On the 10th of May I attended the Norwich International Jazz Workshop and Creative Music Festival at the Norwich Maddermarket Theatre. This event was run by the Global Music Foundation and consisted of a series of interactive workshops and performances; featuring the quartet of legendary Alto Saxophonist Perico Sambeat (Brecker, Metheny, Rosenwinkel, Wheeler & Konitz) and singer - guitarist Guillermo Rozenthuler.
After a great day of workshops and performances there was an open jam in the theatre bar - with the Perico Sambeat quartet as the houseband. There was also a scholarship on offer, for an 18-25 year old to attend the GMF International Jazz Workshop in Tuscany. I was lucky enough to win this scholarship.
I've attached a couple of photos of me playing with Perico. I'm really looking forward to the summerschool, especially studying with the guitar tutor - a fabulous European guitarist called Libor Smoldas!
