Jazz Camp & Jazz Residency Programs Start This Month - Spaces Still Available

Tia FullerStanford Jazz Workshop is world-renowned for the quality of its instruction and the personal attention that each participant receives. We're very excited about our Jazz Camp faculty, including acclaimed New Orleans saxophonist Donald Harrison, drummers Tootie Heath, Matt Wilson, and Ndugu Chancler, vocalist Sandy Cressman, pianists Taylor Eigsti, Jeb Patton and Joe Gilman, and bassist Ruth Davies, just to name a very few. Other instructors include Seward McCain (bass), Frank Sumares (piano), Kris Strom (saxophone), David Yamasaki (guitar), Andrew Speight (saxophone), and Victor Lin (strings). Jazz Camp is for students ages 12-17, beginning to advanced.

Jazz Residency (for adults and advanced students) faculty will again feature a wide spectrum of jazz talent, from legendary figures such as saxophonist Jimmy Heath and drummer Louis Hayes to rising young stars like pianist Taylor Eigsti and guitarist Julian Lage.

Space is still available in both our Jazz Camp & Jazz Residency programs.

Read about Bobbe Norris in June 21 issue of the San Francisco Chronicle's Datebook -- Artist website

“She reaches into a lyric like she's pulling taffy and brings out the sweetness and rich flavor of each song, discarding anything superfluous or sticky.”– Rex Reed

Bobbe NorrisThe right pairing of an expressive singer and a sensitive accompanist can reveal every facet of a song’s beauty, from the drama of a great lyric to the allure of a compelling harmony. Bobbe Norris’s smoky contralto and patient phrasing imbue every song she performs with character and feeling. Her husband and long-time accompanist Larry Dunlap complements her sound with almost telepathic empathy. Their interpretations of beloved standards and obscure gems are rich in nuance and spellbindingly communicative. San Francisco native Norris, who celebrates her 70th birthday with this performance, has the comfortable individuality and seemingly effortless musicality of a veteran who has never stopped learning throughout a long and storied career. Dunlap, an exceptionally tasteful and versatile pianist, has played and served as an arranger and musical director for countless world-class artists including Cleo Laine, Joe Williams, and Gerry Mulligan. His outstanding trio includes some of the finest musicians in the Bay Area: drummer Jason Lewis and bassist Dan Feiszli. Photo Credit, Chuck Gee.

Frank SinatraThe popular songs of Broadway and Tin Pan Alley in the 1930s and 40s are a huge part of any jazz musician’s repertoire, and nobody sang these timeless melodies and witty, urbane lyrics better than Frank Sinatra. With impeccable timing, a mellifluous voice, and boundless charisma, Sinatra came to personify the sophistication and style of the music we now call the Great American Songbook—the same tunes that provided the launching point for the daring improvisations of bebop artists like Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk. Although they might seem to occupy different ends of the jazz spectrum, modern jazz pioneers from Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins to Joe Lovano and John Zorn have acknowledged Sinatra as a major influence. The Stanford Jazz Festival’s tribute to the life and music of Ol' Blue Eyes features an extraordinary group of musicians who honor the legacy of Sinatra’s golden age while carrying it into the future: trombonist/vocalist Danny Grewen, multi-reed master Jim Rothermel, saxophonist Noel Jewkes, pianist Larry Dunlap, bassist Seward McCain, and drummer David Rokeach.
