For a picture of Jonathan Russell trading fours with an old man at a July 4
jazz event, preceding the fireworks, see:

Leave the site on for 5 minutes (if you have dial up) and hear the
background Sweet Georgia Brown by Independence Hall JB. With Jon-Erik Kellso
and Orange Kellin. .

He appears at a Tri State Jazz Society Concert on January 23, 2005. Details
above. This is the first of at least 10 appearances we will book him at
during 2005. Second is February 20, 2005 at the Pennsylvania Jazz Society
Mardi Gras. 

WHY? Because HE generates the NEW AUDIENCE.

Suggest everybody reading this figure out a way to book him. No need to have
us with him. He has played with Polcer, Pearl Django, Paris Washboard, Igor,
Chicago Six, and others.

He just won an under 13 jazz violin FIRST PLACE award from the assocviation
of American Music Teachers, studies with Andy Stein, has played with Johnny
Frigo, etc., etc., etc. Not bad for a 9 year old.

Imagine how you too can generate publicity at schools and in the media for
YOUR FESTIVAL by booking this young jazz musician.
