Smalls/Mezzrow Newsletter - March 13th, 2017
Dear Friends:

We had a really successful first "SmallsLIVE Workshop" with tenor saxophonist Joel Frahm.  It was attended by about 20 students, many saxophonists but also vocalists and other instrumentalists.  It went just as we had imagined - Joel interacted beautifully with the participants.  He spent some time on "technical talk" - things directly for saxophone players.  Then he moved into his own concepts about improvisation and insights into jazz music and being a professional player.  The discussion was lively and in-depth and just the kind of good vibe energy we were looking for to begin our educational series.  Please take the time to check out some of the other scheduled workshops.  This coming Sunday is drummer Ari Hoenig.  The links are below.  All the events are being held at Mezzrow and you can buy a seat in advance for $20.  We offer a student discount of $10 for musicians with school ID's.  Come share an afternoon with one of these artists and benefit from their experience and thinking.

As always, we have a whole slew of fantastic musicians performing this week at Smalls and Mezzrow.  I do hope the weather doesn't keep you indoors - but if it does, remember that we live stream all of our shows right to our website - www.smallslive.com.  Watching the stream is free.  Please consider becoming a member.

Regards,

Spike
