TRIBUTE TO SAMMY NESTICO

THE BOB NOVAL ORCHESTRA

SHELLEY BURNS ~ ACCENTUATE

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY MERCER

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

This year we celebrate the 10th year anniversary of The Jazz Network Worldwide! I do hope that it is a work that has been looked at as my art and contribution to jazz and its forward movement. In dedication to my father "Chubby" Jackson, you won't find me stopping anytime soon for  I'll continue to create with no negatives as my father would say.

I just integrated a new network under The Jazz Network Worldwide umbrella.

The Not Just Jazz Network, where we find the best of the best in all genres that integrates their artistry with jazz.  There is much to do and create, so its presented with class, dignity and an innovative flare in keeping this art form moving forward.

I’m looking to open our horizons, be a place where festivals come to see what is new and exciting in the world of jazz and its booking capabilities.  Its up to us to show the marketplace what a real jazz festival can be with talent that makes sense to be on a jazz stage.   I’m all for variety music festivals, showcasing the various genres, but what I don’t stand for is other genres booked on these festivals that have nothing to do with jazz, singing their R&B hits from the 90’s. Wrong.

Only through my heritage do I get my fuel, I need for those of you from other genres that would like to be a part of this quest to join us in the 'great place to hang' and share who you are…let’s hear your musical integration of jazz your way!

That is my quest for 2017 and beyond so jazz festivals will consider just that, where it honors the artistry of all who improvise their hearts and were inspired by Jazz.

Features This Week: Vocalist/Educator Shelley Burns

Featured this week on The Jazz Network Worldwide: The Legendary Bob Noval Orchestra launches its new website with their tribute to Sammy Nestico

The Bob Noval Orchestra has a rich and iconic family history pleasing audiences worldwide for decades. The tribute to Sammy Nestico comes from many years of playing his notable musical charts paying homage to his world renown musicianship.

The Noval Family has etched its mark in the music books of the giants of Big Band Swing. It dates back almost eight decades from its original leader Ray Noval who was responsible for starting this family tradition to his brother Pat joining him in the early fifties. They continued together through the 60’s and 70’s until Ray passed away in 1988. Pat kept the momentum of his heritage by playing with different bands across the country.

He frequently played with the Ray McKinley Orchestra, the Gus Bivona Orchestra, Claude Gordon, and the Fabulous 40's Orchestra. Pat has played with Bob Hope, Joey Bishop, Dezi Arnaz, D*** Shawn, Milton Berle, Gordon McCrea, Jimmy Durante, the Pied Pipers, Vaughn Monroe, Ray Eberle, Connie Haines and The Four Freshmen. As early as 1976, Bob and Pat were acquiring "charts" (arrangements of musical numbers) of some of the greatest names in the big band era. Thanks to their efforts, The Bob Noval Orchestra repertoire includes classics made famous by such icons as Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, the Dorsey Brothers, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Duke Ellington and Count Basie whom many played and recorded many of Sammy Nestico’s charts.

“It only seemed fitting that our orchestra would assemble a project that encompassed our favorite Sammy Nestico charts He not only was a family friend but one of the best composer/arrangers in the history of big band jazz,” says Bob Noval.

In the early 80’s Pat’s son Bob became his business partner and leader of the orchestra while his father sat proudly blowin’ in the sax section. Not only do they include the charts of the great swing bands of our time, but it echoes the sound of an era that is a testament to the talent of the noted musicianship who are alumni of many of those bands. Having the honor of performing for presidents, ambassadors and the elite of society as well as special events, concerts, festivals, fundraisers, corporate events, grand openings, community affairs, weddings and anniversaries.
The orchestra is known as a Swingin’ big band that plays the arrangements from the 30's, 40's, and 50’s who also include contemporary charts in its repertoire.

“The Bob Noval Orchestra is a swinging big band that would compliment any event.” It reminds me of many great memories in jazz”, says Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide.

Be sure to check out the Bob Noval Orchestra’s feature on The Jazz Network Worldwide http://thejazznetworkworldwide.com and their new website at http://bobnovalorchestra.com to learn more and purchase.
