> 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....
