Jazz Education Network 2014 Conference Day 3
Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: January 11, 2014
As I rush off to experience Day 4 of the Jazz Education Network 2014 Annual Conference, aka #JEN14, in Dallas, here's some of the highlights of Day 3, Friday, January 10, 2014, as shared during the day on TNJT Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, Storify-like. From orienting Jazz 88 to JEN through attending Committee meetings, to cruizing the squeeking and squaking of the Exhibit all, I took in panels, adjudicated student sessions, and full blown concerts in lobbies! The day was capped off my the moving awards ceremony at the LeJENds of Jazz Education Gala Fundraiser and an evening of concerts that will be remembered forever. I am totally impressed by the JEN Board, Committees, and Presentors, but also the many volunteers, students, and Jazz fans taking part in this very well run conference. On to Day 4!!

The full story is after the split, but here's a slideshow of some shots from the day and a sample of the evening ending performance by vocal ensemble Groove For Thought...Enjoy!

The Jazz Education Network Annual Conference shifted into high gear on Wednesday, January 9, 2014, with it's first full day of clinics, adjudicated student performances, panels, professional musician-educator concerts, keynotes, award presentations, and committee meetings, wrapping up with a wonderful evening of music from world-class student ensembles and professional musicians. There was evening the time-tested jam sessions for both students and professionals into the wee hours of the morning! Check out some of my goings on after the split, but here's a slideshow of pictures along with a video from the Cal State University Long Beach vocal ensemble Pacific Standard Time.


 
Jazz Education Network Annual Conference 2014 Kicks Off In Dallas
Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: January 9, 2014
Jazz Education is the focus of the Jazz Education Network, but after arriving in Dallas and attending the opening day of the 5th JEN 2014 Annual Conference, hereafter known as JEN14, there is a whole lot more going on. The New Jazz Thing and San Diego's Jazz 88 is attending the conference to make some connections with this organization on a very similar mission to Jazz 88 and see how we can help them as they prepare for the 6th Annual Conference which will be help in our home port, San Diego (or as they jokingly pronounced it Ron Burgandy-style many times during the evening's performances "San Di-Ah-go"). Actually, the meat and potatoes of the event begins on Day 2 as clinics, presentations, committee meetings, and lots more student and professional musician performance really kick into gear. Day 1 was all about registering, introductions at the JEN Presidents Founders reception, and an evening of both formal and jam session music by very polished local Jazz ensembles.

Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: January 6, 2014
LISTEN LIVE Monday 6-8 PM PT @Jazz88 San Diego's Jazz 88.3 FM, Jazz88.org, and Apple/Android Apps to The New Jazz Thing @Jazz88 with Vince Outlaw...Supported by Listener Contributors like YOU and DAI Architecture - Where A Dream Becomes A Design!
Tonight on the show...
  • Jazz Forward Coalition President Peter Gordon: The Jazz Connect Conference, organized by JazzTimes in conjunction with the Jazz Forward Coalition (JFC), takes place Thursday and Friday, January 9 and 10, 2013 in New York City. The 2013 conference saw attendance triple from 2012 to over 1,000 registrants making it one of the largest Jazz conferences. This year's theme is "The Road Ahead" and will include workshops, panels, and events with titles such as “Navigating Social Media”; “The Role of Education in Presenting Jazz”; “The New Paradigm for Record Labels”;and  “Radio Airplay & Promotion 101”. We will be chatting with JFC founding member and conference organizer Peter Gordon about the JFC, the conference, and the major challenges for the business of Jazz in 2014 and forward.
    • Dave Douglas will be a panel presenter ("“The New Paradigm for Record Labels”) at Jazz Connect and was on the NY Times Best of 2013 for "Time Travel", so we'll dip into that disc.
  • Jazz Education Network Executive Board Members: The Jazz Education Network (JEN) Annual Conference takes place in Dallas, Texas, Wednesday, January 8, 2013 through Saturday, January 11 and brings together over 3,000 jazz educations, student musicians, internationally renown musicians, and fans for a series of workshops, panels, and lots of performances. Their mission closely hews to the mission of San Diego's Jazz 88.3 and they will be holding their 2015 conference in San Diego, so Jazz 88 will be represented at the Dallas conference to begin planning for 2015 and forward. We'll be chatting with JEN President Andrew Surmani, Co-Founder/Past-President/Conference Coordinator Dr. Lou Fischer, and President-Elect Bob Sinicrope from Dallas as they make final preparations for the conference. 
  • New Jazz Made This Week! I'm looking to start a new feature on TNJT where I play Jazz Made This Week and posted online somewhere it can be shared with others. Did you go into the studio and post something on Soundcloud? Did your band play a gig and there's a video up on YouTube? Where else should I be looking for Jazz Made This Week...BandCamp, Reverbnation, ...?
  • Jazzweek.com Year End Jazz Chart: 2013: The No. 1 CD on the Top 100 Jazz Chart for 2013 as reported by JazzWeek stations is Christian McBride Trio Out Here (Mack Avenue). During 2013, this release was reported during 24 weeks and accumulated 4,408 spins. It peaked at No. 1 for three consecutive weeks: Aug. 26, Sept. 2 and Sept. 9. Is this chart biased for releases early in 2013? What other things can we learn from this chart? Wasn't Gregory Porter at the top for 9 weeks, but only ranks #11?
  • 56th Grammy Awards For Jazz will be given out Sunday, January 26, 2014. We'll do a quick review of the nominees and feature some music too!
  • Leonard Patton was one of George Varga's 2014 Faces To Watch, so we'll get ready for his 2014 release with soimething by this former (and hopefully returning) TNJT guest!
  • SD Jazz Writer extraordinaire Robert Bush released his Top 10 SD Jazz Releases of 2013, so we'll dip into that list and see what we pull out!
  • Clarinetist and sometimes vocalist Bobby Gordon, who made his home in San Diego, passed away on December 31, 2013. He was also well known from his time on Riverwalk Jazz. We'll play something in his honor.
