Back from Brazil

Jeané Gaines, a jazz singer and Northwest Vista College student, and our first Alamo Colleges Jazz Allstar, has just come home from a trip to São Paulo, Brazil that she will never forget. She's reached across cultures, made new friends--young and old--worked hard, and had herself quite a time.

Our video bar contains a few moments from the 2011 meeting of the International Association of Schools of Jazz (IASJ) at the Souza Lima Conservatory.

Be sure to watch the trailor for an upcoming documentary film on the IASJ by Israeli filmmaker Leon Segal, entitled "It's Not About the Music." It is about the music, of course, but it's much more than that, as you'll see. It's about collaboration, community, communication, and peace.

Stay tuned, and thanks for your support!
