Some observations just stay with you: “Dan, your quartet was the highlight of the festival for me”. That was the gist of an email I received in September 2010. The reason? Vince Ercolomento. I had invited Vince to front a quartet at the Lewiston Jazz Festival that summer, and as Vince and John Nyerges dug in and bared their collective soul, the crowd on the street just kept growing. Before too long we had a main stage audience at a side venue. It was amazing! And all because Vince only knows one way to play. He reaches back to his hard bop roots and his days as a student of the renown George Coleman, and he brings it. A huge sound, a relentlessly swinging concept, and an encyclopedic mind for tunes, Vince plays his horn like he’s living his last day. If Vince were an athlete, you’d have to put two men on him… So join us, please. We’re saving you the drive and bringing the Rochester School of Groove to the Iris. You'll find us at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst. Good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.

Studies are lining up showing that exercise - aerobic exercise, where you're huffing and puffing after 20 or 30 minutes - is neuroprotective. Chemicals released in the brain during exercise protect brain cells from dying, and patients who exercise do better long term.
