For a nice review by readers of Birdland Jazzista Social Club, read EBX article on Dayna Stephens and Birdland from last week. That's really what jazzistas are all about. http://www.eastbayexpress.com/ebx/a-new-bi… Jazzistas party to 3-4 bands deep fridays and saturdays now to support more local musicians.
Great article, Rachel. For clarification, Birdland Jazzista Social Club is beyond New York City and the US(save New Orleans); it's Lapa District in Rio de Janeiro where music is cracking till 5am; it's Casa de La Musica in Havana Centro where things don't jump until midnight; it's Malate district in Manila where people are loitering music clubs till 7am just hanging out with friends and then sleep all day the next day only to party again the next evening all night; and it's Southeast Asia where you can find street food all night on the street sitting on makeshift tables and plastic chairs on the sidewalks. That's what Birdland Jazzista Social Club is all about: eating all night with friends and neighbors, hanging out with friends and acquaintances all night, and listening to some cool music--three bands a night on Fridays and Saturdays, and decompressing on Chicken and waffles and Latin Jazz on lazy Sunday afternoons. Jazzista is a way of life. Jazzistas make life appear like the members are on permanent holiday.
Birdland Jazzista Social Club is where there's no jazz recession for those of you not in the know.
