An interesting partnership this summer between a music venue and a private school has resulted in a summer jazz program for tween and teen jazz musicians.

Howard Berkson, owner of the food and music club Anthology here in San Diego, got the idea last year for a jazz institute and, with the help of San Diego trumpeter and educator Derek Cannon, put together a great music faculty, outlined a curriculum and set up a whole jazz program. Local top-shelf musicians were enlisted as the teaching staff, most or all of whom are music educators as well. Iā€™m talking about ā€” in addition to Cannon ā€” Mike Holguin, Justin and Melonie Grinnell, Danny Green, Steve and Ella Steinberg, Andy Geib and Tommy Collins. In addition to these instrumentalists, Melonie Grinnell and Leonard Patton took charge of the two jazz singing groups.

Sara Gazarek on The New Jazz Thing Monday July 23 2012
Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: July 19, 2012
Vocalist Sara Gazarek chats LIVE about her new 2012 release "Blossom and Bee", her July 26, 2012 performance at Anthology SD, and more on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, July 23, 2012, 6-8 PM PT!  Just to tempt you...hehe...Dan Bilawsky in AllAboutJazz.com says: "While it's a bit clichéd to say that a collection of songs can make you fall in love with a singer, the shoe fits here. Gazarek balances fancy free notions, effervescence, carefree whims, fragile emotions, precocious pondering and humor in her work, making this a highly attractive outing as a whole." Not bad ;)
