Matt Munisteri will celebrate the release of his new CD "Still Runnin' 'Round in The Wilderness - The Lost Music of Willard Robison Vol l". In the mid 1920's the pianist, singer, composer and arranger Willard Robison began recording a startling series of recordings of his own songs, and in the process became a prototype for that lasting American twentieth century artistic archetype; the singer-songwriter. And yet in the 8 decades which followed none of these unclassifiable recordings have ever been commercially re-issued. The guitarist, singer and songwriter Matt Munisteri has spent years tracking down these original recordings on 78 records and has now not only brought them to light, but has re-imagined them as a body of work rightfully freed from the trappings of era or idiom.

The consistently sold out, Happy Ending Music & Reading Series, chosen by New York Magazine and NY Press as the best reading series in NYC, and singled out by the New York Times Magazine for helping to "Keep downtown alive," features the most interesting storytellers, writers, musicians, raconteurs and personalities, and requires the readers to take one public risk, while the musicians, who perform two short sets with their original, lyric-driven music, are required to play one cover song and try to get the audience to sing along. Known for its consistently good taste, Happy Ending has launched careers and proudly, ended none.
