Brent, welcome aboard! Up with jazz, especially the kind of jazz you play. Could I borrow a $100.00. Oh forgot, you are a jazz musician maybe I need to loan you money, or not. I thought open E was the basses lowest note. Help me out here. Explain your bass tuning for us non-musicians. Love Ya. Ron
Hi Brent, thank you so very much for the friendship. You no there is a special connection between Bassist and Drummers. My eldest brother was a bassist. Who knows somewhere down the road we can share the stage together. Welcome to the network. God Bless you, Anthony
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!!
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
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.
