My name is Zach Serleth, i am a senor in high school and a huge fan of jazz. Dave Janesh is who got me into this wonderfull form of music and teaches most of the Jazz Theories, chord progressions, notes, and importance of reading music to me. I also study my main instrument, the bass, under the great teachings of Paul Bagwell who has really advanced my bass playing very fast. I study my secondary instrument, guitar, under my old basketball coach Chris Kates. My main infulences are Paul Bagwell and Dave Janesh, they are the people that got me into playing bass. But, as for people who everyone knows i would say my main infulences are Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Tal Wilkenfeild, Les Claypool, Justin Chanceller, Flea, and Stanely Clarke. I plan on playing these instruments for the rest of my life and cant wait for my first gig!

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.
