Courtney Fadlin’s successful online concert series “Sax Interpretations” brings back the Ladies Edition on May 15th! Tune in through Facebook or YouTube to listen to an all female line-up from across the world, including my contribution from the United Kingdom.
Success Beyond The Score’s newest guest is Anna Brook, a professional saxophonist, international touring and recording artiste with the Brooklyn Funk Essentials and Joolz Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra. She is a music arranger, music director, music preparation specialist and singer. She is also a teacher at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Learn more about her in this first part of her interview.
Do you want a sax performance for your event? I can perform on site or virtually through a videocall or a livestream. To enquire, you just need to head to my booking page and fill a short form that will allow me to know exactly what you need.
All the episodes containing the interview I had with international operatic soprano Abigail Kelly are now available on YouTube and all your favourite podcast platforms.
Sammy Stein is an award-winning author, writer, journalist, and curator with a deep interest in the situation and role of female musicians on the industry. She reached out to me for one of her latest books, “In Their Own Words, Interviews With Women In Jazz” to have a conversation about my experience as a professional musician, both in terms of my music production and my community projects involving women in music.
How is 2021 treating you so far? I hope you are doing well! For me, these few weeks have been fast, full of work and learning, and I am pleased with the advance I have gotten with my projects and music.
Sammy Stein’s book ‘In Their Own Words’ was supposed to come out half a year before her other work, ‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz: A Discussion’, but the circumstances said otherwise and the two of them saw the light with only weeks of difference! Get it now on Amazon UK or 8th House Publishing.
Two of my projects were featured in Sammy Stein’s third book, which is called ‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz – A discussion’, and this one is already out and ready for you to pick a copy. You can find it in Kindle at Amazon UK or elsewhere at just £2.00 as an eBook, £15 as a paperback.
