Anton Schwartz

Anton Schwartz SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1:45 PM

This workshop for woodwind players explores how to make your phrases swing from a technical standpoint. Anton Schwartz presents different flavors of swinging, from down and dirty to light and nimble, and considers the various tools used to create them: rhythmic variation, accents, articulations and inflections. Participants listen to recorded examples and live demonstrations, and apply the ideas on their instruments. Also open to flutists and clarinetists. Bring your instrument (optional).

“Schwartz has everything you want to hear in a modern jazz saxophonist — an appealing, consistent tone, an abundance of ideas fueling both his compositions and his improvisations, and superb taste in musical collaborators.” — San Francisco Bay Guardian
