Yoginis Friday Aug 28 at Third Place Books

Hi Y'all!

The Yoginis are very happy to be returning to Third Place Books where we have always had fun stretching out on our original music while the people dance, eat, shop or do whatever they do. Bring the youngsters they usually dance up by the stage too. All ages, plenty of refreshments in the food court.

Yogi and the Yoginis
Friday Aug 28th 7:30 - 10:00pm
Third Place Books Stage in Lake Forest Park Center
17171 Bothell Way NE (at Ballinger way)
Lake Forest Park, WA 98155
The Yoginis are: Yogi McCaw - keys, compositions; Burt Boice - Bass, compositions; Samia Panni - vocals and percussion; Bob Antolin - Flutes, Saxes, Guitars; JC Johnny Conga - Latin percussion; and Ed mays - Drumset

See you at the gig!

Also, I will have the new Yogi and the Yoginis CD - Terra Shivaiya - Six east, Six West, recorded half in India and half in the USA. The CD garnered rave reviews as the featured CD on the Jazz Network Worldwide, including an outstanding review by jazz writer Steve Getz, who is Stan Getz's son. Everyone that has one is very happy with it (as far as I know so), and a number of people have bought several at once.

The CD features our unique approach to east/west jazz fusion, plus a number of great sambas and Samia singing the gorgeous Songbird bossa nova that many people say the love when they hear us perform it. It also garnered rave reviews by DJs Sharon Stevens and former music programming director Barbie-Danielle DeCarlo of KBCS 91.3FM Bellevue Community radio.

So get one of those while you're there with us!

Plus - if you're still reading - here's a bonus for you: an older Yoginis You Tube with the late great Mike Deasy, Jr on Sax, recorded at the 2007 Hempfest!

Sunday Jazz Jam 5:30pm Seattle Mobile Espresso

Hi Everyone,

The Sunday Jazz Jam hosted by Jazz Montage at the Seattle Mobile Espesso is happening again this Sunday Aug 2nd 5:30 - 7:30pm.

Jazz Montage is Nelea Lloyd, vocalist, and whip cracking band boss, Chris Busa on wind whatchamacallit thingy that makes all those confounded noises, Burt Boice on bass and assorted kitchen implements, Ed Mays beating the tins, and a piano student called Yogi.

This week we are happy to have Eric Hullander covering the bass chair. Eric is very good and has played jazz and Brazilian music all over Seattle. In fact, he will be on the gig with Sambatuque later Sunday evening (meet me at that gig too).

So y'all come now, hear?
