The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) has announced an exclusive interactive masterclass with Janek Gwizdala and featuring Jojo Mayer on drums. This fantastic, one-off event will take place on Thursday 9 April 2009 at the Luminaire venue in London and is the prelude to Janek´s European Spring tour (in association with www.ArtOnEarth.com) which commences on the same day at Charlie Wright´s International Bar in London.
Janek, a member of the ICMP´s visiting faculty and a rapidly rising star in the world of bass guitar, has brought together a trio of some of the most cutting edge musicians in New York City - Jojo Mayer (drums), Oli Rockberger (keys and vocals), and long-time collaborator Audun Waage of Norway on trumpet. Having worked individually as sidemen with the likes of Mike Stern, Randy Brecker, Branford Marsalis, Pat Metheny, Dizzy Gillespie, Meshell N´degeocello,and many more, these four musicians come together to play original instrumental and vocal material, including music from "live at the 55bar", Janek´s latest release.
A limited number of tickets for this event are available for the general public, so don´t miss this opportunity to get up close and personal with four of the finest musicians around. The 2-hour event will commence at 3:30pm on Thursday 9 April at the Luminaire venue in Kilburn, London
