  1. Congratulations for "Jazz Night in Paris", Jean-Francois and Dudley jazz afficionados. Makes me want to return as an alumnus to join you onstage with Jabulani when you return to Cambridge one day. Any web video of the event?

  3. Thanks for the message! Unfortunately, we do not have a video of the night. Jabulani should have received the link to all of the audio recordings, though. At some point, I'm going to post a slideshow from our December concert with Duke Ellington's arrangement of Rhapsody in Blue... should be there before July. Thanks again!
