Amy Cook and Miami Valley Jazz

June 26, 2007

I am just back from making a movie with Amy Cook. It was a wonderful experience, and great to make music with her again. Bobby and John were wonderful to me when I arrived from out of town, and I really appreciate them for thier musicianship and freindship.

I then went and was an Artist in Residence at the Miami Valley Jazz Camp in Centerville OH. I had 15 wonderful students, and we did some great playing and learning together. The staff there is amazing, and I enjoyed making music with them all week.

I am headed to NYC to rock with D’Haene as we get ready for our second record. Looking forward to rocking NYC and developing the new material that will be the new CD.

What People Are Saying About Sammy...

"With Sammy, it's about 2 things: the MUSIC and the STUDENT. Period. He gives the impression that every day he finds himself lucky enough to wake up in the morning and spread the gospel about making great drumming happen. It doesn't matter whether the student is a hotshot Conservatory cat or a middle schooler just starting out, Sammy approaches the deal with the same passion, the same enthusiasm, the same spirit of giving that enables students of all levels to gain maximally from being in his presence. It's not about Sammy, it's about the music. Not Sammy's music, THE music. You'll not find a finer example of sharing and caring and giving people a leg up in the whole world. Simply put, Sammy K is a delight to be around, and the compassion he shares with students gives everyone he touches the best shot at being all they can be." Hal Melia - Northern Kentucky University
