Tasha, I know I already sent an e-mail, but I think I did it after an 8 show week so I was bit out of it. It would be a shame to not meet you while I'm out here. The show is out of this world. Yes reveiws have been good, audiences loving it; and God help me I love Laguna Beach. I would move out here in a minute. I will be back in NY on August 30th. If things work out so we can meet up here, great, in NY great as well, but soon none-the-less. Best wishes love and peace. Keep rockin....or jazzin as it were.
Tasha I'm in Laguna Beach and I want you to come hear my show at Laguna Playhouse. It's wonderful. Working with a very good group including James Leary III. Bass player who works with the Basie band. COME SEE MY SHOW and let's meet up. There's this great italian place that is very affordable. We'll catch dinner and the show. OK, bring the husband:) LOL
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.
