Enter Jeff Slatnick’s Wonderful World of New-Fangled and Resurrected Instruments

Jeff Slat­nick has been the “guy in the store” over at Music Inn World Instru­ments for over 40 years, a land­mark music store in the West Vil­lage of NYC. When you step into the Music Inn, you’re step­ping into “a muse­um, rich with music his­to­ry from around the world.” You’ll encounter instru­ments from far-flung coun­tries, instru­ments that died out cen­turies ago, and new-fan­gled instru­ments designed for the hus­tle and bus­tle of today’s New York City. The short pro­file film above comes from NYork­ers, a series of shorts ded­i­cat­ed to fea­tur­ing “New York­ers that you don’t read about in head­lines…”

    Hel­lo Jef­frey,
    I’m your cousin from Den­ver, Mar­i­lyn Raff, for­mer­ly Lehrhoff. My moth­er was Ann Slat­nick. “I’m good friends with Lin­da Slat­nick. I love New York too and, after 35 years being away, I just vis­it­ed New York for 5 days in April and loved it!
    I love your video. I am art­sy, and paint, write, gar­den, lis­ten to music, make decoupage, and make jew­el­ry. My web­site is http://www.marilynraff.com
    Nice to meet you! Mar­i­lyn Raff
