Jazz in Pune!
| Various articles | 2006-03-06
| Jazz Junction has been performing at Mumbai's Starters & More restaurant's hugely popular live jazz night on the first Wednesday of each month. Over the past two years the band has featured some accomplished international visiting jazz artistes, making it an event that''s looked forward to by an ever increasing number of patrons. |
Now Shisha Cafe, ABC Farms, Koregaon park is proud to host Jazz Junction on a regular basis on the first Friday of each month. The featured artiste for the 3rd of March is virtuoso saxophonist Julian Howison from the UK who is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London), Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester) and Berklee School of Music (Boston, USA). He is a regular visitor to India, spending a fortnight alternately in Mumbai and London.
Jazz Junction's tightly knit rhythm section made up of Lenny Heredia on keyboards, Colin D'Cruz on fretless bass and Rex Monsorate on drums has become an ideal platform for visiting soloists to showcase their talent. This works well for the band aswell as regular patrons get to hear them in a new avatar each month and the rhythm section has a blast experiencing different levels of improvising skills in every featured artiste.
