Fresh off the road from a sold out 15 date tour, Mickey Hart fans can tune in to the first in a series of videos featuring Mickey with director/filmmaker George Lucas telling stories of their work together, the importance of sound in film, and the power of music.

“Episode One" finds George & Mickey “Back the Big Room" at Lucas' Skywalker Ranch where Hart recorded the Gyuto Monks Tantric Choir and the Dzintars Latvian Choir. These titles were recently re-released as part of the Mickey Hart Collection on Smithsonian Folkways in October, 2011.

The Mickey Hart Band will be back on the road in January for a short run of East Coast and West Coast dates. Hart and producer Ben Yonas (Zion I, Jazz Mafia) are currently finishing up his next solo album, slated for a Spring 2012 release. Fans will continue to get a sneak peaks of the new tunes at upcoming shows.

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.
