2021 Upcoming Events
2021
March 1 Jazz in China documentary: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO),  sponsor of the annual April 30 International Jazz Day, has invited Dr. Eugene Marlow, producer/director of the forthcoming feature-length documentary “Jazz in China,” to announce the documentary’s completion on its website as an “official event” of International Jazz Day 2021. There are jazz performances all over the planet on this day.  International Jazz Day is chaired and led by UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who serves as a UNESCO Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue and Chairman of the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz
February 2 Composer Marlow/MEII Enterprises sign agreement with Dance In Frame Productions. Producer Michael Bishop of Brooklyn-based Dance In Frame Productions is developing a 30-minute documentary entitled “Shadows Among Us.” The documentary’s purpose is to raise awareness for a draft bill to be presented to the New York State legislature. This bill, if adopted, will act as a promise to artists and art organizations that the State of New York will do more to support the arts and culture sector should another disruptive event like the 2020-2021 pandemic occur again. The documentary will incorporate scenes with dance performers, interviews with them about the importance of art for society, and their hopes for its recovery following the end of the pandemic.  The documentary’s music underscore will be provided by composer and music producer Eugene Marlow from his 2006 album “Les Sentiments D’Amour” (MEII Enterprises).
