    SJW @ 50: Memories and Musical Moments

    7:30-9:30pm

    Dinkelspiel Auditorium, Stanford University
    471 Lagunita Dr, Stanford, CA 94305

    Since 1984 I've been either a student or on faculty at Stanford Jazz Workshop, the premiere jazz camp in the West.  I consider SJW my second home.  It's where I learned how to play and how to teach music and where I made many of the professional connections that still fuel my career.  This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the SJW with another great year of jazz camp, jazz residency and a fantastic festival of events.

    I'll be curating a night of stories and songs, music and memories.  Join us for a look back and a look forward at jazz and jazz education with an amazing group of friends and faculty.
