Hello Friends:

I hope all is well with all of you.  New York City has settled, finally, into it's summer groove.  The evenings are now fair and the Village is alive with droves of humans of all types.  Mezzrow and Smalls continue to enforce our strict  "no-idiot" policy and true to form the audiences at the clubs have been the highest caliber folks from all over the world - all intelligent and courteous and really in tune with the music.  Artists love playing at our club because the quality of the performing experience is so high and that only comes when you have a great audience.  Maybe jazz people tend to have a higher intelligence quotient in general.  Anyway, no wide-screen T.V.'s here and people screaming or staring mindlessly into their phones.  This is finger popping, smiling and grasping-every-nuance kind of folks.  The kind of people I like to spend my time with...

I wanted to share this article from The New York Times that just came out the other day.  It's about Mezz Jr. coming to Mezzrow.  It's well written and colorful.  Enjoy ---> CLICK FOR ARTICLE.

We have a great week coming up of some wonderful music.  Remember that a cover paid at Mezzrow will also get you a pass to Smalls so you can do both clubs in the same night.

Peace to all.

Regards,

Spike
 
NOW: A cover paid at Mezzrow also gets you admission to Smalls.
