More cool stuff to do this summer–now’s the time of year when this news starts really piling up in my blog inbox. It’s from the International Society of Bassists E-Bass Line. You’re an ISB member, aren’t you? If not, join! Here’s the link.
Study and play with leading jazz bassists in the industry at Stanford Jazz Workshop’s jazz camp programs for youth and adults. SJW’s 2010 bass faculty include Larry Grenadier (Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau), Reuben Rogers (Joshua Redman, Dianne Reeves, Nicholas Payton), Harish Raghavan (Taylor Eigsti) and Ruth Davies (John Lee Hooker, Charles Brown, Elvin Bishop). Programs include Jazz Camp (youths age 12-17; July 18-23, July 25-30) and Jazz Residency (adults, plus advanced youth by audition, August 1-6). Private lessons, small ensemble performance opportunities, masterclasses and daily instruction in theory, ear training, musicianship and more. On campus housing available.
