The beauty of Jazz
After running around the Bella Center in Copenhagen,I am back to covering light performances and other fun stuff in the city, thanks to Mini the Ed of the Hindu Metro Plus.Climate Change is the fire in my belly, BUT, after depressing Copenhagen, covering music and literally letting my hair down is a great feeling.
What's nicer is I can use all my experieces to teach the kids in College first hand all about PR since I have the PR kits and the programmes to share with them. I totally believe that journalism cannot be taught by academics and people who have no experience in the line.Its interesting to note how my students enjoy the experiences I relate in class as empirical examples and they spill them out obligingly onto their answer sheets as well.
To go back to Jazz and China Moses who is in the pictures with ace pianist Raphael Lemonnier. The show was a heart stopper. I loved every minute of it and was so sorry I never took Steve along with me.
Anyway, looks like Bangalore is firmly on the jazz map of the world and we will see a lot more artistes coming here to perform.
