Join us on the stage of THE JAZZ ROOM for a workshop with Toronto-based bassist Artie Roch! The workshop will talk about the artistic process that led to his new release ‘Currently Experiencing’ and give everyone a chance to join in on the charts:
- Currently Experiencing
- Blues for all that is Left Unspoken (and the mp3)
- A Transient Space (and the mp3)
In addition to his active composer/band-leading and when he isn’t too busy racking up the JUNO awards, Artie holds the position of Bass Instructor at York University and is pursuing Classical Bass Studies through Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music.
“A lot depends on the style of jazz. You have to have a good sound and great time. Once you get there, you get to the other pieces like technical skill and solo ability. Ray Brown had it all and so did Paul Chambers – I’m sure they were fun to hang with.” – Artie Roth
This Saturday afternoon workshop will include a lecture/demo component geared to complement the evening show. In addition to the insights and examples of technique, participants have an opportunity to play along with the visiting professionals leading the workshops! The grand finale is a raffle for a one-hour Skype lesson with the leader of the workshop valued at $100!
Do I need to be a musician to attend? Should I bring an instrument? What’s the sound system like?
