Studied voice, taught beginner voice, born into a long line of professional musicians, performed in blues and jazz bands (smooth jazz, standards), former worship music director. As a presenter of Sound Therapy workshops, I teach people how to use sound, voice and music for health. A brief explanation of Sound therapy is located on the photo of some of the sound healing instruments. I also have been a member of a group that gently sings bedside to those who are bed-ridden and/or terminally ill. It can be a hymn, an old standard, or any favorite song. I love all good music, but Jazz is the genre that makes my personal world a brighter place! My 88 year old mother still gigs and she always says, "It's the music that keeps me young!"

Welcome to THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE "A GREAT PLACE TO HANG"
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!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
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.
