"Publicists, Clients, Journalists: Relationships" will be discussed by 
leading jazz p.r. professionals and the people they seek to address on Wednesday, 
November 20, 6 to 8 p.m., at the New School Jazz fifth floor performance space, 
55 W. 13th St., NYC, in the third monthly "Jazz Matters" panel/forum of fall 
'06, co-produced by New School Jazz and the Jazz Journalist Association.

With active contacts throughout the national press and international music 
industries, including performing artists, record labels, educational and 
membership organizations, festivals, concert producers and web-based initiatives, 
jazz publicists are key players in efforts to bring jazz to the public. Don 
Lucoff (DL Media), James Eigo (JazzPromo Works) and Tina Pelikan (ECM Records) are 
veteran publicists who have represented of the first magnitude -- such clients 
as Dr. Billy Taylor, Joe Lovano (and many others on Blue Note Records), Keith 
Jarrett (among a constellation of jazz and classical artists on ECM), the 
Columbia Legacy reissues and Justin Time Records, among many others. They speak 
candidly of the challenges, opportunities and different approaches they take to 
publicizing music and specific projects to various markets via diverse and 
fast-changing media. 

Howard Mandel, president of the Jazz Journalists Association, moderates, with 
promises of a 
journalist-panelist articulating distinctions between press relations and 
journalism itself.

6- 8 p.m. Wednesday November 20, New School Jazz fifth floor performance space, 
55 W. 13th St., NYC. For further information, call 212-533-9495
