Musical Performances throughout the day, including renowned jazz performer DAVE BASS. In February 2015, Dave released NYC SESSIONS which soon hit #5 on the national JazzWeek Radio charts. NYC SESSIONS received a coveted 4-STAR review from Downbeat Magazine where Jon Garelick wrote that its “success is due in part to Bass’ savvy as an arranger and programmer, and also to his top-notch crew, not to mention his own sparkling keyboard work.”
Meet Stan Soocher, who will be signing his new book, "Baby You're a Rich Man: Suing the Beatles for Fun & Profit."
Part Beatles history, part legal thriller, Baby You're a Rich Man begins in the era when manager Brian Epstein opened the Pandora's box of rock 'n' roll merchandising, making a hash of the band's licensing and inviting multiple lawsuits in the United States and the United Kingdom.
In Baby You're a Rich Man, Stan Soocher ties the Beatles' ongoing legal troubles to some of their most enduring songs. What emerges is a stirring portrait of immense creative talent thriving under the pressures of ill will, harassment, and greed.
