Can't get enough of Sherma Andrews' music?
Well, neither can we! Check out this video from another performance of hers, here live at the Jazz Forum club.

In Memory of Wallace Roney Having known Wallace for almost 40 years, I’m incredibly saddened that he’s no longer with us. Rest Easy, Wallace. Condolences to Wallace’s family, friends and musical colleagues. Here is some music from his last sets at Jazz Forum, Tarrytown during his 59th Birthday weekend, May 24 & 25, 2019. – Mark Morganelli Feat.

Something A Little Different… Thanks to Zeke, originally from Tarrytown (currently in Elmsford) for sharing this super-creative video from his group’s latest project ‘Brush Strokes,’ their jazz/hip-hop album. This is “The New” by Four Elements & Beyond (Freak Tha Monsta, MothaBug, Miggs Son Daddy). You Dig?!
Joao Gilberto & Stan Getz – Full Album (1963)
Getz/Gilberto is an album by American saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian guitarist João Gilberto, featuring pianist and composer Antônio Carlos Jobim, who also composed many of the tracks, including Garota de Ipanema & Desafinado. Getz/Gilberto was released in March 1964 by Verve Records and is considered the record that popularized bossa nova worldwide and was one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time. It was one of the main inspirations for me as I recorded by latest Brasil! Double-CD. Enjoy the Masters! – Mark Morganelli

Last week’s question was: “What Jazz tune makes you feel most at home and why?” Thank you for sharing your stories with us!
Frank Pedulla replied…
I would say “Stardust” by Hoagy Carmichael, including its somewhat lengthy Rubato introduction, because it moves so smoothly and elegantly throughout its range, making it so relaxing. In my opinion, the tune “Stardust” can be comparable to the traditional American Folk song “I Dream of Genie With the Light Brown Hair” by Stephen Foster, and as well, the traditional Irish folk song, “Danny Boy”.
