From 27.06 until 03.07.2014 Big Band Tartu took part of world famous Imatra Big Band Festival giving a open-air concert on Big-Band Street and participating on big-band course.
It was a real pleasure to meet and work with wonderful teachers Petri Juutilainen, Jiggs Whigham (USA), Tapio Maunuvaara, Erno Tiikanen, Antti Rissanen, Jouni Järvelä etc. Very useful and inspiring for orchestra. "You play really well, just very few little things to ..." :-)
Also we could lissen a lot of good bands - Arricone BB, UMO-Jazzorchestra, Aili Ikonen, Tampere BB, Junior All Stars BB, Cyntia Scott (USA), Imatra BB etc. Webpage of the festival - http://www.ibbf.fi
