Every once in a while, it is good to stop and look back at the progress you have made. You can evaluate your previous steps, thank the people who have helped you get where you are, and plan and prepare for the future. It is also a good time to update our supporters with what we have planned for the upcoming weeks and beyond.
I’ll start by saying that I love our blog, simple and plain. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and perspectives on music with the readers, and I am glad to share the infinite musical connection to Roy Ayers. I have learned so much about so many artists in doing my research, as well as learning from other contributors on our site, and even commenters have had great input. Our traffic has steadily grown, and I never imagined the site to be as successful as it is today. With that being said, my time with the blog sometimes compromises my work with the overall brand of the Roy Ayers Project, so finding a balance between the website and the documentary is a challenge. In other words, if the blog misses a few days, it just means that we’re working on other things, so forgive us! One of those things we’ve been fine tuning is our newest website devoted to the Roy Ayers Project documentary.
Allow us to introduce royayersproject.com/film.
In addition to building our new site, we have also planning a couple of screening events. On Wednesday, October 24th, we will be teaming up with the Fillmore’s very own Jazz Heritage Center to showcase a preview of the focal point of the Roy Ayers Project, the Roy Ayers Documentary. This is the very first time that this extended trailer will be shown, so it is a historical moment for the 70|30 team. You can learn more about the San Francisco Private screening here, as well as RSVP.
Along with the private screening in San Francisco, we will be doing a public screening in New York City on November 1st at the Counting Room in Brooklyn. This will be the first time that we invite the public to view what we have, so it will also be a special evening for the crew, as well as the community of Brooklyn.
There will be more info in the coming days about this event.
In closing, I personally want to thank everyone who has supported and followed the Roy Ayers Project, and we will continue to preserve, present, and celebrate the life and philosophy of Roy Ayers, as well as his contemporaries.
Creator of the Roy Ayers Project
