> This week's sponsor: Resonance Records
> GOING FOR ADDS NOW:
> 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
> Lazaro's mention of Dizzy gave me an idea...some trivia for fun...
> Dizzy was in a band with the great Mario Bauza and this is when Diz
> started experimenting with Afro Cuban music. Obviously an important
> development in jazz. Who's band was it? Easy one...
> Duke Ellington's first work in film was short "Black and Tan" in 1929 but
> it was the next film in 1930 that really exposed his orchestra to a much
> wider audience. They went to Hollywood to appear. What was the film?
> Perhaps not so...
> No internet peeking....
