"has spring already come?
I feel wealthy this New Year
with five sho of old rice"

Matsuo Basho (ca. 1644-94)

 
Dear Friends:

I thought this haiku from my favorite poet Basho was appropriate considering the tempature outside...  Wow, one more year has come and gone.  It went fast but it's been a great year for Smalls, Mezzrow and SmallsLIVE.  The music has been really strong.  Great shows from some legends and great shows from our core cats and some great shows from some young up and comers who have been representing.  The community feels strong and appreciative.  We had an amazing Christmas Eve at Smalls - usually it's pretty dead but this year was packed throughout the evening and ended with one of the most vibrant jam sessions I've seen in a while.  We may have global warming, threats of war and domestic issues but the jazz scene is vibrant and healthy.  I sense that the people really need this music more than ever.  It seems like everyday that I'm approached by some visitor from another country - Germany, Japan, Australia, etc, telling me how much they appreciate the live stream and the newsletters and feeling like they belong to the family.  It is a family - a family of like minded individual people who love and need jazz music for their daily fiber.

On Christmas we completed the final piece of a three year project which was to, first build Mezzrow, then to build our new website with the complete audio/video archive and the artist revenue share royalty system and then, finally, the Mezzrow live stream.  Now all from our website hub, www.smallslive.com, you can watch live streamed shows from either Smalls or Mezzrow.  Just like in real life where you can walk back and forth between the two corners of West 10th street at 7th ave, now you can simply click back and forth from where ever you are and watch the shows.  If you haven't yet, check the site.  It's free to register for the live streams and we hope that you become a subscribing member for access to our archives.  Revenue from subscriptions are directly paid to the artists and subsidize the clubs.

We also have tickets available for our New Year's Eve show at Mezzrow which features the great Johnny O' Neal trio and includes snacks and champagne and a pass to Smalls - can't beat it for a great NYE evening.  Click HERE for info.

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and peaceful 2016.  We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the clubs.

Regards,
Spike
