"I recently completed my internship in Music Therapy and I would like to share a story with all of you. I was interning in a facility in White Plains, NY. Every Saturday I would drive up and work with children of different age levels and disabilities…"
This is a unique gift, to bring music into retirement homes, long term care facilities, children's hospitals, homes for the aged, play flute, violin, piano, trio's, walk down the halls and play tunes for those bed-ridden....jazz heals, who's willing?
I am a singer from the age of 16 starting as an opera singer. As I matured I turned to Jazz, contemporary and musical theatre. Then I was turned on to Music Therapy and I though this was a marvelous healing method. We all know that music is soothing but to use it as a venue for healing was even better. I enrolled in school working on a degree program in Music Therapy to devolt my gift to helping others.

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.
