So far, the coolest/least known, hippest/semi-secret hangout that I have found in my new city of Newark. Part of the Institute of Jazz Studies, of Rutgers University, one never knows whom one will see, either on or off the band-stand.
Wayne Winborne is the Executive Director.
Named after Clement Price, (wikipedia) Newark historian, Rutgers Professor, and jazz-lover.
All uncredited still & animated photos and videos are by me.
My first time there [11/14/18]:
(for a show produced by my friend Gregory Burrus).
“Future Rising,” led by Lance Bryant (sax).
Very good combo. Gil Scott Chapman (piano) was most friendly to me.
With my friend Gregory Burrus (music-lover, photographer, producer, promoter, publicist [South Orange/Maplewood-based, but he sure gets around!]) on the left.
Bytheway, Gregory Burrus is a supporter of local businesses, community events, jazz, blues, musicians, and local art exhibitions. Gregory is a manager and promoter of the South Orange Village Center Alliance “Downtown After Sundown,” Live Music Events, Board Member of the North Jersey Blues Alliance, Friend of the Valley Arts District in Orange, NJ and avid supporter of jazz, blues and art all around our towns and the Greater New York & New Jersey area. On a regular basis, Gregory gets the word out through social media marketing, writing articles, blogging and photojournalism.
