I came up in New Your City and Miami Florida back in the early 70's, my dear friend and mentor was Ira Sullivan who spent much of his time cultivating the Jazz and the love for Jazz in a whole lot of us knuckleheads back in the day. I was also lucky enough to be exposed to Jazz through my brother Tony Bertolotti since birth. Tony played his ass of with everybody in New York City.
I studied bass in Florida, played Sax ever since I was a pup, and took up drums at the tender age of 50...lol... Its commin along. :) Spent more years on the road then Ill admit to, and I now live in California on a sailboat where I'm playing what I want, and when I want to play it. Now that's a blessing. Freedom at last! Love in Christ Jeff Bertolotti

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!!
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
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."
