Thanks Manee. Although I speak fluent Spanish the funny thing is I don't like singing in Spanish. I don't know what it is but the phrasing just doesn't seem to work for my style. Spanish is quite a 'hard' language and maybe that's it. Flamenco, for instance, is fantastic and I love it but I could never sing it. Vx
Thanks for the add! I am actually on this site and others promoting my last cd and my upcoming one. I hope you checked out my songs on my IMEEM site and also at www.myspace.com/enriqueoliveras and also hope you will show your support with a purchase on cdbaby if you like one or all. I just dropped on my site called ‘True Love Never Dies” a blend of funk/r&b and Rap. You can find my songs under “Que-My Original Music”. The second button for “Tribal Winds” is my collaboration effort in Tribal/New Age music.

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.

What an incredible idea!!
