Fabulous, Dimitri! Great additional component to Geni's Musician Plaza. Like this idea of musician and music lovers, sharing music via "Backstage Chat"! It's something this non-musician does all the time--share music videos with friends, only I was emailing the links!

Thanks Dimitri,
good tune to start off the day!

Here is a song my step-dad wrote while he was touring with the Maynard Ferguson Band ...he is on guitar

I starts off very clean, but than later on, they really start to groove :) Like it! Why do I immediately think of Frank Zappa, when I hear the xylophone in combo with the mix of styles LOL?

I remember him writing that song at the dining room table when I was a kid. I think he toured with Maynard in the late 80' have a good ear. I didn't even notice the Xylophone in the percussion, had to listen several times. I am not sure if Frank Zappa is any influence, but my step dad is a great musician and can play anything.

Thanks for sharing the video, Jamey! I like the song very much! Is your step-dad still an active musician?

Again, thank you! Great pick-me-up!

Jamey, that's a sweet story about being present when your step-dad penned that song. Really nice memory to carry with you.

Welcome to the Musicians Plaza Backstage Chat, Renée! Though not a musician, I'll poke my head in every now and then, simply bc I enjoy music of all genre, and like to follow creative folk making music. Yes, I'm a bit of a groupie!

I watched some of your music videos, and Dimitri's, as well, and was quite impressed!

Rock on!

Yes, the art of music varies just like visual art. Love this little Back Stage chat @ Dimitri Gazan

Theresa Renée Eléna Tossas-Cox you have a beautiful voice.

Private User Thank you, it was nice to see my step-dad at work.

I recently joined the Jazz Greats section of Geni, and @Erica Elizabeth Howton was kind enough to create this profile and allow me to be a manager after I asked her why Coleman Hawkins was not in the Jazz Greats. I love his music and he was definitely and innovator. Have a listen to one of my favorites. Great that there is film on him too.


Have fun friends. =)

Jamey, I appreciate Coleman Hawkins as one of the all time masters in jazz. Happy to see him acknowledged here on Geni with a profile, thanks to your input.

Don't see a profile page for Maynard Ferguson, though; is that now in the works?

Private User

I have not found one yet, Private User... please let me know if you come across one for Maynard Furgeson, thanks. As a regular member of Geni, I don't think have the ability to create one for him.

Maynard Ferguson tree started

His parents were musicians in Canada, and I have no special access to Canadian records. So hopefully others will jump in and help tree build ?

Private User That's Great! As we musicians all know, without the groupies, there are no intensly awesome Concerts & no industry to speak of!! 😉👍🏼 And besides this, your daughter is carrying that torch, well! 💘

Private User Thank you, so much!!! 😘💖 and your step-dad, is also, quite coooool!!! 😎👍🏼

Erica Howton I'll do a bit of digging & see If I can't turn something up, too! 😊😘💝

Thanks for starting the Maynard Ferguson tree, Erica. He's one musician really worthy of our attention, plus this will give the younger generations an introduction to his contributions to jazz, and music in general.

Speaking of starting new trees, yesterday I created a profile for artist/sculptor Alexander Archipenko, using your instructions, which were quite easy to follow. I didn't have to call for help, so that made me feel pretty good! Thanks, again!

Renée, as you probably guessed, it's because of Gitiim, I am a music groupie.

I enjoyed reading your Project Page on Geni's Musician Plaza, then clicking on the links to your performances, which are really fine. Thanks so much for joining our Plaza!

For those who had to get up way too early in the morning but forgot to set the alarm, and left in a hurry without the necessary caffeine boost, here's a shot of adrenaline for you:

10/2/2015 at 2:21 PM

Love love love the foo!!! Great tune! 😍
Private User Why thank you, very much! As with most artists, I always appreciate it, when someone appreciates, what I do. 💖

10/2/2015 at 2:27 PM

Would you all, be so kind, to hit the link then, hit the ❤️heart❤️, next to this song. I'm trying to get on a charity cd sampler, to raise funds for disasters i.e. Katrina, Sandy, Haiti etc. founded by Linken Park. Need massive votes, to win anything and the 4 leading songs, seem to know hundreds of people, willing to vote. 😋😉👍🏼
