Joe Thompson's Family Jazz - November 27th
Sun 27 November 2016, 16:00 – 17:00 GMT
This informal session is all about the music. Bring your young ones along for a great introduction to live music, as Joe and his fellow musicians play you the best in jazz and show you how it’s done – just like they’ve done at The Ivy Club the night before!
Perfect for aspiring young musicians, or families who want some quality musical time together. This really is some of the best jazz in town, and when you pair it with an espresso from our café, makes for the hippest family scene around.
Calling all brass instrumentalists! Blackheath resident Mark Armstrong is the musical director of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra as well as Professor of Jazz at the Royal College of Music a well as a phenomenal trumpet player.
On 27th November 2016 Mark will be sharing his passion for the coolest instrument in jazz with the young people of Blackheath and encouraging them to pick up an instrument and get practising. Accompanied by Joe Thompson on piano and Robert Rickenberg on double bass, Mark will be demonstrating different styles and sounds using the trumpet, the flugelhorn and an array of mutes. It will literally be… a blast!
