Last week, just after posting some in-depth thoughts on the workshop and mentorship process, Dave started working with students at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Lucky for all of us on this side of the Atlantic, guitarist Alex Roth gives us a detailed account of the week at the London Jazz blog.

Congrats to the Royal Academy of Music as well for receiving the composition archive of Kenny Wheeler who was in attendance for the final big-band concert. For those following Dave on Twitter, perhaps you saw that on top of playing repertoire from the A Single Sky big band album, he debuted a new piece for Kenny titled ‘From Thin Air (for Kenny Wheeler)’. Hoping we can all hear it soon.
