Jody Watley – Waiting In Vain One Year Anniversary

This music gem the contemporary jazz of “Waiting In Vain” was birthed on February 15, 2018. An eventual Top 10 Smooth Jazz Network entry, and Top 25 Billboard Smooth Jazz.

The format is one that in America still embraces soul music though primarily instrumental.

For me the ability and desire to continue to create different musical moments is very rewarding.

Of upcoming concerts the Blue Note Napa “An Evening Of Love, Jazz and Soul” with further highlight that artistic freedom.

Anyone stuck on my 80’s output is definitely missing out on the quality and diverse range that continues since that time.

Doing music I love and continuing to defy odds and boundaries imposed by others often this very business is what’s important to me and most of all to enjoy it all as much as possible in the process .. everything else is always just a bonus.

To you I say – keep exploring and growing .. that’s the beauty and blessing of life.
