Hello Kirk, I was hoping you'd pick up on this site. Check out my shots of you at The Capital Jazz Fest, The Norwalk Jazz Fest and the recording of The Gospel According To Jazz, Part III. Please say hello to Uncle Peanuts for me.
Blessings Mr. Whalum!:) I was glad to finally meet you during that "BWB" tour a few years back & also when Marcus Miller's gig got rained out about 3years ago. You are one of my favorites & I've always dug your sound on those earlier Bob James cds.:) Stay cool & you are sooo important to this website because of the knowledge & positive energy that you share! Peace & enjoy doing "yo thang" up here!:)...Noelle:)
p.s. Please tell Mr. James I send respectful well wishes!:) Thanks!!:)
Welcome to the Network. I saw you years ago in Atlanta when you stopped your show and gave an awesome testimony in Club Eschilon (I think that was the name, LOL) about your life. It was very moving. I hope your show was great at the Long Beach Jazz Festival this weekend. Linda Morgan invited me to this network who works for that company. This is a great place to be.
How are you and the family? Just doing my radio show in Cape Town right now so I thought I'd say howzit. My dear 82 year old mom still talks about the Gospel Concert on last years North Sea Jazz Cruise. Will write you soon. Regards to the family.
So happy to see many fellow Memphian's on the site, George Caldwell, Dr. Bill Hurd, including myself, I'm quite there are some others. I started the James Austin Musicians Assistant Program and want to personally thank you for showing interest in the organization. I admire your warmth and spirituality.
Hi Kirk, I am a huge fan of your work. I have a Jazz radio show on BBC in Britain and would love to do an interview some time to promote you in the UK. If that suits, please get in touch. I am leaving a link to the show so you can check its suitability. Walter Becker and Jim Beard have been guests in the last few weeks. Many thanks, Linley
It's exciting to see you here on TJN landscape! We met on the North Sea Cruise '07, (I mentioned and my sister and niece(who plays violin) met you at Centennial Park with the family.

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.

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.
