Happy Anniversaries Haley

Today marks the 6 month anniversary of the release of Haley's single Free, and the 1 year anniversary of her brilliant God Bless The Child jazz masterpiece with Grammy award winning jazz musician Irvin Mayfield Jr. See both videos below, and if you agree with me that Haley and Irvin deserve a Grammy nomination for "Best Improvised Jazz Solo" please tweet this column out attention @TheGRAMMYs.

Haley and Irvin engage in an epic call-response that is truly Grammy worthy

Coming up on October 8th, Haley and Irvin will reunite in a star studded affair at Carnegie Hall to celebrate the 10 years of Irvin's NOLA Orchestra.  Haley's old American Idol pal Casey Abrams will also be performing as one of Irvin's special guests. Really hoping for some great footage of that one to post here for you guys. Should be an epic show.

Additionally, Haley has a "StageIt" living-room internet concert coming up next month (October 16th), and she replied to me via twitter that she'll likely be doing a jazz number for us there, too.

Well, alright!!! 

Finally, please note the new poll I've added to Kenny Poo blog on the top right column. It's a survey to see which of Haley's music styles you enjoy the most. I think you all know what mine is, especially if you read my Open Letter To Haley last month.

  1. Totally agree about the Grammy worthy performance for GBTC. Great from start to finish, and one of the most impressive call-responses I've seen and I love jazz. G.
