Musicworks: Check it Out

Musicworks, jazz trumpet player Jesse Neuman's new educational project, is hosting a benefit this weekend at the Bowery Poetry Club to raise funds for a second volunteer seminar with Fundacion Brass Band del Ecuador, a school and community safe haven serving underprivileged students and families in Quito. The event on Saturday, January 23rd at 2:00 pm is open to adults and children, and features members of Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, Brooklyn Qawwali Party, Imogen Heap, Michael Bolton, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Ursa Minor, Bjork, Josh Ritter, and the Saturday Night Band.

Oh, and did I mention that our very own Olivia will be playing sax on a James Brown song, Cold Sweat?
