Thanks so much for turning me on to the Jazz Network. It's refreshing to know that JAZZ is alive and kicking all over the world! Again, thanks for your thoughtfullness and may you have the attention and success you deserve.....
Thanks for adding me too. Please keep me posted about your Ohio and beyond events. I still have family and many friends in Cleveland so I will be visiting periodically. Hopefully, I will be able to get back into Ohio for a week or so by December if not sooner. I would love to finally come hear you sing at one of the clubs.
Incredible voice Ki. Much like Sarah Vaughan but with a certain spiceyness that I cant quite describe.
If you ever take your show out west send me a headsup, I can only imagine the magic in the air at a live performance!
Well done Ms Ki !!!....your stylings are lovely and competent and the spacing with your talented group are a treat for my "old" ears....thank you for sharing your sweet musical artistry here at TJN...you're a marvelous talent indeed! Would love to network with you anytime should you need imagery to match your sweet musical works...have always loved Cleveland...showed my work in the CMA May Show in the 60's (where did the time go?...lol)...my best to you...always b
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.
