AUGUST 6th  "HUMAN CONNECTION MUSIC" organization -

co-founded by vocalists

Mon David and Cathy Segal-Garcia - honored "Heroes of Jazz"  -

 Mr. NOLAN SHAHEED.  www.humanconnectionmusic.com

Please consider making a tax-deductible

extra contribution to this organization!

As a constant  jazz community builder, at this point in my life, I seriously want to see if I can build support for our uniquely rich singular American creation:  JAZZ

We've created these events..."Hero's of Jazz"...to inspire and heal people, by introducing them to these truly AMAZING artists.  Artists who have literally committed their whole lifetimes to studying, practicing, teaching, creating and performing this art form. 

Can you imagine what kind of a life that is?

Consider how important it is to acknowledge these people in our society... The gifts of jazz to the world run extremely deep, no matter how subtle they may appear.  Art makes people and the environment better.  It just does.

Yours sincerely,   Cathy Segal-Garcia
