Breaking News - Announcement


Hello my friends, I am in the unpleasant position to announce sad news. The legendary, prodigious drummer and singer of jazz music Grady Tate died on Sunday at his home in Manhattan. He was 85. Grady Tate has affected my musical life because for many years I was looking for a rare vinyl record which includes a fantastic song that today is one of my all-time favorite songs. In 1984 the composer, producer and guitarist of jazz music, Rudy Stevenson booked the A&R Recording Studio in New York City so as Grady Tate and Gwynne Micheals-Hearns to record his songs "Love Wind" and "It's Time To Settle Down". Both songs were included on the vinyl record which was released on Zeus Records. During my effort to find the vinyl record, Rudy Stevenson and the trumpet player Barrie Lee Hall Jr died. I had tried to come in contact with them before they passed away.  I found the vinyl record in 2013.

Rick Bowen & Teresa Von - Want My Love 1980 (45")




Helllo my friends, I had the pleasure to present Rick Bowen and his album "Want My Love" three years ago. The album includes some nice songs with a variety of music styles.


I recently discovered a rare vinyl record 45" that includes the song "Want My Love". This song is a duet with Rick Bowen & Teresa Von. It is a different version than the album's one. In the disco version of the album the female vocalist Sue Robinson accompanies Rick Bowen on vocals. I came in contact with Rick Bowen himself and he told me that this vinyl record 45" was released at the same time with the album in 1980. Even though a year later disco music was dead, they tried to create a disco song for the album. However the final result was excellent!


The previous Sunday I included this rare song (version 45") on my playlist on the web radio Coni-OnAir.
