Screen Shot 2015-11-04 at 8.15.18 PMMany of you know Tom and Emily have been working with some amazing musicians in the Los Angeles area for years. Many of these players share deep connections to the Leimert Park cultural region of Los Angeles and the local jazz and improvised music scene of LA. The name of the group, The Gathering, was inspired by a cultural center not far from Leimert Park. On Nov. 5th we launch our Kickstarter campaign, which is do or die as to whether the funding succeeds, and they really need all the help they can get to succeed. There are several ways to help. This is a virtual event that anyone can attend by joining and helping in the following ways:
