Hi Stephen - Right back at you! Thanks so much for connecting with me on here, too. Yes, I would certainly be very interested in singing on your show with the big bands. My favourite song to sing from the era? Wow, that's a tough one. I was raised on so much of the music because my parents were both veterans of the British Army in WWII (that's how they met :-). I'd have to say: "A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square" is unanimously #1 for me. "Stardust" is also a fave. And a I love singing the fast tempo swingers, too. I do pretty much anything by Vera Lynn and Marlene Dietrich. Anyhow, I am so pleased to hear from you - and will drop you a private note to discuss this more. All the best; Brenda
Thanks for the kudos and the add. Actually, the songs on my site, except for "Baby It's Cold Outside," are from a demo. I can send you a copy of my Christmas Cd. My new CD won't be completed until later this spring. Email me, and we can talk.
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.
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.
