I will be creating one extra monthly show specifically for my patrons where I listen back to previous shows and chat about some key points that my guests bring up. There are so many great ideas and concepts that these amazing musicians bring up and I would like to share with you some of my favourites! This is great for beginner jazz violinists who want a little direction once in a while.
Baiju Bhatt is a Swiss/Indian violinist based in both Switzerland and Paris. He has his own original project 'Red Sun' with which he has toured Europe and the rest of the world. We had a nice long chat about all the things that come up when you play music for a living and I got a great insight into his development as a jazz musician.
The music at the start is Bhajus band 'Red Sun' playing his compostion - Pari Shokogun
The outro music is my band Latchepen playing Benny Golson's 'Whisper Not'
I feature British violinist Dom Ingham at the very end with with band 'Bonsai Tree' playing his composition 'Quay'
