Jamey Aebersold - One Final Note

If you haven’t heard what has been transpiring across social media and jazz conversations everywhere, the rumors have been confirmed. 2018, THIS SUMMER, will be Jamey’s final presentation of his world-famous Summer Jazz Workshops.

If you have never been to the workshops, now’s the time! Join us as we send Jamey Aebersold off into the sunset and help celebrate the importance of jazz education, in particular, these workshops that have helped so many aspiring jazz musicians and educators for over 50 years. These workshops have literally changed the lives of so many individuals and gave the world a deeper appreciation of jazz.

When Jamey took over the workshops more than 40 years ago from then director, Ken Morris, he transformed what was once a big band oriented camp into the combo workshops we know and love today. Jamey created an environment that has been unparalleled in the teaching of jazz and improvisation. The workshops are a place where you can overcome your fears, be surrounded by like-minded individuals, and live and breathe America’s art form.

For many of us, these workshops have grown to mean more than just a couple of weeks away from home. For some of us, it’s a way of life. Understanding what jazz is and what jazz means and music’s unmatched ability to become engrained in the hearts of people is more powerful than simply blowing a horn or banging a drum. Music is in all of us and the creativity today is the musical future of tomorrow.

What lies beyond the horizon? Only time will tell. Keep improvising … and we’ll see you this summer.

    The world of Jazz Music will not be the same without the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops.

    Alas, unable to attend this last Jamey-led workshop for date collision reason, just to testify that the 3 times I enrolled were a fascinating immersion into the best jazz can offer.

    Particularly heart-warming is the mix between, at least, 3 generations of enthusiastic players. And let’s not forget the 2 faculty concerts a day, worth the best of any jazz festival anywhere.

    Jamey, thanks and keep on swinging.

    I attended Jamey’s camp with my high school students on three separate occasions, including twice with my son who is now a professional drummer. It was such an inspiring experience for me, especially the camp where I was mentored by Prof. Rufus Reid. The camp gave me tools to use with my high school and middle school students and made a life-changing impact on my son. Jamey, I will miss your wonderful banjo playing and the way you have made a difference in the lives of so many young (and seasoned) musicians. God Bless You and keep swinging!
