Jazz in my life

My how time flies
Arnett played at our club. The Show Biz
in Houston.

At our Supper Club
"The Show Biz"
Main and Holcome
Houston. 1960's
Kenny left Don the
Drummer right.
Bobby in center
Vicky Carr the Singer had a crush
on Don. We went to Mass together.


 "Bobby" Doyle (August 14, 1939 – July 30, 2006) was an American singer,
 bassist, and pianist. He is best known for his early work with  a young Kenny Rogers 
Years later in Miami, Lionel was playing at the Eden Roc Hotel, After the show I went back stage and got him to write a note for Arnett who was so very sick. He was so nice and said he would call him.

Met Louie Armstrong in the late 1960's at the Famous Fairmont in SanFrancisco
My Dentist's wife had told me the excitement of the Hotel after WWII. Then a
good friend who used to work for Dorthy Draper told me how they redesigned
the Hotel about the same time. Mr Armstrong was so very nice.


This all started after watching a documentary
JAZZ
by Ken Berns, Have you ever seen his work
all his films are wonderful.

Gosh I am really OLD!

Joanny, daughter Renee bought me herb scissors, they have them at crate and barrel. Really something new and saves time great for stocks. Heck, you could even make pesto if you like it chunky. I use a food processor. Rain today and we need it, a HOT Summer. No one listened to GORE.
have a happy day. yvonne

Good morning, Yvonne!

Music is youth to me. You remember the jazz age, I remember rock 'n roll and mostly, DISCO during my teen years. I am getting up there in age too, but when "my" music comes on through my ear phones (buds, as they are called today), I am 17 all over again.

ENJOY!

Music is always a nice topic to talk or write about.
Jazz music is extremely versatile. It comes in all forms: instrumental, vocal, relaxing, rhytmical, you name it.
Louis Armstrong, whom you had the privilege and luck to meet - was a great trumpeteer and musician. His influence on the development of jazz music is enormous, and hias personality - one of a kind.

Hi Yvonne

I looked the herb scissors up and they look really useful. I have an abundance of strawberries and will make freezer jam tomorrow, in the late fall and winter it is so nice to take a jar out the freezer and share with friends and family over brunch or tea,,, place on a simple piece of toast and savor the sweet fruits of summer past.. we can share cyber space... smile,
