15 Years & Counting - Marce Enright and New England Traditional Jazz Plus!
For fifteen long years Marce Enright has been a champion and promoter of the New England jazz scene. Her website New England Traditional Jazz Plus has become a fixture here in New England where she lists all the major jazz events that are upcoming and gives detailed accounts of previous jam sessions, with illustrations of photographs, that she has taken herself, and videos where one can actually see and hear some of the music that has taken place.
Marce also puts out reviews and stories and links to various jazz oriented websites as well as mailing out an awesome newsletter with meticulous listings, addresses and contact information for just about every traditional jazz and swing event that will be playing in the New England area.
Last year some of the bands that she has publicized, and the fans of those bands, acknowledged her for her terrific and hard work over all the years. She was honored with a special gift at the Jazz Jamboree at the Sherborn Inn, in Sherborn, Massachusetts.
I recently saw Marce at a performance of the Wolverine Jazz Band led by John Clark which she was covering. She pointed out that April was Jazz Appreciation Month, which I had no idea and expressed an interest in finding some jazz enthusiasts to help her with collecting information for the performance listings. Anyone who loves jazz and who might be interested in helping Marce out or anyone interested in ordering her mailed out newsletter can contact her here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
