Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! We're thrilled to announce the launch of Spanish Harlem Orchestra's debut ArtistShare project, "Spanish Harlem Orchestra," which also just so happens to feature legendary jazz musicians Chick Corea and Joe Lovano as guest artists. Spanish Harlem Orchestra (SHO) is a two-time GRAMMY Award-winning salsa and latin jazz band based in New York City.
SHO's music is heavily rooted in history and tradition, and this project hones in on these aspects deeply. For SHO fans/participants, this is an amazing way to learn about the legacy and culture of authentic latin jazz music - an experience like no other. Want to meet members of the orchestra? Sponsor a SHO concert at a school to carry on the history and tradition of latin jazz music? Go to all their concerts as a VIP guest for a whole year? Well now you can. Join their project today!

The Gil Evans Project at Jazz Standard a couple weeks ago was quite a magnificent experience. Directed by Ryan Truesdell, the GRAMMY Award-Winning Gil Evans Project consists of incredible top notch jazz musicians, creating an extraordinarily powerful group as a whole. Each night was filled with nothing but true, pure Gil Evans love. Previously unrecorded, unheard Gil Evans music. The entire week was recorded live and will be released on ArtistShare.
Here's the exciting part: you can help this project come to life by becoming a participant! In other words, you can stay up to date on the project, access behind-the-scenes content, and so much more -- all while supporting this project and guaranteeing it's success! More information here.
