Jazz in Barbados February 22 – 28, 2013

“Jazz is in the moment, and it’s non-judgmental; when you’re playing on the stage you’re not judging what the other musician plays. What you have in mind is to enhance it –whatever a musician plays your job and your desire is to help it to blossom . . .” Herbie Hancock – American pianist, keyboardist, bandleader and composer.
