⭐️LOOP COLLABORATOR SPOTLIGHT: ADAM SCHATZ⭐️ @adamlouisschatz is one of my oldest and dearest friends. We met the first week of college in the dorms at NYU and even then I was struck by Adam’s ambition, loyalty, incredible talent and passion for bringing people together through music. This stylish, eccentric and kind human has done more creative projects than I can count, but most notably he is the frontman and bandleader for @landladyband , presenter for the @nycwjf , music curator for @threesbrewing , producer and sound engineer for countless artists and musician for @manmanbandband and many many many more bands. I’m exhausted just listing all of these! Our collaborative relationship began soon after meeting in college and has persisted; I’ve choreographed his music videos, he’s made sound designs for my work, we’ve done various live improvisatory dance and music performances together and the LOOP process has allowed us to dig deeper into our collective creative potential over time. I’m so excited to see where this collaboration and our generative relationship goes! Supporting LOOP means supporting Adam Schatz. Please consider contributing to our Kickstarter so Adam is paid what he deserves. Every dollar counts! Please and Thank you!

RIP Randy Weston
My first job after college I worked part time at the San Francisco Jazz Festival (thank you @unesirene @sfjazzrandall and Hilda Mendez). Assigned to pick up Mr. Weston at SFO Airport, I had little difficulty finding him, towering at 6’8”. He seemed to barely fit in the Lincoln town car I was driving but I was ever thankful he did. From the moment we left the airport we engaged in conversation about South Africa, Max Roach, Gnawa Music, Uhuru Afrika, and the Brooklyn jazz scene he grew up in. We were so deep in it that I got us lost in the Mission which he found amusing, and said he was pleased to have that time to talk jazz, AS WAS I. A true giant of jazz; an NEA Jazz Master; an educator; an activist; a gentleman; a Brooklyn jazz legend - Randy Weston I am eternally grateful to have spent that memorable time with you. Your teachings live on and your music continues to resonate. Rest In Power
