The final education Residency of Jazz St. Louis’s 2012-13 season begins Monday, April 1, and while each Residency is unique, this one is not to be missed! Featuring three of the world’s top trumpet players, this Residency brings together the amazing talents of Jon Faddis, Terell Stafford, and Sean Jones.
One of the most important aspects of Jazz St. Louis’s Residency program is the work that takes place during the day with local students. During the week (April 1-5), this trio will participate in nearly 30 concerts, clinics, and master classes at area high schools, middle schools, and universities. This level of impact is rare and not seen in many other areas of the country.
On the weekend, you can check out this super-group (known as the Triumph of Trumpets) on the Jazz at the Bistro stage both Friday (4/5) and Saturday (4/6) nights with sets at 7.30 and 9.30 pm. For the Bistro performances, they will be joined by pianist Adaron “Pops” Jackson’s trio, which features Jahmal Nichols (bass) and Marty Morrison (drums). For more information, click HERE.
