Hello everyone, I am in need of a piano and bass player for a gig in Beijing. The gig would start in December and end at the end of February. Its at a 5 star hotel. 2-3 sets, 6 nights a week Piano or bass player needs to be able to sing. Has to be able to read, arrange, and know STANDARDS?!??! Crazy but I have to say it. Lastly the pay is 4000 a month. If any of you wanna do it, please give me a heads up to my email. firstname.lastname@example.org I'll need to see you via a DVD with your playing solos and you will have to have a passport ASAP. Last but not least, you have to be professional, on time, have a good attitude, be respectful, and desire to create the best music possible. No addicts please... Have to write it because of the horror stories I've heard. I guess that's it. thanks. K
Just joined this web site, but please keep me in mind for future things. Travel, professionalism, attitude, and work ethic is not an issue. Plus, I have a regular list of pianists who are great vocal accompanists to recommend.

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.
