Session/MasterClass Series, presented by Jazz in the Neighborhood in Collaboration with the California Jazz Conservatory. Additional Funding provided by the Zellerbach Foundation.
Performance by Kellye Gray Jazztet (Adam Shulman, Marcus Shelby, Greg Wyser-Pratt, Kellye Gray) from 7-7:30pm
The “masterclass” part of the performance will occur during the 7:30-8:30 time slot and will be conducted by Kellye Gray. Two “emerging artists” groups will share the hour and work with the house group in a public masterclass. The groups which should have the same instrumentation and musical approach as the house band will apply to Jazz in the Neighborhood. Applicants must have a recommendation from their teacher or coach and will be notified at least three weeks prior to their performance.
