Rio Sakairi: Cultivating a Small Space for Big Talent | Rio Sakairi: Cultivating a Small Space for Big Talent | -By Kari O’Hara Rio Sakairi hustles around the small studio in midtown, setting up chairs, moving furniture, preparing the performance space for the show that night. Furnished with an old sofa and some folding chairs facing the small stage, The Jazz Gallery is quiet and empty except for Sakairi, her six year old son and eight year old daughter playing in the around the chairs, and the two interns, men in their twenties who enter with acoustic guitars on their backs. As the artistic director, she runs the one room performance space on Broadway and 27th street almost single handedly. Though it is quiet during the day, three nights a week it turns into a nonprofit performance space bustling with musicians and an audience of Gallery members, who pay $75 a year for discounted tickets to all the shows, and visitors. Originally from Ibaraki, Japan, Sakairi was introduced to classical music at a young age.

Violinist, educator and composer Elektra Kurtis’s inspiration comes from Jazz and ethnic music of her heritage, as well as from Bartok, Stravinsky, Bach and more contemporary composers. Her goal is to integrate all the musical traditions and styles she has experienced throughout her life. She started, at home, in a family of Greek refugees from Egypt to Poland, learning about her Greek heritage. Elektra grew up in Warsaw listening mostly to avant-garde contemporary music created in the sixties and seventies and to Bartok, to Jazz recordings from the US and to the folk music of Greece, Africa and Tibet. Later, as a student of classical violin at the Sibelius Academy of Music in Helsinki, Finland, Elektra studied harmony, analysis and classical music forms along with classical violin repertoire.

NYC's Legendary Wetlands Preserve Rock Club Forced to Close Its Doors After Almost 13 Years (NY Rock) NYC's Legendary Wetlands Preserve Rock Club Forced to Close Its Doors After Almost 13 Years July 30, 2001 – Live music venue and activism center Wetlands Preserve will be turning out its environmentally friendly lights on September 15, 2001. After close to thirteen years at 161 Hudson Street in TriBeCa, the gentrification of the Manhattan loft set has caught up with the venerable club. The building is being sold and turned into residential condos and the venue is being converted into office and lobby space. Since opening on Valentine's Day in 1989, Wetlands achieved national prominence as the home of the burgeoning jam-band scene through the emergence of Dave Matthews Band, Phish, Blues Traveler, Widespread Panic, Spin Doctors, and the many other improv-oriented rockers who performed regularly at the venue in the '90s.
