The ninth season of Maryland Summer Jazz
offers educational opportunities for musicians and jazz lovers. International
jazz artists and professors from many universities will teach and perform in
workshops, jams and public concerts. Headlining this years festival are
artist educators from Brazil, the U.S.A. and Canada: guitarist Steve Rochinski,
trumpeter John Dearth and bassist Leonardo Lucini. The lineup also
includes bassist Amy Shook, pianist Wade Beach, trombonist Jim McFalls and
drummer Harold F. Summey, Jr. Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is artistic director.
The goal of jazz camp is to encourage amateur and semi-pro students to get
out of the basement and onto the bandstand. The day camp provides a
continuing education opportunity for music teachers and gives H.S. and college
students a place to sharpen their skills in the summer. Older players have the
chance to bring their skill and technique to the level of working musicians.
The campus is located at Saint Mark Presbyterian Church (10701 Old Georgetown
Rd., Rockville, MD 20852). Jazz camp registration continues through June 30.
Military and family discounts are available. Call Jeff Antoniuk at 410-295-5591

Like most accomplished jazz
drummers, Tony Martucci has played with an array of gifted musicians. So
when he gets a chance to lead his own recording session, you can bet he'll be
in excellent company. Martuccis new album, Life in
Hand, his fourth as a bandleader, underscores his knack for being
in the right place at the right time with the right collaborators.
