JAZZ MUSING

Posted on January 25, 2013 with 0 comments
My ... How fast the time goes! I'm enjoying my 'freedom' and working on my 'goals' ~  Paying dues like everyone else in this business! ~ I've been writing as well as working on some new tunes to learn, from a list of 'request' and am seriously considering the title REQUEST for my next CD .. Hanging out at JAM sessions is paying off.  I met some nice gentlemen who are serious about perserving the JAZZ experience here in the LA area..snagged a good gig..I hope all of you are mindful of your health. It seems to be worth more then all the money in the world!
A huge THANK YOU to those of you who are buying my music on the internet. I'm loving CD Baby..  Independent Musicians work very hard to be recoginized! So please continue to support JAZZ and its makers. Maybe a 'Grammy' one day.
THANK YOU for stoping by.
 

Keep Jazz Alive

Posted on May 1, 2012 with 0 comments
    Well everyone.  There are many of us dedicated to keeping Jazz alive.  Its so sad when the venues shrink and you get cancelled because the owner wants Rock and Roll.  This past week-end I spent a little time at one of my favorite places to perform, CAFE 322 in beautiful Sierra Madre California.  Sadly it was to say goodbye.  Yes they closed their doors. No more Jazz or anything else at CAFE 322.  On July 5, 2005 they opened and I was the first Jazz vocalist to sing on their stage.  What a nice place.  The food and libations were excellent.  Saturday evening I sat in with Chuck Manning and a friend from my college days, Chad Edwards. Bye Bye Blackbird was my farewell song.  Last Jazz vocalist to sing on their stage.  That's not good. I will miss their Maragurita Pizza for sure.  Thanks Mario!
