What is up Fredrick?
Yes is the answer to your question. I guess you can tell I just adore my little toys. Are you stayin" busy ? This is the first chance I've had to catch up on my returns. I am still lovin and listening to your music. Especially on those days when I need my Ida time. What a world to just get lost in and just chill out with the right music to help take you there. ....
I'm planning several trips to the USA this year; my boyfriend is a big media bloke: (hands in many pies: TV, Music and Photography companies in London and New York) and wants my company (who am I to argue).
He won't let me give up with the Digital battle, and he has one of Londons best digital facilities in London, so I'm getting lots of help from an expert. He suggests I take the camera to the beaches of Coney Island to record the old world grandeur whilst he attends his production meetings in Manhattan.
Will need a jazz club in the evenings...
So far New York and Vegas planned for Spring... so need to keep my eyes open for gigs.
For the 'old skool black & white I still favour film, shooting with my beloved Nikon FM2. However; I have invested in a Digital Nikon D200, but we hate each other; so the damn thing stays in the cupboard mostly!
I'm still struggling with 21st century technology; and don't believe that becuase the Japanese invented it - that I have to use it!
I'm hoping to do a Spring trip to NY to visit a good friend. We'll be your cheerleading squad!
I call it my baby blue. It's deep royal blue and it's an 02. Are you a vette fan. This is the fourth one I've had. I have two more a black with ground effects 93, White convertable 89 converted into a 95 with a special paint job. Thanks for asking and for your gracious compliment.
Thank you! Should I call you...Fredrick or Federico in Spanish? I am very pleased to know that you liked what you heard! soon I will be adding more of my songs in English so that my friends will be able to understand the language, but I always said that Music is an International language! Its an honor for me to have you visiting my page! Thank you again and you also have a beautiful and prosper new year!
What a collection of music, what a variety. I'm having browser problems at the moment, but I can't wait to hear how you have put all that together in your own style/ I have a lot of different genres in me as well. Stop by sometimes Fredrick.
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!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
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.
