Tell us a little about your background...
I'm the type of person that feels deeply, listens intently and loves music with a passion. I suppose I was a musician in a past life or something...it's just IN me to the core. I feel it, resonate with it and become it. The music I'm listening to at any given moment, defines me in that moment. Many forms of music are capable of touching me this way. When I experience something that "moves me to the soul," I'm compelled to pass it on and see if I can bring that same experience to anyone who is willing to listen...to KNOW the experience of it.

Are you still doing your concerts? Keep me posted.
And think about using me sometime. I just celebrated my birthday with Sarah James. We had a ball.
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.
