Becoming a patron of the podcast means that you are directly helping the podcast continue. This is a chance for you to help out with the running costs of the podcast, if you feel like you get a lot out of my interviews you can be a part of it by donating a small amount of money.
I will be creating one extra monthly show specifically for my patrons. This is either an interview with a musician I know from the jazz scene or I also create episodes where I listen back to previous shows and chat about some key points that my guests bring up. There are so many great ideas and concepts that these amazing musicians bring up and I would like to share with you some of my favourites!
Tomoko is a jazz violinist from Japan based in NYC. She has a great bop sound and writes really exciting original music. She is currently working on her 3rd studio album with some top players in New York.
Check out Gareths amazing workshop via the link below. He makes lovely violins and is a talented repair and restorer of violins. He is great with set ups and sound adjustments.
The music at the beginning of the episode is Tomoko Omura playing Relaxin at the Camarillo by Charlie Parker
The outro music is my band Latchepen playing Benny Golson's 'Whisper Not'
I feature English violinist John Pearce playing 'Lester Leaps in' by Count Basie at the very end.
