I'm writing to ask if you'd be willing to help get the word out about a very special project celebrating the life and music of the great jazz composer, author and educator David Baker.
Friends of David, with the support of his widow, are putting together a recording titled Basically Baker Volume 2: The Big Band Music of David Baker featuring the Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra. All proceeds generated by sales of the recording will go directly to the David N. Baker Scholarship Fund to provide a financial means for prospective students to attend the Jacobs School of Music Jazz Studies Program. The CD will be released by Patois Records.
I'm hoping you'll be interested in interviewing bandleaders Mark Buselli or Brent Wallarab, author Dr. Monika Herzig, who wrote David Baker, A Legacy in Music, or Patois label owner Wayne Wallace about the project.
If you've got a blog or a place to share this link on social media, I'd most appreciate it: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/basically-baker-2#/
Thanks so much for anything you can do.
