ps: Ted Rosenthal played with Gerry Mulligan and recorded an excellent album for CTI, "Calling You", recently reissued in Europe. Recorded at Van Gelder's Studio, it featured Donald Harrison, Dave Weckl, Bobby Hutcherson, and my friend Lew Sollof, among others;
Jay Leonhart has some delightful solo CDs ("Salamander Pie", for the DMP label, is my personal favorite) and I had to pleasure to attend many of his performances in the Brunch time at New York's "Blue Note" - he's also an accomplished singer, besides a great composer in the style of Dave Frishberg;
Victor Lewis is one of the Top 10 drummers in the current jazz scene and has a new DVD out in Japan with the Manhattan Jazz Quintet.
Ann's recording "Signature" (After 9) features the signature songs of the great jazz legends of the 20th century, backed by Kenny Barron, Frank Wess, Lewis Nash, and guest artist Wynton Marsalis.
In the aftermath of September 11th, Ann composed the stirring anthem, "I Believe in America", which she performed on Larry King Live and released as a CD single, arranged and produced by Eumir Deodato.
So, don't miss these gigs!
