8/17: Terry Gibbs’s “Jammin’ at the Gibbs House” Reaches #1 on Jazz Radio Charts!!!

Congratulations to Terry Gibbs for reaching #1 on the jazz radio charts with his newest album, “Jammin’ at the Gibbs House!” Anything is possible, even at 92 years old!

Here is what Terry’s son, Gerry, had to say about the exciting news:
“WELL THIS A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT FOR MY 93 YEAR OLD POPS AND MYSELF ………………………………………………………Today my Pops CD TERRY GIBBS 92 YEARS YOUNG (which I am on) WENT TO #1 on the jazz radio charts across the country ..It is the last thing he will ever record and I am so proud and happy for him. He had been in retirement and I talked him into recording for the label I have been with for 10 years and he did and now he has hit #1 at 93 years of age…YIPEEE……An on my end – today I left the charts after 24 weeks with my newest CD “Thrasher People” which made it my 4th cd to go to #1 in a row on the jazz radio charts . Today I found out that even though I left the charts for this year so far my Thrasher People CD Weather Or Not – IS THE #1 MOST PLAYED CD IN THE COUNTRY ON RADIO so far this year…..POPS & SON TEAM…..We were failures last week but for this week were not……Chances are good though that we will both go back to complete failures next week !”
Way to go Terry!

A Woman of Heart and Mind

Jazz talent Debra Mann interprets

The textured sounds of Joni Mitchell

 

It is rare indeed to catch a sighting of Joni Mitchell. The Canadian songwriter, chanteuse and sublime talent has not really toured much, or released an album of new material for that matter. The last time that happened was 2007. So what’s a Joni fan to do? Catch Debra Mann.

 

Mann is a Joni fan from way back, so much so that she’s taken to performing her songs. The Providence-based jazz artist will be performing a night of jazz-tinged interpretations of Mitchell’s music at Chan’s. The combination makes good sense, considering the fact that Mann is an outstanding jazz performer and so much of Mitchell’s oeuvre resonates with generous jazz overtones.

 

Debra Mann, pianist and vocalist, has performed in the northeast corner of the U.S. for three decades. Her own artistry was deeply influenced by Joni’s music—from her folk years through her more than deep exploration into jazz.

 

The reclusive Mitchell is widely regarded as one of the most influential and revered songwriters of our time. Her category-defying style links the worlds of acoustic music with rock, jazz, and classical. Her lyrical sense, phrasing and poetic imagery are as visual as they are musical. Certainly, with no chance of seeing the original, why not enjoy the next best thing?

 

This is not Mann’s first shot at covering Mitchell’s work. In fact, the first few times were so memorable that her fans were asking for an encore. As an added attraction, Debra’s band features the mega talents of Dino Govoni (sax), Steve DeConti (guitar), Dave Zinno (bass), and Marty Richards (drums).

 

So come by Chan’s for a night of great music as we celebrate the work of a gifted and influential artist being covered by a gifted and supreme talent in her own right. Ladies and gentleman, on piano and voice, Debra Mann!
