Choices & opinions in this publication are entirely personal, with primary focus on the miraculous art form known as jazz (meaning original, creative, heartfelt, improvised music that embraces & extends the tradition ~ or as John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie put it, "You've got to keep one foot in the past & the other in the future"). Please double~check all information before acting on it, since mistakes & changes do happen. Phone numbers shown without area codes are (212). The newsletter is divided into 3 sections: (1) special announcements & survival news (though creative endeavor is inherently non~competitive except with oneself, a few contests are sometimes listed among the survival announcements because they offer significant prize money to winners & may actually bestow some on the deserving); (2) continuous events; (3) upcoming events. Events are listed in order of chronology first, then time, then alphabetically by venue within NYC, then (last) out of town.

Many performers these days make careers as imitators, in music negotiating their way neatly through charts & copying other people's solos, sounds, & styles; often these persons receive strong support from political, social & corporate powers seeking to appropriate cultural riches that belong to others, or to kill what they do not & cannot own. Meanwhile, many living masters with original voices, true creativity, & real passion struggle on in relative obscurity, trying to add something new to what has already been said in the music. To quote Billie Holiday, if you aren't being original, "It's close~order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, but not music." By this definition, wherever possible, only authentic musicians are listed herein.



NOTE: These concert listings had been provided both in print and on the Web, continuously and free of charge to anyone, for more than 12 years; the section called "special announcements" (which assists all musicians), Web sites maintained for Roy Campbell, Jr., Henry Grimes, Joe McPhee, and Sonny Sharrock, and the tribute site for Jeanne Lee will still be continued. Due to a combination of exhaustion and changing priorities, perspectives, and personal circumstances, concert~listings portions of this Web site were discontinued at the end of January, but because so many people in New York for the summer are pleading for some listings, the following MinimaList is offered.

...And there's always more to follow...

...So if people tell you our music isn't happening these days, 
find out why they're lying to you!

"This is the sound of silhouettes / images & forecasts of tomorrow / disguised as jazz," Sun Ra said. Take note! And take action: Ralph Ellison wrote in "Invisible Man," "At first I was afraid: This familiar music had demanded action, the kind of which I was incapable, & yet had I lingered there beneath the surface, I might have attempted to act. Nevertheless, I know now that few really listen to this music." Or as Amiri Baraka puts it, "It is not enough to witness / you are somewhere anyway."

You have received the current issue of ART ATTACK! ®, compiled, written, published & distributed by Margaret Davis, free of charge or commercial content, with prevailing inspiration from Henry Grimes and from the spirit of Sonny Sharrock. I am deeply grateful for donations, supplies, help, encouragement, & love freely & variously given within the past year by these & many others:  Chuck Anderson, Fred Anderson, wonderful young Master Andrew Bemkey, Lucas Benacerraf (my hero) & little Audrey, Janice Bennett, Karl Billerts, Mark Blacher, Terry Callier, Charles Carrico, Ted, Meaddows, & Justin Ciuzio, Clare Cooper, Bill Dixon, Hamid Drake, Jim Eigo, Dina Elkan (sine qui non...), Douglas Ewart, Enid Farber, Kali Fasteau, Mark Frederick, Pat Frisco, Dr. David Goldfarb, Jon Gordon, Lonnie Graham, Hilliard Greene, Will Halsey, Michael S. Harper, Robert Holub, Jr., James Jamison, Sensei/ Shaku Joseph Jarman, Kidd Jordan, Lou & Margaret Kannenstine, Barrie Karp, Byard Lancaster, Laura Lonshein Ludwig, Jane Malmo, Joe & Sonia Maneri, Laine Stearns Massey, Joe McPhee (if you haven't found Joe yet, I am truly sorry for you), Harold Meiselman, Mixashawn, William Parker, Don & Rona Payne, Steve Perlmutter, Michael Pribich, Dewey Redman, mighty James, Susannah, & James Elijah Reid, Eleanor Rogers & John Rogers, Roswell Rudd, Jeff & Anne Schlanger, Barbara Sfraga, supreme Catman Spirit Star S., Clint Simonson, John D.

Special thanks also to Charles Carrico for help with the mysteries of the Web; to Steve Zeitlin & City Lore for organizational back~up; & to "FYI," the N Y Foundation for the Arts's wonderful free publication, from which I glean many of the artist survival items that make up the first section of this site:  155 Ave. of the Americas, 14th floor, NYC 1OO13~15O7, (212) 366~69OO, <www.nyfa.org>.  Above all, I'm grateful for the welcome I receive from so many beautiful beings (human & beyond) whenever I get to the places my music calls me.

This publication contains information I know about at present & covers approximately the upcoming month; updates have followed as quickly & as often as possible. To offer comments, to be added to the mailing list, to order beautiful handmade musician portrait pins, for information on the Sonny Sharrock memorial book, &/ or for special inquiries as to specific dates or artists, send mail to me at 1573 York Ave., #2~N, New York, NY 1OO28~6OO7, phone (212) 841~O899, fax (212) 988~7344, <musicmargaret@earthlink.net> or <liberationmusic@hotmail.com>.   ART ATTACK!® is on the Web at <www.jazznewyork.org>, & has been on the Web for more than eight years now, thanks to Andrew Bemkey and Charles Carrico.

In love & music,

Margaret Davis
