My first blog.
My level of excitement just three months after acquiring my beautiful tenor sax, and from a standing start in music, continues to exceed logic.
But this week it’s at risk of climbing even higher.
My guru Paul has decided it is time to invest in a “proper” mouthpiece so off we go on Thursday to find something that lets me slide, rather than burst, into the first note.
What to buy? How much? What difference to that first note? How much more excitement?
David Fatkin - Trustee
David Fatkin has been a Trustee of Lancaster Jazz Festival since the beginning of 2012. After the festival last year David took up the tenor sax, his first instrument, with lessons from another LJF Trustee, Paul Froggatt. A headliner for 2014 perhaps?
It's less than 4 months to Lancaster Jazz Festival 2012!
We're going to be announcing the full festival programme on the 1st July here on lancasterjazz.com as well as in print but we're letting members in on a sneak peak at a General Meeting on Wednesday 27th June, 7.30pm at The Gregson Centre, Moor Lane, Lancaster.
We'll be running through the festival programme for this year as well as everything we've been up to and hopefully getting your feedback
We want your ideas for things we can do (around the music programme) at this years festival to make it bigger and better
Bring your ideas and thoughts about the future of Lancaster Jazz Festival
We will be formally setting up as a charity with a brand new constitution in order to register as a charity and to ensure the long term stability of Lancaster Jazz Festival
And you'll get to meet our lovely board (below - not quite as scary in real life)

Oh and don't forget the amazing MORECAMBE JAZZ CLUB on the 20th June. 7.30pm at The Hothouse. Two amazing guitarists in the form of Dierdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson with support for just £5.

See you there!
The whole (and lovely) festival team!
Lancaster Jazz Festival is looking for three trutees to fill the vacant positions on the board.
We’re heading effectively into our second year and are looking to establish ourselves as a premier contemporary jazz festival in the UK with great artists from around the country (as well as locally), great original artistic works and great community links. We’re looking for additional trustees who are committed and passionate people who want to see an exciting and original annual jazz festival in Lancaster.
If you're interested then download the application pack and send the completed form to us by the 20th January.
In the new year we're going to be putting out a call for artist submissions for the 2012 festival as well as launching Friends of Lancaster Jazz. This is where you'll be able to have a real say about what we do and what we promote as well as receiving news about the festival before anyone else and receiving some benefits as a thank you for your interest.
We look forward to hearing from you and we hope you have a fantastic new year.
See you in 2012!
