Marafiki Fair Trade invites you to join us here at 20 New Street, Metuchen on Saturday, January 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. for the next event in Marafiki's American Artists Series - a show featuring the fine art jazz prints and tribal sculpture of  artist Easton Davy.  Meet Easton, have some complimentary wine and cheese, and enjoy live jazz performed by Metuchen's own David Grossman!

Easton Davy's jazz artworks have been collected all over the world for the past 15 years. Easton Davy is also known for his 'live painting' improvisations during jazz performances.  In 2004 Davy was present at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland to do a live painting with the Greg Osby Quartet during their Blue Note Records jazz performance. Later he painted live acts during events like The Dutch NuMoon Festival and the Rotterdam Museum Night. He also creates jazz CD covers for Blue Note Records (some of which will be available for sale), and various European jazz labels.

David Grossman has been playing in the New York Metropolitan area since the early 1980s. After studying both classical and jazz guitar (at Sarah Lawrence College and Mannes College of Music), David began playing the clubs and private parties of New York City, accompanying cabaret singers at The Duplex, 88s and Don't Tell Mama, and playing Jazz with instrumental groups at The Village Gate, The Knitting Factory, CBGB's Gallery and The Kitchen. David has appeared on TV (most notably, in an episode of the sitcom Kate and Allie) and sang on an album cut of New Order. He's shared bills with jazz greats such as Jim Hall and Joe Puma and recorded with legendary rock guitarist Page Hamilton of Helmet. David is currently writing the score for the film thriller "Cathedral Canyon" and playing cool jazz for discerning listeners throughout the region.

Don't miss this exciting event - we are looking forward to seeing you there!
