We returned from France, via L.A., early in June, after a fascinating and rewarding experience in cultural exchange.
Click to see the mini-documentary about the Cultural Exchange between myself, producer-composer Candace Forest and Lille-France-based bassist-composer Albin Suffys, the organizations and the people that supported the cultural exchange, and the products of the exchange: A live concert with French and American musicians, a master class on the Great American Songbook, and the world premiere of a new musical piece. All live footage shot in May 2010, from the master class, a radio interview, the concert in Lille and Lomme, France.
