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.

I've got a question about  the composition "Yeh-Yeh" which was a hit for 
Georgie Fame in the mid '60s.  Jon Hendricks recorded it and wrote the lyrics but 
Pat Patrick from the Sun Ra  Arkestra shares a co-composer credit. Does anyone 
know if Sun Ra ever recorded  this - to my knowledge Pat Patrick never 
recorded anything outside of Sun Ra's  orbit.
One of the coolest tunes ever, IMO.
