Jazz Clinics for Local and Student Musicians

Jazz students and community musicians will have two unparalleled opportunities to participate directly with jazz artists in jazz clinics this year. Two workshops have been scheduled during the festival, one with drummer Jeff Hamilton at 3:30 p.m.  Friday, Sept. 30 at Newport High School and one with pianist and educator Tamir Hendelman at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Newport Performing Arts Center.  
 
Both will discuss the jazz art form and demonstrate techniques. Everyone applying for the workshop will participate and be given a focus to consider. The artist(s) will then work with the participants as a group in learning the techniques involved. The participant fee for each clinic is $15 per adult, $10 per student. 
 
Richmond, Indiana-born Hamilton grew up with jazz, and has received rave reviews for his dynamic drumming. Award-winning pianist Hendelman was born in Tel Aviv, and has performed with many greats since he arrived in the United States.

'All That Jazz' panel discussion

Renowned trumpet-player and educator Terell Stafford is one of four guests at the interactive jazz panel on Saturday.Everyone's invited to an interactive question-and-answer session about jazz, jazz artists, the future of the music and all the things you always wanted to know about our favorite American art form! The panel features Jazz at Newport Music Director and renowned jazz flutist Holly Hofmann, bassist and jazz vocalist Kristin Korb, drummer Jeff Hamilton, and trumpeter Terell Stafford, at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Newport Performing Arts Center. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Hofmann is the panel moderator. When Holly isn’t touring the globe she makes her home in San Diego, Calif. where she’s enjoyed a long association with pianist Mike Wofford and bassist Bob Magnusson. Hamilton has enjoyed a long career of accolades and awards, as leader of the Jeff Hamilton Trio, which also includes bassist Christoph Luty and pianist Tamir Hendelman. 
 
Korb is not just a singing bassist. She is a premier singer with a personal approach and a deep sense of swing, receiving critical acclaim for her arrangements of jazz standards both in performance and on recordings. Hailed as “one of the great players of our time, a fabulous trumpet player” by piano legend McCoy Tyner, Stafford currently holds the positions of professor of music and director of jazz studies at Temple University.
