Tell us a little about your background...
I have been playing R&B/Jazz since 1978 when I was the keyboardist with the girl-group, "Sugah." I continued to write, produce and play through the early 90's when my hip-hop tunes and trademarked name, Ice Cream, got plagiarized, sampled and copied. I was buried... I emerged on itunes.com/kathrynkjburnett one year ago and am finding my way back.

My website, OldSchoolMusic.Net in 1999 was revolutionary (a pattern for itunes?) and was to be a way to recoup sampling losses by using the famous songs with our tracks as advertising to sell our own music. Finally the day is here. Check out my catalogue at www.itunes.com/kathrynkjburnett. Thanks for the healing Jai Jai
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.
