On top of his multiple Juno awards, Froman has also been awarded the West Coast Music Award and two Jazz Report Magazine Awards, and also teaches at Berklee and City College.
Join Ian Froman for this interactive listening and analysis Zoom class featuring the Contemporary Jazz Stylings of Tony Williams, Elvin Jones and Jack DeJohnette. There will be in-depth listening and discussion of these major drummers’ roles in developing drumming into the modern era. Transitioning from the 1950’s into the 1960’s and beyond, Ian will play some of his favorite recordings and offer insights into the contribution of these major drummers.
