Early this year Jazz&Jazz featured, courtesy of Trevor Stent (Leader of Brittany’s Good Time Jazz Band) “Jazz at School… A Homage to Catalonia” and “Fest Jazz” at Chateauneuf du Faou, Brittany.
Trevor has now updated Jazz&Jazz on the incredible progress being made with Jazz in School in Brittany and yet again we ask the question: “Why Not in the UK?”.
The song I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free is an important feature in the educational project, recounting the history of jazz and the struggle for human rights in the USA. It is also one of the most popular numbers at the school concerts organised by Trevor and Good Time Jazz.
“Fest Jazz” was also a huge success and 18 year old Andrea Motis gave a star performance.
