My name is Max Leake. I played with you in Pittsburgh a few times when you came through. At Al Dowe's place. I just wanted to say hello and I hope all is well with you. I always had a great time playing with you.
Heyyy, Mr. Hampton! Sooo glad to see you up here which makes this site extra special having an awesome legendary jazz musician such as yourself share your energy & knowledge!:) It was great to see you again in february!:) Hugs & blessings to you & your family! Take care & hoping to catch you gigging in the very near future sir....Noelle:)
Thank you Slide for making it clear that its YOU, really YOU :-)
Lots of times manager's run their artists' pages so, with that said, its an complete blessing to meet you here, I'm sure you knew of my Dad "Chubby Jackson", I know he'd be delighted to know you have joined the Jazz Network family! You are a musical icon and I love the tune 'Mandela'~ if you ever need anything please let me know.
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.
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.
