Hello friends!

Happy New Year! Thanks for making 2011 a successful year for The Jazz 
Session. I'm excited to see what 2012 will bring.

JazzTimes Talk: I'm speaking at 11:30 this morning (1/5) at the 
JazzTimes DIY Crash Course at the Hilton Hotel on 6th and 53rd in NYC. 
There are great speakers and panels all day and it's free. Come on by!

New Poetry Series In Brooklyn: I'm running a poetry series (open mic + 
featured poet) on the fourth Thursday of every month at the Green Fig 
Cafe on 36th St between 4th and 5th Ave in Brooklyn. It starts at 7. No 
fee but we'll pass the hat to pay the featured poet. Bring a poem and 
come on by! First one is January 26th.

Sweet Violence: One of the most moving and important exhibits I've seen 
at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC is called Sweet Violence. It collects 
work by feminist activist Sanja Ivekovic. Do not miss it. Runs through 

My Book: I just received another shipment of Unexpected Sunlight, so if 
you've wanted to order one, now's the time. You can get your copy here: 

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

Peace, love and jazz,



TJS #334: Michael Pedicin. Saxophonist Michael Pedicin’s new album is 
Ballads ...searching for peace (Jazz Hut, 2011). In this interview, 
Pedicin talks about this influence of his father on his career; why he 
feels he had to work his way up to a ballads album; and how he came to 
terms with his place in the worlds of both jazz and medicine. LISTEN: 

TJS #335: Pete Robbins. Saxophonist Pete Robbins’ new CD is Live In 
Basel (Hate Laugh Music, 2011) with his Transatlantic Quartet. In this 
interview, Robbins talks about the benefits of a working band; why his 
last three recordings have been live albums; and why his next project 
will find him traveling down yet another new musical road.  LISTEN:
