Thank you! What is your actual name? And what are your instruments? I have very little time to spend on here, alas - I have a full-time day job, which is great (secretary at a large aerospace firm), plus I do free-lance gigging once or twice a week (one steady gig a week, w/ a Dixieland sextet, and then some others here and there as they come along). But let me suggest you listen to an incredible YouTube video as follows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqbeloVa3fU Wow! Since you are my first friend on here, I have to share this absoluate GEM with you. It is the late piano giant Oscar Peterson, along with renowned Canadian pianist (still living) Oliver Jones - playing together, on two concert grands facing one another, so it's 2 pianos, 4 hands - they play the famous jazz standard "Just Friends." Incredible!! Tell me more about yourself!! And best for now! I HOPE you listen to Oscar and Oliver - WOW!!...
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.
