Limited-edition autographed Three Views box for your contribution to charity.
The end of a year is always a time to look around at some excellent nonprofits and charities that we can help. And when we were at Jazz Standard celebrating GPS with four different groups, we took the time to have all the musicians sign a few copies of the Three Views box set. We will be selling them and donating all the proceeds to charity. We’re suggesting a donation of $100 or more to any of these great causes. Below are some that were chosen by Dave, along with a few words about why they matter. If you are interested, or want to donate your purchase to a charity not on this list, please let us know.
Musician autographs: Dave Douglas, Donny McCaslin, Ravi Coltrane, Vijay Iyer, Tim Lefebvre, Mark Guiliana, Adam Benjamin, Linda Oh, EJ Strickland, Luis Bonilla, Vincent Chancey, Marcus Rojas, Rudy Royston, and all 4 members of So Percussion.
