Hi all -- about the party at Iridium, on Thurs Jan 11 from 6 to 8 --  
I've got to correct an oversight and note the schedule.

Firstly -- This is a JJA/JazzCorner party -- JazzCorner.com is of  
course the jazz website hosting and maintaining almost 200 individual  
sites for musicians, service organizations and record co's, and also  
offering innumerable services to its clients. Thanks to its managing  
director Lois Gilbert, JazzCorner also plays an active role in  
programs and projects of the greater community, working with the Jazz  
Foundation of America and Jazz Alliance International as well as the  
JJA (Lois has been central to planning and implementation of the Jazz  
Awards, by the way).

Timing-wise:
the hour I previously stated for the JJA panel was wrong, it runs  
from 5 to 6 p.m. And this  panel is, as described in the IAJE schedule:
"Jazz Journalism in Naughties. A discussion of the need for freelance  
journalists to make new and interesting connections with other art  
forms and trends as well as establishing, defending, selling and  
promoting your turf to editors and audiences. Moderator: Tad  
Hendrickson  Panelists: David Adler (JJA); Robin James (Minnesota  
Spokesman-Recorder); Ashley Kahn (NPR); Anastasia Tsioulcas  
(Billboard)."

Further timing: IAJE and the Milt Hinton Awards Committee is present  
the Milt Hinton Award for excellence in jazz photography  this year  
to David Redfern, the British music photojournalist and stock agency  
principle. A reception honoring David, is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m.,  
at the Penthouse Suite-Room #4501 of the Sheraton -- RSVP for that  
one to R. Andrew Lepley, raljazzpix at aol.com.

THE JJA/JazzCorner party at Iridium (to which about 60 people have  
rsvp'd so far, split evenly between JJA and JazzCorner members and  
friends -- space is limited, though -- and we'll have NO live music,  
the better to talk and schmooze) runs from 6 to 8 -- so there's  
overlap, but no locked conflict with any of these events. You've just  
got to move fast, but that's IAJE for ya.

For those who can't get to the International Association for Jazz  
Education's annual conference this year, apologies for details of  
little interest to you. HOWEVER, you needn't miss the events  
entirely. John Chacona is blogging from the conference for our JJA  
website www.Jazzhouse.org, and photographer Sy Johnson will be  
documenting select meetings, formal and informal, for the JJA in his  
inimitably personal, jazzwise style.

Even more: JJA photographer Lourdes Delgado exhibits photographs from  
her extraordinary portfolio "Jazz in New York: A Community of  
Visions" during IAJE at the Knitting Factory (next wednesday is the  
annual midwinter jazz carnival, three stages of performances from 6  
p.m 'til 2 am) and also in the Grand Lobby of the Brooklyn Public  
Library at Grand Army Plaza (through February 11, with an Artist Talk  
on Jan. 13 -- www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/events/culturearts/ for  
further info.

thought you should know --
