An Open Letter to NARAS Members

  I’m just about finished with my ballot, and I feel like I’m in sixth grade having just slogged through a standardized test. While I really would appreciate your consideration for my Jazz Ensemble and Composition entry, tonight I have a new agenda. Where social networking has emerged as the primary method with which to get the word out on one’s record,  this process has become overwhelming and difficult. There now are an enormous number of entries in many categories, and managing one’s social network is a full-time job. Yet, as you probably know, some categories were merged with others,…

Keyboard Magazine “Hudson City Suite” Review by Jon Regen

Triple Threat Jazz Composer review-Hudson City Suite

Scott Healy: Triple Threat Jazz Composer / Arranger / Keyboardist …Healy reveals himself to be a composer of serious sonic merit. Keyboardist, composer and arranger Scott Healy surprises with this seductive new release.
