITH AN UMBRELLA- It is such a playful, clever, delightful song.Thanks.

  33. Deborah McNeil   On   29. July 2011 at 4:10 AM

    I chose this selection when I listened to the CD the very first time –
    sooooo interesting and unique !

  34. kathie   On   29. July 2011 at 12:58 AM

    Amazing smooth vocals with orchestrations that make it a pleasure to listen to…..Joseph is tops!!

  35. Stacey   On   28. July 2011 at 11:57 PM

    What makes “Umbrella” such a gem is the melding of an old standard, with modern pop. It’s a combo that will bring back memories for some, and create new ones for others. The entire album is full of vocals and arrangements that are beyond fantastic. I can’t wait to hear what’s next in store for this talented guy.

  36. MaryP in an Iowa Cornfield   On   28. July 2011 at 10:48 PM

    Joseph Leo Bwarie is a gift with a most awesome voice in a beautiful package – the LIKE button is not appropriate-you need a LOVE button or a PHENOMENAL button. Serious, silly, sexy, seductive, sensuous, and the CD is also that fantastic! Umbrella is a fun, perky, adorable, and very clever piece of music. Joseph Leo Bwarie has a spectacular “Big Band” surrounding his very special voice & style on JAZZ/Standards. I hope everyone of your listeners has the joy of the NOTHIN’BUT LOVE experience. Thanks so much for playing his music for us!

  37. Sharon   On   28. July 2011 at 8:40 PM

    I love how Joseph Leo Bwarie sings this song and every other song on this wonderful CD. He is a talent that isn’t just the voice of Frankie Valli in “Jersey Boys” but, has a sound of his own. xo

  38. Emily   On   25. July 2011 at 3:28 PM

    I love this song! Joe’s entire album is fantastic, but this song seems to be the one in my head most days. I too wish there was a “Love” button! He’s that good!

  39. Lynne Menefee   On   24. July 2011 at 5:33 AM

    Beautiful, gorgeous album. Incredible voice and rich
    arrangements! Love love love this album!

  40. Julie   On   24. July 2011 at 3:46 AM

    I love this song – especially the transitions where he goes from one song to the next – “I’ll be all you need and mo-or-ore, because”
