Hey JT, good to see you again, although the circumstances were sorrowful. It was at the Hank Grate Sr. Memorial Jam in the old neighborhood. I will be posting some photos from the event in THE JAZZ NETWORK'S gallery.
Ahhhh....."Resting on the Road".....very beautiful...I get the visual of a musician on the road, far from home, layin' on the bed with the curtains of his hotel room open, looking out onto the countryside and wondering about his family....how music takes us all over the world and sometimes we are the only one who experiences all the different cultures...all by ourselves...beautiful backdrop to life on the road J.T. I am going to promote the song on my page if you don't mind....
Thanks for the visual of thought and heart musically,
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.
