A Night Bass'd On A True Story

A Night Bass'd On A True Story

The Barrel Room at the Twisted Vine Bistro in downtown Fort Myers was packed on Saturday, September 28 for bassist Brandon Robertson's CD release gig/celebration. By my head count, it was standing-room-only and then some. In addition to those fortunate to get seats at tables or the bar,people were standing wherever they could find space. It was a well-deserved turnout to note the release of Bass'd on a True Story (Slammin' Media). The Barrel Room was the natural choice for ...

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra - So Far, So Good…with More On The Way

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra - So Far, So Good…with More On The Way

An especially creative jazz ensemble like the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) seldom has time to look back or dwell too long on past achievements. The last couple of years, however, have been marked by several milestone events with even more still to come. In fact, the band has been so busy with performing, recording and overseas commitments that we almost forgot to tell the world about our many diverse projects. The previous 20 months or so have seen the ...

As a result, Rose also had a musical reunion with the trumpeter's big band, which was one of his favorite backing bands before he ...
