“I think it should be documented, and it can be send around the world and say ‘hey, this is what we are doing here’. And the age ranges from six or seven to sixteen or seventeen… we don’t really see that in the USA, and I travelled all over the world… so to document that and send it to different places I think would be great, it will be great for the world of jazz but great for the world of music, in general.”
