Was wondering when you will put some of your music up to enjoy? I'd be interested in featuring your new project. I know you are crazy busy, but when you get a chance would love to hear from you.
"Now worries, I do understand with my husband being a Musician too. Good luck with the new CD, we look forward to hearing it, and hope to see you at Yoshi's when you are in the Bay Area.
Sorry it took so long to write back but I've been working on a new CD, but Patches was my hero growing up in New Orleans. I'm still a big fan of his, a truly gifted person.
Thanks for the kind words.

Terrance...thanks for being the consumate artist you are, you're an inspiration indeed to this "older" restarting musician. Love the arrangements and truly creative approaches you've arranged with the vocalists you've partnered with. Your originality and out of the box thinking is inspirational and totally fresh. Your totally individual horn playing and stylings are great starting points for theory and approaches in learning... If there is anything I can do to help you and any other professionals on the projects to rebuild New Orleans just ask. I will glady donate my capabilities with my art and photography to help the Crescent City and all those in it.
I shot the picture here of "Sweet Emma" and her "men" in 1974 at Preservation Hall.
My best to you and all those in your life...always b
Happy New Year to you and your family!

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!!

Carroll gives a charming performance of "Very Early" and McPartland improvises a musical portrait of her guest.
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.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
