Northampton Jazz Workshop Featuring London based clarinetist Giacomo Smith


WHAT: Northampton Jazz Workshop Featuring London based clarinetist Giacomo Smith 
WHERE: City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA. 
WHEN: Tuesday, June 11th 7:30-10:30pm

We are excited to welcome back for his second appearance with the gifted London based clarinetist Giacomo Smith. Giacomo will be in Northampton teaching at the Django in June Festival. The first thing that caught my ear when I heard him was his mastery of all the different and powerful sound textures he can summon from his horn. Oh yeah, he can swing hard as well. https://giacomosmithclarinetepk.tumblr.com
