    Lynne Arriale’s music lies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She is one of jazzdom’s most intensely unique voices. – JazzTimes 

                               Pianist/composer Lynne Arriale’s career is graced by a love of melody and a joy of musical discovery. Arriale has performed on international concert and festival stages over the past 25 years. The consummate storyteller, she immediately connects with her listeners. JazzTimes wrote, “She achieves a special, deep connection with her audience, and the energy flows both ways. Arriale’s emotional authenticity allows her audience to feel and think along with her.”

    At the core of Arriale’s appeal is her ability to communicate with her band and listeners. “The poet laureate of her generation” (Jazz Police), her performances and recordings with her trio have led to comparisons with the great trios of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, yet she has been consistently praised as having a “singular voice” as a pianist, leader, composer, and arranger. “I really can’t compare her to anyone,” said recent collaborator and multi-Grammy winner Randy Brecker. “Her music transcends the word ‘jazz’ – it is just pure music.”

    Arriale was the first prize winner of the 1993 International Great American Jazz Piano Competition, and soon launched her touring and recording career. Her 14 CDs as a leader have topped the Jazzweek Radio Charts.

    She was selected to substitute for Marian McPartland with the 100 Golden Fingers tour of Japan with iconic jazz pianists Tommy Flanagan, Hank Jones, Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton, Kenny Barron, Harold Mabern, Roger Kellaway, Junior Mance and Ray Bryant. Arriale has performed and/or recorded with jazz icons Randy Brecker, George Mraz, Benny Golson, Rufus Reid and Marian McPartland, to name a few.

    The world’s great jazz festivals and concert stages have invited Lynne to perform, including five performances at the Kennedy Center and additional performances at Lincoln Center, Montreux, Burghausen, Gilmore, Spoleto Arts, Montreal, Monterey, North Sea, Stuttgart, Pori, San Francisco, Ottawa, Zagreb, Perth, Brisbane, Rouen, Cannes MIDEM, Sardinia, Rochester, Wigan, Poznan, Estoril, Palermo, Inverness, Cork and San Javier.

    Darek Oleszkiewicz

    During his illustrious career, bassist, Darek Oleszkiewicz has performed and recorded with the greatest masters in jazz, including such artists as Brad Mehldau, Billy Higgins, Pat Metheny, Joe Lovano, Eddie Henderson, Charles Lloyd and John Abercrombie. He has recorded approximately 100 albums and performed throughout America, Europe and Asia. Several of those recordings were nominated for Grammy Awards. You may have heard Darek in the past at the Sequoia Room and know how outstanding he is!

     Lewis Nash

    Drummer, Lewis Nash  has been called “the most talented drummer of his generation” by Ira Gitler (The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz) and was named Jazz’s Most Valuable Player by Modern Drummer magazine in May 2009.  He is one of the most in demand drummers in the world, with one of the longest discographies in jazz, having played on over 400 records. He has performed and recorded with jazz masters including Tommy Flanagan, Ron Carter, Joe Lovano, McCoy Tyner, Cedar Walton and Dizzy Gillespie.

    This is the first time Lewis has performed at the Sequoia Room; he is truly one of the world’s iconic drummers—don’t miss this opportunity to hear him!

    Current Health Order

    Summary of Changes: Updated Stage 3 Health Officer Order Shelter-In-Place Effective 3:00 p.m., June 19, 2020, Until 3:00 p.m., July 3, 2020

    As the State and Counties (with Variances) move further into Stage 3, this week the State released a new Guidance for Personal Care Services, for reopening in Variance Counties no sooner than June 19, 2020. Consistent with that release, the Health Officer, issues an Updated Stage 3 Shelter-in-Place Order (SIP) to become effective 3:00 p.m. June 19, through 3:00 p.m., July 3, 2020. In addition, the Order was revised to account for the newly issued Order effective June 18, 2020, broadly requiring facial coverings statewide when in public or common spaces and which will apply to all industries (and all Guidances to be updated.) (Read more on that here).

    In addition to these central changes to the Order, the Health Officer made some revisions to clarify the additional areas of the SIP.


