The New Mexico Jazz Workshop (NMJW)
"The New Mexico Jazz Workshop is a non-profit organization that promotes Jazz Education and Performance."
The New Mexico Jazz Workshop (NMJW) is the oldest nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in the state, dedicated to the American improvisational art form known as Jazz. The NMJW is the premier Jazz presenting and education organization in New Mexico. Through concert presentations and educational programs for children and adults, the NMJW promotes awareness and appreciation for Jazz and fosters understanding between cultures. While the organization is committed to showcasing the best and very broadest interpretation of Jazz, it is also concerned with the creation of programming that is responsive to the unique regional and cultural aspects of New Mexico. This is accomplished by fostering a local music scene and collaborating with other community and artistic organizations.
Contributing to the quality of life in Albuquerque and the state for nearly 32 years, our organization plays a critical role in enhancing the cultural vitality that makes our state great. Over the past several years, the Jazz Workshop has grown to be one of the leading arts organizations in Albuquerque boasting an audience of over 25,000. Through four different annual concert series, we present a wide diversity of music including Jazz, Blues, and Afro-Cuban Salsa. Our concerts and assembly programs each year support local musicians and present the greatest names in Jazz, Blues, Afro-Cuban Salsa. We believe that teaching our children about this culturally diverse and uniquely American art form is imperative. The NMJW proudly offers education programs that reach 10,000 students throughout the state each year.

All classes are taught by the Outpost team comprising saxophonist, Kanoa Kaluhiwa; drummer, Sharon Eldridge; and trumpeter, Paul Gonzales. We aim to build positive attitudes, trust, teamwork, cooperation, confidence, compassion, and a sense of humor—everything you could ever want from music. Both Youth and Adults will perform a recital for family and friends at the end of their second session. It is expected that students will have their own instruments to bring to class. Outpost will provide a piano, a drumset, and guitar & bass amplifiers.

PAUL SLAUGHTER PHOTOGRAPHY FALL 2010
Hello Friends and Fellow Jazz Lovers,
I personally print my photographs with archival pigment
inks on Hahnemuhle rag paper, one of the most archival papers available. When framed under UV glass, prints will last over 100 years before any fading might occur, according to Wilhelm Imaging Research, the definitive authority on the longevity and preservation of inks and paper.
The average size of an actual printed image is 11.5 x
16.5 inches which is printed on archival 13 x19 inch
paper, and is presented in a 22 x 28 inch archival white matte. My collectors say the print presentation is absolutely stunning. A collector in Chicago has the “The Three Ladies of Jazz,” Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, and Nancy Wilson adorning their downtown condo.
For print orders and information please contact me
at: email@example.com or call 505-988-3179.
