Jazz à la Mode is being pre-empted for both conventions, so I'm grabbing an 
unanticipated 2nd summer vacation; guess which week I've elected to not sit 
on the board?

> Resonance Records has re-serviced MIKE GARSON's CONVERSATIONS WITH MY 
> FAMILY [ ****1/2 Downbeat '' A glowing achievement''] stickered with some 
> fine jazz tracks. This is our first official solicitation for adds (due to 
> Reference Recordings having a title out in the spring which we did not 
> want to create any conflict with).   GARSON is a piano and keyboard 
> wizard, who has worked with Stan Getz, Stanley Clarke, his band Freeflight 
> and many others. There are some gorgeous tracks ready for airplay.  As a 
> bonus, the DVD features Peter Erskine and the sadly, late great LA bass 
> player, Dave Carpenter + a preview of Resonance artist Lori Bell on flute.
>
> Resonance has just released Pittsburgh native CATHY ROCCO's debut YOU'RE 
> GONNA HEAR FROM ME. Check out her take on ''Autumn Leaves'', ''Come Rain 
> or Shine'' and ''Give Me One Reason'' (with a guest turn on organ from 
> John Beasley).   ROCCO is not some newbie-want-to-be a-jazz-singer.  ''She 
> is a formidable swinger'' Will Friedwald, New York Sun, from the liner 
> notes, which are worth a read.  Cathy is supported by Tamir Hendelman on 
> piano, Dave Carpenter on bass and Vic Stevens on drums.  CATHY ROCCO has a 
> big voice and a keen sense of drama.

> ...and if you haven't yet added ANDREAS OBERG MY FAVORITE GUITARS, why 
> not? as fine a guitar debut as jazz has seen this year!
