Thanks Frances for your very kind words, every now and then, the creator allows me to play something meaningful dispite myself! Seriously though, I am extremely grateful to be part of something so important and grand as creative music. Keep on singing! Phil
Thank you so much. I do not have a choir but some of them are extremely talented. The band I manage Jazzmatic you hear here on my page are adults. We have a studio and do everything Produce, Master etc. in house in Atlanta. Will who is Jazzmatic is also an Engineer a genius all the way around. I thank you so much for your kindness....do you have a studio here in LA? If so when the band comes to town hopefully on tour in the Spring and/ or Summer we can do some recording then. Let me know your fees for studio time if this is something you do.

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.
