I've been here 5 weeks and I got a Paying gig in the village--2 sets--I'm happy. Many, many possible collaborations. I feel at home here...I will give your info to my agent, he has an office in Hong Kong.
That's great to hear. I currently have one of my artist, Garth Ploog co-writing with another songwritier in the USA. They work via skype to combine each others studio. On one of Garth's current original duets, we have a women from California singing with him, his bass player, who is from Australia, and is currently in Las Vegas has contributed as well via the net. It's an amasing medium to share creativity.
Again, Thank you for your music.
Thank you Aysha. Your vibe is right also. My mute trumpet would sound great with your lush voice. Thanks again for your support and I hope to come to support your shows or in any capacity that you might need my expertise. We are not far from each other. Peace Love and Blessing.
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!!
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."
