WOW. I'm in awe of your accomplishments! So glad to have found you here on the Jazz Network.
I confess to a great love of everything Japanese, and am honored that my newest CD is actually selling more copies in Japan than here in the US! Quite surprising, but I am thrilled. Now my goal is to perform there.
I hope you will add me as a friend on the Jazz Network!
Have a lovely day

Hello Goh ...

Yes, I think Taka is in Japan waiting for his visa to be renewed. I'm not sure how to reach him except by email. Spoke with Philippe the other day and he said the French project you're working on is going very well...glad to hear it. Poogie also said he's been in touch. Funny, all these years later we're still all working together in some way or another...still making great music ;-)
Hope you're enjoying the spring weather...it's very cold here. Catch a fish for me ;-)
Thank you for accepting my request. It is an honor to be one of your friends here on the JN. I've followed your work for years and look up to your perfection and art.
Much respect to you.
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.
