Almost a week after our return from the 2014 Jazz Education Network Conference, I’m still completely psyched about it. In my mind, JEN was the big nail-biter we’ve been working toward for the past several months. Since I’ve been in the group, GFT hasn’t been to anything like this. I was fortunate enough to go with Central Washington University’s Vocal Jazz I (which two other members of GFT were a part of) last year, and obviously it was a huge experience for us, and tons of fun. I had the opportunity to see some great performances/clinics, and to meet some phenomenal musicians.
I have to say, though… the vocal groups this year BLEW ME AWAY. From Christine Guter’s Pacific Standard Time (always fantastic) to one of the smoothest, most creative vocal jazz groups I’ve ever heard, Vertical Voices. Group after group after group, sooooo bangin’. To say that my time at JEN 2014 was inspiring would be an understatement…I am filled to the top with excitement for the vocal jazz world, and where it’s heading. I hope that I can make it to next year’s JEN conference, so that I can see more of these amazing vocal groups (they’ll probably have upped their game by then, too!).
It was great to see some familiar faces, and to make a bunch of new friends. I had a terrific time this year with all of you. Here’s to seeing everyone at JEN 2015!!!
