Fondazione Siena Jazz Summer Workshop 2013
Playing with world-class jazz musicians and peers, and being exposed to instruction that allowed them to move to the next level in their growth as jazz musiciansregardless of the level on which they currently residedit became clear that few (if any) contemporaries exist to match the Fondazione Siena Jazz. As the Summer Workshop celebrated the 43rd program in the Fondazione's 36 years, despite the changing landscape of the music industryand naysayers notwithstandingthe future of jazz, indeed, looks absolutely bright and secure.
