2010 Album Project - Getting in Shape!

Earlier today, I gave a lecture about jazz history. There was something that I said during the hour long presentation that really stuck with me. My statement went something like this:





"Jazz suffers today because it is so difficult to maintain a set line up for a band. The result is that you end up with a bunch pick-up bands that are put together for a specific gig based on who may be available because they don't have a better paying gig. This means that songs, within many jazz… Continue

Tommie Brewster - recordings of two interviews today...........



I'd like to thank Carmen Milagro and Holly Stephey for the two live radio interviews I did today which gave me the opportunity not only to talk

about my music - and I can talk music forever! - but also about

two causes I'm involved in which mean a lot to me.



I rarely broadcast my involvement in any cause as I prefer just to

try and help quietly as best I can, but in both cases these 'causes'

are about to launch… Continue

Jam Sessions

Over the past few days, I've been pondering the importance of jam sessions and how they serve a variety of functions. I think what brought this on was a college musician who invited me down to their weekly Wednesday night jam session. I tried to explain that I didn't have a lot of free time these days and certainly not the time to play without getting paid. His facial expressions made me realize that he took it the wrong way. I believe he thought I said that because I felt like I was too good… Continue

Small Galaxy Review by John Shelton Ivany

This is the latest review for my new album, Small Galaxy! Mr. Ivany's kind words touched my heart . . .

“Kathy Sanborn is able to convey emotional truths with a sound no one else
can produce--a quavering joy that works equally well over an ocean or
acoustic chords of ballads. No one else sings like that.” --John Shelton Ivany, National News Bureau

Awe

I am still in awe.



I am savoring every mouse click which takes me into something new I never knew.



Music never heard, memories now instilled -- entwined within the sounds of sounds.



Blogs; talent; intelligence; technology; beauty (where's the coffee, I need to see more).



I see friends I haven't seen in awhile and some I just "faced" and smiled at moments ago.



I'm not in Kansas anymore, that's for sure.



Thank you for this… Continue
