From the wreckage of the failed Oasis Contemporary Jazz Awards, good things are beginning to flow. The special music showcase featuring the combined talents of Jarred, Greg Manning and Vincent Ingala has been switched from the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego to the wonderful Anthology on India Street where it will take place on Saturday March 12 from noon until 4-00 PM. Anthology is southern California?s preeminent music venue and, in addition to these three original artists, event organiser Bruce Nazarian tells me that guitarist Brad Rambur plus at least six more stars of smooth jazz are expected to perform.
This will not only be a spectacular show in a stunning setting but will also provide the perfect antidote to the disappointment of the failed Oasis promotion.
Surprises are definitely on the cards so with time running out go to http://TDG2010.eventbrite.com and reserve your place now. This is not a free event but with a donation of $20 you will receive a complementary copy of the brand new compilation CD The Digital Guy's Outstanding Tracks Of 2010.
The album is a compilation of the very best music played over the last twelve months on Bruce Nazarian's Digital Guy Radio Show and as well as featuring tracks from Manning, Ingala and Jaared, the collection includes tunes from, among others, Dave Koz. Part of the proceeds from the sale of every CD will go to benefit school music programs in the Californian cities of Glendale and Burbank. The underlying plan is to extend this support to other parts of the USA and The Digital Guy Foundation has been set up to help make this happen.
