Location & Travel
"Somehow, being away from home frees you up from the usual hangups about your own playing and makes you more willing to experiment. I learnt a lot of important principles here that stay with me today. Burned into my memory are visions of late night jams and french wine."
The International French Jazz Summer School is located in a stunning Chateau in the beautiful vineyards of the Languedoc Roussillon region of France.
The Napoleon III chateau was built in the 1840's and sits amongst the vineyards of this south western region of France. It is near to the stunning medieval fortified town of Carcassonne and the Can du Midi, which passes through the region on its way to the Mediterranean Sea. The nearby village of Ginestas, with its winding streets, cafe's and shops, is an 8 minute walk from the Chateau.
