Smalls/Mezzrow Newsletter - February 27th, 2017
Dear Friends:

We've had some amazing forward movement in our educational initiative that we've been developing for SmallsLIVE.  After a meeting with Joris Teepe, the director of the Jazz department at the Prins Claus Conservatory in Groningen, Netherlands, we got a commitment to expand and continue our class - "The Current Scene at Smalls Jazz Club".  This will now be a two semester class - the first semester exposing the students to the guest teachers that come out to Prins Claus during the year to teach and the second semester to introduce students to prominent musicians who perform frequently at Smalls Jazz Club.  By utilizing our audio/video archive as a learning tool, students will be able to research the musicians, hear live concerts from the club and then work to analyze solos and generally familiarize themselves with the work of these artists.  The goal of the class is to bring to the attention of the students the thriving jazz scene that exists at Smalls and to, hopefully, introduce them to artists that they would not necessarily know.

We are also launching a series of workshops which we call SmallsLIVE Workshop.  These will be live classes done at Mezzrow for a maximum of 30 students.  The invited artist will work with students and talk about their own concept and approach to this music.  We will be video recording the class and then editing them into a series of workshop videos that will be available on our site.  They will also be part of the curriculum for our accredited class and part of a package that will include a transcription and analysis as well as an interview and discography for each participating teacher.  The currently scheduled workshops are now available if you feel like you'd want to participate.  We are starting with Joel Frahm on March 12th, Ari Hoenig on March 19th, Jeremy Pelt on April 9th and Will Vinson on May 14th.  For tickets and information click on the links.  As we add more workshops we will announce.

As always, we have an amazing week of music ahead of us.  I do hope to see everyone at the club.  Thanks for the support.

Regards,

Spike
