Our Jazz Combo had the pleasure of learning from, listening to and playing two songs with Othello Molineaux including Tangerine and Watermelon Man. Unforgettable!
Evening performance featured Othello Molineaux with the Palm Beach State College Tuesday Nite Big Band under the direction of David Gibble. An amazing night of jazz with a island twist!

On Friday, November 13, 2015 while enjoying a jazz set with BOSSA JAZZ at The Bamboo Room in Lake Worth, Florida I had the pleasure of sitting with and reconnecting with Legendary Jazz Songstress, Songwriter and Founder of Women In Jazz South Florida JOAN CARTWRIGHT.
I joined this amazing organization on November 13 as member # 298, and their 165th musician. I look forward to this new chapter in my life.
I will be interviewed by Joan Cartwright on her show Music Woman Thursday, December 10 at 4pm. Listen online to Music Woman Blogtalkradio.

Fluteity is a state of mind and music that combines the flow and flexibility that is fluidity with the finesse and freedom of the jazz flute. It represents my musical persona and stage name.

It’s official. I am a fledgling jazz musician. I enjoyed every note, riff, and solo. My stage fright and fears dissolved the moment we began. I was tasked with introducing each song and the band members. I also initiated intros and cued outros. We played Summertime, Tangerine and Bag’s Groove. I recorded the performance as a reminder of where I started and the humility of the moment.
