With ANDREA VENEZIANI:
Jazz has no limitations, and it can’t be defined by a single artist or era. This Funk Fusion Workshop is tailored for musicians who want to explore and embrace the repertoire of the many great Funk-Fusion bands that further enriched the history of jazz in the 1970’s and 80’s.
Garnering inspiration and guidance from the music of Weather Report, Headhunters, Chick Corea Elektric Band, Brecker Brothers and many more, students learn the musical elements that made these bands so successful. In the Funk Fusion Workshop those elements are used to help them grow as musicians. Through group discussions and jam sessions, the workshop covers the importance of grooves, interplay, dynamics, improvisation and other aspects that make performing as a group such a satisfying experience. The Funk-Fusion workshop enhances awareness and knowledge of this modern era of jazz, while reinforcing fundamentals, pushing musical abilities and improving overall skill levels in a collaborative environment. Intermediate level.
