Hello Mr. Winters,
Happy Jazzy New Year!
Are you still on the radio? I'd love to send my project to you.
Congrats on your stellar career-- wow! I'm a radio babe turned jazz artist in recent years. Stay jazzy and have an awesome 2010!
Hey Brother Al, how goes everything? I see you live in the Atlanta area. I'm a Visual Artist, and I'll be doing the National Black Arts Festival July 31 - Aug. 2, 2009 out their. I'd like to invite you out to the festival if you're schedule permits. Hopefully you can come and check me out, and get a look at my work.
I am writing to inquire about what I need to do to secure airplay for my client's CD. Kevin Whalum's sophomore project was produced by George Duke and Rex Rideout and is a great work. I have published a few of his trax on his JNW site, or I can send them to you, via email, if that be your wish. Please reach out to me and let me know your thoughts and if receiving airplay is a possibility.
Thank you, Al, for your wonderful compliment! Maybe I can perform live with you in the audience one day. Music is my passion, my all, my healing therapy, and my responsibility as in spreading Love, helping to heal my audience, I'm so blessed!
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.
