Emile Charlap's contracting and copying office dominated the New York recording scene for decades. During that time, Emile's avocation was his personal "rehearsal" band (featuring himself on second trumpet), which gradually expanded from its original quintet format into a full twelve-piece ensemble. Rehearsing weekly for over 30 years, the group attracted many of New York's best musicians, and accumulated a repertoire of jazz arrangements by some of New York's finest.

Please join Manhatpro Director Roger Blanc (guitar), Manhatpro’s Mike Sayre (French Horn) and a renowned band of New York veterans: Joe Giorgianni, Tim Ouimette, Irv Grossman, Art Baron, Noah Bless, Joe Randazzo, Ted Petrosky, Kenny Ascher, Melissa Slocum and Mike Campenni.

Manhattan Producers Alliance Part of June 21 Make Music Day in New York City Events:

Manhattan Producers Alliance (Manhatpro) will once again partner with Make Music on Wednesday, June 21 as part of Make Music Day in New York City. Manhatpro’s event will take place at La Plaza De Las Americas, a public market and pedestrian plaza located on 175th St., between Broadway and Wadsworth Ave. in Manhattan’s Washington Heights.

They will create a temporary, open-air recording studio on an Upper Manhattan street corner. Manhatpro members will collaborate with residents and passersby to create and record spontaneous, original music.

Other small mobile recording studios will appear on sidewalks throughout NYC as part of this year's Make Music Day. These “Street Studios” will engage passersby and MMNY festival musicians in the spontaneous, collaborative production of original music. Each street studio will be run by a team of two DJ-engineers. These producers will spend a few hours recording, quick-mixing, looping, and playing back the live sounds, while interacting with the public who stop by to sing, play an instrument, or record sounds that become part of the musical track. The producers will then have two days to mix down one five-minute track to present at the “Street Studio Smackdown” party on June 23.

All Make Music Day events are free and open to the public. For more about Make Music Day, go to http://www.makemusicday.org

The Manhattan Producers Alliance is a cool place to be involved with. Adam's leadership, educational power and honesty strikes me most. Since attending the last webinar last week which gave me some new ideas how to promote and market my new CD release, I I have sold some T-shirts and CDs and made $400! I'm selling my CD as high-end product ($50.00) and in order to convince my fans to purchase my CD for that high price, I needed a comprehensive language which would inspire them to buy it. And how could I achieve that? Just by explaining and reminding them that music has value and is "made" for them. I promised them that my CD will soothe their hearts with meaningful music. It's a fact, we live now in a crazy time which needs "essential" music. Adam's advice helped me out to reach out to my fans and make them buy my CD. Thanks, Adam. In solidarity and music.
Can anyone recommend a a reliable tekkie?????😭
I'll be performing in a New York Composers Circle live jazz event this coming Wednesday, March 6, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Zinc Bar in NYC; performers will include the NYCC Jazz Quintet and Peri Mauer, and will feature all-original music by myself, Emiko Hayashi, David Picton, Michael Laderman, Dary John Mizelle, Tim Miller and Peri Mauer.
