Janiva Magness in my hometown !

4 posts in this topic

Hi there !

i just saw Janiva play this afternoon, in my home town, at the Edinburgh International Jazz & Blues Festival.

Wow ! What a great singer and lovely person too.

Unfortunately, the festival organisers wouldn't go as far as to provide them a Hammond organ on the stage and could only offer an old Nord.

Word got around on Facebook as to who might have a Hammond, that her keyboard player, Red Young, could play, and my name came up.

I don't have a real Hammond any more but I was able to offer my Hammond SK2 and Ventilator.

It was really nice to see and hear a real professional play my SK2 - so I know how it does and can sound like !!

And Red was a great piano player too, not to mention a lovely guy.

Great day out, in a great venue, with my two young boys seeing their first real band gig, and great music too !

Red's a great player and a super nice cat. I was with her for four years but bowed out at the end of last year. Glad you got to see the show!

Bowed out? Did I miss that announcement?  I was planning to reach out to you Jim about Janiva's appearance at the Bradenton Blues Festival but now I guess I'll have to consider going only to see her. :mellow:

I never really announced it but I left after our touring season ended in Oct 2014. You may want to check with me if I'll be with her as the date approaches, though, as I've done some gigs with her this year as a fill-in, including an upcoming show in DC at the end of this month.
