A New Leaf

A New Leaf
Pianist. Composer. Teacher. Photographer.
Graphic Designer*.
Culinary Artiste.

Did I just say multi-talented and extraordinary

female ?

A New Leaf featuring guitarist/husband
Noel will appeal
to those of you who like 70's
Fusion and
beyond, because this CD has strong
Indian sensibilities
intervowen seamlessly
throughout while retaining a
American Jazz feel.

Take a listen to the free MP3 samples-
I loved it, especially
since it feels like a Return
to Forever all over again.

This dear friend/foster mother/guardian and
very hip lady passed away in her sleep last week.
My memories of her are many precious ones
and cover a span of 49 years. Unbelievable.

The Jazzy King

My old friend Pom in Bangkok sent me an awesome link which
has provided me with some real enlightenment regarding the
great King (of Thailand, pictured with a lesser 'King' bottom
left in picture).

So I join in saying , ' Long Live The King ! '

The King
For six decades, His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej
has inspired, entertained and encouraged the Thai people in countless ways.
One of these is through music, and His Majesty’s songs, ranging from jazz to
classical to patriotic anthems, have been performed not just in Thailand but
internationally by some of the world’s leading musicians and orchestras.

The Bangkok Post, as part of a series celebrating the 60th anniversary
this week of the world's longest reigning Monarch.

Lionel Hampton : “He is simply the coolest king in the land.”

Read and be amazed by the Jazzy King
