Thanks a lot for your comments too David! I`ve mainly just been trying to network this CD and haven`t been writing lately, but when the time comes, you`ll be in my mind. Glad to know you write too. Lyrics come easy to me, but sometimes its cool just to get another idea.
Thanks for the offer my brother and keep slammin`.....Respect, IZ

Thanks for adding me to your circle. I am doing a performance on Feb 28th and 29th in Peoria AZ at the 15th Annual NBHC Music Festival and Carnival Peoria Municipal Complex Peoria, Arizona (83rd Ave and Cinnabar between Peoria and Olive) Performance time TBA 623-204-0959. Are you part of that show?
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.
