U.S. Postal Service Is 'Stampin' at the Savoy - Jazz Appreciation Forever Stamp USPS

U.S. POSTAL SERVICE JAZZ APPRECIATION STAMP
Jazz Appreciation Forever Stamp Honors
America's Gift to Music. (U.S. Postal Service)
To celebrate America's musical gift to the world, the U.S. Postal Service today issued the Jazz Appreciation Forever Stamp.


Inspired by vintage jazz record-album covers, Pasadena, Calif., artist Paul Rogers captured the eclectic nature of jazz music and the spontaneity and improvisation of jazz artists in creating art for the Jazz Appreciation Forever Stamp.


"With this evocative Jazz stamp, we celebrate the music and the musicians who play it in studios, clubs and concert halls and on festival stages," said Thurgood Marshall Jr., vice chairman, Postal Service Board of Governors. "I can't think of a more perfect place to dedicate this new stamp than here in New Orleans, the birthplace of so many legendary jazz performers… and where jazz first flowered near the dawn of the 20th century.


"Jazz is a pastime that brings people together, regardless of race, ethnicity or background," said Marshall. "It's a lot like the Postal Service, which has been bringing people together for over 235 years, through the power of the mail."


Forever Stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce rate. The Jazz Appreciation stamps go on sale today nationwide at Post Offices and online at usps.com/shop.


Joining Marshall to dedicate the Jazz Appreciation Forever Stamp were Guy Cottrell, chief postal inspector; Nancy Marinovic, president, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation; Shamarr Allen, leader of the funk band Underdawgs; Jeffery Taylor, manager, Louisiana District, Postal Service; and Paul Rogers.

A-Z caught up with Weber last week to get an update on the the store, the vinyl scene in New Orleans, and his take on St. Louis from 677 miles down I-55.
Have you been pushing St. Louis bands at all at the shop?
I find myself recommending everything about St. Louis to everyone down here, to the point where I say 'St. Louis' and they look like they want to slap me in the face. The way people talk about New Orleans, I talk about St. Louis. St. Louis is tucked away--people don't know. The music scene in St. Louis has been well above average for the 10 and 11 years that I was involved in it, certainly in ways I don't see in other cities.

New Orleans Hotel Collection Announces Partnership with Unique New Festival in New Orleans

The New Orleans Hotel Collection has announced that the organizers of San Fermin in Nuevo Orleans festival (also known as the Running of the Bulls) have named the collection the official festival hotel sponsor. The Running of the Bulls, taking place in New Orleans July 7 – 10, 2011, is a recent addition to the burgeoning popularity of festivals in a city known for its spectacular events throughout the year. The seven hotels in the New Orleans Hotel Collection are in locations that provide superb and easy access to festival events and special hotel rates are available to the general public who wish to attend the festival.

Nola Bulls, LLC started the Running of the Bulls festival five years ago, which mimics the festival that has taken place for centuries in the town of Pamplona, Spain. Each year has seen phenomenal growth in the activities and participation, and this year’s festival offers visitors and locals a full cadre of events, including the centerpiece Saturday morning run with more than 300 “Rollerbulls” from leagues around the country. Visit www.nolabulls.com for complete schedule and information.

The uniqueness of this event begins with the unusual aspect of the “Rollerbulls,” when roller derby women from leagues across the country don “bull” outfits, and chase the red-sashed contestants through the streets of the old town, much like the real bulls in Pamplona. The events continue in the evening of the run with the Fiesta de Pantalones (Pants Party), and the following morning’s Pobre de Mi (Poor Me) at noon. A Hemingway contest is also planned.

Nola Bulls, LLC was founded in 2007 and is a provider and promoter of entertainment and cultural events in New Orleans. A portion of the proceeds from the festival will go to Animal Rescue New Orleans, an organization dedicated to the rescue of abandoned and homeless animals
