A personal note:

I'm sad to say one of my longtime, good personal friends and one of the whole music community Teo Leyasmeyer, passed away suddenly last week on May 16th. Teo was a very talented pianist, businessman and one of the truly 'good guys' in the music business. Here's a link to his recent obituary from the Boston Herald. http://theedge.bostonherald.com/musicNews/view.bg?articleid=139608
He will be sorely missed. He leaves behind many friends but especially his beautiful wife and two wonderful daughters, ages 14 and 8.

I will be donating 100% of ALL future sales monies of RLWK's 'Jazzalicious Grooves' to his family from now on.
It'll be much needed & appreciated by them. [The $18.00 price symbolizes 'chai' or 'life']. So please order copies for you & your friends in honor of his life and a person who helped and honored so many. Thank you.

HERE IS MORE INFO ON OUR GOOD FRIEND TEO:

Adapted from an article by Ted Drozdowski in the Boston Phoenix:

Teo Leyasmeyer has been a highly regarded figure in the nation's blues community and is credited with making the Cambridge House of Blues one of the premier touring stops for top blues artists. Other clubs in the chain, while featuring blues, have tended to favor rock and other pop-music formats.

For 10 years, Leyasmeyer was responsible for bringing the House of Blues a number of historic performers, including Otis Rush, Dr. John, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Ike Turner, and Solomon Burke, who would typically not play a
small (225-capacity) club. He also introduced the raw Mississippi-blues sound of the Fat Possum label to the Boston market, booking the first area performances of both Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside. After all,
Leyasmeyer was a touring pianist with such well-known bluesmen as Buddy Guy and Freddie King before he entered the talent-buying business.

In 1997, the Blues Foundation, a nonprofit organization made up primarily of professionals from all aspects of the genre, acknowledged Leyasmeyer's accomplishments with one of its Keeping the Blues Alive awards: Promoter of
the Year. In 2000, the Blues Foundation drafted Leyasmeyer for its advisory board, where he sits alongside such blues-world dignitaries as the record producer Jerry Wexler and the performer Bonnie Raitt.

Web Material: Promoter & musician Teo Leyasmeyer

As band leader for Freddie King and Johnny Copeland, Teo Leyasmeyer knew what a musician looks for as a promoter. As a projects coordinator of tributes to Howlin' Wolf and Willie Dixon, Teo also knew what a producer needs in a promoter. So it is no surprise that Teo won the 1997 KBA as
Promoter of the Year. After twenty-two years in the music biz, he was permanently based out of The House of Blues in Cambridge, Massachusetts as music coordinator. During vacation time he found time to perform, working with such notables as Debbie Davies and G. Love & Special Sauce. If it all gets to be too much, Teo Leyasmeyer also has a background in music therapy.
