Jackson Street Jazz Walk

M. Seven Bremner ready for all your poetry needs at the Jackson Street Jazz Walk!

We were thrilled to once again sponsor some live poetry at the Jackson Street Jazz Walk!

But mostly, after organizing this for the last four years, it was a delight for Year Five to just go as a participant and leave the difficult job of organizing to Eugenie Jones. Yes, it was different, but hello, that is what keeps things fresh! SO IT WAS AWESOME AS ALWAYS. We have a lot of issues in the Central District that are direct result of systematic racism and economic inequality… but we also have a lot of GREAT neighbors and nothing like music and art to get everyone out together having fun. And my belief, from the minute I started this project, was if you can get people together having fun with each other, it makes having the difficult conversation and work in a neighborhood easier. Still hard, but easier.

Here are some more pictures!

Jackson Street Jazz Walk

By |

We are a proud sponsor of this year’s Jackson Street Jazz Walk! Come on down to Jackson Street in Seattle’s Central District for a night of great music, including a jam with Julian Priester, the Pratt Fine Arts Center annual open house with the popular bronze pour, and good food at the many restaurants along Jackson.

For four years, I organized this event, but at the press continues to grow and demand full attention, I was so happy to hand this off to NW Jazz Vocalist of the year, Eugenie Jones. So if you’ve come before, expect some changes, but one thing that won’t change is a bit of poetry happening as well. We’ve had some GREAT poets in the past, including Freshest Roots and William Curtis, so this year it’s our privilege to bring M. Seven Brenner to Pratt. She’ll be making poems for you on her typewriter, so think of a topic and get a poem!

Scores in Poetry Books

By | Ephemera, Music, Readings

Our thought is that perhaps this doesn’t happen enough. We will be printing a score by Syrinx Effect in our next book, The After. This piece, “Song for Dead Sparrows” was commissioned for the book. It is, in turns, discordant, angry, somber, and mysterious: it’s modern jazz! We love and it and think you will too.

During our reading events this fall, we will be giving out full size replicas of the original hand-drawn score by saxophonist, Kate Olson. So you will want to check out our Facebook page, entreriosbooks, for all the current readings.

And as a note, the thing I am absolutely finding most challenging in publishing is the long printing and marketing deadlines and planning required to pull it off. Mostly a vast struggle! But behold, this piece is back from the printer three months before we need it! Success! Now to get that book out the door.
