At the last IAJE I took a train ride up to The Bronx to walk my old stompin' grounds near Yankee Stadium.

Oh yeah........ delicious!

This week's JPL sponsor: Outside Shore Music Wendy Fopeano ''Raining On The Roses''
''Wendy Fopeano sings with depth, creativity, and soul.'' Fred Hersch
Considered an exceptional singer by her peers, Wendy has surrounded herself with some of Denver's world-class talent for her second release on Outside Shore. The music spans a wide range of moods, rhythms, and tempos, from the exquisite beauty of Caminhos Cruzados to the wild ride of Caravan to the upbeat funkiness of David Murrays' ''Morning Song.'' Raised in Kansas City, Wendy started out playing bass, piano, trumpet and guitar before choosing voice as her main instrument. She currently hosts a show on jazz89 KUVO every weekday from 1 to 4 pm.
The veteran percussionist, Sephardic Bobby Matos originally from The Bronx,
living in L A since the late 70s has released a new album, Bobby Matos's
Afro-Latin Ensemble for Life Force titled Gratitude. As always another high
caliber album with a fine homage to John W. Coltrane-Bronx Trane, nice take
on All Blues and other provocative selections including what I am sure is
the first tribute to egg creams in jazz, an original Bobby tune named Uncle
David's Egg Creams. A sidebar, as a tribute to his dual heritage, Matos'
long time publishing firm for his own compositions is Café con Bagels which
reminds me of the zany Slim Gaillard song, Dunkin' Bagels(Splash! in the
Hmmm, all of a sudden I have a craving for an egg cream, I have seltzer,
milk and chocolate syrup, I need to find me some Fox's to be 100% authentic.
