Well Mr. Hughes, welcome again. Yes I know Cynthia. She left before we had a chance to offer her a chance to sing. You are welcome to attend any event that I am doing. A lot of times, I am not doing the event, just posting as a courtesy to whatever artist is performing. Actually I would like to invite you to an affair going on this evening from 8-12 in Temecula, CA All star Jamm at Simply Sharon's. It is being hosted by Darryl Williams on Bass and Kim Horn on Vocals. They also serve New Orleans style food. Any artist or spectator is welcome to attend. Thanks again, Karen Faison
Mr. Hughes, you may have me confused wtih another promoter, but I thank you for coming to this site and welcome, welcome, welcome. I had no idea that there were so many promoters in the area. I am curious as to whom I invited, told you about me. Nevertheless. There is so much to be done out here to help these artists, that if people started pooling their resources, everyone would get paid. Plus, there would be a lot of good music going on. Cause when you are happy, or when you are down, is when the best music is created. I want to hear happy music, take care. Karen Faison

Welcome to THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE "A GREAT PLACE TO HANG"
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!!
Pianist and singer Barbara Carroll was host Marian McPartland's second guest during the first season of Piano Jazz. Thirty years later, Carroll makes a return appearance to reminisce with her friend about their experiences at the Hickory House and the Oak Room. Carroll gives a charming performance of "Very Early" and McPartland improvises a musical portrait of her guest.
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.
