Stanford University Jazz Songwriting Residency with Rebecca Martin, Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens

Posted on July 27, 2011 by lee

I’m spending the first part of August 2011 in the presence of greatness! I’m a big Gretchen Parlato fan, and I also really love the original works of Rebecca Martin and Becca Stevens. All three are receiving accolades right now both individually and collectively for their fresh new perspectives and contributions to jazz and genres outside jazz. It’s all getting pretty blurry these days.

I’ll be spending a week workshopping the craft of songwriting with these masterful ladies, and I can’t wait to see what ends up coming out of it.

With any luck, another album’s worth of material for my next project!
