The long and sometimes tumultuous crossing from 2008 to 2009 is finally over.
We are here...awaiting promise, peace, and healing for ourselves individually, nationally, and globally.
How was anyone to know a main ingredient to that would come in a CD packed with soulful and gorgeous selections by an intuitive Guitarist Greg Poree and his exquisite ensemble?

When I hear the song 'Unforgettable' a past pours over me, and I am taken back and forward, and back and around, with the replays of the video, to the replays of my mind; and the past returns to make me smile with the delight of memory, and the joy of being in love and loved. The love may have receded like his hairline, but the memory of the everlasting love lingers, and brings the smile back to my face over the distance of the years. The potent combination of music, voice and image, will always have the power to harness the past to the present and the now, and lines such as 'Darling, it is... Read More

The year was 1968. The boys in the band were returning to Pine City after a few days break in New York City. Their summer long tour was beginning to take its toll even on this six pack of hard rocking teens. They were sad yet a bit relieved that after this Friday & Saturday night at the Pine City Hullabaloo Club, they could head south again.
The band, LUKE'S CABBAGE STORE was from Warner Robins, Georgia a far cry from the bustle of New York and the other big cities they had visited this summer. Pine City on the other hand, was small town America, quaint and hospitable.... Read More
It was a brisk, fall evening Sunday - October 19, 2008 when pupils, aficionadas, aficionados, and all others came out to the inimitable World Stage, located in the Leimert Park district of Los Angeles. We wanted to give thanks and recognition to Drummer - Billy Higgins, the founder of one of the greatest venues for Jazz, Poetry, Prose, Dance and other art forms.
The Birthday Celebration and observance was a golden opportunity to give a tribute to a life that was an example to all of those who came in touch with him, Billy Higgins.

(I don't usually do this, but seeing as it's my 250th article for Broo, maybe I feel a little entitled? I'm plugging my annual Yuletide Yuckfest, a show I produce every year for Toys for Tots.
