I am overjoyed to find this very special place for Jazz. And I am happy to be here now. Everyday I am learning the endless possibilities of technology, particularly the internet. Now we can share music, news, thoughts,etc. instantly and globally. As creators of this music called Jazz, the internet has brought about a new creative and commercial freedom never shared, or even imagined by our early Jazz family. Who knew that technology would be the bridge, the path to conceiving and controlling our creative offerings, at a pace, in a form that all Artists should naturally decide; not "manufactured" for a corporate time quarter, trend, or quota. The songs must be free to be, to be born to be free, to soar.
I am too happy to be a witness to this new freedom, and to have the opportunity to learn and implement needed change for Jazz to grow.
For now, I'll slowly build my Jazz page into a friendly place. I'm new here, and I'm already enjoying what I'm hearing, seeing and reading. Lee Morgan taught me the importance of slow building; we were in the studio working on my first album, "FLUTE-IN". I remember his words as I recorded his hit,"THE SIDEWINDER" He said,Build slowly, like a conversation. Don't rush your words, or notes!"
So, after I come back from my run,( Just started back!) I'm calling my webmaster to get some very special photos on, and some of my music up too. Please visit my official site at www.bobbihumphrey.net, and myspace.com.
P.S. Try to come to my gig on Friday and Saturday, July 11-12,'08 in Mount Vernon, New York. My friend, Jazzman Duke Jones has started a new club for Jazz called "THE BASS LINE".And I'll be there with my band to help him launch it. So, come by. It's located at 130 east First st. See you there, and talk with you later. All the best! Bobbi
