He says it has a secret message if you listen carefully.

That was a cool way to announce it. Guess he can afford a shave and a haircut now.

Quote:Casey Abrams has signed with Concord Music Group. The “American Idol” season 10 finalist will release his debut album this summer.

...The press release announcing Abrams’ deal highlights his love of such artists as Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and Oscar Peterson, so we have a feeling that the debut may focus more on Abrams’ jazzy, traditional side.http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/the-beat-goes-on/posts/american-idols-casey-abrams-signs-a-record-deal

The label offers different types of music including "jazz" and "contemporary jazz":

Yeah...I was trying to edit my thread to ask you to please delete it because John had apparently beat me, as I was trying to watch the beginning of the MNC and post at the same time. Sorry about that.

Sorry John, your post is much more complete. I just saw the tweet and slapped up the link.

No problem. I appreciate you thinking of HaleyFans and posting the news here. I closed the thread and left a note because I didn't want to delete it without you knowing why.

There's a comment on the YouTube video made by this woman:

She said:

I was trying to figure out what Haley and Casey would be doing in Orlando. One possibility that seemed promising was that it might be related to the death of Sam Rivers:

NYT, December 27, 2011
Quote:Sam Rivers, an inexhaustibly creative saxophonist, flutist, bandleader and composer who cut his own decisive path through the jazz world, spearheading the 1970s loft scene in New York and later establishing a rugged outpost in Florida, died on Monday in Orlando, Fla. He was 88.

Quote:Monique Rivers, Sam Rivers’ daughter, said she takes solace in knowing that her father continued to write music and play well, even though he was weakened from a prolonged bout with pneumonia.

“He wrote every day of his life, every single day -- until two days ago,” Monique Rivers said.

...While Rivers’ own flute and saxophone now lay quiet, his music endures. His legacy will be celebrated in an extravaganza early next year, his daughter said.

But it looks like the jam to celebrate his life was held on January 4th.

A recent track by Sam Rivers featuring the Rivbea Orchestra he formed in Orlando:

Hmm. Was there an AI event at DisneyWorld?


RE: I'm Casey and I just got signed. - Miguel - 01-12-2012 01:20 AM

I've looked and cannot find any link. Apart from BICO, the only connection I think Haley and Casey share professionally post-Idol is 19 Management.

I've speculated to myself that Haley might travel with him to Florida and then head up to NYC to promote the release of her single. But why would he be in Orlando? I also speculated to myself that Sam Rivers "authored about 400 compositions, many of which have not yet been released" and had "about 40 or 50 CDs in the vault" and somehow Haley and Casey were being given first crack at them. Purely idle speculation on my part.

My one other bit of speculation is that Haley was recording a duet with him for his new album.

It will be nice (for us) when they're better known outside the Idol bubble and more people excitedly tweet about their whereabouts. They currently fly under the radar fairly easily.
