The Cambridge Jazz Project at Sidney Sussex College and Anglia Ruskin University will be running A Jazz Workshop with Clark Tracey and Arnie Somogyi at Anglia Ruskin University’s East Road, Cambridge campus from 12 noon till 4pm on Saturday 13 February 2010.

The workshop leaders, Clark Tracey (drums), and Arnie Somogyi (bass), are both leading instrumentalists, composers, bandleaders and educators. Please visit www.clarktracey.com/ and www.myspace.com/arniesomogyi for further information.

This inaugural workshop is aimed at pianists, guitarists, bass players, drummers and percussionists.

Speaking about the workshop, Paul Jackson, Head of Music and Performing Arts at Anglia Ruskin University, said:

“This is the first event of this kind for us this year and we know that it will be very well supported by many of the hugely talented jazz musicians from the region.”

“Jazz is one of the most enduring genres of music and one which holds a total fascination for both performers and audiences alike.  This master class is just one of a series to be staged in Cambridge during the year.  We look forward to announcing other dates shortly.”
