November 10th, 2014

Dear Friends:

Both clubs were humming this weekend - both Smalls and baby-brother Mezzrow were full.  Mezz is starting to feel like a club to me now, electric.  I get worried when the vibe feels flacid - a quiet room.  I get excited when I see rows of folks completely involved with what the artist is creating - joyful and participating.  In the lounge happy conversation but with respect for the room - no craziness.  Just a good warm vibe.  The Cats come out to listen and hang together.  I saw some pianists and bassists come out to hear Kikoski and Ed Howard.  One young bass player said to me; "it's better for me to sit hear and listen to these guys than to go home and practice." - that made me feel great because that's when the club is functioning at it's highest - as a way to transmit the music from generation to generation directly, by ear as it's being played.

Also - I wanted to share this cool thing if you haven't already seen it.  It's our fancy new 3D Google Tour of Mezzrow.  Go order a drink from our 3D virtual bar...

My best to all of you and I wish you a good week!

Regards,
Spike
