I was born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in Huntington Beach, with my beautiful big family..... I love music, did I say love music??? I love to read, write poetry and songs.

Hi Mary - thank you for accepting my friend request. I am brand new to this site and you my very first friend. I am excited to be here. You came to my attention when I looked at the "Forever Lovers" video. You are right! It is a beautiful song. Who is the artist? Thank you again.
Welcome Mary!! I just swung through here (it's been so long) and noticed you and Bonita joined up and gave me credit!!! That was a nice surprise... I've been here for about 3 or 4 years now. Jaijai Jackson is a wonderful woman if you haven't already met her... Welcome to TJN...

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!!
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.
