I have heard Shirley Horn sing before. Her voice us very mellow and pretty. She creates a soothing sound that the ears can just love.
What I did not know about her is that she also played the keys and played it very well. I discovered this fact when I started watching this "Antonio Carlos Jobim All-Star Tribute."
What music! Everything about this program is cool. The sounds. The round up of artists and the mere fact that the concert is hosted by Herbie Hancock.
The diva thing will always stand out to me. Just one more thing to love and appreciate about music. You never know what new and exciting thing you will come across; even if it is something that is old like this 1995 DVD.

That was the thought I had when Sean Battle stepped on to the scene at the Jazz Poetry Cafe at Brooklyn Nights. He walked into the venue ready to have a good time but little did I know the good time he was about to bring into the Brooklyn scape from New Jersey.
His image was like a school professor before a class ready to teach. His introduction drew you in immediately. His words were clear and concise and his energy was so catchy that he had the whole room electrified.
He is inspiring to other poets in a sense because he lets them know that you do not have to say
Much to get your poetry across. He proved this even more when he was a featured poet at the Jazz Poetry Cafe at Brooklyn Nights in May 2014.
