Mack began his personal association with jazz in his youth.
He played in his high-school jazz band in Kilgore, Texas in the northeastern part of the stateand continued when he attended Kilgore Junior College. He enlisted in the Navy, joined the band and eventually becoming a bandleader — making that his career for 26 years.
At first, Mack worked booking musical acts, but then he decided to plunge into the business directly. Mack knows his jazz. He books the bands, treats the musicians well and in turn is well respected by the musicians he hires.
In support of music education, Mack invites high-school bandleaders to bring their bands to the club. We have a wonderful education system here.
After all, the Hollywood, Florida-based Yarling — a vocalist and violinist as well as an educator — knows the value of exposure to history and elder mentors. She's been a beneficiary herself. Born and raised in Brooklyn, arriving in South Florida in the s, Yarling has ever since brought great joy and impeccable artistry to audiences from the Florida Keys to the Palm Beaches and beyond.
Discovering her to be a uniquely gifted performer with infectious passion and charisma, who could caress a timeless standard or belt a raucous blues, he was so impressed he lent his name and talents, on a couple of a duets to her live recording, Joe Williams Presents Nicole Yarling at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild.
An exceptionally enthusiastic fan as well as performer, she can and will expound about the legacies of heroes from Stuff Smith to Leroy Jenkins, or extol the gifts of up-and-comers such as Gregory Porter, Christian Howe and the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Many a South Florida jazz and blues fan lights up at the mention of Yarling, whose presence on a bandstand is always welcome.
Her musicianship, her voice and her presence reflect the great joy and beauty she finds within the music to which she's devoted so much of her life. And we eagerly expect more of all this from Jazz Hero Nicole Yarling in the future.The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the nation's longest running and most prestigious recognition and scholarship program for creative teens, presented by the nonprofit Alliance for Young.
