Jazz players do special workshop, concert in White Rock

WHITE ROCK — Three giants of the jazz world will stage a daytime workshop and evening concert in White Rock next week.

Guitarists John Stowell and Oliver Gannon, along with bassist Jodi Proznick, will be the focus of the events on Friday, May 8 at Blue Frog Studios.

The afternoon workshop will run from 3 to 5 p.m., followed by an 8 p.m. concert at the Johnston Road venue.

“Students, professionals and jazz lovers will appreciate attending the daytime workshop, the evening concert, or both events,” studio operators said in an advisory.

Workshop attendees will receive a 50-page PDF file with an article written by Stowell for various magazines. The content includes original tunes from Stowell, applications of melodic minor and triads to build solo lines, voicings and chord melodies. “All levels are welcome to attend but intermediate to advanced topics will be covered.”