    Personal Care Services
    The Health Officer updated the Stage 3 Order to re-open Personal Care Services, defined by as: (1) personal care that requires touching a client’s face or body, e.g., facials, electrolysis, and waxing; (2) esthetician, skin care, and cosmetology services; (3) electrology; (4) nail salons, body art professionals, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops; (5) and massage therapy (in non-healthcare settings). This varied sector may re-open with strict adherence to the COVID-19 Industry Guidance: Expanded Personal Care Services (https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/expanded-personal-services.pdf), and with special attention to the “Additional Considerations” for each particular field. Central to that Guidance is the statewide requirement that workers must wear a face covering throughout the entire interaction with the customer; customers must wear face coverings at all times while in the facility, except when the face covering must be removed for the performance of services involving that part of the face; facilities should provide clean face coverings for all staff and make them available to customers, if possible; and workers should wear disposable gloves (except in body massage services). Additionally, the Guidance provides details regarding cleaning and disinfection of particular accoutrements and utensils such as tweezers, scissors, electrical implements, esthetic devices, linens, wax pots, and pedicure bowls. The Health Officer also encourages personal care service businesses to take additional measures to protect the workers from exposure, such as installing plexiglass screens, and wearing face shields, which may provide additional protection to workers performing services which involve touching a client’s face.

    As with all Permissible Higher Risk Businesses, before reopening, all Personal Care Services businesses must to file their Safe Business Reopening Plan (addressing the requirements of the State Industry Guidances) with their local self-certification form, which will be accessible for the public to view online at https://www.mendocinocountybusiness.org.

    Revisions Related to K-12Schools and Early Childhood Education
    The Updated Stage 3 Order provides an exemption to the self-certification requirement for Schools and School-based programs, and clarifies that guidelines for Childcare and other programs do not apply to public and private schools, early childhood education, and K-12 schools, which must instead follow the applicable (currently interim) State Guidelines for Schools and School-Based Programs 1 (https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-schools.pdf) . The State through this recently released guidance has made clear that the guidelines and considerations do not reflect the full scope of issues that school communities will need to address, which range from day-to-day site-based logistics to the social and emotional well-being of students and staff. Further state guidance is forthcoming, including on school- based sports and extracurricular activities. The Order clarifies there is no requirement that an individual local school’s COVID-19 plan be specifically approved by the Health Officer. Each Industry Reopened By Statewide Guidance Is Permitted Even if Not Specifically Mentioned In SIP The Health Officer Updated Stage 3 Order clarifies for those industries which have been re-opened by the State per Industry Guidance but are not specifically referenced in the local Health Officer’s Orders, their re-opening is permitted by the Health Officer in accordance with the State’s Guidance. All businesses are responsible for regularly reviewing the State website to determine any changes or restrictions that may be issued by the State for their particular industry, i.e., open sectors in counties with variances (https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap-counties/), and industry-specific guidances statewide (https://covid19.ca.gov/industry-guidance/) For example, Music, TV and film production may resume throughout California, including within Mendocino County, per the statewide guidance.

    Revisions to Transient Lodging
    Recognizing that some households include extended family in one household, the Updated Stage 3 Order is revised to state each room, unit, or Vacation Rental (regardless of size) may only be occupied by no more than one household or living unit, including up to no more than 4 adults and the children of that single household or living unit. Additionally, the Health Officer clarifies the purpose for the 24 hour vacancy between each separate occupancy (48 hours for Vacation Rentals), to allow thorough cleaning in a safe manner and disinfection between each re-occupancy. In the case of Vacation Rentals, the extra buffer is also needed for the extended stay of guests in the event of isolation or quarantine due to COVID- 19. The Order also clarifies that public saunas, steam rooms and hot tubs should remain closed in any transient lodging establishment. However, private hot tubs in such establishments, for use by only one household are permitted, provided that they are drained and cleaned in between each reservation’s use.

    Additional Revisions to SIP
    In accordance with recent revisions by the State, the Health Officer has clarified that outdoor religious services and protests do not have a specific attendee capacity limit. Additionally, the inside capacity limit, i.e., 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower is still in effect. All other restrictions for these activities remain. Public pools and shared pools have been revised to permit pool-based physical therapy or exercise (as recommended for health reasons) for up to 12 individuals at one time per pool, with all individuals maintaining at least six feet physical distance from each other (and following the additional requirements in the order).

    Finally, while the current Order expires at 3:00 p.m. on July 3, 2020, a revised order will be released at the expiration of this Order.
