David Black – Jazz

  • Jazz player and tutor from Surrey
  • Has deputised for (the Great) Alan Barnes in the past!
  • Member of the Len Phillips Big Band
  • was a student at Berkley College in America  studying ,saxophone, flute, clarinet and piano
  • renowned for his fine, relaxed approach

David has taken over the Jazz Summer School  from the (now retired) Len Phillips (who had run it since 1984!). Len is still helping with first contact for the players, for which we are very grateful as it enables us to organise the ensemble sessions in a balanced way. It also enables David to focus on his term time role as Head of Music at a public school.
