I am glad to announce the release of my debut CD called "Interro Island". This is my first solo project, which includes original tunes composed and arranged by me. I hope you will enjoy my work!
available on CD Baby now!"
One can never be too kind or too alive! Writing charts; a Finale master I'll never be. Print Music works OK for lead sheets, I'm still learning. If I was the only one playing my stuff I wouldn't write it out - maybe chord/rhythm charts - but have to when sending songs to other artists. I have one (on Finale, which I didn't do alone) that I've always heard sax on, maybe you could give me your feedback on it? I could send as a pdf.
Hey Benjamin, just stopping in to see how you're doin'. Dig the new action shots, I hope the gigs have been good. How is the writing and recording progressing? If you have any charts as pdf's it'd sure be cool to play through them. Your musical vibe is still one of the most intriguing I've found here. May all be grooven for Drazen.
Hey BD, your plan sounds good. Do you have the compositions and arrangements done already or still creating? I assume "Solemn" was yours, that was nice.
The scene in Dallas is so-so, but the further east the less. There are very few gigs, but in a way, that persuades one to focus on writing and recording and developing one's own sound. Space is an asset in that realm, I think. It depends on present state of mind :o)
BUT, yeah, I'd like to gig in positive venues.
Great to have you here and thanks for the add. There are some musician friends in NYC playing at Lenox Lounge, St; Nicks's pub, Minton's maybe Stitch and a couple of other spots - drummer Bernard Linnette with Patience Higgens, Andy McCloud and singer Kemba Cofield. Check them out!
Thanks for you comment to me. Yes, feel free to load your music, pics and videos!
As for the site would you believe its one week old?? I'm still perfecting it, I had no idea it would take off this fast! I've been trying hard not to miss a beat in all areas, the WOJ (Woman of Jazz) is tired!! But blessed to see everyone having a great time networking.
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!!
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.
Ever since he started becoming one of the best alto saxophone players in the world, Zenón has drawn from his upbringing in Puerto Rico. But, like many Puerto Ricans, Zenón lives in New York — where his quartet of 10 years has finally been invited to play the Vanguard. It presents new music in concert.
