I just received your cd. I am listening to it now and I am loving it. Will definitely be playing on my station Quiet Storm Radio and will be in touch to set up an interview with you for April Sims A and E Radio.
Thank you Rita - it gives me a lift to hear a singer with your lovely voice say that you like what I do. Thanks from London and hope to visit California again perhaps next year - loved San Diego and sang in Jim Croce's Bar/Restaurant - oh blimey, what a great night that was
"ESB, this is wonderful news! Please give me a link to your station or provide the call letters and frequency so I can let my friends & fans know. Exactly where in Portugal?
My heart thanks you!!!
Jazzy Rita "

My Station is a on line station based on my Last.fm artists library.
I live in a town near Lisbon called Torres Vedras.
Hey thanks! Of course those are only the demo versions.I'm playing everything on the tracks but I've since added live drums on Open Your Eyes and I gotta do the piano verses over! That's Donald Hayes on soprano sax on My Inspiration.He's from Memphis but lives in L.A. I'm sure you guys have crossed paths by now.
I'm glad you like the demos cause that means the finals should be ok(I Hope) :-) :-) Thanks again and I'll definitely be in touch!
PLEASE forgive me not attending the O!! :-) I graduated from Carver High School...I was a pretty decent athlete so I had to put music on the back burner until after college when I decided to try and do it professionally.
I've never met Willie but I've heard the name quite a bit! You know how we do it here in Memphis! :-) Sargeant Lulah??!! hahahahahaha! Didn't go to Overton but I knew her very well.I played organ at Mississippi Blvd for a few years while she was a member there.She and my mom were real cool too.It's off to iTunes!! :-) I've added a couple of demos from my actual cd for you to checkout when you can! Let me know if they suck or not! :-) :-)
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!!
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.
Ever since he started becoming one of the best alto saxophone players in the world, Zenón has drawn from his upbringing in Puerto Rico. But, like many Puerto Ricans, Zenón lives in New York — where his quartet of 10 years has finally been invited to play the Vanguard. It presents new music in concert.
