My experience at the two week, Mission Jazz Workshops in Santa Fe and Santa Barbara with Winnie Swalley were unlike any other musical opportunities I've had. I collaborated with top musicians from around the globe composing and performing exciting and innovative music at the hippest venues. Aside from the aurally-titillating music and stimulating classes, the hang was always "one for the books".
