I'm glad you're enjoying it. Yes, I'm playing a strat on the whole CD and Michael is playing my 57' ES175D that's what's giving it the contrast. I don't get the traditional strat sound out of my guitar that's why it's hard to tell. Together Again is my Standards CD It Makes Me Glad is all Original. No overdubbs.
I see your cd is out tomorrow. Looking forward to checking it out. good luck!
thank you for your kind words. Now I found the time to listen deeper to your music. I love the human vibes and the absolutely positive message in your beautiful music and words. You are doing an amazing work and you play every of your instruments so very well!
You are such a brilliant soul...you always know when to drop a blessing into someone's life. I am so thankful that you are here sharing what God created and contributing your music to the flow of His Work. You make me smile deep.
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!!
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.
Hear passionate improvisation across borders on Colombian harp, Argentinian bandoneón, Venezuelan cuatro and vibes from the U.S. In a set with Castañeda, his trio and special guests perform at the Americas Society in New York.
Ever since he started becoming one of the best alto saxophone players in the world, Zenón has drawn from his upbringing in Puerto Rico. But, like many Puerto Ricans, Zenón lives in New York — where his quartet of 10 years has finally been invited to play the Vanguard. It presents new music in concert.
