There is nothing more moving and historically insightful as the life and journey of a jazz musician. It seems like a forgettable genre for a young adult in this generation, but having a moment to listen to and be inspired opened up a different world of music. At the end of October 2012, the Live Music Movement Foundation presented its first Musical Experience Salon with jazz trombonist Garnett Brown—reflecting on his early career and his many accomplishments.
A composer, arranger, and award-winning musician, Brown discussed his musical legacy with professors and musicians Leslie Drayton and Keith Fiddmont. Touching on his early career, Drayton began the conversation reminiscing about the time he met Brown in 1974 during a Marvin Gaye engagement.
Live Music Movement Foundation offered guests the opportunity to review the December 16, 2012 musical event with the chance to win two free tickets to an upcoming musical event and to have their review published on the LMMF website and in publications. Congratulations to guest Nicole Powell for submitting the following review.
2nd Annual Jazz Party with vocalist Lynne Fiddmont
Tonight I was blessed by the talents of jazz vocalist Lynne Fiddmont, who’s sung back- up for Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Michael Bublé. During her performance, Fiddmont sang spirituals, R&B, Christmas songs — and one of the most beautiful covers of Stevie Wonder’s “All I Do” I’ve ever heard!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
