all that jazz

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to branford marsalis!!!

jazz is my favorite music genre.  i listen to wbgo - 88.3 fm.  this station comes straight out of newark, new jersey.  i love both the marsalis' brothers - wynton and branford.  

some of my favorite jazz legends include:  thelonious monk, billie holiday, charlie parker, dave brubeck, duke ellington, john coltrane, miles davis, dizzy gillespie, tony bennett, sarah vaughan, ella fitzgerald, al jarreau, harry connick jr., david sanborn, nancy wilson, count basie, frank sinatra, colman hawkins, kenny g., and of course the grandaddy of them all - louis armstrong. there are many more, these are just off the top of my head.  

but, of course, there would be no jazz without the blues.  so next post will be about my favorite blues singers/musicians

if you enjoy jazz, who are your favorites?  cheers!!

fond memories II

you will remember a while back i posted a picture of my mother.  many thanks for all the lovely comments about her.  now let me introduce you to the other half of me - my father.  i think he was in his early twenties when this picture was take.  a handsome, kind, man who valued family, work and education.

the good certainly die young.  

have a super duper weekend.  cheers!!
