Accordion, he notes, was a far more popular instrument than guitar at that time. All that would change the following year when Beatlemania washed up on the Jersey shore. Juris got his first electric guitar on Christmas of 1964, and by the mid-’60s he was playing cover versions of Jimi Hendrix, Cream and the Temptations material in rock and R&B bands around his area. He discovered jazz in his late teens and subsequently studied with Philly jazz guitar legend Pat Martino.

He was a gorgeous gentleman with shock of bright white hair. I worked my way through the party left, right, left, right, and went up to him and said, “Excuse me my name is Joe DiMaggio. I think you’re absolutely gorgeous. I’m a photographer and I would love to do a portrait of you.” The man I’m talking about was Hugh Brodie and that was the beginning of three decades of friendship with Hugh. I photographed Brodie over the years and every time it was totally exciting.

The statistics are simply staggering: Over a 46-year recording career, the band has issued 36 albums, sold well over 100 million records, and released 20 Top 10 pop and 22 Top 10 adult contemporary singles (15 of which broke the Top 10 on both charts).

It achieved the enviable feat of placing these hits on the Billboard charts in five different decades. 17 of its first 20 albums were certified platinum, nine of those multiplatinum and Chicago 17 hit platinum a whopping six times. The story of Chicago is one of the most paradoxical in the history of American music. Starting out in the late 1960s as a horn-dominated underground rock band verging on the avant-garde in its use of dissonance, jazz voicings and extended compositions, Chicago initially seemed to have little if any chance of AM radio success. Yet, within a year, the group had three Top 10 singles (“Make Me Smile,” “25 or 6 to 4” and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is”), and were selling out arenas from coast to coast.

In the pursuit of their art, they’ve shattered boundaries previously believed unbreakable, they’ve revolutionized the concept of innovation, and have chosen to make the endeavor of living compassionately and courageously the center of their lives. From their early days composing and playing together with Miles Davis in Davis’ Second Great Quintet, to branching out and flourishing in their individual endeavors, Wayne and Herbie’s contributions to the world of music have been nothing short of extraordinary.

ANDY IRVINE GROUP. Andy Irvine Bass Johnny O Vocals/Guitar Maciej Kudla Drums Andy Irvine is a life long blues man, a lover of American soul music, and a devout funk and rock music disciple.


In 2011 he set out to form a band that would musically embody all of his influences while providing a vehicle to tastefully feature his unique and aggressive style of bass guitar. It would a be a raw and rocking power trio, one that played with equal parts traditional respect to the blues and "the song", while brewing with reckless abandon, freedom, and an explosive improvisational attack. Long time friend and musical collaborator Johnny O was the perfect fit for the task of providing dynamic and powerfully soulful singing, while also delivering ripping, rocking, and sometimes mind bending guitar. Milab Microphones - Artists - Rodney Holmes. Rodney Holmes was born in the Bronx in New York City.

It was apparent early on that he had a gift for drawing, and later on painting, and this went hand and hand with his fascination with science fiction and fantasy art, books and films. Rodney assumed that he would grow up to become an illustrator and writer of graphic novels and comic books. Even his early art teachers wanted him to attend an art school for gifted children, but his mother decided not to force him in one direction so early. She wanted Rodney to make that decision for himself when he was old enough. Around The Jazz Internet: Sept. 28, 2012 : A Blog Supreme. Duke Ellington. Dennis Stock.

It is no secret that I am a fan of Woody Shaw. More than any other trumpet player, Shaw’s solos, compositions, his fiery aggressiveness, have always captivated me as both a listener and a trumpet player.

While Shaw’s impact in jazz is well established in pedagogical circles, only a few writers have taken interest in deeper study of Shaw’s work (Gavin 2005), (Prouty 2004) (Richardson 2006), (O’Donnell 2009). The result is that while Shaw’s position in history is unassailable, it is also opaque. Regarded as ‘the last great innovator’, his innovations remain illusive (West 2013). EDDIE "Will" DAVIS.
