The Way of a Woman by Jan Daley Enters Jazz Billboard Charts with Incredible Placements!

Jan Daley’s “The Way of a Woman” smooth jazz album just debuted at #6 on the Billboard Jazz Chart and #5 on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart. Standing between Jan and the #1 chart positions are less than 5 other artists’ releases, most notably Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Thelonious Monk and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. This is quite an accomplishment and a well deserved one at that for this independent artist whose career has spanned over five decades. She started off as the “singing canary” in her early twenties on Bob Hope’s USO Tour and has performed with countless huge names in both the acting and singing world. Additionally she also wore the crown as Miss California (yes, it was “Miss” Back then!) while attending college.

 

Her newest album stands out as yet another phenomenal release in a seemingly endless stream of phenomenal world-class smooth jazz. With six original tunes and five brilliantly adapted covers, “The Way of a Woman” is well worth a listen for even those who don’t normally listen to smooth jazz. If you haven’t done so yet, check out “The Way of a Woman” on iTunes.

 

If that’s not enough Jan for you, you can download the title song from her EP “When Sunny Gets Blue” FOR FREE from Noisetrade. To learn more about Daley and to keep up with her latest updates, check out her Facebook and her official website here: www.jandaley.com/.

Louis Armstrongs Well Deserved Praise of Jan Daleys Smooth Jazz Music

In the words of the great Louis Armstrong: She’s got a, “great big beautiful voice.”  And she really does.  What makes Jan Daley’s music so phenomenal, however, is her versatility.  She can put on a performance full of bravado and the next second move onto a tender smooth jazz ballad that would make the most stoic listener’s emotions swell. In a recent article by AXS Magazine, Daley is described as having, “mastery of dynamic vocal range,” and for, “fully embracing each note as the listener embarks on a heart touching journey with her.”

 

Daley’s new smooth jazz album features eleven songs- six of which were written by Daley herself.  The others are all incredible songs from the days of the Great American Songbook (a collection of the most popular songs and jazz standards from the early 20th century).  Jan studied for years under the mentorship of Jack Segal, the original writer of “When Sunny Gets Blue.”  Her extensive career and wealth of experience undoubtedly helped shape the exceptional smooth jazz artist Jan is today.

 

For a taste, you can download the title song from her EP “When Sunny Gets Blue” FOR FREE from Noisetrade. To learn more about Daley and to keep up with her latest updates, check out her Facebook and her official website here: www.jandaley.com/.

OVER $20,000 IN CD’S AND DVD’S DONATED BY ROCK ‘N RETAIL FOR CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL L.A., 2010 HOLIDAY CD/DVD DRIVE.

Press Contact:

Gale Rosenberg
RocknRetail2001@cs.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

12th ANNUAL ROCK ‘n RETAIL MUSIC MARKETING –
CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL L.A. HOLIDAY DRIVE

REAPS DONATIONS OF OVER $20,000 IN CD’S/DVD’S/BOOKS

 

Los Angeles, CAThe Annual 2010 Rock ‘n Retail/Web ‘n Retail Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Holiday CD/DVD Drive brought in approximately $20,000 worth of CD’s and DVD’s which was a 25% increase over the 2009 drive. Even in tough times, 15 Record Labels/Distributors, Management Companies, DVD Companies, Artists and Promotion Firms managed to pull together the highest donation amount recognized over the previous 11years.

 

Per Gale Rosenberg, President of Rock ‘n Retail, LLC / Web ‘n Retail  “We are incredibly grateful to our many Sponsors including Softdrive Records, Rocket science, Carnival Recording Company, UMG Nashville, Victoria Trestrail, Sony Independent Music Network, MC Records, Razor and Tie, Family Values Cinema, CMH Records/Rockabye Baby, Fearless Records, Inception Music, Sony BMG Legacy, Marvelous Media and Universal Music” .

 

Merchandise donated included such artists/products as Stone Temple Pilots, Lee Ann Womack, Sugar Land, Kidz Bop Kids, Rockabye Baby Lullaby Renditions of U2, Carrie Underwood, Dixie Chicks, Good Hands Bad Blood, to name just a few of the quality titles.

 

President of Rock ‘n Retail, LLC/Web ‘n Retail, Gale Rosenberg became involved in providing entertainment for the patients at the Hospital when her less then 20 month old niece, Paige, was diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma. Neuroblastomas comprise 15% of cancer deaths in children and generally manifest in children under the age of 2. She was rushed into surgery and her prognosis for survival was not good. The Doctors said that if she did survive, her future would be compromised. They

removed 16 Lymph Nodes and one Adrenal gland.

”Paige is truly a miracle; she is now 11 years old, she has been off all medications for many years and she leads a completely normal, wonderful life. While spending so many hours at the hospital I spoke with many young cancer patients, some that had not left the hospital in several years. Most all of them had personal CD players that had been donated, but they had only 1 or 2 CD’s to idle away the time. Now, some of the rooms have DVD players in them as well.”

 

Wendy Kellaris, Director of Volunteer Services for Children’s Hospital L.A. states “The positive impact of music, books and other entertainment of this type cannot be measured.  It is therapeutic, soothing and healing.  We give our many thanks to Rock ‘n Retail for their 12 years of support to Children’s Hospital.”

 

“Donations made during the Holiday season make up 80% of our yearly donations.  We use these donations all year round. The patients get a gift every week while in the hospital as well as an additional gift for birthdays, recovery from operations, traumatic events, etc.   We distribute 70,000 gifts yearly and must rely on the generosity of the Community to help us accomplish this very important task.  Patients are fortunate to have such excellent Doctors and Nurses taking care of them, but sometimes the most important thing for them is the knowledge that people outside our walls care about them as well”  states Kellaris.

 

This year’s holiday drive was turning out to be a very difficult one as donations were down almost 70% from the year before. Amazingly, with a week left in the holiday drive, Wendy Kellaris reached out to many of her local news stations. With their help, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles was able to meet their donation goal and it turned out to be a great year!
