Music to Help & Heal

The news from Haiti doesn't get better but, thankfully, there are many people making great efforts to ease the suffering.

On Monday, February 1, there will be Haiti Relief Pianothon taking place from 7 - 10 p.m. at Saint Peter's Church,  Lexington Avenue and 54th Street in New York City.  Among the pianists scheduled to perform are Frank Kimbrough, Pete Malinverni, Rodney Kendrick, Harold O'Neal, Dan Tepfer (pictured left), Armen Donelian, Deanna Witkowski and many others.  Proceeds benefit Real Medicine Foundation ( and World Water Solar (

The flyer I received gave no contact information, only the time and place. 

On Friday and Saturday (February 5 & 6) at 8 p.m., the Monterey Jazz Festival comes to UCONN's Jorgenensen Auditorium.  The performance space will be set up as a nightclub, with candle-lit tables and cabaret fare.  Scheduled to perform are the highly expressive vocalist Kurt Elling, great swinging guitarist Russell Malone, recently named NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron & Trio and the fine violinist Regina Carter.  A portion of the proceeds go to help victims of the Haitian Earthquake.  For more information, call 860-486-4226.
