i just launched www.localflux.net -- the focus is to get nonconventional thinkers and doers in one location, and offer a platform to learn from one another, incubate/host think tanks, and provide the infrastructure to physically meet and collaborate on future projects. jazz can be an important constituent to creative endeavors/projects, and i dig your music, and think that if mashed-up with other creative people (jazz and non-jazz related), it can offer for some important conversation and collaboration

i developed and funded the project myself, from my apartment in brooklyn, over the course of the last two years. and would greatly like to showcase the your work within my project, perhaps via interview, think tank discussion, or some sort of cross-pollinating project. please let me know if you're interested, additionally, feel free to create a profile in the meantime, upload some content, and invite colleagues -- baby steps in the right direction. thanks in advance for any support you can provide to this project!

much respect,

brooklyn, ny

My name is Samuel A. Small, Sr. Executive Producer of All That's Jazz. We are beginning preproduction of our show by lining up some of the best Jazz Artist that jazz has out now. We are also trying to also acquire sponsorship in order to pay the artist and personalities who appear on the show. In order to do this we must have a commitment from the artist to show the sponsors that the show will work. We are looking to begin production in August/September. We would love to have you on our show and would like to know if you would be interested in being on the show? Drop me a line to let us know. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

A pleasant surprise to walk into 55Bar hearing your music! On a five days trip to NYC from Norway this was one of the definitive high points on our stay. I told you when I bought your record that your music reminded me of some of the stuff that Return to forever did in the 70s, but after listening to your record I find it to be quite original. And above all: Very beautiful! Thanks!

Hey Guys,

I work next door to the Royale, and last night while I worked late, I heard you guys through the walls and up into my space on the third floor. As I left to go home, I had to come down and buy see if there was a CD I could buy, and I was happy there was. The music is excellent! It is very moving and quite refreshing. Of course, I knew I would like it since it moved me emotionally and considerably as I heard it through several walls and floors before hearing it in the raw and then on CD. Please let me know about upcoming gigs and other CDs... you have a new, loyal fan!
