Its a wonderful time to be living. My life has shown me the live Big Band sounds of The Count Basie Orchestra and Duke Ellington, Elvis, live in concert during the 50's and 60's, then The Beatles in the 60's and 70's, and scores of Rock & Roll and Jazz shows in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. What will we have going into the next century? We feel quite sure there will be Jazz. Having been in the Jazz Concert Promotion Business for the past 25 years, and having seen Jazz evolve from its Traditional forms into Jazz Fusion, Contemporary Jazz, Smooth Jazz and the emergence of Acid Jazz, we have little doubt of the staying power and importance of the ever-evolving Jazz idiom. We look forward to the many more years of Jazz, and all of the surprises that will come with them. As Jazz migrates from generation to generation, we are excited to work with its new sounds, new artists, and ever more innovative Jazz Music. Michael Schivo Presents has always been on the cutting-edge of music, and will continue to do so for many more decades. Lets hope it never stops.
