The last year was a work marathon and I look forward to having more time to relax.
Where ever you are take care and thanks again for all your loving comments and support of the… Continue

Review by: Raul de Gama-Latin Jazz Network

A grass roots group of jazz journalists and broadcasters, websites, bloggers, and presenters have launched a #jazzlives campaign on Twitter, using the social networking platform to demonstrate that recent reports of jazz's demise are, in the words of Mark Twain, greatly exaggerated.
According to data from a 2008 survey of audience participation in the arts released by the National Endowment for the Arts and featured in recent articles in the Wall Street Journal and the New York… Continue

“How many of you have never heard of Dakota Staton?”
I have always heard and repeated – with a long 'A'
vowel – the pronunciation of: Staton. Yet, even Mr. Barker is not exactly sure how to state the name of an artist whom he obviously respected; even though she was not of his generation. (It would be like me talking about, Alicia Keyes – but, ten years from… Continue

Michael Jackson would have turned 51 years old next week on 8/28. Loved by millions, he was undoubtedly one of the world's greatest entertainers. Michael was not as well known as a great humanitarian. Yet, as we look over his donations over the years we find that he gave more of himself and his fortune than any entertainer, living or dead.
On the 28th-29th of August a celebration of his life will take place in Kent,… Continue
