It is with great satisfaction that we see even more and more young musicians including jazz in their learning process. And this happens at an early stage. CCB has been a major driver of this recent trend by promoting projects such as the Big Band Junior and the Lisbon Jazz Summer School. In LJSS 4th edition the Holidays with Jazz continue its mission of stimulating a taste for jazz and improvisation among the youngest.
This year the Summer Course will have a different format compared to previous editions. 2012 LJSS offers musicians the opportunity to work for a week with Lawrence D "Butch" Morris. This charismatic American musician is the mentor of Conduction R, a practice of musical creation in the form of ensemble directed by a patented vocabulary of gestures. Once again, LJSS Summer Courses offers its participants an intensive contact with first class international musicians.
