Teaching at Creative Jazz Clinic Velenje 2019
What is becoming an already annual gathering of some of the most prominent and established jazz musicians and mentors in the world, the Creative Jazz Clinic Velenje 2019 created and curated by Jure Pukl took place between February 18 and 23rd. For 2nd year in a row, I was teaching counterpoint, harmony and composition in realm of my larger project “Tension and Texture” and had a pleasure of working with devoted and extremely talented students for an entire week.
To be in company of names such as Jeff “Tain” Watts, Han Bennink, Howard Curtis, Jure Pukl, Joe Sanders, Joel Ross, Jani Moder, Jonathan Kreisberg, Ben Van Gelder, Peter Evans, Melissa Aldana, Danny Grissett, Mike Janisch and Emilia Martensson and Miha Koren is needless to say an honour and a privilege. I thank Jure Pukl for inviting me in such company for 2nd year in a row. I hope to see you soon again!
