I just found your post on my Jazz Network wall (haven't checked it for a while. I'm mostly checking the Facebook.)
Anyway, I'll sure let you know if I'm making music in your spot on the planet! Cheers, Rick
NIce to meet you and thanks for sharing such wonderfully innovative video`s.... MUSIC! I left you some comments on a couple of your video pages..... Thanks again and keep slammin`.... I`ll keep listening! Respectfully, IZ
Thanks for the friend request. I'll be sure to take a look at your music video. Feel free to add me to your facebook as well. I plan to be posting to my page from the Barry Harris Jazz Workshop in Rome in September. If you're near Rome be sure to check it out.
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.
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.
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.
