Each forum features discussion led by preeminent members and leaders of the jazz community about how to build and maintain a successful music career. Located at Local 802 and other venues across the city, the informal setting allows for relaxed communication and a free-flowing exchange of ideas between the audience and the artists, encouraging full participation and interaction. The events are free and open to the public.
Jesse Markowitz is a Toronto-born resident of New York City where he spends his days stoking the starmaker machinery behind the American art song; which is to say he runs his own promotions company specializing in social media for jazz musicians, with such luminary clients as Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, Roy Hargrove, Chris Potter and Fred Hersch. Jesse is a saxophone owner, and before migrating to the promotional side of music, he studied in the jazz program at Humber College, as well as the culinary school at George Brown College.
