B.B. King Newport Jazz Festival 2012
OH Nooo!! June will NOT go quite as we planned. Our pianist, Frank Wilkins injured his shoulder a couple of weeks ago. We decided we’d postpone our June 10th gig at The Lilypad. Since we are booked there for Aug 19th and Oct 21st, we felt we could pick another date to replace June 10th.
Frank is doing well and feels he could return on Aug 19th. I’ll keep you posted.
"The Jazz Room " presents Moments in Jazz History
Since 2006 "The Jazz Room" has covered the Newport Jazz Festival. It’s been a thrill to hear so many of the great artists through the years.
I’ve been going through my archive of photos through the years and realized how fortunate to have heard and, in some cases, interview so many wonderful jazz folk !!
I put together a video of a few of my all time favorite photos / artists and added a little music. Here’s a link to Moments in Jazz History

An Actual Vacation!
This eNews is labeled June and July as for the first time in 5 years we’re going to the UK for a Watson-Jones Family Reunion and to celebrate my husband’s birthday with the family. If we stay in one place long enough I’ll post some photos on the Blog page of my website. You may also check out Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
