What a Broadway show it would be with music from Wynton Marsalis.. He is a Trumpeter, Composer, won the PULITZER prize for music. He was on " Live from Lincoln Center" PBS last night. I was so depressed. He changed my mood.
Born in New Orleans from a family of music.
Well, it was such FEEL GOOD music, I was clapping to the beat, foot tapping. Jelly Roll Morton, how could anyone be depressed..
Just love Ragtime and Dixieland music.
My Husband was a Jazz Sax player.
Watching the show, OMG! it's Mark O' Conner on the fiddle too.
Thank you PBS and all the trust funds and endowments that make it possible.
Now Don Nemer, he is just fabulous. It must be great to put out music that can change a persons mood. I was so happy after this show. Just the Medicine I needed at the time I needed it.
JAZZ is a Feel Good Music. All you guys out there get into it. Snap your fingers and clap your hands, tap your feet. Get some blood movin..
Marcus Roberts, from Florida was a Quest. he played the Piano also.
I bet I am the oldest blogger around. So Listen up Kiddies,, get yourself an education on JAZZ
I love ragtime, The Duke - Monk- Charlie-Gillespie-O' Conner etc. Does anyone remember Arnett Cobb- Out of Houston. We had a Jazz Club there called the Show Biz.. Everyone you can think of did a number there. Plus comic 's Singers like Tony Bennett--- on and on. Wishing you all a Happy and Sunny Day, Pain free too .
