On Thursday, the 16th of August Gary, Skip, and I will fly out of Newark International Airport aboard a Scandinavian Air jet for Copenhagen and then take another that will take us to Prague.
I am looking forward to seeing friends that I made last year and to revisit Prague and Frydlant. Last year Gary and I were very impressed by the level of msuicianship of the other instructors at the Karel Velebny Jazz Workshop in Frydlant. They played at an extremely high level and were very welcoming to the two musicians from America.
The students were also very accomodating and enthusiastic. Fortunately, the students that signed up for the group that Gary amd I co-led last year could speak some English. I also have been trying to learn some basic Czech vocabulary and useful phrases.
I have also included some photos from last year.
Talk to you soon!
