It’s rare for teens and adults to agree on anything, let alone the type of music worth listening to, learning and performing. In this global world of expat families living far away from their extended relations (grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc…) intergenerational mixing is far less frequent.
For this reason, among many, I am proud to share the result of a multi-generational Jazz Group named The Oysters and the Pops, made up of 3 teenagers and 3 quinquagenarians. Through rehearsals and recording, this group shared a unique experience of teaching to, learning from, and playing with each other, in spite of generational differences.
Please have a listen, and share your comments.
