Since it's recently dawned on me that everyone isn't on Facebook or Myspace, here's a clip of me singing a relatively unknown standard called I'll Never Be The Same from last week's performance with Matt Ray (piano) and Andrew Hall (bass) for A.C.T.I.O.N.'s Harlem Salon in Hamilton Heights, co-sponsored by Jazzmobile. (A.C.T.I.O.N. is an acronym for A Coalition To Improve Our Neighborhood.) What a beautiful night we had. (Thanks for videotaping everything, Paula!)
This is one of the songs that will be on the CD that I'm co-producing with JC Hopkins. Our hostess Helen was sweet enough to invite us back to her breathtakingly gorgeous brownstone for a return engagement when the CD is ready to be released so that we can have a lovely uptown launch.
House parties are definitely where it's at, folks. Especially when they're this elegant.
