Steve Swell's "Nation of We" Large Ensemble Needs Your Support
I don't usually involve my blogs with Kickstarter projects. But I am making an exception. Trombonist-jazz composer Steve Swell is a leading light of modern jazz on the New York scene. His Nation of We comprises some of the Big Apple's finest improvisers playing the music of Steve Swell. The economic logistics of getting advanced big band music out is complicated. There is a new Nation of We album slated for release shortly, but the economic reality is that the label cannot afford to pay the musicians for their work. Steve has turned to Kickstarter to raise the money for this. The deadline is August 28th. They need to raise at least $3,000 by then or they will not get anything at all. Click on the image on this page to get the full details. Chip in one dollar, chip in more. All of it will help!
