Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill www.myspace.com/hollywoodstudiojazz (in Hollywood's historical Gower Gulch / East of Vine) Hollywood, CA 90028 OK, I've finally gotten around to adding some more music. This is from a project in the making with JANE GETZ (piano), EDWIN LIVINGSTON (bass), JULIE SUSSMAN-PEREZ (sax), MICHAEL HUNTER (trumpet), MICHAEL TURNER (drums)... STAR EYES and I COULD HAVE TOLD YOU. ENDLESSLY's composers Effie Joy and Tom Culver and myself will also be going back into the studio the 2nd week of April... this next next song by this magnificent duo is "OVER THE TOP" fabulous and I will be paying tribute to them April 7th at the Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill. It's our planned date for OpenMic/Musicians JamSession as well as my Birthday Celebration...but we'll fit everything in.... everything's starting at 8PM signup at 7:30PM ... small cover charge of $5 per person.... plus 2 drink minimum / Dinner order. To be on the safe side, it wouldn't be a bad idea to call for reservations for best seating (323) 466-9917
Couldn't stop listening to your smooth sultry voice which was supported by great music! We'll be re-locating to the Palm Springs area this summer! I hope to hear you live! Check out my cd "Mike's Place" on the new Jazz network music player when time permits!
Hi Dolores Good to hear from you & glad to see you are doing lots of
things! Funny, I guess I do have that kind of face - but did not grow
up in New York - and alas never went to camp - just fun though to
remind you of some good memories. Do keep me posted.
Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself by way of the network. Dini was a very special, gracious and giving man in my experience. We often chatted about having him come visit down under. My condolences to you as well. He left a wonderful touch in our heart. It was through Dini's site I found your myspace and hence the jazz network. Thank you.
P.S: I love your take on things as per your myspace:)
First of all.... you better send me some contact information like a phone number... and an email address.... I'll be there before the year is out... I guess I should arrange my trip around one of your shows.. now that you're a big star and stuff.... :)
Well let me tell you.... your name just popped into my head.... and I googled and there you are singing up a storm! What's up baby girl.... I'll be out there soon as I can get a cheap flight. You have my email address so send me your cell. firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to talking with you.
hHey Delores, Thanks for getting back to me. The theatre hired a Bass player. JaiJai recommended a drummer but I have wait and see how that develops. The good news is that I am going to have Jazz musicians on the stage with me instead of theatre hacks. Laguna Playhouse is serious about my show being successful. When I'm out there, I hope to do as much additional playing as possible, so please please, connect me if you can. I'll go to every jam session in town if I have to. Peace darlin...Vince
My name is Vince di Mura. I am the arranger and musical director for a show called MY WAY. It is a theatre revue that pays tribute to Sinatra. I am doing 51 performances of the show at Laguna Playhouse in Laguna beach California in July and August. I need a bass player and drummer from that area. LA. etc. They can hire someone from their pool of musicians but theatre musicians ain't jazz musicians and I want jazz musicians if possible. Can you put me in contact with a jazz society from that area or how can I reach only Southern Californian players? Peace...vince
Hi Delores. I could just live in this page. Such excellent work. Thanks so much for adding some music here. I would absolutely love to offer you some airtime with us. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.
Yours in the music
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.
