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!!
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.
