Jazz Vespers At St. Timothy's Episcopal Is Oct. 7

Monday, September 24, 2012

Jazz Vespers at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, 630 Mississippi Ave., Signal Mountain, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 5 p.m.  All are welcome to attend this service.  There is no admission charge, but a freewill offering will be gratefully received.

Kathy Tugman and the David Walters Trio have programmed an enticing array of songs, which will cast the secular rhythms and messages of jazz in the light of the Vesper candle.

  Never risking a charge that “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” the band will offer up crisp versions of standards like Cole Porter’s “Easy to Love” and Irving Berlin’s “How Deep is the Ocean” as well as lesser known gems like “Here’s to Life” by Phyllis Molinary and Artie Butler and “Falling in Love With Love” by Rogers and Hart.  This now timeless music will be offered between apt scripture lessons and poetry readings.  The Trio will play intriguing new arrangements of tunes like Oscar Peterson’s “A Child Is Born,” and Kathy and the boys will throw new light on hymns like “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” and “Stand By Me,” and then freshen up the traditional tune, “Jesus on the Main Line.”  But above all, the jazz style will be intertwined throughout the entire program.

The City Failed To Watch The Chattanooga History Museum Dollars - And Response (3)

The tell tale signs of the History Museum's folly have been evident for years. When I was a former member of City Council I interviewed Dr. Daryl Black, Ph.D. to determine if I should argue for or against the annual funding of his organization. His interview, the multi-year history of administrative non-performance (despite consistent repetitive funding), and a review of the organizational ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Greenholtz: A No-Brainer

I am going to make this as simple as I possibly can. There are three fine lawyers now running for Criminal Court Judge and anywhere you go there will be people who like and admire Tom Greenholtz, Boyd Patterson and Mike Little. But when we select a judge, it should never be based on popularity. That’s why Gov. Haslam picked Greenholtz over both Little and Patterson this summer to ... (click for more)
