[JPL] Value in Posting Play Lists

I certainly was not implying that the JPL might go away because of 
posting playlists. 

I said we should use it wisely so that we don't risk losing it.  How 
many of you are willing to pay for your JPL membership?  There are over 
600 members of the JPL.  There have been less than 50 members who have 
made a contribution to keep this service going.  The maintenance cost 
and administration for this service exceeds the funds accumulated thus 
far.  Think about it and vote with your funds.  ALOHA  Tom

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.

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.
