(APRIL 18, 2011) -- Is this the end of The Jazz Session?

Sixth months ago I started my “100 x 300” campaign with the goal of 
recruiting 100 paid subscribers to the show by the 300th episode. In the 
months since then, about two dozen people have signed up to become 
members. With just over 40 shows left, I need more than 70 members to 
make the show financially viable enough for me to continue to do it.

Every week I get emails from listeners all over the world telling me how 
much they like the show and how valuable it is to them. I need you to 
demonstrate that value by becoming a member. You can do it for as little 
as $10 per month or $110 per year (and the levels go up from there).

I love interviewing musicians and bringing you their stories. But my 
financial circumstances have changed drastically since I started doing 
this show four years ago, and I sincerely need your help.

So please become a member and help keep The Jazz Session alive. And if 
you’re already a member, please tell your friends and encourage them to 
support the show. http://thejazzsession.com/join

I wrote two new poems last week, one inspired by a performance by Fay 
Victor & Dominic Lash:


...and the other inspired by a Ben Allison show:

“new york basement blues”

I also wrote a brief essay on hugging:

CD GIVEAWAY: I've got three autographed copies of Before The Rain, the 
new CD by Monday's guest, Noah Preminger. To win one, send an email to 
contest at thejazzsession.com with NOAH in the subject line. First three 
emailers win the CD.

Next week on the show: Adam Cruz (TJS #260, Monday) and Jon Gordon (TJS 
#261, Thursday).

Peace, love and jazz,


This week on The Jazz Session:

TJS #258: Noah Preminger. Saxophonist Noah Preminger’s new CD is Before 
The Rain (Palmetto, 2011). In this interview, Preminger talks about his 
musical upbringing; why he spend a lot of time planning the order of the 
songs in a performance; and the important of being respectful. SHOW 

TJS #259: Matthew Shipp & Darius Jones. Pianist Matthew Shipp and 
saxophonist Darius Jones have a new duet CD called Cosmic Lieder (AUM 
Fidelity, 2011). In this wide-ranging and often funny interview, 
recorded in a diner in New York, Shipp and Jones discuss everything from 
intergenerational collaborations to their shared and individual musical 
languages. SHOW AVAILABLE STARTING 4/21/11.
