Having just returned from Germany, and getting over my jet lag, I am now able to share my recent adventure about the Jazzahead conference in Bremen, and my performances with Fuasi Abdul Khaliq, an expat, saxophonist extraordinaire who lives in Berlin. Talent buyers and musicians from around the world gathered in Bremen from April 23-27, where I had a chance to present my artistry.
Me and my team made several meaningful contacts from Scotland, Austria, France, Slovenia, and Korea that we plan to pursue for upcoming music festivals in their respective countries, AND.... we had a chance to experience some of the wonderful musicians who performed at many of the showcases around town. I also got my fill of German food during those 4 days ( smile ).
After leaving Bremen we drove over to Hamburg for a couple of days of sightseeing, before heading east to Berlin where I performed with Fuasi Abdul Khaliq and his Ebony Big Band for International Jazz Day on April 30th.
