FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE WINTER JAZZ SERIES AT THE SHRINERS Cranston—The Rhode Island Shriners are hosting a new winter series, Jazz Revelations, in the McIntyre Room at One Rhodes Place, Cranston, RI 02905. Dates in 2014 are Thursdays on October 16th, November 20th, and December 11th, from 6 pm to 9 pm. Imperial Room Catering will offer a delicious pub menu, and an amiable bartender will provide your favorite beverage, from 5 pm to 9 pm. You can enjoy a pleasant evening of outstanding music and light dinner, seated with your friends at tables with low lighting and a cozy fireplace. “We think that there are many jazz lovers in our area who will appreciate our hassle-free parking and nearby location. By creating this series, we are showing our support for live music, our talented local musicians, and Historic Edgewood/Pawtuxet Village as an alternative entertainment destination”, said Hillary Williamson, Director of Sales for the Rhode Island Shriners Imperial Room. Each night there will be two bands playing long sets. Opening the series will be The Lower River Trio, with Chris Gagnon on sax and clarinet, Chris Lacaille on drums, and Matt Passeroni on bass. Joining them will be The Clay Nordhill Trio with Clay Nordhill on guitar, Jim Nordhill on drums, and Sam Kurzontkowski on bass. Both groups will be playing their own modern compositions, along with a selection of jazz standards. An admission charge of $10 at the door will support the musicians. Shriners may attend free of charge, but are encouraged to support the bands with a donation. Further details are available on Facebook at http://goo.gl/RkQ6lj.SIDEBAR Members of The Lower River Trio enjoy frequent rehearsals. You can hear it in how well Matt Passeroni on bass and Chris Lacaille on drums play off of each other. Listen to Chris Gagnon build music on sax as thoughtfully as he inspects bridges in his day job, and you’ll have a new respect for the soulfulness of engineers. But the real thrill comes when Chris goes wistful on clarinet, an instrument heard far too little in modern jazz. Clay Nordhill does nothing by halves, putting in six hours of composing and guitar practice daily while enrolled at URI. That’s how he wrote so many songs this summer, inspired by the ideas of European pianists such as Benedikt Jahnel, and Agnar Magnusson. His father, Jim, proudly supports the Clay Nordhill Trio on tightly played drums that belie his self-proclaimed “amateur” status. Add Sam Kozontkowski’s fast finger work on bass and delightful wah-wah’d bowing, and it’s no wonder these guys are smiling; they have a lot to be pleased about.

RUN & WALK SO THEY CAN READ

Take a moment and imagine your life if you could not read. Really. You would be missing out on opportunities that foster creative growth and thinking in all you do. If you could not read, your innate curiosity would turn to frustration and anger – not a good combination of feelings. Children born with a neurological disorder called dyslexia struggle with these feelings every day. Through no fault of their own they are faced with reading and writing roadblocks that can seem insurmountable…….until now. This October, we are running & walking to raise to help children with dyslexia learn to read and write. Dyslexia cannot be cured, but it can be overcome. The program offered at The Children’s Dyslexia Center of Rhode Island offers the most effective treatment of its kind in battling this disorder. Last year’s event drew approximately 250 runners and walkers and was reviewed as outstanding.

 COME JOIN US ON A FLAT COURSE THAT STARTS AND ENDS ON NARRAGANSETT BAY!
