Jazzway 6004 a 501(c) 3 creative non-profit: Blog

Our November newsletter and e-mail blast just went out to all who are signed up on our mailing list.  Here is the text:
Greetings all!
My sincere thanks this season to all of you who have supported Jazzway over the years. We've enjoyed bringing you the best in jazz and we hope to continue in the coming year.
About last month….. we regret having had to postpone the John Lamkin's "Favorites" Quintet Fundraiser for Tell Me More And Then Some on Saturday October 18th at the last minute. I hope all of you who purchased tickets have received your refunds.  Please let us know if there were any problems with refunds.
 I had a medical emergency requiring immediate hospitalization on Friday (10/17) followed by surgery to remove my appendix on Saturday (10/18).  Everything went well and I am doing fine now but it was shocking how sudden and unexpected everything transpired.  We will reschedule the fundraiser in 2015 and hope you’ll be able to come out then.  [...]

Your comments are very important to us.  Jazzway concerts are very labor intensive and personalized, and sometimes it's easy to get discouraged.  I and several members of the BJA recently had a meeting with a Baltimore City contracting group that handles many of the City's local festivals  to encourage them to represent jazz more in their music line-up than they had in the past 2 years (when BJA had a healthy partnership with them).

So why are we doing this? Why do we continue to promote jazz and jazz artists that we believe need more exposure to the public - especially given [...]

Winard Harper 3/23/13: The audience was completely blown away by the charismatic Winard Harper and his outstanding group, Jeli Posse on March 23rd, 2013. We've had so many great concerts at Jazzway, but this was one of our most special.  So many folks came up and said it was one of the most enjoyable (if not THE best) concerts we've presented. Winard is such a beautiful soul and his virtuosity and happiness permeated the room. Watching the interplay between Winard and his equally joyful and musically outstanding band members was completely infectious and delighted the audience! A wonderful quote that was posted to his webpage recently sums it up:
  “Most of us know that this music is profound; even apocalyptic at times. However, it is so often approached on such a casual social and commercial level, we tend to ignore and overlook the stirrings within our souls and the voices of our ancestral ‘spirits’ that remind us of the fact, that [...]
