Only a couple of days away from this year’s IASJ Jazz Meeting and we are very much looking forward to the events and the meeting. We hope that our A-JAM student representative Odie Wallace will have a great time meeting fellow musicians, students, teachers and representatives from schools all over the world.
Our Danish hosts have done their best to unfold a wonderful and inspiring artistic program, starting with a great concert evening on the 29th of June in Herning. The evening starts with Kadri Voorand Group followed by Dave Liebman with a saxophone quartet and the string quartet called Who Killed Bambi. It will be a great evening.
In Aarhus we will attend a fantastic concert with Blood Sweat Drum+ Bass, Dave Liebman, Palle Mikkelborg, Carsten Dahl and Ensemble MidtVest. This concert will be streamed live! Feel free to spread the links so that your friends will be able to follow this great event.

Program host JJ Lopez interviews St Phillip's College singer Bianca Johnson, Northwest Vista College bassist Odie Wallace, and Trinity University drummer Ben Whitehead. Richard Oppenheim and Katchie Cartwright sit in on alto saxophone and piano respectively.
They perform several of the IASJ Top 10 tunes and discuss the A-JAM program, their mentorship experiences, and what lies ahead. Many thanks to KRTU for documenting our program on this third annual A-JAM broadcast of the South Texas Jazz Project!
