It's Sacramento Jubilee planning time. Once again, I'll be putting the
schedule on spreadsheets, to make it easier to plan the weekend in
advance. If you'd like a copy, follow the directions at the end of this post.
If you thought the Jubilee's money problems might affect the quality of the
festival, no need to worry. Most of the cuts are behind the scenes, though
there will be fewer foreign bands. There are still more than 40 venues,
and still over 100 bands. Plenty of great trad jazz.
I've found the spreadsheet schedules to be very helpful for planning. I
get to more of what I want to hear, and I do a lot less zig-zagging
around. Several DJML folks tell me it helps them too.
I designed it to be used with the Jubilee's printed program, with its
listings of special events, band personnel and other info. The printed
program doesn't have an overview schedule, because its pages aren't big
enough. So I take its schedule text, provided by our listmate Bill Gunter,
and arrange it like the schedule in the Sacramento Bee. Unlike the Bee's
schedule, this one is available in advance.
Please do NOT post this notice anywhere else.
As with past years, it's very important that this be limited to DJML. The
Jubilee people are concerned that widespread distribution of this schedule
would cut into sales of the printed program. That's not an issue here,
since DJML people generally want all the info they can get, and therefore
usually buy the program. But they've asked, quite reasonably, that it not
be available anywhere else.
So please do NOT re-post this.
You can get the Jubilee program in advance. Costs a few bucks extra for
postage and handling, but worth it for the ability to plan. You can buy it
on the Jubilee web site, www.sacjazz.com.
Or send $9.50 to
Sacto Trad Jazz Soc
2787 Del Monte St.
West Sacramento, CA 95691
The schedule will be in .xls files, using Excel version 4.0. That's an old
Excel version, which is more compatible with other software. If your
system can't read Excel data, I'll send the schedule as tab-delimited text,
which you can feed into a variety of programs. If you're not sure what
your system will handle, start with the Excel files. If they don't work,
ask for the text version. Either way, the schedule will be sent as four
attachments to an email, which will contain simple instructions.
