Smalls/Mezzrow Newsletter - February 15th, 2016

Dear Friends:

It seems that below zero temperatures has little effect on jazz fans.  Both clubs were packed to the rafters this weekend including Sunday for Valentine's Day.  Cold night but hot jazz. Lovely to see.

I wanted to announce something really excited about that has long been a special project for me.  It is the creation of an educational component for SmallsLIVE.   Thanks to my good friend Peter Malinverni, who besides being a fantastic jazz artist is also the Director of the Jazz Department at the State University of New York in Purchase, NY, we are beginning a institutional SmallsLIVE membership program.  Starting this semester, we will be providing 3 month memberships to the SUNY students courtesy of the department.  This will give the students unlimited access to our audio/video archive as well as our live stream to use as much as they like.  We feel that our archive of more than 10,000 recordings representing more than 1000 musicians is an educational boon for any student of the music.  Our goal is to try to reach out to any music institution and work out an affordable way that they can bring this resource to their students.  By having such a prestigious conservatory as SUNY's come on board as our flagship school, we feel, will give us the credibility to really reach any number of schools and conservatories world-wide.  Anyone that is interested in this should please contact me directly at spikewilner@gmail.com and we can work out the details.  Our goal is to disseminate this music to as many people as possible - by sharing and making it available we are guaranteeing the future of this music.

There's quite a bit of great music this week at the clubs.  I'm particularly excited to present the legendary Buster Williams at Mezzrow with pianist Rene Rosnes.  That's going to be a sold-out show so grab your tickets early.  As always, thanks for the support and I hope to see you at the clubs.

Regards,

Spike
