Nice to hear from you. I'll be happy to talk when you are ready. I'm
interested in getting my band working again. Probably it's the bad economy and I know other musicians who are complaining.
Just had a very nice concert for Tony Williams Quartet. In East Oak Lane, Philadelphia, PA. Sept 26, 2010. We might do it again next year. He appears on Monday night at La Rose, 5531 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia. I hold fund raising concerts for the Friends of the Oak Lane Library. Try as I can, the crowds are small, though intimate and with a mix and mingle reception we turn a profit. The most I can pay artists is $100

Welcome to THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE "A GREAT PLACE TO HANG"
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.
