Hello friends!

New schedule for the newsletter: I've decided to start sending the 
newsletter on Thursdays instead of Mondays so that I can give you direct 
links to both shows each week. That way everyone reading the newsletter 
in whatever format can go immediately to either episode mentioned and 
start listening. (Thanks to Matt Merewitz for the suggestion.)

Another sax player in the family: My son Bernie is now playing the 
saxophone. I'd be lying if I said this didn't make me ridiculously proud.

Special Membership Offer: The Jazz Session is member-supported, so if 
you like what you hear, please join. The next two people who join at the 
middle or top level (yearly or monthly) will receive guitarist Anthony 
Wilson's new DVD/CD set Seasons. This set captures a unique live 
performance by Wilson along with Steve Cardenas, Julian Lage and Chico 
Pinheiro, performing on a quartet of custom guitars built by John 
Monteleone. http://thejazzsession.com/join

Widget: If you add AAJ's The Jazz Session widget to your site, let me 
know and I'll mention you in this newsletter. Thanks to

& culture people to follow on Twitter, which you can do here: 

Peace, love and jazz,
