How are things in Florida? Probably a lot nicer than up here. Good to see that your doing well. I finally put together a nice CD together, which is out now called "El Puente" It has a few of your friends on it, especially Pete…"
Steve Pouchie is a Latin Jazz Vibraphonist who lives in New York City. I've been playing Vibes professionally for over twenty five years, and I just enjoy playing music. I was originally influenced by a Vibe player who was friends with Milt Jackson, whose name is Bob Davis, and who helped me to focus on the Vibraphone while I was in college. I also studied with Roswell Rudd, the trombonist who inspired me to follow music. I play practically any style of music, but I really thrive on Jazz and Latin Jazz.
I am definitely a fan of Stefon Harris who I think plays so naturally as a vibist that you can't help but admire him as a player and as an astute musician. I saw Milt Jackson live a few times back in the days, and between him and Cal Tjader, who I also saw in California, I had enough to work on.
I also teach Music and Technology in the NYC schools and joined this network so as to promote my music and make music connections. It seems like a great site, so I hope everyone can appreciate and share in my musical direction.

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.

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.
