Hello Mr. Cammack:
Each year, the Patchogue-Medford School District Music Department hosts a district-wide jazz event during the month of February. The groups that perform on "Jazz Night" are the Elementary Jazz Band (grades 5&6), 3 separate middle school jazz bands (grades 7/8th), and the high school jazz band. It is a wonderful evening of jazz music where each group performs separately culminating with a mass piece when all groups perform on stage for a grand finale. It is larger than life. I am fortunate to be the district-wide music director for a district that embraces the arts. The Patchogue-Medford community is a multi-cultural, blue collar, hardworking community that has always supported the music programs.

It is my understanding that you have done master classes and have been a guest clinician for public schools. . I was wondering would consider coming to the Patchogue-Medford School District in February of 2017 to be our guest clinician/artist for the 2017 District-wide Jazz Night. I have a jazz pianist on staff, Steve Mahr who would complete the rhythm section.

The commitment would include two rehearsal days Tuesday Feb.7 and Wednesday Feb. 8, 2017 working with the individual jazz bands, and then performing one or two charts with the high school jazz band and improvise with the mass finale Thursday night February 9, 2017. Attached is the schedule for this past year’s Jazz night.

I hope you are available and interested in being our guest clinicians for the 2017 Jazz Night.

12.02.15Keith Foley

Hello Mr. Cammack, i am curious as to what bass you are playing during the 1985 Montreal Jazz Festival. Thank you for your time.

11.15.15joel goldstein

Jimmy, It was good to see this afternoon. I'm sure that everyone that knows you from the USMA Band will be glad to know that you are doing so well.
Didn't get to tell you but I thought you ought to know that Harold Green just died recently and his son is hoping to have a memorial service here next Sunday. He would have been happy to see and say hi to you as I was.
At any rate, hope everything continues to go well for you and if you ever have the time, come see the rest of the Band alumni during June of each year.

Jim,

Danny Weller, bassist here. It was great talking with you last night at Knickerbocker. I love your set up and I love your playing.

Wanted to drop you a line, in case you were interested in staying connected:
danny@thirdstorymusic.com
619-929-8482

I would love to send you a copy of my latest album: Third Story, if you care to send me a mailing address.

Best of luck with finding an understudy for Lady Day. I would offer to audition, as I've had some off-Broadway experience with acting/performing on-stage, but I can understand if a young-looking White kid might not be the right look for that role!

Please add me to your mailing list if you have one, and I look forward to hearing you play again soon.

Best,
Danny Weller

Bass ? Do you still play trumpet? Don't know if you remember me from CHHSE (High School) but its good to see you made a home for yourself in a career in music. Send me an e-mail if you get a chance it would be great to hear from you.

01.30.13Jon Green

Dear James,
I am now going back just over 20 years, but around 1991, my friend Andy Calder and I went to buy tickets to Mr. Jamal's concert at the Bird of Paradise in Ann Arbor, MI. We happened upon the band rehearsing, and we stuck around. Just fantastic. You had an Alembic then, as did my friend, and we came by later with a third bassist and compared Alembics. The show later that evening has been seared into my memory as one of the best shows I've ever seen. There's a whole other story as to the rest of that evening, but to this day I remember your graciousness to a buch of college kids, and your fantasic playing. I wish you all the bast, and look forward to seeing you next time in Detroit!

01.15.13Craig Privett

Hi James,
I have done some work with Naomi Margolin,
I was telling her I was looking someone to take some lessons with. She mentioned you with much praise, and from reading about you and listening to some tracks on your site, I dig where she is coming from. he wasn't sure if you taught, I figured i would give it a shot, I am an electric bass player, studied jazz performance at City College a couple semesters(couple years ago). I'm 51 years old and play many styles of music, jazz theory and language seem to cover all worlds. I appreciate your time man, either way it was great to get turned on to your playing.
Take Care,
Craig

10.13.12Ray Funk

Greetings from Alaska. Ray Funk, producer/host of Funk Roots at KUAC-FM in Fairbanks just below the arctic circle here.I am writing because I am interested in getting promotional copy of your cd for my radio show called Funk Roots on Kuac-FM. The show is an eclectic mix of world music, roots music, and jazz. It is on every Sunday night from 7 pm to 9pm in Alaska. I have been on the air at KUAC as a volunteer dj and producer for 32 years and Funk Roots has been on the air for over twenty years. KUAC-FM is the local NPR affiliate and is rebroadcast on other stations throughout Alaska. It is also broadcast on the internet. See www.kuac.org. My playlists are now posted to a consolidated npr site I continue to have fun doing my show as a volunteer when according to recent reports this music is getting less and less coverage on public radio. Classical, jazz, and world music on public radio declined by up to 30% over the last decade and roots music cannot be far behind. Meanwhile, I have recently become a member of the artist selection committee for the Fairbanks Concert Association.I look forward to hearing from you.Ray FunkFunk Roots, KUAC-FMP. O.

07.21.12Hans Swaep

Hi James,
Your tone on the Ahmad Jamal CD "Live at Montreal Jaaz fest" is so amazing. I cannot believe it is an upright bass.
But it is, isn't it? If so, how do you get that wonderful growly sound as if from a jazzbass bridge pu?
And when can we see yo perform in Europe again?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Hans

James, it's Michael here who sends you regards and love.
Was downright SHOCKED not to find you on Ahmad's new album. - Sincerely hope all is most well with you.
- Was a temporary separation? Or have you simply gone another way.
- Personally, terrible for me, no joke. My wife six months ago (with us having a 17 yr. old daughter and 15 yr. old son) asked me for a separation. Into the mix we had to leave our place at the same time. - They're all fine, I'm not. - Never been through so much suffering in my life.
- On that "down" note, I do hope you are most well. - I am so fond of you, as you know. - I send you warmest regards and blessings always. - Michael
