Started out as a Jazz drummer and evolved into a composer and arranger. I saw Alan Dawson for the first time at a PAS convention in Anaheim, I and everyone else was amazed at his groove and complete command of the drums. It was a dream of mines to study with him, my dream came true four years later when I was Berklee College of Music I started lessons with him. It changed my life! Also gave me good exercise when depending on what bus I took to Lexington where he lived, a mile or a two mile walk from the bus stop to his home. It was like another mile when you have to brave a snowstorm but it was all worth it to study Alan. He was inspirational and a taskmaster, all the ingredients for a great teacher. Everytime I pick up the sticks I am tranplanted to his basement studio listening to him philosophize about life and drums.

OMG...I apologize for not getting back with you ASAP, but I have been so busy touring and recording, then I got really sick and ended up in the hospital, but I am recovering beautifully and will be back full force next month.
So good to hear from you:))) I was in Europe this entire summer. I was in Italy and Sicily a lot. Spent most of my time in Sicily touring with a Sicilian Band and a great Smooth Jazz Saxophonist "Nat Minutoli". He is a member here in Jazz Works too. The band was incredible. We connected so well and the concerts were very sucessful. The people there embraced me with such love and support and loved me and my music:)))) I will be going back there next summer again:)))
How are you? What's been happening on your side. Write me...Ok. I am home this for now during the holidays. I am so sorry that I missed you in October....:( When will you be back? Let me know....
OK sweetie, take care and I look forward hearing back from you. I wish you a Happy Holiday with plenty aloha....eheheh!
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.
