It's magnificent jazz again! The young lady in the pic above is Andreya Triana, and she has a wonderful album entitled "Lost Where I Belong" that is definitely worth checking out. It's mellow, jazzy-soul at its finest, so check her out at www.myspace.com/andreyatriana for more info. Independent artists is where the real soul music lives...
Onward to my latest endeavor on the jazzy tip. I find this is great way to introduce newbies to some of that good ole' jazz flavor without overwhelming them. There is plenty of great jazz musicians out there that go unheard, and I feel they deserve some shine too. Good music IS good music, right! I call it JazzPerception and will surely put you in a mellow mood.
