Bernstein and Beyond - Herts Youth Jazz Ensemble
As a notable jazz educator (currently on staff at Birmingham Conservatoire and author of a celebrated jazz drum method) as well as a talent spotter par excellence, it's small wonder that Clark Tracey ensures that each year Herts Jazz's festival features young up and coming talent. Indeed, the Herts Youth Jazz Ensemble is now something of a festival fixture, and deservedly so. Having played at venues including the Royal Albert Hall, and been tutored by musicians including Django Bates and Mark Armstrong, they're clearly more than capable of holding their own in high company. Under the expert leadership of Duncan Fraser, today's programme does exactly what it says on the tin – offering a performance that takes in imaginative jazz re-workings of Leonard Bernstein and others.
Please note that this is a FREE concert. All welcome!
