Hello Dear Friends,

Greetings from Paris, France!  Last night was the first concert of my tour and it went really well.  We played at le Duc des Lombard, a very classy club in the Chatelet neighborhood of the city.  Even though it was a Sunday night it was very well attended.  It was nice to meet folks who came out and knew about Smalls - most had never been there in person but knew about us via our webstream.  Many told me that they felt that they had been at the club by simply following our shows night after night on their computers.  This made me feel great and that the mission of SmallsLIVE - to disseminate our music world-wide was succeeding.  It's been nice to travel and to perform elsewhere.  Tonight is our second night at "the Duc" and then we move on to Italy for about a week.  I'll try to keep updating as we travel about.   Back on the homefront, I've been having good reports of great shows at Smalls.  Here's some of the highlights I want to point out for this week:

Monday - please check out Eden Ladin and his group with Harish Raghavan and Jason Brown.  Eden is a BAD young cat from Israel now living in the U.S.  People are starting to notice him and for good reason.  Following him is another of the truly great pianists Jean Michel-Pilc (from the great country I am currently in) and Francois Moutin with Ari Hoenig in trio.  A good night for piano players!

Tuesday -  We have Lucas Pino and his nonet back at the club.  This is an exciting group of young musicians all contributing their arrangements and improvisational skills to create a really unique large-group sound.  We have them about once a month now at Smalls and are well worth checking out.

Wed & Thur -  we have the exceptional and soulful Dayna Stephens and his quintet coming in to play and record.  This will be our first SmallsLIVE project completely done in-house with our new system that cam from the funds raised in our Indiegogo campaign.  With Dayna is Charles Ventura, Aaron Parks, Doug Weiss and Justin Brown.  Be sure to also stick around for our "Round Midnight" concerts:  on Wednesday is guitarist Will Bernard who's coming in with Gary Versace, John Ellis and Rudy Royston.  On Thursday is our mild-mannered manager and amazing saxophonist Nick Hempton and his group.

Fri & Sat -  on Friday at 7:30 PM we are delighted to present vocalist Marianne Solivan and her quartet with Xavier Davis, Matther Parrish and drummer McClenty Hunter.  Satturday at 7:30 is Smalls veteran Fabio Morgera and his group "Brassect" with the great Steve Davis on trombone.  Our featured 10:30 PM show is led by guitarist Saul Rubin.  Saul has been a non-stop underground force on the jazz scene for years.  Most recently working with the great Sonny Rollins.  In his group is the misunderstood Ned Goold, Frank Lacy & Ameen Saleem.

Sunday - we're always delighted to have the great Bucky Pizzarelli and Ed Laub come in for a duet concert.  Following them is our resident genius Johnny O'Neal and at "round midnight" one of my favorite all-round jazz musicians Joe Magnarelli and his band.

Thanks to all for your continual support and I'll be in touch next week.

Much love,

Spike Wilner (on the road)
