Im so pleased to be a part of this Jazz Network. And what a lovely group for Media to gather and come to work with one another. Im delighted to meet you all. My question is this... How can we as a group help to get the word out on these wonderfull Jazz Artists?
- I will be doing two showcase's per show starting Sept, 2008 That alots anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour , depending on the number of tracks per Artist. I will be requesting bio's from all Artists for this reason.
- I will be announcing the address of this network to my listeners
Any other ideas?
Lets put our heads together and see if we can't create a buzz together.
Well, thats all I have for the moment. I'm looking forward to reading your ideas too.
Yours in the Music
Okay people...everybody is asking for airplay, but nobody's making the moves. Some of us have radio shows, and we are set-up to help the indie artists. Darlins, you have to come to us.
I have a radio show called Jazzin Em Up With Cres O'Neal, http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cres-oneal. The show airs on Wednesdays, from 1 - 2 pm EST. So, if you have music you want played on the air, then contact me. I'm here to help.:o)
The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
Grady Tate began his jazz career as a much-celebrated drummer, backing such icons as Wes Montgomery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. Tate has since traded in his skins for a microphone at center stage, where he delivers smooth and soulful baritone vocals. With pianist John di Martino, Tate sings "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Where Do You Start."
He was a soulful reedman, an amazing talent scout for decades and a bandleader of one of the country's most popular acts. Born in 1913, Herman led "Thundering Herds" that were both big draws and well-respected by the likes of Igor Stravinsky. Here are five recordings which still sound fresh today.
Hear passionate improvisation across borders on Colombian harp, Argentinian bandoneón, Venezuelan cuatro and vibes from the U.S. In a set with Castañeda, his trio and special guests perform at the Americas Society in New York.
