Hi Nick,

I loved the trumpet solo by Phillip Harper on "A Portrait of Jennie"
from their first Verve recording titled, "The Harper Brothers."  I'm
sure I'll think of more.

This week's sponsor:  Resonance Records


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.

watch for:
Christian Howes with Roger Kellaway ''Heartfelt''
Toninho Horta: ''To Jobim With Love


Attention Jazz musicologists! I'm working on a project and need your
help. Do you know any memorable sax or trumpet solos that are without
accompaniment?  A cappella.   

It can either be a complete tune or a solo from a group recording. I'm
aware of Sonny Rollins's solo sax record, and have a few choice solos of
my own.  Just lookin' for more. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
