Spring Performances and News

Here's a nice article that the Edmonds Beacon ran last week prior to my performance at the Edmonds Library.   The concert went great and featured Milo Petersen (guitar), Brad Boal (drums) and current student Rodney Ocfemia (bass).  

The EWHS Trip to Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival was a great success. In addition to our students winning the Sweepstakes Award for the first time (including a free Ludwig Drum Set with Zildjan Cymbals), I also enjoyed getting to adjudicate the elementary and middle school jazz choirs. 

Winners included Jazz Ensemble I and II, Top Combo, Outstanding Baritone Sax Kyle Bainbridge, Outstanding Vocalists Dominic Nye and Unathi Machyo. 

Here's a video montage of our excursion.
