Be advised that yr. humble & harried editor has just about completed an extensive update of the St. Louis Jazz Notes Calendar.
Among the additions are everything that' s been announced so far about the 2008-09 musical lineups for Jazz at the Bistro, the Sheldon Concert Hall, the Touhill Performing Arts Center, and New Music Circle, as well as fall schedules for the Jazz at Holmes and Kemper Museum series at Washington University and the St. Louis Jazz Club. There still are a handful of individual club and band listings that need to get plugged in here and there, but that work should be wrapped up tonight. Also, there are a couple of local presenters, notably the Webster University music department, who have yet to make their 2008-09 schedules public (at least anywhere that I can find). That information will be added as soon as it's available
Of course, the work of keeping the calendar up to date is never truly done, as your submissions of event information are always welcome. If you're a band, musician, presenter, promoter, club owner, venue operator, school band director, etc. you can get your concert, club gig or other jazz- or creative music-related event included in the St. Louis Jazz Notes Calendar simply by emailing the information to me at stljazznotes at yahoo dot com. The listings are free of charge, and you don't have to send an elaborate press release - a simple note will do, but please be sure to include the name of the musician or group and/or a brief description of the event; the time, date and place; and admission charge, if any.
