I'm very happy to be a part of this network.  I invite all to come to the performance by the Lost Civilizations experimental music project featuring Mike Sebastian (sax), Sam Lohman (drums) and Patrick Whitehead (as well as myself on basscello) at the Black Squirrel's Tap Room on Sunday, July 19; details:   http://goo.gl/tIzh1N .  Also on the bill is the DC Improvisers Collective (also featuring Mike Sebastian on sax) and Utenzil.  It's going to be quite an evening -- and it's free!

George, thank you and thank GOD for blessing you with insight to create WDCJN!   The Network has been my connection to the greatest Jazz Legends alive today and Emerging Jazz Icons.  Many of whom I've met and collaborated with over the last 3 yrs.  Its a Wonderful thing when Creativity collides with History, Experience and Cosmic Energy and that's exactly the vortex you've created with the WDCJN.  Keep letting your light Shine Brother,......... Keep letting it SHINE!

Thank you, George! I am so excited about the extended love and I, like Derryl have been  trying to figure out the short cut to share with some of my facebook family this wonderful venue. I think the best way maybe to send the message from my yahoo mail to my facebook timeline and then forward it to those whom I would like to invite. Do you agree?

Thank you George!  As a native Washingtonian I am delighted to be among my fellow musicians on the WDCJN!

A Member of the Washington DC Jazz Network

Benny Sharoni, an Israeli-born, Boston-based tenor saxophonist, can energize even the largest, most lackluster venue with his big-toned sound and ebullient phrasing, packed with intense emotion and spirituality, a vibrant hybrid of the hip and the holy."

First Wooden Clock by: BENJAMIN BANNEKER 

Using as a model a pocket watch he had borrowed from a merchant or traveler, Banneker carved wooden replicas of each piece and used the parts to make a clock that struck hourly. He completed the clock in 1753, at the age of 21. Due to its precision (it struck every hour, on the hour, and continued to do so nearly forty years) the clock brought fame to young Banneker. Thus he began a watch and clock repair business. The clock continued to work until his death. Read more....

Notice the resemblence! Who are we? Why did they destroy our Pyramids?


Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
