We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Gerry Niewood, Coleman Mellett, all the passengers and crew on flight 3407, and the poor innocent man who died in his own home. It is tragic and surreal.

The outpouring of phone calls, emails, text-messages etc is truly overwhelming. All I can say is, it’s too bad Gerry isn’t around to witness the impact he made on all of you.

I plan on getting back to all of you personally--but please understand the need to hunker-down with my family. I’m sure you all understand... There were over 1000 emails yesterday--the phone rings every minute. The voice-mail boxes full. ...overwhelming.

That said--Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, funny stories/anecdotes... etc. None of it goes overlooked or unappreciated.

I do not want anyone to feel badly or second guess reaching out--if you haven’t heard back--It’s simply b/c I’m trying to deal with the list of weird things... For example--trying to get my father’s car out of the Airport parking without a claim ticket? No one thinks they will have to drive through two parking lots full of at least 4000 cars looking for their Dad’s car...

This is all so hard to process--lots of pieces to pick up.

The memorial service is being planned (in addition a separate performance with music)--although nothing finalized as yet. News will go out as soon as we know more.

Thank you all for your support.

Sincerely on behalf of the whole Niewood family...

Your friend, Adam

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
