ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Etowah Jazz Society (EJS) is a big band formed in April of 2002 by a group of dedicated local area musicians who love to perform a wide variety of music, ranging from Big Band-era classics and jazz standards to Broadway and pop hits. This CD is our first effort to capture what we feel is pretty close to our best work.
We came together on Saturday August 16th recorded all day. We recorded eighteen songs that day and sixteen of them were good enough we thought to make the CD. We had a lot of great help with recording from Ryan Goodwin and all the other local folks who lent us equipment and space.
We are a charitable not-for-profit 501c3 organisation with the purpose of bringing the big band sound and jazz as a musical style to North Georgia. In addition, we supply scholarships and educational opportunities to students of the area. The Title “HEADWATERS” came to us when we wanted to express our dedication to bringing the sound of big band jazz to the next generation. Our band is the the “headwaters” from which this information will flow downstream to the next group of jazz fans. The EJS is comprised of some 17 players from all walks of life who live in the local and surrounding communities. Among the many musicians that perform for EJS, you will find a Retired Surgeon, Accountant, HP Consultant, Physician, Cartersville High School Band Director, Retired Acountant, Marketing Executive, Middle School Teacher, Physical Therapist, High School Drama Teacher, Tech Manager, Retired School Administrator. We love what we do and we have great fun doing it. We hope to keep Big Band Jazz around for generations to come. We continue to play live thruought the local area and hope that people will enjoy our efforts. We try to make Big Band Jazz FUN and keep the Great American Songbook alive. Hope you enjoy our efforts!
