WI Conservatory of Music Jazz Festival
The Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwaukee celebrates the art of jazz this Friday and Saturday. The Wisconsin Conservatory Jazz Festival features saxophonist Benny Golson, trumpeter Brian Lynch, and the conservatory’s own ensemble, We Six, headed by pianist Mark Davis.
Not long ago, we spoke with Davis, the head of the conservatory's jazz program, about his new jazz improvisation method, published by Hal Leonard. While we were there, he recorded a couple of standards for us including Prelude to a Kiss by Duke Ellington.
