Ipswich Jazz Festival Workshop: Experimental Improvisation

This event is being held at Ipswich Town Hall, Cornhill, Ipswich. Purchase tickets below.

This event is part of ipswichjazzfestival.org.uk

A fun improvisation workshop suitable for all ages and musical abilities. The workshop is based on the teachings of John Stevens, one of the founders of the British free jazz movement from the early sixties. Activities will explore rhythm, sound colours, the use of silence, musical interaction, energy and structure. They are designed to be equally valuable to complete beginners as well as experienced improvisers. Beginners should have a basic command of their instrument but don’t need any knowledge of improvising. Experienced jazz musicians will get the opportunity to put aside their obsession with chords, scales and modes and focus on other equally important aspects of musicianship, while having fun at the same time!

Ian Buzer developed a passion for improvisation from an early age, having discovered jazz via the rock influenced sounds of Miles Davis in the 80s. Also heavily influenced by Chet Baker, Art Farmer and Tom Harrell, Ian has a spacious, laid back melodic style of playing. He currently plays in cool jazz quartet Morphology, the energetic big band Horn Factory and is a regular at many other local gigs and jam sessions.

This workshop is limited to 20 people.
