What type of Jazz are you teaching? What is your instrumentation?
Do you have any tips that work for you that you can share? I try to have my group do a lot of listening to recordings and we do a lot of improv. The first 10 min. of class is devoted to improv on 12 bar blues. By the way you have a great voice!!
Best of luck with the CD! And best of luck with hunting a label. Be strong! After all the effort you've put in, make it work for you! Easier said than done I know. But I wish you reeeeeal well!
Hey, hi !
I've listened to a lot of vocalists on this site. And was delighted to come across your very cool voice. You have a REAL jazz quality.
Not to mention that Inside a silent tear is one of my all time favoite tunes. So keep on doing what you're doing. It sure works for me.
You sound Great! Really!
You have an outstanding voice....All of the hard work is paying off. You are on the right course. Please let me know when you'll be touring the states....more specifically Atlanta. I'll be sure to spread the word.
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!!
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.
Hear passionate improvisation across borders on Colombian harp, Argentinian bandoneón, Venezuelan cuatro and vibes from the U.S. In a set with Castañeda, his trio and special guests perform at the Americas Society in New York.
Ever since he started becoming one of the best alto saxophone players in the world, Zenón has drawn from his upbringing in Puerto Rico. But, like many Puerto Ricans, Zenón lives in New York — where his quartet of 10 years has finally been invited to play the Vanguard. It presents new music in concert.
