"Mojo Dojo at Rhythm and Brews - 2017"

"As a presenter, I am always in search for that perfect band that possess excellence in their musicianship as well their overall entertainment value. I was fortunate enough to find that exact band on September 16, 2017. When I contracted Scott Glazer and his band Mojo Dojo, little did I realize what a perfect fit they would be to kick off our inaugural event "Rhythm and Brews." With their combination of jazz, funk and standards, our audience was captivated from the beginning to the end. Thank you Scott, for making me look so good."

"Mojo Dojo at Chastain Park - 2013"

The Chastain Park Conservancy has had the pleasure of working with Scott Glazer and members of the Mojo Dojo band for three consecutive years. Mojo Dojo performed at the Conservancy's 2010, 2011 and 2012 "On a Green Night" Fall Fundraiser events - the organization's largest annual fundraiser held at the Chastain Amphitheatre. In all three instances Mojo Dojo was on time, well prepared and engaged with the audience.

Prior to each event Mojo Dojo worked with us to develop a song list appropriate for the demographic of our event patrons. We were extremely happy with the results. The Chastain Park Conservancy highly recommends Mojo Dojo as a fun, easy to work with, professional entertainment/music provider. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like additional information about our experience working with this band.

"Ten to Look for in 2011: Scott Glazer"

Ten to Look for in 2011: Scott Glazer
February 14, 2011 By Aurek Field

Writer Susanne Katz has spent the last few months interviewing and photographing some of the most busy and innovative members of Atlanta’s Jewish community and over the next two weeks, we will unveil a new personality profile.
The list is made up of men and women, of differing backgrounds, with unique jobs, hobbies or organizations. They are as unique individually as they are collectively, so stay tuned each day to see who is on the list. Enjoy! –

To Scott Glazer, music is all a matter of taste. This on-air host talks about and plays music on AM1690, The Voice of the Arts. “We are multi-dimensional and play all kinds of music,” Glazer explained. “We play the known and ‘deeper tracks.’ I give my listeners an introduction and then try to get out of the way.”

This bassist/vocalist, band leader, side man and teacher met Joe Weber at a jam session in 2004. “Joe was playing piano. I was playing bass. In the fall of 2004, Joe called me in to talk about joining the station.” Glazer, who currently hosts Monday through Friday 11 am to 2 pm, will release a new CD this year; the first under his own name.

“It’s unusual these days for an AM station to play music,” said Glazer. “Even though when we were kids we all had AM radios to our ears listening to music. Today, most people expect AM to present talk radio. We are independent and knowledgeable and we don’t follow a specific format. Unlike many mainstream radio stations, we are not controlled by a mega-corporation. The focus is artistic rather than commercial. Along with vintage sounds, we play music by great new groups coming out today; many that will never be heard on commercial radio.”

Glazer creates his playlist from the station library and his own collection, gleened from stores, the internet and fellow enthusiasts. “The best things about my job are the music and the listeners. And I get to call up and interview my musical heroes.

It used to be that people would get together in a room to make music. It was organic. I like to listen to and play music from that era. As well, listeners would experience live music and get deep into certain genres.”

Glazer and band members recently accompanied musicologist Yale Strom on a klezmer demonstration/lecture/concert before an enthusiastic audience as part of the 2010 Atlanta Jewish Book Festival. “This is the music of the Ashkenazi,” Glazer explained. “Influenced by folk, gypsy and European traditions and based on melodies and modes from the synagogue. Klezmer was brought to the United States beginning in the late 1800’s. It has experienced a revival that speaks to our Jewish culture and identity. The music we played at the MJCCA event was historically significant. It was written but never recorded, by one of America’s first and most important klezmorim, Dave Tarras. It had never before been played in the South.”

“I am having fun and absolutely entertaining myself when I play music on the radio. I like the pulse and the groove of the music,” said Glazer in a recent interview. “I would describe what I play as listenable music…enjoyable but not so intellectual that it’s not accessible. It’s all about the sound and the listener’s experience. We know the nuts and bolts of music and we play the broad spectrum. If you hear something now that’s not your cup of tea, just wait a few minutes and you’ll hear something completely different. ”

Glazer considers it the greatest compliment when a listener says, “You sound like you are talking to me.”
