Junior Mance "75 Years of Performing and Recording"
Junior Mance "75 Years of Performing and Recording"

Junior recorded the music for  his last CD, in February 2015.  Even though this will probably be his last CD, Junior is still performing locally in NYC.  Junior has performed with many jazz legends over his musical life and in 2013, he celebrated his 75 year as a jazz artist.  Now turning 87 on October 10th,  Junior  (with your help) will be releasing a special CD, "For My Fans, It's All about You" featuring two solos  and four tunes with his trio, Hide' Tanaka (bass), and Michi Fuji (violin)     

Risks and challenges

The music for Junior's CD, "For My Fans, It's All About You" was recorded in February 2015 at Systems Two in Brooklyn, NY. The project is in the final stages which includes : raising the needed funds; finalizing the music selection; having the mixing and mastering done; and finally the production of the CD. The cover of CD has been completed and will include some of the pictures shown. "Emily" will be one of the solos performed by Junior along with his jazzy arrangement of "Home on the Range". Of course, there will be a blues selection.
