A Native of Thailand, began studying music in 4th grade by my father, piano instructor for Yamaha Music School in Bangkok Thailand. In the same year I started playing trumpet and join school marching band. My interest in music shifted to contemporary music that's when I learned to play guitar in 6th grade.
I moved to America in 1995 to attend in school at Oneida Baptist Institute, where I play trumpet and guitar in many of school occasions. I pursued my music education by studying guitar at Musician Institute, LA, CA where I earned bachelor degree in music. Since attending Musician Institute, my preference in music has changed along with how Los Angeles multi culture is, mixture of all kinds of music but definitely my first choice is Jazz. I started playing professionally while I was in college playing all kinds of music in a restaurant house band and all kind of casual gigs. I had a chance of working in a studio with a group of UCLA extension instructor where I started working on my own smooth jazz album.
I currently relocated back to Thailand and concentrating in finishing my album.

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.
