BRAZIL: Natal – June 2011

I am fortunate to have had many outstanding students who are helping to spread the work of jazz throughout the world.  Anderson Pessoa is one of those incredible students, an excellent educator, performer, composer and arranger.  Anderson recently accepted a position as director of Jazz and Popular Music at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) and invited me to work with his students and to play with him and his faculty.  My first and hopefully not last visit to Natal.
