Hey Rich - once again, I am thanking you for first, the invite to this group and for all the great music on PJR. Your doing a great job keeping jazz alive on the radio. You can be sure I'll stay in touch and continue to support the station.
Season's Greetings from "near Toronto". Thanks so much for your new friendship here. I love your concept of keeping the music simple and true to its roots; I feel the same. Just posted a couple of audio samples on my new page here - and have a new CD in the works for early 2010 release. All the best to you! Brenda (Jazz Vocalist)
I’m a Featured Artist here on TJNW and Jaijai Jackson told me to contact you. She thought you might dig what I am doing.
I’m also planning a tour and would appreciate a heads up on any contacts that might support my coming to your area. To know more about me please visit My Page or my website: http://www.victorfields.com.
Rich, 10 and 10 is perfect! I will let Dave and Gi Gi know!
In the event that the afternoon show becomes possible, I would work with you to provide weekly content and we could figure out a quicker way to load it, I would hope.
Thanks for all your kindness, Ken
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!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
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.
