"MR. NICK'S JAZZ CORNER"  

. . . Is a small neighborhood place that has a vast eclectic "Treasure Chest" collection of music from Jazz, Big Bands, Swing, Rhythm & Blues plus the inevitable foot-tapping sounds that feature many talented musicians that have contributed a big part as leaders and sidemen for many big bands, small combos, lounge acts who have toured the country for the past decades.

These musicians have given us the taste from cool to hot and the warmth some ballads that will remain as Memorable Moments of Music with our hearts.

***SPECIAL ADDITION! - Bonus Spotlight Performance #2

"The Queen Of The Blues" 

DINAH WASHINGTON

 

It was during the period from 1949 to 1958, Dinah Washington’s recordings were  consistently among the top 10 hits of the rhythm-and-blues charts.

On various occasions, my friend-booking agent Lew Entin often spoke about some of the national bookings he provided in major venues throughout the East and West Coasts. Lew was also friends with composers Ned Wever, Milton Ager, and Jean Schwartz who wrote “Trust in Me” which became a Billboard chart hit for Dinah Washington’s rendition.

 

 *Spontaneous. . . *Improvisational. . . *Reflective. . . 

 - there are many shadings to the musical concept of Jazz -

**The spontaneities and "improv" at the heart of Jazz are endless.
The intention of this book "JAZZ Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" is to give all Jazz aficionados (novice, professional or non-musician) a candid view and special flavor for the popular Jazz musicians that have been musical legends and\or household names for past decades  . . . whether or not they played a great part in Jazz history or have been neglected and omitted from the record books.
