Going OK. I have a big concert opening for Brian Culbertson and the Funk Experience on September 11, at the House of Blues Orlando. Some more things are happening but we are trying to work out details. Otherwise it looks like 2009 is going to be the busier year for me!
Acknowledgement is the key in anything we choose to do...when you see people enjoy your work and have it touch them in a real way then it makes you feel good inside. I'm glad to hear that you are doing just that! I also thank you for your kind comment to me regarding TJN, it is a home and it has to be made comfy for us all... :-)

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.

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.
