Episode Summary

The Pace Report: "Revive Da Live: Evolution Series"
The Revive Da Live Evolution Series has become a major staple in the national and international scene in jazz music. Spearheaded and organized by Meghan Stebile and musician Igmar Thomas of Revive Music Group, the weekly Tuesday night jam sessions bring rock, soul, jazz, and hip-hop musicians that come to tighten their musical skills, but also serve a platform for musicians to network as well as keep the legacy of jazz music alive.The Evolution series takes place at Creole Music and Supper Club in East Harlem. Club Manager and Director Kevin Walters stresses "this is where the music thrived during the early 1900's and music fans from all over the world are coming weekly to keep this music viable for the younger generation." Creole's diverse food menu along with drink specials are not only affordable, but offers some of the best soul and southern cuisine in New York City.Each week, Igmar hosts the jam sessions and generally asks musicians to sign in when arrive and wait until its their turn to take the bandstand. Each song isn't your typical "standard" or "ballad." Some musicians might playTribe's "Bonita Applebum" translated in a jazz-soul rendition or rock group Queen's "We Are Champions" in a funked-out version. The Evolution series is one of the best sessions in town because they stretch the music pallet beyond jazz. Plus, musicians can actually play instead of some of the more traditional jazz clubs in New York were they stress their brand name and charge music patons a hefty cover charge. Creole has been insturmental in bringing America's only artform in both a comfortable setting as well as back where the legends used to play and live.For more information on upcoming Revive Da Live events including the Evolution Series, visit them on Facebook or on the web at To find out directions to Creole Music and Supper Club, visit them on the web at creolenyc.commoreless
