Album Notes
What in the world is the Austin Jazz Workshop?

We are a nonprofit group of professional musicians dedicated to jazz performance and education for young people in central Texas public schools. Since 1994, the group has performed over 700 assemblies and 2,000 classroom workshops, receiving exuberant praise from teachers, students, and administrators across five school districts. Our goal is to introduce children to jazz in a fun and informative manner, and to encourage them to pick up instruments and become active participants in music-making.

The music is not kid stuff, though! We work with the top musicians in central Texas--Grammy-winning artists who have toured and recorded with industry names like Ray Charles, Doug Sahm, Ella Fitzgerald, and others. By night, these musicians are much in demand as performers and recording artists. By day, they find time to bring this innovative project into the public schools where it is has been warmly received for almost a dozen years.

In August 2003, the Austin Jazz Workshop released Anything Goes, featuring the music of Cole Porter impeccably sung by the wonderful Mady Kaye. Recorded mostly live at an energetic performance in downtown Austin, Texas, it is an excellent showcase both for Ms. Kaye and free-spirited blowing by the five-piece ensemble backing her up, including Pat Murray on trumpet, Michael Melinger on tenor and soprano saxophone, Marty Allen on piano, Luis Guerra on bass, and Ernie Durawa on drums. Other special guests include James Polk, Glenn Rexach, Julie Slim, and Dianne Donovan.

We hope you enjoy Anything Goes! Please be sure to check out other AJW recordings available here at CD Baby:

Big Boss Tenor (October 2005): Two saxophones go horn to horn on nine original tracks. Also featuring some blistering guitar work by Glenn Rexach. Coming soon!

Basin Street Stomp (February 2002): New Orleans front-line of sax/clarinet, trumpet, trombone, and tuba, with piano and drums. Featuring music of Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Scott Joplin, and other great jazz pioneers.

Money raised from the sale of AJW CD's is dedicated to furthering our school outreach program.

"Cole Porter's tunes and lyrics are classics, standards familiar to anyone who pays any attention to music, yet this recording brings new life to the music, swings it and makes it shine. Cole Porter wrote "Anything Goes," "Just One of Those Things," "All of You," "Easy to Love," "What is This Thing Called Love" and other well-known ballads. But the treatment the songs get on this album is not just your basic boring ballad. There is scat, there are clever turns to Porter's witty lyrics, there are flights of imagination from the trumpeter, the saxophonist, the pianist, the bassist and the drummer, there are key changes and rhythmic bursts; in short, there is jazz in all its glory."
