The soul of a jazz club: Tony Rosales

In Artist of the Month on January 9, 2016 at 12:14 pm

Dear friends,

Happy new year to all of you!

This time I would like to bring the light on what I call “the soul of a jazz club”. You know, these musicians hidden by a piano in a corner of a club. Without them, no music, with them, we feel like home! This month I present you Tony Rosales. He grew up in Long Island, New York but it’s in Carolina that he continued to cultivate his sound. You can listen to him 6 evenings per week in the Midtown Bistro in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

He has a new album and I like so much the titles :

Do not hesitate to have a look at his complete new album on the following link : Album

Tony, I wish you the best for 2016 and I hope you will continue to play, improvise and create music for a long time with your golden fingers!



A book about the history of a jazz club: The Jazz Corner

In Jazz Book on February 23, 2013 at 12:07 pm

Dear friends,

A new book about jazz is always a fantastic thing BUT a new book about the history of a jazz club is so special that I have to share with you  this big news !!!

The Jazz Corner is a club situated in South Carolina at Hilton Head Island. This club follows the patterns of the famous jazz history but it is also a work in progress !

Including 2 CD (Cheek to cheek, Amazing Grace, Route 66, A Foggy Day, Hot Hot Hot……..), this book offers as first chapter an introduction to Jazz History, then the Battle of Swing and a chronology of Jazz.

The author presents what is so important for me : the musicians ! The first part describes the Bandleaders, then the sidemen, the master musicians and the future master musicians.

To end this book, a very surprising section: the Cuisine :-). The Jazz Corner is also a place where you can eat and the best recipes will have no secrets for you. Appetizers like Crab Cakes, The Entrées like Spiced Peach Butter Sauce, the Desserts with the famous Carrot Cake or the Crème Brûlée  will help you to combine great food moments and the pleasure of listening the CD’s. You maybe know that I’m French and most of the recipes come from the French tradition but with little variations hmmmm :-).

I received it as a present and if I was rich, it would be my pleasure to offer it to you, but… I’m only rich in jazz news and in big smiles.

You can buy it via amazon.

Enjoy !
