Back in the days of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and John Coltrane, jazz musicians learned their craft by playing in small groups led by the best musicians around. Nowadays, if you want to learn to play jazz, you go to college and study it there: the same way it works in the classical world.
But, a new summer jazz camp in Vancouver offers the best of both worlds. Jody Proznick - the Juno nominated bassist - runs the show at the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music Summer Jazz Workshop. Her program offers the opportunity for students to learn jazz in small combos, under the instruction of renowned artists such as Bill Coon, Brad Turner and Steve Maddock.
Hear more about the program, along with some of the students swingin' sounds, at 7:40 on Sunday morning.
