Ralph Peterson and his Fo'tet with special guest Todd Marcus was exciting and unique beyond words! - April 29, 2013

ralph_peterson_promo.jpg

 

Thanks all for attending the Ralph Peterson Fo'tet concert with Special guest, Todd Marcus. What an exciting show!!  Ralph was the master bandleader and his young players had one of the most unique sounds we've heard. Ralph is another good example of a mentor that inspires his young students and players - teaching them the tradition but encouraging them to develop their own sound while making their interpretations of jazz relevant to the present!  Felix Peikli, Joseph Doubleday and Alex Toth were stunning performers - and adding Todd Marcus to the mix for the last 4 tunes bumped it up a big notch!! Thanks to all the players for creating such a memorable night and to the patrons (we had a sold out crowd!!) who showed their respect an appreciation for the music!! You'll never know how much your encourage these musicians!

Winard Harper Harper and Jeli Posse - true heros of Jazz! - March 24, 2013

 

rsz_1img_8825_cropped_coexist_redux_2.jpg 

The audience was completely blown away by the charismatic Winard Harper and his outstanding group, Jeli Posse. 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 there is a revelation of certain prophetic dimensions inherent in this music.”
–Doug Carn

 Everyone will remember this concert for a long time.  And I am committed to bringing Winard and his group back. The dedication he shows to his young players in teaching them to revere the tradition of the past great ones, while encouraging them to be bold and modern in their innovative approaches, makes him one of our nation's most precious heroes of jazz!

If you want to experience the joy for yourself - visit Winard's Facebook page and purchase a copy of his autographed CD, Coexist :

Marianne's show at Germano's Trattoria was a big hit! - May 19, 2012

Marianne's Joni Mitchell Project concert at Germano's Trattoria was a big hit with the audience! 

 

 Marianne_at_Germano_s.jpeg

We had a sold out crowd who listened attentively and gave us a standing O at the end!  I am overwhelmed! The musicians were outstanding and worked hard to create a sophisticated but accessible program. A million thanks to Craig Alston, Alan Blackman, Eric Kennedy, Michael Raitzyk and Jeff Reed for being one of the best and most dedicated bands I've worked with.  And thank you to everyone who came out and supported us.  We will be repeating this program at other venues in Maryland and DC and beyond before going into the studio to record it. We'll keep you posted on all upcoming Joni Project concerts!

What's New? - October 23, 2011

Pizzeria Venti!  We are now partnering with Pizzeria Venti in Alexandria, Virginia to present more jazz in alternate locations. We expect to schedule 1 concert a month at the new venue.  Our partner at Pizzeria is Angela Lacey and her contact info can be found on each of our event listings for Pizzeria Venti .  Our first concert at Pizzeria Venti featured the masterful Craig Alston Quartet on October 8th  and we had a great turnout! We hope for many more successes at this location and thank the management for being so accommodating and embracing live music!  Our next concert at Pizzeria Venti will feature The Tim Green Quartet on November 19th.

Downloadable fliers – Go to our calendar and check out our downloadable fliers. We have created an option on the website for you to download a flier for any one of our currently listed calendar events.  Now you can conveniently download Jazzway 6004 and Pizzeria Venti event info wherever you are!

New ticketing system – Change is difficult.  But we decided that changing from  Brown Paper Tickets, headquartered in Seattle to Instant Seats, which is DC based would offer more local promotion opportunities and be more convenient for patrons, and musicians alike.  This system will allow you to print out your own tickets on-line and tickets will also be available at the door (for Pizzeria Venti only).  Unfortunately no phone sales are offered, and cash must be paid at the door, but we plan to add a credit card payment option at the door within the next two months. We are still working out the bugs and learning the system, but we expect that this will turn out to be a more efficient and flexible option for taking payments and for getting the word out.

                                                        Remembering Uncle Joe

 

Joseph Albert Casucci  - June 15, 1928- July 8, 2010

 STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Joseph Albert Casucci, 82, of The Villages, Fla., a former Staten Island resident who was one of the founding families of the Eden II School for Autistic Children, died last Thursday in Florida Hospital East, Orlando.

Born in Manhattan, he was brought to West Brighton as a child. After his marriage in 1952, he moved to Sunnyside. He settled in The Villages about 10 years ago.

Mr. Casucci worked for over 20 years as vice president of Covent Ventilating, Manhattan. While working with the company, Mr. Casucci designed air conditioning systems for the former World Trade Center, Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall. He retired in 1990.

Mr. Casucci attended McKee High School, and left to join the U.S. Navy, where he served as pharmacist’s mate during World War II. After receiving his general equivalency diploma, Mr. Casucci briefly attended Wagner College, Grymes Hill, and earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from New York University’s School of Engineering.  According to family, he went to school at night for 12 years while working to support his family.

Mr. Casucci and his wife, Jean, were among the founding families that created the Eden II School for Autistic Children. At that time in 1976, the program operated inside the former Bayley Seton Hospital, Clifton. The program evolved into multiple locations boroughwide that provide classroom and vocational instruction; adaptive physical education; speech therapy; psychological, social and residential services; parent training, and adult training. It serves children from pre-school age to adult.

Mr. Casucci served as the school’s first president and, according to family, because his son, Larry, was autistic, both he and his wife were actively involved in caring for their son and creating the school’s programs.

Mr. Casucci was a man of sincere personal Christian faith, who had a deep love for family and friends, family members said. He was proud of his Italian ethnicity, and was committed to the honor and tradition of his heritage.

Deeply patriotic, he was a former member of the Joseph F. Merrell American Legion Post, West Brighton.

Mr. Casucci was an avid Yankees fan, golfer and a longtime member of the Staten Island Fairway Golf Club.

“He was known for his infectious smile, exceptional dancing ability, generous spirit and uncanny ability to tell an entertaining story,” said his wife of 58 years, the former Jean Polizzi.

He enjoyed spending time with family and was especially devoted to his grandchildren.

Along with his wife, Jean, also surviving are four sons, Steve, Joe, Daniel and Larry; two daughters, Annmarie Mercaldo and Jeanette Rasmussen; one brother, Carmine; four sisters, Antoinette Kilgannon, Rose Collo, Anna Mantani and Florence Peters, and six grandchildren.

The funeral will be Friday from the Harmon Home for Funerals, West Brighton, with a service at 10 a.m. in the Church at the Gateway, Richmond Valley. Burial will be in St. Peter’s Cemetery, West Brighton.
