Back at the VCA

It has been 30 years since I graduated from the VCA, in the inaugural stream of what is now referred to as Improvisation; back then we just called it JAZZ. Today I looked through the newly commissioned studio at the School of Music, delighted to find it has been dubbed the Brian Brown Studio. Brian was both founder, creator and head of the Jazz program. His legacy to the national and international music scene. We lost Brian not that long ago but he will always remain in my fondest memories - a true inspiration and mentor. Tomorrow I'll be recording a short-film score for Blood Trust in this studio and no doubt Brian will pop in for a 'visit.'
