Musical encounter with Douglas R. Ewart
A couple of pictures from last week's concert with the Brest conservatoire's jazz orchestra and Chicago musician Douglas R. Ewart. The concert took place on October 20th, it was part of the fantastic Atlantique Jazz Festival. The jazz orchestra at the conservatoire is led by two great jazz musicians: trumpeter Philippe Champion and saxophonist Krystian Sarrau.
Singer extraordinaire Zalie Bellacicco rendered the text beautifully
I was thrilled to share this musical moment with all of the musicians. Red Hills, the composition we performed, was inspired by mountains in Douglas Ewart's native Jamaica.
