Evelyn, thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you found something of help in my blog. That makes the effort all worth it. Thanks for taking the time to write to me!

I just want to thank you - Today I red the Naples Daily News and the line said: Are you Happy? Your comments about being serene made me realize that I was trying to achieve was just happiness, but really serenity is what I wanted all along. I have a new outlook now. Thank you so much!

Hi Mike, nice to hear from you again. I do recall sitting in with you at that neat little bistro in Bonita. That was fun and I enjoyed playing with you all.

I have, however, relocated to another part of Florida. I have basically "retired" again from singing to pursue writing. I've just published a book and still write a weekly column for the Naples Daily News online edition called Life in the Slow Lane.

I rarely perform anymore until or unless it's an especially neat gig or occasional charity event.

My tunes still sell well on line, especially in Europe.

Do keep in touch. Sending you contact info in separate email. I do make it to Naples fairly regularly to see friends.

Safe travels to you and yours. And thanks for thinking of me!

An absolutely beautiful voice,soft and mellow, lovely to listen to.I grew up with Big Band music and our children did also.

Growing up with "Big Band" music, my father Bill being personal friends with the late and great Swing&Sway Sammy Kaye, I too love the sounds and beats of sweet band music. I miss the dancing in the great ballrooms here in the midwest. The places filled with couples having a "ball" dancing and listening to bands and groups playing songs that bring fond memories back into my mind! Thank you for keeping the great "big band" music agoing! Your website is great! I really enjoyed it!

Hi Gene, thanks for writing. Just received your request for all my CD titles.
You have them all. I’ve done only two, and have basically gone into retirement, yet again, to pursue another passion of mine: writing. I’m presently writing for a newspaper blog in Florida, and don’t anticipate doing any more CDs in the near future. Who knows what might happen down the line, however. (smile)

Thank you for your interest. I do hope you enjoy the ones I have produced thus far.

Best regards,

gene crabtree

will you please send me a complete list of all of your cds prior to "somewhere in time" and "where can i go without you" even if they might be out of print thank you

Mike Mendelsohn pianist,bass and my close friend from Leeds England..Just sent me your link.You are a lovely singer/talent.I wish I were there to play for/with you..but I now live in Tel Aviv,where I play twice a week at Dan Hotel on the beach.Solo guitar/vocals or with Keyboard added(which of course is more fun and much easier..but solo is good practice after having a trio/q uintet and taking a back seat with female vocals and having a trio to back me.If I get back to Naples(was there last january) I will get Mike to introduce us.
Apart from singing standards I play uke(the usual stuff but also solo) and love self contained guitar and vocal guitar duets.If you dont know them listen to Martin Taylor.Ted Greene,Lenny Breau,Tuck and Patti.(Youtube or better still they have wbsites.)
Do you play piano,because Mike took me to a nice restaurant with a great pianist vocalist,could it have been you?
Hope to meet you before too long.
Best wishes Geoff Menzer

Hi Kathryn, I stumbled on your terrific voice in Itunes when I was searching for the song You Must Believe in Spring. Love your version. I'm a singer as well over in the Lauderdale area. I'd love to hear you if you're ever over in this area .

Hi-I'm a BOI from Galveston. My dear step-father was Oscar Garcia. Do you remember him playing bass with Johnny Garcia and Chano Rodriguez? (Chano was my godfather.) Oscar passed away in 1994 and I still miss him so much. I would love to hear anything you remember about my dad. I just gave his last bass to my 13 year old nephew who is now playing the bass-it brings back so many memories of all of the evenings we spent at the Flagship with Oscar, Johnny and Chano. Thank you for your time.

I just wanted to thank you for all that you did for my father. You are a truly amazing woman with the voice of a Goddess. He spoke nothing but great and wonderful things about you. Many jokes of how only he can call you ... I won't dare say,LOL! I just wanted to come by and thank you for all you've done for my dad as he has gone home. Thank you so much Ms. Taubert your love will forever live on as I now carry on his legacy!

After a lifetime in music and the music business, I've learned that the nicest thing one musician can say about another is "class act!"

So, without hesitation, Kathryn IS a CLASS ACT!
